Lokum (Turkish delight)

Lokum, in other words, Turkish Delight. It symbolises engagement. It’s a sweet. I was given this because someone just got engaged. The girl who got engaged passed these around school.

I just realized when speaking in Albanian, I’m also using Turkish words. I was fascinated that “Avash avash” is a Turkish phrase. I’ve wanted to learn Turkish just because. Albanian adopted a lot of words from other languages.
