A cute note that made my day!

By | October 11, 2011

My grandmother was admitted to the hospital for an Angiography procedure (Qas6ara). While we were with her yesterday I saw a big lovely bouquet of flowers at her door with the card above. It was from my favorite cousin Abdullah :)

Abdullah, by the way, is a 20 years old ASK graduate who is currently in College :)

Now fess up, how many of you have perfect English handwriting and horrible Arabic handwriting? When was the last time you wrote in Arabic? or read something Arabic? or watched something Arabic -other than zwarat khamees and turkish soaps-?

And dear 3obada… min ygool “wa e7waneh” were added as an afterthought? Wain noq6at el khaa2 :p Thank you for making me laugh yesterday coz, your note made my day wallah 😀

    I can read his message, but didn’t understand. Could you please translate? :)

    Psst… I know how to read and write Arabic, but I can understand only common words that I’m used to! 😀 Weird? I know! 😈 LOL 😆

    I hope she feels better soon , but its really sad to see a 20 year old with this many spelling mistakes in arabic . it doesnt matter if you’ve spent your entire life in English school, arabic is still your 1st language .

      Thank you for your kind wishes.
      I feel sad too but I have to give Abdullah credit for his bravery in writing in a language he didn’t master. At least he tried :)

    about the handwriting, I write is a very nice wild english handwriting but my arabic handwriting isn’t bad at all, compared to my boss who is 30 something. Abdulla’s handwriting is waaaaay perfect.

    Thanks for the post coz and making light of my errors and amazing handwriting:P I’ll have to get you a similar boquet with a card (written IN ENGLISH or arabic for the laughs) for your next Book signing inshalla 😉

  10. Naheda says:

    Hope everything went well with your grandmother. Since you’ve mentioned the spelling mistakes the first word should spell أتمنى” بالألف المقصورة”
    and you’re right the handwriting is a bit child-like:)

    Aww that’s so cute hehe being an ASK graduate myself I however broke the stereotype as I have good arabic and english handwriting I can also now type in arabic slightly faster than I used to before.

    But the sentiment behind the card is what matters hehe it is in fact so sweet and I do wish your grandmother a speedy recovery inshalla she gets better and out of the hospital soon!

    • danderma says:

      You are a rare breed then :p
      Ee he is maskeen! So cute and so brave of him to write in Arabic so my grandma can read it w3liya :)

    Inshallah et gom lekom bl salama ya rab.

    Lol oh god, I’m in the same boat…I swear my little 6yr old cousin writes better than me. It’s terrible :/ even my reading lol I take quite some time to finish a paragraph. Lol it gets even worst when you speak three languages :(

  14. karamilah says:

  15. Marzouq says:

    My arabic has improved vastly because I have to read a lot of documents and paperwork in arabic but no way in hell can I write an essay in arabic! lol! And I genuinely try to improve my hand writing!

    Salamat yaditich mat shoof shar inshalla! Alah egawimha bil salamah!

    • danderma says:

      El shar ma ayeek Allah ysalmik… thank you so much.
      You know ako booklets that you can use to enhance your handwriting, we used to use them in schools back in the 80’s! I am not sure if they are still used or not though :p
