We're Moving AGAIN!!!



YES! We are moving offices again in less than six months but unlike the first time, we are now moving into another building within the campus and not just swaping floors. So since morning i've been packing boxes and cleaning files and backing up folders and bla bla bla. i am still sick with the flu and cold i got in Egypt which is causing me dizziness every 15 min or so. So you will find me packing a box or two and then sitting down to take some breath and to get back to the normal state of seeing one monitor rather than a circular moving room (due to my dizzeness) hehehehehehehe yeah i am having so much fun! i could kill everyone hehehehehe ;) But i am smiling ;)

My stay in Egypt gave me loads of time to think about lots of things. One of which was work and how i should start taking things easily and leave everything to fate and stop panicing with every email and rumour.

Anyway my packing break is over, got to go back to my new gained talent of PACKING ;) IF anyone needs a hand in packing any office let me know hehehehehehe service free of charge, a lemonade with mint drink would do ;)

yalla ciao,

La Langue Française

Bonjour tout le monde ;) Commençant aujourd'hui j'écrirai en français de temps en temps pour hier, après 2 conversations de téléphone, j'ai remarqué que je perds ma capacité à structurer une phrase juste en français. J'ai une prononciation correcte et un accent articulez mais j'oublie la plupart de mon vocabulaire ;(

Donc, la Langue française revit dans ma vie ;)

Merci pour votre patience avec moi ;)

Help Needed Please ;)

I wil be going to Sharm El Sheikh next week inshallah for a week with my bestfriend R. We have already planned and organised our stay in Sharm El Sheikh from tanning, to glass boat trips, to snorkling, to water gliding, to scubadiving, to fishing etc. We have even memorised the names of the places to go to in Ne3ma Bay and what to do and get from there. So as you can see everything is setteled for our stay in Sharm.

But being two crazy people and wanting to explore the Pyramids, the National Museum, Khan Al Khalil, Kahwitt Al Feeshawi , the Hilton & Sameeramis Malls (Lizzardroom), etc. we decided to visit Cairo during our one week stay. I will be needing the advice and help of my fellow bloggers living in Cairo and Sharm El Sheikh in a couple of things.

1) We were given 2 names of Buses to transfer us from Sharm to Cairo (Superjet & Golden Arrow -AlSahm Al Dahabi-). They told us that the trip is 6 hours long and they work on a schedule. So i would like to know if it is safe to travel at night in these buses ? For example if we take the bus that leaves Sharm at midnight so we can reach Cairo by 6 am - is it safe to be on such a bus? or shall we wait till the morning and take that instead? Do you have any idea how much would that cost us? Do you know of any other buses? Do yo have an idea about the schedule? Everyone told us that Superjet was better for it will drop us at Meedan Al Tahreer in Cairo which is like a center point to all the places we want to go to. What do you think?

2) We were recommended to stay at the SHEPHERD Hotel (i donno if the spelling is correct) in Cairo for it is 3 minutes walk from Meedan Al Tahreer which is good for us so we would catch the bus on the way back and not carry all the shopping from the Malls and Khan al Khaleel around. We also have Nile Hilton, Pyramiza, Atlas & Al Nabeela on the list. We really prefer SHEPHERD for it is next to the Hilton and Samiramees's Malls, next to the National Museum etc. What do you recommend?

3) We will be staying for one night in Cairo, So the schecule will have to be: Reach Cairo from Sharm, reserve going back ticket from the Bus Station, Check in the Hotel, Visit the Musuem, crash the Malls, then Khan Al Khalil, enjoy the nights of Cairo, next morning take taxi/bus to the Pyramids, then return to Khan Al Khalil, then Check out, go to bus station for return to Sharm.

Any suggestions? ideas? tips?

Please feel free to leave any tips or comments for they might help a lot ;) Would you recommend anything else? Any special places we shouldn't miss? We can elongate the stay for two days if there is something worth the stay for a visitor ;)

Thanx a lot in advance ;)

U know me?

Let's see how much you know about me ;)

Men Attack Lingerie Shop!


I promised a friend of mine that i would take her to this new Lingerie shop i found close to my house. All of my shopping friends know that i have a weakness for Lingerie and Accessory/Jewellry shops. I don't usually buy the normal ones for i always like weird and unique colors and designs. Anyway i found this shop a week ago and told her about it and since then she was begging me to take her there so i can choose something for her before her husband comes back from his business trip. Anyway, we decide to meet today at lunch for we both have 1 hr break from work. We get to the shop and without even thinking we both stop at the door and look at each other. The seller in the shop whom i bought my stuff from last week wasn't in the shop and to make things worse, she was replaced by that 50ish 60ish yrs old man (owner of shop). Not only that was the problem, but in addition, this guy, who i think is palestinian, was sitting chatting with two guys one is 30is and the other is 40ish. I looked at my friend and told her don't worry just follow me and say nothing. So we enter to this shop and i start showing her around and i could see that all of them were following us by eyes but still continuing their conversation about the case that the girl in the shop had to go for in the court as a wittness. Anyway i continue showing my friend around so i would know what her style is for i need to get something for her that has to do a little bit with her style or else she would never wear it (you know the sales and marketing part). She chooses a couple of things when out of nowhere i turn to find this guy 5cm away from back and peeking from the top of my shoulder to check which product we were looking at. I turn around and give him that "EXCUSE ME" look and he gets the gist. He appologises and says that he was trying to help i said no worries just tell us the prices of these things. He did and he was saying all these stupid things like " this piece sells for Dhs.650 but for you i will give it for Dhs.320. I looked at the man and told him that i was in the shop a couple of days ago and the lady at the counter said that it was for Dhs.280 and she will give it to me for Dhs.210. He jerked back a few steps and then said "she must have been treating you as a regular customer of the shop" and he said no more.

At that point my friend wasn't comfortable at all and she said we will come at other time for we are late and i directly understood the message. She wasn't feeling comfortable and she wasn't going to buy something or anything just for the sake of leaving the shop quickly ... she wants to take her time. So we left the place and told the man that we will come later when the girl is there. He said ok and we left.

I was so frustrated from him. I do not usually care when men are around while i am choosing any lingerie for they are usually looking around for something or just checking the latest design so they do not interfere with me/us at all; but to have a MAN following you and interefering in everything you touch in the shop is really annoying and so uncomfortable. I can't even start to imagine this guy telling us which cup would fit and which size to take and what cut to choose UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH i would have killed him. I usually find it really sexy and nice when i see a man buying his wife/girlfriend or whatever such garments for it shows openness and sharing between the couple. There was even this guy a week before valentine, at one of the Naomi shops who thought it was funny to ask me & the sales lady which of the two baby dolls would we prefer to wear for our partner hehehehehe we actually answered him and laughed about it with him and then left the place with full respect and no hard feelings or bad intentions (he did buy the one I chose). But for someone to interfere in everything we touch around in the shop i thought it was far too much. I really felt sorry for my friend. I think what i will do is go in the afternoon, buy the piece she prefered most and get it for her as a gift to cheer her up ;) This way i would make it up for her coz i've been delaying the shop's visit for a while.

Forgot to say that this is one unique shop! When i went in last week after buying a couple of things from there the sales lady goes like "visit us everynow and then for we always have something new and in less than two months we will be getting lots of toys and accessories" hehehehehehe yeah yeah you can already imagine the shock on my face and the giggles but she was a sweet lady and all i was thinking of was who the hell would have the nerves to ask about the availability of these toys in here for we all know that there is no way on earth to find such things here! We'll wait and see. I am sure my friend will have to come alone if she wanted to get some of these toys for this time i am not interfering in any way or else i would keep on having these visuals of her and her husband NO WAY JOSE!
