I'm back after two days
Hello Jo and Everyone
First of all, I am sorry for coming this late. I hope you won’t mind. I had prepared the post yesterday but due to power shutdown I could not post it.
Thank you Jo! It sounds great that you like tea too and what I say about the ginger tea, this makes a perfect evening tea. To prevent low blood pressure, it is best to drink half glass of water before tea. This controls dehydration in the body.
Jo, I’ve read your post just now and the pictures are lovely and I’ve fallen in love with the first one. It’s beautiful. And these two woodpeckers are so cute. I hope Scratchy and Raffles won’t mind.
I hope I will be better in articles day by day. So far we have learned three things from you: Words coined by Shakespeare, idioms and articles. And I’m sure including me; all the readers are going to be benefited from these. Here are the answers to the options:
1) the 2) the 3) a (this can be any home exhibition) 4) the 5) no article.
Here in Pakistan, it depends upon the location as where one decides to by a home. Like the areas where the riches live, they usually buy bungalows and the initial price begins with 2 crore (£1 equals to Rs 120 Pakistani currency). Apartments are also built around these posh areas and the prices start from 30, 00,000 and go up to 80, 00,000. Whereas in average areas, prices begin from 500,000, and reach up to 50, 00,000. People usually prefer to live in an apartment. I also live in an apartment and my father had bought it for 75,000 when he was not married. Property prices also vary from city to city. In the cities like Islamabad and Lahore, the prices are higher than in Karachi. People also live on rent. Property prices also depend on the budget, like the rise in the prices of cement and iron will also raise the property prices.
Children usually live with their parents and leave homes only when they go abroad or the other city (in Pakistan) for higher studies. When the boys get married, most of them decide to live in a separate home. If they come from a well off family and have a good job, they buy their own homes. Some choose to live in a joint family.
Dear friends thank you very much for your kind comments
Thanks Ana Paula that you liked my drawing. We also make the kind of tea you have described about. You see even living far apart we share the same spices. I also remember that I have to tell you about the writers I like to read.
Maria it will always be a pleasure to read your comments.
Alinor I don’t read poetry very much but I just love to draw and what I say about gardening, I love it since I was younger but I’ve got a chance to do it now.
Wisarut I am glad to read your comments on my work and that you read my posts.
Benka I am going to write about the travel in Pakistan shortly.
A BIG SMILE fro you Hyoshil.
Thanks James, for your keen interest. I really like the way you gather information and explain it. I am going to write more about Pakistan very soon.
Tomo, there is an organization here that offers courses from handicrafts to fashion designing at reasonable fees. I’ve also taken many courses from there because they are not very time consuming and one can take them besides studies. I still have to take an advance course in sketching which I am going to take after my exams. I liked your description of ocha and senbei. Like senbei, we also have some snacks that are made from rice. And it would be a great idea if we talk more about tea times in our countries.
You are right Manas, eyes speak a lot without saying a word. As you asked about my rabbit (baby brother), we used to have it 14 years ago. We only have his sweet memories now. Answering to your question about masala tea and green tea, yes, I do know about them and have also picked the recipe of masala from the website of Tarla Dalal. I like green tea chilled with honey and lemon. Have you tasted Jasmine flavor in green tea? I like its taste very much.
You know Leila, life is incomplete without purpose. Feeding pigeons, drawing sketches and sowing seeds and looking after them like kids make me think that God has made this world really beautiful. But we never happen to see around. Sitting and doing nothing makes one bone lazy and that’s very dangerous.
Pleased to read your comment Salman.
Celio it’s also nice to read your comments thanks.
Hello, a reader without name. Thanks that you liked reading about tea snacks. I will post a link about libraries in my tomorrow’s post.
Thanks Lana for your lovely comments. I like espresso too.
Richard Li, the climate of Pakistan is not very hot but some cities experience hot summers.
Marianna I liked your comments very much and thanks you liked my drawings.
Maru, I’m glad that you like my posts.
Thank you Tejasvi and as a learner of English language I would say that read, write and speak. To learn any language it is important that we practice all the three things together.
Haivan thanks for your nice comments and reading my blogs.
I agree with Minch’s comment that we are not virtual friends we are real friends and I’m happy to have such lovely friends. Thank you All!
