How I Survived Scary Murree Snow Experience [Pakistan Jan 2022]

A terrifying icy near-miss story from my friend in Islamabad right now

Tragically over 20 people died last week while caught in a snowstorm in a holiday mountain resort of Murree in Pakistan last week. Our condolences and thoughts with the loved ones of those lost. My good friend Reza Adil, is holidaying in Islamabad, and actually tried to reach Murree shortly before the worst happened, not realising the disaster that was to unfold. Thankfully he never made it, but not without a terrifying experience for himself and his family members too, on the treacherous icy roads of a barrier-less narrow winding mountain road. Listen to his full story in this video podcast, originally recorded on my Instagram live.

EV Roadtrip! 220 miles in an Electric Car [MG ZS EV]

Real world test to see what it’s like to take an electric vehicle on a longer drive

Yesterday I had to make a work trip that involved a round-trip of over 220 miles. The car I used was a brand new MG ZS EV electric car press vehicle I’ve got for review (stay tuned for that at the later date) with a stated range of 163 miles. So how was this EV roadtrip?

I got COVID-19

No, God no! How can pizza taste so horrid?

We leave letters lying on the floor mat for a couple of days before touching them. Coming back from shopping involves up to an hour of anti-bac wiping and washing, right down to the last piece of fruit and vegetable. Outside: face masks on, sanitisers on standby, and proximity alert wound up to maximum – ‘hey, back off buddy!’ shouts my imaginary proxy self upon infringement, deliberate or otherwise, of my immediate two-metre surround space.
