A Bit of Fun :o)

I spent most of Monday with my 6 year old son as his sister and mother had their own things to do, as usual it was a pleasure and a happy day for both of us, Amir enjoys being with me more than anything else, even his bad eating habits improve when he is with me because he just wants me to be happy with him :o)
We went to the park so that he can have some fun and exercise, they had installed some new toys in the kids play ground, one of them reminded me of Libyan food straight away (yes I know that Libyan food is the main subject in many blogs at the moment) well this toy looked like an over size Libyan Gas3a (big serving dish)

here is Amir served on a Gas3a :o)

Staying on the subject of food, I thought I would show you what we had for breakfast which was really nice especially served with some honey:

home made sfinz

Now, if you want a guaranteed laugh then all you have to do is visit Life of Tabet's blog, Tabet is White African's 12 (nearly 13) years old brother, many of you are probably familiar with Tabet from white african's wonderful Haj Diary. OK now for that guaranteed laugh click HERE :oD

To welcome our new young blogger, Tabet, I am posting some funny pictures which I hope he likes and can copy and keep and I wish him success in his school and InshaAllah a lot of happiness, health and long life.

Leebeya, Take your pick :o)
Just to prove to Lebeeya that adults can fit in that gas3a thingy! here is a very tall man playing with it, bless :o)

Fe Aman Allah

Lebeeya said...

Yakhuti Salimhum, those cats are so cute I just want to eat them!!!

I can't pick just one, can I have them all please :)

just last night I had a dream that I found a huge suitcase in my car with all these little kittens inside. I was looking for Shalfuta inbetween all the kittens and i found so many that looked exactly like her I didnt know which one she was, or if she was even one of them!!

Then I woke up.

I read an article that said my dreams are trying to tell me something. If they are, the symbolism is going to have to be a little more obvious, because I have no idea what that means.

I love sfinz!! they are so yummy! Amir looks so cute in that picture mashallah and I love the toy thingy, do u think i could fit in it?

subhanallah it does look like a huge gas3a lol..

white african said...

lol anglo you are going to be my brothers best friend from now on for mentioning him.

thank you for the encouragment :)

i love sfinaz, our food rocks totally.

Anglo-Libyan said...

thanks Ahmed :o)
the gas3a thingy is in a small park in Stokenewington N16.

lebeeya, you must be constantly thinking about Shalfuta, that is probably why you are dreaming about cats.
yes you can fit in the gas3a, I have seen grown big tall men playing in it, in fact I have a picture of a man playing there :o)

Anglo-Libyan said...

white African, I think we snapped again :o)
you are very welcome, I like Tabet, he is a brave young man :o)

Lebeeya said...

Anglo-Libyan said...

Salam Anglo-Libyan,
What a great day for you and Amir, alhamdullilah. The type of days that build wonderful memories to last a lifetime, alhamdullilah.

The food platters that have been gracing the blog-sights lately have been my delightful and mouth watering. However, I'm uncertain as to what some of them are, so would appreciate more information please. What is sfinz and what is bazeen?

Lebeeya, I have to wonder if a kitty isn't coming your way soon somehow with the dream and now seeing the photos Anglo-Libyan has posted.......could be a sign of what's to come for you, inshallah.

Safia speaks said...

Typical Libyan terrorist; sleeping in the park among innocent children playing! No wonder all the benches were empty!
You look like Fakroona on her back LOL!

I wouldn´t be surprised that next time you show us the family zarda pictures, we are gonna see Amir picking up the bazeen from the garden gas3a :0)

BTW, that chicken looks scary. Could be a member of Hells Angels anytime, I reckon.

Mmmmm..sfinj....every morning! The nicest way to commit heart attack.

Anglo-Libyan said...

Thanks Trbilsia :o)
I like sfinz with honey or egg and cheese or just on its own with a cup of tea.

Salam ibeebarbie
yes it was a lovly day, thank you :o)
Sfinz is a type of savoury Donut that is very popular in Libya.
Bazeen is actually not for the faint hearted, its a typical Libyan meal that looks like concrete but tastes great here is a picture & recipe in English.BAZEEN

for Libyan food check THIS

Anglo-Libyan said...

Safia that was not me in the picture playing with gas3a :OS
I do not know who it is! unless you meant Amir :o)

the cicken is very scary but funny!!
true Sfinz isnt the healthiest of food but nice :o)

Lebeeya said...

hahaha, thanks for posting the picture! I am loving it. That toy thingy looks so much fun! Please tell me, would it look wrong if a girl with a hijab and abayah on was twirling on that thing in public?! :P

weldemdina said...

At first when I saw the picture, I thought it must be your new satellite dish in your back garden till I saw your son Amir may Allah bless him inside it, then I realised its one of these rides, having fun with children in this age a wonderful experience for the parents to have 'till they reach their teen, then the real fun starts, fasten your seat belt and get ready for the big ride of teenage experience :o) .

ibeebarbie said...
