VEA: A Better Use for Old Tires in Lebanon [Hint: NOT Burning Them]


The image above is almost an icon for Lebanon in recent history. Existential crisis? World Ward? Fight with your neighbor? Pissed Barca lost to Real? Let’s burn a tire! And even though I never really got the point or effectiveness of this act, I’ve come to terms with the fact Lebanese folks from all sects and walks of life will resort to this unhealthy, ugly and environmentally irresponsible act.

One Year After #IVYsBigReveal and A New Ambassadorship

It’s been one hell of a year for me.

Exotica as part of our collective memory


I am part of the generation that remembers Exotica, not as a florist, not as a wedding supplier, not as a landscaper, not as an advertiser, but more as a part our collective memory. I am talking of a different Exotica naturally, specifically an image frozen in time, the one above.

The iPhone 6 To Be Released Officially soon in Lebanon

According to 9to5mac, Apple’s next iPhone 6 rollout will include Lebanon among others and will take place on November 14th. Back in March, we heard that the iPhone will be officially released in Lebanon but these things take time so let’s hope it works out this time.

O1NE Beirut Opening On November 7

Skybar is now closed for the winter and O1NE is preparing to open soon for an exciting second season. I’ve been to O1NE twice last year and I had a blast but I didn’t have time to write a proper review. I will try to do so by Tuesday and tell you what to expect this year.
Until then, check out Mark’s review of O1NE in Abu Dhabi which is very similar to the one in Beirut.

Lebanese-born Harry Zakour Running For Ruling Party Chairmanship in Ghana

I was googling his name and the second article I found was about him slapping some customer but it seems he had a good reason to do so.

What a million could buy you at H and M
