Sorry to hear about the allergy Maru. On behalf of Scotland, I apologise for the salmon!

Hope you didn't miss out on all the celebrations.

Apologies accepted but I'd eat it again.it was the sweetest of Salmons I have ever had...
:yahoo:

Yes I missed out on the EID celebrations as I have less than clear vision in order to drive safely... and if I had to drive back at night it would have been dangerous.

SO I couldn't go visit anyone ...even nearby family/friends Gus... in a taxi, because it's painful straining to see and medication puts ME in a state of drowsiness and legs feel like wobbly jelly. ;)

Eye lids have swollen up so vision is limited. I look as if I am in constant state of sleepiness with the eyes almost closed. Cheeks under the eyes are puffed up too.

Must be punishment for being bad... :unsure:

Thank you anyway. :thumbsup:

I celebrated alone with Porridge and Tea and a shortbread as instructed by Doc in order to flush out the badness .. and snuck a piece of baklava I had gotten...

Thank you :clap2:

:notworking:

Hope the eyes are recovering now Maru. Cruel timing for it to happen now. You'll just have to celebrate Eid-al-Adha extra specially this time.

Hello Gus,
Thank you for asking. Yes the eyelids a
Are showing signs of getting better.
Still have to finish the course of tablet!
:hmmm:

Yes I still need to give something towards the Fitr/Zakat.
Zakat al-Fitr - Wikipedia

Gus I am quite impressed by your knowledge of Eid -Ul-Adha. Yes I should be able to celebrate that iñ August {around 21st August.} after returning from
Phoenix NATS invigorated and happy having seen everyone...


:yahoo:

You are right I will make it extra special as I missed Eid Ul FITR.

I am guessing that you no doubt see celebrations etc taking place in Scotland with a small/large percentage of Pakistani Muslims residing over the
Border.

Thank you for you best wishes and I hope you are invited to enjoy the food at Eid.

:thumbsup:

Hey Dave....

Better late than never. Thank you.

Tomorrow I will catch up the ones I lost out on. Then I am all done.

EID went quiet ... at home.
:whistle:

But look forward to Eid -Ul-Adha. In August...

Have a super soccer day.

Hi Maru, working in a large teaching hospital up here we have a lot of Muslim colleagues and students (and most other religions), so we're always fairly aware of what celebrations are occurring.

Integration is pretty good up here - our cricket team against Ireland today has Saafyan Sharif and Hamza Tahir in it and there are lots of good young players coming through the junior ranks as well.

Oh I remember now you mentioning you worked in a hospital (was it something to do with neuroscience.. cannot recall exactly).
MY Zambian couzin {came over to study from Lusaka} studied medicine at Aberdeen School of Medicine and now has a practice in Lancashire where he settled down.

Yes Gus it's great to have such diversity in ones work place etc ... you get to know all sorts of things including when Eid or Bar Mitzvah or other celebrations are.

Your Scottish cricket team or the Hospital cricket team ?

As you well know most of us are cricket mad as We grew up playing barefooted , listening or watching or being in a School/college etc team.

I grew up in India(Indian Muslim born) so it was either street /field hockey or cricket or athletics. I DID all three.

I hope that your Team gets to be Top of the league.

Of course the two gentleman you mention in your post are Muslims and their names suggest that they are Pakistani Muslims.

I bet they found it exhausting Fasting and doing everyday normal stuff with the ROZAS being so long.

Eid in Adha.. the Festival of Sacrifice ... is in August so I should be fine by then...
WE also have Muharram too ... it's all party party lately for us ..

Have a great week ahead.

:thumbsup:

Hi Maru, the players I was mentioning are in the current Scotland team playing T20s against Netherlands and Ireland.

I played for 20+ years but my back told me it was time to stop a few years back, so I just do a bit of coaching now. Our club has had many professionals from India and Pakistan over the years and it was always interesting talking to them about just how big the game is back home. We had two Indians at one point, one from Saurashtra and one from Chennai and their only common language was English! India is an amazing place...

WOW...

Well you take great care with your back ...
I used to play field hockey... not any more due to circumstances.

:)
INDIA is a vibrant,colorful, amazing place and you should try and go once at least to get the taste of it...

I LOVE it....
