Hi there everyone! I've arrived here in Egypt on tuesday. I stay in ARMA (Malaysian Hall Cairo) at Cairo.. My mom also follows me here. Hihi.
Hmm..my class will start on 6 Dec so this time i'll have some time to take a tour with mother. Hehe,not actually a tour. ^^ On wednesday we went to Hussein and Abuela' (i'm not sure whether my spelling is right or not..haha!) for some shopping. At Hussein there are so many souvenirs,tshirts,scarfs,shawls,carpets,comforters..waa..i bought a shawl and my mom bought two..haha..we also have the chance to pray Maghrib at Saidina Hussein Mosque and visit Saidina Hussein's tomb. In Abuela', there are many winter coat bundle shops.. I bought a shirt and a winter coat for a hundred genih or egypt pound.
The currency here are a little cheaper than Malaysia..RM 1=1.5 LE. But here in Cairo the goods and foods are more expensive than the other places like Tanta. Maybe it's because Cairo is a big city. You know, peoples here are very aggressive when driving. It's like they want to hit every vehicles on the road! The two line road, for them is like a three line road. They drive like they are on their own grandfather's road. Hehe. But, they will not hit any pedestrians, and they are very professional when driving. Haha..so, Malaysian people, don't you think that you are a professional driver before you meet them. ^^
Ah, here in Egypt, people are very enjoying the Eidul Adha merrier than Eidul Fitri. We, MedicMesir students celebrate Eid in Tanta, about two hours from Cairo. We stay in our friends' house (MM's students in Tanta University). Here, we perform pray Sunat Eidul Adha at Istad, a place like a stadium (10 minutes walk from house). But, we arrived late so we only perform pray on the road outside the stadium. For the day, Ummi (CEO MM) made Laksa Utara using laksa kering and spagheti, and very good! Laziizun jiddan! And for the night, MM open house was organised. Gearbox soup, Beef curry, Laksa Johor...Mmmm! All cooked by Ummi.
Any other updates, i'll post another later ya! Ja ne!
