In my career I had good presentations, when I was praised for my oratorical skills, and...less good ones, when I was asked what happened with me. When I look back, I cannot say what determines a presentation to be good.  Is it the fact that you have a good day? That you are self confident? That you are well prepared? In my opinion, you definitely need all of these, still... there are people who reach to make very good presentations without having all of the attributes above; they…

Experiencing Egypt

I liked many aspects of Egypt, but not everything.

I was fortunate to travel around Egypt last year. The weather was still pleasant yet cooling down and I travelled by plane, train, mini-bus, coach, felucca and camel; I travelled alone but met and made many friends there.

I began my journey by flying to Sharm el Sheikh on the Red Sea, a beautiful, quiet bay called Nabq. September there was amazing.  I spent two weeks in Cairo and a long time in Luxor, I journeyed to Abydos with…

Respecting others' cultures

In the last couple of weeks I have used the chat room on a daily basis, generally it's a worthwhile thing to do helping people to understand English. Unfortunately, each time I've connected someone has challenged me regarding my name.

I know that the name Ali is the name used by many Muslim/Arabic men, but please accept that in some countries Ali is also a woman's name.

I wouldn't mind so much if someone asked me about my name and my response prompted them to be surprised,…

I Can Promise You


P R O M I S E, Yeah these are only six letters. , but have you ever thought how powerful is this single word? I want to ask some questions from you. How many times did you say this sentence in your life”I promise you”? Maybe you told that more than 30 times for your parents, for your siblings, for your friends or for your beloved and perhaps sometimes you didn't care about what you said.  However, do you know that you give so many hopes with your…

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy

The title of the blog today is an English proverb. This link explains the word proverb.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy means that if we don't balance our day with work and play then we become dull. You must know someone who spends all their hours working, often they lose their sense of humour and don't appear to be relaxed or happy.

My days are always balanced with work and play,…

My "to do" list

Each morning I write a list of things I want to achieve in the day, it is called a "to do" list, simply because they are things I want to do.

Not everyone does it, but it helps me to stay focussed. 

I sometimes also write a long term to do list. On this list I write long term objectives, this includes things that take much longer to achieve. An example of what I once wrote on the long term list was to visit Egypt. Of course, it is impossible to decide…

Where Have They Gone? We Still Love Them!

You may know the story of the old man who had two sons long ago.

The sons decided that they wanted their inheritance right away so the father divided his property between them. One son stayed at home and worked to increase his property and help his father.

The other son went far away and wasted his money on many things and did not find ways to increase it. After years passed he had no money and only the clothes on his back. So, he came home to his family.

The father…
