Club Dhaka first e-club of the city
Expressing life through keyboards, to connect thoughts through cables these have been the motto of this tiny Bangladeshi club on Internet.
Starting its journey back in March 2003 Club Dhaka has become one of the trendiest and "exclusive" kind of club in MSN groups for all Bangalis living all over the world. Whether you want to talk about newest movies, or a song in an album, or the recipe you just discovered or even about life, love and relations, advice you can share it all with its growing members.
Current member count is around 400 and it is believe that there will be more soon, because of the effort the manager and the assistant managers have put behind the community. Being only 21, M Saquib Hussain (known as Highbred_Jammer), founder and Manager of Club Dhaka, has been bringing all sorts of ideas in the club. As he explained "I wanted a community that can speak freely, because that's all Club Dhaka was all about, to express you, to make a difference…" This is not just another club where you come to make a few new friends and then that's it. Club Dhaka wants people to express anything they want and almost all kind of thoughts are posted. The message board is full of many interesting ideas, stories, comments, reviews and much other substance. Best of all, Club Dhaka doesn't ask for any sort of charge when you need to join. The environment of the club is also different than casual style that people experience in MIRC or other local chat rooms.
Here ideas are expressed (commonly by members in the message board) and it is discussed by many people all over the country. The administrator also have done a great job to keep spam away… being a member you are assured that only the 100% spam free contents are sent to your mailbox. Saquib also explained, "It is the goal of our club to ensure every member experiences his or her membership to its fullest potential. We could not and would not do it without them…" Club Dhaka is for people of all age - starting from a regular teenager to a homemaker because they all share everything in common.

Diary of a Food Obsessed Person By Sam Q
Sam Q (as you all know by now)
Another day starts, Well… let's not kid oneself, another grueling day starts for me. With this massive weight resting on my poor knees, the workout sessions are not something I look forward to. Anyway did my forty minute of low intensity cardio whatever with Jane Fonda. While exercising, all I could think of how horsey Jane Fonda was looking and how lucky I was to have a decent face (if I say so myself) and (so what) a blimp for a body.
I have a choice! I can, if I want to have a decent body to match my decent face, whereas, poor Jane is stuck being horsey, or should I say... stud (gender change). She does look kinda manly.
Well anybody can figure out the above statements are all horses s##t. The skinny me is desperately trying to come out of the fat me, so that is why I am resorting to the ultimate... being mean.
I need to lose forty-kg. Hey! Some how I hear laughter. Hold your horses man, I will get there. And when I do, you all will get on the band wagon and go ride off to the sunset and wish you never met me. By the way, why am I so hung up on horses today? You know, horsey... stud... Horse s**t, bandwagon. I must have been watching too many westerns on my DVD player.
Comment of the day: My mum telling me in a very matter of-fact voice, "Beta, you are the fattest in your circle of friends and I am the fattest in my circle of friends. What a friendly observation. "Whoopee!" Rain dance coming up. Thanks Ma. That's what mums are for, to be supportive in every pound of my life.
recipe for the day:
