Haagen-Dazs

One of the best international ice-cream, actually American brand but franchises are available all over the world. I had this ice cream first time when I was in Paris and a friend of mine introduces me to this brand in a way “have you ever tasted Haagen-Daaz’’? I said no, and then straight away he took me to the market, buy me a 500ml cup of Haagen-Daaz. This was the first time when I had this ice cream and after that I was a fan of it. I recently had it in Manchester and thought I should have shared it with people. So in my opinion, THE BEST, and the good news is this, it is also available in Pakistan. There is no proper parlor of it but it’s very easy to find it on Esajee. Price is bit expensive comparatively but if you are ice cream lover then it’s worth having it once. So try it and enjoy it.IMG_1110 IMG_1113 IMG_1111

MAHI FOODS

Whattay a food! Ok let me get back to my normal state. Actually Mahi Foods fish & chips make me nostalgic everytime I eat it. They take me back to London *sobs*. They have some delicious, mouth-watering sea food.
Let me share my experience how I got to know about it.
I got bored of eating same food on daily basis in my office, wanted some variety. So I started surfing on web if I can get something delivered. And after a few searches I saw “Mahi Seafood” fan page on Facebook.
After scanning the menu card, I took a breath of relief – as the dishes & prices both fascinated me.

I called them up and as per my budget, very promptly I asked for Fish Finger :p for my delight, the person (order-taker) asked me if I was ordering for the first time. I said YES! And then I was advised to go for Fish & Chips since he wanted to make an impression on me I was like fine if you want to rob me with my money  but then it was not a FREE delivery as I wanted them to deliver to a corner of the city. And they charged me a nominal fee of Rs. 50/- for which I did not resist at all.
Within 30mins, a very well presentable person showed up to deliver my lunch. When he was entering my office I thought some “guest” is showing up but…
Well the food was “hot” which I thought would not have been due to the distance. The food was delicious, tempting, and very filling. Guess what it was not only Fish & Chips but they give a dip (tartar, sweet chilli, tamarine mixture) & ketchup in 2 different boxes, along with a bun (roll).
I ate it like a Queen ;)

Next time, which was “obviously” within a fortnight, I ordered again and was given complimentary shrimps to taste. Now I am their regular customer, they remember me! :D and provide me complimentary food items to taste (which is very exciting ;))
Do try it; you’ll be mesmerized with the taste & thought that you are eating London’s Fish & Chips.

Moreover they have dine-in, take away, home delivery options along with frozen boxes for the fishes & prawns which are available in grocery stores as well.

Thunderstorm In Lahore

This morning my alarm wasn’t with me but I wake up at morning prayer time with the noise of heavy rain. Heavy rain drops on my window cooler get me out of the bed. I said my Fajar prayer and then go out to look at the weather. Rain was stopped but it was all brownish yellow with flashes and high speed wind. Whole sky was covered with dark clouds which were making noises really heavily.

Well I came inside and start using internet, after some time I again hear the rain noise and go outside to see the rain. This is the first time I’ve seen such furious rain in my life time. Rain with high speed wind. My house’s garage is covered with terrace but due to that strong wind, rain wet whole garage and entrance door as well. May this rain not bring any accidents or bad news

Gulabi Bagh Gateway And Tomb Dai Anga

Gulabi Gate Lahore

Above photos is a gateway to Gulabi Bagh (Rose Garden) and as we pass this gate, there is a tomb of Dai Anga (see description below). This is a historical building and constructed in truly Mughal style architecture. Recently our Govt. has taken some action and put some lights on it which glow up this beautiful artistic piece of building.

This Gateway and Tomb Dai Anga is on G.T. Road near to U.E.T. (University of Engineering & Technology) Lahore. It is easily visible from road but gate is always closed and people use to jump over the fence to go in there. But these visitors don’t come to see the beauty art piece or enjoy the garden but to sit privately, have a chit chat, can smoke and use drugs. Some part of this garden is occupied by illegal houses which lessen down the beauty of park. Below is the description written about Gulabi Bagh Gateway and Dai Anga’s Tomb. Continue reading
