Few more Glimpse of Our Summer Vacations 2016

Hello  My  Dear  Precious Friends!!!

Hope  and heartiest pray  that everything  is going fine and smooth in your  Beautiful  lives  ,and  you  are  choosing  the  all colors  very carefully  and  brilliantly  to  make your portrait of  life more  pretty and reasonable .As  i truly  believe  that each  of us is blessed with the unique art to make life  beautiful ,useful ,and  productive .  

If we  keep any doubt about it it is just  the faithlessness  and nothing else  because our creator  is BEST doer of justice and he cannot do injustice to anyone .

All we need  is to ponder upon it .,to step  into our insidious  world and look very carefully  for the skills hidden under the lazy cover of  ignorance .  When  we  find it we have to polish it,  and use it to  make our personality bright ,confident and positive for ourselves  and for  the world around us .

Dear  friends today i am sharing some photos again from our summer vacation trip to my native area near capital city [Islamabad] of our country [Pakistan] .We  went  to Murree a  hill station which remains crowded during the whole year .But this year it was fasting month during vacations when we visited there and to be honest i loved being among less crowed because it is not much extended and main shopping and food street stay packed with visitors  and i  finds even walk among so many people really  bad idea as i am person of solitude or feel nice among less  . We  also visited mall where our eldest son took us to lunch which was nontraditional and quite difficult to swallow for me though kids loved it .


Murree  was founded  as British   sanatorium  in  1851.Town of muree  was built in 1853.
Many  prominent Englishmen were born in this town .After the formation of Pakistan it became a popular  hill station for Islamabad and Rawalpindi inhabitants due to it's natural marvelous views and outstanding weather.[ Image source google] 


Visitors from all over the country including foreigners come here to enjoy and nights are  for walk ,chat and food here instead of sleeping .this is the view of famous shopping and food street called Mall Road  where during night people walk all night  even in Ramadan no body go to it's hotel  room  until the dawn.[image source google] 



We  used to enjoy amazing views  from  chairlifts whenever we visit there but this summer chair lifts were closed for maintenance which is the part of preparation  for biggest  yearly festival  Eid that come at the end of fasting month.[image source google]



We  took long walk from Mall road to Kashmir point and enjoyed the views and weather while chat  and taking snaps ! All roads  had   huge high trees  on both sides and decorations of flowers alongside roads were treat to eyes!



                          Me and my son took many shots of these beautiful flowers .



I  took  this shot from the train station .That trains give visitors a very beautiful round of hills and views through this are captivating! i already share photos of this train in one of my earlier post .



                       Due to much snow fall  in winters  roofs of houses are slope .


    Fog  ruled  there  and environment seemed  so calm and  peaceful  to mind and soul!



             I  took  this  photo from the window of  the  hotel where we stayed,you can see  the hills through the fog so many houses laying randomly in the lap of hills down!



 Here  my  sons  started  the race which won of course the youngest one [who else can dare to make him loose as he is dearest to his bros !



              A  restaurant 's  area  which  was closed  ,a naughty pause for photo !



Here  my  hubby  asked  us to sit and have tea which  we took  along  for ourselves.




                                        We visited to a shopping mall in Islamabad called centaurus .


                                                                             It had  36 floors .


                                                  We had coffee  and kids had pizza here .


                                                                              He loves pizza !



                                                               Kids enjoyed many games too.


After  watching movie our son took us to restaurant where he wanted us to check out his type of food!



                    oops  i don't know what names he told me while reading menu .



                                          I can see rice ,vegies chicken and cheese here .


                                      Cheese is everywhere omg what to do ? but i finished my dish and told my son few days later that cheese was hard to swallow specially melted one and he laughed lot and said mom you should have told me this we could order something else .



Dear  friends hope you enjoyed this visit with us .
We  are  having still  snow in area which is not much far from us and that is  temperature is  still below centigrade .
Hope  you are having  bearable climate in your area ,though we all have to bear the all kinds of moods of nature.
Please take great care ,stay happy and positive for yourself and people around you !
Big Hugs and best wishes for all of you friends!
God Bless You All!

  3. Hello Baili - yes, you're right we do have to bear all kinds of moods of nature! For sure! We have heat here in SE Gippsland, but not as hot as further north.
    I thoroughly enjoyed your post with all those scenic photos. You and and your family looked to be having a lovely holiday. I had a little chuckle at your reaction to not being able to eat melted cheese... one of my favourite snacks is a toasted sandwich with cheese, tomato and onion :D) We are all different though and our cuisine, cultures and tastes differ so much around the world don't they. That's why it's always so interesting to read about them. I must look and see if you have posted about the type of food you prefer as I'm only a new visitor.
    Bye for now :D)

    1. Dear Sue thank so much for such kind and detailed response it is great pleasure for me as you read me with such love and care !!!
      It was my first time but my son got used to it as he is living in big city from almost 7 years and eating out .
      Since childhood I hated milk .mom used to scolef me for this n force me to have a glass every night.
      Cheese is heaviest form of this and I found it hard to eat.
      Yes all parts of lamd even provences of same country differ in food and culture.
      I will definitely share with you my friend all kinds of dishes we eat here and I am working on it.

  5. Baili, you are so right that we each paint our own portrait of life. I love that image.

    1. you got me Christine !
      my reaction to this food was like 'oops!!!???
      but i controlled my emotions as i really wanted to try what my son likes.
      though it was like a kid got a new toy which he does not know how to play with !
      soon i will share our daily traditional meals and you will be able to understand my confusion .

  13. You have captured some lovely photos of your visit and your family.

    I know what you mean about the cheese. I have to confess I end up with dish with cheese like that, I scrape it off and leave it to the side of the plate.

    1. Thank you friend!
      i can understand but i could not scrapped it front of my son though i wanted to do it so much.
      actually we all are bound to our life style ,culture and food we eat since beginning so when we suddenly encounter to something completely unfamiliar we get shock .
      but one reason of such reaction was also my dis likening of milk and all dairy products .

    1. thank you dear friend! here i am too so addicted with taking so so many photos during such journeys and sometime my hubby get upset when they had to stop after moment because of my photography .
      I really love life and everything related to it and always want to capture the beauty of surroundings in my camera .

  16. I love seeing your pictures and hearing the details of your life, baili. Many things are similar to here and many others are very different. Your mall looks just like the malls in our large cities, and the food that is strange to you is "normal" to us. The large trees and baskets of flowers are similar to what you might see here in a forested park on a hill.

    Beautiful altogether!

  17. Wonderful photos I thoroughly enjoyed to see what you see - and your family, so special.

  20. Another lovely post, it's so nice to see photo's of your family.
    The scenery looked lovely too.

    I just can't image a shopping mall with 36 floors, I think the most floors I have seen is about six!

    All the best Jan

  38. I so much enjoyed your post, it looks like you had a lovely time visiting with your son. Wow that street with all the flowers was just beautiful, made for a lovely walk. My husband loves to take pictures of fog, he says there is a mystery about it. I have never heard of a mall with 36 floors, that seems like it would be overwhelming, but I can imagine the boys really enjoyed all the fun.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  39. Good morning, beautiful photos! I appreciate your kind comment at my blog. Your trip sounds as thought everyone had a very enjoyable time. Sometime I don't like cheese because it is hard to swallow when it is melted. some cheese becomes so stringy too. But on a positive note your food looked very delicious. It appears that you are surrounded by many beautiful loved ones as well. Have a wonderful weekend. The days move quickly.

  47. i enjoyed seeing your family photos (and you) and reading about your vacation. i love cheese, but you have to develop a technique for swallowing it once it has melted!!

    i can't even imagine a mall with 36 floors, wow, it would take several days i would imagine to visit all those stores. beautiful outdoor scenery and flowers!!

    i enjoyed reading your opening paragraph, it inspired me!!!

  52. I am enjoying the photos of your summer vacation with your handsome husband and son, Baili. Rawalpindi stayed in my mind after reading "The Jewel in the Crown" by Paul Scott, and it's wonderful to see photos of the storied Hill Country. I would be overwhelmed by a shopping mall with 36 stories. That photo made me dizzy! You're so right! We have to nurture our best selves and make the most of the amazing gift of life from our Creator. Have a lovely weekend, my special friend! Sending you love and hugs!
