I loved how “firm” was the captain while speaking to the fighting people.

Reaction to the smoking ban at ABC

You most probably know that ABC Achrafieh became a smoke free mall as of the 1st of March. Check how some people are reacting to this ban.

Some of them are simply putting off their cigarettes on the no-smoking sign. Gotta love how classy these people are!

Confessions of Lebanese taxi driver

Here’s one epic taxi driver. In just less than 30 seconds he managed to tell two Norwegian actors about  his dream, almost crash into another car, and of course curse at the other driver!

The two actors are actually Jorgen and Matias, who over a period of 3 weeks shot a web series of 14 episodes while walking across Lebanon from north to south, and in each episode they chose to walk for a different cause, thus the name of series “Walk of Causes”. You may check the series website here, and their blog here.

Ethiopian maid beaten in the street

This video was published by LBC and shows barbarism at its best. For some unknown reason, a man was publicly beating an Ethiopian maid reportedly in front of the Ethiopian embassy before forcing her to get into his car and take her back home.

It was however possible to take note of his car plate number, and he was later identified as “Mahmoud Zhairani”. Now sure how accurate is this information, but if you know the guy and turns up to be the same one showing in the video, make sure to slap him, with a baseball bat, a thousand time.

Update:

LBC just tweeted that the man was identified as Ali Mahfouz.

Tons of rotten meat confiscated in Beirut

Al Jadeed news reported last night that around 40 tons of rotten meat was confiscated from “Al-Natrour” warehouse in Sabra yesterday ( Watch the video above for more details).

What’s more surprising than traders dealing with such big quantities of expired goods is the fact that the mentioned warehouse used to supply very famous hotels and restaurants in Beirut with meat! I’m really curious to the know the list of these places that dealt with Al-Natour.

Wrestling event at Beirut Sports City

I never knew wrestling events happen here! According to this page, there’s an upcoming match between two female wrestlers, Maiju Kujala and Juliana Carneiro, taking place at Beirut Sports City this Friday March 9th. I have no idea however at what time is it happening and where can you buy tickets from. If you have any more details please share them in the comments.

I’ve done a quick search on Google and found that a cage fight event was held at Habtoor Grand Hotel last month as well. You can watch a video of it here.

Update:

I just heard a radio ad for the event. It will begin at 7PM on Friday with more than 30 fighters of several nationalities (including Lebanese) participating, and ticket are available starting $20 up to $150 at Virgin Megastore.

Sawfar after last week’s storm

I took these photos in Sawfar last Sunday, I’ve never seen that much snow in the area before!

One good thing I noticed while driving is how better the road has become if you’re coming from Hazmieh, it used to be a living hell with the all the works that have been ongoing for more than a year now to widen the road. I guess a good part of the project is now done and the road condition became much better with separators at certain areas to keep the drivers in opposite direction from jumping to your lanes.

Snow in Faraya covering the chairlifts

That’s how much snow there is Faraya righ now, the chairlifts are all covered!

I remember the people responsible for the pistes were struggling in the past couple of years to bring more snow into the tracks so people can actually ski, now they sure have to take lot of snow so that at least the chairlifts can operate! Anyway, one thing is for sure, the season is definitely going to last till early in May I believe!
