Lebanonfiles And OTV Just Translated and Published a Hoax

Update: Add to the list Al Jomhouria
LBCI on the other hand fact-checked the story before posting it and stated that it’s a hoax.

PZZA.Co Now Serving Gluten Free Pizzas

I passed by Pzzaco yesterday to try out their new gluten-free pizzas before they start serving them today. I have to say I wasn’t expecting to like it but it wasn’t bad at all. Of course it’s not as good as the normal crust but it’s a great compromise if you are on a gluten-free diet or are gluten intolerant. I personally tried the Marguerita gluten-free pizza but it’s available for all pizzas except the Calzone, at least for now.
I love Pzzaco and I think their crust is one of the best in town, so go try it out!

Fattouch Denied Hitting Anyone, Manale Daou To File A Lawsuit

Zahle’s MP denied that he hit the girl and stated that he only raised his voice at her, which is also against the law of course. In all cases, Manale Daou has filed a lawsuit against Fattouche, which is the right thing to do, so let’s hope justice takes its course.
US President Obama got asked to show his ID while voting in Chicago two years ago. Imagine the same scenario happening in Lebanon with Fattouche in Lebanon.

Samir Kassab Is Also Lebanese And Is Still Missing In Syria

We all want the kidnapped Lebanese soldiers to be freed, and it is a matter of utmost importance, but we should give the same importance to any Lebanese kidnapped in Syria, whether they are soldiers, journalists, activists or just normal citizens. Samir Kassab is a Lebanese and the Lebanese authorities should free him the soonest possible, specially that there are no politics involved here.
It’s been a year already and no one knows where Samir is.

Lebanese Celebrities That Wore Oscar De La Renta

I didn’t know much about Oscar De La Renta until he died and I didn’t even notice he was the one who designed Amal Alameddine’s wedding dress even though I did write about the wedding and posted pictures even. In all cases, I was reading about him a bit and I ran a quick search to see which Lebanese wore Oscar de la Renta dresses and found Elissa, Haifa and Amal. There’s also Shakira if you consider her somehow Lebanese lol!
I am sure there are others but those are the ones I found with the help of my good friend Serah.

Fattouch on Wikipedia: “Animal Sauvage et Gros Cochon de Zahle”


After his disgusting crime and even more filthy press conference, it’s sort of like beating a dead horse now. But, the Wikipedia page of the Lebanese Cabinet has been edited to read “Nicola Fattoush Animal Sauvage et Gros Cochon de Zahle, and his religious sect as “Animalism and Frustrated Hayawein”.

Beirut-Based Mukhi Sisters Among The Top 5 Middle Eastern Daywear Jewelry Designers

Style.com (Arabia) featured the Mukhi Sisters as one of the top 5 Middle Eastern Jewelry Designers. I don’t know much about jewelry but I’ve met the Mukhi sisters on several occasions and appreciate their work and designs. One more reason why I like them is that their designs would fit perfectly on some Game of Thrones characters and I am a huge GOT fan.

#ToOurCountries (The Original Version)

I don’t know if it’s true, but some are saying that the two girls behind the #ToOurCountries video that went viral are pro-Assad. Here’s how these guys responded to that story.
I personally think we should all be pro-humanity these days and try to stop the violence around us and help out those in need as much as possible.

26 Ways Living in Lebanon Can Kill You – Construction Sites

Third in a series by Noura Andrea Nassar titled “26 Ways Living in Lebanon Can Kill You”
Usually, noise, pollution, dust, basic safety, etc. are integral when it comes to a construction site in a densely populated area. All those things are rarely ever enforced in Lebanese construction sites.

Actors You Find In All Lebanese TV Series

I don’t follow Lebanese TV series but every time I spot one of these shows on TV, I find the same people acting. Whether it’s drama, comedy, action, family, lifestyle, Syrian-Lebanese, Egyptian-Lebanese, Turkish-Lebanese or any type for that sake, you always find the same people in different roles, as if we only have a dozen of actors in Lebanon and that’s about it.
