500) Tribute to .... My unknown family!!

Every 100 post, I tribute the post to someone ...

I was so confused whom I should dedicate this post to, specially after dedicating the last one (400) to my late father!! Then I found out that I want to dedicate it to people whom I have been longing sooo much for ... the only people who have enough impact to change my busy life ... some of the very few people that I can put as a priority in my life even before myself ... people who make me enjoy giving ... people who make me enjoy life.. (ya3nee at least so far...)

I am dedicating this post to my lovely wife and beautiful kids!!

May Allah bless my wife wherever she is (if someone knows, please tell me ;), and the yet un-born kids..

499) Egyptains & Food !

Last week, the Egyptian government released a study stating that Egyptians -on average- are spending 45% of their monthly income on food. 

I was just wondering: Is such a high percentage of expenditure because Egyptians eat too much? or because the income is too low that almost half of it is spent on people's most basic need, Food?!

498) The Soul-Mate; Is it a Myth?!

Why are we always in a search for our "soul-mate"? Did God create us this way so that we don't rest unless we find each other, or is it just a big myth?!

495) Will Egyptians accept it?!

I’ve just realized that the percentage of African Americans in the US is almost equal to the percentage of Copts in Egypt... so the question is: Will Egyptians ever have (or accept) a Coptic President after the US has elected/accepted an African American from Muslim roots?

494) The Two-way Mirror: Watch-out !

Some interesting info I thought of sharing with you especially that the majority of blog audience are females.



When we visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms, etc., how many of you know for sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall is a real mirror, r actually a 2-way mirror i.e., they cansee you, but you can't see them). There have been many cases of people installing 2-way mirrors in female changing rooms or bathroom or bedrooms. It is very difficult to positively identify the surface by just looking at it. So, how do we determine with any amount of certainty what type of mirror we are looking at?


Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is a GENUINE mirror. However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then BEWARE, IT IS A 2-WAY MIRROR! (there is someone  seeing you from the other side). So remember, every time you see a mirror, do the "fingernail test." It doesn't cost you anything. It is simple to do. This is a really good thing to do. The reason there is a gap on a real mirror, is because the silver is on the back of the mirror UNDER the glass. Whereas with a two-way mirror, the silver is on the Surface. Keep it in mind! Make sure and check every time you enter in hotel rooms. May be someone is making a film on you.

493) Obama: The Dream & Reality !

I am not dreaming that US president will care about us, coz it is all about benefits in politics. But I am really happy that Obama won the presidency because he is a symbol of someone who challenged everyone, came over taboos and granted stuff, and was persistent enough to plan and reach his goals.

I respect the American people who had the guts to know that they were wrong for the last 8 years and it is about time to fix their mistake (67% of states voted for change)!

Obama is really an international president, born in Hawaii, has african father, had his childhood in Asia, and is an American citizen.... black father, white mother.... Muslim father, secular mother, and Christian child... it is rare to find all these stuff in one person.

I dream one day I can see in Egypt competing candidates from different parties, among which are women and coptic candidates as well.

Sobort we Nelot ya Obama we 3o2bal 3andena :)

492) Disappointing!

It is really disappointing when you realize that the elements that people considered the essence of your success are the same elements that people take against you after you help them reaching what they want!

491) Swingers in Cairo!

I was shocked when I read that the police has discovered a swinging club in Cairo where 40 couples (Egyptians and Arabs) are members in swapping their wives and "enjoying" each other's spouses!!

The rate of moral deterioration is really beyond expectations!
