Thank God, Ramzan has started, not only does this Holy month bring about blessings but it also gives us a break from the crazy (pre-Ramzan) shopping and chaos on roads, talking of which, last Tuesday was a massive disaster on roads, thanks to the nonsensical water tanker strike. It's sad knowing that water being scarce is still capitalised by this mafia. An article in the Express Tribune has speculated that Pakistan would run dry by 2025. And thanks to the Eucalyptus trees planted all over the city, this might happen soon, given such trees not at all suited for our environment and them making the ground dry the effects of which would for a decade even after these are uprooted.

When some negativity seems to prevail, it's good to be pleasantly surprised with a present. So look what Coca-Cola sent us! The new Fanta flavours along with the coll summer sunglasses. My nephew was really excited about these and posed with an attitude.

My personal favourite was Fanta Apple, I liked the tangy flavour that sparks the sense of taste the moment you take a sip. So it's a mist try, although Fanta Grape I believe would cater to a niche, however, all flavours are good, it's all a matter of personal preference.

After far as last week's musing go, there was a lot happening around. For instance, the Pantene Masterclass Event in which Nina Lotia and Ayesha Omer explained how the newly launched formula can do wonders to one's hair. It consists of Pro-V and Histidine meant for hair nourishment. According to the brand's claim, the new Pantene shampoo and conditioner penetrate deep inside the hair shaft, up to the cellular level, cleansing all the damaging impurities. Specially developed to address the needs to working women and those on the go, both shampoo and conditioner are said to eradicate the damage of up to 100 blow drys and stand upto 450 degrees Fahrenheit degree heat. Well this is definitely in my to-get list when I go for grocery shopping.
It was good to see Ayesha Omer, the Bulbulay star in reality, this full of life sitcoms is definitely worth watching as it gives a break from one's daily routine while the light humour wards off all the days worries.

In order to demonstrate the blow dry and post shampoo effect, the highly experienced salon girls blow dried Amnah Ayaz Khan's (who also happens to be a blogger) hair leaving it in immaculate bouncy curls. She had used Pantene products prior to this.

Now say hello to my new friend, the Cactus plant that I got on my way back from Lalazay Nursey, Clifton. 

This one cost me Rs. 450 and according to the claims of the nursery owner, it was from Holland. For some odd reason, ever since I got it, I have a strong feeling that I am going to make someone sit on it!
This thorny plant also seems to be a good defense tool for public places, especially public buses. But on a serious note, it's a great friend and a good colleague for your office desk. According to Green Moxie, cacti plants capture any negative energy that comes from the computer screen. And they are not very demanding plants either and do not require much watering, this one especially would need to be watered just once a week and that's it. However, cacti plants do require good light for approximately 8 hours a day, Aloe Vera for instance also needs light but should never be kept under direct sunlight as it would damage it, rendering it brown, affecting its turgidity. 

Till the next episode, it's goodbye from me! Good day! :)
