Shoes, Sfenz & Fish Market!

I think the blogging world can't get any crazier..lol As I am posting the picture of my shoes I am thinking what the hell am I doing!? So yah Meral's to follow!..lol

hehhhe!

Meral with her Dora Doll, it was a gift from my Dad on her 2nd Birthday...
I think Meral kind of looks like Dora :oD

Sfenzzzzzzzzzz any one? Ok so I am not fal7a.. I don't know how to make it at home, normally I don't like it but I was craving it for like 2 weeks, so on Friday I decided to get me some Sfenz :oD

After we picked up essfenz, we went to the fist market.. Masha'Allah all kinds of fresh fish, some of which were still moving!!


We got there around 7.30 a.m. it wasn't that busy, but as we were leaving the traffic out side was unbelievable!

I haven't been to the fist market in 4 years! It's now cleaner and more organized... :o)


Mom was invited over for lunch, which was couscous with fish, and grilled fish. I forgot to take pictures of that huh!

That is one fun, full & packed day :) and one of my favorite places in Tripoli is the Fish Market as I LOVE SEAFOOD!!!! and I usually go to buy fish for my mother to cook and she keep screaming at me if i FORGET to get the fish CLEANED lol (which i usually do)

Fal7a? I am 100% sure u r, you did Coucasy bil7oot and u not fal7a? (BTW did u use Faroog 7oot? its the best with coucasy)

The blog world has offically gone crazy, with feet, food, and my hand writing lol............... I am usually good with words but how do you compliment feet? I am sure this will be a new entry in the Arabic compliment dictionary lol....... but ur feel are lovely but how can u girls survive with those pointy shoes? dont they kill u? or is it the price of fashion and looking good?

PS: Alway good to read ur posts :) & Meral (as usual) is looking good & happy

Fe Aman Allah

Anglo you see I was busy eating it..lol it was YUMMYYYY :oD, after seeing that amount of fish I decided to go buy fish at least once a week so we can have it 3 times a week. Yah that's Dora the Explorer.. Meral loves her!

Ahmed, it was a fun day :o) I saw farooj b7ar.. it's the best with couscous you're right!

Well I am not fal7a cuz my mother-in-law made it LOL I helped and cleaned isn't that enough! you don't need to compliment feet..lol it's wierd hehhe, and by the way the pointy part of the shoes is empty..lol no toes are there so it doesn't hurt ;o)

thanks for your comment brother :oD

Libyano said...

Medical advice , pointed shoes harm you feet try to avoid them :D

DaMoon said...

hahaha, I can recongnize da carpt, is that at work? hehehe tawa n7arish baba. :p...lol jk, I love those shoes, they'r very comfy

Zfinz, I HATE Zfiniz WITH PASSION, I can never eat that stuff, re7tah makes me daikhaaa, but sa7tean

fish market, I love it of course...so ur mom-in-law, invited mama for lunch? 3li kusksi 7oot? and u woke up at 7:30 am on a weekend to go to soog el7oot? Ok this is starting to smell kinda fishy! cuz knowing u sista, u'll never wake up that early for groceries!!! seriously u've gotten weird lately..lol

merooooooooo, i misss her sooo freaking much and tell her I am getting her tones of Dorra stuff, I am looking for Dorra bikini now..lol

Anglo-Libyan said...

Damoon, there are Dora toys that teach simple English & Spanish, perhaps you should check them out.

piccolina said...

i can't imagine u eatting sfenz !! lol yalla maybe u'll get some wight lol
anyway i have no comment about the fishes .. i don't like it AT ALL !!lool

Happymoi said...

meroooooooooooo is so cute and ya damoon you stole the nickname i made for her ...i was surprised to see you use it..mashallah 3aleha ya maysoon she is really one cute and adorable kid..inshallah ya rab tetraba fe 3zkum and grows up to be the best merooo ever....i totaly love her..."maleketah 7'afefa" as they say in libyan slang...

im not much of a fish eater but yes cosksi bel7oot is something i adore....i know its weird i dont like fish but with kosksi its fine...

your merooo loves dora just like my cousin's duaghter she has dora in all sizes..and if you touch dora you are dead meat..shes funny and cute too..i cant wait until she comes back to libya...

nice shoes...or nice feet (a_akak) it really does feel odd complimenting anyone's foot...

i cant never participate in the food race..if i do my blog will be similair to the guys (fry an egg or something) loooooooool

Good To See You Back Happy & Thank For The Advice

MaySoon said...

Libyano, thanks dude :oD… well I am dying for home made sfenz now..lol I think it’s less oily.. I tell you those shoes are the most comfortable shoes I've ever got, you see as I told Ahmed my toes aren’t in the pointy part, but thanks of the Advice Dr. Libyano ;o)

DaMoon, you’ve been missed…yah it’s at work.. and if you tell Baba I will give him the link to your blog :op….lol
DaMoon knows that my shoesr are comfy..
I used to hate sfenz too, but it’s fine if it’s heated in the oven so it losoes some of the oil and gets crunchy and don’t eat it early, around 10 - 11 is fine..lol
I woke up at 7 for the sake of sfenz, I guess I am getting older I love early mornings now! I am getting weird aren’t I?!!!!

Anglo, that’s a great idea, check them out DaMoon..
Meral’s Dora sings “Dora all around the world” song and says “Hello” in four languages.. I took off the batteries, I put them back from time to time, can’t stand the noise..:o)

Piccolina..lol I ate it wallahi..lol it doesn’t help ya 7anna.. I eat like I am never full…but it doesn’t show!!!! Fish I eat it with couscousi and it has to be any thing but “kalb b7ar” I hate it, and I don’t like seafood “khrabeesh”..lol also for the other kinds of fish it has to be either grilled or fried, I don’t eat it cooked in a sauce!!!

Happy wenek ya bent, we missed you raho!! Are you done exams yet???? Merooo… that’s how we call her at home too :oD thanks for your sweet and kind words ya 7abooba… your cousin’s daughter sounds CUTE :oD yalla when she’s back in Libya let’s all meet and get her & Meral play together with their Doras…:o) …
as I saidit doesn’t get any crazier than this.. posting our shoes!! Duh..lol
Why don’t you fry an egg and post it.. I am not better than you are..lol

a_akak said...
