Links and wishes

I cant believe it. İt was that long since i got my article published... the last one was 8th of April. and is already september!! Well.. of course i didnt write during summer... thatz 3 months out...anyway... if u wanna read my mumbling about

Iskender is the kebab i seek
Ramazan in İstanbul...

feel free to hop to...

for the full text n link of the articles...i have almost forgotten about the iskender article coz i wrote it wayyyyy back in february.i thought they had trashed it up...Anyway... they printed both articles this on thursday n one on saturday (today) much to my suprise..

Franky speaking, eversince baba died... i really dont feel like mumbling in today's Zaman (local english newspaper). i started writing then coz i wanted to cheer baba's up.. anyway... my beloved kept bugging me to occasionally i guess i will write a piece or two.....

Next week will be truly hectic.......and i am planning to concentrate on the kids' blogs since i have a lot of things i need to update......i have also added in pictures of our stay in Malaysia in both hatice and baddinz blogs..each blog concentrating on the owner... u may wanna go n take a peep....

This eid mubarak... there will be a week of school holiday. i suppose many istanbulites will disappear to holiday destinations... my beloved contrastively have decided to stay here since this will be the first time after we got married that we will be able to visit relatives properly. Previously, we always sit house at baba's place entertaining the non stop guests who used to come and visit baba for the first 2 days of bayram(eid).....This will definitely a bit empty without our annual activity..still..we have to move forward eh?

I will start updating this blog on the bayram (eid) day itself......

From Simah, Halil, Hatice and Baddin...
to all the muslims all over the world...

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

Salam Simah...

Love your writings! Sad to read about fellow muslims openly display disrespect for the month of Ramadhan. I read in Mdm Tai-Tai something similar in Dhaka too.

And that Iskender kebab...goshhh.. nak kena korek gambar2 kat Istanbul dulu la, I thot I did eat in one of them ...ohhhh....memang menjilat jari! Hehehe...

Salam to your hubby & kids ya?
