The evidence focuses on the day-to-day details of the lives of seven different neighbours who live in the same apartment building ysknwn fy nfs l` imr@/ lmbn~ lskny.

This is a 4 proportion upright. In the first part, we’re going to firstly learn the short scenario, in Egyptian Arabic. The next 3 percentages will help you understand it in detail.

About the clip` n lmqT `:

The scene is taken from a family outing. The 5 maidens sitting at the counter are: Laila, Lamia( sisters/ aunts) and Hala( Laila’s daughter ), Du’aa& Hiba( Lamia’s daughters ). The situation concentrating on a common thing that happens with every Arab family when they eat out. Instead of enjoying their hour, they say about the food they will order and how much it expenses( LOL )!
