Welcome to my Blog! Woohoo!
I am an architect by profession, working at Sukh Chayn Gardens, a state of the art housing society in Lahore, Pakistan. I grew up in the Red Sea city of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, after which I have lived in the United States and the United Arab Emirates before moving back to Lahore in 2007.
An avid writer, reader, movie-goer (horror movies are my thing!), foodie and traveler, I like to review my experiences in Pakistan and abroad. I have also started Lahore Book Club with my friend, and we continue to hold meetings over which books are discussed.
I am fortunate enough to be signed on by Royal Palm Golf and Country Club to publish my book reviews. I blogs as a contributor on Huffington Post. Of late, I’ve also been signed on by Liberty Books, to join a privileged group of Book Bloggers in Pakistan. In addition to this, I’ve had my articles published in The Nation newspaper.
Traveling is my passion as I seek to conquer one new country each year from 2014. In 2014 it was India, in 2015 it was Scotland, in 2016 it was family-time in London and in 2017 it was Spain. 2018 will be about Russia. I am also an extreme thrill-seeker and can ride wild roller coasters all day long.
I am currently studying to be a psychotherapist from CPCAB, UK and will soon be opening up my own private practice. I love to bake his popular red velvet brownies for my friends, and they will soon be available to the public in general through my baking venture Bake My Day.
I am also working on a book which I hope to publish by the time he turns 45. The book is about his life growing up in Saudi Arabia and chronicles his journey of how he overcame his hardships in life, especially as I dealt with bullying.
At the end of day, my life is consumed with gratitude, which I believe is the root of achieving happiness and peace in life.
