#SayItWithASmile to be a millionaire

Lays Pakistan has always been my favorite when it comes to engaging campaigns and innovative ideas to get customers hooked to the product apart from the taste of it. I bet you can’t eat one is the most apt tagline when you think about lays. Lays as a brand has grown with millennials and catered to their approach in unique style. From engaging Messi and Wasim Bhai TVC to last year’s Lays #PassASmile fever with so many cash giveaways, the brand is definitely a consumer favorite. 

Good news is that they’re back this season with another quite engaging campaign called #SayItWithASmile. Watch the latest TVC of lays Pakistan featuring none other than Shahid Afridi who grabbed some lays to spread smiles. 

There are times when we all want to smile in a different way. Like when you’re watching movies with close friends or siblings and there’s a horror scene during which you want to terrify your most darpook sibling, you’ll need a vampire smile. Hehehe. I am so sure she/he’ll be hell scared but will also enjoy the smile. It is kinda new Bhaoo lol.

#GiveBack a precious memory to your mom this mothers day

Every year just when Mother’s day is around the corner, you’ll find so many tempting deals and discounts. However, the best presents has to be the personalized ones rather than buying something on discounts. You/your mom will cherish a personalized gift for a long time. 

Mother’s Day this year falls on 14th May which means it is high time to get something for Mom. While on Facebook I’ve stumbled upon TCS Sentiments contest post with a touching line that says, “It’s time to #GiveBack the things that she gave up for you”. I was so touched that I can’t stop myself checking out what TCS sentiments is offering. It is all about the connect a brand makes with you.

Chosen from hundreds of nominees, Nasir’s dedication to serving citizens and carrying out his duties honestly has earned him the respect of his colleagues, superiors and most importantly- Pakistani citizens.

Siraj ul Haq, the Chief of Jamaat-e-Islami, applauded the efforts of Accountability Lab by stating,

“Integrity Idol is a one of its kind contest which will help bring transparency and integrity to the public sector and ensure good governance across our country.” He congratulated all five nominees and this year’s winner saying: “these Integrity Idols are role-models for all of us.”

Rai Manzoor Hussain Nasir has become well-known for giving his personal mobile phone number to citizens so that they can call him at any time if they face problems; for creating a sense of community among his staff; and for making sure every rupee of public money is spent in a transparent way. Nasir added: “Satisfaction comes from serving people…the respect of every human being comes first. This prize means everything to me because it comes from the Pakistani people. My message to young people in this country is to join the civil service and serve with honesty- you will win respect”.

Now a global initiative, Integrity Idol began in Nepal as a way to recognize and inspire upstanding government officials three years ago. The four other finalists in the 2016 competition in Pakistan included Farukh Attique, Deputy Commissioner of Mastung, Balochistan; Meher Un Nisa, the Media Coordinator for the Planning and Development Department of Sindh; Fida Hussain, a lab assistant in the government post graduate college in Mardan; and Imtiaz Khan Khichi, Assistant Commissioner of Depalpur. The nomination process for Pakistan’s 2017 Integrity Idol will open next week.

“We saw incredible energy today from the people of Pakistan who have truly shown that they support and want to celebrate honest leaders,” noted Brig ® Musaddiq Abbasi, Chairman Board of the Accountability Lab Pakistan. “I encourage everyone in Pakistan to join us in this effort to ‘name and fame’ those who uphold the Pakistani values of honesty, integrity and accountability.”

Malls are the new age family hangout places. Mums can shop for groceries while dad can go find perfect pair of shoes & you can get your hands on makeup & accessories followed by a casual hangout in the food court. A perfect day out from our busy life. 

Dolmen Malls have become the most happening places of Karachi & considered shoppers paradise. They are the hub of seasonal & festive celebrations throughout the year. Dolmen shopping festival has also become an yearly ritual as the grandest of year end sales. Dolmen Mall Clifton is my favorite place to be at during such celebrations.
