The multitasking power of Daliah Galal



In our last interview for mother’s day, we sat down with Dalia Galal and her lovely sons Gabby and Younis, but seeing that Younis’s dictionary isn’t yet complete, we interviewed both Dalia and Gabby.
First thing we asked her is what her daily routine is, in which she told us that she barely gets any sleep, she starts the day by spending some time with Younis and then she gets dressed, heads off to the office or meetings, and when she comes home at night to her sleeping kids, she feels guilty and sad for not spending much time with them.
For our usual competition, we first asked Gabby about Dalia’s favorite color which he got right (its black and purple in case you’re wondering). While Gabby’s favorite, she told us, is blue.
When asked about their favorite food, Gabby said his mom’s favorite is pizza, at which Dalia laughed it off and said ‘Yes, one of my favorites.’ But is it your favorite though?
As for the superpower that they would wish to have, Gabby got it right, and told us that it is invisibility, while Dalia unfortunately was cheated the answer, and Gabby’s superpower wish is to be able to read minds.
Dalia’s answer of Gabby’s most used word, is just the cutest thing ever, she tells us that it is actually ‘I love you’, at which Gabby shyly laughed about it and said that it’s true.
We then asked about their favorite movie, while Gabby told us his mom’s favorite is Mickey Mouse, at which Dalia instantly denied and kept repeating ‘that’s not true.’ But is it Dalia, is it really not true? Gabby’s favorite is minions.
The one thing that they do together is music, Dalia told us that they have a band, and with a studio at home, they create music together. Apart from music, she reads to them as much as she can.
When we asked her about her feeling when she first found out she was pregnant, she said that the first time, she was shocked and actually cried; because it was the first baby and it was scary. Second time, she also cried, but this time, out of happiness.
Finally, on how she keeps up with both her work and home, she told us that on weekends, she tries to do nothing but spend time with her kids, and her family. She basically separates completely between work and family time, so when it’s family time, it’s purely dedicated to them.
It was surely a pleasure interviewing all these incredible mothers, who have exerted so much effort to have it all and they did it. And on their special day, we wish them strength to keep up the impressive work.
Special thanks also goes to Grand Nile Hotel for having us shoot at their revolving restaurant, which made yet another perfect location for the shoot.

An Inspirational Talk with The Smile Ambassador Dr Ahmed Al Kaffas




Dr Ahmed Al Kaffas aka the smile ambassador is one of the pioneers in the field of dentistry in Egypt and we are honored for the chance we got to sit with him and chat about his lifestyle that got us to discover interesting sides of him that truly inspired us.

For starters, Dr Al Kaffas tells us that he always tries as much as he can to hit the gym even if he has a busy schedule at the clinic, and if he has the time to squeeze in exercise then we absolutely have no excuse to skip on workouts!

Also, we found out that he is a food lover who is loyal to our very own Egyptian cuisine! I mean oriental food is truly the best, what with the Molokhey and vine leaves, which are his favorite dishes.

When asked about his favorite actor, Dr Al Kaffas revealed to us his inner cinematic geek and told us that he enjoys the plot as a whole as well as the music and scenario of the film and so he doesn’t really have a favorite actor in specific.

‘I can’t imagine being in any other field other than dentistry, but if I have to choose then I think I would have went for business school instead’ he said when asked what he would have been if not a dentist.

According to him, social media has become a very important part in any profession and he himself find great interest in it.
The worst comment you have ever received on social media? His answer to that was ‘You’re too young.’

As a doctor, he encounters great deal of pressure and when we asked how he deals with it, he told us that he would shut off his phone and stay at home with his boy where he finds comfort in his company.

He tells us he respects the competition but that he is always prepared with new technologies to offer and a well-equipped clinic in order for him to stand out amongst other competitors.

When asked about his favorite part of the day, he showed great passion to his career by telling us that his favorite part is spending time at the clinic where he finds comfort in what he does best, not only that but he also tells us that seeing a patient satisfied and happy about his smile, gives him so much pleasure and faith in what he does.

Are you a risk taker? Dr Ahmed says he is not because he likes everything to be organized and planned, and that the craziest thing he has ever done is following our national team all the way to Russia for the World Cup and leaving everything behind.

What makes us different is that we love what we do and we like our results to be different than others’ and to offer the highest standards in dentistry.’ Dr Al Kaffas said when asked about what makes the clinic different.

For those of you who don’t know, Dr Ahmed Al Kaffas was awarded Dentist of the year 2019 in Insight magazine, and when we asked him about the award, he said: ‘I don’t really take titles into consideration, because what truly matters is the satisfaction of patients and delivering them with the treatment they deserve and to always exceed their expectations.’

Now that was one truly inspirational interview of a man who is multi-talented and very passionate about his work and keen on the comfort of his patients.
