A Little Frivolousness … Nonsense … & Gobbledygook … 😊

December 27, 2020

As we end this terrible year, I had nothing positive to contribute so stayed silent for last two weeks.

Then, in this last week, a family medical condition made us visit the Aga Khan Hospital

and … hello … BRAINWAVE!

We all hear of various rankings- The top five sports cars in the world

                                                            The top Brunches in the city

                                                            The top Beauty Salons for dogs & cats … (😊)

Well, I would easily place Aga Khan’s food as the TOP HOSPITAL (I repeat- HOSPITAL) FOOD TO EAT 😊😊😊 in Karachi.

While my cousin took the red-eye shift to be with our aunt, my wife took the afternoon shift … I took the am shift, selfishly motivated with the opportunity for their breakfast!  Incidentally, I only took the breakfast on the first day.

On day two, I went to the cafeteria for a mixed tea and their walnut cake, both items are “to die for”! (Talk about ‘hospital’ irony 😊).

(Fruit cake & Walnut cake)

On day 3, I had their mixed tea and their croissant – so, okay, I’ve had better Croissants but this one wasn’t bad.

Mind you, go to the cafeteria for the mixed tea- it’s much better than the room service one.

Day 4 saw me pick up their mixed tea and Muffin- not too bad.

So, friends, whenever you have a get-together, afternoon tea, maybe even an anniversary, consider the Aga Khan cafeteria – I certainly have on multiple occasions (even one on our 10th anniversary) but my entire family turned against me … WHAT NERVE!!! (So much for surprising my wife 😊)

I joked with my nieces that on anyone’s next birthday, pick up the walnut cake from Aga Khan 😊, which didn’t get me the funny reaction I expected!

I wonder, does this critique make me a “food connoisseur”? 😊😊😊😊😊

With this most frivolous of blogs 😊, wishing you all a very happy & healthy 2021 – may the coming year be much much kinder with humankind (in spite of mankind being very cruel with nature).
