the BIG event! :D

..As my driver impatiently honks through the traffic at Clifton...swearing loudly...i sit at the back, clutching my handbag, and those numerous shopping bags, of J.J, Khadi,Mumtaz Abdullah, Threads & Motives and Sentiments. with this satisfied smile over my face. i had literally surfed through every mall and bazzare of  Karachi with my sister and had shopped till <my driver had> dropped...<seriously i admire his patience to wait for someone like me who is as dreadfully and unbeatably indecisive as me>


its 12:30pm yet still....the roads are crammed full of cars,bikes,rickshaws,buses,chinichis...and whatever kinda transport you can dream of...i mean like even gadha garis!:P.
 but i soooo love it!:D:D:D
 



 it reminds me that Eid is almost at our doorsteps...and its preparations and shoppings are banging at our doors!:D
i love the way its the only day i wake up early in the morning....to have breaksfast...<3
i love the way it makes us sooo rich with EIDI!:D
i love the way its only eid when i can actually see the floor of my room.
i love the way i wear like something OTHER THAN my normal pajamas...in other words, something more PRESENTABLE =P
i love the chan chan of bangles....and the aroma of mehendi <3

and i love love love the way the whole of KARACHI is so dressed up.
the way each dhaba is lighted up with small shimmery lights...
and the way smiles could be seen across everyones face....the siwayyan and the sheer khurma...<even though i must admit i personaly dont like them..yet they still add a charm to eid>  oh and the chapli kababs and cakes....<3

also i love the way its the first time all masjids are crammed full of people for the Eids special namaz, and the way everyone greets a BIG eid mubarak to each, forgetting all their differences and enmity.

to all the Pakistanis: lets hope this eid will still be as beautiful and joyous as it usually is, lets all pray that we dont get to see anymore sad faces, death, funerals and violence on the roads of karachi...lets hope that the politicians atleast wait for Eid to get past them before solving their never ending disputes...and lets hope that the "hungami halat" of pakistan dont take place on eid day...:)
ameen!
have an awesome eid everyone :) <3
