In The Past 24 Hrs

Yesterday, we visited my uncle who rented chalet at some resort. After lunch, my sister and I decided to take a walk in the resort and so we did with some family members. It was getting dark and the place was PACKED. We walked for like 20-30 mins before we decided to head back to the chalet... now picture this with me (and NO I am not exaggerating)...
We first passed by teenagers (around 16-17) who had their mobile phone in hand with the speaker on and some weird music playing

Then we came across two younger boys playing some Arabic-drum-like instrument (danabek)

After few steps... a young man in his 20s sitting in his pickup truck with the hubbly bubbly (argeela)

and many more scenes as we were walking but I cant recall at the moment!!!


Earlier today, I went to the spa. Spa Time was fully booked so I went to a smaller one. After I checked in, I entered the spa reception area to find a middle age woman sleeping on the only coach there! I was gonna burst laughing at that scene but held it in me... she was all covered and the lights were dimmed I couldnt tell whether she had her eyes opened or closed! Then suddenly she moved and asked me in a very sleepy way;

"tabeeen teg3ideen?" (do you wanna sit?)

"etha fi majaal?" (if thats possible?)

And she started talking about many things that did not make any sense to me. I usually go to the spa to relax and not to mingle and make friends but she kept telling me things... things I cant really discuss here on the blog, about her daughters, and if its ok to have a body massage outside home in a spa, and other things... I even stopped making eye contact but she kept going at it, and then her phone rang and I was like PUHLLLEEEEEZ! this is a spa! Some people just dont get it. I was so happy when she left the room!

Weird scenes and weired people in less than 24 hrs is just too much to handle even after a relaxing massage!
