846) Miss Egypt ... Kaman we Kaman we Kaman !!


Why don't we take a break from politics and serious issues, and talk about one of the most popular yet trivial subjects in this blog; Miss Egypt. This is the picture of Miss Egypt in the latest contest that took place in China. I can see that Miss Egypt representation in the International Miss World Contests is getting more and more REVEALING.

Remember the famous post (585) I had here 4 years ago wondering "howa fee eih; what's wrong?" and then again with a video in post (685). I guess my question is still valid, and my lower jaw is still dropping ;)

Mohaly said...

Maryam: 7ad 2al ana za3lan !!!!!!!
da ana mostamte3 :)

but talking about the "swimming" suit, I just wonder what is it doing on the stage. As far as know there isnt a body of water there that requires wearing it .. or wait a minute, ah it is like being in your underwear on the stage ;)

Mohaly said...

sorry, wrong file, updated it ..
it seems that i have them all :)

Maryam said...

I could never understand the point of the swim suit part. They say the winner doesnt have to be the most beautiful of looks, and selections supprt it. I havent been following for many years now, and still think the part with soiree dresses is better.
I wonder, where does this stand from the "islamic nahda project".
Tayeb, enjoy ya doctor. Good change from politics bardo.

Sohad said...

Lol ya Maryam Entee tayeba awee:)) lazem ya 7abity yerfa3o el ma2asat for the evening dress:)) 3'aradhom shareef

Maryam said...

Ya Sohad the measures show, dear :-). Bas ok, ana ha3mel 3abitah.
But i still wonder bardo why haven't i heard any rejecting voices; this time they would have been right, though.

Sohad said...

Shoftee 3alashan 2ntee tayeba bardo:)) rejecting voices here means genuine values, believes and ideology..clear direction for the country..ya3nee Ardogan style:)))

Anyway ..ballash seyasa hena ;)) dee saf7et el masyaf;))

Maryam said...

You are right here. I should have known, bas yalla khalihom yetfarago.

Mohaly said...

karen fahmy and yara na3oum were the most beautiful i guess in the last 15 years.

Sohad said...

Lol.. Sa3b el banat teqarrar:P
El naharda mesh 3arfa leeh, geh fee balee ثلاثي أضواء المسرح

Mohaly said...

A silly question I always have wondered about ... What is the difference between the bikini and underwear?! why is it ok to wear bikini in a public beach and a shame to walk in your underwear, aren't they both covering the same areas in almost same cuts!!

Maryam said...

here it would be a disaster anyway, so i don't think your question is related to Egypt anyway.
if you mean outside, i don't think there are any restrictions for walking in a bikini on streets, however i never came across such a case :-). it might be just that they are organized enough not to do so.

Sohad said...

Hehehe.. Da7aktenee.. It's the same difference between the evening short dresses & night gowns or lingerie..

El 7adota dee kolaha is all about ( material & context ) where to wear.. So the thing is can girls swim with underwearsinstead of bikini in a public beach, the answer is NO 3alashan el material dee matenfa3sh for swimming & not about what's covered & what's not.

Can people wear their swimming suits in the streets Or somewhere else NO, it won't fit in the context or fulfill the purpose..



NAMES said...

The different between Bikini and Underwear, the first is made to absorb sweat. but the second doesn't absorb water :):)

Answering your Q from my view , may be becoz Bikini is an expensive clothe and you know most of girls tend to wear expensive cloth no matter what it covers to get attention to their appearance :)

feeling that my answer wala liha 3elaka be ay 7aga....bas te3mel eih ba2a fi dema'3 el banat :)

Maryam said...

ya Asmaa, dema3' elbanat zay elfol, dear.
i agree with your analysis of differences :-)
not all expensive cloths are beautiful, so are actually ugly, so is a bikini, in my opinion :-)

NAMES said...

My dear Mariam, what i meant here be dema'3 el banat how think this way :) we 3ashan keda ba2ol my answer wala liha 3elaka be ay 7aga logic ye3ny :)

Maryam said...

@ Asmaa, i was just teasing, dear :-)

Mohaly said...

ohhh women ... was that the purpose my question bardo? u r getting me into silly details about fabric..etc

I am talking about the feeling.. for us as guys, you are revealing the same when you are wearing a bikini or underwear .. so why walking proud in bikini (at the beach) and ashamed in underwear (even at a private place).

NAMES said...

Maho there is no logic answer for your question aslan :)

NAMES said...

Mariam...I konw habibty :)

Maryam said...

ya Doctor, actually those who wear bikini on a beach wouldn't feel ashamed in underwear, even at a private place.
and vice versa.
it is the nature of the person and what she is accustomed to.

Mohaly said...

hehe, wade7 enk ba2aleek keteer mashofteesh banat :)

Maryam said...

wade7 en elkalam liah :-)

what i see around me most of the times are not "girls".
rather weird creatures, besara7ah ;-)
what i understand under the nomination "girls" would look differently :-)

Sohad said...

Hehehe.. Very amusing discussion.. Now I can tell why I never understood men point of view men awel marra:))

Ya Mariam I think I twill be hard for us to assume on behalf of them, so the question should be directed to women in bikini.. My mental and emotional capabilities mesh hategeeb el 7al:))

Ana sha7'seyan don't know how women think ! Walla men kaman;)

Sohad said...

Maryam said...

i don't know ya Sohad what to say. things take a horrible way that no one understands.
sad, and shocking. i don't know what to think or how to feel.
everything is so confusing and bad. this is ugly. too ugly to bear.

Maryam said...

to answer your question and trying to take my mind off the events:
the designers, dear, know that many women run after mode and new trends. so it is a good business that never fails, no matters what is going on in the world.
you can say it is the call of life against the call of death :-)

i am not making any sense, either.

Sohad said...

We are not suppose to make sense 7'ales:))) we are suppose to vent 3alashan el 7ala matfar2a3sh " the brain".

I have been so sad on Friday although I don't watch TV, wanna mashya fel share3 7aseet 2n masr wa7ashetnee awee...el nas mesh homa el nas..Walla el shaware3 leeha nafs el 27sas..yet I believe Elle beye7sal beynadaf el kabt Elle kan mawgood..

Keep your spirit up & don't focus on the media or uncontrollable factors. Would love to take you out to have 2erfa bel zangabeel fel darb la7mar one day 2abl el seef ba2a:))

Mohaly said...

Fashion is the non-stop voluntarily slavery of people. "once u pop, u cant stop".

Mohaly said...

womt talk about politics in the post ... as for Muslims and Christians u cant comment there

http://mohaly.blogspot.com/2010/10/723-muslim-mase7y-ana-masry.html

Sohad said...

Hehehe.. No intentions of doing so:)) I am reading post 102) about MR. Egypt.

Maryam said...

Good morning to you :-)
me too, no intentions to talk about politics.

Sohad, sorry for my late reply, dear. i went to bed right after i wrote my comment.
I don't focus on media nor watch the shows since very long now. i just read news lines keda fi elsare3.

one of my cousins is obssessed with getting anything new, even in swimm suits. and i am telling you it has been going on for years and she doesn't stop.
you want to laugh ba2a, when she wants to dispose some old items, among them of course come swimm suits. :-)

Mohaly said...

dont get me started on mr.egypt

Maryam said...

that was fun. i just checked it after Sohad mentioned it.
the reader bo2bo2 is fully right. the pictures reminded me of Lucy's character in the movie.
this competition is still going on? I haven't heard of it for a while now. :-)

Sohad said...

Bonjour ya Maryam :))

Mohaly please don't start on MR Egypt what I saw was really Suck..

Ya Maryam Ana bamoot fee miss. Egypt she represents kol el banat.. Malo el bikini ya3nee.. Anything ar7am men mr. Egypt;)))

Maryam said...

ya saba7 elward ya banouta.

La2, Miss Egypt doesn't represent me, as much as Mr. Egypt would represent Dr. Mohamed.
I don't want to be associated with any of the Miss Egypts throught the years.

Sohad said...

Lol mana I was kidding ya benttee:)


Maryam said...

i know tab3an :-)
i wouldn't dream to be associated with any of them, dol fo2 qodraty :-)

Tenfa3 we nos we talaterba3. Who said the criteria of mr. Egypt is right one to describe a man aslan.
What i meant earlier is i wont compete ya3n i wont enter it aslan. Was never into such games.
Miss or mr.egypt, the true ones, should be completely different.

lobna said...

Hi all :)
Missed u all ....what an interesting discussion....haven't read all comments cause I'm out but to answer ur question Mohaly I would like to point out that z woman who walks on stage or beach in a bikini swimming suit won't feel any discomfort in walkin in underwear if she wishes to ....I guess the answer is related to culture n society values in addition to each person's values n sense of appropriatness.
Of course confident woman or man would feel confident even in a swimming suit !

Maryam said...

Sohad, i dont know how i didnt see your kind invitation before. The morning coffee doesnt work properly these days.
Thank you, rabena yekhaliky. I would love to have a cup of anything with you dear.

Maryam said...

Lobna.welcome back. I hope you are fine.
Thats what i was trying to say earlier.you put it just right.

Sohad said...

Any time ya Mariam it will be my pleasure dear:)
I am stuck in a business meeting at work & couldn't check the old blog & the movie..will do as soon as I go home.

Sohad said...

Couldn't watch the movies, but I stumbled fee 2 other posts :)) mana safert 350 post ... Miss Egypt 2009.. El sara7a kanet different 3an 2012 fee taqadom mal7oz fee masr;))

The Dictionary Definition:

A beauty pageant or beauty contest, is a competition that mainly focuses on the physical beauty of its contestants, although such contests often incorporate personality, talent, and answers to judges' questions as judged criteria. The phrase almost invariably refers only to contests women and girls; similar events for men or boys are called by other names and are more likely to be bodybuilding contests. Winners of beauty contests are often called beauty queens. Children's beauty pageants mainly focus on beauty, gowns, sportswear modelling, talent, and personal interviews. Adult and teen pageants focus on makeup, hair and gowns, swimsuit modelling, and personal interviews. Possible awards include titles, tiaras or crowns, sashes, savings bonds, and cash prizes.

Maryam said...

why am i not surprised that you looked up the Dictionary Definition :-)

All in all i find them wasting of time, effort and money with no sense behind. why should someone be rewrded for being beautiful, if she didn't create herself. and with plastic surgerys she simply "decieved" the judges.
for me, this part has been always the blind following of western, that absolutely has no impact on us.

Mohaly said...

how did i forget to put that link (part 2 of Miss Egypt)

http://mohaly.blogspot.com/2010/05/685-miss-egypt-kamam-we-kaman.html

Maryam said...

what was wrong with her?
I remember the ladies in the episodes i watched didnt walk this way. it was a confident walk with grace back then :-)

Mohaly said...

habla we masekoha tabla

Maryam said...

a habla shouldn't be representing Egypt :-)
we have alot of them nowadays anyway.
yareitha kanet fedlet heya bas

really sad

Maryam said...

tayeb, another question. ma3lesh bear with me a little:
why do you guys find her beautiful? asl we, ladies, have different criteria than you to judge.
actually no one of my male friends was able to answer the question in general.

Mohaly said...

I dont find that walking habla beautiful khales..

plus I am the last guy to ask about typical male perspective in beauty. I get turned off by make-up, artificial hair, strong perfume, gold, pants, and lingerie.. and I am attracted to simple dresses (even overalls), smell of shampoo and lotion, natural hair, and medium to small sized women.

Maryam said...

i was just asking because my male colleagues and friends really have weird taste. ya3ni they find things beautiful that are completely artificial. ya3ni for example one of them finds Maya Diab, presenter of deal or no deal, a faboulous beauty. which i don't understand. for me she is more of a Barbie.

Dallo said...

LOL... you have cracked me up.. thank you
