OK.. I’m guilty as charged!! I couldn’t finish my blog on time last night coz the moment I updated my FB saying that I wanted to finish it last night.. Bella did her “big business” then she wanted milk.. then we fell asleep while talking to each other.. So, janji tinggal janji lah.. Now I’m back from work, Bella’s daddy has put her to sleep.. Here I am in front of my computer *wink*
Alright.. most of you wanted to know about our trip to Turkey.. Firs, I wanna ask you.. Do you know what’s the capital of Turkey? Nope, it is NOT Istanbul.. it is Ankara!! Hahahah… I got that one wrong too!! It was Istanbul until 1923, they moved the capital to Ankara 🙂 We learn something new everyday! Hehehe..
So, remember I told you the temperature there is 0 degrees.. I was wrong!! *dang* Few days before we arrived Ankara, it was minus 20degC.. and the day we arrived there, it was minus 14degC!! But at the same time.. the sun is shining… aaahhhhh… I just love living in a fridge with sunlight!! 😉 And guess what?!! Bella loves the cold weather… Initially she was quiet, like she’s thinking what’s going on around her, after a while, she get used to it.. and really enjoys the snow..!! Owh.. did I mention about the snow?? Yay!!
“Mommy.. can I eat the snow??”
This is when she really put the snow in her mouth, and she got diarrhoea for the next 3 days!! Hahahaha..
Istanbul is full of historical buildings.. very Europe-ish.. well, it is actually half Europe and half Asia.. Anyway, my point is, it is very Europe-ish without any problem finding halal food.. I whacked everything edible.. just to enjoy Turkish gourmet.. They use a lot of meat, lamb and cheese.. heaven!! Don’t even think about asking me about my weight.. the answer is “No, I’m not telling you!”
One place you MUST visit in Istanbul is.. the Grand Bazaar!! Taddaaaaa… Not a surprise that one coming from me, eh 😉 It is huge!! More than 3400 shops in the Grand Bazaar, and I believe if I need to go to all of the shops, I might need 4 days to finish it all… unfortunately, we only managed to spend about 4 hours there.. Bella’s dad schedule is jam packed!! No time to leisurely walk in the bazaar.. haih.. They have everything you need from Turkey. Love. Love. Love…
Serving my duty as mommy.. Breastfeeding Bella at the Grand Bazaar.. Don’t worry, she can breathe from under my breastfeeding cover 😉
We stayed at the Bhosphorus area where part of Ottoman empire was located.. It is facing the sea with gorgeous view of the other side of the town..
And that is little Bella stylishly waiting for her flight back to KL.. she had fun in Turkey.. wishing she (and mommy) could come back again.. *hint to daddy* 😉
