One year ago, estimately in the month of May, I was announcing to some neighbors that I was going to leave them and decided to work overseas. At that time I told them a joke that my name would be renamed or translated as Al Farid when I started to life in Arabic Country because there are no vowel in Arabic letters so that It will be difficult to write Alfred -my name- in Arabic.
Now, I’m working in Kuwait. I have a civil-ID, which is written in Arabic. And yes, the joke is not anymore a joke. Now some Arabic people who doesn’t speak English call me Al Farid. My name is translated into Al Farid.
And today, when I created this new blog, I tried several other words and none of them were available. I gave up. I tried to name this blog Alfarid. Unfortunately wordpress accept it. And from now on, I will start this “alfarid” blog as my new blog in English. 🙂
