Yalla etbesto w edhako w rabena yostor 3aleina kolena.

  1. Taymour w Shafika (Taymour w Shafika)

The modern adaptation of Si el Sayed w Amina. I mean not only is he controlling, bossy and domineering, la w kaman el set hanem radya w sakta w saybah ye2ool/ ye3mel ely hwa 3ayzo. And seriously meen fe kamel qowaha el 3aqleya teseeb manseb wazeera 3ashan had zy Taaymour talab mnha.
