When I reached the daewoo station early morning on the 16th of January 2010, the last words my mom said to me were:
Jinhay Lahhore nai waikhiya……..
Ooa jamiya eei nai…….
So I guess I have recently been born!
Anyways…….the trip to Lahore was an exceptional one, since we were all hyped up for the YLES (Young Leaders and Entrepreneurs Summit) 2010 to take place in LUMS 🙂 and apart from that the whole ride was amazing….playing dumb charades and watching movies and how can i forget stopping at the most memorable and unforgettable stops on the way (especially da conditions of the toilets)
The first thing we saw when we entered Lahore were large green patches of land surrounded by a dreamy unlimited supply of fog 🙂
Although we were shivering in cold but still the beauty of the place caught us first 😉
Memories in Lahore were countless…….Me (Amna), Sarim Mehmood, Shumaila Rajput, Jawad Mir and Bilal Saya had the best time ever together, coming from different disciples and perceptions, we got to learn many things and proved ourselves through a journey of numerous challenges.
From the opening ceremony of YLES, motivated my Nadeem Chauhan early in the morning, to the workshops through which we socialized and made great friends, to the the part where we got crazy in the scavenger hunt, attending technical workshops, enjoying like hell in Noori’s Concert, to the part where we relaxed in the Chill room, participating in Umair Rana’s workshops, presenting our business idea in social enterprise and business events, making an advertisement on Milo, filling in our tummies at the formal dinner and lastly celebrating our experience in the closing ceremony…..these were just a glimpse into the wild memories that we collected in YLES!!!
Apart from LUMS, we had little time to roam around in Lahore, so we could only go to some special places and yes u guessed it rite………most of them were food outlets 🙂
Having nashta at Gougaysss, Bhaiyya kay scrumptious kabebs, Hafiz milk shop barkat market unndaron sher wala rubbri dhood, Maasoom’s ke brownies, Capri ki nihari, Cocoon bull ka cheese shawarma, Pizza time aur Fort view ki dhood pati………….. 🙂
I can never forget what an adventurous time we had in Lahore.
Just one word for the whole trip…………AWESOME!
