Project 366 2020 – WEEK 22

Bismillah Hir Rahman Ir Raheem

Peace and blessings be upon you all

Sunday, 24th May

The moon had been sighted last night (annoyingly at 10pm!) which indicates the end of Ramadan and the beginning of Eid celebration so Happy Eid Mubarak, everyone! This Eid, I preferred we didn’t go out to not risk getting infectd but my parents were resilient in wanting to go out, see nature and greenery and sit by the stream as long as no one or very few people are there.

However, obviously everyone wants to spend Eid well so when we went to Shahdara, so did hundreds of people. When we went to the stream, so did hundreds of people. My siblings and I didn’t want to risk being infected so we didn’t even touch the water. On the other hand, my parents were chill. Sometimes, a child has to become to parent to remind one’s parents to stay safe. Atleast our dogs got out of the house.

So we returned shortly, ordered takeaway burgers from Roasters, as food makes life special :).

Monday, 25th May

In Eid, families make sweet dishes like sheer khorma, as you can see above which consists of milk, nuts and dates. It is pudding-like with a thick liquid consistency you can pour into a bowl and enjoy before you have any meal.

I wake up early morning to play PS4 when everyone’s asleep so that I do not interrupt family TV time. I’m playing Assassin’s Creed II-Revelations again and we had gone to Turkey two years ago so there were a lot of sights there that I was familiar with.

In Assassin’s Creed series, the game takes you back to history in the time of First Civilization, the Crusades, Renaissance, French Revolution, American Revolution, etc. and you get to meet renowned figures such as the Medici family, Machiavelli, George Washington, Blackbeard, Florence Knightingale, Karl Marx, Cleopatra, Caesar, Herodotos, Socrates, Suleiman the Magnificent and much more.

In Revelations, you can explore the 16th Century Istanbul so there are a lot of sights you can literally visit, climb and even buy, such as Galata Tower, Aya Sofya and Topkapi Palace so it was cool to visit these exquisite, story-telling sights once again. Here I am atop Bayezid Mosque.

Let this picture of my pup (with her always dirty chin) cheer up all of you! You can’t see it here but she has huge eyes which stare intensely at you like dead fish in a marketplace.

Thursday, 28th May

Since Ramadan is over, I have enough time to read before ‘online’ college starts in two weeks. I mentioned the book Alif before which I could only read one chapter of before Ramadan. Now, I find it hard to put down because it’s so engrossing and how the writer expresses one’s spirituality is beautiful and makes one ponder over their own selves as to what place they stand; and what truly is success.

Food for thought?

Saturday, 30th May

Today we finally decided to get our shih tzus trimmed as summers here get quite intense and it deals with furry animals much harshly. There’s enough worry about COVID-19 for humans but now we have to worry about Parvo viruse, other infections and heat stroke which is taken alot of dogs’ lives, like my relatives’ dog yesterday. We got them trimmed and vaccinated so today was quite a ‘doggy’ day.

It’s lovely to want to celebrate the end of Ramadan, but no so lovely when everyone else has the same idea ! Assassin’s Creed sounds great – I’d heard of it but didn’t realise it was so cultural … I even want to say educational, but maybe that’s pushing it a bit ?! Your dog looks so cute, then you made me laugh with the comment about eyes like a dead fish !! xx

You did right being firm with your parents. I have had a few moments like that with my dad. Eesh! Parents!
I love the look of the sheer khorma. It looks delicious.
Ahh! My fella loved the Assasins Creed games. It is a beautiful game with all the scenery.
I do like that quote and it is something to think about.
Aww! I hope your dogs stay safe x

Hope you enjoyed Eid. I know what you mean about sometimes the child becoming the parent. Coronavirus seems to have had that impact on a lot of people! We had to stop my parents from going shopping, but over the last couple of weeks they have decided to go again.
It sounds like you did the right thing by taking the dogs to the vet. How sad about your relative’s dog.

Well done for “adulting up” against your parents, guess every one had the same idea.
The dog will be grateful for the hair cut.
Love the food for thought quote.

Food really does make life special! I didn’t realise just how much I appreciated food until my oven broke! :/
I had to chuckle, I’ve had to be firm with my parents a few times during lockdown too! So glad you got to enjoy Eid though, must have been strange living through Ramadan in lockdown! Sim x #Project366

Parents! I’ve had similar problems with my Dad. Sounds like you had a good Eid regardless, even if it wasn’t what you might have done normally.

I know exactly what you mean about parents. While my Mum has been very good staying at home, my in-laws have been as naughty as children. That milk and nuts dessert looks delicious, I’d love to try it. Glad you managed to take your dogs for a hair trim. Your pup looks super cute.

Your dog is so cute. It’s hard getting out when everyone else has the same idea making social distancing nigh on impossible. That’s a great quote – not come across that one before. The sheer khorma looks delicious. #project366

Yes I know what you mean about the kids having to be the parents. Have had to lecture mine numerous times about not going out….but often dad in particular doesn’t listen. Sorry to hear about your relatives dog.

The sheer korma loos good!

Happy Eid, I often find that I am the grown up reminding my parents to stay safe! I am sorry to hear about your relatives dog. Good that you managed to get yours vaccinated and trimmed, its one more thing you don’t need to worry about at the moment,
