新疆大使 帕莎

The ambassador of Xinjiang/East Turkistan,Pasha.

Source: On Tv News

Came across an Uyghur restaurant Al Pasha in Hong Kong and went searching. Find something even more interesting than restaurant that have belly dancer but claiming to be ‘Uyghur’.

Pasha’s full name is 帕莎.吾曼爾(think is like Pasia Wumaner in Mandarin??) married and now residing in Hong Kong.

Pasha was an actress and her film was quite famous back in 90s( at least in China/Hong Kong). She is a from a well-respected family back in Xinjiang/East Turkistan.

She missed her home but thinks Urumqi is nothing different from Shen Zhen anymore. 

She is fluent in Uyghurche ,Mandarin and Cantonese.

She helps spread the knowledge of Xinjiang/East Turkistan among her Hong Kong friends and tried to do the same to other Hong Kong residents.

The thing is, the news claim her name Pasha means treasures of the house while baidu said Pasha means princess. So which one is the right.

Yugur(Close cousins of Uyghur,Turkic) video that is not made by the GOVERNMENT.

The man sings a traditional song of Yugur and if you doubt he is actually speaking a Turkic language, you can skip to 2:20 when he starts to demonstrate Yugur number 1-10(seems like most Turkic 1-10 are highly similar despite everything).

Spot this on Baidu Uyghur pub last week. They say it is from Kazakhstan and is a magazine dedicated to introduce Uyghur culture and current issues. Bad thing is it is in Russian, wish I know Russian.

Remade of Anarhan阿娜尔罕 as drama. Struggling if I should watch this because it is almost certain to be another drama that praises the ethnic harmony between Han and Uighur which is not the reality. 

BUT!!!

The heroine Dilraba Dilmurat is so pretty ………………………………………….(Yah I am hell shallow)

Some think the uniforms are hideous, I am sort of like them coz at least there are effort shown on preserving the culture.

A banner shown in the city Kashgar,Xinjiang/East turkistan. 
in Uyghurce: “güzel hösni-jamalimizni namayen qilip, 
sumbul chachlirimizni lepilditeyli”
People in Uyghur tieba translate it:让我们(指妇女)显露我们美丽的面貌,让我们柔然的头发随风飘飘。
Me trying to translate: Let us(the women) show our beauty, let our soft hair fly in the wind.
Well,clearly is a banner promoting anti-hijab thing.
