Guess what’s the latest in spa pampering? Fish Pedicures!!!

Would you ever put your foot in to a fish bowl and let the fish nibble on your toes and skin?

The sensible answer to this, one might wonder, would be NO but hold up; fish pedicure is the most recent addition to spa treatments and is gaining massive popularity! No this is no joke. I’m serious! Dead serious!

What a unique alternative to the razors used for scraping away dead skin is this! And the way it works is simple. You put your foot in the water and the little fish called garra rufa aka Doctor Fish get to work. They nibble on the dead skin, cleaning it all away as that is their food source so to speak. Do they bite? Not at all. They got no teeth you see so its perfectly safe and all who have tried it have loved it stating the experience to be slightly ticklish.

Wonder if this would come over to Pakistan!

Health & Diet! Common Questions Answered Here

Follow these instructions and you will NEVER have to worry about the future again!

Q: I’ve heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life; is this true?

A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that’s it… don’t waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that’s like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.


Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?

A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these?  Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.


Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?

A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!


Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?

A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.


Q: Aren’t fried foods bad for you?

A: YOU’RE NOT LISTENING!!! … Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they’re permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?


Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?

A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.


Q: Is chocolate bad for me?

A: Are you crazy? HELLO Cocoa beans! Another vegetable!!! It’s the best feel-good food around!


Q: Is swimming good for your figure?

A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.


Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?

A: Hey! ‘Round’ is a shape!

You might never taste chocolate in the same light after savoring an Alison Nelson Chocolate Bar, a chain of gourmet cocoa emporiums!

Make way for the utterly fashionable trend in the luxurious chocolate market today for Alison Nelson is coming to town!

The venture is being set up in India and Pakistan thanks to a partnership with Dubai based HFK General Trading.

The Alison Nelson chocolate bar is an amazing brand and a unique concept that offers no only a chocolate cafe, but also a fresh, vibrant blend of fashion and art, which is exactly what our customer is looking for. I am sure it is going to be an unprecedented success.

Hassan Khan, CEO: HFK General Trading

Known for its cocoa and unusual flavor combinations such as ‘salty pretzel’ and ‘malted milk’, Chocolate Bar employs an artful approach, using graffiti-influenced chocolate-bar wrappers designed by iconic New York-based artists.

Consumers will join Chocolate Bar’s A-list fans such as celebrity Sarah Jessica Parker, Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Roberts, Scarlett Johanson, Leonardo DiCaprio and Uma Thurman, who all rave about the presentation and most of all the adventurous flavor combinations: Nelson’s boutiques prove that the
world’s favorite sweet goes with everything: at the sleek outlet in New York’s upscale Henri Bendel store, a typical sandwich is made from a melted dark 72% chocolate bar dabbed with olive oil and sea salt. Gourmet chocolate from high-quality cocoa beans can be eaten, drunk, or even used in the
store’s own line of cocoa-based beauty products.


So will the new trend in the chocolate market jolt already present icons like Patchi and the Chocolate Fondue Fountain in Karachi?

Only time will tell!

Blackberries: even a 3-yr old can operate them!!!

From Yahoo News

Three year old Madelyn Eaves was able to get rescuers to her mother with the help of a little song and her mother’s BlackBerry.

Jessica Eaves taught the song “911 green” to her daughter in case of emergencies. When she collapsed from a condition called vasovogal syncope, Madelyn dialed 911 and hit the green call button, then was able to direct dispatchers to the house using descriptions of her surroundings. The year before, Madelyn had gotten help with another little song, “green green green.” When Jessica collapsed, Madelyn repeated the steps, which called the last person Jessica had dialed and allowed them to get help.

It’s certainly nice to know BlackBerries are so easy to use, and a very ingenious idea from a dedicated mother.
