As this pigeon rushes...

The offer for the BBQ gathering... is still on... u can still refer to *ibu* or myself to confirm ur coming...So far a few have agreed to come...
insyaAllah.. june 14th eh? *u have got a date!*
:0)
This song by anuar zain is dedicated to my best buddy ever
n to the true meaning of love...
:0)
I had not been feeling like blogging eversince our keyboard went beserk...
Alhamdulillah.. today.. i bought a new keyboard..which is just the same color as the cpu casing...
black n grey metallic :0)
This pigeon has been on the run eversince my last entry... here n there...
but it was last thursday when i agreed to join in a breakfast at pinhan retaurant for a
poem recitation by this one lady... to be followed by hatice's class meeting afterwards...
when i went there....it was still quite empty...
the dome shape hall looks grand... i discovered.. parents (ladies) from a few different coskun schools were invited to listen to the poem recitation...
of course..to me.. it was more towards the open buffet breakfast! hahaha,
after all..we paid 20YTL for it per person!!
the ladies all hungry :0)

some of the bread etc..etc..

the eggs... mizver..etc..etc..

nd what did i eat???
Yup... a plate full! hahaha
and another!!

The ladies.. at our table..
Ayşenur's mom...
Nur Hatice's mom...
Furkan's grandma...
Ahmet Faluk's mom...
the ladies at the table i sat...
The lady who was to recite the poems...
when she entered the room... i noticed how beautiful her dress was...
geeeeeee..may i have ur dress?? heheh
When she started to read the poem...i thought she has a beautiful voice....
It was only then i discovered that she is actually a person who hosts a talk program in channel 7! she is actually a celebrity!
well... how was i to know eh? i rarely watch turkish tv programs!!
She only recited 2 poems actually...both beautiful indeed...
i have to admit that she is a good speaker...
her stories entertaining...
and towards the end of the program...
she asked for sponsors... as she aims to find sponsors to sponsor 500 students all over turkey...
it was on that day she asked for the people present to sponsor..
2 200YTL per student for a year...
and from the generousity of the ladies present...
a total of 190 students will be sponsored!!
MasyaAllah indeed coz.. u see..i was shocked when one person (who refused to be identified)
wanted to sponsor 100 students!!! that is 220 000YTL (is my math correct??)!!
I was totally impressed!!
Just imagine if the gathering included male...
i think they would have found more sponsors!
I am so proud to see how generous these people are...
How these sponsors will help students in need...
i also managed to snap a pose with the lady..
(i think her name is iqbal gürpınar)...
after the class meeting... i rushed to the kids' school... coz...
that day..the pre school students (that included my son) had ..
kite festival!!
dads especially came to join the festivals... a lot of moms too...:0)
some made their own kite...
i simply bought baddinz from the shop... it wouldnt fly! hahahah
and so.. one of baddin's best friends.. Hassan Serhat tried to make it fly...
rather unsuccessfull really...that in the end.. the kite was torn! hahahaha
and so what did baddin do?..
3 best friends... hasan serhat, baddin n bekir (bekir n hasan serhat didnt have a kite each)
decided to... ignore the festival and....

simply ran n chased each other!!
they didnt care about the kite! they were having great fun of their own!
hahahahahaha
kids eh?
i was tagged by D on 8 random facts about me....hmm... here goes...
1. My instinct speaks to me all the time... it is always right but i rarely listen to it!
2. I am really stubborn..(or else..i wouldnt be able to marry my beloved eh?)
3. Because i am stubborn.. i am sometimes selfish too...
4. If u pass by in front of me.. please say hi..coz walking alone... i wont see u as i will be lost in my thoughts...
5. I need my kiss n hug everyday... esp from my angels n my beloved...if i dont get them... i will be soo depressed...
6. I must have done something right in my life to deserve what i have now..Alhamdulillah..
7. I hate confrontation.. so please... dont fight with me...
8. When i feel bored... i deliberately drive my beloved mad (poor beloved!) hahaha
Yes... thatz me! i am not tagging anyone (sorry)...u can answer the tag if u want...
i am updating...but..i am also sorry that i may not be able to blog hopto everyone's blog.. or reply ur email as yet... things r hectic these days... dont forget me eh?

Thank You for hopping by. Hope to see you again soon... :0)

tak ada rezeki kita nak jumpa la yek akak kat bbq...

terima kasih atas jemputan tu..:0)

Alhamdulillah ..memang pemurah diaorang..tapi disebabkan diaorang ni ibu ibu kepada anak anak yg belajar kat sekolah persendirian..jadi memang normal la diaorang ni kaya gilaaa... kekadang 2 200 YTL tu utk depa mcm duit seringgit aja.. kkadang terlampau kaya... tapi Alhamdulillah depa tak kedekut.. .. :0)

Simah,

The 14th June date looks interesting. I have to make sure that I'm around first.

Btw, that is such a noble cause that Ms Iqbal is taking. May Allah bless her and those who willingly donate.

Dear Simah,

Salam from Manchester. Have been a silent reader of your blog for quite some time. Can relate to your 'driving your hubby mad when you are bored'. i have been doing the same thing as he is my best friend! And he is actually quite cute when he is annoyed.

i have been attending some poem recitations in the UK ..of course minus the lavish food that you had in Turkey.


Take care and keep writing
Salina
