Khanjar – The Best Honey in Lebanon!

FB_IMG_1472198621308

Yes you read that right, Khanjar 3asal akhou sharmouta!

I just saw the photo on reddit and several Facebook pages today. At first I thought it’s fake but someone on reddit claims it’s actually real and available at supermarkets in Baalbeck.

The label says it’s a product of South Lebanon and the description is funny as hell! Here’s what it says: “Men andaf mara3i el zaher fi janoub loubnan, la madroub w la maghshoush w la m7alla. 3asal msaffa bil tabi3a bidoun ala3ib w afleim w khouza3baleit w gala gala. Mantouj safi … w bet7adda akbar ras an yountej 3asal andaf min heik. Fa istamte3 bi 3assal khanjar w ghammid 3ayneik. Al wazen al safi: Abou noss kilo”

I hope someone can confirm whether Khanjar is really availale in Baalbeck or not. I would seriously love to get a jar!

Update:

Mahmoud Ghazayel did an awesome job tracing the source of the photo and practically found the producers of this honey. It turned out it is actually real and according to Rayan’s comment below, we should see Khanjar going on sale anytime soon when the legal process is all done!

Lebanese drivers logic: What i decided to do about it!

A woman with a child on her bicycle navigates through Beijing traffic.

I’ll start off with a simple logical description of the issue on hand: On a single-lane road, two cars can pass faster when they are moving one after another. But when next to each other, one car has to slow down in order to let the other pass. In other words, lamma ykoun 3adad l siyarat yalle meshyin 7ad ba3d aktar mn 3adad l lanes, hol l siyarat bya3mlo 3aj2a la2an ma bise3o yo2ta3o 7ad ba3d w bisiro majbourin ykhaffefo ta ymar2o ba3d.
This effect, scaled up, creates irrelevant, unneeded, ugly traffic.

Supposing that what I am talking about can be grasped by small minded Lebanese drivers (which I doubt) who think they are always in a state of rush that allows them to just create lanes of their own, driving the wrong way or even where there is no ‘way’, I have come to a decision that I would like to share.

Paint balls!

Since I am daily witnessing the phenomena of  “I am in a rush, I drive my car where I please” and “matra7 ma bshouf zefet bemshe. w aslan ma droure ykoun fi zefet” I have decided to purchase a stock of paint balls and a paint ball gun. Why? you may ask. I shall salute each driver driving the wrong way with a colorful paint ball to cheer up his day w ta fesh khel2e as well. So in case you come across some news report in the near future speaking of a trend of colorful cars on the Lebanese roads, you can safely assume that I had some part in setting that trend.

And oh, since its Christmas time, I will start with a stock of green and red paint balls 🙂

Victoria Beckham opening in Tarik Al-Jadida!

I came across this store while driving through Tarik Al-Jadida today. Apparently Victoria Beckham found it too expensive to rent a place in Downtown.

And check the small sign on top of the door

They have another branch for Kids wear! (Named after Victoria’s son maybe)
