Port Grand Retail & Entertainment Complex

Yesterday I received an email from a friend about the most awaited food street of Karachi which is still under construction. If i recall correctly the place has been under construction since quite a few years under the Nati Jetty bridge. With this the curious I thought of investigating. I took the only clues that i had to further investigate (the email from a friend). On further investigation I found that Port grand a US based company is working on this project and it was expected to get completed in 2006 but for unknown reasons they are almost 3 years behind the project deadline.

I am fond of street mAAlish (Massage) so last month when I reached for mAAlish at Natty Jetty I found that all mAAlishiyas were gone and people were not allowed to stand on the bridge. Upon asking a ranger jawan who was standing alert at around 3AM in the morning he replied that the TPO(Town Police Officer) imposed this ban.

From the email and the investigation done, i guess it looks like we should expect an opening of Grand food street in the near future, or my gut feelings are incorrect and it is just another way of getting BATTHAs from poor mAAlishiyas.

    "are you sure they were caught from near karachi"

    after seeign them live in a fish tank, fasee got out of his retrograde amneisa, and remembered, boss had close relations with those foreign trawlers that roam into our sea side and mop up all the exotic species and export them all….only a few get to to taste or even see what rare stuff we have like lobsters and king prans…..i havent seen them but my current boss was telling me bout a contact who supply that frsh at your door steps.

    "its the only option available…"

    If you are so susceptical to the chill and cold you can try typical English bitter daft beer which is drunk at room temperature but that is not available in Pakistan. What you can do is if you get the chill take double dose of brandy to start off with and then single dose after every 4 hours till the chill goes away or the brandy finishes whichever happens later.

    Sorry for wrongly addressing the above comments to Fasee.
    For you there can be another option also. Lock yourself in a room and don’t sit in the sea breeze. The main thing is you should get your priorities right like W C Field who says:

    When he read about the evils of drinking he gave up reading:-)

    Exactly. Now you are catching on to the ‘spirit’ of this game. Snadwich is just an excuse.

    this would only make me a shershah suri the second….who build the GT road when he had no trucks….not even a suzuki pickup….lol

    the brandy finishes whichever happens later.

    so first I invent the chill and then I defrost myself….I have seen in movies what brandy can do in the freezing cold…..and doing so I may compromise on my club sandwich….and the cool breeze and the setting sun and let somebody else enjoy the labor of my love….wow! what a cool council you are proving your self to be……
