Light up


Habib Bank Plaza on eve of 14 August
Originally uploaded by Babar Haroon Manghi.

Although the Habib Bank building has been posted quite many times before. Both by me and illusionFS, this photo i believe does justice to the effect they were trying to create.

A array of multicolor lights on the top, with a green and white sidebar, was the perfect salutation to our independence day.

I see this building on my way back home, and the actual effect it creates with the lights is BREATHTAKING.

    Nice photo, but what’s with all the kitten photos on the Karachi Flickr Group sidebar? :/

    I am lost. I dont find this pic attractive at all. I know I have “serious” issues but these days I can’t seem to appreciate any thing. There were 4 adjectives in above 4 comments “nice , great , cute and good” so there must be a some problem with me. Am I alone or are there many more who think what a stupid pic and post. I am serioulsy asking you my old friends.

    pph susrprisingly I am with u on this. i dont like this pic either. :S


  7. mansoor (unregistered) on August 29th, 2006 @ 12:06 pm

    PPH: cute was an adjective reffering to the kitten on the sidebar, and not the pic.

    Thanks for posting this picture.FYI Mansoor I found about this from your artile way back in July 2006.(http://karachi.metblogs.com/archives/2006/07/a_splash_of_col.phtml).
    This project was done by Philips Pakistan and it also involved two chinese engineers.It was the center of attraction on the eve of 14th August.

    pph susrprisingly I am with u…

    Why surprisingly?I don’t understand why this pph guy is treated as an ‘alien’ on this forum?Is this becuase he opposes bunch of retards(readers/authors) here and comesup with his own theories?

    This is not a healthy sign at all.

    babar: ur welcome. and i did not know that :)

    adnan: trust you to always put up an instigating comment :p we’re not ‘against’ him per se. we just dont see eye to eye with him.. thats all


  11. Adnan (unregistered) on August 29th, 2006 @ 4:09 pm


    we’re not ‘against’ him per se

    Yeah right

    Xill-e-Ilahi to PPH:


    @ poo poo head: frankly, your comments don’t merit a response . if you would care to go through all of your own comments on kmb, you’d see that you’re the one with the issues and it seems to me at least that you have issues with each and every thing that any author over here has to say.

    maybe you’re the one who needs to start acting like an adult.

    Then that Xill Elahi advises:

    grow up kid.

    while he acts like one by saying:


    @ poo poo head: since you insist on being an immature retard, go through the this carefully

    See I had reasons that i used the word “retard” in earlier post.
    You can make infinite tries to refute but I and many other regular readers do notice attitude against him or likewise and me and many others *DO* prefer and like to read PPH comments than authors of this metroblog.

    You might declare me part of his cabal(which isn’t true) but I don’t mind.atleast I am not on other side.


    trust you to always put up an instigating comment

    yes but i still notice dead brains aruond me =)

    adnan: what can i say… :)


  13. Adnan (unregistered) on August 29th, 2006 @ 5:55 pm


    what can i say

    Say Cheeeeeese!!


  14. IllusionFS (unregistered) on August 29th, 2006 @ 8:18 pm

    Adnan: Thats because he is usually biased and he only posts on KMB to criticize. I dont think anyone cares about what he says anymore..


  15. Poo Poo Head (unregistered) on August 29th, 2006 @ 8:19 pm

    Adnan Thanks for your support but I guess I could take this “battle” at my own :-). Let them think what ever they think as long as they do not ban me again.


  16. Original-Anon (unregistered) on August 29th, 2006 @ 8:32 pm

    Well, if nobody cares about Poo’s comments anymore then why do people respond and so belligerently at that?


  17. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on August 29th, 2006 @ 10:30 pm

    @Illusion:You are very wrong my innocent friend.First of all I dont think

    he’s biased.How do you define biasness?for me baisness is to blame Mullahs

    for every evils in our society by bunch of liberal morons here who hide their

    own filths by blaming others.Read ‘The Moth Smoke’ of Mohsin Hameed.Offcourse

    people of same class/group then come out on different channels/forums as

    ‘saint’ and talk crap about molvis,politicians etc.

    Crticism is not a bad thing.If you dont criticise and accept others criticism

    then how can you claim that you are willing to be a part of a civilized

    society?


    I dont think anyone cares about what he says anymore

    thats not true my aziz!hardly 6-10 people are actually regular here to make

    comments.It doesnt mean this site is visited by only 10 people per day.You

    know this site stats much better than me.I know that i get alteast 4/5 hits

    by this forum each day and most of them are unique.In short there are several

    silent readers and i knew atleast 4-5 readers of this metroblog who likes and

    enjoy poo’s comments.If they are silent doesnt mean they are dead.Last time I

    heard that Dr also enjoys his ‘argument’.

    @Poo:most welcome dude but let me clear that I was not supporting ‘you’.I

    found something wrong so i shared with all.Nothing to do with your

    personality.You know very well that in ancient times I used to get pissed at

    your useless arguments with me.Neither I was wrong at that time nor I think I

    have changed my track now.Sorry for being rude but I’m like that.

    Adnan: I am sorry. I take my words back. I didnt know you took PPH so personally. I dont dislike him at all. Its just that I dont remember a positive comment from him. But its cool. No offence to you or to PPH or to ANON. Take it easy guys..

    Cheers


  19. Adnan (unregistered) on August 30th, 2006 @ 9:37 am

    @illusionFs:there is no need of sorry neither any of us took it personally.He does make positive comments like in a recent threat he promoted democracy.What is negative for one is actually postive for many.Have fun without gun.
