Expect the unexpected, follow the lovers lost in this blog.

A blog to cater your mind,body,and soul as you drink Turkish Coffee. We are proud to present our new storyline called Cafe's search for his "Zahir". Everyday is a new day for the "Cafe" (from Istanbul) & his journey for "Zahir" (from Baku). Don't expect extraordinary drama from the narrator, me. Still, this is a drama (maybe real!), and have better impact on you than watching a soap opera. Guaranteed. There is genuine feelings within inspirational periods. Cross your fingers for this story to end with happy marriage :-) All rights are reserved.

EDIT (01 July 2009) - She is engaged with another man, and I finally made my marriage proposal bringing my family to Baku. The result: She stays engaged and will have her wedding, so called "toy", with that another man.

Rest in peace Ms. Zahir.

7.45pm and it is 22 Degrees (in C, not F) outside, Is This October In Philly?

Today we share a couple of news briefly. Let's begin with some environmental action. ZDNet publishes an article about Colin Beavan, who is trying to live very environmental on a ninth floor of a Manhattan building. Image from NYTimes article, if you want to read the full story, you may click the image. Also, check out his blog called NoImpactMan. By the way, while I was linking to his blog, I thought what if there will be a new legislation that will be restricting this kind of linking between websites . It would be funny, huh? People excavating the web through guessing the links like this one:
or a more complicated one:

So, we did not need to bookmark this story, it is on our blog now. There are lots to clean from My Bookmarks, but we will get there soon. It has been a long time since the last series of posts, I know, and I apologize.

Nezt...or in proper english, Next...

In Philadelphia, "thousands of men pledge to patrol for peace." After hearing stories of killings in some parts of the city, this is a great initiative.

In NYC, you may want to be a cab driver, but you know what, they are not happy either, they recently went on strike for some reason, more on Businessweek.

China did it again. Now, people are accusing them "of rerouting search traffic to Baidu (China-based search engine)." Now, let's think how safe we are surfing on the internet.

I like this website, but do not have much time to explore it. It is definitely worth to take a look and then love it! My suggested reading is about teamwork posted in this awesome Bnet blog.

Global Heritage Fund has two nominations from Turkey for their 2008 preservation projects.

So far, that's it, I guess. For now, take care. keep warm or chill, I cannot tell, is the summer over yet?

When Time Shrinks, Blogging Outage

It has been more than a month since last post. A short poem might go well with this short but meaningful post.
Today is "bayram" after a long month of Ramadan.
People celebrate it with eating candies and dessert,
Today is the day for accepting excuses
For those we have not been talking for many years
Eid Mubarek

And a news story link from whitehouse.

And, something I just came across this second.
