Like I said, at one time I think she was genuine and then things fell apart and she handled it badly. I wonder how many other children are waiting for their iPads from Aunty Hala?
LOL, that's too funny. Not mine for sure. When they are born, I'll make sure to let them know she is always ill or jet setting, poor thing.
Frankly speaking, I don't think she was ever genuine. She probably pretended well for a while because she knew that it was the only way to lure business (and writers). I cannot believe that any genuine, sane person can handle it so badly. If things were going badly, she could have probably apologized, explained things, paid whatever she could and be done with it instead of spinning yarns and yarns of crap.
By the way, the driver or "chauffer" was a pretty regular feature in her mails to me too, no matter which part of the world she claimed to be in. He always had the money too. Oh, and her sister mailed me too. This was her exact mail:
I am Dina, Hala;s sister. Fr the first tie ever she gave me her computer password! And a list of people to respond to (just 3) if they write. You are on the list.
She has bee in hospital – sinus operation and severely bleeding stomach ulcers (she keeps throwing up blood) since last Saturday midnight. She'll be released tomorrow but will call you. noy write, as she will be very tired. But she is very eager to talk to you. She told me she found her `right hand girl' in you!
The three people she is talking about must be me, you and Freelancewriter, LOL.
