Pakistan Expo (PEXPO) 2016


Heaven knows I have always admired the very lovely colonial style mansion that was the Pakistan High Commission, situated just right next to the Renaissance Hotel and right opposite the MaTiC.

So when I was invited to attend a Press Conference there yesterday, I was thrilled ...  but of course, since it was inside the Pakistan High Commission, there are definitely protocols and also the need to be able to carry yourself properly, but all is good. I am not about to behave like a wild monkey , despite it being the year of the Fire Monkey right... LOL


Recycled paper bags from newspapers... aren't the prints just gorgeous...

Pakistan is a land that fascinates me... and it fascinated me even further after I watched the movie called Baijrangi Baijaan a movie that was shot in both India and Pakistan... and how scenery there really rivaled those in Switzerland...

It is true Pakistan is blessed with breathtaking landscapes and mind-blowing sceneries, and well, there are a lot of very good looking people there too....

    1. I agree with you, to be honest, it was exactly my opinion of Pakistan, but like HE the High Commissioner said, we all have a wrong impression of Pakistan and it is in fact a very beautiful country....
