While growing up one thing i hated the most were my glasses, i got them when i was 6. I hated them as i was the only kid in my class who had them...i wanted to look like everyone else, blend in and look normal. The weird kid with glasses became my identity and i loathed it for a very long time. Many moons later i realised the hidden power within my weakness, the power of not blending in, the power of standing out, the power of weird. Today me and the weirdness live happily and enjoy the occasional attention we get. #glasses #spectacles #karachi #rayban #tomford #lindafarro #olivierpeople #paulsmith #walbyparker

Absolutely in love with asif’s ‘kohinoor’ its the priced jewel that the British took away from us along with million other things. But this kohinoor now will hang peacefully on my wall as a reminder to the British raj. @studio_asif_ahmed #sanatartgallery #karachi #collection

An October afternoon. #karachi
I officially hate mornings. #paulsmith #erdemxhm
The book looks good in the frame, and thats the core purpose of most things and some relationships i have in my life. They look good in the frame, some add vanity some just stand as a prop...mostly out of focus but they are there. It should be on us to decide who we want to have as a central subject of our story, not someone else. Today its tiger balm for me! #karachi #sundays #pyjamasareforgiving

The city i call home. Karachi oct, 2018. I am not sure how i feel about karachi, there are days when i love the evening breeze the mad mix of ethnicities and the great food and then there are days when i just hate everything about it. After spending 37 years in this city i have realised that maybe i love karachi but i dont like it. Love is an extreme emotion it has consequences and an expiry ‘like’ on the other hand is mellow more stable, its the same difference we have between a friend and a lover. Karachi is my lover but not my friend. #karachi

Few months ago i started eating healthy, i assumed it will be an easy ride BUT to my surprise it wasn’t. I realised that all good tasting things are amazing, beautiful, fulfilling and even got better packaging. these brown paper bags are filled with not so healthy edibles resting peacefully under anwar saeed’s painting, a painting about two men indulging in a very healthy relationship. Might appear wrong to some but they seem happy, just like these harmless paper bags make me feel, happy! #anwarsaeed #chawkandiart #karachi
