Familia in Town!

Hello lovely people, I know I have done a disappearing act from the blog this month. But if you knew how many things I am juggling in life these days, you would totally understand. My parents are visiting us in Melbourne from Pakistan and most of my time is occupied arround them. They are only…

Beaching at the Brighton

I was craving for a trip to the ocean this weekend. To walk along the coast, feel the coarse sand between my toes, hear the waves roar and crash, watch the kids make sand castles and dip their toes (and head in Hamza’s case) in the water. Salt air was calling. So, on Saturday, after…

Life in the city :: Arcades edition

Funny story: today on my way back to the apartment from one of our strolls around the city, I was stopped by a middle aged local woman, who was apparently lost and asked me for directions to the Flinders Station. ME. Who is always pushing the stroller with one hand and catching up on google…

We rode the Puffing Billy!

This time from Southbank which is Melbourne’s bustling waterfront hub, renowned for restaurants, public art and stylish retailers.

Exploring Melbourne :: Part II

Going to share our next batch of photos from Melbourne. One thing that I wanna put down here before my Mommy brain loses it forever is how loving, friendly and welcoming locals were to our kids. First couple of days, i got many stares hauling the double stroller on the streets and once i started…

Off to Melbourne we went … !!

Hello friends! So excited and finally somewhat ready to share about the trip that our family took last month. We were originally planning to go to a different country but we had to change plans at the last minute and fly instead to Melbourne, Australia. We didn’t need a visa since we are residents there,…
