5. Do it differently!

While everybody else will be obviously going for something romantic like the above, choose to do it differently! Go bowling or skiing @SkiEgypt, maybe even some arcade fun @Magic planet, get some take outs afterwards and cruise in your car while playing your favorite tunes. It doesn’t have to something fancy to be romantic, some girls like simplicity, if your is that kind, then choose a casual place where she can be herself in.
At the end, the scenery that matters is her smile, isn’t it?

We sat down with the remarkable Bassel Khayyat, who showed us an admiring fatherly side of his and told us a number of his favorites things. So to all his fans out there, study what we’re about to share next!

When asked about his first thought in that morning, he told us it was to call his house and check up on his wife and kids. Now, how thoughtful is this?
And when asked next about his comfort zone, he said that his family and home are also his comfort zone.

We then got curious about his family members, at which he told us about his wife, his 10 year-old son Shams and his one month baby Izabelle, who we bet is as beautiful as her name.

He shared with us his favorite vacation that he spent it with his family, at Barcelona in a place called Costa Brava. (We googled it, and let us tell you, it should definitely be on your bucket list.)

His favorite food is Italian, his favorite season is winter, his favorite movie is ‘Time of the Gypsies’ and his favorite country, besides his hometown, is Spain.
As for the favorite role that he played, he said Dr Osama in the series The Journey ‘El-Rehla’. We believe it is ours and yours as well, I mean the role was genius and he played it quite perfectly.

We asked him if he could go on a date with a celebrity, who would he choose? At which he smiled shyly then confessed that he would choose Monica Bellucci.
Now, we wondered if Bassel is as adventurous as he seems to be on television, he told us that he believes that anything adventurous that he thinks about doing, he does it in his work and not in his personal life.
In his personal life, he thinks of himself as ‘normal’.

One super power he believes that he has is sixth sense! He says that sometimes his instinct is very strong and is usually right. As for the superpower he wishes to have, it would be to own an invisibility cloak.

The Kardashains, as always, dress to impress. And Kourtney’s 40th bash was no exception, but the one who definitely had all heads turning towards her is Khloe Kardashian in her crystal dress by Kuwaiti designer Yousef Al-Jasmi.

The $6,500 outfit surely stood out among all attendees. Fans, however, had a lot to say about her look and it wasn’t even about the hefty price tag that made them call out over her dress! But rather the striking resemblance between her outfit and Rihanna’s iconic CFDA outfit, that she walked on the red carpet in five years ago.

In an exclusive interview with People magazine, the Arab Designer Youssef Al-Jasmi and Khloe revealed that both the dress and the matching headpiece, are made entirely from mesh and Swarovski crystals!

The dress took only two weeks to create, and costs $6,500. Surprisingly enough, Khloe’s look still faced a lot of criticism.

 “Her look for Kourtney’s 40th b-day last night is giving some serious Rihanna vibes.” Said Diet Prada.

Inji Aflatoun is one of Egypt’s well-known painters and a leading feminist, and today Google honored what would have been her 95th birthday, with a Doodle dedicated to her.

The doodle shows Aflatoun with her canvas of surrealist and cubist paintings, the ones that made critics call her “pioneer of modern Egyptian art,” according to Google’s description of the creative talent.

Aflatoun was born in Cairo in 1924 to a Muslim family that she previously described as “semi-feudal and bourgeois” — her father, Hazzan, was an entomologist and her mother Salha was a French-trained dress-designer who served in the women’s committee of the Egyptian Red Crescent Society.

She was mentored by Kamel Al-Timisani, who introduced Aflatoun to surrealist and cubist aesthetics.

Aflatoun was also driven by her feminist side, that made her join Iskra in 1942, which used to be a Communist youth party, she later became a founding member of the League of University and Institutes’ Young Women in 1945, and she successfully represented the league during the same year at the first conference of Women’s International Democratic Federation in Paris.

Aflatoun passed away on April 17, 1989, one day after celebrating her 65th birthday. Leaving behind her, a great legacy and a name that shall be remembered forever.

In her memory, we would like to highlight some of her famous painting.
