Munira is a hobbit. She lives in a bubble and shares it with her husband (Huz a.k.a Hozi) her daughter (Amu) and a black Persian cat (Fuzzy). These make periodic appearances in her blog.

Munira likes to read, play Scrabble, do gardening, take pictures, sketch, paint, cook, clean, stitch, and has also been seen spending quite a lot of time just sitting around brooding about stuff. Lately she has taken to writing about stuff that she broods about.

Hopefully, through this here blog, she’ll be able to share glimpses of life in her corner of the sprawling city that is Karachi, and at times perhaps some other corners of her country that is Pakistan.

  12. LeRoy Dean says:

    Good to meet you, Munira.

    1. munira says:

      Ditto LeRoy. Thank you for the poem….I posted it on my Days of Yore blog in the ‘About’ page ๐Ÿ™‚ Loved it.

    You might not recognize my “face” because I’m wearing a new one and here to tell you about a new blog site because I know you can keep a secret. Here’s a place to post things that don’t fit on your personal blog. Please come visit, tell your friends, twitter, or submit a post if you want to but remember, it’s totally ANONYMOUS, so leave all real names out of it! (Go ahead and erase this post if you want– it’s for your eyes only.)

  14. Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, Munira! I’ve never been to Pakistan–New Delhi is the closest I’ve gotten. Your blog is fascinating, and the photos on your photo blog are stunning!

    1. munira says:

      I thank ye too, Kathryn! Flattered is the word!

  15. wow! your blog looks so cool! Interesting stuff and very well presented. will keep visiting.

    1. Munira says:

    1. Munira says:

      You too Rashmi! ๐Ÿ˜€

  17. Munira, Hi! So glad to have found your blog! It is so AWESOME! Will keep coming back! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Munira says:

      Yours looks like it’s going to be loads of fun too!
      Thanks so much for dropping by. Look forward to your comments in the future ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. I like the new look of your blog!

    1. Munira says:

      Oh no! I think it’s the same as yours Sibella! I’m such a copy cat! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

      1. Same, but different! ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Salman Latif says:

    Quite an artistic hobbit, she is ๐Ÿ˜› It’s rather…unusual to find so much peace in the life of a blogger from Karachi. Or perhaps you look at life through a lens of innate goodness and hence the blog ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Munira says:

      Seek peace and ye shall find, is what I always say ๐Ÿ˜› Plus you can’t go wrong by living in a bubble ๐Ÿ˜‰

  20. rajipatil says:

    Hi.Just came across ur blog..would b following it

    1. Munira says:

      Ooh, thank you! I love being ‘followed’ ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you like my stories.

    Munira the hobbit-what kind are you? A Took, Baggins or Brandybuck? Since I’m a hopeless LOTR fan and everything middle-earth: I had to stop & say hi! I am reminded of a Tolkeinism: ‘not all who wander are lost’. Great work! Thanks,

    1. Munira says:

      Asad!!!!! You visited!!!!
      Most tickled am I….. *grins ear to ear*…..and as far as hobbits are concerned, I think I’m a pretty good combination of all three clans….they were all related anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

      ‘Not all who wander are lost’, eh? This should be my tagline!!

  22. auntyuta says:

    The things you love make for a happy life. You seem to be concentrating on the positive things, I love your photos. They’re beautiful!

    Maybe you can blog one day about SCRABBLE. Is there anything you’d like to tell your readers about this game?

    1. Munira says:

      Awww, thanks Aunty Uta! Funny you should say that, because I think Iโ€™m a negative person mostly
      And what can I say about Scrabbleโ€ฆ.itโ€™s such an addictive game, and so much fun, especially when you come across interesting people as opponents. I have made so many virtual โ€˜friendsโ€™ through it, apart from the fact that I staved off so many hours of boredom!

  23. Bill says:

    Love the blog Munira! Thank you for reminding me to read so that I could find it! You are so great that way!

  24. Bill says:

    Congratulations! You must be so proud! You know what I mean, I just can’t answer the normal way so here I am! ๐Ÿ™‚ The pictures are amazing, and I love the new one!

    1. Munira says:

      Thank you Bill! ๐Ÿ˜€

  25. Munira, I saw your comment on my blog about subscribing and I’m afraid I have no idea how to set that up! But I do try to post once a week, usually on Thursday, if that helps.


    The GD

    1. Munira says:

      That helps! I just need reminders, otherwise I forget, and that is the biggest problem here. By the time I remember to visit you, there is so much to catch up on!
      Wish you were on WordPress ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    1. Munira says:
