'Anaa aSlan Baakistaanii wa laakin darastu allughal`arabiah wa ajdaadi minal`Iraaq, wa 'anaa jadiid hinaa...
Took a few semesters of Arabic, but its been a few years since I have practiced it.
Get a chance to practice my Arabic, meet like minded people, and hopefully form some lasting friendships.

Hi Rawi! Thanks for being a member of Social Fluency. We are trying to get the word out in San Francisco about our workshops, so we're offering a 2 for 1 deal if you can find a friend or colleague to bring with you. Let me know if you have any questions. See you soon, Araya :-)
Hi Rawi, Welcome to the group, I look forward to meeting you at one of our events.
Welcome to the group, looking forward to having you at out next meetup.
Hi Rawi! I think comedies would be great and old film classics and then the occasional historical/political film would be good too for a Yalla Arabi screening...hadn't thought about shorts but if we can get several together that can work back to back...The main prerequisite is that they are in Arabic with English subtitles...I did reply to your email BTW...it was Jan 3rd...I can forward it to you again;) You emailed, texted and left a message within the same hour, then i emailed you! LOL!
Rawi, you should meet my good friend, Yousef Mamsa, who is also from Pakistan. He's a member of Yalla Arabi and lives in San Francisco. Are you on Facebook? If so I can connect you two.
Ahlan we sahlan Rawi! Thank you for joining Yalla Arabi! I met you at the Arab Film Festival last October. I'm not sure you remember me but we chatted for a long time. I'm an arts/culture writer for Aslan Media and I was there covering the Arab Film Festival. I also am on the Board of Trustees for Golden Thread Productions, a Middle Eastern theater company in San Francisco. You should send me your headshot and bio--we are always looking for actors. Hope to see you soon, insha'Allah.
Ahlan wa sahlan Rawi! Hope to see you at a meetup soon. You would be a great help in discovering the best Arabic films to screen for the group!
Welcome to my group! I hope to see you in many workshops. Let me know if you have any questions. Mike
