In Response to BeAmman's article on Food Industry in Amman.

This entry is my comment on this article.

Guys! speaking from experience in the food industry of Amman,the problem is ETERNAL!

 I shall say that the food and service industry will remain undeveloped, if circumstances and the parameters of the success of a certain firm, remained the same.
For instance the WAGE, the best wage you will find on the market, coupled with best qualifications for sure, will be 1.75-2 jd/hour for cafe's and small restaurants-not fancy diners.

So, how would expect knowledge of the culinary fields, hygiene and positive body language or gestures!! sorry I found that too lofty, when you're expecting it from an under paid employee of barista.

If it happened and you were already qualified and have passion to work in this field in jordan. you probably will end up with one conclusion; You are Over qualified and you won't waste your time on less than 2jds/ hr. a salary that will barley cover up your transportation and food expenses.-since we lack an integrated transportation service in Amman - 

At last, I will mention a point to be fair for the industry capitalists. Taxes, bills, merchandise importing, customs complications,,, etc, overburdens both business owners and  the PRODUCT itself. And in many cases it is impossible to raise that imbecile wage.

MBC unbelievable discredit!معارة موقع ام بي سي

قبل عدة ايام, لاحظت ان احد المواقع الاخبارية قام بنشر خبر وهمي (بعد ترجمته من موقع امريكي* ساخر) 
على اساس انه خبر طبيعي, وهو وحيد القرن الخاص بمشيل اوباما!
لكن ما زاد الطين بلة (ما بحب هذا المثل) هو عدد المشاهدات الفلكي,نسبيا.
بصراحة هذا امر جدا متوقع من مواقع مشهود لها باللاحرفية بعدة مواقف سابقة ,وعدم الموضوعية كاسلوب حياة احيانا اخرى, واختلاق قصص عبدة الشياطين كهواية.
لكن ما صدمني وصعقني,بس مش كتير, كان مقالة لموقع قناة MBC, نفس العنوان ونفس المحتوى تقريبا.
يعني تضليل اكبر و على معيار اكبر.
انا متئكد ان الجهل, وعدم التحري من دقة المصادر هو العامل الاساسي الذي ادى لهذا الغلط.
و ان دل كل ذلك على شيْ فهو, اعتباطية و نذالة الاعلام العربي "المستقل" المنادي بالحرية,فبالرغم من الامكانيات الهائلة لشبكة
 كالMBC و العربية, يقعون باخطاء حقيرة.
 فما بالك باخبار مصيرية, او على الاقل تؤثر على مجرى حياة المواطن, فما البالك بالفبركة المتعمدة و شهود العيان! و "الناشطين الحقوقين" التي تنشر كلماتهم بال"العواجل" وكأنها مسلمات! 
وحيد قرن ينطحكوا ,و نخلص.

English Version will follow as soon as possible.

AbuYousef!

One of a few scattered artworks, that one can simply recognize a bare Jordanian character.
It even retains a certain part of the 90's awesome Ammani , maybe not as awesome yet quite nostalgic, legacy.
It ,sort of,samples the baseline of one of my all time personal  favorite 70's hit Pop Muzik. To be frank I'm not sure whether I even like it because it sounds like "Abu Yousef.

Now  you should check this out! it's even 90ier than the 90's!
E3teeeha cassettes! Sorry I had to say it. 

Well, while Googling for some extra "Abu Yousef" material long time ago, I stumbles across the following video. Probably the coolest kick ass Arabic teacher(despite the cheesiness).


Some say that he's afraid of Taxi drivers, and there's a Flafel restaurant ,around the 1st Circle, named after him.... All we know he's called Abu Yousef.
By the way, does anyone know the real name of  Abu Yousef?

A glimpse of Vulnerability.

 Writing while world's abandon me, trying to depict what on mind or in body into world's, world's that are not mine.
depiction is the world. Thoughts were never bytes of data, or Nerve impulses.

At Eternity's Gate


 thought's have been merely visuals, visuals that I can't draw, though I can amusingly look at.
Scared, horrified, and seldom happy. Happy? a word that has been booed by my mind, neither"Happy" visuals were visualized, nor paints where draw.

The Starry Night
