So the story goes like this: you get your hair done for a special occasion, your hairdresser teases the hell out of it, and, as a result, your hair looks fabulous.

Why Do the “Karachiite-type” Men Fall For Punjabi Women?
Ah, what an appropriate post to reblog on MyBigFatPakistaniWedding, as I’m just another Punjabi girl that an Urdu-speaking boy fell for, lol 😛 Favourite line of Chaidaani’s post about the awesomeness of Punjabi girls: “She will understand the cliche that the way to his heart is through his tummy, simply because hey, the way to HER heart is also through her tummy.” Amen, sister, amen!
I begin with the disclaimer that this blog is not for 3 kinds of people:
1. Those who have an issue with the sweeping generalizations I am about to make in the spirit of fun, though parts will be definitely based on truth and years of research-based observation.

3. Punjabi women who, well, have ended up with the “non-Karachiite-type” thaith, purely Punjoo men.
Ok so it just me or do you see it all around you? Out of the inter-provincial, inter-cultural marriages, engagements and other stuff, as a Karachiite I have always seen non-Punjabi men falling for Punjabi women…
