Life is so full of colors! Its a mess, until you dont take it one at a time. It just takes up your whole life thinking when and where to start, and the moment you take the step you have problems right in front of you and you feel; is this where you really want to go towards? Its a really big question, which comes up in your mind and then again you fall back into the same old circle: where to start thinking. Its a real pisser I know. I am being to cinicle about it, but that is how life goes about bashing up things, that you never had in mind were coming at you. I am writing all this just to take out my frustration and get back to being a normal citizen like every body else. Just kidding, I am trying to find a way to get a grip on my self in which I can actually look back from the future and say, that is the right decision I made in life.
Decisions are a really important part of your life. If you are not allowed to make decisions then you need to do some thinking about it. You know why? Because its your life and no one really gives a rats ass to what you become in your future.
Wow! That was all I had in mind to churn out for now.. 🙂

It was just amazing to spend the Eid days for the first time not sitting home and meeting people whom you have never met for the whole year. Golf was the main focus this time! In full relaxed mode I played golf for 3 days with great people. The weather was amazing, the venue was also one of the best and the company in which I got the chance to play was also phenomenal.
Islamabad Golf Club has 18 holes + I heard that they are making 9 more. With beautiful long fairways and fairly tough roughs, I think one can not get a better challenged course living in Pakistan. I being an 18 handicap, found it pretty good. 🙂
Here are some pictures that I took:

Wow what a nice way of starting a Sunday morning. I picked up my backpack and headed towards DelaWala. It was around 6:00 am as the sun was coming out. I was with 2 friends from our offroadpakistan.com group (Khalid Omar & Mahera Omar). At DelaWala a group know as Critical Mass was gathering to bike all the way to Quaid e Azam Mazar and back. There were approximately 20 bikers including us 3. The ride was approximately 18 km bike ride.
Critical Mass is a cycling movement out there on the streets of Karachi and also around the world. The group sets out at a set location and time, to pedal through set routes. They join together to reclaim public spaces and view the city through new angles. All bikes and bikers are free to join and play an essential part in promoting the nation and saving its environment! 🙂
The rout that we took was:
- 3 Talwar
- Martiot Hotel
- Zainab Market
- Mobile Market
- Capri Cinima
- Quaid e Azam Mazar
- Norani Kabab house
- Shera-e-Faisal Main Road
- FTC building
- then off to home DHA 🙂
The whole ride and experience was great. I think it could be organized better, as for people who are newcomers or those who are not in practice with cycling, are not able to keep up to speeds at which most cyclist were going at. This group is made for a cause, and it should roll as a group in the streets of Karachi, so that people are able to see and recognize that this group is out not for cycling or excersizing, but out for a cause….I think that the organizers should not let any one go ahead of them, so that to keep the group in a formation. 🙂

Great leaders use to be followers once! Great leaders are nurtured by the society they are living in. What differs leaders from followers is their thinking! Their attitude which comes up from their beliefs. And I think beliefs are made by our parents or teachers or friends or any other person we meet during are life time. While we are growing are brains are very much like a soft dry sponge. In the early stages of life we tend to belief in each and every thing we hear or do. With time we realize that which one of our beliefs are wrong and which were right. Now here comes the part which I think is the most interesting one.
You need to be like a lion. Lion Beliefs that all the other animals are his food. Thats why he is the leader of the Animal Kingdom! The lion is not the smartest, nor the largest and not even the heaviest of all the animals in the animal Kingdom. His belief that all other animals are my lunch shapes his attitude. And his attitude then shapes his actions. 🙂
Every Animal in the jungle respects the Lion. The Lion is given respect due to his Attitude. And what shapes his Attitude is his belief.
I think that once we start to check our beliefs and change those beliefs which stop us from moving forward in life, we will be able to become great leaders! Now a days most of the Pakistani people are trying to find a leader, I think they should stop and look at them selfs for a change. I think if we start to belief that we can be leaders then only can Pakistan come back on its own feet.

19-12-10 we got together early in the morning to go for Snorkeling at Churna Island. We were in total 10 friends, some from Iqra Uni, and others from different Universities in Karachi. Our Group is called the Divers Reef. We love to snorkel and explore the beautiful coastal line that Pakistan has. Due to lack in distribution of good knowledge about our country these heavenly places get in the back of the line. And no attention is hence given to them. People go abroad to have relaxation time, leaving all these beautiful places behind. I think that as we should keep on going to these places and then share our experiences on the web with everyone, there might be a chance for these place to flourish as an International Tourist attraction one day.

My day started of at 9am by me sitting on my pc and checking my facebook wall for many birthday wishes that my friends send to me. Then quickly got ready for golf. Had planned to play golf with Husain Mamo and Ali bhie. Went to DHA golf club at 9:50am. Tee off at 10am. Played 9over over all in 9holes. Then at 12:30pm went home for lunch with family. We planned to go to a chines restraunt at Tariq road. Its name is Hongkong Chines restraunt. Had a new dish Kung Pao Chicken with Roasted Peanuts. It was delicious! The hongkong special soup was also really good. From there we got done at 4 and went home. My friend Mohsin Ali Mustafa came home at 5. We went to HotShots near Evolution and my friends shop The Sports. I had capitino coffy and he ordered chocolate milk shake (icecream). Had a good chat after a long time. :-). Went home at 5:50pm. Was late for uni so quickly got my formal shoes on and went to uni. Uni class went ok ok 😉 . Got done from uni at 9 and went home. At home, Maroof came after i reached. Now from here my boombastic night started. We went to pick Khalil. I had ordered cake for the night at creek club bakery. So went there to pick it up. Browni cake. Now on to our journey to Hawksbay. We reached there around 11:30pm. We were the last ones to arrive because i had to pick the cake from creek club. But any way, the party had all just arrived half an hour before us. The hut that was booked is great. It had generator, lights, two bed rooms, two bath rooms, one kitchen, one dining hall and a porch area. Great for a night spend at Hawksbay. We were a total of 22 people. I had not met any of them before, but had heard a lot about them from Maroof. Full party scene guys! I cant think of one second that i had felt bored. We started preparation for volly ball. Hanged lights in the front of our hut. And some of us were busy putting up the volly ball net. While all of this was being done, two
three boys started playing with fire crackers. After many years i saw
someone use fire crackers. It was a fun start. Then after that we had
Chicken Biryani around 12:30pm. Delicious! Then with out wasting a
min, we all started to play volly ball. Well as i said we were 22
people, out of which 18 were playing volly ball. So it was actually a
big fun game. Pulling each others legs, restlling with each other. It
was fun! We got tired, and then turned of the generator and started
the BonFire. We all sat around it, and started laughing on jokes
cracked around by everyone. It was a chilly night, our feet were
getting num because of the cold sand. Khalil started some poetry and
it was halarious. 🙂 We all kept on laughing like drunk people! 😉
Any way, then at around 3:30am we took out the BarBQ equipment. 🙂
Wah gi wah. While the BarBQ was being made, we were baking sweet
potato in the fire. It was yummy. The BarBQ chicken was coming slowly
and slowly, but as it is and will always be, the company was great,
and thats what matters the most. While the BarBQ was being made, we
were baking sweet potatos in the Bon Fire. 🙂 delicious.
