Atlanta has a different charm..the greenery, everything is so beautiful. 🙂 There was lots to see in Atlanta too, the aquarium, CNN headquarters, Stone Mountain, Smokey Mountain, and we went crazy shopping at the TANGER outlets! 😉  my brother took us to his college, Georgia Tech University… I was amazed with the campus..and seeing the different sorority and fraternity houses..frankly speaking i thought all that just existed in movies.., now i knw they are real too :-O

DHOLKI & FAREWELL!!

This post is about the two parties i attended in the last two weeks!! i had gone for a friend’s Dholki party!

Last to last Friday, i had gone for one of my Pakistani friend’s Dholki. A dholki is a party – one of the wedding functions in a Pakistani wedding. A party where there is a dhol (see above picture – it is a double sided drum, which can be played with sticks or just your hands but sometimes people use spoons too, lol  ) and a lot of singing while someone plays the dhol, dancing & ofcourse awesome tasty food 🙂 And its mostly a ladies function, where women apply mehndi too along with all that. We all girls sang different popular indian, pakistani songs. and none of us were awesome at playing the dhol, except for the bride, so she was playing the dhol in her own function, lol 😉 it was fun!! I’m not that great at dancing, i go on the dance floor, and i’l be like ok what am i suppose to do now? but group dancing is always fun!! and i didn’t manage to make a fool of myself 🙂

Last week i also went for my college farewell party. It was awesome fun and emotional a bit, but none of us really cried!!! I guess we all are too tensed about the upcoming Major exams!! most prolly the crying farewell will happen once the exams are done in March!! Our juniors did  an amazing job in organizing it!! Below are two photos, just random pictures of my nails and bangles i wore for it.

Total Randomness!! i edited them a bit, and i felt like uploading it, so i did! – xoxo

Global Village – Saw the world in 4 hours ;-)

Last night, we took my cousin to Global Village. It is this major tourist attraction place, where different countries ( China, Greece, India, Yemen, Austria, Phillipines, Morocco, Spain, Pakistan, Qatar, Kuwait, Thailand, KSA, Africa, Vietnam, UAE, Eastern Europe, Turkey, Jordan, and many more)  from all over the world have set up their pavilions and they sell and display the stuff for which their country is most famous for. It is really an amazing place to visit. You learn a lot about different people, their culture, clothes, food and their styles.

My cousin and I freaked out on the food!!!!

We had Baraf Golas there from the Pakistan pavillion!Baraf golas are basically crushed ice balls, soaked in different syrups. Syrups with a variety of colours and flavours sprinkled all over it! It is appealing and mouth watering to all age groups!

Image

We had asked the Pakistani bhaiyya to put rose and lemon syrup on the ice! it was simply delicious!!

We also bought waffles, they were called ‘Holland waffles’ and we asked the cute Dutch guy with amazing grey eyes (Seriously, we both were in love with him 😛 ) to put maple syrup, chocolate syrup and whipped cream.

Image

The waffles were heaven!!

Apart from these two, we also ate caramel popcorn, Kulfi icecream, potato sticks, tasted different types of honey from the Yemen pavilion and ate yummy Shawarma’s for dinner. And we broke records by seeing the whole world in 4 hours 😉 lol

We also saw this lady who was making beautiful rugs, with her two hands on a hand-loom. She even showed us how to do it. It was amazing to see how fast she was making it. Normal people like us would take months or years to make this!!

In the second photo, she was showing me how to make the knots, thats why  the 4 hands!! 😉
