rush

WOW-its done. The launch went really well. The evening was so different, that at one point i actually felt i was the odd one out, a desi caught in the middle of all those europeans. I didnt know we had so many of them-but each very sweet and very friendly. It was refreshingly interesting. I met one absolutely gorgeous britisher from islamabad-he was incredibly cute. Met the italian consul general and his wife who was a sweetheart.

It was such an unreal feeling being in karachi, with something so major happening, and i was there but my friends werent. It was a little incomplete not seeing those familiar faces when i turned around-a few reassuring looks, a few recognizable expressions of support. I missed them all.

On the bright side, we have a new place to frequent and call our own and tomorrow when we go out for coffee, we can actually say, hey where should we go, espresso or costa?

cheries in a bowl

a discussion started today at work between my partner (business) and i-she asked me why i never write anything related to our work on my blog. That got me thinking-would i be perfectly happy making post2am too work work? We came to the conclusion that some of the events of each day at the cherry bowl are too entertaining/dramatic to not have a blog-result?

Should be a fun, juicy ride 🙂
