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.

Schools

Now that we are here in Egypt and this time for good, we started searching for schools. One thing i noticed from the majority that they dont accept 12 graders and i am now struggling to enroll my son. Another problem facing me is the accreditation; they are dealing with AdvancED and ours is CIS and there’s a possibility that this wont work here. Im stuck here and do not know what to do. Whatever school we go to only want us to pay for admission and interview before they even see our papers. Im fed up and need some guidance from real professionals.

In only five days

I’m here in Cairo Egypt for a very short trip as mentioned before. What can I do in only five days? I can’t see all my family and friends. I came for my cousin’s wedding and now it’s time to see all whom I love and miss. First thing to do was going to Tarnim’s open day at the fifth district early Friday and passed by our new apartment there as well. I saw my parents at the wedding and ever since my mum became sick and can’t see her. I didn’t even get the chance to give her the makeup she asked for. I went to the club twice till now and saw some of my friends and tonight I’m meeting my school mates. We will even surprise our friend lulu with an early surprise birthday as I won’t be here to celebrate it after five days. As for tomorrow I am invited at Eman’s house for a small gathering with her sister and another friend who I didn’t see in ages. Oh I really miss our old day gatherings. However, A member of the family passed away last week and I have to go pay my condolences to his wife and children. I still need to go visit my aunt whom I didn’t get the chance to see last summer. Above all that, my kids have their outings too and I have to coordinate. My god, days run so quickly here and I didn’t accomplish all what was on the list.
