لا

لا تبح لهم بسرنا
ولا تشاركهم أحزاننا
لا تخرج عليهم ودموعك في عينيك
ولا تحدثهم وصوتك راجف كما ترتجف يديك

لا تخبرهم كيف تعذبنا
ولا تشاطرهم ويلاتنا وآهاتنا
لا تبتئس من حظك البائس
فهو طريقنا
لا تخبرهم
هذه حياتنا
أسرارنا

لا ترهم جروحنا
ولا تجعلهم يتحسسوا دفء ذرفات دمائنا
التي جفت
وسال الخوف بدلا منها

لا تجعلهم يشفقوا
علينا
لاتدعهم يضحكوا
علينا
ولا تجبرهم أن يولوا هاربين
منا
وكأننا نحن النحس
وكأنك أنت الشؤم
وكأنني أنا المرض
ومعا، كأننا نحن الموت
الأسود، المخنوق، القراس، الهاجس

لا تقل لهم كم هرولت بنا ساعات أجسادنا
إلى الهرم، إلى الأرق،
إلى آلاف الأميال من الزحف
نحو الأمل

لا تقل لهم عن قلبي عندما خفق
ولا تشعرهم به عندما صمت
ولا تسمعهم إياه عندما طغى عليه الصدى
ولا تلفتهم إليك وأنت تهذي في الظلام من الأسى

نحن لسنا لهم
نحن لسنا منهم
ولسنا مثلهم
سنمضي كأننا معهم
ونهرب منهم
تاركين لهم أجسادا،
خاوية من حياة كحياتهم
ترتدي لباسهم
وتشرب مائهم
لكنها تدرك مدارك لا حيلة بها لهم

امشي معي
يدك في يدي
في ذلك الإتجاه
أينما تبدأ السماء
اصعد معي
على درج المجد والعلياء
على درج الخلود
اخطو معي
هناك
في الأعالي
أينما تشع النجوم
إلى الأبد
وتسموا أرواحنا على غير مضد
هناك
أينما تبدأ الحياة
هناك
أينما لن نجد متسعا قط للألم

BODYCOMBAT™ 64, This Piece Of Steak Is Well Done!

That is the release you want to introduce to your new members! Why? It’s full of great moves & great music, also it’s very easy to follow since the choreography is very repetitive, which will help them find it easy to understand and break down!

  • Track 1: Upper Body & Lower Body Warm Ups (Freaks/Can’t You See)

The coolest music for a warm up will be found here! I still get goose pumps every time I teach this track! There is a lot of basass attitude in it! I love the upper body warm up a lot, members do really get the moves in it and feel pretty much engaged.

As for the lower body warm up, I’m thankful for all the slow and fast side kicks here, that really helps with fixing the technique of this tricky strike! The music is just perfect!

I can say that all in all the warm up is literally a warm up here, really sets you ready to go!

  • Track 2: Combat 1 (Tae Kwon Do & Kick-Boxing) (I’m Shipping Up To Boston)

Hey yey! Jump Kicks are back, the best way to get really fit and feel the work out. It’s a relatively short track but truly fantastic to increase your fitness level! It’s important to try all the options offered in this track!

  • Track 3: Power 1 (Boxing) (You’ve Got The Love (Breeze & Modulate Remix))

That’s a 07:30 minutes track, cardio cardio and more cardio for you, awesome conditioning track for the upper body, ABS and lower body! Love this track, it’s crazy and easy to follow. What I like in this track is the different levels of intensity that one can get to, high repetition will help you learn how to increase or decrease your workout intensity.

  • Track 4: Combat 2 (Tae Kwon Do) (Blast Off)

This track is divided into 3 rounds, The first and the last is basically made to fix your side kick technique, balance and lower body strength. The middle round is made of push up, which will help you increase your endurance and polish your body conditioning. This track will kill you! I promise! it’s very powerful and very demanding!

  • Track 5: Power 2 (Boxing) (Hot Right Now (Jag Skillz VIP Mix))

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is what it is all about! A lot of upper cuts, different counts, different durations and different energy levels. You will experience the coolest sprints, also different durations and you are the one to decide the intensity! A very great track to increase your fitness level! Love this one, it’s all about cardio!

  • Track 6: Combat 3 (Mixed Martial Arts, Capoeira)(Black Widow)

When you hear Capoeira get your legs ready for a serious workout.

I like this track for 2 main reasons; the 1st is that it’s easy to remember and follow, members enjoy what they can remember. And the 2nd reason is that it is a great workout, a lot of conditioning is in there. This one will help you get your legs stronger and more balanced. If you have knee problems try to always take option 1! But if you want to challenge yourself go on and try all the jumping lunges!

  • Track 7: Muay Thai (La Nina Mechanica)

This is 8 minutes of madness, a lot of elbows, a lot of knees, and a lot of running man! I love the push kicks in the track, I adore the music and the feel in the track; a lot of power, aggression and elevation! You can always take it easy until you get used to it! True fighters will go on till the end!

  • Track 8: Power 3 (Boxing) (If You Surrender)

3 rounds of cool boxing! Jabs, hooks, upper cuts, running and scissors. The last 6:30 minutes of the workout will feel amazing as you finish with a lot of single jabs! A total of 256 punches in this track! Your arms and shoulders will burn! Love the sensation!

Wiko Highway 4G, Review “A Very Fast Trip, A Very Bad Trip”!

WIKO HIGHWAY 4G

This phone looks fabuliuos, it comes in nice colors; black, white, orange, purple and blue. Its Powered by a 2GHz quad-core NVIDIA® Tegra® 4i processor, the HIGHWAY 4G is the most powerful 4G smartphone, it is fast and easy to use. Running Android KitKat, it has a 5-inch Full HD display, which makes you enjoy viewing things on it, the colors happen to look magnificent through it. The 16-megapixel main camera and 8-megapixel selfie camera are both of exceptional quality, providing total satisfaction.

But here is the thing, if you are planning to buy something and kind of invest in your money, avoid buying a phone that has a bad-made hardware. 1 month after I bought it, the back camera broke, I was surprised to see the outer glass cracked, and replacing requires a new camera and a new back cover, since once it’s opened from the back, the whole back cover is to be changed, bad idea? Yes! To me as a user that’s a very bad idea. I don’t remember the phone calling in the 1st month of usage. Fixing that needs around 200$, if I doubled that amount I could buy a new phone, something like Sony, Samsung or maybe some HTC. I’m not saying Samsung is doing well, unfortunately it is not.

Anyway, so 4 months of usage results in a loose in the charging spot, electricity doesn’t reach to the charging spot unless the phone is held of laid in a certain way to receive electricity, defect? Yes! A big one for me, because even the worst phone didn’t do that to me, among all the phones I used, I never faced such a problem. And of course this one started gradually, now I’m actually while writing this review, trying to charge it by holding in a certain way, and it’s still stating a low battery, I can’t switch my phone on.

All the beautiful features are going to be very minor next to a bad or a poorly made and designed body, it got a bad rating from me to be honest!!!

Please, do not commit a mistake and buy a Wiko phone at all, my advice and the rest is up to you.

To The Most Amazing Man, After Father!

2014 In Review!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 14,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

I want the whole world to see this clip, because it’s truly expressive and genuine. Be careful what you wish for, not everything you see is what it seems like. Be grateful for what you have, and more important, be grateful for what you don’t have!

You need some money exchange service? Avoid Samhouri Exchange!

Alright guys, I really don’t like to do this, but I’m pissed off and I’m forced to tell you how awful Samhouri exchange company is.

I had to transfer some money via Western Union to a person in Dubai, UAE. Unfortunately I did that by going to Samhouri exchange, Mecca Mall branch, Amman, Jordan. The first attempt failed since my friend in Dubai couldn’t collect the money because his passport was with the authorities to get his visa and work permit since he moved there recently. So I changed the name of the receiver to another friend, which happened a few days later, the second friend didn’t go collect the money, since as he said was busy, although when I asked him if he could help me he confirmed to be the one to do it. I had to change the name of the receiver again, you so so far I had to go to the exchange office three times, so my last attempt was yesterday, and the girl who works there confirmed that it has been changed and that my friend can collect the money in half an hour. So I contacted my friend and told her she can collect the money, gave her the transaction number and everything needed.

Today morning my friend called me to tell me she couldn’t collect the money, because the transfer doesn’t have her name on it! I was pretty surprised. And thought great! That could mean that my second attempt to change the name also didn’t happen.

The girl who works in that branch is rude, and has an attitude, I don’t know who hired her, she deals with customers as if she is forced to do the job, and her attitude is that of a person who thinks others’ people’s life depend on her.

I was surprised when I went to change the name the third time when they told me the system is down, and I decided to be patient about it, since they said come back tomorrow. So basically I went there 4 times in total. When I went the 4th and the last time, they still said the system is down, and then I asked them to do it from another branch, or find any way to do it, or just let me withdraw the money to do it from another place, but they confirmed that everything will be alright in 30 minutes.

Now if you ask me about the customer service in my country, I would say: WE HAVE NOTHING CALLED CUSTOMER SERVICE. We only know and hear about it, but we don’t get to experience it. I can tell you so many stories about our bad customer service, about money you pay to get a bad service and a bad treatment. And it’s very strange in case of money exchange companies, for one reason, to me at least, we have been having them since the day the oldest streets in this country had been paved.

And funny enough, the only way to get your things done in this place is to scream and shout and talk to people in higher positions to complain, only then, really only then you get what you paid for, added to that your wasted time and nerves.

To the girl who works there, if she ever reads this, darling go home and give a chance to people who really need the job.

Usually and normally such services, as money transfer, occur and happen in the same day, but Samhouri Exchange is not interested to transfer your money. Please avoid this company no matter what your circumstance is.

The Bad Boss!

Bad Boss
Bad Boss

We all have seen, met and dealt with The Bad Boss for sure. But the idea of The Bad Boss itself bothers me sometimes, and because it does, I want to bother it in return.

The Bad Boss is usually a person with an awful personality, like they don’t know what they exactly want, now they are your friends and tomorrow you are their worst enemy. You can never tell how does The Bad Boss look at you or see you. So the moment you discover that you have The Bad Boss around I advise you to be wise.

I have also noticed that The Bad Boss is usually very unqualified for their position, not very unqualified but rather severely unqualified! They got the job because they know someone in that firm who was a strong connection, or because there were no other better options, or because someone qualified has a bad relation with the highest management and so they don’t wanna give the job to the qualified to piss them off so they give it to the The Bad Boss.

The Bad Boss usually can’t make the right decisions and sometimes can’t make any decision at all, why? Because they don’t have the smart experience to know what is good and what is not, and usually they take decisions that serve a personal matter.

As I mentioned before The Bad Boss usually has an awful personality they have big ears, they don’t have their own professional opinion about things, probably because they are not sure what to think, and so they like to listen and adore followers who gossip a lot, hoping to get some useful information, but we all know that it’s a bad attempt. Hey! Because The Bad Boss has big ears they also take everything personally! Not professionally! If you want to judge someone’s work for example you can go check them working, or see their reports, but when you want to love them or hate them you have to listen to what people say. Besides the followers will tell The Bad Boss only what serves them as well, even if that was against everyone else.

The Bad Boss is a very bad time manager as well. You wanna waste your time at work? Work with The Bad Boss! If some task usually takes you 10 minutes The Bad Boss is a very talented person in wasting time, because they either don’t know any better, or they think if they made the task take longer time it will seem more serious and more important.

If you think you are not good at what you do stick to The Bad Boss, because The Bad Boss likes to support losers, they never support successful people, why? Because losers aren’t competitors to them while successful people may one day rise above them and take their positions, they worry, they are not confident to let them shine. If you are a successful person with ambitions avoid working with The Bad Boss, good luck finding another job, don’t waste your time there. The Bad Boss will try as much as they can to demolish your efforts and efforts at work.

The Bad Boss has another great talent which is putting the wrong people in the right positions and the right people in the wrong positions, I think it’s some sort of disorientation, and that causes more unprofessional results.

Oh yeah! The Bad Boss doesn’t know how to communicate usefully, they either talk too much without letting you know what you’re exactly supposed to do, or they talk too much you realize they are not trying to do anything but complain or gossip, or there is another options which is, they don’t talk enough so you get really confused, like there aren’t enough information but you know there is something you should deal with or a problem that you should solve, because in the last case they are not sure what the problem is and they didn’t comprehend or process any information given to them. Bare mind please that The Bad Boss doesn’t know also when to communicate and what method to use. Let me explain this, they might text you late at night, or call you on your day off, as if your love and passion in life is to hear their voices. There is another example, some problems and issues are urgent they cannot be delivered in a text message or emails, because who knows when people are going to get them, or if they in purpose ignore them, The Bad Boss texts when they should call, and call when they should text and so on.

The Bad Boss might directly and indirectly encourage you to do immoral things to get the job done or maybe go with a cheap standard, they might point some twisted employee out there and say: “HEY LOOK THEY ARE DOING A GREAT JOB!” But they not necessarily do the same, they might who knows.

The Bad Boss also doesn’t have skills to work within a team or create or maintain a good team. That’s due to their ignorance of the importance of team work, second, their love to fame and popularity, so they think all the credit and applause will go to them alone at the end.

The Bad Boss doesn’t know how to deal with or behave in front of customers. Have you ever been in a situation that your boss says bullshit about one of your colleagues to you in front of clients thinking he/she is quiet enough not to be heard? That is being The Idiot Bad Boss. This case is really hazard and somehow hopeless. Or your boss, I don’t care if that was a male of a female, verbally flirts with colleagues in front of customers, and so loud and clear like they don’t care, or flirts with clients. I know people who work with The Bad Boss, who flirts with them, and they take that as an advantage to ruin The Bad Bosses reputation. So The Bad Boss can be bad enough to ruin their own lives at work. Or there is also another important situation when you are actually talking to one of the customers and The Bad Boss comes and interrupts, or interferes without understanding exactly what’s going on! This! Oh My God This Is! Just Beautiful when it happens. You feel like you don’t wanna live no more in the same time zone with That Bad Boss.

The Bad Boss isn’t limited to what I have said and mentioned, there are so many types of Bad Bosses, and I would really be happy to hear from you guys, what is The Bad Boss to you?

Does My Cat Know?

Zoya
Zoya

Probably not, but this is how it is!

Two months ago I started feeling pain in my feet and that got really bad as time passed by, for now I’m not ready to talk about it, maybe later, and I’m still not over it. So in total my walking turned bad, I can’t run or jump so far, been off work since then.

My cat, who’s name is Zoya, lol same as the queen’s name in “The Kingdom of All Kingdoms”, which is also my nickname, delivered her babies less than a month ago, she now has 3 nice black kittens, just like her.

Every time she is around and I want to see her kittens I have to go downstairs to the basement where she is happy to have them; safe and warm. So I call for her and she joins me to go and see them. She goes downstairs quickly, usually, but now she goes five or six steps down quickly and waits for me to step down, and as I get near her she goes another bunch of steps down fast and wait for me, then she walks into the basement but she never goes beyond the doors or walls where I can’t see her, instead she waits there where we both can see each other. And it goes on like this until we both are with her babies!

Today I was wondering if she actually knows or if she is just too excited and doesn’t want me to change my mind and go upstairs all of a sudden and not see the babies. But every time she waits for me she makes me laugh. These creatures we call pets are definitely awesome!

Life is good, keep smiling people!
