Good day Cairenes! Hope you all head a pleasant weekend with this fair weather. As always we’re here to end your week with a bit of entertainment form all over the web. Here’s your dose of what groovy online this week.

Karim Rahman and I never see eye to eye but I’ll have to admit; his article this week is the best description I’ve read yet for our complex love-hate relationship with the big city Cairo.

Why are Egyptians sad? (DO NOT CURSE MY PARENTS) – beware this is a long read (I REPEAT DO NOT CURSE MY PARENTS)

And while we’re on the topic of Egyptians’ depressed state… 

Came across this right after we lost the match to Ghana. Couldn’t stop laughing!

About Mariem El Tagoury

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!
