597) Fawazeer Ramadan ::: Faster Lanes!

Why if we are driving in a slow lane and we change lanes, the one we were in will always move faster than the one we are in now?!

595) Fawazeer Ramadan ::: "Om" El Donya !

Do Egyptians really love Egypt?
Is all this crtisism out of love or hate?
Are Egyptians critizing and willing to change and sacrify, or will they jump over the next opportunity to leave the country?
Do Egyptians really love Egypt?

593) Stress, Killing me Softly!

It is sad and scary how stressful life can affect one's health. I don't know how & when I did surrender to stress. But I know that -after tests- I am currently facing potential risk of health problems where I have to take care of my stress levels, food, exercise, and everything to be back to normal.

Guys, it is serious. Stress is a killer, I am now taking it very seriously coz I really don't want to pile up health problems just because I couldn't control my stress. From this moment I won't allow stress to dominate my life no matter what are the consequences. We only live once.

Stress is a biological term which refers to the consequences of the failure of a human or animal to respond appropriately to emotional orphysical threats to the organism, whether actual or imagined. It includes a state of alarm and adrenaline production, short-term resistance as a coping mechanism, and exhaustion. Common stress symptoms include irritability, muscular tension, inability to concentrate and a variety of physical reactions, such as headaches and elevated heart rate.

Enjoy your life, work hard, exercise, eat healthy food, have fun with loved ones, and sleep well. Please take care coz stress is sneaky and sometimes we don't feel it except after it becomes part of our life.

May Allah Bless us all,

592) Honna Al Kahira - Part XXI - 3al Raseef !

Cairo SideWalk (Pavement) has been registered in Genis Records as the highest in the world!!
I do really get provoked of the continuous increase in the side walk heights (if it exists aslan). I see old people and children struggling to CLIMB it. The door of my car is ruined from the continuous pumping into the side walk. WHat is the point of having the highest side walk in the world?!
Ah another thing, why do they change it almost every year?!

591) Being Yourself !

Why is it always hard to be "yourself"?
Why are people looking for being like someone else while everyone can be unique in his or her own way based on his or her skills?
Why are we always looking for what others have and think that if we just have had that, we would have been happy and satisfied?
Why don't we make use of all what we have got first, and then start looking at what others have? I think if we did so, we won't have time to look to others aslan.
These thoughts were in my mind, but were personalized infront of me in this beautiful movie "Teer Enta" that I watched over the last weekend. I have chosen some important parts of the lyrics that really describe what I totally believe in, the parts in dark red do really touch a nerve.

ماتحاولش تبقى آي حد تاني
غير نفسك

دور بنفسك جوه نفسك
متكسلش قوم قلب ودور حتلاقي ميزتك
صدقني حتلاقي ميزتك

متحاولش تبقى حد تاني غير نفسك
خليك واثق في نفسك
قوم دور بنفسك جوه نفسك
حتلاقي حاجه. محدش فيها ينافسك
متحاولش تبقى حد تاني غير نفسك
دور بنفسك جوه نفسك
متكسلش قوم قلب دور حتلاقي ميزتك

الإنسان مابترضى حالك ودايما عاجبك حال الغير
مهما يكون حالتك دايما باصص للتغيير
صدقني لو بصيت جواك حتلاقي ياما كتير
قدرات مميزات إن كنت غني أو فقير

متقللش من نفسك ده أنت بنفسك طاقة خير
حتحقق كل إللي فنفسك وإللي يمسك خليه يطير

إرضى يا يابن آدم بإللي إتقسم عليك
ولوإني عارفك مش حترضى غير بتراب في عنيك
ربك ميز كل واحد منا بحاجه

فالناس تفضل لبعض دايما محتاجه

دور وإلقى ميزتك حاول حافظ عليها
طورها إتميز بيها حياتك حتلاقيها
رايقه وماشيه صح طول مأنت راضي بيها

إرضى بحياتك إنت وإقبلها باللي فيها
ده الرضا نعمه كبيره إحمد ربك عليها
وخدها مني كلمه مافي حاجه بتساويها

لومالكش عازه مكنتش إتخلقت
ولاإتحسبت مالناس ولا إترزقت

588) Sawiris & France .. Tom & Jerry !

One of the first posts in this blog was about this guy, and I still consider Naguib Sawiris as one of the best Egyptian Businessman. He is now adopting the ideology of competition on equal basis. France Telecom wants to take over MobiNil, and we want to take over France new operator. But he has a valid question; will they be credible enough and allow us to fairly compete there ?!

ساويرس ينافس على الرخصة الرابعة للمحمول فى فرنسا..ويسحب كراسة الشروط الأسبوع الجارى
..وأضاف أن تمويل الرخصة التى حددت الحكومة الفرنسية قيمتها بنحو 240 مليون يورو سيتم من خلال زيادة رأسمال «ويذر انفستمنتس» وليس الاقتراض، واصفا قيمة الرخصة بـ«غير الكبيرة».
ولم يخف رجل الأعمال المصرى مخاوفه من التعرض لما وصفه بـ «المشاكل» فى دخول السوق الفرنسية على خلفية الخلافات الحالية حول الشركة المصرية لخدمات التليفون المحمول «موبينيل» بين أوراسكوم تليكوم وفرانس تليكوم التى تساهم فيها الحكومة الفرنسية وتعد الشركة الأكبر فى مجال الاتصالات فى فرنسا.وقال ساويرس: الغرب يأتى عندنا ويستحوذ على شركات ويستثمر، ونريد أن نعرف هل يسمحون لنا بذلك فى بلدانهم.. نريد أن نتحقق من مصداقيتهم فى فتح الطريق أمام الشركات المصرية؟ .

587) El Escort wal Doctor !!

Since Maha couldn't tolerate more of the last post, so i decided to give her el darba el 2adia :)

Omar -tab3an- has forwarded me a website - i wont publish its URL, hehe ;)- that announces sex escorting service, where ya 7elween?in CAIRO! we eih, details el details, nas professional el sara7a, every thing has its own price and most of the girls are from eastern Europe.

Tab3an I won't even discuss the concept and how did it penetrate Egypt! That is an endless story. El mohem, how much ba2a for a day ..... kam, 1000 LE la2 tab3an da yemken el entag el ma7ali, kam, aiwa... 10,400 LE !!!!! (mesh fahem ana eih el 400 LE!)

Tayeb, I am a PhD holder, teaching masters and diploma students in a reputable university, managing consultant and board member in a reputable company, and a reputable trainer in Egypt and arab region.... If I got crazy and asked for this amount in 1 man day of consulting, training, ..etc, It will be akeed the last day in my career... I know that -surprisingly- renting minds is much less profitable (no comparison aslan) than renting bodies, bas mesh keda!

So ya Maha, and all my dear blog readers ... I need your opinion, how should i feel about that?!

Akhokom El Mafrous,

586) A Citizen's Resignation !

Dear Sir,

Please accept my resignation from the "egyptian citizen" position, a position - to start with - that has no job description, no KPIs, even no clear requirements ... A position that also doesn't have a clear accountability or even equality between who does something and who does nothing ... Since I was appointed in this position and nobody hears, repects me, or bothers to know if I am on the right track or not. This has lead to accumulated stress and de-motivation that -in turn- lead to my decision to resign.

I wish you better luck with a better citizen who can fit into your "system".

Best Regards,
An Egyptian National
but not a citizen..
