Sorry for being away

Im sorry for being away for quite sometime but I was in shock after my Uncle passed away and i was busy with my cousins and father for a while. I even neglected my business for weeks as well as my kids. Now excuse me again as i will be busy with my kids for another two weeks for their exams (the governmental ones unfortunately). Then i will travel back to Kuwait. Next month inshallah i will be back and will tell u all details.

AUC Farmers’ Market

Today i had the Worst experience ever. I was one of the first vendors to book a booth in this farmers market event and I was checking by email if anything needed before the event and their reply was “you are good” and nothing needed. Today I went to Gate 3 of the AUC and entered and they didnt have my name on their vendors list and asked me to wait. I waited and waited and then called Tina (one of the organizers) and she promised to call the security. I waited for another half an hour then called her again and she said im still calling security. I then emailed Zander (the main organizer) and got no reply. A guy showed up to apologize and said that its a matter of time and then they will eventually let me in. I waited another half an hour with no hope. Finally the security guy came close to my car and i thought he will tell me that i can pass and to my astonishment, he tells me I have to ask you to go out from the other gate and wait outside in the street. What???! That’s it. This is not professional at all and Not Acceptable. Then I called Tina and she said that there’s an issue and she’s at I dont know who’s office to solve it. I dont care. I got really upset and left and she texted me saying that they didnt approve my food items as they are homemade. I dont want to say a bad word here but Dont you know from the beginning that I am a home based business???

I left frustrated and was thinking of all this humiliation and of my food that will be thrown away. I put too much effort, work, money into it. I spent several days working, cooking, purchasing certain stuff for this event but in vain.

I got back home and wrote on their wall hoping they would reply back with an apology or anything to relieve my anger, but nothing. I received their appology at night after they finished their successful event and their reply was quite normal. The Organizers ofcourse blamed the university and i had no direct contact with anyone there so i will get nothing for what ive gone through today. Hopefuly they read this as i will rotate it everywhere and let everyone knows how the security guys in the AUC treat the vendors unpolitely and disrespectively. Please reblog this or share and help me spread the word.

and another

So last week I participated in an event and i was a bit worried about it. Well it turned out very well and my products were sold out quickly. Good news is the owner asked me to be there every Saturday, so now i can say that i have my corner at Zamalek Market. Im so happy and looking forward to this new adventure. If u didnt get the chance to try my stuff last week, i hereby invite u this Saturday but come early before all the yummies go to other tummies.

Another Farmers Market

So I’m so so excited as I will participate in another Farmers Market and this time its here in Egypt, my country. I have so many strange feelings at the same time. Feeling happy, excited, worried, hesitant, afraid, proud, looking forward because its a new journey. I dont know if it will be the same system here and Im not sure if my products will be appreciated here as they were there in Kuwait. Its a different market and different customers and honestly i have to admit that my products are different too. Well, inshallah it will work out fine and all the effort wont be wasted as well as the money spent. Wish me luck and if you reside in Cairo, pls pass by and support me.

SAT October

So this month is so busy. We kinda settled down a little bit here in our new home, but still the furniture shopping is one step at a time.

My son was studying for his SAT exam for a whole month and was taking private lessons in a centre on a daily basis. Imagine the poor guy coming back from school at 3:30 in tagamo3 and leaving in 10 min for his lesson which starts at 4:30 in Mohandesin and this went on everyday. Anyway, he took the exam and came out with a very bad experience saying that he doesn’t want to take it again. He didn’t do well and I’m not expecting a good score but I had to take it easy cause I know that he was under a huge pressure. He has another test but in Lebanon next month so I want him to feel more comfortable this time. Im giving him a break for a week and start again. Hope this coming one will be easier.

5th Settlement (Tagamo3) We are here

We have moved in in our new appartment in tagamo3 a week ago even though nothing is complete. I have no TV, Sattelite, net, water heaters, no bed mattress for me and my hubby but its ok as my kids entered school and their bus come and pick them up from here. Thank God that they have their rooms ready. Im also happy with my kitchen. But I still need to buy a lot of stuff to really feel comfortable. I come and go on a daily basis to my old appt for our stuff. I guess i need like two months to settle in. But it was a move that needed to be taken anyway for the kids benefit.
