Lazy Pakiland Days

Oh, how much i long for one of the old days i used to spend in Islamabad / Pakistan.

I visited Pakistan about 4 or 5 times back when i was a teenager; as my dad used to work at the Tunisian embassy there.
It would be summer time, and as soon as school ended, we’d be picking up our baggage and leaving Tunisia to go spend the summer with my dad in frying hot Pakistan while tourists were flooding into Tunisia to enjoy the summer and the sea.

Back then, Islamabad was one of the most boring cities on earth. Even though Lahore and Karachi were great.
So, my daily schedule was as follows:

  • Wake up at 1PM.
  • Have lunch.
  • Watch a movie.
  • Play computer games while listening to music.
  • Take my bike and go out to the library, music store, video rental store, ice cream store at Jinnah Super Market where i respectively buy magazines, grab some new tapes, rent some new movies, load up with some ice cream.
  • Go home.
  • Watch a movie.
  • Play computer games while listening to new music.
  • Have dinner.
  • Watch movie.
  • Watch another movie.
  • Watch MCM (French music channel) until 7 or 8 AM.
  • Go to bed.

It was really great 🙂
I created my own lazy schedule and spent the whole summer that way.
Did i suffer from routine ? Nah, it was just perfect that way, lol…
Plus, i’d change a bit in my schedule every now and then, for example sometimes i’d go to Radio City to get movies and tapes instead 😛

Now, as i look at how hectic my life has been this past period, i really wish for a few of those old days to come back…
Oh, that would be a delight…
