Green Eyed Twins

The normal eye color in Pakistan is black or very dark brown. Some has light brown and even fewer would have real light color. I have never seen blue eyes here. However, rarely I do see green eyes. A family member is lucky enough to have not one but two kids (twins) with beautiful green eyes. Here are few shots.

With their proud mother:

Jalebi

We have a saying which describes someone as straight (in social dealings with fellow human beings) as Jalebi. Jalebi is the name of a popular sweet in Pakistan as well as in several other countries.

A paste of wheat flour batter in squeezed out of a cotton bag in circular shape and deep fried in oil:

It is fried until it becomes crunchy:

It is then taken out and soaked sugar syrup. Sorry, no photo.

It is served hot and is quite popular.

Enjoy.

Cat’s Eye View

When in doubt and out of material, do cat. Our cat has become big, furry and lazy.

And Cat’s Eye View. It was like it is saying, ‘Don’t Disturb Me’.

A Barbeque Evening

Recently, during a wedding, the greater family got together and enjoyed a barbeque. We arraanged right on the street as it is a dead end street.
