Lebanese national basketball team suspended for four years

lebanese basketball

Looks like things are going from bad to worse for Lebanese Basketball. Annahar just posted a few minutes ago that the FIBA has suspended the Lebanese national team from participating in international tournaments for four years!

Wasn’t basketball the only somehow successful sport in this country? I hope politicians who have contributed to this mess are satisfied now.

Hallab 2 – Doueihy 1

I’m not sure if Hallab’s last reply is real and already on the streets, but it’s definitely cool if they did it!

Knife-crime-007

This will make you feel like we’re living in a jungle. It’s insane.

A Lebanese man got his penis cut off by his wife’s family, after he insisted on marrying her despite parental opposition from her side because they are from different sects!

Read about it all here on Annahar.

Giveaway – Weekend stay for two at Pinea Campus

Pinea Campus (5)

Pinea Campus is one of the few campsites I know about in Lebanon. The place is located in Haitoura, Jezzine and spreads on a 3,000 sqm land that is surrounded by a large stone pines forest.

Pinea Campus can currently accommodate more than 50 campers throughout the summers in high quality waterproof tents that can fit 2 to 8 people each, which is pretty suitable in my opinions for couples, families and even group of friends. The amenities also include camping mattresses, covers and pillows, toilets, and showers.

Pinea Campus (3) Pinea Campus (2)

Aside from camping, several outdoor activities are available such as ATV rides, trap shooting (tiro), biking, and hiking. Moreover, you can enjoy a BBQ for lunch every Sunday.

For more information about the tent rental and activities fees, make sure to check their website here. (Specifically the “Camping” and “Activities” pages)

Pinea Campus (4)

Now if you’re already tempted to spend a weekend getaway there, the great people at Pinea Campus are offering a camping stay for two including the tent rental and breakfast for free. To get it, just leave a comment on this post and I’ll be randomly choosing a winner by Thursday night.

Update:

Youmna, you’ve got mail. 🙂 Mabrouk!

Lebanese guy creates a fake movie trailer to propose to his girl

The idea is cool and the video is well executed, but it would have been really nice if it was mentioned in the credits that the whole thing was inspired copied from this video.

Video via Gino Raidy, and thanks to Ghida Arnaout for pointing out the similarity with the other video.

Update:

A reference to the original video is now mentioned in the caption here.
