Ya Habibi Ya Maulana

Namaste -_'_-

I have met a bunch of new friends here in Alex and they are Egyptians *wink wink* Al-kisah, it all started when all of us (ok not all of us actually, SOME of us) the Malaysian students scored badly in Language test last semester. LOL. So the dean and the vice dean came up with an idea to help us the Malaysian students to learn Arabic language.

Dean: Prof Dr. Maha Abdel Salam
Vice Dean: Prof Dr. Maha El-Tantawi
(No, they're not siblings)

It is very important for us to master the Arabic because later on we will have to communicate with our patients and they will definitely not going to speak english with us. Imagine there's one handsome english dentist who needs to work at Perkampungan Orang Asli somewhere deep in the jungle of Malaysia where the people at that place have no idea on what is English and what is even Malay ? Would the dentist still speak in English ? The answer would be YES because he always have an educated Orang Asli by his side who will be translating his English and the Orang Asli language. Contrary to the English dentist ladies and gentleman, we don't have any translator that is willingly to translate english and arabic here in Egypt especially in the clinic. I mean who would? So by any chance the Arabic is very important beside the dental studies.

* we have reached EVEREST, siap solat lagi tu *

Back to the Egyptian friends, the dean and the vice dean came up with the idea of Egyptian-Malaysian Interaction program where we were having our ice-breaking party on the rooftop at the Faculty of Dentistry. Jyeahhh.. there were many activities and the most important thing is FOOOOOOOOOOOD!

the hall (well this is Egypt! )

During the event, we sing the Negaraku. Touching doh! The feeling isn't the same as what I used to sing back in my school day. This is something different. Tiba-tiba mcm bangga gila-gila jadi rakyat Malaysia. Goosebumps :") Rase nak balik Malaysia pun ada T.T Then the Egyptian sing their national anthem called 'Billadi' if i'm not mistaken followed by this 'voice of freedom' a revolution video. The Egyptians were really amazing. They're wonderful, friendly, awesome, sociable, easy going, and any other good words you could have ever imagine. 4 thumbs up to them :D

Ha, yg ni bukan orang Arab

We even played some games and fashion shows. Both Egypt and Malaysian traditional games. As for Malaysia, we show them Batu Seremban, Gasing, and Congkak. The egyptian games are more to "tampar-menampar" games. Gila kentang! Keghoje nye asyik nak menampor je... Then we have this introduction to Malay language and the Egyptians were really enthusiast to know more and more. Lol, what's the main objective once again ???

SAPA NAMA ? like seriouslyyy???

They were also karaoke session right after the party. Damn, I was lucky enough to represent or should I say to humiliate the Malaysian for reading the lyrics instead of singing. *Fainted* Luckily there were only few Malaysians left and the rest were Egyptians. What a 'nice' first impression to the Egyptians. *Fainted lagi sekali* But after all, they still clap, cheers, and support me. Hahahaha... Terima kasih lah ye my new friends :")

It's FRIDAY, FRIDAY, gonna get down on FRIDAY!
(Rebbeca Nur Al-Black must be proud of meh)

Well the thing is, THAT DAY WAS REALLY A FRIDAY! *facepalm* but here's the good thing, we performed our Asar prayer together :) that's how Muslim role

Alhamdulillah, anak sapa la ni.

this is my lovely vice dean, Dr Maha El-Tantawi
She said 'I will come and smile' and that's what she did :')
