Kia’s Excee’d

Image
looks great, but how does it drive? Find out here…Kia’s Excee’d is a good looking car with an equally attractive seven-year warranty scheme and competitive pricing! If you want the proof that Kia is not merely knocking on the door of credibility, here it is. This new Excee’d is a stunning convertible version of the impressive Cee’d family hatchback, which shows that the ambitious Korean car maker has both feet planted firmly on the threshold of international success.More than that, the Excee’d is the first piece of Kia work from Audi TT designer Peter Schreyer. Quick to realise that the marque badly needs a ‘halo car’ if it is to become more than a maker of solid budget motors, the Excee’d is his answer to models such as Ford’s Focus Coupé Cabriolet. Much more than simply a Cee’d without a roof, the Excee’d uses the same chassis as the three-door Procee’d, which arrives later this year. Just like the Procee’d, the Excee’d has short overhangs which give it a purposeful stance. The nose ta…

PAKISTAN DAY

Image
Well, it’s Pakistan Day after all. We all should be glad that this day happened.

I think about the significance of this day, and the meaning it carries in our lives. Come on, for the most of my life it has been just another holiday – more so when I landed at university. This day is one of those holidays that the whole country observes.

This day is like a minor version of August 14. There are no jhandian, no flags fluttering on roof tops, no badges, stickers, paper caps, valiant men etc. Bus there is that parade at Constitution Avenue, Islamabad, in the morning that makes it sound something worthwhile; and ofcourse the Khabarnama with its reporting of the various medals held out by the President, and local constituents.

I am a Pakistani at heart. And I’ll remain that forever.Somehow. My father being an enthusiast the TV was on with full volume.

Butt this year federal government has announced to postpone Pakistan Day parade, to be held at Constitutional Avenue on March 23, said a statement.…

Chacha Cricket

Sufi Abdul Jalil, famous as Uncle Cricket or Chacha Cricket in Urdu - lives for the game and says he wants to die serving it.

"Cricket is my life, my passion. I can live without food, but I can't live without cricket. I pray that the situation in my country improves, so that cricket doesn't go away."

Attacks on the Sri Lankan team and match officials, which left eight Pakistanis dead and injured seven Sri Lankan players, have buried Pakistan's chances of hosting international cricket for some time.

Pakistan's March cricket tour of Bangladesh was postponed by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) while the International Cricket Council has raised doubts over whether the country can still co-host the 2011 World Cup.But Chacha Cricket is adamant things will improve soon.
