Cheeni Thoughts

I was born and raised in Pakistan. Before , after and during  my Masters in Marketing from London , I had started working. By the time I turned 25, I had worked in 3 continents of the world: Asia, Europe and North America.

I am a daughter, sister, advertising professional, masters in marketing, avid fashionista, devoted foodie, graduate in economics and finance, certified personal shopper and fashion stylist, self-proclaimed poet, curious traveler, music buff, friend and one of the most random and memorable person you would ever meet.

As a child, I wanted to be a pilot, doctor, scientist, actress, air hostess until my father said that my aim should be to become a good human being and that’s exactly what I am striving to be.

Hello, I am Cheeni (which literally means sugar in Urdu) and I am here to share my thoughts and experiences about anything and everything! From Cheeni Thoughts and Beyond…

Welcome to Cheeni Thoughts – A Lifestyle Blog!

  1. “my father said that my aim should be to become a good human being” — that’s one of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever heard! Your father is very wise. Looking forward to reading your blog, Cheeni! Take care and God bless! 🙂

  2. Hi Cheeni and thanks for following me. I’m new to blogging and really appreciate you taking the time to swing by. You sound like you have had an interesting life!

  3. Cheeni –

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and following it. I hope the quotes inspire you as you go through your daily life of being a “daughter, sister, advertising professional, masters in marketing, avid fashionista, devoted foodie, graduate in economics and finance, certified personal shopper and fashion stylist, self-proclaimed poet, curious traveler, music buff, friend and … random and memorable person.” Your blog is very interesting and I look forward to seeming future posts.

  4. Your father is a wise man. It is not always an easy thing to do the right thing, even if we are clear about what it is. Very often the RIGHT thing to do is the HARD thing. Thanks for subscribing to KPKworld. I treasure my readers in pakistan, as direct dialogue between our peoples could only bode well for the future.

  13. “my father said that my aim should be to become a good human being and that’s exactly what I am striving to be.”

    That’s fantastic! And so important! Your father is very wise. Love the fact that you have traveled a lot around the world. Nice to meet : ) Thanks for following my blog.

    • Hello Cyril! fashion is a part of my blog and sometimes i take photos of what i am wearing or things i spot and at other times i share what i love from this big world of internet 🙂

  14. Cheeni,

  16. Wow! Cheeni….You have a fascinating profile 🙂 sounds like you enjoy life! Thank you for stopping by my blog, and deciding to follow me on my journey! I consider it an honor to have you follow along! I hope you have a great day!

  17. Nice to “meet” you! Looking forward to exploring here further and want to thank you for following my blog as well. If you enjoy travel, you might enjoy my India Journal Blog…stories from my yearly sojourns in India, photos etc. where I post daily when I am in India (which sadly is not until October this year!) Thanks again
    with love light and JOY
    Jane 🙂

    • I try my best to bring my best side out…sometimes i succeed 😛
      thank you!!!! i am so honoured and happy to recieve such lovely compliments from you Paula!


  18. I like what you said about career aspirations. I think we sometimes limit ourselves by focusing on a career role that we want to define ourselves as. Your dad’s advice to focus on being a good person is great advice. A career is something we do, but a good person is what we can be. I like the difference of focus implied by saying either “this is what I do” or “this is what I am.” Cool thought,and sounds like you have a lot of experience to write from. Great for blogging!

  19. Fascinating. I was a Social Science and Secondary Education Major in College, Have a Master of Divinity, and Master of Science in Education, Specializing in Human Services Counseling. Good blog!

  20. Thank you for visiting poetrycottage, your like and for following. Like your poetry and love the impact of the pink wall at the start of your blog … straight away one is left wondering what treasures are behind it.

  33. Hi Cheeni, thank you for following my blog. How funny, I am also an advertising professional, certified personal stylist and many other things in between. When people ask me what I do I say ‘Jack of all trades!’ – seems fitting. Glad to see there are more like me 😉

  34. You are a mutt like me. We like so many things at once but can’t settle on one. I have an MBA in Finance. But I love Marketing. I love handbags and fashion. And now I’m an author of paranormal mystery. This makes us unique. I hope.

  35. Hi Cheeni!
    Thanks for following. I’m a happy camper now you are joining me as I trip around by RV, plane, car and time machine to the past.
    Comments, compliments, critiques and wisecracks are most welcome.
    You have a great blog. “See” you again soon.
