Go West!

Notice how the center of the city is shifting rapidly from a more Jinnah Superish F-6ish to a more F-10 F-11ish? Two weeks ago the twin city’s first ever Mc Donalds opened up in the F-9 park! More and more people drove towards it than Jinnah Super or Abpara… Now, with in a week after that opening, Pizza Hut has also landed here in F-10. Much to the delight of us people living across the park – as Pizza Hut in JS had stopped delivering “Oven Hot” Pizzas to this side. Reason or excuse? There werent enough clients here… Bleh!

This is actually a westwards trend. Not in some political social sense but in a more geographic context. Islamabad, with the grace of God, is expand rapidly! Two 4 or 5 star hotels are being constructed, sectors beyond F-11 are being readied for construction. This city has encompassed Rawalpindi from two side already… now the third side on the south is going be covered with the Defence Housing residential areas.

So yes, the trend is westwards…

    I agree with you Iqbal, but I think this is a temporary fix. The park will eventually be reduced to the most effective size for commercial use. No body was actually using that part of the Fatima Jinnah Park.

    BTW, some of us still buy Fillet-o-Fish thinking it might be the only Halal item on the list…!?!? :@
