Well, I had an appointment in an Embassy in Diplomatic Enclave, when I was done, headed to serene Serena Hotel, when I entered the hotel I saw scores of bearded afghan men with exotic turbans. When I entered the lobby I found there was mini jirga being held, headed by Abdullah Abdullah “Afghan Foreign Minister”. When I saw all these guys, horror stories of Marriott Islamabad came in my mind, thought; it would be right place for bombers to explode.
Well, I got out of the lobby and sat on green open top coffee shop, enjoyed my delicious Double CHEST Margalla Burger, got pleasure from the scenic beauty of green mountains and loved the fresh air and sun.
After a while my LUMS fellow who is also a NAVAL PILOT joined me at Serena, we headed for ice-cream, he introduced me to one of the sexiest place in Islamabad, it is called The HOT SPOT, located in sector F-7. Parlor is surrounded by lush green trees, wooden bamboo entrance welcome you along with cool breeze. It is in a compact place as if one is in an empty BUS body, decorated with loads of painting and pictures; it also gave a look of an old American suburban PUB.
Then we headed to Saidpur model village, it is not very far away from the Constitutional Avenue as well as diplomatic enclave. Place gives a village look, just across modern Islamabad; it is simply a modern village just in the arms of green Margalla Hills.
My friend, shared an interesting story about all those big fat mullahs, they have got the most expensive fleet of vehicles. Imagine Fazal Rehman, with loads of beards and big fat tummy living a PLAYBOY life in ISLOO, cheer for Paki politics. Mullah’s historical lust for power, money & “guys ;-)” doesn’t end.
Let’s see what comes ahead in fearful Isloo; will political climate remain hazy or clear sky stay longer? Time will tell, but I foresee, dusty weather with black clouds may contain a strong gale force, powerful enough to shatter the status quo “wishful thoughts ;-) maybe”
