Relief… at last

I feel so relieved to read this. I can’t wait for the day when I will be able to drive through SF without any distractions like this. This is one of the few decisions made by the local government that I actually appreciate.

    Come on Umar – we need these hot looking billboards to keep us entertained on the daily traffic jams going to work :)

    Honestly if it werent for the billboard market these good looking girls will be out of a job :)

    “hot looking billboards”. Lolzz. Comletely agree with that. Ab kia hum un saray huey traffic valoon ki shaklain daikh ker time pass karaingay ?

    I think ye unhoon ne es liye kia hai ki jab VVIP’s vahan se guzrain toh security or traffic waloon ka dhiyaan kaheen or nahi ho.Lolzz

    Anyways, good work Mustafa Kamal.

    It is believed that SF is under constant vigilence through hidden security cameras. Obviously these billboards would be an obstacle to them.

    Now being serious

    I read this in the morning and thought to start on it but I had something pending. Anyways, good work umar. At last, some praise for officials. Verna ye zaleel hee hotay hain har bar.

    Yes very right. Without these boards SF will be as beautiful as we would like to see it be. Well done everyone in that decision

    ” Yeah she is hot, and the picture is taken nicely as well. but did u notice how her cheeks were burning in this particular location. It was probably because the PRINTERS decided to increase the contrast too much.”

  9. MB (unregistered) on May 4th, 2006 @ 6:05 pm

  10. Abdul Sami (unregistered) on May 4th, 2006 @ 6:13 pm

    what balance ?

  11. Poo Poo Head (unregistered) on May 4th, 2006 @ 6:27 pm

    See your words please . I hate using word “hot” or such words for women. Show respect please …. This is not a closed room where guys could talk what ever they want …. I am sure no gal wants to be called “hot” in her senses. You people could get disturbed by this simple bill boards :-(

  12. turab (unregistered) on May 4th, 2006 @ 8:40 pm

    I hate to show support for the bill boards,
    Don’t over kill them but its nice to have some to give a cosmoplotian look to a metropolitan city!

    papeetay,umar ko kitna paisa khilakar ban hatwaya?,and i see you are preaching here.

  15. Zain (unregistered) on May 4th, 2006 @ 9:49 pm

    WHATEVER…… Remove all the billboards from the city but please let Neha’s Walls one come back!! She was lookin HOT man….

    @POO POO HEAD, not-so-hot girls would indeed argue but hot ones wouldn’t mind the word!

  16. al khan (unregistered) on May 5th, 2006 @ 12:03 am

    How do we expect business to flourish in a modern cosmopolitan city like karachi – if you take away advertising and marketing? – What multinational will want to invest in pak/khi if there is a ban on billboards? – How stupid!

  17. al khan (unregistered) on May 5th, 2006 @ 12:06 am

    Also…….If people are so distracted by a girl on a billboard that they are causing accidents, not only is that rather pathetic, but they must lead very mundane lives! – get a grip!

    Although I agree that there was a clutter on sharah-e-faisal (i was there three years ago and i am just thinking what it would have been like now) however, there two signs on the road that added some colour to rows of concrete that embound the arterr. One, and possibly the best billboard I had seen in Pakistan, was the Coca Cola billboard on metropole – it was very classy and looked awesome at night.

    The other one was near the nursery area I think it was one of the apartment buildings before nursery that had a picture of a dude climbing a rock. The, i think, was either for Morven Gold or Capstan but it looked totaly awesome when heading towards gora qabirstan on a late night.

    I hope they do something to liven the road up a bit – a proper green belt or something that beautifies the main artery.

    Man i was think about the same Coca Cola billboard. I saw it around 2 years ago. Man it was huge and classy and looked wonderful at night.
    I think it would be better if there is a restricted number of billboards on shar-e-faisal.
    That would bring out the best and the most creative advertisment out on that street. A couple of billboards,the best ones, would actually add to the beauty of the city.

  20. Aly (unregistered) on May 5th, 2006 @ 2:55 am

    I don’t know about this. We just got a billboard on SF in January legally and paid a premium, and now this? I think it would be better to set a 1 year mark, and keep it limited and organized, rather than abolishing it completely.

  21. wasiq (unregistered) on May 5th, 2006 @ 3:36 am

    hum pey ilzaam toh waisey bhi hai …aisey bhi sahi!

    Yeah i remember the JAZZ girl(Zara Shaikh)’s big billboard on SFF opposite to FTC.

  24. MB (unregistered) on May 5th, 2006 @ 11:00 am

    @SAMI : Balance meant handling the hottness & the car at same time…Lolz

  25. turab (unregistered) on May 5th, 2006 @ 1:08 pm

    i guess i m not the only one showing support.

    my point is not to over kill it!

  26. Abdul Sami (unregistered) on May 6th, 2006 @ 12:06 am

    If women don’t mind exposing or skin show, they _must_ not mind being called hot

  27. MB (unregistered) on May 6th, 2006 @ 2:22 pm

    aray wah wah wah..kamal kerdia yaar aap ne
    es ko toh quote hona chaiye :
    ” If women don’t mind exposing or skin show, they _must_ not mind being called hot “

    All the females in these ads were neither forced or abducted nor bribed to act like that so what’s wrong in saying they are hot when do act like that or whatever.

    Stanzas For Music, There’s Not a Joy the World Can Give

    There’s not a joy the world can give like that it takes away
    When the glow of early thought declines in feeling’s dull decay;
    ‘Tis not on youth’s smooth cheek the blush alone, which fades so fast,
    But the tender bloom of heart is gone, ere youth itself be past.

    Then the few whose spirits float above the wreck of happiness
    Are driven o’er the shoals of guilt, or ocean of excess:
    The magnet of their course is gone, or only points in vain
    The shore to which their shivered sail shall never stretch again.

    Then the mortal coldness of the soul like death itself comes down;
    It cannot feel for others’ woes, it dare not dream its own;
    That heavy chill has frozen o’er the fountain of our tears,
    And though the eye may sparkle still, ’tis where the ice appears.

    Though wit may flash from fluent lips, and mirth distract the breast,
    Through midnight hours that yield no more their former hope of rest,
    ‘Tis but as ivy-leaves around the ruined turret wreath –
    All green and wildly fresh without, but worn and grey beneath.

    Oh, could I feel as I have felt, or be what I have been,
    Or weep as I could once have wept, o’er many a vanished scene;
    As springs in deserts found seem sweet, all brackish though they be,
    So, midst the withered waste of life, those tears would flow to me.

    Lord George Gordon Byron
