Uber Now Available In Beirut

I’ve always heard about Uber but never tried it to be honest. Uber is a transportation app that you can use to request a ride by pinning your location and get picked up within minutes. Uber is available in more than 130 cities and 30 countries.
If you are a new user, here how it works:
1- Download Uber via the App Store on iOs & Android.
2- No need for cash. Register your account with a credit card (Visa/MasterCard).
3- Drop the pin on a pick up location & track the car in real-time.

UBER Launched in Beirut!


WOOOOOOW! I can’t believe Uber is now in Beirut! Uber is the awesome app I use to get around when I’m in a hurry and don’t feel like taking public transportation abroad.

Beirut To Nowhere

[Vimeo]
This is a documentary on the Fouad Boutros highway, a motorway connecting Hekmeh in Achrafieh to Mar Mikhail and piercing through one of the city’s old neighborhoods. There are a lot of people working against the project, but I don’t think it’s as bad as they are making it look. In fact, I got a presentation a while back on the project that I will share soon with you.

Lebanese Amhaz Electronics Hit By U.S. Sanctions

As far as I know, Ahmaz people were not really hiding their political allegiance, so they must have seen it coming. For those of you who don’t know Stars Group, they basically mobile phones to the majority of shops in Lebanon and always get the new phones ahead of others somehow.

Of all these things is made my summer wine (round up)

It could be the calmness of the summer, or the bad economic situation, or the languishness of Ramadan, whatever it is, there's precious little material rolling in. Still, I managed to gather those.

Newly Discovered Ruins Being Plundered in Downtown Beirut


It looks like the series of outright destruction and theft of Lebanon’s archeological treasures continues. Today, while walking by, a close friend noticed ruins being excavated on a new lot prepped for construction between the Bank Audi HQ and the Elie Saab HQ, just a stone’s throw away from the Prime Minister’s HQ (quite a fancy neighborhood, huh?).

How To Ramadan

What? A non-Muslim telling Muslims how to fast? The nerve!

Lebanon To Import Water From Turkey To Fight Shortage

Lebanon is in the extremely high water stress level [Map]
The previous government had plans to sell water to Cyprus less than a year ago and now we are planning to buy water from Turkey through Spragg bags due to the shortage we’re facing.
This is both sad and hilarious!

How To Find Your Soul Mate


Although my Facebook timeline has been flooded with puffy white wedding gowns and cute chubby newborns lately, a portion of my dearest friends (both ladies and gents) are a long way from settling down anytime soon. I say this with confidence because they’re either single and really fed up with mingling or they’re dating someone casually who they would never dream of introducing to the parents.

Batroun Khallia A7la: Beach Clean Up Campaign

A group of young Lebanese have started an initiative “Batroun Khalia A7la” aimed at keeping beaches in Batroun clean. They’ve already cleaned with the help of volunteers the Ghleyghile beach and gathered over 40 trash bags that included a TV, some car wheels, used baby diapers among other things. I uploaded before and after pictures from their Facebook page.

Hallab tastes much better than their bland campaign.


I am glad Hallab 1881 tastes much better than its campaign, because the campaign it launched is bland - "incolore inodore".

Between The World Cup And Israel’s Military Offensive Against Gaza

Ever since Israel started its offensive against Gaza few days ago, a lot of people have been showing their support for the Palestinian people while some of them have been bashing football fans for not caring enough about Gaza and cheering for their teams. “How could you watch the World Cup while children are dying?” and “Shame on you for ignoring the massacres on Palestine” are some of the messages I got and I couldn’t but laugh at them.
