Ward El-Khal busted?

Looks to me more like part of a prank TV show to be aired during Ramadan, don’t you think?

Update:

 

According to this article in elnashra fan, the video turned to be nothing but a teaser for an upcoming series starring Ward, and the people behind it thought of posting the video on YouTube to create a media buzz around their new work, which eventually worked since they got more than 60,000 views in a couple of days. Anyway, I personally think it falls under cheap advertising…

Update:

The video turned out to be real and Ward is filing a lawsuit against whoever is behind the whole thing.

Update:

The whole thing was a promotion to LBCI’s new drama channel!

A tribute to Kibbeh Nayyeh

Joking aside, Kibbeh Nayyeh is probably the best Lebanese food selection, and is best made at the southern villages of Lebanon.

LYRICS:

I went downstairs to the fridge
looking for some kind of dish
maybe kabob or some riz
but you were in my way

So that is when I tried
to reach to the other side
to maybe get spinach pie
but you were in my way

Meat overflowing
ripped leaf mint was showing
olive oil a-flowing
I like where this is going

Hey, I just met you
and this is crazy
but I want to eat you
kibbeh nayeh

Hey, I just met you
but you look tasty
I’m gonna eat you
kibbeh nayeh

I don’t know how long it’s been
that you’ve been there in the fridge
I do not want to get sick
cuz you were in my way

Because you’re raw and not fried
don’t want to get E coli
because then I would have to die
cuz you were in my way

Meat overflowing
ripped leaf mint was showing
olive oil a-flowing
Appetite is growing

[CHORUS]

Before you came into my life, I wasn’t so fat
I wasn’t so fat. I wasn’t so so fat
Before you came into my life, I wore the small pants
and you should know that I’m getting so so fat.

Reminds me of the Lahme song

Ahmad Al-Assir doing stuff!

If something will ever be written in the history of Lebanon about Ahmad Al-Assir, this blog is going to be a great reference!

Someone decided to document the very interesting life of Al-Assir online and is so far doing a great job! Make sure to check it out here.

Beit Misk copycat advertising

Update:

As pointed out by Tarek, the resemblance between the two ads was originally spotted by N. Zgheib, and you may check Tarek’s post about it here.

Picadilly Theater – Hamra

Make sure to check these cool recent photos Al-Akhbar has published from inside the Picadilly theater in Hamra. This theater is most famous for hosting several performances by Fayrouz and Ziad El-Rahbani, but a fire unfortunately broke out in it back in the 90s and has been inactive ever since.

In an ideal world, someone would take the initiative to renovate the Picadilly and Zaid El-Rahbani would come back to it for a new performance! (One can always dream..)

More on the discrimination at our beach resorts

It looks more like a hopeless case to me… The anti racism movement called several beach resorts and none of them except one at Saida (Zahrat Al-Khayzaran) allows maids to swim in the pools, moreover, the circular issued earlier by the ministry of tourism banning discrimination at beaches seemed irrelevant to them.

The problem however isn’t actually about how the owners of these resorts think, it’s in fact about how WE think. Resorts owners will never mind charging maids regular fees and let them swim instead of admitting them for free to just watch over kids, but it’s us who are deep down racist and wouldn’t accept swimming with our maids, and those resorts are therefore just catering to our demands!

So until we become more civilized and accept the fact that people of different skin color are equal to us, you’ll keep seeing videos like the one above.
