Eid Saga

This Eid was really joyous for me. I stayed at home on first day of Eid meeting the coming relatives and friends. Second day of Eid I went to see my friends Zahid and Imtiaz. We then went to Pizza Hut for dinner and really enjoyed it. Third day of Eid was also great. I met many of my relatives and friends. Yestrday I recieved my Bank Alfalah Credit Card. I am also a Citibank Credit Card holder but somewhat dissatisfied with their service. So I plan to stop using CitiCard in favor of Alfalah Credit Card. My office will be on from Monday, i.e., tomorrow. Now I am going to have breakfast. In an hour or so I'll be leaving for Waqas's (my friend) house. Cheers.

Iftar @ Pizza Hut and Holidays on Eid-ul-Fitar

Holdays for Eid-ul-Fitar have been announced by the govt. of Pakistan from Monday 23 Oct. to Wednesday 25 Oct. Since Saturday and Sunday is my official off, the vacation is going to be five days for me! Kool. I plan to utilize this time by studying, playing around, visiting my relatives, and having fun with friends and family. I also have plan to write on at least one technical (.NET-related) issue for this blog. So stay tuned! Yesterday I was out with coleagues to have Iftaar at Pizza Hut. In Ramadan they are offering an "All You Can Eat for just 299+ST" deal as does KFC. I've noted that quality of pizzaz was not as good as it is in normal days. Anyways if you're a big eater, I'd suggest you go have this deal at Iftar. By the way, this deal is available for Sehri as well. Cheers.

Blogspot is Back!

So blogspot is back! You might be wondering when did it go off anyway. The thing is blogspot was one of the sites banned in Pakistan for at least three+ months. That's one reason that I was not writing any posts. But since it's available once again in Pakistan, I plan to be writing regularly. So stay tuned! Cheers.
