Another dose of questions..


And the cycle of questions keeps spinning.. I never was into this “chain-post” thing, but when people ask interesting questions, you can’t help but answer ! 🙂

Here are Better this way‘s questions..

1. What book are you currently reading?

Again.. “A thousand splendid suns”. But if you mean medical books, then it’s “Basics of dermatology”!! 😛

2. If you could live in any country/city in the world, which would it be?

Let me think.. I’ve always wanted to visit Paris, but not that I want to live there. I love Cairo where I live now; it’s crowded and noisy, but I love it! My second favorite place is Abu Dhabi.. 🙂

3. If you had three wishes, what would they be?

Endless faith, endless patience, and endless wishes perhaps??! 😛

4. Blackberry or Iphone?

Neither nor!! What’s wrong with Samsung or Nokia phones?! People blindly follow the trend, but I’ve never been that trendy!

5. What’s one thing that you can do really well?

Writing I guess?? Or If not, I’m a professional procrastinator! 😉

6. Harry Potter or Twilight? (you shouldn’t even have to think about it).

HARRY POTTER!! And yes, of course I shouldn’t think about it; Twilight actually stinks, I’d never like a shiny blood-sucking creature, even if it was “Edward Cullen”!

7. Name one song that could be the anthem to your life right now?

I’m not that into music, so honestly nothing is on my mind now. You can pick any song about moving on and hoping for the best.. 🙂

8. If you could meet any famous person from the past, who would it be and why?

That would be the prophet Muhammad (PBUH).. If he was here, I’d want him to rule the country, for the people in charge now have turned everything into chaos!

9. Favourite movie of all time?

You’ve got mail, also the Arabic-dubbed version of A bug’s life, it’s a lot more hilarious! 🙂

10. If you could spend the whole day doing just one thing, what would it be?

It depends, sometimes I can spend the whole day writing what’s on my mind, sometimes facebooking and tweeting, sometimes just sleeping, and sometimes literally doing nothing!

11. Who in your life inspires you the most?

My mother. 😀

Memorizing freedom..


In the memory of Jan. 25th revolution, and restoring the revolutionary spirit of Tahrir square, I re-blog this post… I know it’s been near a month since I last blogged, but it’s a long story, I’ll tell it later on, when I get a chance.. Enjoy the lyrics!

Hey you, the “square”...

The “square”..

This song; “The square” or “Ya el medan”, sung by the band Cairokee, portrays a common Egyptian perception about El Tahrir square and its role in the revolution. I won’t talk much, I’m leaving you to its plain-spoken, wholehearted lyrics..

# Song description:

“Egyptian anthem about Tahrir Square by Egypt’s leading revolutionary band, Cairokee featuring Egyptian singer/songwriter Aida El Ayouby.”

# Here’s the video, with English subtitles:

♩♬Spread your wings!♩♬



I’m not that into music. However, I’m so into positive and uplifting songs..
“Spread your wings”, sung by the Egyptian band “Cairokee“, is one of those songs, it’s been echoing inside my head for a while, so I thought of translating and sharing it. The lyrics are no longer rhyming after translation, but still, I find them very meaningful! The song was even used in Coca-Cola’s ads.
Special thanks to my friend “Khlood” for helping me pick some of the words. Here we go:

You’re all what you dream,
you’re your only hope..
And everything you’re looking for,
is inside you calling..
Let go of the past,
and write your own book..
Awaken your sleeping dreams,
shout and say what’s inside you..

Spread your wings,
and fly in the air..
Your ceiling is high,
up in the sky..

In the moment of your silence, think.
And inside yourself, search.
Draw, paint and photograph,
open your heart and lighten up.

Your way isn’t so far,
believe that you’re not on your own.
You’re every brand new thing,
now certainly is your time.

They always will try to move you away,
shut your eyes and pull you back.
They want you to live and to die,
as if you never existed..

Spread your wings,
and fly in the air..
Your ceiling is high,
up in the sky..

Here’s Coca-Cola’s ad, the song’s a lot lovelier with those kids singing. I assume you’ll like it despite the language… 🙂
