Project 366 2020 – WEEK 45

Bismillah Hir Rahman Ir Raheem

Peace and blessings be upon you all

Sunday, 1st November

There’s nothing like a scrumptious crisp yet soft texture of indulging into some vibrant coloured macaroons! Here are some from Crema.

Monday, 2nd November

Another day of getting more toothpastes. Often times, the toothpaste in my bathroom runs out and I tell myself to tell my parents to get some more. However as soon as I step out of the bathrooms, life spins me around in its routine that I forget, for as long as even a week.

Look familiar? This is the Ishihara colour chart helpful in diagnosing colour vision defect (better terminology than colour blindness which is very rare). One can either have a colour vision defect of a specific colour; red, green or blue, or even more like orange or yellow. If yyou don’t have colour vision defect, you should easily be able to read 16 on the left and 73 on the right. However, one shouldn’t test their colour vision through a picture like this; they should have the Ishihara chart in front of them in real space and time.

I went over to a friend’s house for some dance practicing. Here’s a click from her terrace.

Thursday, 5th November

Today we learnt an aspect of trauma life support; how to put on a cervical collar. This is important as if one comes across a person who has undergone trauma, such as a road accident, it is vital that you stabilise the neck so that incase there is a fracture of the cervical vertebra, it doesn’t pierce the spinal cord and lead to paralysis or weakness of motor function, and also impair breathing as the nerves that supply the diaphragm come from the neck.

The collar looks like this which you wrap firmly around the neck and then tape blocks on either side of the neck. However, if you do not possess these equipment, just stabilise the neck and tell someone to call an ambulance and keep it stable until they arrive.

Friday, 6th November

Tonight, we celebrated my sister’s Dholki, i.e pre-wedding celebration. It was outdoor and the main stage is shown above. The venue is carpeted so the kids sit on the ground. On the ground in the center, there is a Dholak, i.e a drum, that a woman beats while everyone chants to some local folk songs about marriage and companionship. Afterwards, everyone danced and then enjoyed food and of course, each other’s company.

Saturday, 7th November

Today we had a Dua, i.e prayer, in the same place the next afternoon. In this event, Hamds, i.e poetic way of praising Allah without any music involved, Naats, i.e poetic way of praising our Holy Prophet (SAW) without any music involved, and a talk about how the marital life of the Holy Prophet (SAW) serves as a sweet, comforting role model for couples. The event was very enjoyable and especially serene because of this view behind the lawn

Your sister’s pre-wedding ceremony sounds awesome, what a lovely event and I expect everyone is super excited now! Keep us posted on all the celebrations, cannot wait to see pictures!
I’m so glad that I managed to spot 16 and 73 in those charts, especially after this week, I can actually feel my eyes turning square from staring at a screen so much!
Those macarons look divine, my absolute guilty treat and something I most definitely will not share! 😉 Hope you are having a lovely week! Sim x

I always think I love macarons, then when I have them I remember I prefer looking at them than eating them. N did that colour eye test this week as part of a wider test. I remember doing it myself at primary school.

I love macarons, haven’t had them for ages though! I can relate to forgetting things as soon as you step out of the room! Lovely to enjoy your sister’s pre-wedding celebrations. I love the view from where the Dua was held. #project366

I can relate to the forgetting something as you walk out of a room.
Glad it did not rain for you Dholki and glad you all enjoyed it. Amazing how different cultures do marriage so differently.
I remember those colour tests as well.

I love macaroons! My fav!

Lovely setting for the dholki. I had a very small dholki, actually my whole wedding wasn’t anything special.

Don’t think I have heard of Hamds before to be honest.

Yum to macarons! They are a firm favourite here. I am glad I could spot the numbers okay! Looks like a wonderful place for a pre-wedding ceremony and the outside venue looks very peaceful.

Those macaroons look good! They seem a popular choice but I have yet to try them. Toothpaste is the one thing I always seem to have plenty of, its shower gel we seem to go through quite quickly here! The pre-wedding celebration sounds such a lovely idea, I wish weddings lasted a little longer here like that.

It’s lovely to follow your sister’s wedding and all the different parts of it – so much to plan ! Aaagghh toothpaste ! The number of times I come home from the shops and suddenly remember all the things I forgot to pick up ! Ooh those macaroons look lovely 🙂
