Stop Thinking.. Start Moving

The latest offering from Engro Foods, the makers of Olpers Milk, who gave us “Subha bakhair zindagee”, comes Olwell calcium enriched milk. But its not the milk which has taken my attention, its the campaign surrounding it. It literally ‘forces’ you to act, forces you to do have it with catch phrases as

Start training in rhytm… so you’re unstoppable
Start moving to the beat… so you’re unstoppable and so on.

Edit: Apologies for getting the heading wrong, there are actually TWO similar slogans, and i read one of each. They are 1) Stop Thinking, Start Moving and 2) Stop Ageing Start Living.

New Coffee Shop: Cafe Coffee

A new coffee shop has recently opened up in Zamzama (as if there weren’t enough in the first place). The place is called Cafe coffee and I must say so far I have been very impressed. Being new and kind of hidden (found across the street of Roasters Coffee, behind Arizona Grill) not many people know about this hidden gem yet.
So let me tell you the highlights of my experience.

The prices are actually decent and the selection is excellent. Their food menu is also quite delicious, with subs sandwiches and cakes.
I’ve had the frappes, the green tea and the peach iced tea, and have yet to be disappointed. The taste is actually really nice!
Beyond these seemingly common features of coffee shops these days, the one thing that has made Cafe Coffee stand out to me has been the service. All the waiters seem to enjoy their work, with big smiles, and will truly go the length to ensure you’re well taken care of.
The ambience of the place is also very bright with a diversity of music playing in the background.
There is even a divided section for smoking and non smoking! Not like Costa’s make shift non smoking room, Cafe Coffee has 2 different levels, smoking being on the upper level.
The one drawback I see is that there is only one shared bathroom, so if you’re in a group and you all need the washroom, you may find yourself waiting.

Do check it out, it’s a great alternative to the coffee goer enthusiast.

Spotted at the Iqra University Gulshan-e-Iqbal campus, this CNG rickshaw may not look very different but it really stands out for being super quiet. Manufactured locally and costing around 1,45,000/-, this new alternative is soon to replace the noisy ones from the streets of Karachi for ever.
