I don’t have a smelly shirt to give to you. I am not someone who you will miss for. hehe hehe hehe. Don’t get angry. I am just kidding.

Notes2

Thank you Rani for your kind hospitality since my stay in here. Thank you and see you on this November. Bye.

 Kak Jena left this note next to my boyfriend’s shirt today.

Kak Jena is my ex-staff when I worked in Bernama TV (a local 24 hours TV station) on 2009.

She’s old women but her heart is young.

We can talk about many things. She’s too funny, talkative and sporting :) . I miss her so much.

IN TURKiYE 2

My second day in Turkey was my “meeting day” with my boyfriend’s parent. It took 1 hour from Kozan to Ceyhan.

I laughed in my heart when I saw it first time. So cute :) There were many sizes – big, medium, small and too small.

Turkish breakfast style:

Tomatoes + cucumbers + salt, sucuk  (like sausage) + egg, kaymak cream, olive, chocolate, banana, bread & Turkish tea

I don’t know what to call it. But I think it’s a tea stove :D

Good morning Istanbul! I thought it was too cold but it was little cold.

I thought these are the main course. No! It was appetizer. Big appetizer for me. I love the tomatoes salad so much.

THE GIFTS THAT MADE MY DAY

Gifts from Kozan, Adana

Which one I like?

My boyfriend knows I love Pistachio.

He sometimes called me Pistachio :)

The black tea now become my favorite tea.

I asked my boyfriend to send one box for my birthday and here it is.

Those two books are books for learning Turkish.

They are good book but quite tough, I think so.

The long sleeve shirt bought in LC Waikiki, the boutique where my boyfriend love to buy.

The birthday card is the “love” one. It’s simple but unique.

I love everything that he sent to me.

Thank you so much my most generous and romantic boyfriend.

Left and right side already taken by my boyfriend and I. What about the middle one? Only Allah knows it

TWIN BANANA

twin banana

I found this twin banana in Mydin Mall. There were two bananas in one skin? 

Twin fruits and veggies are not ‘mutated’ and they are perfectly safe to eat.

Anyone who has a garden can tell you they taste exactly the same.

They pretty much are just like conjoined mammal twins, just the plant version.

So take a picture and eat it or make banana bread! :)
