Fakir Khana Museum

Weekend included a visit to the Fakir Khana Museum, which was such a fun experience. I couldn’t take my car all the way into the inner city of Lahore, and so we parked on Food Street and walked up to the museum. The roads are bustling, and for a weekend, was crowded, with shops, salons…

Que Rico – Spanish cuisine in Lahore!

Que Rico, the Spanish restaurant in Lahore proved to be a hit and miss affair. Que Rico may take you to Spain in bits and pieces, but best avoided if you want real Spanish food.

Over Coming Fears via #Xdubai #Zipline #Xline

It was in 2016 when I first heard about the XDubai, a group that advocated extreme sports and stunts in Dubai. It was the kind of thing I had always wanted to get into: jump off skyscrapers, ride BMX bike up and down the crazy routes, and ultimately skydive! On my recent trip to Dubai,…

ZipLine Xperience

On a recent trip to Dubai, I signed up for the Zip Line experience. This takes place at Dubai Marina and is the world’s longest urban zipline. The video covers the entire experience, and I still don’t know what possessed me to go ahead and try this out. The feeling of flying down the zipline…

Che-Won: Korean Food in Lahore at its Best!

It had been more than four years since I went to Udon House, a small Korean eatery that had opened up by a cute Korean couple. The woman would prepare and cook the meals herself in the open plan kitchen, and I remember at that time how popular it had become with the Lahoris. Last…

Padmavaati

My biggest fear while watching Padmaavati was that it will be like Bhansali’s previous outing Bajirao Mastani. Both movies are based on historical characters, set in 13th century or so, revolving around a love triangle set in an era where matters are solved through battles. My fears were wiped away as soon as Padmaavati started…

The Commuter

My first reaction to hearing of Liam Neeson’s new movie The Commuter was “oh no! not again! this movie will be Taken part god knows what now!” I have to admit I made a mistake.
