SHORT ESCAPE, BURSA.

Salam people, well, I just came back from Bursa
yesterday. Lepas 2 minggu terkurung dalam bilik
disebabkan alerji panda pada musim bunga. Yeah! So last Wednesday
I decided to go to Bursa, and visiting a friend of mine at the same time.
Well, my place, Kocaeli and Bursa are in the same region,
Marmara region, so yeah we are surrounded by sea. :) Bursa is
one of the most industrialized city in Turkey, and actually Bursa
was a major city during the Ottoman Empire in the
14th century. From distance you can see Uludag Mountain.
Snow dah mula cair tau sekarang ni, tapi masih banyak lagi
lah, dan boleh korang bayang how fresh the small streams are
bila salji mencair? Oh, memang best!

I did nothing much there since my aim was to visit my
friend there. I was staying at her house for the whole 4 days,
we cooked good food too. Haha.

On the second day there, we went for sightseeing in
the city, visiting Ulu Camii or Ulu Mosque (Grand Mosque),
was built in 1396-1400. The best thing being living in Turkey is,
you can see thousands of mosques, big and small, which has been built
for hundred of years, I love visiting them a lot. The architectures
are impressive. I went into the
mosque, am just wah..... MasyaAllah. It was
quiet crowded there, and yes we saw visitors from
Malaysia too, with cameras besar badak everything. Haha.
Hobi aku kalau pi masjid2 kat Turki ni, kalau aku dah solat
jamak siap2, aku akan buat solat sunat tahiyatul masjid.
At least aku merasa solat kat masjid tu, kan?







A stream running wild in the middle of the ancient city of Bursa,
straight from Uludaq Mountain.

Menuju kejayaan sambil chanting nasi biriyani for million times!


On the next day, we went to a place called Golyazi or also known
as Appolonia. It is an ancient city, you still can see
the ruins of Romans around the island. My friend and I had
a tour around the lake for just 10 lira per head.
It was satisfying, seriously. The view, the air, the company,
and the mak cik who was the boat captain. Ahaha.

Ni lah artisnya, Kak Ti a.k.a Tsiqah Nasir. :D My host. 



Mama, papa , I miss you. Thehehe.

You jump, I snap picture. 





Kat sini ramai yang pakai dapur kayu.


Kenapa muka aku flawless gile?? 




You can see Uludag Mountain from afar, covered with snow.


Dalam cobaan mengayuh, aku main kayak pandai, tapi rowing boat ni berat dol. Salute mak cik tuh!



Inilah the win salad that I told you!



Lepas penat main-main kat pulau tu, kitorang pon
macam lapar, pastu macam nak makan binatang
bak kata kak ti, so kat situ confirm binatang yang sedap
ialah ikan. So we decided to eat animal fish. Haha.
We went to a restaurant with a view. Yang kelakarnye masa
kitorang masuk restoran tu pastu found us a the best table,
it took like few minutes before the waiter to come, sebab
die panggil kawan dia yang boleh berbahasa Inggeris. Once
diorang tahu kitorang boleh cakap Turki, dia macam wahh,
aku dah takut tadi. Haha. Kitorang gelak je. So I had
tuna and kak ti had yayin (catfish). The salad was the best! 
Sebab die letak balsamic sauce. Nanges makan salad tu, sedap sangat!

Pastu tengah2 makan jugak, tetiba ada a guy approach us and tanya
Malaysian? Kitorang pon macam yep! Malaysians. Haha. Actually he is
Palestinian, but married to a Turkish woman, he stayed in US
back then and met his wife there, so his wife's wali hakim
was a Malaysian. haha. Kelakar gilos, pastu dok ulang
words Melayu yang dia tahu which is letak garam dalam makanan
or something, aku dah tak ingat, had a conversation with his wife
too etc. It was a great experience. You know what, Malaysians
has a very good name here in Turkey and other countries aorund
here especially Middle East. So sila bawa nama tu dengan baik.

Lepas makan, kitorang kejar bus balik bandar Bursa semula 
around 5.30 pm, sambil belasah eskrem. It was hot that day, 
hari tu dapat sunburn, selepas beberapa bulan kulit
tak dicium matahari terik. That day, the temperature sore to
20. Okay, till then people. Take care then.
Love, hugs and kisses from 
Kocaeli, Turkey. <3

SPRING, WALLAHI, I LOVE, ADORE, HEART YOU!

Salam, flowers! Well, when you are thinking about spring,
what is the first thing in you mind? 
Flowers?
Rain?
Breezy?
Beautiful?
Colourful?
Majestic?
Sexy?
Bees?
Butterflies?

Demmit! Haha. Well, me, just one word,
ALLERGY! Tadaaa!
Yes, am allergic to flowers and pollen. Can you believe Safura Kamil
defeated by flowers? Never thought one before because
spring in Turkey isnt my first, I have experienced spring season
in other places too, but nothing like here, I dont
know why. Haha. A day outside equal to 1 week on bed.
Am survived under 0 subfreezing temperature but not
spring, which should be my playful season. Okay, am
not complaining, just telling, at least
am not allergic to summer, if not my mom
would denounce me. Ahaha!
Nyah kamu dari Malaysia, allergic summer
kunun, sah-sah kulit hi'TAN'. Eh? 

Actually, my allergy reaction started last 2 weeks 
when my friends and I went to the tulips park in
Seka Park, yep, later that night I started developing
sore-throat but it went off after 2 days because I drank
lemon+honey wonder potion. Haha. 

But last weekend I went to Istanbul, and walking outside
under the sunshine till evening. Haa, masa tu dah rasa
pening-pening angau dilamun cinta dah,
sejuk panas sejuk panas, sebab pollen.
Nak belanja gambar masa kat Istanbul sket.






Once I arrived in Kocaeli, sah, kau dah dapat penyakit
kau Safura Kamil. Kih3!  Later that night, I went to bed with severe 
headache especially at the back and middle of my head and neck, and at the same
time am so sure that am dehydrated. I didnt take any medication
because I dont want to pass out because of the drugs so I can
drink and re-hydrated my body back. The next day,
ow yeah! Super headache, but managed to meet my lecturer,
because he is so unreachable. Haha. Macam biskot chipsmore sekejap
ada pastu lameeeeee  takde. Moga Allah panjangkan usianya, amin.
Back from school, again, I climbed up on my bed and later nowhere to be found 
Safura Kamil. Haha. Pengsan terus, pecah kepala confirmed! 

Tapi dalam sakit-sakit tu, tahu Sami Yusuf nak datang,
gigihkan jugak, makan ubat allergic bagai, and am not
expecting to meet him in the middle of tulips field lahaiii...
Haha, lemah lutut bila tau sebenarnye kena pi
kat bunga banyak2 tu, tengah padang, because I though
it was going to be in the hotel where we had our lunch.
Wrong! Okay, talk no more, here are some pictures.








Wrap it up, Sami Yusuf is a handsome guy but I think 
lelaki Melayu lagi handsome, eh? Haha. What an angelic
voice he has. Okay, less than 3 hours there, I had like a 
super headache and now am having mild cough already,
trying to fight it with lemon and honey.
Once I get to room, instantly grab my pills
and sleep. Now my voice is changing, rasa
dalam tekak macam ada porcupine je,
my neck is hurting, my skin is very warm, at the same time
my waist hurts too. I couldn't walk for a long distance. Ni kalau
letak tangan kat mama ni, mama cakap dedor kamu ni..
Wah! Mama plak jauh. 

Nasib baik ada minyak cap Kapak, ahaha! Minyak
cap Kapak is totally my life savior, a must have ointment
for Malaysians. Malam tadi tak boleh tido
sebab blocking nose, I just pour it on my forehead,
and then the minyak went down to my cheeks everything,
am just oh my God, jangan masuk mata oi! I just
rub it on all over the face, berseri berangin
muka aku tengah malam semalam. Ahaha. Tapi
dapat tidur dengan lena, bukan setakat hidung
lapang, hati pun jadi lapang. Alhamdulillah.
(Sebenarnya malas nak sapu sopan-sopan sebab
kena bukak mata, curah je senang)

Okaylah, pening otak dah actually ni, mabuk
apa pon aku tak tahu. Sekali lagi musin bunga untuk Safura Kamil
di Turki next year sebelum habis, insyaAllah.

TULIP IS LALE, LALE IS TULIP.

Salam people, yosh! After awhile isnt? Writing is no more
amusing to me, since I have to write loadsssss of articles
as my homework for this semester. Sakit otak dah, especially
when it comes to this field. Rasa nak nanges? Tak, cuma rasa asyik
nak makan dan makan dan makan, thanks to Allah  my
roommates, they love me too much and keep feeding me. Haha.
Am I gaining weight? I think so, I think few kilos already,
despite of doing those indoors stretching exercises,
push ups or whatever am doing, seems like it doestn work at all.
*Alasan!

Oh ya, well, this entry is about yesterday, I went to Seka Park,
the park along the shoreline in my place, it's freaking
beautiful. You can have it all in one place, which are
mountain range view with snow patches on it
across the Marmara Straits, millions of tulips along the park.
Am not a fan of flowers, but looking at tulips, am just melting. 

So yesterday, my friends and I went for cycling there, sambil
menyaksikan betapa majestik nye bunga tulips di samping
hari yang agak sejuk. Actually, am allergic to flowers,
so because of that, am start having headache and sore throats 
today. Hadeh! Berat kepala sudeh! Last year I missed the tulips season 
festival since I have had like the worst allergy reactions
towards flowers and pollen. End up staying indoor
for weeks. Actually I have been indoor since the beginning
of March. Haha. Well, here are some pictures,
and I will try to upload some videos too. We'll see.
