Buying online as I’ve mentioned many times earlier, doesn’t only save your money but also helps to not to get irritated from going out in a rushy market. Most of the times, I explore what’s available on internet and how can one get them all at low cost, so today’s finding is vacuum cleaners. It’s good to have them, but more than good if you find a variety of colors and styles, i.e. upright, cylinder, and handheld etc, like available at dyson.co.uk. Not only vacuum cleaners, but vacuum cleaner parts can also be bought in this way, i.e. you don’t need a cleaner, just to make your old one working!
Seeing such comfortable shopping ideas, sometimes I wish we could have such facilities here as well. Though some people are trying to build strong bases for online markets here as well, but it’ll take time to build trust here. Besides that European online market has grown up to a greater extent, and there’s no difference between online and offline shopping from products’ quality point of view and it’s mainly because of the sellers like above, who build a strong customer relationship.
Well, let’s see when will we have all this?

This post of mine has nothing to do with business, education or any other thing. It’s just my personal concern that I want to go under off topic. Probably it’s not that personal as it’s the case with many people who spend much of there time online. Online nature of work and my academic requirements have made me internet addicted. According to some rough stats I spend 13 to 15 hours a day on internet.
I think I can browse internet and spend my time here up to three continuous days even without food, J. One of the reasons for so can be the availability of each and everything here, i.e. even printer ink can be found online. Well, this is not only my case, but many of my friends who use to remain online for 24/7. Once a member at grand CSS Forum has also commented for me that he wonders how do I M Possible, Muskan and me manage being available there for 24/7. Though some of my responsibilities have been shifted and m’ not that much active there now a days, but soon I’ll be back there. I’m really missing the hot discussions there.
This entire scenario attracts me a lot, and I really enjoy both my work and studies. I wonder, I won’t have been able to manage all this if it all would have been offline. And being internet geek, I expect some online food system soon. Let’s see if we can have such!

I didn’t write anything on blog for days, a bit or too tired, but don’t know why, whenever I see this blog of mine, I want to share anything I’ve in mind at that particular moment. Today unfortunately I don’t have anything to share, but an off topic concern.
Lately I wrote an article on Interior decoration, though not my field but was an exciting experience, as it was much related to child psychology. It was about the relationship of physical environment children live in and their growth. While browsing the web, I’ve come across some really new concepts. I was though aware of child psychology to some extent but didn’t know how a child perceives and care for his bedroom and other places he frequently visits.
That was a long debate on Educational and child psychology, but the research on web had a very good experience when I found really some good stuff related to crib bedding . Literally, I wished I could go back to that age once again, but just on reminder that I’ll have to struggle for all those degrees and stuff again the thought was aborted!

Travel and tourism not only a growing industry to have an economic look at, but also a best thing to consider when the workloads and professional duties have squeezed all your energies. This is the best time to search for some place to have outing, and according to experts it’s crucial to leave your dwelling for at least two days in a year, and should go out of city even. This is what a general overview about travel, but specifically there are many things associated with travels, like travel insurance over 70, tourism management, and even the whole hospitality industry is a matter of great concern, from finding employment opportunities to having your own business in it.
Well, today, I won’t talk more about the hospitality industry and the economy, instead just to draw readers attention towards some beautiful and worth visiting places in Pakistan. Almost the whole of north is blessed with remarkable heart touching places exhibiting natural beauty. I myself belong to Rawalakot, Azad Kashmir, and have seen a major part of it. Placing a snapshot here.
Besides Azad Kashmir, I’ve been to Ayubia some 10 or so years back! Lovely schooling those days!
Some places, I’ve not been to, but wish to be there at least once are Kaghan and Chitral
Though north has much in it, but south is not far behind, especially the beach. How can I forgot my Karachi!

Some two weeks back I happened to be there on a tour to northern areas. After a long long time of stress and continuous work, it was a great pleasure to have an outing like this. Though the tour was a short one consisted of two days only, but the amount of enjoyment I had was countless. I wish that time could last forever, but nothing can be done now. It was none too difficult if I would have been aware of the benefits of camcorders by that time and would have one in my hands.
The portable device with superb functions though doesn’t take you physically to the memorable past, but lets you in there mentally. Now I’m back to work and recall my memories to get relaxed, but I’d have enjoyed much if I’d have been able to display the events again and again to get refreshed. By next time I hope to have a camcorder with me, so will I recommend my readers to have such.
Past events though do not make progress in your life, but memorable moments reenergize you if they are repeated frequently. Making life happy is all in your hand, just make it the way you want.

The dilemma most of the writers face is that sometimes they don’t have anything to write on. Being a writer, I also happen to suffer from this situation. Many people find different ways out of it, but for me the only thing at this moment I need is to get relaxed in order to reenergize my thoughts and potentials. And you cannot get relaxed if you’re hungry, so the first thing to do is to find something to eat. Let’s start with my favorite foods, i.e. pasta, macaroni, pizza, biryani and much more. Some of them take parallel time to get cooked, but if you keep some pasta and spaghetti recipes at your desk, that’s more than wonderful.
Keeping recipes lets you make your favorite food ready within a short span of time. You’re half relaxed after having a delicious food of your choice. Now comes the time to get relaxed fully. You can have a little walk; can listen to your favorite music or whatever makes you feel refreshed.
Having a little break oils the stuck ideas and makes you more competent than before. Don’t let yourself crushed under the loads of professional duties, give a little time to yourself, and make life easy by keeping the instant solutions at your desk.

The digital world has digitized everything from heavy duty machineries to small objects of day to day life. Whether it’s some past era or some time in the present, people always love to keep some memorable moments with them in one way or other. Invention of digital cameras has made this very convenient to save such moments, but retrieving the same has been an issue, i.e. getting the photos printed or the processing cost. But with the emergence of digital photo frame, this has been no more an issue.
A Sample Digital Photo Frame from digitalframez.com
This works in very friendly manner. You just need to take a photo, and switch the memory card in your digital photo frame, it will start working and will continuously display your happy moments wherever you place the photoframe, i.e. wall, entrance, side table in the bedroom etc. it’s not something complex to operate, just works simply. Having digital photo frame is really a good way to keep you smiling every time it gets a hit of your sight on it.
