Finally, after three years of planning, we went and got the darned picture taken! 20 out of 21 original “gang” members were present. Harris was missing; Jerry came to Lahore especially for the picture. Some background – when we were all freshmen, we wanted to get a “formal” studio picture taken together. Something to remember our days together by. Finally it happened tonight. The whole night involved a lot of waiting at the main gate, calling everyone so they would hurry up, struggling to fit everyone into the cars, deciding how everyone was going to stand in the picture, making sure everyone was happy with where they stood, deciding how many pictures to take, deciding where to go for dinner, who was going to sit at what table, who was going to get home how. Sounds like fun doesn’t it 😀

I should say that three years have made me used to all the noise, chaos, whining, screaming, bitching, and yelling. It hasn’t. Usually in the middle of the dinner I feel like getting up and just walking out, and I’m sure everyone else does too. But sometimes the whole fun is in being able to make it through it all, coming back to LUMS, gathering at the gate one last time, and going to the dorms. I hate to think that at the end of this year most of my friends will leave LUMS, I might never meet some of them again. And that’s what makes me go to all the dinners we’ve had so far, follow through on all the plans we’ve made. I don’t want to regret not having spent enough time with these hooligans, I know I’ll miss each one when they’re gone.

Anyway, Sameera took a LOT of pictures. I narrowed them down to these interesting ones.

This was taken after we got to the studio and everyone crammed into this one room with a mirror. And Jerry (in white) was trying to get everyone out so we could get started.

After the picture was taken, standing right outside the studio. Naureen, Saif and Ammar’s face 😀

Have no idea who took this, when and why. But it’s a good picture of Ammar and Ambreen and someone’s hand.

Saif. He looks like Bond. Or so he thinks.
Naureen’s hand.

This is a picture of the salt shaker, the person holding it is me 😀

Asad and Abeer. Asad’s eyes are open in this picture. That’s a rarity.

Rabea looking down from above. We were waiting to be seated and these guys got the table first.

The cutest kid ever. She fell in love with Ammar, and then the parents complained about us the HobNob’s management (apparently we were making a lot of noise) and left.
Naureen, Nida, Asad, Ambreen and Abeer. Asad’s eyes are closed, just as he said as soon as Sam took the picture.

Saif. I really like this picture. He looks like himself.
