Everything becomes frozen!

For my six year old daughter, every toy and stationary item seems to have a frozen edition and it is evident  when you look at her room. From her erasers to her lunch box  and from her hair accessories to her party dresses, everything is under the influence of Frozen's Elsa and Anna.So much so that even her floor mat has Anna and Elsa on it.

Even the board games and puzzles should also have a frozen edition and I guess, this is story of every other home having a 3-10 year old daughter who is mesmerised by the Frozen characters.Even the walls and cupboards of my daughter's room are adorned with Frozen's stickers. Such is the impact of this movie that kids want everything of theirs to have some correlation with the movie. Recently we went to watch the movie ,"Cinderella" only because it had a small portion known as "Frozen Fever"!.

Now the next item on my daughter's wish list is a Frozen school bag and I have promised her that for new school year . That's why I have started looking for a good quality Frozen school bag from now onwards as my six year old wants a good quality spacious Frozen school bag!

In love with the cultural side of Lahore

This weekend, we went to dinner at Andaaz restaurant situated in old Lahore near Badshahi Mosque. (which is seventh largest mosque of the world).This is the second time we went there and we enjoyed as much as the first time we went there. The food is super delicious plus the view of the majestic Badshahi mosque is breathtaking.

What makes the whole place unique is its cultural touch. Lahore fort(also known as Shahi qila) which is also a famous historical place of Lahore is also located in the same area. Then there is the food street inundated with restaurants known for delectable traditional food.

Moreover, you get handicrafts here at relatively cheap prices.

Plus the music of flute played there adds to the flavour of food served.This whole area is a major tourist attraction of Lahore.

In an era, where Lahore is known for its beautiful roads and for its shopping centers, the old Lahore urges you to admire the cultural beauty of the city. The Badshahi mosque(built by sixth Mughal emperor Aurangzeb in 1671), Lahore fort , GPO (built in 1887 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee)plus the beautiful Government College( which is also my college) adds beauty to the whole area. And if you on your way cross the canal which is beautifully decorated during spring, it is surely going to complete your trip.It is not only an entertainment trip for you and your kids but an educational trip too.
