Keep Calm And Fight Over (Who Pays) The Bill
I am pretty sure it is always the same thing, more than one arab man at a table in a restaurant, the bill arrives, and then BOOM! the war commences! And then it goes on and on and on and honor is mentioned and what not until one dominant male is declared victor and has the honor of paying for the meal
Keep Calm and Zaghred!
Zaghred, zalghet, zarghed, zalhouta, zaghrouda… no matter how you pronounce it, it is the unmistakable sound made by women all over the Arab world in weddings and other joyous occasions. THe tongue starts making that weird thing, the hand goes over the mouth, and the pitch reaches a level unparalleled by any other creature on the planet. Lilililililililililiiiiiiiiiii!!! I can never pull it off, but my mom is always the first one to get it going at family weddings XD
hey, I'd just like to tell you I enjoy your blog greatly. And I like how it isn't 100% Muslim references all the time [as someone suggested], as some of us Arabs are obviously Christian [or other] so we don't always get the Muslim references. Thanks for an awesome blog!
Well, thank you so so much! And thank you for sticking around even with the Ramadan specific ones! Hopefully you’ll enjoy the upcoming ones too, and if you have any suggestions please do share :)
keepcalmandtabbouleh welcomes all non-muslim arabs and non-arab muslims ;)
i really love how for the ramadan ones, you added hadith to each of them... great job with this blog
Thank you so much! So glad you enjoyed them. And I hope you stick around for the non-Ramadan stuff too ;)
