A Memento

Emel Sayin witnessed an incident in the movie set of Mavi Boncuk, in which a rug was kidnapped. After she saw Kemal Sunal who was walking after receiving his payment even though his destination was really far, she felt curious and followed him. Kemal Sunal entered a restaurant and left shortly after, and Emel Sayin asked the owner: "did that man had a debt to you" and they said "No". Actually, Kemal Sunal was giving some money to the restaurant when he received his payments in order to help the poor. Similar to the Bread on the Hook Not only he was emotionally satisfying us by making us happy, but he was also helping the poor.


In order for the skewered meat to not overcook, it will be beneficial to leave them in water for a while. Meat which absorbs the water, will be perfect by the time its is cooked. If we don't do this, we overcook them which ruins both the appearance and the taste.
