My Top 5 FIFA World Cup Songs

The official song for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil is out and it’s a horrible one. I can’t believe they picked Pitbull for such a song. Looking back at the old world cup songs, whether official or not, the “Carnival de Paris” is by far my favorite one.

H3: And they Call Themselves a Burger Place…

Here we are at a place, discovered by pure coincidence. H3 burgers made us come back for it since large marketing banners on the door write about Time Out and other magazines stating that it’s the best burger in Lisbon.

Illegally Held Chimpanzee In Lebanon Freed After A Nine-Year Struggle!

Animals Lebanon recently took up the case to free Charlie, a nine year old chimpanzee that was smuggled into Lebanon in 2005 and sold to Animal City zoo, and they finally managed to free the animal yesterday after a court ruling. Charlie is the last known chimpanzee in Lebanon. He will be moved to approved chimpanzee sanctuary where he could get expert care and live with other chimpanzees in a natural enclosure.

Cozmo, Zaitunay Bay: A Casual Mix of Dining Possibilities

I’ve already visited Cozmo before, this trendy cosmopolitan restaurant located in the middle of Zaitunay Bay. On my last visit there, I tried their pizzas and other items on the menu, but this time round, I was planning on trying their sushi, especially that my friend Pedro and I were craving for some.

Aypples and Beenanas

I suppose you could say I was indirectly influenced by Mullarney’s book on the issue of letter sounds versus names. I say indirectly as I remember being taught this way myself by my mum who had read this book, so I am really just repeating my own experience. As with teaching any new skill, you need to make the information clear, simple and bite-sized. It seems to me eminently simpler to teach a child something like the sound ‘huh’ for the letter H, than to teach her the name ‘aitch’ and then have her learn the sound that it makes as a second stage. Even the vowel names don’t match the sounds they make in easy words (m-a-t, not m-ay-t, and p-i-g, not p-eye-g, for example).

Thought of the Day: Love Your Beautiful Country… A Video Says it All

We look to travel outside our country while we live in a gem that just needs some cleaning up around the edges. Together we can make a difference, each and everyone can stand strong and scream out “We want our Lebanon back…” the one with no political side affects, the one that’s always smiling to the world, the one people envy us for, the one that’s free from prejudice, pain and fear…
Many may have already seen this… But I thought I would just shed some light at how beautiful it was and can still be…

Of course it wasn’t a huge storm that hit Lebanon this morning, but if you look at what happened today after it rained for a couple of hours only, you’d think a tsunami had hit the Lebanese shores.
Here are few pictures that speak for themselves:
