Happy Anniversary Mohammed, I do really like your way in presenting things. I think that this is attributed to your Strategic Planning background:)

I won't ever deny that I have learnt a lot following your blog.

So, just keep blogging and never stop :)

amina said...

Mohaly, this is a day where we all say thank you for sharing with us all these thoughts, fun, feelings, and time of course.

and by the way I like the new year colors as well :)

Omar Rostom said...


Because we are friends long before the blog, and because I know almost all what you do in life I wanna tell you that you are really making a difference.

Your students in AUC say that you changed their lives, many of the people whom you have trained in Egypt or here in UAE keep on applying what you taught them and still intouch with you as their mentor, the companies you have applied your thoughts within succeded, and now your writings are attracting more and more people who have brains and they admit that you are making a positive difference.

Even if you do mistakes, who doesn't, as you u say we should look at the overall, and my overall is that I AM PROUD TO BE YOUR FRIEND MOHALY, and although i am beta3 banat we maleesh fel gawaz, but I really wanna see you with the girl you deserve who will love you and know that she has a precious gift.

Kefaya keda la7san ma3rafsh akalemak :)

Happy anniversary Mohaly :)
I think Omar rostom saba2ny we 2al mo3zam ely kont 3ayza a2ooloh, you are really making a difference and you changed a lot of lives, I regret really that I didn't know about you and your blogs earlier, I really missed a lot, although I'm a new follower here but it added a lot to me and reading your posts became one of my daily habits. I’m really happy for your success.
I agree with Tamer Mokhtar every year many changes are going to happen, in your opinions, in your posts and in Mohaly himself, but all I'm sure about that all these changes will be better and better and always toward the positive direction, and you will even exceed our all expectations, please keep lighting the roads and the minds in the darkness and never stop, me and all your reader will support you. Thanks a lot.

Omar Rostom said...

Saralona, I am sorry, will not do that again.

Elham, thanks for proving my point.

Noblese said...

Congratulations and 3okbal 100 sana. I had to smile at the 1% Switzerland only, we should do something about it.
Congratulations also for the blog's new layout.

nourita said...

Happy birthday Mohaly!

Mohaly said...

Wow Guys, I didn't all this love and respect, I am overwhelmed, and you made it harder for me now :)

Thanks a lot for all the nice, and really fulling and motivating words.

Ola, Gjoe, Shaimaa, Amina: Thank you, I will try to keep it that way, and hope to continue on your top list.

Tamer: Thank you, Will answer you in another comment.

Omar, Elham: This is too much. I am really glad to see part of my mission is coming true. I hope that I can be up to your expectations.

Saralona: Thank you, you are the newest but the positive noise and fun you made had a clear fingerprint. P.S> Forgive Omar :)

Nobelese: Actually I was surprized when I found quite an noticeable traffic coming from Switzerland, but I am glad that MOH@LYICS is reaching out there, and yeah I hope to see it much more than 1%. Welcome to the blog and hope to see your contributions more often.

Nerro, and Nourita: Thank you :)

Mona: Where did you disappear? haven't read anything for you in the last couple of days? Come and join the celebration, you are one of the main stars of this blog.

Mohaly said...


Actually since you asked this question couple of years ago, and I really keep thinking about it every now and then!!

I guess the ideas will definitely develop (not change) with age, and we will start seeing stuff in a different and more inclusive way.

E.g.: My opinions about being single will be valid, because it was always be within the context of being single, I haven't been married before, and definitely there will be development of these ideas after marriage.

What I wanna say is that the only constant in life is change, and the people who won't develop their thinking and ideas after 10 years will be stubborn and will start going backward coz the world is really speeding forward.

P.S. Tamer, I really hope to see you blogging again, I miss your fun and freedom in your blog.

Tamer Mokhtar said...

so the answer is yes or no? :)
sounds you won't commit! hehe

for my blog: i found it more funny to comment on your blog :)
but i'll send you my style posts for your blog, and for sure you have the right to sensor :D

Mona said...

Thank you so much Mohaly for being who you are and for your two year old, M.O.H.@.L.Y.I.C.S, Hurghada born Blog at Spotlight street.

Through M.O.H.@.L.Y.I.C.S, I had a chance to meet wonderful exceptional people who challenged, influenced and shaped my thinking processes on the conscious and unconscious levels, and for that I am so gratful.

Thank you!

Omar Rostom said...

Tamer, actually I do believe than opinions change as well, so there is no direct yes or no for your question, and I am waiting for your fun stuff on this blog :)

Mona, you are -as Mohaly said- an added value to this blog. By the way, you should register as a blog follower as well.

Saralona, What about dinner on the candle lights?

ya Gama3a, Mohaly's grandma is in a very critical state in the intensive care, she is very close to him, I called him and he is in a very bad condition and I think that he is cancelling his scheduled travelling this week. Pray for her.

Mona said...

I am so sorry to hear about Mohaly's grandmother's health condition. My heart goes out to him and his family during this difficult time. I will keep him and his family in my prayers. And please let me know if I could be of any help.

Elham Salah said...

Oh god, Plz all pray to her, as you all know how far Mohaly need all your prayers, I can imagine how far he is in bad condition, god cure her soon Isa.
Mohaly: we all wish her speedy recovery and ISA she will get back to lighten her home soon
