Overdoing the World Cup 2010 – IV

Remember the World Cup manakish? One of my friends sent me the following pictures he found on Facebook of the bakery that is making those manakish. It is located in Haret Hreik.

A heart for Philippe


Dear readers, please take a moment to read this message.

Philippe was born with a cardiomyopathy.He is 25 years old.

His condition has changed since last Christmas. He has fluids in the lungs, oedemas in the legs and had a thrombosis on may 9th.
His cardiologist as well as other specialists all agree that only a HEART TRANSPLANT can save him.

The operation will take place at the Georges Pompidou hospital in Paris. Philippe doesn’t have any healthcare coverage in France since he is Lebanese and the operation costs 220 000 euros approximately, and his family can’t pay this sum on their own.

We call all friends, families, friends of friends and random strangers to help philippe get his operation.

A bank account has been created in Lebanon, Paris, and a Paypal account is available for overseas donations.

Money has no value by itself, it all depends on what you do with it.

Thank you for your help.

Overdoing the World Cup 2010 – III

Looks like someone woke up early today and thought of reworking the traditional Lebanese Manakish to turn them into World Cup Manakish!! (apparently through food coloring substances).

Overdoing the World Cup 2010 – II

I was in Tripoli last Saturday on the way to El-Mina when I spotted this building covered with German flags on all sides! And obviously that fanatic supporter Rabah Assafiri is so proud of himself that he’s even displaying his name on a flag for Bayern Munich… probably to get attention? He got mine at least.

Tripoli building

There’s probably more flags on this building than on Berlin’s presidential palace!
