it can be very easy to save money once you know how to and when you have your credit cards safely hidden away. While shopping you should never loose yourself as that can lead to over purchasing.

  1. Ask and you might be given. It won’t always work, but every now and then all you have to do is ask nicely for a discount to get one in Pakistan. As they’re ringing you up, ask if it’s possible to get a discount on your purchase and save money.
  2. Look after of your clothes to save money. Dry-clean when the tag says to dry-clean, hand-wash nice lingerie, and don’t let your floor double as a cabinet. Your favorite items will last a lot longer if you take care of them, and you won’t have to replace them often.
  3. After an item lingers in stores in Pakistan a month or more, retailers start dropping its price to get it out the door, grab the item.
  4. There’s no worse feeling than finding out that your latest overindulgence went on sale days after you bought it. Before you hand over your credit card on a big purchase and to save money, ask if the object of your fashion envy is going on sale soon in Pakistan.
  5. Take advantage of buy-one-get-one-half-off sales and similar discounts — not by buying all that you can, but by clueing in your fashion-forward friends in Pakistan. If you’re both craving a new pair of winter boots, hit the sales together and take advantage of the special deals it will help save money.
  6. Befriend the salesgirl at your favorite shopping hot spots in Pakistan. Make an effort to say hello to her when you’re shopping, ask for her opinion on something you’re trying on, and make sure you jump on her line when she’s at the register. Be a familiar and friendly face, and she might give you a heads-up on sales or ring up a discount code for you.
  7. In Pakistan hit the stores on a weekday to make sure you get a good selection. Thursdays are ideal — you’ll likely be able to take benefit of weekend sales while still having a big selection to choose from. If you go later in the weekend, your favorite stores in Pakistan are more likely to be empty.
  8. In Pakistan get the best deals by stocking up on seasonal clothing right as the season is finishing. Scour sale racks for short sleeves in November and sweaters in April.
  9. In Pakistan we all have that one store that spoils our shopping judgment. Force yourself to stick to your budget and prevent spontaneous shopping sprees.
  10. Thrift shops can be just as pricey as expensive boutiques, if not more so. But your friends’ wardrobe can be free. Manage a clothing swap with your chicest pals in Pakistan. If your clothes and shoes don’t fit swap accessories — new scarves, headbands, bags, and costume jewelry are great ways to refresh your style.

“Friendship is the cooperative and supportive relationship between two or more people. Friendship connotes a relationship which involves mutual knowledge, esteem, affection, and respect along with a degree of rendering service to friends in times of need or crisis,” this is the definition of friendship that I found in the dictionary but I am more than sure that rather than words friendship is more of a feeling.

Friendship is one of the rare miracles of life which everyone gets to experiene once in his lifetime. Friendship is not something to take for granted as it is as precious as pearl and as sweet as love. Actually for me friendship is love at its best if you take the blood relations out of the equation.

Friendship unlike ralations is one thing you get to choose on your own probably which is why it is more near to heart as every man relishes his own achievements anf finds.

Friendships come along so rarely, and I am so thankful to have met my friend that we must move past anything that threatens our friendship and see the big picture. Without our friendships, we are indeed lost.

friendship is a feeling of belonging and nothing can replace it.

We are Pakistanis and this is a fact no man and no land can change. No matter what color we are or how we speak or what we wear and where we live we will always be Pakistanis. But now the question is whether or not we are proud to be a part of Pakistan.

Are we proud to belong to a nation formed by sweat and blood of the freedom fighters? Thanks to those fearless strong headed Pakistanis today we breadth the air of independence and walk the road of evolution.

Pakistan is a land of many miracles and wonders and one should never over look the fact that we are the people of Allah and this land was a gift to us from Him. How we were successful to get Pakistan and how it is still standing with a straight back are things not less than miracles. Many decades have passed but Pakistan managed to stand its ground no matter who ruled it or who bought it! We Pakistanis have a lot to be thankful for and not much to complaint about but sadly Pakistanis do just the opposite.

What really makes a Pakistani? Generations before us and generations after us will probably never know for we have taken Pakistan, the gifted land for granted.

In my opinion on this 14th august we should not pass with some music and good fun but ponder on the question; who a true Pakistani is and try our level best to achieve that goal.
We belong to Pakistan and InshAllah we will prove to be Pakistanis, as well!

Pakistan is the land of many gifts and we as Pakistani should do justice to it.
