Hehehe... 民以食为天 is a Chinese idiom, which means people pay most attention to foods

As a Turk,I think it must be something between %90-95. Only %20-25 of them practise daily I think.
Merhaba!

%99 (yüzde 99) makes me recall the days I was learning Turkish

Unutmusum, Turkce'yi...

Merhaba, you're still good! Don't hesitate to call me if you need any help.

Yes, Turks like to use Yüzde 99 idiom so much in almost anything! Maybe %99 of them use it in every claim they make

Maybe there is more than 5 percent but less than 10 percent non-religious among the people which have ID's that say Muslim. I have an ID that says muslim but I am non-religious. It is not 99 percent of course. I think more than 5 percent population which are from 99 percent population are non-religous.

Turkey will become Iran in 6 years. The country is going that way with Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
