Survival in Rain - Karachi

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you get stuck in rain? If you thought of, not getting wet, then you're absolutely correct!

Tip #1 Never buy an umbrella. You will be the only awkward person using an umbrella. Instead carry two plastic bags. 1 small bag to carry your cell phone, wallets etc... and the other... to cover you up with so you can stay dry...

What do you do when the street in front of your house is filled with water. The city management is oblivious to this problem and doesn't come to the rescue. Your kids are all cooped up in the house and no where for them to play.

Tip #2 The kids are bugging you to play with them. Inflate some of the water tubes, floaties, & water lounge that you have saved for your summer vacation to the water parks and let the kids play in the standing water in the street. At lease they will be playing in front of your eyes.

To prevent people from getting electrocuted on a rainy day Karachi Electric Supply Company shuts down power. This lasts for weeks or even months sometimes. Most of the buildings need power to pump the water to the top of the buildings in order pump water into the individual home.

Tip #3 No power means no water? No problem! Just get a bar of soap and get your self all lathered up and get out in the rain. Free water from the heavens!

Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.

P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
