Engr. Omar Vowda suggested that a lunch to be arranged by him at his office in Bath Island Clifton and a restricted number of friends to be invited due to shortage of space. We will not arrange anything unless a call is received from Hamidul Haque. Hamidul Haque called on Sunday night April 02, 2017.

We wanted to invite Engr. Abdul Wahab Siddiqui who is sick at the moment but when we call at his number we were told that he is not in a position to attend and is not feeling well from last few days.
The lunch was very delicious and we all enjoyed the food. Everybody was asking Seerajul Haque about his opinion on the food. He was enjoying it and finally he enjoyed the dessert which was great.
It was real nice to see Engr. Hamidul Haque after five years. Last I met him and his son in LA at their place. It refreshed my memory after meeting Seerajul Haque as he took me to Hollywood when I was in LA and also took me to lot of other places.
It was nice to talk to Seeraj as he attended a Pakistani wedding first time and he also mentioned that he is enjoying the Pakistani cuisine. He did enjoy the food Engr. Omar Vowda cooked for the party. Further Seeraj mentioned that their stay in Karachi is very short as they have a plan to visit Egypt, Jordon, Dubai on their way back to LA USA. Except Omar and me all the friends met Seeraj very first time.
