Project 366 2020 – WEEK 30

Bismillah Hir Rahman Ir Raheem

Peace and blessings be upon you all

Sunday, 19th July

The clouds look lovely today, looking like sea shells one after another that I had to take a picture of it. There’s no beach where I live so the beach came to me.

Monday, 20th July

I’ve finished reading The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes!!! Suzanne Collins is amazing and has written an amazing, detailed and complex story that made me pull the skin of my hair. I wrote a review about this book this week.

Tuesday, 21st July

At my parents’ request, I’m planning to make macaroons soon so I bought almond flour. I haven’t made it before but one learns by practice, and you know what they say; practice makes perfect.

Today’s takeaway is Franco’s because as compared to a lot of restaurants in Islamabad, Franco’s steaks and parmos are amongst the best we’ve tasted ever! I enjoyed Parmo Fungi today!

In addition, today my guest post about my cheesecake, which I baked last week, was shared by The Petite Home Cook. You can check out the recipe and my attempt in making it here.

This week, we learnt about another special sense; hearing. It’s quite complicated yet very fascinating, how sound energy converts into pressure vibrations of the fluid in the inner ear which eventually convert into electrical impulses. Also, the inner ear is where the flow of fluid is responsible for one’s sense of balance, posture and gravity.

Today was the inauguration of Aya Sofya’s opening from a museum into a mosque, with the offering of Friday/Jummah prayer. The headline says that the Friday prayer is being offered in Aya Sofya after 86 years since it was declared a museum by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. I’m not going into the debate about whether this is the right or wrong decision but it was nice to see the inside of Aya Sofya once again. The renovation still appears to be ongoing since two years when I visited Aya Sofya, but they covered the renovation work with a pretty red drape.

I had a fever and slight cough and felt quite tired today during class. I worry if it’s COVID-19. When I took a nap, my fever had gone, but I’m not leaving my house for a couple of days even to walk the dogs for a couple of days to watch out for any symptoms. I’m feeling as good as normal, Alhamdulillah.

I came across a work that was created by a Chinese calligraphy scholar who also studied Arabic calligraphy in Egypt. He created this piece of the 99 names of Allah. If you read the names sideways the names are in Arabic. But if you read them from the top, the names are like Chinese characters. It is very fascinating.

I’m glad you enjoyed The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes! I hope you are feeling OK now and it’s not Covid-19. A couple of months ago we would have had to isolate for seven days if we had any symptoms, and our households would have to isolate for 14 days. Now we can just arrange for a test and only need to isolate until we’ve had the test.

Hope you’re feeling better now and it wasn’t Covid-related. I saw about the museum/mosque on TV and guessed it would be a controversial decision. Oooh macaroons – haven’t eaten them for ages (my last attempt at making them was a total fail ! lol) Your takeaways always look so tasty ! We ate in so many fast-food places and restaurants when we were in Belgium last week that the kids don’t want any more, they just want my cooking – tee hee hee !

I’m feeling much better. I’ll share how my attempt at making macaroons turns out (hopefully good). True, after eating foreign food for so long, one misses food made with mother’s hands. I felt that hard when I went to USA for a month

The body is an amazing thing when all said and done.

The clouds are very pretty, they look like an ocean wave to me. Hope you’re feeling better this week, and it wasn’t the dreaded virus. Good luck with making macarons! It’s a recipe I haven’t attempted to make. I won’t be entering a debate on Hagia Sophia, but I wish it stayed as a museum for people of all religions to admire.

I was under the weather last week and you really do panic that its coronavirus, thankfully I am feeling better now. The clouds are beautiful and I really fancy macaroons now

What a gorgeous cloud formation!!
How did you get on with the almond flour and macaroons? I can never seem to find the flour, only ground almonds which need to then be grounded a little more to make a finer flour consistency. I imagine learning about hearing and how ears actually work is interesting! Hope you are all having a lovely week! Sim x

I have been wanting to try a cake with almond flour but almond flour is ridiculously expensive here so left it.

The cloud picture is lovely!

I hope it wasn’t covid – I have convinced myself I am coming down with it multiple times and then woke up the next day feeling fine. Must try The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes as I’ve read all The Hunger Games books.
