Wordless Wednesday

As I am almost over the jet lag after being back from hols in Lahore…

…and Karachi…

and London…

I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and a Happy New Decade.



  1. Happy New Year to you, too!

    Lovely photos.

  2. I love these pictures, especially the last one!

  3. Ah yes, the snow which trapped me in my house for two days and left me suffering from serious cabin fever!

    Hope you had a fantastic holiday.


  4. Hi Shayma,

  8. @Bria Happy New Year, dear.

    @Hande Tatler is required reading :)

    @Atif Those of us from the other side of the pond (to your West, not East), actually loved it in London; it was just a light sprinkling of snow ;)

    @Luiz Thanks for passing by and the lovely words.

    @Mothership Have missed you, too. My next post will be the meme you tagged me for. Next, Mrs T’s meme I was tagged for. Lots of fun to be had early this year. x

    @Juliannah Thank you for passing by and best wishes for your daughter’s upcoming nuptials.

    @Sukhmindar They are glass bangles with adornments. Sadly, I did not go to Anarkali, it is not safe to go to the bazaar these days. I took this photo in Liberty Market, near my home in Gulberg.
