Noman & Malsoon from Zain <3

Last night when I was about to leave the house, I got a bag from Zain Telecom with the famous Noman and Malsoon ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Remember them?

I actually took the bag with me in the car – like a kid with a new toy – I did not want to keep it at home! Once I got back home… I started the photo shoot ๐Ÿ˜›

Love how the spirit and the hype of Iftah Ya Simsim is all back now…ย A very popular show that aired back in the late 1970s to early 1980s and was funded/produced theย Gulf Cooperation Council Joint Program Production Institution (GCCJPPI –ย ู…ุคุณุณุฉ ุงู„ุฅู†ุชุงุฌ ุงู„ุจุฑุงู…ุฌูŠ ุงู„ู…ุดุชุฑูƒย )

Thats No’man (ู†ุนู…ุงู†) above… whos voice was Abdullah AlHubail first and then Sa’ad Abbas later on

And below is Malsoon, whos voice was performed by Tawfik AlAsha

Oh and I got a Mini Noman 1GB USB

By the way, Zain got the copy rights to do so from GCCPPI ๐Ÿ˜‰ And each toy is labeled with both; Zain and GCCPPI logos

Here are the two show opening intros (I believe one was done in the 1970’s and the other in the 1980s)







And here is Zain’s ad… performed by young and fabulous Hala AlTurk (ุญู„ุง ุงู„ุชุฑูƒ)… loved how they brought in the original music tunes using the same musical instruments into life in 2011… with Hala dancing around in what looks like the exact same studio with kids and characters all around and all dressed in the old 1970s-80s outfits! Fabulous!!!!!! She was dancing and so into it (God bless her) I specially love her moves at time 0:41!




Now the question is… my 1 and a half year old niece, whos name is Zain was so jealous of me last night LOL! Here is the story, her mom and aunties (us) usually play her music from our times – specially those of children programs! The music of Iftah Ya Simsim was not new to her at all, but she kinda got a feeling that the ad was done for her, the name of the company is Zain anyways, and a new song was all produced just for her… Whenever its on, she goes around in circles and dance to the beat!!!

Sooooooo, although hard and difficult, I’m thinking of gifting her those two characters, she already gave me “That Look” on her face when she saw me holding them! I’m gonna be the bigger person here (literally) and give’em to her! LOL


Thank you Zain for your thoughtfulness and for bringing back memories ๐Ÿ˜‰ AMAZING ads… and very nice gifts ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Special thanks to Ms. Hala Abu AlHasan ๐Ÿ˜‰
