Food, friends, fun and fabulous prizes, these were the by-words at the Eid Milan Lunch organized by on October 19, 2014.

The event was announced a month in advance and like all events and get-togethers organized by’s FB group, spots filled up fast. Last time was a halwa puri breakfast event and all guests had enjoyed it to the max. This time the fare was traditional desi again, at Karachi Kitchen’s Meadowvale location. Ladies, dressed in their finest Eid clothing started coming in at around 2 and soon the premises were full with just guests, so much so that the management had to turn away other dine-in customers after a while!


As always, we also had some fabulous prizes to be given away through a raffle draw.

Hina Syed gave away a ‘Body  by Vi’ gift hamper to Samreen Sheikh.

Nazia Asad had sponsored two gifts, a lip gloss and a pack of multivitamins for kids. Shazia Kazmi and Asma Zaman walked away with these.
