Karachi Wishlist 12

1) Sunday Bazaar throughout the week (it’s terrible having to wait all week long for it!)
2) 24 hour stores! (yes, I needed credit last night and nowhere was open! it’s sad, really)
3) Streetlights. (it’s so difficult driving at night :/)

Previous Karachi Wishlists: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11.

    “3) Streetlights. (it’s so difficult driving at night :/)”

    especially when the drivers coming in the opposite direction have high beam on.

    how about mass transit?

    @XAMRAN: Sexist comments are not appreciated at all.

    I agree on your other points But I’m not for street lights. Most western contries don’t have street lights except in some major intersections. It’s senseless, since car has headlights which are adequate for normal driving. It’s just a waste of tax payers money and electricity.

    Amen to 24 hour stores!
    btw…try call and surf (111-750-750) for credit and ISP cards..They work over the phone, 24 hours…and then collect cash next day. Extra charge Rs. 10.

    I assume you must have wasted more than that in fuel looking for credit! Give them a call, register once and then keep your registration number. It takes 10 mins and takes a lot of hassle off!

    Xamran – oh man that was hilarious but rude for Kiran yaar. Your comment reminded me of a Jim Carrey movie Dumb & Dumber. Remember the headlight scene???

    5) Some clubs buts thats only possible after 1000 years after we get water and electricity..

    LOL !!
    i agree here about sexist comments..
    specially if you comment on something that is universaly accepted as a fact..
    I am sure she is a good driver and its the fog/mist/sand in the air that makes visibility poor =D

    Street lights is a good idea for karachi
    every now and then someone is pulled over and asked to empty his pocket and surrender his car.. ppl hesitate in robbing where theres enough light..

    btw: About sunday bazar
    its there on tuesdays as well, but they call it tuesday bazar.. i have failed to understand why =D

  13. Jamash (unregistered) on June 30th, 2006 @ 12:54 pm

    @ Sunday bazaar: I have seen, Sunday bazar, Tuesday bazar, Wednesday bazar, Friday bazar, and Saturday bazar and these makeshift markets are suppose to be “bachat” Bazars but the price of common commodities in these markets are always higher then that of the retail shops so first of all they should not be called “Sunday bazar or bachar bazar” the right name for these markets should be “Loot Bazar”.

    Now why would anyone need a Loot bazar for 7days a week i.e 2 more days in a week ??

    JAMASH…sorry bro…but exactly what brand of underwear and other stuff you buy from a SUNDAY BAZAAR. these BAZAARs are always cheap. (no gay pun intended)..just karachi fun intended. LOL

    “Dumb and Dumber” – what a great description Zain has provided for himself and Xamran :)

  17. Umer Zaman (unregistered) on July 3rd, 2006 @ 12:33 pm

    ammm besides the price, its having everything available at one point that matters at times..

    i just got a cd rack from sunday market, that was the only thing i went there for cause i know it’ll take me a second to pick it up from there and i know where to look

    i am sure if i try i might be able to get the same thing somewhere else for maybe even better/cheaper price but i’ll have to find it out..
