I heard alot about Port Grand so during my recent Karachi visit, I went to Port Grand. Location was very good, but really not impressed with food.
Start from Parking, they forget people will come on Cars, there is no parking place except to Park roadside. To Enter into Port Grand you need to pay Rs300 per person, they will deduct Rs100 for entrance fee and you will get Rs200 prepaid coupons to use anywhere in Port Grand. There are no entry charges for children under 12.
Its not a shopping or entertainment place as claimed, of-course no one will go there to buy CDs. Just a dining place with very less food outlets which include OPTP, Omore, others I never heard before like Pizzeria (Seems like they got name from Justin Bieber’s video) with no taste of food. Didnt find sea food anywhere. Its not wrong if i say its more a Snacks place than a dining place. There is only ONE desi place in Port Grand decks that is Ghaffar Kabab house with house full.
Hope next time I visit PG its much more improved. 🙂
During my Clifton Karachi visit I find out Hyperstar aka Carrefour is opening its 2nd super market in Karachi. Its as bigger as Lahore currently under final stage and expect to open soon.
Beggars of modern era are also not behind. Now they are using modern “business” techniques.
I was about u sleep but i got following sms so couldn’t stop myself to come online and write something about these new techniques.
App jo koi bhi ho plz mere is num. 03366717^^^ pe 20 rps send kr do main hospital main musibt man hun plz Allah, rasol k waste mera yakin kro bad main wapis kr don he
Well you might also be familiar with such sms’s and im getting same sms from different numbers since years. Well the shameful part is they (if they are Muslims) are selling their faith for just Rs 20. There are many other tricks of begging through sms like “Today is Warid/Ufone Anniversary Fwd this sms to 828 / 7171 to get free balance of Rs 100” but mostly people don’t notice the date or the start of sms which is usually the balance transfer code. Balance is gone when you fwd such sms’s.
Other tricks are calling people and saying “Your number just won Rs 500,000 in a draw call me back after five minutes for details” since everyone dreams to become rich so people give easily scratch card numbers without confirming anything.
In either case report to call center and they will get their number blocked.
Email is old tool for beggars, they usually trick you using Phishing and now these days begging for charity for Swat victims. Today i got email from a Pakistani named person who was asking for charity and he needed it to be sent to his Paypal (well that was new for me, beggars got Paypal)
Another Advise do not Forward SMS without confirming anything such as false and baseless rumors about Multinational companies (KFC, Lays, Mentos etc).
