The placemat that Roadster is using for Mother’s day is quite funny and impressive!
You don’t need to know how she gets things done. Just be thankful.
Happy Mother’s Day.
After Exotica got heavily criticized for their Mother’s Day campaign both on the Lebanese blogs and on twitter (although I did find it catchy).

They responded yesterday by replacing the old billboards by the ones below, delivering a new message in the same context.

They either INTENDED to create a controversy with their first billboards to get people to talk about them OR they simply got convinced through the feedback they got that what they did is not right and so they created the new billboards. In the first case they proved to be smart, while in the latter they proved to be listening to what the public is saying online! Either way, they’re doing a GOOD job!
Arghhh my blog is not yet popular and I have already came across a website with a similar name.
Today I received a spam email that landed right into my junk folder (thanks to Gmail), promoting a new Lebanese gifts website called 961gifts.com i.e. Lebanon gifts. Ok they’re not really copying me actually but they did copy the name, no?
I did a whois query to see when was it registered, and I got the following result:

Ok mine was registered on December 2007! 😉
By the way, if you’re looking for an online gifts store to get your mother a gift on Mother’s day, I recommend Zoohoor.com. I work in a sister company to them and the guys are pretty nice and friendly there.
Oh and talking about popularity, I see people are constantly checking on my blog through the RSS feed. Whoever you are I’m glad you’re interested in my content! I’ll try to post more often.
