Vista International Is Closed

Bahria Town has several travel & tour service consultants, if you go to telephone directory and check travel & tour section there are around 10 to 12 options that are available. Vista International is one of them it was opened in Bahria Town in November last year. I’ve written on Vista International and their services here at the time of its opening. Today, I saw that after a few months of struggling it has closed and there wasn’t any activity, their office turned out to be a vacant space.

 

Then I was thinking maybe they planned to change its location so I called them but they didn’t pick. So, apparently Vista International is closed now and of I hear about re-locating then I will update it. Vista International was located at the tulip block, sector C, near to The Great Mall and adjacent to Ashley furniture.

 

Well, you still have other options to get travel & tour services to check the details go to this link.

Freshly Second Branch Is Active

After a long stand by the second branch of Freshly by Metro has finally opened in Sector B. The opening soon board was placed in February and like the first branch, it also took almost 3 months to finish all the renovation and finishing work out there. The soft opening of this store was held two days ago and today was the official opening which was held after 2:00 PM. This store is same as the other freshly stores in Lahore.

 

Well, one thing I noticed that maybe the parking space will going to be a problem for the customers and store because it isn’t convenient as the first branch of freshly. And, I mostly get stuck on this specific road in the evening where the store is located. But, still for all the freshly’s frequent customers the D market’s parking has ample of space if it utilizes properly.

Waffle Cone Ice-Cream

The above kinds of shops especially for kids are rare in Bahria Town and you can hardly find a few shops that have the cone machine. And, despite its quality and hygiene problems you still can’t resist your kids not to visit. Actually, with a little pocket money, waffle cone ice-creams are best mini treats for them in the summers. This shop has opened a few days ago in D-Market and offers different flavors of cone ice-creams, shakes, coffee and other snacks.

 

I think they charge Rs. 30/- for small scoop and Rs. 50/- for large. A similar shop was also opened months ago by the name of Wido Waffle Cone Ice-Cream in Jasmine Block, Sector C.

7 Nights Cue Club

I did not know about 7 Nights Cue Club before but I visited it recently with one of my friends. It was opened in Bahria Town more than a month ago. Now, with the addition of this one we’ve around 6 to 7 snooker clubs in Bahria Town. 7 Nights Cue Club has 5 tables and a separate area for refreshment where you’ll get cold drinks, snacks, and cigarettes. I think timings are important for everyone to visit any snooker club and most youngsters prefer to hit snooker clubs after 10:00 to 11:00 PM. And this snooker club is the best due to its timing schedule because 7 Nights Cue Club remains open for the customers 24 hours.

 

Charges:

Charges are also less than other snooker clubs and it is Rs. 80/-.

 

Location:

7 Nights Cue Club is located at Chambaili Block, Sector C, above Eco Star building.

And, I was expecting a strong and snappy advertisement before it’s opening but I didn’t see any billboard or road streamers in Town. Today, I saw the ’Now Open’ banner of What’a Paratha and before writing here I informed my brother about this and he said, it is just a banner the building is still empty and they haven’t started serving.

Engine Care—Car Wash & Oil Change

I usually prefer going to Iris Block car service station rather than any other option because of few reasons. I already wrote about this one a few months ago check here to know about it. The car service stations lacks in Bahria Town and there are hardly 3 to 4 options that are available and two of them are owned by Bahria Town(Iris block & PSO service stations). Well, whenever I use Jalyana route I never notice in this particular area what is happening there. But, recently I noticed that many residents also visit Jalyana market so from now onwards I will start updating things from Jalyana market as well.

 

Here is the first thing to update a car service station which was opened a few days ago. Engine care is more than a service station because they’re offering different services including engine check-ups, all kinds of engine oils, and other maintenance services for your vehicles. Normally, it is not easy to change your car maintenance specialists and to trust on the products they provide. But, they claimed that all of their engine oils are original and as it can be seen in above picture, on every change of engine oil, you can get a free car wash. Other than this offer, they charge Rs. 200/- for a simple wash and Rs. 400/- for a complete service.

 

Timings:

Opening time: 9:00 AM.
Closing time: 10:00 PM.

 

Address: Jalyana near Gate no. 1, Bahria Town.

Opulence Designer Cake Lounge

After a long time, here is something different to write about because usually all the new openings are encircled to restaurants and departmental stores. Well, this time its a cake bakery that has opened two weeks ago by the name of Opulence Designer Cake Lounge. I took the above picture and got to know about it for more than a month ago but didn’t catch up with anyone there to get the details of it until today.

 

Well, you can easily get special cakes from various bakeries in Bahria Town but as per my information Opulence, Designer Cake Lounge is now the only cake bakery in Bahria Town that offers customized handcrafted cakes. Similarly, Bakers ville (which is one of the finest bakeries in Bahria Town) also have the option for us to get customized cakes but selling handmade cakes isn’t their core business and they’ve limited choices of cakes.

 

So, for now, Opulence Cake lounge is solely offering all kinds of handmade and fondant cakes for each occasion. According to them, Opulence Bakery in Pakistan is first cake brand that meets the intercontinental standards of cream da le cream and all of their cakes are made with quality and satisfying taste. You can take a look at their cakes by visiting Opulence Bakery’s official Facebook page and website. Here are the types of cakes:

 

  • Fondant Cakes.
  • Birthday Cakes.
  • Wedding Cakes.
  • Signature Cakes.
  • Custom Cakes.
  • Designer Cakes.

 

Orders & Charges:

I think the most appealing feature of Opulence Bakery is that you can have the choice to order any design of cake choosing by your own and show them the picture of your desire cake and you will get it done. The order must be placed before 24 hours of delivery.

 

Charges:

They charge Rs. 1000/- per pound and it is same for all designs and types of cakes.

 

Despite having online services, Opulence Bakery first branch is also operational in Phase 5, DHA. And its a second branch in Bahria Town.

 

Location:

Opulence Designer Cake Lounge is located at Jasmine Block, Sector C, Commercial zone, behind girls hostel, adjacent to Pan & Grill Restaurant and near to Bahria Golf & Country Club.
