Aretha Franklin rest well!

I just read on the blogs that the queen of soul has gone home to her maker, it was reported that she died in the early hours of today. So sad, another legend has gone. May your soul rest in peace Aretha. Some of her songs i really like, Respect, Make me feel like a natural woman, Think, and so on. We will miss your soulfulness. She was 76 and survived by four sons.

Dining at a Turkish restaurant!

I have dined at one or two Turkish restaurant in Nederland. Nothing spectacular at all but this Turkish restaurant in Edmonton is the bomb. The food was delicious, service was good and I enjoyed every bit of the experience.

The experience was a beautiful ending to a wonderful weekend trip to NewCastle. Thanks to my friend Sege for re-introducing me and my family to Turkish food again.
