Turkish Delight

Dear Diary,

After being wowed with good-looking Turkish models and seduced with soft shiny leather products, we made a quick stop at a shop selling Turkish confectionery such as Turkish Delight, Baklava, Cotton Candy Chocolate and many more. Besides these sweet things, there are also locally made merchandise being sold.

According to Wikipedia:
Turkish delight or Lokum (Turkish) is a family of confections based on a gel of starch and sugar. Premium varieties consist largely of chopped dates, pistachios and hazelnuts or walnuts bound by the gel; the cheapest are mostly gel, generally flavored with rosewater, mastic, Bergamot orange or lemon. The confection is often packaged and eaten in small cubes dusted with icing sugar, copra or powdered cream of Tartar, to prevent clinging. Other common types include such flavors as cinnamon and mint.

We bought a few items. The most special among all is olive oil. No, it is not for cooking but for the whole body use. It can be applied on hair and skin. It is not very oily, easily absorbs into skin and smells very nice too.

3 notes of inspiration:
