Let’s start our day with a prayer for those who lost their lives and were injured during yesterday’s violent bomb attack in Nasr City, a prayer for Egypt’s safe return, and a prayer for Syria and its people as they await a bigger bombing anytime soon. May all you Cairenes enjoy a quiet, relaxing Friday for a change.  Here’s a few links to help you chill.

  • “When our children are elders their children will call this time we live in ‘the era of wounded dreams’ when systems openly assassinated imaginations.” Wage Beauty hits a chord in our hearts at our moments of weakness & sorrow with this video.
  • Pepsi’s new music mixes are trending fast online and personally, I love sharing anything that includes ‘ELSet – The Lady’ so here’s ELJoker’s new rap mix “Ekhtar Mkanak”
  • Moving on to a topic that involves our health; is it possible that the ‘balady’ toilet we despise was actually healthier than the modern one?! Check out this video and see for yourself.
  • Lastly, this clever ad from DTAC (a mobile phone service provider) in Thailand holds a silent message that will leave you thinking.


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!
