Over the years, I have developed several interests:

tai chi - I love tai chi. I learnt it when I was studying in Australia [1996-98]. It stems from the Chinese martial arts. It is a discipline that allows you to discover your true physical and non-physical potential. It involves a series of slow movements, integrating the mind, body and spirit. Thus it is one way to improve physical and mental well-being. I enjoy doing it with a group but practice Tai Chi alone, especially when I travel.

music - I'm a big fan of western folk music as well as Fairuz. I enjoy golden oldies, such as the Carpenters, Peter, Paul and Mary, the Beetles, some of Frank Sinatra's and Ray Charles' music as well as Mozart's and Beethoven's symphonies.

Arabic literature - Jahiliyyah, Umawiyyah and Abbasiah Literature attracted me to it ever since I first learnt it in high school, with Mr Philip Abdul Haq. One can learn so much about the social and physical environments of those times by looking through the poems and their contents. I particularly enjoy reading and reciting Ibn el Roumi and Al Mutanabbi.

drawing - I've taken drawing lessons. I enjoy drawing old Lebanese stone houses which are abundant in the area I live in. A drawing I am proud of is one of our home in Bterram. It is still in pencil, but I love it. I hope one day to become good at watercolors.
