We’re all addicted to the beach and we all wish we could live by it, but we all also know that that’s almost impossible, so the only way to come even remotely close to our wish is to spend all our time at it during summertime. Being the beach leach that you are, you certainly have come across tons & tons of guys; some you wish you’d spat on and others you wish came up and talked to you. Let’s rummage through the types of guys that you meet at the beach:
1. Brens El Bahr:
“Tab Haleff laffa keda w arga3loko”
Brens El Bahr is the dude who knows everyone at the beach and doesn’t know how to sit with one group. He has his left hand raised up at all times because he’s always waving at someone. His swimming suit probably has Hawaiian patterns on it. He definitely plays a water sport and his tan is permanent.
2. Saffah El Underage:
“Ermy el haga el ma3ak di tafsh, w khod 3andak *Gets stuff out* dah ba2a el gedeed”
This one is always 37 or above. He’s way older than you are, he has a wife and kids that only God knows where they could be. He’s healthy and doesn’t have a bad figure at all. He’s been coming to this place since the 80s and knows all its history. He has friends his age but prefers to stick to those who are way younger than he is. His jokes are sometimes awkward and outdated, but the group keeps him around anyway.
3. El Mosta2zeb
“La ana tamam, rooho ento ana hastana”
He has his own crowd that he hangs out with but at the same time beyheb yakhod corner. He doesn’t talk much and when he does, it’s usually about very specific topics like Indie music and psychedelic drugs. He lets his hair and beard go wild a lot w fag2a beysaykeb 3aleihom w yeshelhom.
4. El Bahroog
“Gama3a, ana gebt kasr kteer 3ashan matetkhan2oosh ma3 ba3d”
It doesn’t matter where he is, he’s going to wear his Aladdin pants anyway; along with his tank top and his vintage glasses. He’s fun to be around, saffeef, goes with the flow, likes to be in control of the music, sleeps a lot and is the first to dance.
5. El Kashkoul
“Ya ged3an balash hezar fi hewar el sunscreen dah 3ashan fel akher hatendamo”
He’s not even used to being on vacation and having a good time is definitely not his forte. Beyakhod ghots saree3 w yetla3, lessa beyelbess trunks w beyerfa3hom lehad soreto, some d-bag always unintentionally breaks his glasses but it doesn’t mater, cause this dude came prepared with another set. He always carries around the best of everything but doesn’t use it that much; the best quality speakers, the biggest floatee, the most expensive shades, maybe even has his own jet ski but unfortunately, he’s always the underdog.
6. El Sha2eet
“Enti hate3meli eih belil?
He always has a drink in his hand, his swimming suit is almost always the right amount of short; never too long so not to be called a shenf and never too short so not to be called sissy. His body is obviously impressive and you can never tell whether he was born that hairless or whether he just shaves it all off. If there’s a hot new girl around, he always makes sure that he mentions the party he’ll be at tonight or the party he’s been to a weekend ago.
7. Hair Code
“Eih dah ento 3amleen hafla men gheiry?!”
He probably came here alone to meet some new “friends”. He says yes to any offered drinks, even if he doesn’t know what they are. He wears a long necklace around his neck at all times. He likes to stay shirtless. Shades always a little too big and he never wants to contribute when it’s time to divide alcohol money.

Will Shooting of Ramadan Series Come to a Halt Resulting In Cancellation of Shows?
Egypt is now facing a lock-down and is under nationwide curfew to limit the spread of the coronavirus, but before this crisis occurred, the annual Ramadan TV series were still being filmed. So the question here remains, with all the ongoing troubles, will shooting come to a halt?
Well, the Egyptian Actors Syndicate stressed recently that there hasn’t been any official decision regarding a ban to film any series so far, but with the ongoing precautionary measures, the situation is constantly changing.
Before announcing the curfew, the syndicate has postponed shooting scenes that require/ include a large gathering of people.
Meanwhile, the Egyptian Producer and Screenwriter, Mohamed Hefzy has indeed suspended shooting of the Arabic Horror Series ‘Paranormal’ as a precautionary measure to maintain the safety of the crew.
On the other hand, a number of Egyptian artists are asking those in charge to actually suspend filming until all of this comes to an end, for at least a period of 15 days! Rania Youssef, Screenwriter Mariam Naoum, and Filmmaker Yousry Nasrallah are all on the same page regarding this issue.
Things are rapidly changing which is of course affecting the media scene in Egypt, and as much as it will hurt a lot of people to have their favorite series canceled, it is indeed an important measure that has to be taken.
From what we know so far, most of the shootings are currently on hold due to the curfew that limited shooting hours, and we’re waiting to hear more from the syndicate…
