Life and People in London!

It already has been 5 months since I arrived in London but strangely I never thought about writing bits about the people here. So, let’s get on with it. Unlike most people in Pakistan, the majority or should I say almost every person is very patient. I have never came across a single person who showed signs of agitation, frustration or anger whether they be on road (driving) or in everyday life. Sure, there may have been exceptions but I guess I can’t stick with 62 million people every hour of the day. Apparently, there was this one time when I was in student centre in my university and I had to visit the centre for 2-3 times because I kept missing documents needed for my ID card. On my 4th visit, I seemed to have frustrated two girls standing at the entrance for God knows what purpose. If the purpose was to greet the students, clearly, they failed miserably.

Anyways, when it comes to driving, everyone follows the rules and stick and stay where they are supposed to be. Unlike Paki’s, they give way to others without making an arse out of themselves even if the other person is doing something… bizarre. People here are extremely helpful and friendly. I have yet to encounter any incident that involves ‘racism’. But chances are slim not that I care or anything. Though something tells me it’ll be awful as fuck. The best bit is everything goes according to your plan. If they say a document will be ready in 2 days. It will be ready in 2 days. I am getting accustomed to how things work here. It’s pleasant and fast. Transportation is relaxed, well other than in peak hours. I have not travelled on buses so can’t comment on that.

Ohh, and we have adequate electricity here. Laters!

Free for another post!

Hey guys, been busy so cudnt bounce back. Anyways, I just got my first assignment back (did I tell u im a graduate student doing Energy and Environment?) and I was very glad with the result (72%) although the marks were little less than I was expecting considering the effort of one and a half month that gone into completing it. Well, guess I’ll ask my professor when he gets back. No biggie :-). My focus now has shifted onto the second task in hand. That is, to what extent the energy security consistent with the carbon emission reduction? Well, its proving to be rather difficult for me atm since I cant seem to find the starting line. Been brainstorming for few days now. I guess, I’ll start writing it to see where it leads and how I could handle it later on. But for now, I have asked my friends for a get together in City library so that we could discuss it.

Do pray for my success. I hope and wish for a better future for all of us. Later.

Tomb Raider 2011 Reboot Screenshots!

By the looks of the screenshots the game really does look epic. It feels as if Lara will struggle for her life coupled with a paranormal aura of the area and classic graphics. The game looks promising.
