I Asked Myself

I asked myself a question what is pyramid? I search on INTERNET about Pyramid. Wikipedia show me Pyramid results. Now I am sharing information with you. Pyramid is a building where the outer surfaces are triangular and converge at a point. The base of a pyramid can be trilateral, quadrilateral, or any polygon shape, meaning that a pyramid has at least four faces (base plus at least three triangular faces). The five-face square pyramid is a common version.

Egyptian pyramids
The Egyptian pyramids are ancient pyramid-shaped masonry structures located in Egypt.
In Egypt 2008, 138 pyramids discovered. Most were built as tombs for the country's Pharaohs and their consorts during the Old and Middle Kingdom periods.

The earliest known Egyptian pyramid is the Pyramid of Djoser which was built during the third dynasty. This pyramid and its surrounding complex were designed by the architect Imhotep, and are generally considered to be the world's oldest monumental structures constructed of dressed masonry.

The best known Egyptian pyramids are those found at Giza, on the outskirts of Cairo. Several of the Giza pyramids are counted among the largest structures ever built.
The Pyramid of Khufu at Giza is the largest Egyptian pyramid. It is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still in existence.

Education In My Country

My country “Egypt” has the largest education system in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and it has grown rapidly since 1990.Recentally Govt. of Egypt has accorded even great priority in improving the education and education system.

According to the Human Development Index (HDI),Egypt is ranked 116 in the HDI. With the help of World Bank and other multilateral organizations Egypt aims to increase access in early childhood care and education and the inclusion of ICT at all levels of education, especially at the tertiary level. The government is responsible for offering free education at all levels. The current overall expenditure on education is about 12.6 percent as of 2007. Investment in education as a percentage of GDP rose to 4.8 in 2005 but then fell to 3.7 in 2007. The Ministry of education is also tackling with a number of issues: trying to move from a highly centralized system to offering more autonomy to individual institutions, thereby increasing accountability.

In education, the personnel management needs to be overhauled and teachers should be hired on merit with salaries attached to the performance.

You Like Beautiful Arab Henna Design?

Henna (Mehndi) used in Arabic weddings. There are many styles of Henna but some styles which I like most than all other are under.

This style tends to be less detailed and intricate. its still very beautiful. Instead of having fill-ins it is just colored in boldly. Arabic mehndi designs don’t necessarily cover your hands or feet all the way. Many popular Arabic designs are vines and leaves with beautiful flowers.

My Favorite Scarf

Before telling about my favorite scarf you must have information about scarf. The keffiyeh is also known as “Scarf”. It is a traditional headdress typically worn by Arab men made of square of cloth (“scarf”), usually cotton, folded and wrapped in various styles around the head. It is commonly found in arid climate areas to provide protection from direct sun exposure, as well as for occasional use in protecting the mouth and eyes from blown dust and sand.

My favorite scarf is “Silk Scarf”. It adds a special touch to classy office work outfits such as the dress pants-shirt or basic jeans-v-neck sweater combo. If you don't want to look too matronly then make sure you don't tie it tight around your neck. Let it hang around your neck or below the dress shirt collar. You can also wrap it to your handbag for a French chic style.

Niqab: The Face Veil

Today I like to share with you Niqab. You know what is Niqab? Niqab (Hijab) is an Arabic world which is also known as “Veil” in other countries. Niqab covers the face, worn by some Muslim women as a part of sartorial hijāb. Most commonly thing in Arab countries are Hijab, In Arab countries of the Persian Gulf such as Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, and the UAE. It is also commonly used in Pakistan and among Muslim women and girls in the United Kingdom.

The dispute over whether niqab is fard or not has been going on among the scholars since the earliest centuries of Islam, and will probably still be going on at the end of time. Nobody can claim to have a definitive answer to this question.

Girls or Women who wear the Hijab are often called “Niqābīah”. Niqabiah word is used both as an adjective and as a noun. However, some prefer the participial form munaqqabah (plural munaqqabāt) as "niqābīah" may be used in a derogatory manner (much as with "hijābīah" versus muhajjabah).

Niqab can be difficult to definitively distinguish between one type of veil and another, Because of the wide variety of hijab worn in the Muslim world. The terms niqab and burqa are often used interchangeably. Muslim girls are advised by some schools of Islam to wear the niqāb starting at puberty.

Four Seasons Hotel Cairo At Nile Plaza

One day i went to my friend home where is also came my other friends and discussing topic about Cairo hotels. One of my friend told about Four Seasons Hotel. Here I am writing Four seasons hotel review which is told by my friend.

Four Seasons Hotel is situated at Nile Plaza Cairo. We stayed at the Nile Plaza Four Seasons for 3 nights. It is a beautifully done up modern hotel and is fairly new. The staff was very friendly and welcoming and did not ask for Bakshish or tips which is a national pastime here otherwise. Only the driver of the limo who left us at the airport was digruntled with a 20 LE tip.

We had a very nice welcome as we had called up and informed that we had two kids with us. They had arranged for a baby cot, rollaway bed, a basket containing a few diapers, all baby products like soap, shampoo, baby oil, moisturiser etc. There was a four seasons t-shirt for my older daughter on her bed and a bathrobe and slippers for her size as well in the bathroom. On the table they had kept a surprise welcome with chocolate cakes with their names on it, mango juice ( which was yum and we ordered it every day after that), and a small pack of colours and activity book for each girl. Needless to say that we were extremely pleased by this thoughtful gesture. They had a kids menu in room service which was useful for me as I did not want to risk feeding the kids outside in the city.

The rooms were ok sized although we had no proper view. Considering that the hotel was hardly full we could have got a better view, but we were not complaining. the balcony was big and we regularly had our meals there. The bathrooms were huge and well fitted out. The room service was prompt and pleasant.


The decor of the hotel was very modern and stylish. I specially loved their flower arrangements which were huge and breathtaking and changed frequently. The decor of the Aqua restaurant was the best in my opinion. There are a variety of restaurants to choose from Bella ( Italian), Zitouni ( Lebanese), Aqua ( Seafood), Spice ( Cantonese), Poolsode BBQ and Grill, And a bar and reception lounge with light snacks. Only grouse is that as the hotel is across the road none of them are on the river as such. Some have a view though of the nile. We had dinner at The Hyatt acroos the road one day and the location of their open air food court is excellent as it is bang on the river Nile with breathtaking views of the city. truly recommend a meal here.

I thought that the tour to the museum arranged by the hotel was too expensive as it was priced the same as the tour to the pyramids. I took a private tour with Rasha one of the guides recommended by tripadvisors members. Although she is very well read and gave us good information. She is not patient with the children and was annoyed at their constant interruptions. She always walked 15 feet away from us and was upset at our pace. She is probably best suited with families without kids.

Information About Cairo International Airport

Cairo International Airport (CAI) is located 22 km / 14 miles north-east of Cario. Cairo is the famous Egyptian capital. Cairo International Airport (CAI) lies directly east of Al-Matariyah, Al-Zaytun, Heliopolis, Hilmiya and Matariya. Egypt's busy Cairo Airport  annually serves more than 11 million passengers from all over the globe.

The airport operates from three terminals, with Terminal 1 being situated around 3 km / 2 miles from Terminal 2 and the recently completed Terminal 3, and linked by a convenient shuttle. Recently expanded car parking facilities mean the Cairo Airport  can now accommodate upwards of 7,000 vehicles, with both short-term and long-term options. Internationally recognised car hire companies including Avis, Budget and Hertz all have outlets situated within the Arrivals Hall.

Now The Cairo Airport (CAI) stands as a gateway to a region that claims more than 7,000 years of history. Anyone able to spend time in Cairo  will not want to Miss Giza, home of the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx, located only 25 miles / 40 km from the airport.

History of My City (Cairo)

Today I introduce history of my city Cairo. As the capital of Egypt, its distinctiveness is based on history that goes back thousands of years. This amazing city is full of life and its lively ersonality is all its own. Cairo, Egypt, known officially as al-Qāhirah is one of the world's largest urban areas and offers many sites to see. It is the administrative capital of Egypt and, close by, is almost every Egypt Pyramid, such as the Great Pyramids of Giza on the very edge of the city. But there are also ancient temples, tombs, Christian churches, magnificent Muslim monuments, and of course, the Egyptian Antiquities Museum all either within or nearby the city. Cairo, Egypt is an amazing city full of life and movement, and it is that way almost 24 hours every day, with the noisy honking of horns, children playing in the streets and merchants selling their wears and services. And here, the Egyptians are most at home in this powerful, modern and ancient city.
Cairo, Egypt provides great culture, including art galleries and music halls, such as the Cairo Opera House, as well it should, being one of the largest cities in the world. It also provides some of the grandest accommodations and restaurants in the world, such as the Four Seasons and the Cairo Marriott. There are some things to remember in order to avoid offending the other residents of this city. Pointing and using your index finger, showing the bottom of your feet, using the "thumbs up" sign, gesturing with your left hand (which is considered to be unclean), taking photographs without getting permission are all considered offensive and should be avoided. It is against the law to photograph bridges, railway stations, anything military, airports and other public works.

Cairo offers an incredible selection of shopping, leisure and nightlife activities. Shopping ranges from the famous Khan el-Khalili souk, (or bazaar) largely unchanged since the 14th century, to modern air-conditioned centers displaying the latest fashions. All the bounty of the East can be here. Particularly good buys are spices, perfumes, gold, silver, carpets, brass and copperware, leatherwork, glass, ceramics and mashrabiya. Try some of the famous street markets, like Wekala al-Balaq, for fabrics, including Egyptian cotton, the Tentmakers Bazaar for appliqué-work, Mohammed Ali Street for musical instruments and, although you probably won't want to buy, the Camel Market makes a fascinating trip. This is, and has been for over a thousand years, truly a shopper's paradise.

Myself Creative Ideas about Wedding

An Arab wedding is a very important and special occasion because it brings two souls together for lifetime of marriage. Arab wedding is different then other countries culture. Muslim weddings and marriages in various countries are same.

Here are some creative ideas about wedding

Chose color according to your culture and customs. Bride and groom should wear a charming and culturally traditional bridal attire for the ceremony, guests feel much pleasure. Decorate your house to attract the relatives and your city people.

The Groom must wear a tuxedo. Use romantic candles and beautiful flowers this is the final addition of your fairy tale wedding. This is a great decor idea for a creative wedding. Many different theme ideas have come to play over the years. I attended a Hawaiian style wedding in the snow country.

It goes without saying that music from your native country is a must. Hire a musician for the ceremony to play a traditional musical instrument. Play some of this type of music during key parts of your reception (however, don't play it throughout the whole night… a small sampling is best in this case).

There were many great ideas for a very unique and personalized favors and decor in this wedding. The nautical theme used both on board ship and on dry land is a winning theme. Shipboard weddings are popular and they offer the honeymoon as part of the package. The captain can perform the ceremony while the ships men do all the work for the scenery etc.
