Christmas Series: Beirut Chants Till December 23rd! And its Free

I love Classical music. Whether it’s one musician, a quartet, a choir a whole orchestra or all of the above. Christmas is an especially magical time for such performances in Beirut’s many, many historic churches.
For 7 years now, Beirut Chants has been bringing to life these churches with local and international acts of all kinds: choral, sacred music, chamber and philharmonic orchestra performances and appearances by international soloists.

Beirut Has Always Been A Wonder City

The New7Wonders results were out yesterday and Beirut was “voted” as one of the new New7Wonders cities. It’s funny how we spent millions of dollars campaigning for Jeita and it lost, while barely anyone campaigned for Beirut and it won.

I am wondering how Doha made it on that list though.

I can’t believe it took them this long to come up with this simple and safer option to prevent trucks from crossing the bridge. Let’s just hope the height limiter is a solid one and won’t break at the first storm.

Lebanese Students Win Gold At The Seoul International Invention Fair 2014

A group of Jamhour students apparently impressed at the Seoul International Invention Fair 2014 and won the first prize with their “Controlling The Mind” invention. To be honest, I didn’t really understand what their invention is nor what they really won because I barely found information about it anywhere.

This ad cracked me up because I never know what to get my dad and always end up buying a tie, a shirt or a scarf. Unfortunately, my dad doesn’t hunt so the rifle is not a good idea.
