The Pretty Side Of Pakistan

This blog is all about the beauty Pakistan has. I have personally traveled almost everywhere on the Pakistan map except K2 – the largest peak in Pakistan and the 3rd highest in the world. I plan to go there soon insh Allah. So the first time ever i went to a trip to northern Pakistan was 2009. A group of friends who rented a Toyota 25 seater, left from Lahore at 12 midnight!

We first traveled to abbotabad and then took the karakoram highway which is one of the most highest and dangerous highways in the world! Our first stop was besham and then we moved on to chillas! this is a picture of the KKH (Karakoram Highway) i took myself at sunrise!

So after reaching at chillas we moved to Nanga Parbat base camp which is a mesmerizing place. when we got there, instantly i felt at peace. what a view it was. This is a picture i took myself of nanga parbat

After seeing this beautiful mountain and glacier we moved higher towards hunza valley which is almost 30 hours drive from Lahore! Let me tell you a fact about hunza which you would be surprised to hear is that hunza has a literacy rate of 99 percent! we stayed at the eagles nest hotel which is at the top of the valley, here is a picture of my view!

The last place i stopped was in the deosai plains which is towards Afghanistan. We drove by a whole range of mountains to find a beautiful lake which is one of the highest lakes in the world. It’s name is Shoeser lake and its my favourite place personally 🙂 Here’s a picture of the beauty!

I bet you didn’t know that these places existed in Pakistan, well now you do and you must travel across northern Pakistan at least once in your life. And for all those who think i’m lying about going to these places here is my picture at the lake! Cheers!

My life – Club Life

My name is Fawad Sheikh and i’m 21 years old. In these 21 years, i personally think that i have experienced so much in life that a man would experience normally in 40 years, except marriage off course – I like being single! This blog I’m writing is to share some things of my life with you. When i was 11 years old, i heard the first ‘Trance’ of my life. If you don’t know what trance is, it is a genre of music that is played by clubs now a days at a bpm (beats per minute) of 28-40. I loved this music, it made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. it intrigued me! life went on and my interest in ‘Electronic music’ grew during the years. One day i saw my friend’s picture on Facebook with a turntable and that was the moment i decided that i wanted to be a Disk Jockey. I started using a basic mixing software on my laptop to get started. in 2010, i went to Canada for one year to get my high school diploma from Toronto. I went there and got myself a Numark disk jockey turntable which was the first step i took towards this club life. Since then, I’ve been DJ-ing at private and public parties. And my greatest inspiration is the worlds most famous DJ – TIESTO! who’s concert i attended twice in my life till now.

Now people know me as ‘DJ Fad’ and i have a pioneer DDJ – S1. I have started producing my own music as well which is on sound cloud. Because i love my culture, i wanted to keep one of the most magical voices of Pakistan alive which is Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan so i remixed his tracks which are also there on my sound cloud profile.

I would like to conclude with the statement – ‘I get paid to PARTY’ and i’m living my dream!
