2006 - Lebanon

My mother said,
They still looked beautiful
while they were picking them up
in pieces,
the children.

Holidays Part 4

Playing backgammon in front of the butcher in al-Zarif I have gone on my annual Trek to the Motherland: I have to replenish my body and soul with energy in order to be able to deal with another year of Lebanon. It is a country of incredible beauty and wonderful people, but the place is a paradox. What you experience in Lebanon in one year, you experience in another country in a life time. The pace of living is so fast, yet so relaxed at the same time, that it drains your energy like no other place.

That poor Syrian kid got beaten again!!

Al Jadeed TV interviewed the parents of both Abbas and Khaled last night. Abbas’ father defended himself by claiming that who recorded the video are actually a group of teens and that he got upset when he saw it. It was all fine until the correspondent moved to Khaled’s mother and asked her how did she react to what happened, the woman then explained that she took the kid to his uncle who beat and kicked him because of that video! (Start watching at the 9m00s mark)
I’m surprised the correspondent remained calm and didn’t even argue about it with the woman.

Subway: Why Lebanon Hasn’t Taken to Subway… I Like It

I’m not sure why our country hasn’t taken to Subway. The restaurant’s food is fresh, fulfilling and relatively healthy, surely healthier then all other fast food ideas. My Subway story started back during my university years; a branch opened on the Zalka highway and I remember passing by every other day of the week to enjoy »more...

Flare Pan: Cooking Just Got Faster

A new pan called “Flare Pan” cooks 30% faster than standard pans, due to a new design inspired by jet and rocket engines, which mean it has a series of tapered fins which captures and channels heat from the flame, resulting in efficient and even heat distribution. Developed by University of Oxford engineer Thomas Povey »more...

Malak Al Taouk Has a New Logo

I spotted Malak Al Taouk‘s new logo in Kaslik yesterday and it looks much nicer than the old one. I don’t know why I’ve never liked this place even though a lot of my friends love it. I’ve only tried it once some 6 or 7 years ago and that was it.

Arz Water

I spotted the new slogan on Facebook and I thought it was a new bottled mineral water brand but it looks like it’s been out for years. That’s pretty weird because I never spotted it in any supermarket. I’ve tried most of the brands we have in Lebanon and my favorite has always been Tannourine.

History will judge, oh - and airplane crashes.

Now that tragedy has struck again for Malaysian airlines after the first disaster of #MH370 (the current one is the downing of one of their planes #MH17 over Ukraine), I was really - and I mean really - eager to see how Malaysian transport minister Hishammuddin Hussein was going to handle this one. Tough luck, in a country not exactly known to be a full democracy, Hussein was actually discharged from his post.
Considering he was also the minister of defence (and from what I understood still is), he is also - no, no, nothing to do with corruption and nepotism - the cousin of Najib Razzak, the prime minister. So going as far as discharging him from his post truly speaks volumes about how bad the situation was and the ultimately bad job he did.

Ellie Goulding live at Biel next week

Compared to all the artists coming to Lebanon this summer, Ellie Goulding’s concert on July 23rd at Biel is definitely going to be the biggest act this season!
I already got my tickets from Mix FM and you can reserve yours online at Ticketing Box Office or at any Virgin store in Lebanon.
