Jalal Sons Opening On 13th April

Yesterday, on my way back to Bahria Town from DHA EME sector, where I saw two of the colossus billboards on the main canal road. I took the picture of one billboard which has placed right in front of the main entrance of DHA EME. And, finally here is the exciting news of the opening of Jalal Sons near Bahria Town for all the residents. The date of its official opening has been revealed through the billboards and it will be opened for customers on Friday, 13th April.  As I have mentioned earlier that it will be fully operational for its customers by the mid of this month. They’ve started its speedy and prompt renovation work about a month ago. So, the building is almost complete and in a short span of time, they’re ready to open it after 4 days.

 

Location:

Everyone knows about its location and most residents aren’t well pleased with the location of the main canal road and opposite to Sukh Chan Garden. I too believe that the location of Jalal Sons should be more convenient and it supposed to be somewhere in the middle of Bahria Town. But, I think this location will also help Jalal Sons to target other surrounding areas especially Canal Gardens and Sukh Chan Gardens.

Lately, a football tournament by the name of Atletico Pakistan Cup for players of under 14 was organized by Summatus Sports(a sports investment company and engaged to promote football) collaborated with a famous Spanish football club Atletico Madrid. The officials and coaches of Atletico Madrid Football Club also came to Lahore to support this football competition.

Karachi BBQ & Biryani

There are few eatery options that only operates during the part of the calendar year and doesn’t require a year-round commitment. Some food businesses only float up and rely on the certain interval of weather and wouldn’t have require 24/7/365 commitment. For example, winters are a great time for grilled & fried fish places and the consumption of fresh fruit juices boost up when the summers go harsher. Only a few names work through the fall and winter as a sweep and enjoy the downtime through spring and summer.

 

But, I was wondering lately that the restaurants which are in striving phase and only be in the business either in summers or winters what will they do when the season changes?I think for those, there are only two options either they wipe out or they change the nature of their business, both of the options are strenuous. That is why, we’ve been facing too many closures in Bahria Town.

 

And here is the one example that made it through for now. Kashmiri Chai which was opened last year in December, they were only  selling Kashmiri Chai and haven’t secured much attention of customers even in winters so how can they manage it in summers? But, last week, they have totally changed its nature and changed it to a restaurant by the name of Karachi BBQ & Biryani. Now, they started selling all kinds of Barbeque items, Barbeque Biryani, and fast food items, you can get biryani in lunch time and Barbeque in evening. I’ve attached its menu card below.

Location:

Karachi BBQ & Biryani is located at 105, Side B, Jasmine Block, Sector C, Commercial zone, adjacent to G.M cables.

 

Timings:

Opening time: 12:00 PM.
Closing Time: Until Midnight.

Datchi Shoes Opening Soon

Nothing cures a headache better than a purchase of a new pair of sneakers! Shoe addiction is real and being a shoe addict there is always room for one more pair no matter how much footgear you already have. So, whether you’re wearing a formal one or a casual footwear it always defines your personality(which probably explain why shoes are the first thing you notice about a person). For ladies the higher the heels they wear, the better they feel. Without discriminating in types, you definitely need every kind of footwear for each occasion. In conclusion, without any second thought, it is like a hobby for me to collect them as many as I can. Now, you can have the idea why I am writing this and how much obsessed I’m towards shoes.

 

So, the problem starts here when you’re a shoe addict and residing in Bahria Town simultaneously. Becuase, the few brands that are available you can count them on your two fingers.

Urban-sole was also opened in Jasmine Mall but both Castillo and Urban Sole were closed after a couple of months of its opening. Borjan is still active and located on the main boulevard near talwar chowk. Comparatively, there are more choices for ladies than men. However, there is enormous space is yet to be filled for both men and women footwear brands.

Rikshaw Stands In Bahria Town

Undoubtedly, public transport is helping out thousands of people to reach anywhere on daily basis. Especially, Uber and Careem are the blessings for those who do not own any type of vehicle and make their lives a lot more easy than before. I’ve also noticed that many individuals despite having their personal vehicles still prefer Uber and Careem facility due to the traffic issues. Surely, by using these means of transportation you can get yourself to any location without rushing and long searching of public transports like old times. Nowadays, it is just a matter of one click to get a cab or auto at your precise spot.

 

But, the main reason behind this post is that due to any problematic reason if you are unable to reach any transportation means then Bahria Town has allocated two different location for RickshawStands without hampering traffic flow for other vehicles. You will easily find Auto Rikshaws at these stands, available 24 hours a day and they are not allowed to park anywhere in Town. Here are the locations of both stands:

 

The first rikshaw stand is located at Talwar Chowk, Sector C, behind Gourmet bakeries and Metro Heights, Talwar chowk is also a stop for coaster buses. The other rikshaw stand is established in Sector B, near to Eagle Heights and the main entrance of Safari Villas.

Last week crystal mart was active in Sector D, Jalal Sons and Freshly second branch both are on its way and opening soon. For now, another departmental store has spotted at the main boulevard, Sector C. To get to know which store is easily approachable, you can check all the departmental stores in telephone directory section.

 

EWU mart or WU mart, I have got a confusion with its name but I will confirm it by visiting there. They’ve completed all the work out there and it would be opened for customers in a day or two. For now, its  the only update about this store, all the other details along with pictures will be updated here after its opening.
