Pick Up Your Christmas Ball At Le Gray Beirut To Help Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon

If you happen to pass by Le Gray Hotel next week, go in and check out their Christmas tree in the lobby. They have Christmas balls signed by the Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon that you can take in exchange of any donation you wish to give. Once you take the ball and place the donation inside the box, replace it with a plain ball from the wooden basket on the floor.
It’s a simple and easy way to help out children in need during Christmas.

Lebanese ISF Teaching Girls How To Change A Flat Tire

I love how they chose a girl for the picture. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a girl changing a flat tire in Lebanon as there’s always some guy volunteering to do it for her. In all cases, I hate changing flat tires too and I wish someone would volunteer to change them for me.

Hiba Tawaji Doesn’t Need To Go To The Voice

Hiba is a very talented singer but I don’t know if it’s good idea to take part in the Voice, specially after what happened with Aline Lahoud and Anthony Touma. The judges are very random and she might lose out because of that, not because she’s not talented enough.
Anyway, that doesn’t mean that I am not excited about her participation and I will be encouraging her all the way till the end.

Lebanese Consume More Wine Than Beer But Are Not Drinking Enough

According to BBC’s Booz calculator, the average resident of Lebanon drinks a total of about 2.4 liters of pure alcohol a year, making it the 39th lightest-drinking country. The lightest-drinking country in the world is Kuwait with 0.1 liters while Belarus is the heaviest-drinking country with 17.5 liters.

Lebanon Is Getting Worse In Terms of Internet Freedom

Freedom on the Net 2014 is a comprehensive study of internet freedom around the globe. Internet freedom is in decline around the world and Lebanon is no exception. We moved from a 45/100 score in 2013 to 47/100 in 2014 which is not a good sign. The three emerging threats according to Freedom House are:

Snayniyeh with M&Ms and Marshmallows?

Whenever a baby gets his first tooth, Lebanese families make a traditional dish called Snayniyeh. It’s usually made out of wheat with almonds and nuts but I’ve been seeing marshmallows and M&Ms as well which is pretty weird specially that Snayniyeh is served cold. I don’t know if this is a relatively new thing but I am wondering who decided to mix marshmallows with it.
I am trying to imagine what Meghleh would taste like if we added M&Ms and marshmallows.

Minister Bou Faour having lunch with Dima Sadek
Minister Bou Faour is still issuing new lists of “bad” restaurants and supermarkets and confusing the hell out of every Lebanese. I am no longer following up on this matter but I’ve noticed that the minister is now mentioning which restaurants are no longer bad. Unfortunately he hasn’t released yet a full detailed report on the whole campaign and we can’t track the progress on the ministry’s website or anywhere.

Christian Louboutin Visiting Beirut And Loving Elissa’s Soft Singing Lips

I spotted a picture of Christian Louboutin on Le Gray Beirut’s Facebook page. I don’t know what he’s doing here exactly but he posted a picture of Elissa kissing him and complimenting her “soft singing” lips. I wish he had asked her what the hell happened to those lips? Specially the upper lip?

Ivy Reviews: The Shogun Lounge

If there’s something I love more than shopping, its shopping and sushi together, in the same place. So after doing some heavy Christmas retail therapy at Dunes Verdun on Tuesday I headed over to dinner at The Shogun Lounge, my favorite sushi spot in Verdun located on the 1st floor of the mall.

Grey Beirut’s Heartwarming Christmas Greeting Card

Grey Beirut created this beautiful greeting card to salute the Lebanese army in a very subtle and innocent way. Let’s hope that all kidnapped army members go back to their families this Christmas.

Miss World Is Not Lebanese But Her Chair Is

The chair on which Miss World sat when she won was designed and made by a Lebanese called Edmond Boutros. It seems we are only good at making chairs these days, not filling them.
It’s been almost 9 months now that we don’t have a Lebanese President.
