I was in Karachi last week for 5 days and had a really good time. I had never been to Karachi before. Actually, this is the first time in over 15 years I’ve gone to Pakistan!! Yeah.. I know.. it’s been thaaaaaaaat long!! I’m glad I got a chance to go there. A lot of things needed to be done: get the wedding cards printed, give measurements for a sherwani for the wedding, buy shalwar-kurta for the nikkah and mehndi, see the venue for the walima, book the rooms for guests coming from outside Karachi, and do some shopping! I got some super stuff like antiques, shawls, silver decorations, leather goods etc… the real thing at amazing prices… the same would have cost an arm and a leg here in dubai! The food was great… there’s a huge Barbeque Tonight restaurant (like the one in dubai) and the food is like wow!! Chanced upon the Lacoste store in the Forum mall and they had a 50% off sale. Got some nice stuff. The Espresso café in DHA has the most amazing chocolate cake!! All in all it was a fun trip and a good change from the dubai!
The work isn’t over yet though! I still have a lot to do before it’s all done. BTW, if anyone’s interested and wants to come to my wedding then here it is:
August 2 – Nikkah – at home
August 3 – Menhdi ceremony – Carlton Hotel, D.H.A.
August 4 – Wedding ceremony – Golf Club, D.H.A.
August 5 – Walima ceremony – Creek Club, D.H.A.
