Eyeela Tak....

Post by Who2 » Mon Jun 30, 2014 12:11 pm

My new word which after giving up on web translators and speaking 'For your Family' locally, is the above 'eyeel Tak if your Cairean the posh version is 'Eyela Tak
Thats after learning the web version which sounded like 'Yarilla Tikka
Anyhow my 'Ramadan kareem bit has been done, 6 boxes of posh chocs from the new Gezzira patisserie and a box for myself, handed out to my neighbors, which on tasting mine I'm using as emergency supplies for mini prezzies, because my chocolates tasted like crap to be honest.
So 'kulsaana winta tieb all, the correct response is "winta tieb, got it ?... :cool:

Ps: 'bloody difficult arabic least you can have fun with french...it took me a good 24hrs of practice to get it to sound right, but! it works.
My favorite shouted is "ekfel el bab warack, which is 'shut the gate cheers!

My favourite at the moment is "law samaht, shaggar it'takyeef" (please turn on the air condition). I don't suppose it's much help in Luxor at the present time, so they tell me :(
