Heppy barday to the laoo of ma lyf, @smeeksf. I've wished you on the phone like a real friend already and also sent you explicit pictures on WhatsApp from our last trip together as your present. Now you're going to Dubai and I'm not there, but a very happy burday, to you, my dear (if you read this line carefully, it's a poem I've been writing for you since many years. And by many years I mean two seconds ago). Bye.
House hunting that causes heartbreak 😂 Saying no to an apartment with this view....because the rooms were way, way, way too small (smaller than the Aussie average) 😒😌 (I did ask @nabeel.moeen to join me and live the majority of our lives on this balcony and forget that we have other rooms but he said some dangerous words like 'be practical' (*gasp*) and like 'our stuff won't fit there' blah blah and blah blah. Okay 🐍). #lifestyleblogger #sydneyblogger #dubaiblogger #pakistaniblogger
I was looking around the train station the other day, so many people up and down the platform. And they all felt so...distant? As strangers should, but then again. When you've been in a place for a while, there's a familiarity with everything. Who you live with, your friends, the everyday people you meet again and again like the cashier at the convenience store or the guy who does your laundry. Even the strangers on the street are 'yours'. You don't know them and yet they're people you share the comfort of the same 'home' with and you move amongst them without association but with an ease. And then suddenly in a new city, new place, it all becomes unfamiliar. And you realise how even the strangers around you are no longer the warm, unknown company you didnt realise you had. It takes a while to find your calm, to find your place. I always look out for that moment when I truly start feeling at home in a new city - people to share my weekends with, my coffee place, my bookstore, my hangout spots. This time I'm going to wait and see when the strangers in Sydney also become 'mine'. 💛😌
New love of my life @katyperrycollections shoes that @therajalife helped me find at @brandsforlessuae for just about 100 aed before I left Dubai (swipe to see the heart that forms when you put them together). I've never felt such equal amounts of creep and love for the same object as much as when I first saw these shoes 😍 What do you guys think? Love, hate, confused? Your options are a) Super cute, pappi please b) Too wierd, no thank you c) So creepy but so awesome, pls wear them everyday d) [Your choice of socially acceptable response]. Please share 👟 (I don't mind if you want to burn them) #lifestyleblogger #sydneyblogger #dubaiblogger #pakistaniblogger #brandsforlessuae #katyperrycollections #katyperryshoes

Throwback to our living room (are you guys okay with five million throwbacks to our last apartment spaced out over the rest of my life?) and this @patang_fashionstore jacket that was packed into our container before we left and should be somewhere over the Indian Ocean as we speak (can't wait to have it back in my life). Random post as I have green tea.
