Yello Magazine


A Hoarding Caught my attention "yello indispensable guide to Karachi" which i first thought its Derived form of Yellow Pages and related to it, Still checked the site and my assumption was wrong it was Magazine about karachi life hang out , eating out , about culture, fashion, entertainment and visual arts , which was quite unique for me to have such sort of magazine i might be wrong because i haven't seen any other magazine which covers all of it in one.

So went out buying and couldn't find it on normal hawkers and let me share a funny incident i went at many newspaper/magazine stalls asked for Yello magazine and the Guy started showing me YELLOW Color Magazine
showed me Spider and some Ladies Magazine i was like wtf i am asking for yello magazine not yellow color magazine
so in the end couldn't find at newspaper stall so had to reach at Book Store Near Time Medicos And Found it Easily there.

The Magazine was designed pretty Nicely with Karachi Buses Artwork on the Front cover it was a nice local feel to it
and the pages inside it was beautifully formatted and design surely looks like a International standard work on it

Let me tell you now about the content of it I went to read some which was quite interesting about the Karachi places which you might not have explored yourself they introduced you the unseen places some old ones, some Great eating out places like Best Fish in town from Expensive place to local thaila walas




then there was a article about Dive-in Karachi really liked it didn't know it before that there is some place for underwater diving and seeing the beautiful world of it, It was Nicely written about snorkeling and where to do it which companies offering there services, This was something different and fascinating to know about the place later on i checked youtube videos of that place called CHARNA ISLAND and really made me to visit that place



"Snorkeling, a close cousin of scuba diving, has recently started gaining popularity amongst Karachiites. This simple and fun activity can be enjoyed individually or in a group by people of all ages. To snorkel, the only requirement is to be comfortable in water while breathing through a reed-like tube poking out of the water."

They also covered an Artist and his work he creates Marvel Action Figures
the magazine has to offer a lot to read and Surely a Guide to Karachi, Now i am eagerly Waiting for the Next month issue and going to Subscribe for it

The Yearly Subscription costs 900Rs + A Food Voucher of Bag n Bagel worth rs 300
and A Single Magazine issue Costs 95

well i am not a very well blogger but this magazine made me to write about it i hope you guys didn't get bore by it i would recommend the magazine to all Karachite who likes to know about interesting places , likes to Go Out and like to know new dining places
