انا مصري بس مش اوى يعنى - الوطنيه


اتهمت من أصدقائي كثيرا بعدم وطنيتي و كرهي لبلدي مصر و كنت أيضاً أعتقد هذا لمده طويله دامت كل حياتي الي الان

فلم اود أبداً البقاء في مصر و حاولت بكل الطرق الممكنه الهروب و ها أنا الآن اعيش و اعمل في بلد غير بلدي بعيداً عن اهلي و أصدقائي المقربين
كنت افكر اليوم في سبب اهتمامي بيوم 30 يونيه و عدم قدرتى الابتعاد 7ن متابعه الأخبار و قلقي الشديد. و اكتشفت انني لا اكره مصر
اكتشفت أيضاً ان سبب محاولاتي هو حب اكثر لبلدي فما يحدث الآن في مصر يؤلمني
انا لا اكره مصر... بل اكره الحاله في مصر... اكره الإخوان المسلمين و محاولاتهم احتلال البلد و اكره الفتنه في بلدي.... اكره الطائفيه و اكره كيف يعاملني اولاد بلدي بسبب عقيدتي.... اكره العشوائيات و الفقر.... اكره الزحام و الضوضاء....اكره انغلاق الفكر... اكره الجهل و اكره التحرش الجنسي... كرهت كل ما في بلدي و لكنني لم اكره بلدي
اتمني ان يكون هناك امل واتمني ان لا يموت شهداء جدد ليأتي دكتاتور اخر مثل مرسي و جماعته الارهابيه


عاشت مصر التى فى خيالى....مصر الفرعونيه....مصر النظيفه.....مصر من دون الاخوان المسلمين و من دون مرسى

Egypt in the hands of Islamists - Why it's essential to get rid of Morsi and his Extremist party

Egypt Morsi

I guess a lot of people are curious about the situation in Egypt at the moment and wondering why would Egyptians want to revolt against a democratically elected president who people chose.
I don't live in Egypt and to be frank i have no plans of ever going back but i still consider myself an Egyptian who understands the situation and who is up to date with news from Egypt.
Do you know that Egyptians wait in lines for more than 4 hours sometimes in the middle of night just to refuel their cars?
Do you know that Egyptians live without electricity for more than 2 hours everyday?
Do you know that people die in hospitals because of the blackouts everyday?
Do you know that Egypt suffers from huge problems with water even though we have the Nile river?
Do you know that Egyptians spend in traffic everyday about 2 or 3 hours on average?
Do you know that 17% of the country’s 82 million population suffer from food insecurity?
Do you know that Egypt suffered a 10-fold increase in armed
robberies from 2010 to 2012?
Do you know that Break-ins in private homes went from 7,368 in 2010 to 11,699 in 2012?
Do you know that the country is run by a stupid president? (if you speak arabic you'll understand what i mean through his speeches)
Do you know that some of our activists are still in prison only because they criticized Morsi?
Do you know that our journalists and talk show hosts are being dragged everyday to court under the accusation of insulting the president?
Do you  know that in a big conference Morsi was attending, some terrorist Sheikh from Morsi's supporters called Egyptian Shias "infidels" and "impures" which led to 4 Shias being brutally murdered and Morsi didn't even mind what was said (regarding some Egyptians that he swore to protect) or even mention this incident in his 2 and a half hour speech a day after?
Do you know that 90% of Egyptians (if not 100%) don't understand the message the president is trying to convey in his long boring speeches?

These are some of the reasons why Egyptians are revolting against Morsi on the 30th of june 2013.

After ousting Mubarak and the national democratic party the whole country was in chaos and the SCAF (superior council of armed forces) didn't make it any better and couldn't control the country and that's when a big gang with the name of the Muslim brotherhood decided it's their chance to turn Egypt into an extremist Muslim country by taking over and enforcing a dictatorship under the slogan of religion.
They deceived the people with their promises and manipulated them using external funding to vote for Morsi who was hiding under the mask of Islam.

Thankfully Egyptians are more aware now. That's why they will take to the streets on Sunday to ask for their right to drink clean water, their right to have electricity since they pay for it, their right to have fuel for their cars, their right to be told the truth instead of lies they got used to from Mubarak and his successor Morsi and his gang.

Egypt is at a crucial point in it's history that will decide how Egyptians live for decades after. 

I'm praying for Egypt and for my family, I'm praying for peace and prosperity in Egypt.

I live in China and i'm not ashamed to say it - Life in the middle kingdom

China life

Moving to live and work here in China is probably the best decision i ever took in my life.

Now some people might think i'm crazy or out of my mind for saying a statement like the one above but i understand it's due to the misconceptions people outside of China have about life here in the middle kingdom.
To be honest i also had similar misconceptions about China before actually arriving here. All the stories i heard from friends telling me how horrible the food is and how hard it is to find any western-style restaurant to eat in.....all the horror stories about how dirty the streets are and how unfriendly and impolite people are.

When i arrived here in China, I found that everything contradicts what i've heard before. Life here is easy, people love to work and they appreciate it so much to the point that one of my colleagues at work came to work and he looked a little bit tired, when i asked him about it he said he just came back from his hometown which is about a 32 hour train ride from here. now isn't that a country you want to live in?
No doubt China is progressing so fast and it will continue to do so because of how committed the people are to their jobs.

Streets are clean and organized and even if some of them aren't then i'm sure within a short period everything will be because here in China they pay attention to constructions and maintenance and they think about every minor small detail.

One example: when i arrived in Beijing international Airport (PEK) i was so thirsty and since my parents always advised me as a kid not to buy any overpriced stuff from airports i decided to just wait but to my surprise i found a cold water dispenser free of charge (which is not available in Cairo international airport for example).
Once i had quenched my thirst i started looking for a payphone to call my friend who was waiting for me and i hoped i would find one that uses credit cards. And again to my surprise i found a payphone where you can make free local calls.
What i'm trying to say is that these people thought of every small detail just to assure you don't have to suffer with anything you need.

Now about the food...I discovered that my friends are all idiots because Chinese cuisine is the most diversified and healthy cuisines in the whole world with so many options and foods to try i can't keep my saliva from running every time i feel hungry. one extra thing is the street food and tasty snacks available everywhere.

People are so friendly and nice although English speakers are not that many but still you can sense the hospitality and the friendliness of Chinese which is a product of their great history 

Living in China is definitely a perfect experience and i'm enjoying every moment of being here.

The myth of a tolerant Egypt - How Egypt became whatever it is today

Yesterday we heard the story of the 3 Shias who got murdered mercilessly by heartless monsters in Giza, Egypt only because they believe in a different form of Islam.

It saddens me to know that in order to be safe and feel protected i have to conform with some extremist group (the Muslim brotherhood) because if i have different religious opinions or political ones that means i'm an infidel and i deserve to be exterminated.


This makes me wonder how this happened? where did it all go wrong? isn't that Egypt that was so friendly and welcoming to tourists from every race and every religion? isn't that Egypt where Christians and Muslims and any other sect were living all together in harmony and peace?

Then WHAT THE FUCK happened?

Now the only answer that comes to my head is the revolution and having Morsi as a president....and it makes sense....a week ago Morsi was attending an event on TV where he invited some terrorists (yes i call them terrorists) to talk about the Syrian crisis...during this Event one of these terrorists said that Shias are infidels.....what i expected is Morsi replying or saying something or even frowning or any gesture but nothing....he was just having his smug smile on his stupid face as if this is ok.


As an Egyptian living abroad (especially coptic) I feel scared to go back to a country where it is ok to kill people based on their religious ideas....even though these ideas are very similar (for god's sake they were Muslims as well).

Say goodbye to Egypt that we once knew and the tourism we once had and any other sort of art or culture because from now on they want us all to look the same and think the same and act the same and if you are different then you should be murdered.


I don't actually have a point to prove or even a message....I just felt frustrated because of what happened and i needed to let it out.

Wai guo ren's behavior in China......The truth about how expats behave in China

Expats in China



I hesitated a lot before writing this post because i know i will get tons of negative comments and opinions disagreeing with me but to be honest someone has to say it.. the truth hurts sometimes but it can't be hidden for long.

It just annoys the shit out of me whenever i hear people complaining about China and Chinese people. i wish it was normal criticizing but it's not, it's more like disrespectful mockery for the culture.

Just some days ago while my friend was trying to read some characters in a bar (just a normal laowai trying to practice what he learned) another man sitting next to us commented saying "oh great, you can read what chicken feet can write" now keeping in mind that the bar owners are all Chinese who speak perfect English, I felt embarrassed.

this is how we are being so disrespectful and impolite to a culture that existed ages before others and this is why some Chinese people try to rip you off and try to treat you differently because we are trying as much as we can to distant ourselves from the Chinese culture and by doing this we make them feel that we are aliens who don't have feelings.


Now if you hate Chinese traditions that much and if you think that Chinese language is just a punch of non-sense then why the hell are you living, working or studying here. Just go back to your clean country where you can read the language and enjoy the absence of these you call "barbarians".

I'm just pissed because i hear my friends complaining all the time about how stupid and uncivilized Chinese people are while what expats do in this country when they are drunk (sometimes while sober) makes me embarrassed and annoyed i'm considered one of those wai guo ren.

We should be ashamed of ourselves for not respecting the traditions and habits of Chinese people. We say we are more tolerant and more open-minded but what we do doesn't really prove it.
