Good day everyone! Rumor has it that today we might be having longer curfew hours. Let’s hope it’s just a rumor! Here’s a few links & reads to pass your curfew time.

  • I’m not sure if this is cute or scary, but these kids seem to have some advice to give about relationships & marriage. Some are quite wise, my personal favorite was: It’s better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them. – Anita, age 9 (bless you child)
  • Once upon a time, there were communities that would be devastated by the idea of a woman wearing pants. Times are now different and apparently, there’s a Facebook campaign called “Hanlbes Fasateen” – “We will wear dresses” that should take place tomorrow, to support the right of women to dress as they please. If you’re interested in joining the campaign, here’s their Facebook page.
  • And while we’re on the topic of curfews, here’s a list of 30 things to do during those long nights at home.
  • If you’re a book lover, you’ll totally relate to this!
  • Oh and don’t forget to vote for Aly & Fila for the top 100 DJ’s of 2013. Deadline for voting is 16/9.
  • Remember little Prince George? If you haven’t had enough of his highness’s cuteness, here’s a roundup of all his photos since birth till now.
  • The VMAs’ will take place next Sunday. Here’s a reminder of the VMAs’ wildest moments.

I am a graduate from German University Cairo. Reading novels is my passion and writing is my release. My guilty pleasures include fashion & playing around with my make-up kit. A couple of years back when I was introduced to the online world, back in 2007; I was quite surprised that in spite of the presence of thousands of young Egyptians who follow the online sphere daily, there wasn’t one site that represented us or our lifestyle. [Later we’d come to see the rise of the political, religion, social-elite, and foodie websites, but still the voice of the average Cairene youth was missing.] I was glad to find out that I wasn’t the only one who had the feeling of the outsider on the internet, that’s why I decided to gather a team to fill a gap & finally find our place online and give Cairo’s youth a real voice that reflects its true culture. I hope you find our site interesting with a new view of life. Besides running the magazine & editing, I write the “Sans Sugarcoating” column, pardon my french, and a couple of other stuff around here!
