^ sounds like you got a better deal than we did. I was looking forward to this storm and it started off promisingly with grumbly thunder and lightning, but it kind of gave up after about 15 mins like it couldnt be bothered with the drama.

Well humsafar did smash tv rating records for a drama in pakistan..

But its good to know people there like to stay in touch with popular desi culture. I cant help but imagine though the image they have of pakistani homes : melodramatic saas-bahu fights caused by evil scheming jealous rishtedars while the husband attempts to woo his original love lol

where is everyone, why have some people unregistered :'/

All of us have been here, you were MIA for a long time yourself. Maybe lost in salat ul Layl...

Don't say bad things about the humsafar. The title song was the smash hit so was the show. I loved the bad saas character, she played the conspiracy wielding paki auntie really good. Khirad was awesome and so was the dude. The 2nd half was little bit stretched too far but chalay ga.

My favorite was the second one though, the Shehar-e-Zaat. Was more mystical and was a little effort of pakis overly elaborate asraaf culture. I read the novel which is even better.

Thoughts: these are 3 bright nights, Layl at ul abyaz.. Don't forget to read and ponder on Dua-e-Mujeer.

Congratulations on the birth of Imam Hassan and Imam Taqi (as).

meh, humsafar was too lovey-dovey. i couldnt finish it. nowadays dramas are wayyy tooo romantic, and none of the actors/actresses know how to act. we were watching "dil e muztar"a few weeks ago, and the main couple was being all poetic and cheap.. what is pakistan doing :wacko:

barey shehron mein theres a TON of desi culture. hum bilkul goray nahi hain :P haha, desis are just as melodramatic in real life as they are in dramas. theres a ton of gossiping aunties here, so we dont miss out on any of the pagalpana haha

Humsafar's music was great, that's all I like about it....the only time i watch dramas is when my mother or sis has the remote and I have nothing better to do...

being in love is the 'in' thing in pakistan right now.... poor teenage souls are binging on chocolates and sheeshas mending their broken hearts...all the while uploading lovey-dovey statuses and emo pics on facebook...

 

 and i just realised the melodramatic picture shown is true, which is sad -_-

duuude, pakistanis need a couple of thappars and chappals... i miss the old dramas, where the main characters would die and be miserable. at least it was realistic :Lol:

you know, my ammi tells me all sorts of paki stories about fulan and fulan like each other and send letters to one another. then they get caught and get shipped off and married to their 50 year-old cousins and stuff like that. kya aaj ke desi bachein dartey nahi hain? :no:

Totally, ammas and abbas of this generation don't use sticks, hangers and/or leather belts on their kids anymore..these things and the strictness that accompanies them teaches kids their place. Instead we see kids totally outta control, spoiled to the max. with their parents nodding to everything they're asked for and letting it go every time little ali comes back after a fight..

 

and the curse of technology( i sound like a 60 year old sayin that lol) allows them access to stuff they shouldn't know about and connectivity that has no parental control. every brat owns an iphone and expresses his true love on whatsapp, viber and skype..

and love marriages are more common than ever..

bunch of wusses

 

 

 

rant lol

Who did they consult when the tremendous decision to deface the sky without interval was made? And to whom are men accountable if they have no such permission?

 

Looking at the stars in the city and out of each periphery a plane. Criminal. Absolutely and abominably criminal.

Noisy because of busy road, and the check in is at another building. And the bathroom is old etc. 

 

But actually it doesn't matter, as long as it's a place to sleep and there's wifi and a bathroom it's ok lol. At least it's near the sight seeing stuff :p

O sweet, i didnt realise you meant a holiday, i thought maybe you were just very desperate to leave where you are. The trips ive had to London have only been day trips, i never stayed over night. The one thing i didnt do that i really wanted to is visit Tate Modern. O and the big ferris wheel must be cool on a clear day.
