Ramadan TV

I know some people dont watch the tv shows during Ramadan, and a lot of people do watch the new tv shows. There is one show which I have been watching every night thanks to Cute UAE for giving me the timing, and that is Freej. I cant recommend this show enough! I keep laughing from all the things they keep doing, and how it shows Dubai in a different light for the first time. It is extremely well done, and the stories well thought out. I really enjoy, and Um Khamaas makes me laugh so hard, and her mom is funny as hell.


The other thing that I noticed about tv during Ramadan is all the cooking oil advertisements, and the perfume advertisements. On MBC, ART, Dubai, and Alrai. There just so many cooking ads and there would be three cooking oil ads all after each other, I find that to be funny as hell.

Update: Freej is on at 12 or 12:30am (Kuwait Time) on Dubai TV.

A guy who is just trying to enjoy life!

    well i don’t find the ads funny…i swear i feel like sueing the guys who put those food commercials on in the middle of ramadan…..but thats their tactic, anything looks soo good when ur that hungry :)

  2. Eddy: I dont find the ad funny, I find it funny that they put three competing products in ads all after each other! hahaha!

  3. yeah Freej is hilarious, when i manage to understand what they’re actually saying.. guess im not used to the emaraty dialect :(

    There are feedback forms for you to fill at the website. However, we’ll soon post up a questionnaire for you to fill hoping for your cooperation ;)

    Mohammad Saeed Harib has a personal journal that you can check out and you can express your comments on http://www.lammtown.com

    I apologize to those of you who can’t understand the 3iyayiz’s dialect that is used in the series, however, FYI, this is not our typical dialect, Mohammad have simplified it A LOT in order for the non-U.A.E. viewers to understand it. For those of you who are having difficulty grasping the meanings of some words, don’t worry all Arabic words share the same roots, just think of it for a second and it’ll eventually sink in, especially that he managed to capture the expressions quite well of any 3iyoooooooz!

    Thank you Marzooooooooooouk for posting this lovely entry!!! You have made my day!!! And I’m really glad that you are enjoying the show!!! Especially for an anime critics!!!

    Ramadhaaaaaaaaan KAREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEM ( *!!!
    Cute U.A.E.
