Welcome 2017





If I could give a title to 2016 (on a personal level), I'd call it 'year of opportunity'.  On so many occasions, personally and professionally, I found myself trying something new and challenging myself to do more than what I believed I was capable of. Some things worked and some did not. The blog, for instance, kept going on despite my really busy and tiring work life. It was a surprise that I did not give up something I could have done very easily otherwise. 

Here we are standing at the end of 2016 and waiting to begin a new year. The perfect time to introspect and plan. Here is some random introspection and planning….

Guest Post: The Maldivian Diaries



Ta Da!!! This is the first guest post on my blog. *Drum roll please* My dear friend, Salwa Musani, had this amazing vacation in Maldives that she was documenting on her Facebook page. I convinced her to do a post for this blog as I loved her detailed explanation. And….  she did it for me and for all of you! How adorable is that! I hope you find it useful. 

Enjoy!

Restoran Sedap (Restaurant Sedap)





You know when you do not live in your home country, every restaurant that serves your country's food becomes like a second home. Hubby and I explore every place that serves Pakistani food. We heard about Restoran Sedap that serves Pakistani, Indian and Malaysian food recently opened in Publika - a mall in Kuala Lumpur. On the long weekend we decided to go and check it out.

Celebrating a Decade of Love ....




"I have now been married ten years. I know what it is to live entirely for and with what I love best on earth. I hold myself supremely blest — blest beyond what language can express; because I am my husband's life as fully as he is mine"
- Charlotte Brontë

My Truck Art Inspired Mugs



Do you remember my short travel stories series on Facebook that I started when I was traveling to Pakistan? If not, you can view it here. I ended my series of Pakistan with a photograph of colourful kettles and mugs that people really liked. I did not get the chance to buy them while I was in Pakistan but I searched for an online shop to order these unique art pieces for myself. I am not a very avid online shopper but I was so in love with these beautifully hand painted mugs inspired by amazing Pakistani Truck Art that I decided to order them online!

First Year of Blogging - 7 Lessons Learned





It is still a bit hard to digest that my blogging journey is one year old already! I am so excited that I wanted to throw a party, had my hubby not given me that stare of disbelief at even considering doing one. So, I decided to celebrate in my own way and announced a giveaway that I myself would love to win one day. The giveaway is closed for entries now and winner will be announced on the 21st November 2016 but, you can see the details here.

During this little journey of one year, I did make some observations and learned a few things. I decided to share them in this post with all of you. Especially, if you are considering of creating a blog, this might prepare you for what will come your way
