Back From Egypt

May 29, 2007 at 11:09 pm | Posted in Egypt, Personal | Comments Off on Back From Egypt

So I spent two relaxing weeks in Egypt. Well to be honest they weren’t that relaxing due to the driving πŸ™‚ It always stresses me out when I go driving there. But it was great to see my family and friends again.

Some of the highlights of the trip in bullet form:

  • 13-14 hr wait in an Airport is hell! But whats worse is when they tell you your flight has been delayed another 2.5 hrs!
  • I attended Hany’s wedding, I have pics/video but I’ll leave it to him to post it to his blog πŸ™‚ I haven’t been at work one day and there is great demand to see Hany dancing πŸ˜› There was talk of putting it in a room with a Projector…Hmmm
  • Some purchases I made in Egypt: Egypt (red)Β + Ahly (blue) soccer jerseys – yesΒ I know blue for Ahly is weird, but I already had bought the Red Egypt shirt (they did not have White) plus – I like Blue :P, I also got some Arabic movie DVDS – I miss Arabic movies, some miscellaneous gifts that represent Egypt (e.g. jewelry boxes, papyrus scrolls, etc.)
  • Lots of playing World of Warcraft – This game is just too addictive and should never have been made πŸ˜›
  • Egypt is really really hot!
  • Driving a 1300cc car made me appreciate my Mazda3 (2000cc) – What made me appreciate it even more was driving a car with no A/C, and no radio/cassette player πŸ™‚
  • I forgot that if I want to do a simple task that should take no longer than 30 minutes, then to plan the whole morning for it πŸ™‚

Anyway that’s all for now – Been a while since I blogged – you can all blame WoW for that πŸ˜›


Virtual Career Fair : Come Visit Microsoft in Second Life

May 12, 2007 at 3:07 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

I’m about to go to the airport in a couple of hours for my flight to Egypt. But I just noticed this and I thought this would be very very cool! Microsoft is going to be hosting a “Virtual Career Fair”. It seems it is not just Microsoft in this career fair as I am noticing other companies too

What’s great though is that if you submit your resume and the interviewers like it. You can do a real interview with Microsoft recruiters right then and there.

The career fair will be held in Second Life. I’ve personally never used it, but from my understanding its a large 3D social world where you can basically do anything you want. It’s so popular, a lot of companies have some sort of presence in there.

If you’re interested, give it a shot. You’ve got nothing to lose, but you must hurry! Deadline to submit resume’s is May 14th (that’s why I’m posting this now – because by the time I get to Egypt the deadline would have passed!)

I will be travelling to Egypt for a couple of weeks tomorrow…Some of you may know this already…but I’m mentioning it here in case I still haven’t mentioned it to someone!

I am looking forward to coming back to Egypt as I miss it quite more than I expected! Looking forward to seeing all my friends again. If you want to meet up, email me or leave me a comment – I don’t know my cell phone number there yet, so you won’t be able to call πŸ˜›
