20-ONE on 20-FIRST.!!

Posted on

This is a special birthday post though a little belated, there are several reasons for this post to be special:

  • The first one is well explained in the title.
  • The second one is that even though, I’ve never much understood the reason for celebrating the birthday, this birthday was celebrated at 12, i.e , exactly at 12’o Clock*
  • The best one, this was my birthday in Ramadan.

*Actually, we, by we I mean Me and my siblings have always celebrated our birthdays a week before or after the birthday, the reason being a nerdy one, i.e we didn’t want the birthdays to come in our way of going to the school next morning, since as a child it is always difficult to wake up early If you are sleeping late.

Why do I never get the point of celebrate it, yet I have celebrated it for each and every year of my life, I still think that losing a year of your life isn’t a reason to celebrate, yet the thought that I won’t be celebrating is a little upsetting, may be because we always want a reason to celebrate. 🙂

And after this hasty post, I definitely need to mention that this is my 90th post and I am so glad to blog long enough to write the 90th one on my birthday, and also, that I d not usually use computer in Ramadan but this is an added birthday bonus which I thought to use up for my birthday post. I do have some ideas whirring in my brains for more posts even now, but I’ll be writing those after Eid InshaaAllah. 🙂

I turned 21 on this 21st of July.

Daily Prompt: Local Flavor

Write a piece about a typically “local” experience from where you come from as though it’s an entry in a travel guide.

READ FULL, IT”LL TURN INTERESTING.. PAKISTAN   is a sovereign country in South Asia. With a population exceeding 180 million people, it is the sixth most populous country in the world. Located at the crossroads of the strategically important regions of South Asia, Central Asia and Western Asia, Pakistan has a 1,046-kilometre (650 mi) coastline along the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman in the south and is bordered by, blah blah blaah b–blahhh…

This was the geographical information one would get from the introductory part of a typical tour guide, from my view-point, it is different, we Pakistani people, mostly, are foodies, and it is a routine to deviate from our target and get diverted towards the food..                                                                                                                               One such evening, and that a year or two ago, we went to achieve some well-planned target, I don’t exactly remember what it was but I clearly remember that it was round 5 in the evening, and after sometime, everyone, except me felt hungry, so they all ordered a typical chana chaat, because we were in one of the typical food areas in KARACHI.. I just tried a bite from my mom’s bowl, I felt hungry but I didn’t say anything because it was against my ego, but my mom offered me another and I got started, I took another, and another, and another bite, in short bite after bite, I alone emptied half of it without realizing what I had done..  It was an amazing experience really.. I had a great time..
