HALA MADRID !!! Lisbon 2014

Hala Hala Hala ! And there go all the supporters of Atlético Madrid against me. What a match !!! what a TENSE match for both teams. And Surprisingly, despite the fact that Atletico was successful to make the 1st goal, all of my family rooted for Real Madrid right from the beginning without any disputes. This was the first soccer match ever to be watched by my family. No joke. Even I never had any interest in Football before, all I used to hear was how down to earth Messi Messi Messi is,  and how show off Ronaldo looks. But this is what I think: Ronaldo may be hard to digest sometimes but hey! Give that guy a break! His team got talent which got them this victory.

Here’s a quick recap summary of the match from the newly born soccer fan who thinks Bale is actually cool !

1: Atletico Team has got great players. But they are big whiners, cheaters and do not care for the yellow cards whatsoever!

2: David Villa has to do more than that to impress me. (No I am just joking. He’s married for God’s sake)

3: Pop corns are a must to watch the game. A consensus we all reached upon. Mom included.

4: Billion dollars Ronaldo has to stop taking his shirt off at every win. It becomes hard to root for Real Madrid then. But His act of affection towards his mate at the end of the match, that was just beyond words cool.

P.S. To those Atletico players who pushed him down several times on the field today, My family hates you all. 

5: Real Madrid players got to spread on the play ground well. That’s where Atletico was better. They were sharp and all over the place like grass hoppers.

6: GARETH BALE! I saw this guy making some real efforts on the play ground there. There were 209,594 tweets per minute after Gareth Bale made the goal and Real Madrid went up 2-1 ! That was spectacular and so sudden that we all screamed in union MADRIDDDDDDDDD!!!

7: I need Real Madrid T-shirt. Any soccer player interested in gifting me one, please drop a comment. No jokes.

 

That’s all for today from Khanum. I still need to learn alot about soccer. But I already know who’s my favorite from now on.

Bale who I called, Gale,  throughout the match. Lol

 

Hala Madrid !!  (My 1st ever post on soccer)I hope you enjoyed the recap

Shaukat Khan Continues to Inspire NCA Students

by Khanum

The wonderful world of Shaukat Khan is filled with Holiday cruising adventures, Awareness Campaigns and fantastic art works. He doesn’t just write travelogues telling interesting stories about every place he visits but also paints such fantastic things. Have a look at the picture below. This was painted by him during his Save The Disappearing Flora & fauna Of Rainforest campaign.

I admire his work, especially the one he put on Saatchi Online. Do check it out. There’s a painting by the name, Fantasy Butterfly. It’s so unique and colorful! Simply splendid work.

On Wednesday, He gave a marvelous presentation on Ship Cruising before leaving Pakistan. Did I mention he’s settled in UK?

The event started off with a slide show on Flora and Fauna campaign and then escalated with his presentation on Cruising Holidays. All the students just simply loved the idea of cruising  and pictures from all over the world that he been to on ship. Every eye was mesmerized, every student had his breath taken away. I was given the task to photograph the event but even I was so taken away with the presentation on a big screen that I stopped clicking my camera for awhile.

Here are some of the pictures from the presentation day.10396522_854766164551664_1279463371_n1 10405897_854765447885069_1143061343_n 10374274_854765861218361_1725397830_n1
