Rains

April diaries

This month marked our 3 month crazy-happy-fun-whirlwind kinda marriage and a new start to a day routine with Mr’s new job. Its actually a happy moment when you devour in life with all the goodness it has to offer. I’ve always thought confetti is the best way to celebrate, although this year onward we found new meaning to celebrating with bubbles. Blowing bubbles can be fun if they dont pop on your face or close to the eyes. The MR and I have had sudden cravings to blow bubbles and laugh off the stress this city provides.

Bubbles

With burnt ‘kinda’ brownies and starbucks coffee turned into a homemade version of cold coffee, our cravings for desserts aint stopping much! But its fun, living with a person who enjoys life as much as you do. Happy happy feeling. Alhamdolillah. Reminds me of how blessed we are, with April thundershowers, Electricity outrages..oh well. Sometimes the UPS gives up toooooooooooo(n). With greenery around the house that smells fresh brings in more energy and inspiration to work. The smell of rain and the earth quenching its thirst. it always calls for pakoras and an Ammi to enjoy with. Aaah… the pleasures of having a fun M-I-L.

Talking about inspiration, CANNOT live without art and design. Just CAN NOT! So heads up to the month of May. Mothers day is right around the corner and the Creative person inside me is spot on working on mothers day orders. The first batch went home a few days back! Making it special for Mothers all around the WORLD. Wooohoooo!!! GPCS does it once again! 🙂
All in all, April is running by fast! Allah mian, Thankyou oh So very much for being Super Meherbaan on us. Will need it always! 😀

Mothers day 2013


From Ramzan to Rozay wali Eid 2011

With ammi baba being back to town, things are awesomely family oriented 😀 and yes thats a BIG smile. Someone to look forward to when you come home from work, sehri’s and iftars were great this time round. Though the rozas were looooong.. 15 hours or so but we managed pretty well. Thanks to Allah that we had gorgeous weather throughout the blessed month. somedays were tiring, exhausting and hectic but Alhamdolillah a well spent ramzan. With workload and time for a heart to heart session with Allah mian was managed pretty well 😀

Chand raat was spent with friends and later at home applying mehendi – MY way 🙂
Eid came and Ada and family were missed. Eid in karachi was SO much fun. Though we were home most of the time but still… it rained. Allah mian literally showered us with His blessings. Alhamdolillah. Beautiful rain on eid. Amazing breakfast. Skype with the family in Dxb 🙂 Family values right there.. yes they make me happy 😀
Beautifully wrapped Eidi from saad made my day ❤

3rd say of eid was Ami’s birthday. We celebrated like theres no tomorrow. A Midnight donut party and ended the day with a nandos family dinner which made ammi very happy. Alhamdolillah 😀

ps. i love mehendi and yes Nandos cake and peri bites are PURE indulgence 😀


Baarish 2011

Finally, karachi saw a little of the rain. Veryyyy little but it brought the mitti ki khushbu that one longs for. the pressure built up, humidity… and eventually it poured leaving me in awe after i saw the beautiful sky. Amidst the greys appeared a streak of orange.. What a beauty! SubhanAllah. The after effects left me happy, with winds blowing.
Thankyou Allah Mian 🙂


…bring me back.. THAT!

Oh, i love rains. We’ve been longing for a rain shower now. Alhamdolillah, He heard us all yet again. Awesome weather till now.
Trees fresh, smiling happily. The crows and pigeons all drenched with rain water. Puddles of water on the streets where kids splash. Halwa puri. Elevator stopped working. Songs that are meant to be heard in this weather are up aloud. Pakoray and harri chattni. Missing ammi while she has a blast in Ahmedabad, India.
What joy this rains brings to everyone, the greens look fresher and the sky shines. Missing the gang.
*Blessed*
