Letting go of the past

I think we know that this isn’t working

He: I think we both need to compromise in order to work it out. Because it’s worth it to me.

I don’t know how much good there is, in what we had. Feels like it was such a long time ago. And i dont know how it got so bad.

I’m sure I said this is the happiest relationship I’ve ever been in. And it was. But it’s not there anymore.

Like where I am right now, is I deserve better than this. I just want to find a guy that makes me happy.

He: If that’s what you want, then that’s what you need.

Chillout: First Middle East Ice Cafe Opens In Dubai Today

Chillout ice cafe opens today in Dubai’s Times Square Mall. It’s the first ice restaurant in the Middle East. Almost everything at the restaurant is sculpted out of ice. Diners will sit on ice benches or chairs, eat at ice tables, out of ice plates, drink from ice glasses served from a bar made of ice.

A Dh9 million (US $2.45 million) investment, the restaurant is Dubai-based Sharaf Group’s enterprise while technical inputs came from Canada-based Iceculture Inc, who are credited with building ice lounges around the world, informed a spokesperson for Sharaf Group.

“We want Chillout to be part of people’s lifestyle and not just a unique experience that will fade away with time,” he said.

“It was a special operation which took a year and a half to carry out.”

The 2,400 sqft restaurant has three areas. The lobby and the lounge areas are separated by what is called the Buffer Zone. Once in the lobby, visitors will be given thermal gear to protect themselves from the chilly conditions. It comprises a hooded parka (a heavy jacket), disposable woollen gloves and a pair of shoes.

Visitors are advised to first spend a few minutes in the Buffer Zone to get acclimatised. The temperature in the buffer zone is set at 5 degrees Celsius which gives the body time to adjust to the sharp drop in temperature in the dining area.

Nancy Ajram – Enta Eih?

Enta eih mesh kfaya aalaik
what are you (how cruel are you) Is it not enough
Tegrahni haram aalaik enta eeih
That you hurt me? Have pity. How cruel are you?
Enta laih dimooai habeebi tehoun aalaik
Why my love, is it so easy for you to bring me to tears
Tab w laih ana radya enak tegrahni w roohi feek
And why do I accept that you hurt me when my soul is part of you
Tab w laih yaani eih radya beaazabi bain edaik
And why am I accepting this torment at your hands?

If this is love, my misery is from it
W law kan da zanbi matoub aano
And if I am to blame, I cannot say never again
Law kan naseebi aaeesh fey gerah
And if it is my lot to live in torment
Hayaeesh fey gerah
I shall live in torment

Mesh haram mesh haram enak tekhdaani fey hobi leek
Have you no pity? Have you no shame that you cheat me knowing the love I have for you
Mesh haram elgharam wel seneen hayati w 3ashi eleek
Is it not a shame, the passion and the years and longing that I am living for you?
Daa awam wala kan leaaba fey hayatak yetdaweek
Was the love lost completely? Or has it been a game
Daa awam el hanan w hodni albi w amali feek
Was the love and tenderness and my heart and faith in you all lost?
(x2)

Law kan da hob ya waili mino
If this is love, my misery is from it
W law kan da zanbi matoub aano
And if I am to blame, I cannot say never again
Law kan naseebi aaeesh fey gerah
And if it is my lot to live in torment
Hayaeesh fey gerah
I shall live in torment

Saudi woman drives, posts on YouTube


Wajeha Al Huwaider is also a well-known journalist and has worked for the Arabic language daily Al-Watan and English language daily Arab News.

Riyadh: A Saudi Arabian woman has posted a video on YouTube driving a car, to mark International Women’s Day.

Women are prohibited from driving vehicles in Saudi Arabia, in accordance with Saudi Arabian law.

Wajeha Al Huwaider, a prominent Saudi Arabian activist, who was arrested by police in 2006 for organizing a women’s rights protest, talks throughout the video about the need for women to be able to drive in Saudi Arabia.

She says female drivers are already common in rural parts and says she hopes to see women driving in the country’s towns and cities.

Al Huwaider is also a well-known journalist and has worked for the Arabic language daily Al-Watan and English language daily Arab News.

Following her arrest in 2006, she was reportedly forced to sign a statement agreeing to stop all activist activity and was banned from travelling outside Saudi Arabia. The ban was later lifted
