A bit of a rollercoaster week, this one. Started off terribly but ended alright. The weather is getting worse day by day – summer has officially begun its awful tirade. I wonder what it’d be like living in a place with neutral weather – where it’s not boiling hot to the point of exhaustion, and not so cold and snowy that it makes you feel like you have frostbite. I’d love to know which country is something of an inbetween. Spring & Autumn are non-existent in Dubai, so that’d be an awesome experience.
What I’m Reading
Guilty Pleasures by Tasmina Perry. Not the kind of book I’d usually reach out for but the plot is an engaging one thus far. There’s a lot of drama involved tbh and its a big book (who else gets happy knowing there are so many more pages to get lost in?) There are many sub plots but they don’t take over the actual story so there is quite a finesse in how the author has written it. Learning quite a bit about the high profile fashion & publishing industry with this one.
What I’m Watching –
- Youtube: This week I was basically obsessed with Adam Saleh. His vlogs always put me in a good mood. (which tells you what a downer this week was, pft).
- Pakistani TV shows: Missed Mann Mayal this week & coincidentally came across an article dissing the show for being one of the stupidest in history. LOL. I’ve also been watching Pakeeza, which is slow-moving and predictable. I’ve never seen Aamina Sheikh in any other role apart from a damsel in distress. Reruns of Humsafar are going good (I love Mahira Khan. Fawad Khan is great, albeit a bit overrated).
Feel-Good Moments –
There was an important event in Islamic history that occurred this week (Shab-E-Mairaaj, I don’t know what its called in English), and so there’s an influx of desserts at home. I was unable to take a picture of the actual things, but here’s a random picture of the garnishing for the heck of it.

Hope you’ll have a great weekend. (Especially if you’re in Dubai, a 3-day weekend & 2-day free parking? It’s like Eid came early).
