Typical Libyan Day!

Hellooo,

My mother-in-law is back in Tripoli, and I am back to my normal routine, no more running around to drive Meral or pick her up, and no more thinking of what to cook for next day’s lunch.

Usually, I am the one responsible for dinner, before I start here is how the story of our typical Libyan lives goes… Our little apartment is right above my in-laws yes typical Libyan style (this temporary situation is 3 yrs & 1/2 old now!) so in the morning I drop Meral down stairs for me to leave to work this is really handy and really typical Libyan too :o), then since I am at work my mother-in-law does the cooking for lunch for the whole family, you know the typical Libyan lunch at 2.30 – 3.00 P.M., then I come back eat my share then go upstairs to continue with the house cleaning chores while Meral is napping , I think my little one has a typical Libyan in her too, after that, I manage to come up with a reason to go out, I hate staying home, yah I like to nassreff (go out a lot that is) so there is always something I need to buy, or some one I need to visit, I usually take my mom-in-law out with me, drop her at her sister’s or if she wants she can come along while doing my thing …don't want to say it's typical Libyan life style but IT IS!!

Anyway, what I prefer to have for dinner is something light, sandwiches & burgers are the best (I do that for me) but since hubby doesn’t come home for lunch and sandwiches are his lunh, he needs to eat what he calls “Real Food” and to him real food is “mbakbka” yah typical Libyan ;o) believe it or not he eats “bakboki” almost every night again typical Libyan shaboob I guess..lol, I became an expert in making mbakbka so I am a typical Libyan woman. Well I say let him eat it while he can, that is before he gets diabetes, or cholesterol! b3eed elshar ;o)

One more thing, Meral has been potty trained by my Mom, yayyyy! I still have her in diapers for the night though; I am not ready for waking up in the middle of the night to take her to the bathroom, not yet :oS she has been potty trained but I am not yet trained for her potty training! However, for the day I just tell her she needs to keep the Barbie on her panties smiling because if she pees in it the Barbie will be crying, also Mom tells her if she wets herself then we're going to tell the seagull (she loves it) who's going to laugh at her… so she’s doing her best to keep it dry, I am proud of her, she's 2 years and almost 4 months now :o)

That was a Typical Libyan Post :o)
after living here so long i find it hard to have the main meal or heavy food at lunch time, we usually eat our main meal in the evening, my mother and most people that come from Libya find it hard to eat late and want their main meal at lunch time. your husband is right about mbakbka, I can eat it everyday no problem.

inshaAllah when you have more kids you will find out that girls learn to use the potty much earlier than boys who take ages to learn :o)

MaySoon said...

Anglo, of course this post was typicle Libyan coz my life is too, and I would love to change few things about it though :o)
I can't understand what's with guys and mbakbka lol

Well if "inshAllah" I have a boy in the future I will ask my Mom to potty train him too..lol

Dinooo said...

Well, me being a non-libyan arab living in Canada i'd say that this is definitely a typical arab life not just libyan lol

Can i get u to send me some "mbakbka" since ur an expert now, u know how much i love eating it :D

P.S. Salami to ur mom, i miss her so much.

MaySoon said...

Hey dino, nice to have you stopping by and commenting, yah if mbakbka doesn't get all rotten and dry ewww, I will send you some no prob...lol
I will salmlek 3le Mom, hey I have some pics of you and Mahmoud got them from Mom, they are fom DaMoon's last visit in Sept... mashallah he's cuteeeeee rabi u7fdah :oD

Curious said...

Even for a libyan woman not living in Libya you will find that where ever you find libyans you will find the typical libyan food, although my husbend is not eating mbakbka every day, but overall the traditions have to be kept where ever we live. Either if it is 3asida or bazeen or reschta mbakbka, these things follow us every where. We always wish to change some things in our lives, but the thing is: will we be happy with the changes??
Maysoon thank you for your congratulations, i know it is late, but i saw my husbend answering so i waited for my chance to answer.

Dinooo said...

Yo sweets, of course am gona stop by read ur posts and comment, otherwise there would be nothing to keep my Libyan on its level or maybe higher ;) and coz i miss u too!!! I've sent new pics to ur email, hope u like them and inshallah bekhaleelek Miral too.

And hey I don't think we are Libyans without our food, Mash2Allah, even 3osban and Gargoush follow us every where, have fun being a Mommy for the first time it's a blissful experience :o)

Dinooo; isn’t he CUTE or what!!! And he really grew up.. Mash2Allah rabi e7’aleeh,

Cofman; thanks for stopping by, you are welcome, I know you like posts about normal stuff, every day life :o) and I read your comment on AngloLibyan's, you are welcome.

Lebeeya said...

lol, cute post. What a typical libyan life you have there :) So cute.

I remember when shalfuta was younger, it didnt take me long to potty train her :)

MaySoon said...

Welcome back Lebeeya, yah I guess kittens are easier to potty train..lol I remember when I trained Bianca it didn't take long :oP

weldemdina said...

The secret about the love affairs of most Libyan guys with mbakbka is it reminds them of the old days when they used to be free and single and go to the beach /zrady with the gang and make mbakbka all day long that’s my theory anyway lol.
They say, " If you can't beat them, join them" that’s what’s happened when Libyans who lived abroad and go back home, at first they find it too difficult to adjust with the Libyan ways then afterwards they have to give up swimming against the current, otherwise they go insane. Maysoon I really enjoy reading your blogger and I thank my friends who recommend it to me.. Great stuff :o).

MaySoon said...

Thanks for stopping by Weldemdina, glad that you enjoyed reading my blog...

You know you kind of gave me an idea of what my Hubby might be thinking when he's eating Mbkabka.. "ya lait elshabab ya3odo yawman!" lol well I can't help but feel sorry for him if that what he thinks..too late now hehhe.. J/K of course...

Safia speaks said...

Mbakbaka is one of my alltime favorite foods; I too could eat that stuff every day all year long.

BTW, it is unnescessary to potty train any kid; the ability to control bowel movement in the body does not appear before around the third year.

MaySoon said...

Safia, thanks for stopping by .. for me mbakbka is only edible if it's with veggies :o)

So far Meral has been in Barbie panties and she's doing great.. I still have to check on her from time to time to remind her tho.. :oD
