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.

Mind Blogging - Web, Mobile, and Here Comes Your Genuine Mind

How many times did you think about something in a very particular, innovative way?
And then, forgot!

Do we need to carry a paper and pencil all the time we have these priceless moments? Maybe, they are not going to change the world, but they may make a difference. Who knows, you might even write your own poem!

I would like to have my mind connected to a wireless receiver. I do not want to connect to Internet with my mind. I want to send my thoughts through this wireless receiver to my computer, or some type of library of thoughts, etc. Really, many times, all those priceless thoughts, metaphors, just dissolve. I am just waiting to have the tech geeks announce this innovative machine.

Philadelphia will be going wireless citywide, via Earthlink. So, it might be possible to connect to internet and do mindblogging. Or, almost everywhere, you can receive mobile phone signal (well, in subway it is very poor though!). So, mindblogging might be possible through your own cell phone. (By the way, check Blog Catalog for a mindblogging search result I found out. Indeed, the overall catalog seems to be nice agenda.)

Let's pay respect to one of the innovative ideas of this century. Low cost personal laptops for the developing countries. Unfortunately, it is not a great news appearing with the latest response from US President George W Bush's top adviser on HIV/Aids saying the world is losing the battle against the virus. The table below is taken from BBC World News.


Living with HIV Newly infected Deaths from Aids
Sub-Saharan Africa 24.7m 2.8m 2.1m
South and South-East Asia 7.8m 860,000 590,000
Eastern Europe and Central Asia 1.7m 270,000 84,000
Latin America 1.7m 140,000 65,000
North America 1.4m 43,000 18,000
East Asia 750,000 100,000 43,000
Western and Central Europe 740,000 22,000 12,000
North Africa and Middle East 460,000 68,000 36,000
Caribbean 250,000 27,000 19,000
Oceania 81,000 7,100 4,000
Total 39.5m 4.3m 2.9m

We are hoping to see more innovations in the health industry. It seems just unbearable to see those figures growing.

Last, I forgot to time my blogging again, but I guess it took about 15 minutes. As Mastercard ad tells us, these are priceless moments, as long as we grow a community discussing some issues over our Turkish Coffee break. Stay tuned for more!

Also, we bloggers should be able to add other bloggers (using Google's service), like a friend. I am hoping to see this feature in the near future. Google, hear my voice :-)
