Yohan Storm Damages Ain El-Mreisseh Cornishe

IMG_8420.JPG

This Yohan storm might not be as intense and cold as Zina that Lebanon witnessed a few weeks ago, but it is sure bringing massive high waves and very strong wind.

These photos were all taken this morning by Tarek Hajjar and Bilal Soubra and show the damage caused to the cornishe in Ain El Mreisseh due to the high waves. I also heard on the news that part of Dbayeh maritime road close to Nahr El Kalb collapsed due to the storm.

On the bright side, fixing the barrier may now get the municipality a bit busy now and probably distract them from the possible removal of the the cool graffiti around Beirut.

Zaatar Zein is back!

IMG_8320.JPG

Back in 2011, Zein El Atat took a blow when his products were banned in Lebanon and several Gulf countries. But for some reason, he seems to be back now with these ugly billboards and an even uglier TV commercial!

With the food safety campaign being carried out in Lebanon right now, I believe Zein El Atat’s comeback is more like a slap on Abou Faour’s face!

Charlie Abdo – Cartoon Series by Claude El Khal

Most of you shared this cartoon of Mia Khalifa supporting Charlie Hebdo in her “own way”, but what you probably didn’t know is that it was only the first in a series by Claude El Khal, meant to illustrate Lebanese events in the form magazine covers similar to Charlie Hebdo, but this one is instead called “Charlie Abdo” (pronounced 3abdo).

FARaya WEST
Pape final
Hakim final

Make sure to check the cartoons that Claude is posting on a daily basis on his blog “Claude El Khal – Cartoons“.

A half barbershop half Shisha place!

10930997_797200326984070_5937108619920226586_n

This barber at Aisha Bakkar in Beirut is “tweaking” the haircutting experience for his clients by offering them a Shisha, and he seems to have even cut his capes to let the hose pass through them… Let’s hope it doesn’t become a trend among barbershops!
