Your wealth is where your friends are. PLAUTUS I’m so blessed and lucky to meet prominent people in Pakistan and have them in my life.

My cousin-in-law, AZFAR ALI, TV Director and Artist, used to visit us at home like our family member.
Last but not the least, the beautiful Philippine Consular Attache’ of Islamabad, Pakistan, REA QUIMIO.
Wealth makes a great number of friends, but the poor man is parted from his friend. (Excerpt) I beg to disagree. Not in all cases… I’m rich in true friends but not in material things. As far as I’m concerned, if people change because of acquired wealth, power or influence, that means they were shallow to begin with. True friends know where they come from and act with more humility in such circumstances.
I will always cherish our friendship…
