Converting the Most Hated Drink on the Planet to the Most Loved Ice Cream

After giving us amazing flavors, McDonald’s Malaysia has decided to make the most hated drink on the planet into the most loved ice cream. I am on cloud nine!!! Mc Donald’s Malaysia has introduced a new Japanese flavor to Malaysia!!! It’s the GREEN TEA MCFLURRY!!!

dessert-promotion-1a-d710354e79

The picture of Green Tea McFlurry looks appetizing, and the Malaysian crowd is responding with much zeal and zest. The Mcflurry is being served with red beans or without for “the perfect balance of taste and texture”. Just look at the fun-filled advertisement of Green Tea McFlurry below. My mouth waters every time I watch the video. I can hardly wait to set my hands on the astounding treat!

The introduction of the new flavor has started a new battle on Twitter. vs . While some want both flavors in their grasps, most have decided to choose one of the two champions by captioning this: “Dear crush, I want a ’cause it’s sweet. . . like you.” or “Dear crush, I want a ’cause it’s sweet. . . like you.”. Catchy, eh?! And some took the opportunity to share their eternal love for the classics and/or for their crushes.

Therefore, get a passport to chill land and defeat the summer by going to the nearest McDonald’s outlet now and don’t forget to share your experience.

Buses in Pakistan-Art on Wheels

Pakistanis are art lovers. They like expressing their views and desires through works of painting. You don’t have to walk towards the art to feast your eyes, the art will come towards you. Ladies and Gentlemen! I introduce you to the bus/truck art of Pakistani buses! Have a look at a typical bus and some of the common symbols found on the buses.

Picture1

The buses are extensively utilized, as canvases, by the craftsmen to express their feelings. In some cases, they are words of wisdom and/or homage to a celebrity.

And sometimes, the bumpers are exhibited with interesting quotes or verses, which honestly, keeps us very engaged and entertained throughout the road journey. 😀 Enjoy a portion of the ridiculously  cheesy and meaningless poetry (The translations have been written under the picture).

My heart is full of love for you

Heart for Sale. Price=Only One Smile
Picture7
No Girlfriend, No Tension
Picture8
Keep Distance-Else You will Fall in Love with Me

The beauty does not lie on the outside only. The inside walls, ceilings and the seat covers are decorated meticulously in a similar fashion.

The bus/truck art has been widely appreciated globally. A W-11 tram was run in Australia, and one of the trucks was exhibited in the London Zoo.

And a bus was run in Turkey as a symbol of Pak-Turk friendship.

The historical art is prevailing in the country for decades and is cherished by the citizens. All thanks to the hardworking artists of Pakistan.

If your passport is made and you like traveling, visit Pakistan to treat your eyes. Keep yourself tuned for the next post about “Chinchi”, another popular form of transport in Pakistan.

Happy Pakistan Day

Happy Pakistan Day everyone!!!! 😀

Today, Pakistan celebrates the 77th anniversary of Pakistan Resolution Day, also known as Pakistan Day or Republic Day. The Lahore Resolution was passed on 23rd March 1940 at Minar-e-Pakistan after several efforts made by the Father of the Nation, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. It marks the adoption of the first constitution of Pakistan. On this auspicious event, I would like to show you some of the beauty of Pakistan.

Some of the famous monuments of Pakistan.

Wishing everyone a happy Pakistan Day, I would like to say one last thing:
May the enmity and symptoms of hatred cease between different countries. May the world unite over the similarities rather than divide over the differences. May the tolerance and acceptance increase between the nations. Pakistan Zindabad. Pakistan Paindabad.

Letter from the Future

The last glacier has melted,

The last tree has fallen,

Oh dear father, I wish you had not kept me forgotten.

You destroyed my future,

While you made your present,

Now you have caused my generation’s descent.

With the rising sea levels,

Soon, my little home will sink.

I have ash to eat and sand to drink.

I am surrounded by skyscrapers,

I have the cash,

With no trees on the planet, those are worthy of trash.

While you took shower,

With gallons of water,

I crave for a drop of it, as the Earth has gotten hotter.

I seek shelter from the Nature’s disaster,

I can’t buy joy,

Why did you cause my home to destroy?

On this World Water Day, let’s vow to save our planet for the future generation. Trading our acceptance for the love of material world, we need to resolve the problems caused by our continued journey towards materialism. We should not wait for more symptoms to illuminate before we take action.

With minimal effort, you can bring a greater change in the world. Imagine if one family planted one tree per month, there will be 12 trees per year. Multiply 12 with the number of families living in your neighborhood and you will get hundreds of trees in your lane. 🙂

Save yourself by saving the world. 🙂

When You Hate the Sun and the Sun Hates You

I live in a country where the sun loves me so much that it is always on the mission to hug me. Yes, I live in Karachi, Pakistan. And those of you who live in sunny countries will understand this: When we go to the beach, we don’t lie down under the sun and get tanned. We sit under a shade and put lots of sunscreen, and dreadfully, check our skins every five minutes to see how dark it has become. Well, now you don’t have to worry about it. Try the new Vaseline Healthy White Instant Fair Lotion and enjoy the picnic at the beach.

Don’t take this post wrong. I am not a racist. I don’t care if someone is fair or dark. I, myself, have a Pakistani wheatish skin color. But there are times when your skin gets sunburned when you go out in the sun. The skin becomes red at first, then brown, and then it starts to peel off. That doesn’t sound like something that you would want anyone to have, does it? That is why I was extremely happy when I received Vaseline Healthy White Instant Fair Lotion.

Honestly, at first I was slightly doubtful about the result. But after I tried the product, I must say that I was surprised and extremely happy.

Let me show you how it worked. jfafjla

I want to be an artist, but I have no talent

I want to be an artist, but I have no talent!

I love playing Pictionary. It has become a family tradition and we play the game wherever we hang out, whenever we hang out (Last time, we ended up playing it for consecutive four hours until 4 am). And every time, we end up laughing crazily because the game is super hilarious! I mean, I literally get tears of laughter, looking at the pathetic drawings of others. And, to be honest, my “artistic drawings” are not artistic at all. They are barely comprehensible.

For those of you who don’t know what Pictionary is, the rules are as follows. Teams of two compete against each other. One person from each team knows what the word is and he/she has to draw the word (and NOT spell it) on the board or paper. The team to guess the word first wins.

Simple, right? Well, it isn’t as easy. As soon as you get to know the word, the image of the word vanishes from your mind! 😀 I had to pause for a few minutes to think about what a frog looks like! 😀 Doubt me? Draw a frog right now and see it for yourself! 😀 😀

Here are the pictures of the drawings we made. I have added the names to the ridiculous pictures to make them identifiable. Have fun! 😀

Why I Am a Terrible Hiker

I am a terrible hiker! There! I said it! Wow, I feel relieved!

I love hiking, trekking, and camping, and I do it regularly so I have a pretty good stamina. But God, you would not want to go with me! I am a terrible hiker!

Last year, in Malaysia, I organized an event called Noche de Campo, which is Spanish for Camp Night. (Spanish speakers, pardon me! My Spanish friends named the event and I thought it sounded “classy and funky” so I agreed to it). 😀 We camped near a lake, gathered wood stock and had this huge bonfire. We sang, danced around it. It was fun. I helped in cooking and setting up camps. I also assisted in equipment replacement.

You want to hear why am I a terrible hiker? Wait for it…

So at each and every task, someone would always do something that ONLY I would find funny. Not funny, no no. Hilarious! And I mean super hilarious! I would get a fit of laughter and I would spend the next ten minutes laughing my lungs out while everybody watched me with blankly! I am pretty sure some of the hikers laughed with me at first (“with me”, “at me” who knows) but after a few minutes, they would be like “She is crazy” 😀

So there you go! Unless you find unnoticeable things unnecessarily funny, DO NOT hike/camp with me!

Notice the above pictures. I am laughing in all of them 😀

Dear Trump Family,

Dear Trump Family,

I am a Muslim and I want to say that I stand with the citizens of U.S.A. And I know that the Americans stand with us. Please know that we (the Muslims) understand that the Trump family’s ethics DOES NOT represent America’ faith, culture or race, just as the Islamic extremists’ groups’ practices do not represent us.

I want to thank all the Americans with all my heart for standing up for the discrimination against our faith. Thank you for showing love and compassion to us. Please do not get scared of us. Our religion does not promote terrorism. Nor does Christianity. We respect Christianity as much as we respect Islam. Let the words “Islamophobia” and “Christianphobia” die.

I want to request all to not read phrases out of context out of any Holy Book, be it the Holy Bible, the Holy Quran or the Holy Gita. I want to request the Trump Family to unite with the people of this world against the terrorists, NOT against the faith these terrorists PRETEND TO BELONG TO.

The world is already dividing over the artificial man-made boundaries between the countries. Please do not divide it further through physical walls. We are all sharing one Earth and this is the only planet we have got. Please do not destroy it with hatred. May peace prevail.

Yours sincerely,

The Muslims around the world.

 

The Day I Saved A Person From Dying

I have an awesome announcement to make! I donated my blood!!!!!!!!! 😀 😀

It may sound ordinary to some people but it was an amazing milestone for me! 🙂 For years, I have been wanting to donate blood and help people in need. And this time I got the perfect opportunity at HOPES Health Expo 2017. 🙂 (The blood bag with the orange label in the above picture).

HOPES Health Expo was organized by HOPES (Help of Patients in Exigency by Students) students of Karachi Medical & Dental College (KMDC) at Expo Centre, Karachi. Collaborating with other medical universities of Karachi, the event was a huge success!

Thousands of people turned up for the event where free medical tests were being run. The tests included:

  • Blood test
  • Thalassemia
  • Hepatitis test
  • Calcium test
  • ENT (Ear Nose Throat)
  • Dental checkups
  • BMI (Body-Mass-Index)
  • Diabetes test
  • Eyesight test
  • Dermatologist
  • Breast Cancer
  • Obesity check

The top-left picture shows me enjoying the yellowish, honey-mint drink. (But, to be honest, it tasted like mouthwash 😀 ) Contrary to my expectation, I didn’t get symptoms of dizziness after the loss of blood. So it was a win-win situation. 🙂

Despite the presence of thousands of people, the event was well-organized. Thanks to Pakistan Welfare Association (PWA) and Karachi Medical & Dental College for organizing HOPES Health Expo 2017

I want to encourage everyone to visit the nearest blood bank/hospital and donate your blood. Your contribution may save someone and extend their lives.
