Pariya!!!!!!! She's so lovely!! 

Ah yes... the abacus. My school had an abacus program for selected students. And yes, it's WAY convenient once you're familiar but VERY different than the basic maths we learn in normal maths classes. Kinda regret that I've forgotten all those lessons. Shame on me.

 

Ooooh, Pariya. Do your best!!! Umar's waiting for you ;A;

Ah, the awkward, blushing, wobbly-mouthed smile of a young maiden in love. Cute stuff, Pariya.


Indeed, as a fellow potato once said; If you are glad that you re born a guy, and she's a girl. Finally feeling excited there is tomorrow to be had together...

So you're telling me that if I was born several hundred years ago and could do basic math, I'd be a stud? Now, if only I could get that damn time machine I bought off craigslist to work...

to be fair, abacus and math are not quite... the same order...

 

you might have a basic math capability and not be able to use abacus

 

note: it's VERY entertaining to give an abacus to modern young adults and watch them puzzled with it trying to figure out how the heck ur supposed to use it, they literally never seen it before and are confused by this instrument with no buttons on it and how ur supposed to use it.

 

but the reverse is usually much better in that an expert abacus user is capable of ungodly speed in calculation that typically can't be matched by anything that doesn't feed the data into a computer automatically...

 

ie: if you try to compete with modern calculator against an expert abacus user, they literally can calculate things faster than your typing speed in the calculator.

 

perhaps more amazingly is that some are good enough they can just imagine the abacus in their head and calculate things that way... and yep... they quite literally calculate things without tools... faster than any other humans.... as we discovered during the Mental Calculation World Cup

So you're telling me that if I was born several hundred years ago and could do basic math, I'd be a stud? Now, if only I could get that damn time machine I bought off craigslist to work...

 

Absolutely. I think you're underestimating the genius of the abacus though.

 

WARNING: NERDY BUT NEAT MATH TRIVIA IN THE SPOILER

 

Spoiler

"By Jove?"

So you're telling me that if I was born several hundred years ago and could do basic math, I'd be a stud? Now, if only I could get that damn time machine I bought off craigslist to work...

... anyone else feel like they're setting the boy up as a good husband, only to have the marriage get called off? :(

Ah, the awkward, blushing, wobbly-mouthed smile of a young maiden in love. Cute stuff, Pariya.

Dammit, all the teasing at the end!

Also jealous Pariya is so cute....

there goes the dere dere~

Pariya is too cute. I'm glad all these arranged marriages are working out.

Soooooo tsundere.

 

But so cute.

Never let this series die...

Since this is nearbyish region, thought everyone might be interested in this video on the Tajikistan bread making by National Geographic.

Holy shit, it's really weird to see a character, that has the same name as me (because my name is kinda rare). (And in manga, of all places.)

Thanks, Duralumin, for bringing us more of Mori Kaoru's great story.  I never fail to enjoy it.

Pariya is such a cutie~

The return to Pariya and focus of embroidery is awesome! That detailed art and the warm feeling is what made me hooked up to Kaoru Mori-sensei works. I'm happy she's back to that. :) Anis story isn't bad, but it's too dreamy and feels unrealistic.

Reading these chapters about Pariya and preparing her trousseau is so nice. It makes me want to find an embroidered tapestry to hang around my room. 

 

Also love the little bits of Amir's quirks and culture being brought into theirs

And thus Pariya is the second best bride, she's close to first but Amir is just to awesome.

I refuse to accept Pariya as second best. But... neither will I except Amir as second.

 

  ALL girl is best girl.

I don't know why but I find this chapter cute beyond words I could use to describe

the first couple will always be my favorite but d'aww pariya is so cute.........>w>

And thus Pariya is the second best bride, she's close to first but Amir is just too awesome.
