I noticed that the number of approved comments have recently approached 995x… which means that a few more comments and i will get my 10,000 comment! Ten thousands!
I believe it’s a cause for celebration… so i have decided to award the owner of the 10 thousand comment a thank you gift for taking the time, reading my blog, and caring enough to contribute their comment… the gift will be a $100 Amazon.com gift card to be sent to the commentor’s email immediately
However, comments of the type “lol” or “hehehe” or “thanks!” or “:D” won’t do! The winning comment will be a real comment… and the count down begins NOW…
P.S. The comments on this post are off
It was late 1991 early 1992 maybe… we had just come back from London after the liberation of Q8 and adjusting to life in Q8 when one day my cousins where asking their mother to take them to a *new amazing jm3iya* called *jm3iyat el rotha* that was *unlike any other jm3iya around* and that they wanted to buy *yananwa*!!!!!!!!!!
Yananwa?! Both my mother and aunt Read more »

After yesterday’s post regarding cutting nails at night, i began thinking of all the superstitions we believe in around here and whether or not they have a logical explanation?
For example, at home some of the superstitions we have is if you rub one of your eyes Read more »

For as long as i can remember… we were warned by every one around us against cutting our nails after night fall…
I know for a fact that it is Sunna Nabawiya 3n El rasool 9la Allaho 3laiho wa salam… but why?!
Whenever i ask that question… why? I never get any answers… whenever i ask the qeustion “what will happen if i do get my nails cut after night fall” no one answers me… every one looks away, or simply answer “mo zain”… ok shino ele mozain bel mawtho3 i want to know?
What brought this on is that i have read recently that in the phillipens they believe that if you cut your finger nails at night something bad will happen to you!!! What a coincidence? Or is it a coincidence at all?! How come they believe the same thing? and what bad thing? and why a bad thing? and why the nails but not the hair or body hair? eshma3na el nails?!
Do you have any idea why we are not supposed to be cutting our nails at night?!
Some people are givers by nature… if you tell them i like this your ring they would take it off and give it to you. Most people would lend you stuff they can part with like DVDs, Books, Scarves, Pens, etc.
Other people are so overprotective with their stuff they would lend you ZELCH! I had a cousin who wouldn’t even let you touch her toys or play with them when we were little… i remember when we complained about her behaviour to my mother and aunts they would go “Flana ’3arath.ha 3zeez” meaning that she would not allow someone to touch her stuff nor lend anything to anyone!
I personally offer books and dvds if i see someone who would like them. So many times have i lent people stuff and they never returned them a couple of books i like are gone with the wind now and i have given up hope for their safe return so i will have to replaec them eventually… Maybe if i didn’t lend anyone anything in the first place this wouldn’t have happened!? I wouldn’t know how to open the subject with who took them i feel china fashla…
I also lend clothes and bags and watches and jewellery to my mother and sister (only!)… but that’s about it… i always say i am going to stop lending people stuff and i end up lending them anyways… it’s easier if you have your stuff around you and never let go?!
Do you lend people your stuff?! What do you lend people if you do?! Do they return them back?!

One moment i was happily posting, checking stats, and replying to comments…
The next i am locked out of my account witha Forbidden Error…
Hours later nothing worked except reinstalling wordpress and losing all my work! I now have recreated the new blog from scratch while losing all of my posts and comments for the day :`(
Chinha 3ain ma 9allat 3la el Nebee! Now this is a tip for you… for the rest of your lives if you are allowed to change something on your blog… DO NOT TOUCH THE PREMALINK!
you have been warned!
The first day of my diet has started! I woke up anticipating my box of food would arrive before i got out to work but it didn’t so i had to have breakfast on my own this morning… Read more »
I signed up for the silver subscribtion of breakfast + lunch + dessert for two weeks. It cost me 79 KD
All i had to do is phone them up, they faxed me their silver two weeks plan menu… they had TONS of things to choose from, and for the daily main dishes there are more than one vegetarian option and they are all mouthwatering. I chose what i wanted without having to see a dietritian and take a blood test and wait and be weighed and all that hoopla! Within 5 minutes i was ready to subscribe and start my diet and they offered to send me their mandoob to take the menu and the money but i have decided to make the trip my self and pay them my self…
The variety of food is great. The ease of subscribing is fascinating, i made a decision on the whim to subscribe and that’s it… no fuss no mess… all i have to do now is wait for my lovely package to arrive and start the diet process (after i finsh devouring those digestive biscuits for breakfast… they ARE low fat!)
I will be making a photographic diary of my Diet on daily basis and posting about the dishes i recieve. I am supposed to recieve lunch today (Koshary + Salad + Om Ali) and breakfast for tommorow (pancakes with maple syrup, fruit kebab, and fruit yoghurt) … i cannot wait
The poll on the new theme is now closed with 60% of voters liking the new theme… i would say it passed
Now for the next few days i might be a bit slow on posting since i would be spending my time trying to customize my theme and make it more *me* and change some stuff here and there, add some cool plugins… by the way this theme is a FREE wordpress theme that can be used and customized by anyone and you might have seen it somewhere else before… it is NOT specifically made for me and i do not posses the ability to build themes from scratch (yet!)…
I am still playing around with the new theme and trying out stuff… i think it looks pretty good but needs a bit of tweaking here and there…
Now check the new theme out by clicking the picture above to enlarge or by going to the new site (click here) then please come back and click the poll below to let me know if you like it or not.
By the way when i am done with the new theme and i officially open it i am having a big lovely surprise for my readers… kinda like a home warming gift
Stay Tuned and help me out by giving me your opinion… the sooner i am done the better :D
I am tired of feeling fat andbarrell like… i am looking in the mirror and i am NOT happy!!! Recently i have gotten too comfortable around food consuming and craving all kinds of sugary fatty concotions!!! I have decided to make each day in 2011 count and worthy… there is only one 2011 to live in this lifetime… Mo?
So i have decided to cut out all the unnecessarily sugar/flour/fat from my life and join a diet program -after i wash down my Starbucks blue berry muffin with a tall caramel macciato that is-. Currently i have decided to go with Regime Bu Gowa6ee as q8ys call it… I am thinking of subscribing for a breakfast/lunch deal for around two weeks and i am choosing between Lo Fat, Diet Care, and Diet Center… Hopefully it will help me keep my food balanced for the next two weeks so help ease me back into my regular more restraint diet and if i see it’s beneficial i would extend it for a month or so…
Have you tried Lo Fat, Diet Care, or Diet Center before?! What do you think of their services?!
I’ve bought my own private domain… www.danderma.net!
I waited forever to acquire www.danderma.com bs Allah ma ketab Ham .net 7elo ma feeh shay… now my old domain danderma.wordpress.com will point to www.danderma.net… ooh have i got a lot of tweaking to do!

P.S. Last line reminded me of Um Mit3ib Allah yathkerha bel khair :*
One thing to make sure is in your luggage and make sure you never board the plane from Heathrow without is the Harrods cocoa dusted almonds! They are so addictive! You would pop in one almond after the other and savor the chocolaty taste… the chocolate is good… the chocolate powder on top gives the almonds a lovely feel on your tongue and it is so very good <3
Highly recommended on your next trip to London!
The other day we were talking about marriages in q8. Particularly about couples moving into a wing, apartment, or a floor at the in laws residence… when a matter i found confusing arose…
Many Q8ys build apartments in their houses for their sons to move in when they get married especially considering the current state of exaggerated rental rates in the country. Nothing strange there.
What’s strange though is that when a woman decides to start looking for a bride or actually finds a bride, she decides that preparations for his sons marriage includes furnishing the whole apartment with her own taste and all he has to do is marry a woman, bring her to live in his already furnished apartment and expects her to live with him happily ever after!
I was aghast at the idea. Starting my life in a bedroom and a living room that i didn’t get to choose? That his mother chose for me?! Why?! For gods sake the apartment is theirs but it should be furnished according to MY TASTE as i am the one going to live there!
People once chewed a girl for insisting on refurnishing the apartment according to her taste. I thought she was right in her move and that the mother in law was being inconsiderate & selfish getting angry at her daughter in law yet others thought i was deluded?! That furnishing the apartment was a great and very generous thing to do and the wife should have been grateful!!!! Another girl i know thinks who cares? It’s not i will live there forever let the mother in law furnish it as she pleases… i am confused here… am i the only one who thinks it’s the wive’s absolute right in furnishing her apartment according to her taste? Not the kitchen or the bathroom per say but at LEAST the bedroom?! Especially considering the 90% of Q8y ladies think that Louis XIV style furniture is the way to go while i strictly hate that style and prefer modern?!
My late mother in law heard i was saving for a Kenwood Major system so she bought me a mixer system in another brand that was fine but i couldn’t keep it for one second in my kitchen and i exchanged it and paid extra for the Kenwood Major i wanted… and that was just a mixer!!! How can anyone live in a furnished apartment and stay there happily when they get married is beyond me…
Would you stay in an apartment at your in laws furnished entirely according to your mother in law taste!? How so?!
