On the 25th of March. 2017, my sister Warda and I were invited by Maximus Advertisers at the Grand Launch of *The Entertainer* in Emporium Mall, Lahore. Since we are from Karachi we had no clue about this Toyland and how excited we'll get once we reached the event.




Welcome to the Dark side

This is the company's 5th store, having started this project first in the capital city, Islamabad in 2014 and over the span of 3 years, The Entertainer has spread in Lahore too bringing the  high- quality  and licensed toys from global toy brands. The Entertainer, under the Umbrella of SEFAM Group identified the needs of Pakistani market for good quality toys and thus brought UK's favorite and largest toy retailer to the country. Lets just say you will have a squealing, screaming child if you did not buy anything from the store.

You WILL end up buying something because YOU will end up drooling over the toys.Now about the Launch itself. It was a fun experience. My sister and I had a great time going through the aisles.

The store has designed proper sections for the toys at display. For instance there is one*Imagine and Play*, *Arts and Craft*, *Games and Puzzles*, *Action and Adventure*, *Construction Toys etc.*. Now isn't that great. 


All sorted and stacked for you to browse through and buy. The brand caters to all ages and has in stock from soft toys to more challenging and logical games/toys. The focus is to facilitate the children with toys that are engaging as well as educational so you can say that the brand offers Play and Learn themed toys as well.

The ambiance is very hip and modern with a huge space and outer area where you can enjoy your order overlooking the hustle bustle of MM Alam Road.

Once again this post is going to be about a restaurant that opened its doors recently in D.H.A, Lahore.




So lets begin. My sister, Warda and I were invited by the Team of Frypan and Socialinc Pr at the Official Launch of this hip and cozy place. Its a small restaurant with a modern layout and rich warm tones is the general theme all over (yup perfect for pictures) and can accommodate approximately 15 people.

We were greeted by Tuba and Abdullah, the young couple behind this restaurant. Once seated, the food was served and mind you it was Delicious.

Bombay Chicken

 Both of us were literally fixated on Bombay Chicken which was a rich, creamy and spicy curry with chicken pieces(yum) and the Chilli Cheese bites were saucy with veggie chunks.
Chilli Cheese Bites
It was a blast of flavors on our taste-buds. Not only does FryPan offer innovative cooking, a fusion of desi and modern food, their serving style is also different.They present their customer's order in a FRY PAN.

Mint Margarita
Mexican Kaltama
Yup! Abdullah with his team has come up with dishes which are spot on in terms of flavor, not over-powering at all and most importantly the price point is economical which in this day and age is difficult to find.

It was a passion of Abdullah's to go into the restaurant business and now he has done it. It clearly shows in the style of food the restaurant offers, few recipes developed from home  and others created with his chefs. He believes in Teamwork and shares the credit of his restaurant with his team. 

We had a lovely afternoon and for sure will visit this place soon. Enjoy the pictures.

Food Tasting at Opium Chinese and Thai.

Hello Everyone! Hope all of you are doing well!

This blog post is going to be about food tasting at Opium Chinese and Thai Restaurant here in Gulberg, Lahore.

Since I am a Karachiite, I did not know about good Chinese and Thai Cuisine in Lahore. So when the team of TransmediaPk invited me and Warda for food tasting, we were pretty excited to try out this place.



On the 13th of March, 2017, we were welcomed by the lovely team of Transmediapk and the dedicated staff and owner, Mr. Kamran Afzal of the restaurant. 
Team B.Sheikh with Owner Mr. Kamran Afzal and Team Transmedia

Once seated and delicious food in our plates, Mr. Kamran proceeded to tell us about his cuisines, discussing in great detail the menu, the service, the concept behind cooking and the ingredients that went into different dishes. Just so you know, his staff if fully trained and gets a refresher course brought in Thailand and China to maintain the quality.
Team B.Sheikh with Owner, Mr. Kamran Afzal

Mr. Kamran is so passionate about the right ingredients that he especially imports certain raw vegetables and now grows his own Basil; seeds straight from Thailand, to give the perfect aroma,taste and authentic feel of the cuisine. This goes to show how dedicated he is.







All through our childhood, we have visited Thailand on and off. Since our family lived there, we had hands on experience with the street food, dealing with locals for months so yes we could clearly taste memories on our taste-buds.




The Lunch Buffet they were offering consisted of a complete range of Salads to Main Course from rice to noodles, chicken and beef. My favourite ones were Red Curry, Kung Pao, Chowmein and the best part was that nothing was overly seasoned.



After we were done with food, we were given a tour of the premises and guess what surprise was in store for us. Apart from being a Restaurant, Mr. Kamran also offers the facility of lodging and 24 Hour service of food. YES!! Imagine you can order Thai food anytime!
Room
 The overall architecture gives a very spacious feel and the walls plus light fixtures are custom made with Bamboo being focus.




 Now about the hotel/lodging. Offers a total of 14 rooms from Standard to Premium. Then there is the hall which can accommodate upto 175 persons.
Outdoor sitting arrangement
So if you have any occasion be it Birthdays to small wedding parties, this is the place to be.
The Hall
The hotel as you can see in the pictures has a very luxurious and modern feel to it. If you have guests coming from abroad then you can always have them stay here.



All in all, if you haven't visited this place,then we think you should.

Hope you enjoyed this article.
Much love,
Team B.sheikh.
