  1. I rather suspect that landlord is trying to recoup the rent increase he didn't apply the previous year ... !!
  2. No problem Ken... have there been any problems with this, or are you just being extra cautious? I know there's a lot of hacking going on everywhere, hoping the troublemakers won't target our forums.
  3. You'd need to check with British authorities... perhaps try checking their website for information.
  4. We haven't had mail for several years. Whenever my bankcard needs renewing, it never arrives. So I have to call my bank in Australia & they send a replacement by cargo (only took 3 days last time). I've given up on snail mail, everything gets done electronically now!
  5. Yes, it will take a while to clear it all out of your mind, & then you'll be able to see him in his true colours. You would almost have to feel sorry for the girl he is marrying; she doesn't know these things about him yet but will realize one day & (having married him) be even more disappointed than you are right now. At least you now have the chance to move on from this & give yourself a chance to meet someone who appreciates you.
  6. I'm shocked at the way he has treated you, Softhearted, & it does seem to me he doesn't know his own mind but caves in to community pressure, meaning it's easy to make him do what he thinks society wants him to do. If his feelings for you were really strong he'd be able to resist that pressure he's under. But that sort of man seems unable to love any one person fully, which means the girl he is marrying will likely be disappointed in the same way in time. And yes, it is possible he may try to come back to you at some stage. if he does, you should know he may disappoint you again, because he is emotionally unstable. I wish for you to look for someone else... when you are ready.
  7. Hi Nona, welcome to the forum . Only civil marriages are recognized in Turkey, ie. conducted by a civil marriage celebrant. Religious marriages may be conducted by imams, but if it's just done in the family, it just means the parents have given their blessings & consent, & so it's seen as respectable in the eyes of the community. That's why his parents would feel more comfortable about it. Actually, if you google "Turkish Marriage laws", you'll get a heap of useful information from various sites. Hope it helps..
  8. Yes, I agree with Cukurbagli that it's probably a dialect thing. The real word for suffering/torment in Turkish is eza or eziyet. But my dictionary defines ezgi as: 1. melody. 2. tone, timbre (of a voice). 3. style, tempo. 4. worry, depression. So you see, in Cyrus they do have a point!
  9. My family & I are all registered with our local Sağlık Ocağı & I believe everyone under the SGK must be registered with a Family Physician. My son was fortunate never to have needed to see a doctor & wasn't registered with e-nabız. And as he registered he saw that a Family Physician had been allocated to him who was far out of our area. So we changed that online & made his appointment successfully online for this coming Monday. You get to choose which vaccine you want during the appointment process. @Emilio How is your process getting along?
  10. OMG! Seems like an awful lot of time, effort & expense to get Turkish citizenship nowadays, and not easy to find accurate & reliable information (other than Ken's) on requirements & procedures! And this for an earnest young man already deemed Turkish..? Many yearss ago my husband registered our kids at the Turkish Consulate in Australia soon after their births, whereupon they were granted their kimliks (albeit without photos).... no mess, no fuss. I salute you, @Selim1984uk, for your patience & perseverance in pursuing your quest! Good luck to you..
  11. My son wasn't able to make his online appointment today due to an error, so tomorrow we're calling 182..
  12. My son is in this age group so I checked today and yes, he is eligible. When you make an appointment online, it asks whether you want Pfizer or Sinovac, then you get a choice of your Family physician or nearest hospital. @Emilio Perhaps check your date of birth is registered correctly, then try adding a Family physician (bearing in mind you cannot change it for at least 3 months). Failing that, try calling 182, hoping they can help figure it out.... Good luck!
  13. I found this interesting : https://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/national/pfizer-beats-back-variants-as-astrazeneca-receives-a-timely-boost-20210510-p57qj0.html
  14. Yes, I had my 2nd shot last Wednesday -- all over & done with ! At the very least we are protected against severity of the disease but still must take routine precautions. Totally getting used to it now, just starting to wonder how long it might take to get back to "normal", but I know it'll never be quite the same..
