Speaking of  Karachi weather, the bleak of the coldness here is increasing day by day. May Allah bless us. We human can't survive the very cold and very hot temp. Now the question is what to do in that situation. Start heater, wear gloves, sweeter, sock and whatever you found in your old winter bag. Whether you are at home or not cover yourself properly, this is what I do. And one important thing I'm going to share today, my mom's winter tea. When you sip it, your all shiver will decrease to almost good height. It is such warm treat for winter night. You'll feel that it is better than regular tea or coffee.
