Nowadays, some heads are used for hair cutting!! 

What you waiting for???

Just leave it away and think  differently. How many times we encounter problems in our life. For sure a lot. Some of it we can tackle it and others no. So for problems which we can’t resolve it, why we need to wait for so long until we sort it out? And at the end nothing can be achieved and nothing changed or improved. You see, is not it too funny?

Some people have their own thoughts and principles. Don’t be so optimistic that you can change them someday. So no need to keep staring at the problem and be much surprised waiting for finding a solution to it. Just think of it ! Even you need to inform them for what they are doing is wrong, but inevitably, they have never satisfied. you know why because they have their own satisfaction for doing their own stuff. As a result, we have just wasted our time.

Finally, the hardest thing ever is that you can’t change anyone personality. So be cool and move forward.

People use their head for hair cutting and unfortunately, they forgot what it is there inside their head. I guess, it could be there what we call it? May be—a brain.

Over trust

Over trust is the main reason for failure.

you have to expect what it’s not expected.

You have to measure the person you deal with.

If you are unable to build expectations beyond your thoughts, you may get passive consequences.

In Brief, if you can’t  measure and expect to a person, it is ok! Then no need to reveal your  secrts to anyone be mysterious, until days discover to you who is that person who you are dealing with.

Thanks for reading!

Multi personalities

Don’t change who you are to satisfy other people.

Just be as you are, so people will like you.

However, Don’t make of yourself multiple copies, as per psychological diagnoses showed that these kind of people suffer from a certain disease called by “mutli-personalties.”

If you still have that way “You might lose the way how to get home.”

World is the scientist

You know where is the ignorance part existing?!

When you say it’s enough I experienced and learnt everything in life. So That’s the abstract meaning for ignorance. As you can’t say that you reached the privilege rank when there are a lot of stuff still unknown to you.

World full of things that we still don’t know about. World is the school that we learn from it day by day.

In brief, world is the scientist.!!!!

4. Dates

Date is a type of sweet fruit that comes from Date Palm. The thousands of palm trees around the desert of Jordan results in great varieties of dates, from blonde to dark to the almighty Majdool date, the king of all dates.
In Jordan, you can find Dates in all kinds of form – in the dessert, eaten for snacks as dried fruit (also makes for an excellent souvenir to bring home), and even as juice.👍

Jordanian Cuisine (part 5).

Hello fellows,
Hope you are doing well.
Hussein Allam is here again🙂, all i am writing about today for the following dishes Musakhan, Kofta Bi Tahini, Maqlupa, Kanafeh, and Hareesah. As a continuation for the previous series ( part 1-2-3-4) and now, let’s talk about the series 5, I guess it will be something different, as have to include some of the delicious desserts which it is the most popular dishes in Jordan.
Let’s go;😉.

1- Musakhan
Musakhan is a Jordanian and Palestinian dish of slices of bread, chicken, heaps of onions, fragrant spices like allspice and cinnamon, and lots of olive oil. The ingredients are stewed together until the onion, chicken, olives, and bread are fall apart tender and the spices have blended and harmonized. While the spices have a sweet tinge to them, the actual dish is not sweet. But you will enjoy it 100% percent for sure.

2.Kofta Bi Tahini

Kind of similar to shish kebabs, just in a completely different form, kofta bi tahini is a dish that includes a bottom base layer of minced kebab (or kofta) meat, flattened out into a patty, topped with thin slices of potato, doused in a thick tahini sauce, and then baked.

The meat on the bottom is like a base of sausage, that wonderful parsley flavored minced meat. If I didn’t know the white thick sauce all over kofta bi tahini was tahini, it is “sesame paste” looks like creamy sauce , because it is so rich and creamy. But instead it has a slightly nutty taste, and it is not nearly as heavy as a dairy based sauce.

3. Maqlupa
Along with mansaf, maqluba is another favorite taste for me🙂 Literally translated at “upside down” 😄 and here it’s called ups and downs because maqluba includes meat or chicken on the bottom, rice, and spices, all cooked together in one pot. Once the dish is ready, the pot is flipped over onto a big plate or communal tray, so the rice stays on the bottom, and the meat or chicken is left on the top. Maqluba can be garnished with parsley, fried pine nuts or other types of nuts, and slices of lemon.
The rice, since it’s cooked with meat or chicken, takes on a lovely broth flavor kind of like chicken rice (if you eat chicken maqluba), and the meat or chicken becomes fall apart tender from the long cooking process. You can really enjoy it in Jordan by eating it together with Arabic salad, the freshness of the cucumber and tomatoes really complemented the rice and chicken.


4.Kanafeh
Of all the Jordanian sweets kanafeh is the most popular sweets between all Jordanians and tourists as well because it is so unique and included an interesting combination of ingredients and textures. This dessert is popular throughout the Levant, especially known in Palestine and Jordan.


Cheese is the most noticeable of ingredients in kanafeh, which is paired with either noodles or semolina, drenched in a sticky rose scented syrup, and topped with a pinch of ground pistachios. The cheese on the bottom tastes similar to mozzarella, while the top crust is crunchy and gooey.

5. Hareesah
If you are a huge desserts fan or sweets eater, You will love eating constantly. However. desserts are a big part of the cuisine in Jordan, and there are huge shops dedicated to just serving desserts.

One of the many common and widely available Arabic desserts in Jordan is hareeseh, a sweet made with semolina, coconut, cream, sugar, yoghurt, and almonds, all baked until golden brown. Hareeseh is prepared in bar form, kind of like the size and density of a brownie (although nothing like it in taste). It’s a very sweet dessert, and has a slight floral taste to go with the grainy texture of the semolina.
To be continued….
The last series are on the way to be finished, have a patient.😄
Hope you enjoyed reading it.
Thanks .

The lesson 

Not everyone we love will stay..

Not everyone you trust will be loyal..

Some people only exist as examples of  what to avoid..

Nowadays, we could see that most of the people are be careful  a lot for not making mistakes , means that ones doesn’t want passive things to return.

We believe, that There are a lot of people care too much to whom they deal with, because they fell for the first time, as a result , they got hurt so much. Therefore, they will not make it happen twice.

Be smart and learn from others mistakes. And  Don’t even give the chance to yourself for making it one on you.

Jordanian Cuisine (part 4)

Here is the continuation for Jordanian cuisine,  i am going to discuss for today about Ara’yes, Manasaf, Shish Kabab, and Zarb.

Let’s get started;


1. Ara’yes


If you didn’t know that ara’yes is grilled, you might actually think it’s deep fried, because it’s so crispy. At least that’s what will happen when  you try it for the first time.” Ara’yes”, which translates directly to the bride, is essentially two layers of pita bread, filled in the middle with minced lamb, onions, parsley, and with a fragrant allspice seasoning.

The quesadilla shaped ara’yes is then brushed with olive oil and grilled over hot charcoal so that it turns golden brown and crispy on the outside. The combination of that roasted olive oil bread and the oil of the minced lamb seeping into the bread, makes it irresistible.


2.Shish Kebabs

If you are a huge fan of meat, and the good news is, Jordanian food contains lots of meat, especially lamb. I should also quickly mention that some of the dishes mentioned on this list are vegetarians — in previous posts in part (1-2-3) but not definitely not shish kebabs.
Popular across the Middle East and the Levantine, shish kebabs in Jordan are typically made from minced lamb, which is mixed with parsley and lots of salt, then molded onto big sword like skewers, and grilled over hot charcoal. The saltiness of the meat, and the ratio of meat to fat, ensures the maximum of grilled flavor gets packed into the kebabs.


3. Mansaf

There’s one Jordanian food that is without question one of the most beloved dishes in the Kingdom – a dish that has known to bring people together in harmony and has even been at the center of resolving conflict. That dish is none other than Jordanian mansaf, widely considered to be the national dish of Jordan. After trying it, you can verify and agree with the Jordanian love for mansaf, it’s absolutely an amazing dish, and something so unique it is unlike any dish you have never eaten.

There are three main components to mansaf: rice, lamb, and jameed. The jameed, which is a hard dried out and fermented goats milk yoghurt, is re-hydrated into a gravy, and used to pour over the rice and lamb. The rice and lamb are fantastic, but mansaf really shines because of the jameed, which has a sour and salty taste, and an undeniable goat flavor. When you eat a ball of mansaf, you can literally taste the land of Jordan in your bite – it’s amazing.


4. Zarb

Similar to a Polynesian underground meat roast, the Jordanian Bedouin version of an underground oven is known as zarb. A mix of meat like lamb and chicken, rice, onions and carrots, are placed in a square hole in the ground, which is filled with flaming hot coals. The hole is then covered with a few layers of blankets to hold in the heat and finally sand is covered over the oven.
After a few hours, the meat and rice are all smoked, steamed, and grilled, all at the same time. The result is meat that’s fall apart tender Just like a few other dishes, it was served on a giant communal tray, rice at the bottom, a shoulder of lamb and all the vegetables on top. The lamb is so succulent it is unbelievable.

Without a companion 

Life will not stop without a companion. So don’t be sad if you stay alone, live your life the way it is. There are many ways to enjoy life.

So Pause…and take a deep breath in and then breath out, and grab the nature and talk to it. As it is the best friend for us, and it can’t hurt us one day, it’s there when we need it.

In conclusion, don’t be so much influenced when you encounter empty promises from a friend for hanging out. 

Train your mind

Train you mind how to see things beautiful and positive.

Truly, we have to try to train our mind for doing that as much as we train our mind to see things in a positive way, we will always be happy and accept everything.

So Making it as a habit and routine, it will help us overcome many obstacles, and then you will see the difference later.

If you always look for negative sides, you will be sad and depressed all together.

In brief, Happiness is there, grief and pain are there, so it is your choice what to choose.
TRAIN TRAIN TRAIN.

Jordanian Cuisine (part 3)

In the last two days, I have post a blog with regards to Jordanian Cuisine “part 2”. Therefore, here is the continuation for Jordanian traditional food. As I am going to discuss for today about Manakish, Mujadara, and Shawarma.

Here we go…


1. Manakish

Manakish called Arabic pizza, and spelled in all sorts of different letter combinations (manakish, manaeesh), manakish is essentially a round of dough, topped with za’atar (an herb thyme spice mixture), olive oil, and can then optionally include toppings like white cheese (halloumi), eggs, or ground meat. It’s then baked in a brick oven.


When manakish is hot and fresh, right out of the oven, it’s incredibly delicious – the crusty bread with a fluffy inside, and that wonderful herb taste. I liked manakish especially just plain with za’atar, and I also really enjoyed the version with white cheese (halloumi cheese).😋


2. Mujadara

A typical everyday Jordanian food is mujadara, a mixture of rice, lentils, and a seasoning that includes cumin. It’s something that nearly everyone knows the recipe for how to cook it at home, and it’s commonly eaten as a dish that’s quick and easy. It’s also a favorite main dish for vegetarians in Jordan as well, as it’s filling and tastes delicious.

We like cooking this Jordanian style of mujadara is that the raw rice is cooked with the raw lentils altogether (rather than being cooked separately), so the flavors all melted and blended together. Additionally, deep fried caramelized onions and fried fragrant pine nuts sprinkled on top, are the two ingredients that take mujadara to the next level.👍


3. Shawarma

A meat lovers favorite from Europe to the Middle East, shawarma is common in Jordan and you’ll find restaurants that serve lamb, beef, and chicken versions. The signature method of cooking shawarma – layers of thin meat stacked on a sword like spit and revolving either vertically or horizontally over a source of heat – is part of what gives the meat its unique taste. When the outer layer of meat is cooked, it’s shaved off with a sharp knife, and usually wrapped in bread with either garlic sauce or tahini and a few pickled vegetables.

If you are meat lover, you have to make shawarma something can never pass up while you are in Jordan. 😉There’s an entire shawarma street in Amman, where you’ll find a number of different types of shawarma.
To be continued….

Thanks for reading🙂.

Envy

Don’t be envious, and jealous about what other people have from possessions, because God may give them this and take other things from them.


However, They are many people have all fashionable styles at their home, cars, money, a lot of servant under their order, and all nice food being cooked for them. Although, they have all of these things, and you may notify them that happy but truly they are not. Consequently, we may find that they can’t eat, or we might find them, they are not happy , as they are all the time depressed, sad, and suffering from a lot of diseases.


On the contrary, we know that there are a lot of people they don’t have all materialistic things, and they are poor but they are in full of health and happiness. Purposely, we should thank and accept what almighty God gave us. In addition, envy in Islam religion is totally prohibited not acceptable, as a result, anyone who has this passive habit, God will calculate ones in the day of judgment and will get punished for this behavior.

In brief, that’s the approve for you that money is not all thing. So health is the crown which it puts on healthy people’s head, no one can see it except who are sick.

Health is the important=money is useless

Thanks for reading.

Jordanian Cuisine (Part 2)

In the last few days, I have just posted about 6 dishes of Jordanian Cuisine, and here is the  continuation for the part 1:-

Let’s get started.

1.Galayet Bandora

One of the other common dishes we have in Jordan is ” galayet bandora “, also known just as galayet. This dish includes tomatoes which are stewed until soft and pureed, with a few seasonings like garlic, olive oil, and salt. The tartness and sweetness of the tomatoes is what really shines, and it tastes great scooped up with bread ore eaten with rice.


You also can try this type of galayet with meat, so it is kind of chunky tomato sauce with cubes of beef, eaten with rice.

2. Warak Enab and Kousa Mahshi

Warak enab, or stuffed grape leaves, and kousa mahshi, which are stuffed zucchini, can sometimes be served together, and they are another fantastic addition to Jordanian cuisine. Versions of this dish are commonly eaten throughout the Middle East and Mediterranean.

Both the grape leaves and the zucchini are stuffed with a combination of rice and ground meat, onions, and light seasonings, then wrapped up, and slow cooked. When you are in Jordan , you will find that it is usually served cold and with a sour taste from pickled grape leaves. But the best version that you may find it is a home-made meal, where both the grape leaf rolls and stuffed zucchini were cooked with lamb ribs and fat. The rolls were melt-in-your-mouth soft, and had soaked up all the lamb juices.


3.Ful Medames

When you visit Jordan you will find ful medames on the streets of Jordan, it’s like go-to street food you will enjoy “ful” immensely. And really you will have an awesome feelings while eating “ful”, this dish of mashed fava beans and olive oil, is also widely available and commonly eaten throughout Jordan. You’ll find ful at most restaurants that serve hummus and falafel.

The favorite way to eat ful is sprinkled with some powdered cumin and chili powder, drizzled in olive oil, and scooped up with either bites of bread or with wedges of onion. The fava beans taste very similar to Mexican refried beans. When you are in Jordan you will love eating ful medames for breakfast, along with some hummus and fresh raw vegetables.

4.Chicken Liver

Commonly served as a mezze dish, along with dishes like hummus and moutabel, chicken livers is another fantastic Jordanian dish to complement your meal. The chicken livers are typically sautéed in olive oil with just a few simple seasonings like garlic, parsley, and salt, and then sprinkled with some lemon juice.

Liver is not everyone’s favorite part of the chicken, but I would say that you’ve got to give them a chance. If you are not a huge fan of chicken live, just give them a try you will love it until you become a huge fan fan of chicken liver😉, this tactic works;  A piece of bread, with a liver, and some hummus, is an wonderful combination bite.👍🙂.


5.Kaek Bread Sandwich

One of the most popular Jordanian street food snacks, especially common in the morning, is a kaek bread sandwich. The bread, which is in the shape of a mini personal loaf, is topped in a crust of sesame seeds, and can be filled with Happy Cow like triangles of cheese, hard baked eggs, za’atar, and chili sauce. It’s simple, tasty, and very common.

Kaek sandwiches taste the best when they are piping hot – when the bread is cooked fresh. If you visit Amman, there’s a lot of bakeries which it sells this type of bread. but it serves one of the best sesame bread sandwiches in the city. Grab a fresh loaf, add all the toppings your self, and take a bite of one of the most incredible loaves of kaek in Jordan.👌

6. Kibbeh Bi Laban

Kibbeh are little deep fried nuggets of minced meat, onions, and spices, wrapped in a crust of bulgar wheat, and deep fried until golden crispy on the outside. The dish is commonly eaten on its own, or as a mezze dish or snack, along with a variety of different dishes like hummus or moutabel.
But for kibbeh bi laban, after the kibbeh are done being prepared, they are then cooked in a yoghurt sauce, which not only transforms their taste and texture, but also turns them more into a main dish as opposed to a snack. enjoy kibbeh when you visit Jordan in all its forms, 😉both plain, and cooked with laban yoghurt sauce.🙂

Your tongue is your horse 🐎

Talk when you need to be silent …

Be silent when you need to talk …

Our tongue is probably the one which it brings curse and bliss to us.

Wait..before ending this post.. I  just remembered a thing. Here it is. Don’t tie your tongue so tight. But you need to be wise when talking to people. Furthermore, I believe that we are not always talking wisely. But try to select what it needs to be selected from words when you feel that you need to speak.

That’s it. Thank you!

A person’s true colors.

You see a person’s true colors when you are no longer beneficial to their life.Their advantages are their priorities. When they need you , they will be around you.

As, we can else discover them in certain situiations, when you need them, they will not be there. To illustrate, people are like situations.

Do not only look how to make friends for spending time only-pastime, look for who will help out when you are in troubles. Put in your mind, the very true friends are not the one that we need.

In brief, staying alone is much better than having useless friends in all shapes and words.

Damn! A lot of things have to say, but it is enough here, i know you got my message.

Thanks for the time reading this post, and love to hear your true feedback about few situations which you have encountered it so far. However, Sharing your experience about those selfish people makes me stronger to avoid them in the future. In addition, perhaps others may obtain benifits and knowlede for defining them.

Jordanian Cuisine ( part 1 )

This post concerned about Jordanians’ cuisine, If you’re a food lover, this is a list of food you’ve got to try when you’re in Jordan.
Ok, let’s get started.


1- Falafel 

Falafel, a combination of ground chickpeas, mixed with a variety of spices, then deep fried into mini patty like shapes, is one of the most common street food snacks or light meals in Jordan. They can be eaten on their own like veggie nuggets, eaten with bread, or stuffed into sandwiches.

2. Moutabel
When you plan to visit Jordan, you will find a type of baba ghanoush dish , it is a kind of Middle Eastern roasted eggplant dip and you will love it. When you visit Jordan, you will discover that baba ghanoush is available everywhere, by far the more common roasted eggplant dip available is moutabel, which is similar to baba ghanoush, but quite different. One of the main ingredient differences is that moutabel uses yoghurt in its recipe.

You will love eggplant, especially when it’s roasted over fire, to give it a wonderfully smoky taste and a smooth and creamy consistency. For moutabel, the roasted and peeled eggplant is combined with yoghurt, tahini, garlic and lemon juice.

3. Hummus.

Hummus is possibly the most well known Levantine and Middle Eastern food around the world. You will enjoy hummus. And In Jordan we ate hummus mostly everyday and it is preferred in the morning, and evening time as well.

The hummus in Jordan is fantastic, and despite containing just about the same ingredient make-up at every restaurant you order it from, it’s amazing how each version tasted just slightly different – the amount of lemon juice, and ratio of garbanzo beans to tahini, the texture, and also, very importantly, the olive oil.

4.Labneh
Labneh, which is also known as strained yoghurt, is a very thick, creamy yoghurt, that’s served at just about every breakfast table in Jordan. It’s not typically eaten like a bowl of yoghurt because it’s so rich, but instead it’s used as a spread for bread, or a dip for vegetables. The taste is sour and creamy, but usually not salty, very similar to sour cream.

Labneh can be served in a bowl plain, or drizzled with olive oil, or combined with different herbs or leaves to give it more flavor.

5.Tabbouleh

Another Levantine dish, often a starter or salad, tabbouleh is a mixture of finely minced parsley, tomatoes, garlic, and bulgar wheat, all dressed in lemon juice, salt, and olive oil. And also, tabbouleh is not typically scooped up with bread like hummus or moutabel, but it’s typically eaten plain with a spoon as well.

As for tabbouleh. You will love the freshness and crispness of the parsley, the garlicky taste, and the contrast of sour lemon juice and saltiness. As it is available all over Jordan.

6. Arabic salad

Similar in dressing taste to tabbouleh, but with a different vegetable make-up, Jordanian, or Arabic salad, usually includes finely diced up cucumber, tomatoes, and bell peppers, dressed in lemon juice and lots of olive oil.

We eat this salad as an excellent refreshing starter dish, we also particularly enjoyed it with main dishes like maqluba (rice and meat) and with grilled dishes like shish kebabs – to give the meal a nice balance. Nearly every restaurant in Jordan, they serve it.

Thanks for reading.

Oh eyes, other people have eyes too ·_·

Don’t allow your tongue to utter the fault of another person, because you are covered in faults and everyone else has tongues too. 

And, Don’t allow your eyes to fall on the faults of others. Turn away your eyes and say to your eyes. ” Oh eyes, other people have eyes too”

We are not perfect in the world, we still humans, and do mistakes as well, and the perfection is only to Almighty God. 

The courage to confront!!

The courage is to stand up and to speak in front of them instead of talking about them at their back.
I usually see a kind of people, if they get angry from someone, they will strat talking about ones behind. As this way, it is not an efficient way, and it can’t turn them to the right.

However, if you see a mistake, go and confront them. if you talked about them behind, it means that you are coward and afraid to face them. As a result, all the issues and struggles can’t be solved.

We are not angles, and excuses still exist there. As friends, we have to create excuses for each other, if not why we are friends?! 

Confronting = solution 

Not confronting # struggles
Be the lion!

Joining local people for a cup of tea or coffee can be a wonderful way to learn more about local culture. If you are invited yet are unable to attend, then it is perfectly acceptable to decline. Place your right hand over your heart and politely make your excuses.


Many families, particularly in rural areas, are very traditional and, if you visit their house, you may well find it is divided between the men and women. Foreign women are often treated as “honorary” men.



Local women in Jordan enjoy considerable freedom when compared with many other countries in the region. Women are entitled to a full education, they can vote, they can drive cars, and they often play significant roles in business and politics. Arranged marriages and dowries are still common.

Almost Jordan’s entire population is Arab. This is an ethnic term, but also marks a pan-national identity, largely because nation-states are relatively new: many people in Jordan feel a much stronger cultural affinity with Arabs from nearby countries than, say, Britons might feel with Belgians. The bedouin add a deeper layer of meaning by often regarding themselves to be the only true, original Arabs. Jordan has tiny ethnic minorities of Circassians and Chechens (who are Muslim), Armenians (Christian) and Kurds (Muslim) – all of whom are closely bound into Jordanian society – as well as Dom gypsies (also Muslim).

Religion

Jordan is an ideal destination for those seeking cultural knowledge and spiritual enrichment. Jordan values its ethnically and religiously diverse population, consequently providing for the cultural rights of all its citizens. This spirit of tolerance and appreciation is one of the central elements contributing to the stable and peaceful cultural climate flourishing in Jordan. More than 92% of Jordanians are Sunni Muslims and approximately 6% are Christians. The majority of Christians belong to the Greek Orthodox Church, but there are also Greek Catholics, a small Roman Catholic community, Syrian Orthodox, Coptic Orthodox, Armenian Orthodox, and a few Protestant denominations. Several small Shi’a and Druze populations can also be found in Jordan.Jordan culture and traditionsJerash – Umayyad Mosque

As Jordan is predominantly an Islamic country, one may explore the principles of Islam through direct interaction with the people of this monotheistic religion. As the capstone of a long tradition beginning with Judaism and Christianity, Muslims believe that Islam completes the revelation of God’s message to humankind. Islam – which in Arabic means “submission” – is an assertion of the unity, completeness, and sovereignty of God. Muslims believe that God, or Allah as He is known in Arabic, revealed his final message to humankind through the Prophet Muhammad and the Holy Qur’an, which is the divine immutable word of God. Islam focuses heavily on the equality of all humans before the one true God, and therefore it is in many ways a return to the original doctrine of the pure monotheism that characterized the early Judeo-Christian tradition.

Islamic tradition has crystallized five fundamental observances, or “pillars,” that are as important as faith in defining Islamic identity and strengthening the common bond that ties all Muslims together. They are Confession of Faith, Daily Prayer (five times per day facing the holy city of Mecca), Fasting during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan now we are in Ramadan holy month, Almsgiving, and Pilgrimage to Mecca.

Jordan -Nationality

There persists a perceived difference between people whose origins lie in families long resident on the east bank of the River Jordan and people whose families originate on the west bank of the river. All are Jordanian citizens, yet Jordanians of Palestinian origin are estimated to number between half and three-quarters of the total population. Roughly seven percent of people in Jordan are expats, including guest workers – many of them Egyptian, Sri Lankan and Filipino – alongside a sizeable population of Iraqi refugees.

Change your plans but never change your goal, it is still achievable! 

I am tired of saying to you that if the plan did not work with you, change your plans but never change your goal. 

Sometimes, we get wrong plans towards our goal, therefore, it couldn’t be achieved. However, while you are working to achieve your goal, set a straight logic strategies. Although, we plan well, but we sometimes feel that we failed in planning. So it is OK. Don’t worry, it doesn’t mean that we failed for obtaining the goal. So, we still have a chances to reset the plan, and go for it again. However, what important is that you don’t have to change your goal, all you have to do is solely reimplement and rearrangement to your plans. 

Never Never Never change your goal..

PETRA MORE THAN A WONDER! 

This Historical place where I live now! 

The giant red mountains and vast mausoleums of a departed race have nothing in common with modern civilization, and ask nothing of it except to be appreciated at their true value – as one of the greatest wonders ever wrought by Nature and Man.


Although much has been written about Petra, nothing really prepares you for this amazing place. It has to be seen to be believed. 


Petra, the world wonder, is without a doubt Jordan’s most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. It is a vast, unique city, carved into the sheer rock face by the Nabataeans, an industrious Arab people who settled here more than 2000 years ago, turning it into an important junction for the silk, spice and other trade routes that linked China, India and southern Arabia with Egypt, Syria, Greece and Rome.


Entrance to the city is through the Siq, a narrow gorge, over 1km in length, which is flanked on either side by soaring, 80m high cliffs. Just walking through the Siq is an experience in itself. The colours and formations of the rocks are dazzling. As you reach the end of the Siq you will catch your first glimpse of Al-Khazneh (Treasury).


This is an awe-inspiring experience. A massive façade, 30m wide and 43m high, carved out of the sheer, dusky pink rock-face and dwarfing everything around it. It was carved in the early 1st century as the tomb of an important Nabataean king and represents the engineering genius of these ancient people.


Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and a hat to protect you from the sun, and always carry plenty of drinking water.

The Treasury is merely the first of the many wonders that make up Petra. You will need at least four or five days to really explore everything here. As you enter the Petra valley you will be overwhelmed by the natural beauty of this place and its outstanding architectural achievements. There are hundreds of elaborate rock-cut tombs with intricate carvings – unlike the houses, which were destroyed mostly by earthquakes, the tombs were carved to last throughout the afterlife and 500 have survived, empty but bewitching as you file past their dark openings. Here also is a massive Nabataean-built,


Roman-style theatre, which could seat 3,000 people. There are obelisks, temples, sacrificial altars and colonnaded streets, and high above, overlooking the valley, is the impressive Ad-Deir Monastery – a flight of 800 rock cut steps takes you there.


Within the site there are also two excellent museums; the Petra Archaeological Museum, and the Petra Nabataean Museum both of which represent finds from excavations in the Petra region and an insight into Petra’s colourful past.
A 13th century shrine, built by the Mameluk Sultan, Al Nasir Mohammad, to commemorate the death of Aaron, the brother of Moses, can be seen on top of Mount Aaron in the Sharah range.

Inside the site, several artisans from the town of Wadi Musa and a nearby Bedouin settlement have set up small stalls selling local handicrafts, such as pottery and Bedouin jewellery, and bottles of striated multi-coloured sands from the area.

It is not permitted for motorized vehicles to enter the site. But if you don’t want to walk, you can hire a horse or a horse-drawn carriage to take you through the one kilometre Siq. For the elderly and/or handicapped, the Visitors’ Centre, close to the entrance of the Siq, will issue a special permit (at an extra fee), for the carriage to go inside Petra to visit the main attractions. Once inside the site, you can hire a donkey, or for the more adventurous, a camel – both come with handlers and take designated routes throughout the site.  

The best time to see Petra, especially if you’re planning to take photographs, is either early to mid-morning or late afternoon, when the angled sun highlights and enhances the amazing natural colours of the rocks.

Petra was first established sometime around the 6th century BC, by the Nabataean Arabs, a nomadic tribe who settled in the area and laid the foundations of a commercial empire that extended into Syria. 

Despite successive attempts by the Seleucid king Antigonus, the Roman emperor Pompey and Herod the Great to bring Petra under the control of their respective empires, Petra remained largely in Nabataean hands until around 100AD, when the Romans took over. It was still inhabited during the Byzantine period, when the former Roman 

Empire moved its focus east to Constantinople, but declined in importance thereafter. 

The Crusaders constructed a fort there in the 12th century, but soon withdrew, leaving Petra to the local people until the early 19th century, when it was rediscovered by the Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt in 1812.
Petra Archaeological Park

The Petra Archaeological Park (PAP) covers a 264 dunum (264,000 square metres) area within Wadi Musa, which is considered a tourism and archaeological site, and a World Heritage Site registered on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1985. The area encompasses a breathtaking landscape of pink-hued rock mountains, the focus of which is the amazing ancient Nabataean city of Petra, which was carved into the rock more than 2,000 years ago.

7 facts about me;
1. like doing adventures, i do not care about consequences, if i need to do something, consequently, I will be responsible about what i have done, either positive or negative results.
2. like having conversation with older people than me in age, and talk about their past experience, because i could see that they are wise, as a cnsequence, i could learn something from them wisdom and history alike.
3. I do not like going over discussion which it is useless.
4. I am too sensitive, as i got influnced by other people stories esaily, as live the atmosphere of content while reading it.
5. I always like reading books about crimes and how it ends up. Furthermore, books about sales and marketing strategies, as I worked in sales field one year ago. But now, I work as an English teacher pertaining to the field which I have taken it at the university. Currently, I have an awesome interactive activities in class with kids, it is so much fun. As I try to avoid mimic while teaching by creating new techniques for making them love English Language. My wish is to travel to Canada to continue up my education in master degree in phontics major.
6. I like watching movies which it touches the reality, as I keep myself away from superstitious movies, because it is so boring!”No benefits”
7. I am sociable, I like making friends from all over the world and knowing more about cultures and traditions of others as well, I do not care about race, gender, and religion, all are same to me and welcomed. But I am too much aware while selecting friends, I usually take time to choose friends. As I study people and take sometime to whom I want to be with. Why?! Because, I experienced different types of mentalities, I thought that they are good at the beginning, but unfortunately, they disappointed me later, truly they look for their best only. So no need for selfish friends. As I believe that “One good friend is better than one hundred useless friends.” It is easy to make hundreds of friends in one day, but it is hard to find one good friend in one day, as a result, making good friends takes time.
8. I am attention to details, I like to go through each single point and doing some deep analysis for it. In case, if do not know anything about it, until, I recognize it.

Pain of the past..

Being addicted to passive things all day like alcohol, heroin, cigarettes, it will not let you heal from the pain of the past, but it destroys health , and it may lead to death surely..As it will not help you forget things for a long time, but it is only for temporary period. So what you get here?! I told you ” it will not”.. you understand!

So, we can’t deny that the past is part of us, as it can’t be seperated. And now because it has become part of us, we have to live with it naturally, as a result, we can not run away from it. So all we have to do is just accept it, and act towards it positively. 

Remember, there are a lot of people had passed away due to overdose of heroin. as a result, they have left their kids behind, as a a consequence, there is no one taking care of them now. in other words, you did not tackle it, but you make it worse. In addition, your children are being oppressed by others constantly, And your wife is unable to do everything alone, she needs someone to support her, but she could not find. 

Also, remember that your children need you, be the best father for them, make them happy, as you should not turn their life into hell because of something unworthy. Notifying you that past already died and was buried in its age. Why you need to bury your present by your past?! 

As, it’s already done, past is past, present is present, and future is future. So life will go on. 

For now, I don’t know what they think these kind of people who get addicted to drugs that this the best way to sort things out?!! 

Keep it in mind….

Weaknesses!!!

I am strong because I know my weaknesses. Everybody in the world has weakness, so don’t cheat yourself, or pretend that you don’t have weaknesses – normal people have strength and weakness as well.
If you are being asked one day about what is your weakness?! Just tell them by self confidence and your nose up high, that you had them before, but you overcame it now. In turn, the one who asked you the question has also weakness. So If you asked him about what his weaknesses, and lied. By answering by ” no”, it means he is real weak.

Undoubtedly, this person needs a lot of time to discover who he is, as he has got lost inside himself- unable to find his own way. It means, he is not able to trust himself. While the other who knows his strength and weakness, it means that he has a strong character not being feared of what he/she encounters, as he has enough self confidence for facing things.

Life’s stations

Life’s stages are like stations. Before you go to next station, try to clear everything. So, stations are built altogether to make us reach a purpose to where we intended to go. 

However, If we follow our steps properly, and we know what are doing and where we are going to , we will continue our journey successfully. 

Make sure, to choose the right destination where you want to stop in. 

If you are not ready yet, ok! Wait for the next train when it comes for picking you up to next stations. 

It is so weird!!!! 

People from a single simple conversation get so upset, they want to fight without even going through in any way trying to sort it out. 

This is so stupid when we see adults fight and hit each other without thinking about further consequences. Do you think we are not able to absorb the situation preventing it from happening. Yes we can but if we want.

However, I do not know why people become brutal. I do not know What they are eating though? ! I think the reason is the type of food they eat it. 

Positive Criticism

Criticism is a useful tool can be used for improvement ones character. 

I could say that lots of people get angry if they got critisized by someone. As a result, they leave you away without further notice. They do not even explain why they blocked you on facebook 😄. When I memorized what I did for them, suddenly I remembered that I critisized them one day . Why is that for😅? That’s only because I only said my point of view. 

Look! Criticism is a great technique for improving ourselves character. So without this aspect, we can see ourselves perfect. 

Finally, we need to know with whom we deal before uttering any criticizes. As narrow minded people feel that it is against them passively. igonarnts are really everywhere, they think friends are enemies for them✌️. 

Without Criticism can’t live, because I can use it as an advantage for going a head.
