Medical Services

September 25th, 2009 No comments

Lets talk about medical services in Karachi- not the spontaneous ones, but the planned , elective ones.

To start of with, the mention of  AgaKhan is a must. Very ideally situated in the middle of the city, the very expensive hospital can be compared to any international hospital of the world, in terms of speed, staff manners, cleaniness, capable doctors… you name it and we can compare it!

Its next door neighbour is Liaquat National Hospital. Bigger in size than AKU, the hospital is not far behind with regards to the above mentioned features.Also, the cost factor is favourable for the patients and the services are nearly as good as AKU.

Another old hospital is Ziauddin, it initially started off in Nazimabad on a very huge area, back in 1977.It now has a branch that can cater to many more patients and has created a feeling for patients to be happy and satisfied, when leaving.

Ofcourse, there are many more hospitals in Karachi, but to read about them, you need to login to www.Starz.pk

Happy Reading

Naheed Supermarket

September 15th, 2009 No comments

One issue I also had was what to buy for my significant other on his birthday or be it the ‘angreezo ka din’ 14th Feb. Naheed Superstore has solved that issue to a great extent. If your better half is even a mild-food lover, then perfumes and colognes are not the only options.The non-perishable food items such as canned fruit cocktails, microwave popcorns, flavoured tea, sealed Danish cookies are a good option.
The typical ideas of ties, belts and cufflinks are also there, but one gets more and more ideas as they venture inside the shop.
Naheed Store has much to offer and the best part is…its easy on the wallet

HomeStores

I often had this question in mind: If money was not an issue, and being a typical middle class Karachi gal, where would I shop?
I suppose my answer would be a complete homestore, where I would be able to get all in one stop..Maybe something like Ikea. As this isnt here in Karachi, my next option would be ChenOne

With Kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms made to die for, I would gladly shop there.Lets start with the bedroom, you will find complete furniture options, different shapes of mirrors for the dresser and excellent variety of bedsheets, quilts and cover. Along side to this is the availabilty of matching or contrasting bathroom fixtures, counter displays,even matching bathroom slippers.
Moving to the kitchen section, you will find a sample table, all laid for, with too-good-to be true dinner set. But ofcourse, all this comes with a price tag.

Another competitor to ChenOne is Habitt, which is in the market for more than 9 years. A local chain, it has designs and ideas which can be compared to any international brand. The accessories available for your lounge, drawing room and outdoor seating area are of superb quality and finish.

And I should not forget Zubaida’s HomeStore. Many people consider this only as a shop related to children and their related stuff, but there are multiple branches of Zubeida’s with Zubeida HomeStore catering to a complete solution for all your home questions.

Like I said before, everything comes with a price, so dont forgot to take all your credit cards.
Happy shopping!
