Mid summer love

I'm not on a very hectic study schedule and so I have time to open my eyes, look around, shake away the numbness and fall in love again ! So what am I in love with these days ? Here it goes...

1 -  Loving the  food

Seven layered 'Death by chocolate' cake from 'Pie in the Sky'..No matter how many times or how much I eat it, it still tastes divine. Ooh that mousse and cream and chocolate...ummm..its simply-a- killer ! I somehow deleted the picture from my pc !! And that should be a sobering thought for all those who are on a diet these days !

2 - Loving the Brand

If there's a brand I'm in love with these days, it has gotta be 'Saeed Ghani'. They manufacture skin, hair, and nail care products..and what makes them different ??? all their products are herbal ! No chemicals and hence no unwanted side effects. The fact that their products are herbal makes them cheaper too. And variety is simply astounding, hair conditioners, facial masks, scrubs, massage oils, cleansers, henna, kohl and what not. Name it, they got it ! My mom's an ultimate fan, there's no way she leaves the shop with at least a bag full of purchase.

3 - Loving the Song

'Paimona' a classic song by Zeb and Haniya.This isn't exactly a very new song and is actually a poem by "Omar Khayyam"  but I was recently introduced to it by a friend.Zeb and Haniya make the first female band of Pakistan and featured their debut 'Chup' about 2 - 3 years back. Of all my mid summer loves this one is THE closest to my heart..The instrument you'll hear playing for the first  1:14  mins is called 'rubab' a musical instrument popular in Persia and Afghanistan. The song is in Persian so I couldn't understand it the first time I heard it but I later found a subd version, so here it goes..Don't miss it ( or you'll regret it for sure !)

4 - Loving the Possession

I'm currently really happy of buying these pair of sandals I bought from the mall while out shopping with friends..

5 - Loving the book

30 second successories by Faez Saeyal .. Its got 365 quotations and an inspirational message for every day of the year.

6 - Loving the TV show

Daam (Trap) by Mahreen Jabbar.Here's a prelude of the story which I got from the official website.Zahra Hidayatullah and Maliha Sami have been close friends for over seven years. Zahra belongs to a lower middle class family and Maliha comes from an upper class household, yet their class difference has never threatened their unbreakable bond. Maliha has been there for her friend through many hardships, though she never really knew the extent of the mental anguish that plagued Zahra's life.
The first blow to their friendship domes when Maliha's older brother Junaid, shows his interest in marrying Zahra. Her parents have no objection to the union, but it comes as a real shock to Maliha. Somehow Maliha is not able to fathom the thought that her best friend could marry her only brother. Daam is the story of the price that she pays to her best friend to stop this marriage and how that price becomes a Daam (trap) for all of them.

Here's the trailer


The reason I'm loving it is that its wonderfully directed and I just love stories based on friendships and student life.

8 -Lovin to wait for

My birthday in July, and the secret present that Uzma is making me. She couldn't keep the secret that she is making something, Lol. The nature of the present is still unknown to me though !

9 - Loving the saying

This is actually a hadith (saying by the holy prophet, peace be upon him)

“Treasure five things before five others: Your youth before old-age; your health before illness; your wealth before poverty; your free time before becoming occupied, and your life before death." [Source - Tirmidhi]

I really like how all the things we usually are unthankful of and later regret are summarised in this one saying.

10- Loving the hobby

I am a change in the change . Yeah I guess thats how I can most accurately describe myself. I can absolutely love something I hated doing to the core previously or can suddenly be uninterested in something that had been a life line. One of the places I'm least found at, is the Kitchen. All my trips to the kitchen usually do not last more than 5 mins (Thats exactly how much time it takes to drink water and grab something from the fridge ) But these days, I'm loving experimenting with all the ingredients and making something different (and edible !)

11- Loving the drink

I'm up for anything with Lemon or orange in it. Its basically the flavour I like but I get the added advantage of getting sufficient Vitamin C's. And of course the two ultimate heat freezing drinks that I've mentioned here

12- Loving the Ice cream

Strawberry Cheesecake !!!!

13 - Loving the ultimate summer commodity

My sunglasses ! With a thin (very thin) row of bling on the edge.

14 - Loving the to wear

Anything made out of the fabric - lawn ! Thats what possibly every female in Pakistan wears in the summers. I love it because its airy, light and absorbs sweat. We have lawn exhibitions by most brands in the start of summer every year to display their new and exclusive designs and variety, lawn has evolved from simply fabric to a fashion statement over the years.The choice of having them stitched to suit your needs, rests on you.Prices range from Rs 350 - 3000 per dress. 

15 - Loving to say

"Zabardast"  ( Great)
