5 Habits Egyptians and Russians Share!

Published

on

After the long wait that lasted almost three decades, Egypt has finally made it to the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Everyone is so excited to finally witness our national football team competing against other big football teams in Russia. Many dedicated football fans have packed their bags and getting ready to travel all the way to Russia next month to cheer and support our national team.

Whether you are flying to the Russian land or not; here are five habits that Egyptians and Russian share:

Always Bring Something to the House:

 

We always hear this phrase from our parents “we can’t go visit them empty handed”, and that is true. We never go visit family or friends empty handed; and if we can’t find anything special to bring, we will at least bring some chocolate, drinks and any kind of snacks. Russians aren’t only strong believers in this concept, they consider it rude if a guest shows up empty handed.

Great Hospitality:

We are known to be quite generous people. If we are having guests over, we always make sure to offer them anything and everything; from some endless cups of tea to dinner and desert. Russians are also the same, and it is considered rude if you decline all the food and drinks offered to you.

Applause for the Plane:

Some old habits don’t die! Some people still clap when the plane when it lands safely; so do Russians due to travel anxieties.

Ice Cream x Winter:

Amr Diab sang for it long time ago! We are a nation who wouldn’t say no for ice cream in December. Russians also will go for ice cream even when the temperature drops below zero.

Are you getting off:

So, what is the one thing you always ask other passengers specially in the underground metro? “Are you getting off the next station?” believe it or not, that exactly happens in Russia. Passengers tend to ask one another about their destination due to how crowded their means of transportation get, so they can make a place for you to get off.

Turning the spotlight towards Asmaa and her rising star Lara

Published

As mother’s day is upon us, we have sat down with the lovely Asmaa Sherif Mounir and her beautiful daughter Lara. The interview was a delightful one, and definitely one of a kind.

We took advantage of the nice weather and headed to Grand Nile Hotel where we were greeted with an incredible view, delicious food and a very friendly staff. Everything was catered to our comfort; which made the interview even more delightful.


The first thing that Asmaa shared with us is their morning routine, she told us that they always have breakfast together, and then they might watch something together. It was then that Lara shared with us a heartwarming story of the time she made breakfast in bed. The 6 year old, made her mommy breakfast, because she wasn’t feeling okay. How cute is she?

She then shared with us the thing that they enjoy doing together which is crafting and making DIYs, and as for Asmaa’s free time, she enjoys listening to music.
We asked her about her feeling when she found out she’s pregnant, she said she got really excited about it, and she even remember the movie she was watching when she found out about her pregnancy, and that she immediately called up her entire family to share with them the happy news.

Having both Asmaa and her daughter Lara inspired us to do a small competition, in which we asked each of them a question about the other one and see who gets them all right. While Lara’s superpower wish would be to fly. Her answer of what superpower her mommy would want was just so witty and smart! She said ‘I would say invisibility, because like you have all this attention and you would like some space for yourself.’

Lara’s favourite meal is fries, and Asmaa’s favourite is apparently duck? Well, at this point, Lara was so tired.

We asked Asmaa how she shows support to Lara, she told us that she gives her own space to dance, draw, sing, basically do whatever it is that she wants. She is always giving her the space to let out her energy; this way she would know what skills she has, and she can then support this talent of hers.

As for the things they have in common is the way they talk, their anger and stubbornness.


Asmaa also revealed to us the reason behind choosing the name Lara, she said that she wanted to give her an easy name, one she can learn quickly and no one would get wrong.

She expressed her enthusiasm about having a baby girl, and told us that she has always wished for one, so she can play with her, do make up together, and basically do together everything girly!


Finally, we asked Asmaa to give a tip to all the future mommies, in which she advices them to be more involved in their kids’ lives and to share every moment with them, also to never rush into things, and to enrich them not with money, but through developing their talents, and creating memories with them that they shall cherish forever.

An Open Letter to the Moms Who are Also The Fathers

Published

By

To the mother who was also a father, who took on a role that wasn’t hers to fill but she did anyway, and excelled at it. The mother who wanted to scream and cry, but didn’t have the time to do so, and so wiped the tear and carried on with her mother/ father duties.

She is a woman who showed persistence, who against all odds raised kids who didn’t sense the void that a father left. She is an incredible woman, who stood against societal stereotypes of single moms and widows.

Stereotypes that often tried to break her, looks of individuals that often sting. Whether they are sympathy looks, or astonishment, they always held questions that she never really wanted to answer.

How does she do it?

She must be miserable.

Poor thing.

Well, she is not. She has beautiful children who make it up for her, and how does she do it? Through the power of a mother. That power that pushes her day by day, to keep going, to not breakdown. But let me tell you this, many times she does, she breaks down, she doubts herself a lot, but what truly matters is that she stands up again, every. single. time.

To the mother who was also a father, a sister and a friend. To all the things you have sacrificed for the sake of your kids, and to all the feelings you have kept inside. One day, your kids will mature, and you will be able to share the burdens you hid. You’re raising the kids, who one day, will help ease these burdens.

I know that it is so hard for a husband to leave you, whether he left on purpose, or passed away. It is hard to maintain his role, but trust me, you can. And I know sometimes you think the worse of yourself, that you can do more and can do better, but trust me, you’re doing just fine, you’re doing the very best you can.

So to the mother who was also a father, Happy Mother’s/ Father’s day. You rock your children’s world.
