This has to be one of my favourite songs lately, it’s from a Pakistani TV series called “Digest Writer”, produced by Hum TV.
Here are the lyrics, and I’ve tried my hand at translating it as well.
I honestly hate auto-playing videos on Facebook, and I’m sure many of you do too. With the most recent update of Google Chrome, it’s more messed up, so now you get stutters on every auto-playing video. Here’s a quick tip on how to stop this annoyance.
Yesterday my father and I were visiting Al Ghail, a freezone industrial area of Dhaid City. This is an industrial freezone at the start of Ras Al Khaimah. Needed some product samples so we traveled across these cities. Apparently the directions weren’t clear enough, and despite calling the person multiple times, till the end we didn’t get a clear landmark we could refer to.
I’ve been saying this for quite some time but over the years the realization has been far stronger than ever. Especially since I moved out of the country, and when I return I cannot help but feel it all around me, making me feel that I’m doing something wrong if I’m not taking a shortcut.

Been in Dubai now for 5 months, the city rocks I tell you! Let not anyone tell you or deter you from visiting it, the opinions will vary with every single person, their perspectives on life and of course what they are here for.
As for me, I am glad to have landed an opportunity within the first month of being here, working full time since then as a Project Head for a really dynamic digital and communications agency in Dubai. Really love the team.
You’ve all probably seen the entire joke of the year lasting a good 5 hours on the streets of Islamabad, Pakistan, streamed right to your tellies. A few of my friends even commented that probably cinema crowds may have reduced thanks to the live action movie on the streets.
