1- Affaaa - Typically used to express disappointment

2- Bal! - An expression of shock or excitement - Watch out when you use it though, because it's kind of like the polar opposite of "MashAllah"

#QTip: Calling just to say hello (it's important)

10,143

In Arabic culture, it's very important to call people just to say hello. It shows that you care about the person and don't just call simply when you need something. It's about maintaining a relationship whether personal or for business purposes. When's the last time you called someone just to say hi?

All good things must come to an end! This is just the end of Season 1!

In this episode we share some quick info on the Majlis. What the back cushion is called, what the side cushion is called, and invites.

If you're invited to a person's majlis, that's a sign of great respect and trust. It means that you've got an open ended invitation to pass by and have a tea. Remember though, Majlises (is the plural of Majlis Majli?) are typically separated, meaning there's a men's majlis and a women's hang out spot.
