In the name of the people - via Marcel Ghanem


Turns out the campaign which I have talked about earlier "in the name of the people" is nothing but an extension to the ads for "kalam ra2is" (words of a president) as hosted by Marcel Ghanem on LBC. I said before, follow the money, and not it is there - the entity which put this campaign will recoup its investment ten fold from advertisers. Voila!

Acting Beirut Governor Accused of Harassment : Governor Says Video Is Fake

I just finished watching that video everyone’s been sharing about Beirut’s Acting governor supposedly harassing a woman and I honestly have mixed feelings about. While it’s unfair what this woman is going through, she sounded like she’s flirting as well, given that we don’t know what happened the first time. She’s obviously laying a trap to the man but I don’t think that’s the best way to do it.

A Thirst For Silence

Breakfast at Tivoli Jardim Hotel, Lisbon

Honestly, I rarely get impressed with the breakfast normally served at four-star hotels, but the one I had at Tivoli Jardim Hotel was excellent. Simply extraordinary. I fell in love with this restaurant the minute I stepped into it. Restaurant Olivier Avenida is a restaurant bar during the day/night and breakfast space in the morning, guests are welcome into an utterly unique space to enjoy a wide choice of sumptuous breakfast choices.

Breakfast at Hotel Claridge, Paris

Having breakfast in hotels is one of my favorite things to do while traveling. We stayed at Le Claridge, a four-star hotel with a luxurious feel in the heart Paris. I was enticed to wake up early to try out their breakfast… The general breakfast setup looked and felt good but I am not sure I would recommend this place or try it again…

Discover the Origins of Cookies

In the United States and Canada a cookie is a small, flat, baked treat, usually containing flour, eggs, sugar, and either butter or cooking oil, and often including ingredients such as raisins, oats, or chocolate chips. Cookies are most commonly baked until crisp or just long enough that they remain soft, but some kinds of cookies are not baked at all. Cookies are made in a wide variety of styles, using an array of ingredients including sugars, spices, chocolate, butter, peanut butter, nuts, or dried fruits. The softness of the cookie may depend on how long it is baked.
