Good morning,*|MERGE1|* 

Fuel prices increased last week, and all I can think about these days are the ways to control my fuel consumption. By getting on a bicycle, you will not only save your money but help the planet too. However, if you are a woman then good luck with all the cat calling you will have to face, unless you are a foreigner visiting Pakistan. Sadly, Pakistan’s public transportation system is not up tp the mark but if you have the option of using it, do it. Car parking kay malse se bhi jaan chot jae gi. The idea which I like the most is car polling. Recruit some coworkers and try car pooling. Paise bhi bachein ge aur workplace gossip kay lie baar baar cigarette break bhi nahi leni pare ga. Otherwise, lock yourself up in your room and only watch Pakistani content..aahh the Pakistani content Actor Adnan Siddiqui wants all of us to watch. Talking about Pakistani content, have you seen the clip from Pakistani drama Kaise teri Khud Garzi? That went viral on social media? What is the story line? Why are they romanticizing a man abusing a woman? What’s so romantic about non-consensual intimacy? I hope we learn to show romance in a non-problematic way. These kind of dramas are big No for me but I’m  eagerly waiting for one Pakistani drama: season two of Midsummer Chaos. The writer shared the news of the upcoming second season in a tweet. The drama serial got a lot of attention last year, with most people making fun of the the actors. But I think it was a great attempt by a young filmmaker. At least, they tried to portray sensitive issues in a sensible manner, which is far better than showing abusive men getting turned on by listening to their name. How can I forgot to mention Joyland? The movie  won the Jury Prize in the “Un Certain Regard” at Cannes, which is a first for not only Pakistan but for the sub-continent also. It has made us all proud. Noor had a conversation with the team of Joyland, and Uzair and I discussed the best look at Cannes.  And last week, Ashar went to try food from ‘De Meal,’ and he loved the food. 

Have a good day! In the meantime, I hope the government announces a four day work week.

This week our former PM, Imran Khan wants elections in six days or he will come back to do a dharna in Islamabad. Our Prime Minister made his first address to the nation and announced a relief package. Anchor Shahzeb Khanzada said that Khan’s march to Islamabad, which happened earlier last week and was bombarded with tear gas and shelling, wasn’t successful because people just didn’t show up. And according to the anchor, some PTI leaders are saying it’s because Khan didn’t give them enough time to prepare for the dharna. Also, a leaked Malik Riaz audio, speaking with PPP’s Zardari made it to TV screens. Riaz is telling Zardari that Khan wants to make up with Zardari. Zardari says no chance bro. So, the game is definitely on. The coming week, Khan’s six day deadline will expire on Wednesday. Let’s see what Khan will do next.
What inflation? I find it amusing how Pakistani consumers grumble about skyrocketing vehicle prices while continuing to purchase top-end vehicles they fancy. 

In case you missed it, Honda Atlas Cars Limited made a profit after tax of Rs2.50 billion in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2022 (FY2022), compared to a profit of Rs1.79 billion in the same period last year. This represents a 40 per cent increase over the previous year.
Let’s talk Apple! iPhones have once again become the best-selling smartphones globally in the first quarter of 2022. The iPhone 13 was the most popular smartphone in Q1 2022, followed by the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max listed in the top five.

This comes as a surprise since I wasn’t expecting Apple to report such impressive sales figures considering their hefty prices.

There are no Samsung flagships among the top five, but the company’s budget phones have risen to the top. The Samsung Galaxy A32 was ranked fifth, while the Galaxy A12 was ranked third in the world.
