Just another honor killing

It's through my Facebook news feed that I realized that Qandeel Baloch was mudered by her brother. The entire nation is grieving over the death of Qandeel Baloch, quite evident through their numerous status updates and Facebook posts. So who is Qandeel Baloch anyway? The word is "social media celebrity". Whatever that means. In my … Continue reading Just another honor killing

Congratulation, Taliban!

This post is written not to mourn the children who have been killed in the Peshawar attacks. It is to congratulate the Taliban. It was only when I was purchasing some mints from the departmental store at the hotel that I heard about the Peshawar attacks. Apparently, a couple of self-proclaimed self righteous suicide bomber … Continue reading Congratulation, Taliban!

I Deserve To Be Murdered Because I Dress Nice

Ignore the awkwardness of my right hand, and give it to me straight. Honestly, am I bearing too much skin? Do I look like a attention seeking whore? Do I look trashy? Apparently so. Since I work mostly evening shifts, I can only go to such shenanigans before three in the afternoon. AFK is nearer … Continue reading I Deserve To Be Murdered Because I Dress Nice

Karachi Cultural Festival at AFK

I had an amazing week. No, really, I did. I went to a cultural festival that was not too crowded and surprisingly, fun. L'hotel has been busy as fuck, crawling with foreigners from all over the world to see an exhibition of arms, ammunition and weapons, paying for ridiculously priced hotel rooms. Even the stupid event … Continue reading Karachi Cultural Festival at AFK

I am a fan of grown men in fur coats

As I was writing my Blog Tember Challenge talking about Westlife I had two flashbacks. One was of me, sitting in a room at the house in Lahore I grew up in, lying on the bed with the room locked, music on full volume. The other was an image of the girl who tortured me … Continue reading I am a fan of grown men in fur coats

And also, what if people are just pouring warm water over there heads?

This is going to be a very quick, apology post. Sort of. This post is triggered by a comment from a Hugxheart, who I admire for speaking out to something she thought is wrong. Check out her blog, she seems like and is a very sweet person and I'm sure she meant well when she … Continue reading And also, what if people are just pouring warm water over there heads?

Just because everyone’s doing it on Facebook

My news feed is filled with Gaza related statuses and most of my native buddies have replaced their pouty-faced profile pictures with others that show support for Gaza. These trends, these freaking trends. They always start as being okay at first, but sooner or later turn into leeches that suck my blood whenever I see them.This is definitely the sooner case. Since it is … Continue reading Just because everyone’s doing it on Facebook

Save my country, please!

I am not patriotic. I never support the Pakistani national team, whether it's cricket or hockey. I think going to heavily booked cafés when they show cricket matches on big screens between the two rival teams, Pakistan and India is a waste of time. I don't wear a mini clip of Pakistan's flag with my … Continue reading Save my country, please!
