My lovely readers, today, I turn 24. I’d like to make a wish [that I won’t reveal so as not to spoil it] and share a piece of cake with you. Thank you so much for all your support! In the hope that this year will bring more fun, interactions and projects!

Have a lovely day 🙂

Football & beauty

Hello my darlings! I know I haven’t been updating you much–-I’ve been preparing some super-cool surprises that you will know about very soon… Meanwhile, here are the 2 latest comics for ELLE orientale that I haven’t updated you with for a while. [Click to enlarge]

And of course, the song of the day 🙂 Have a lovely Monday!

World Cup Tribulations

Anyone else here fed up with the World Cup? Is it wrong that I don’t have the slighest interest in football? :'( I feel like an outcast. Can’t wait for the final game and the whole thing to be over. Anyway, here’s a song to keep you entertained, if like me, you don’t care neither about the vuvuzelas, nor about Messi! I’ve been hearing it on the radio and I liked it a lot: Satellite, by Lena Meyer Landrut. Have a nice day 🙂

Welcome to the jungle!

Looks like ‘green‘ is the trend these days. No, not the Marada green, the other environment protection one. After UNESCO threatened to drop the Qadisha Valley from World Heritage List, the Ministry of Environment in Lebanon felt compelled to bombard us with radio ads about the preservation of Environment. Oh and I got stopped in the street by Greenpeace activists. Let’s hope all of this will last or at least give effect!

Here’s the amazing amazing ‘Fever’ sang by Peggy Lee.

Have a great weekend everyone 🙂

Internet joke

So this law is supposed to get signed tomorrow, and we have to stop it! How can you help?

Facebook page

• More info about it on SMEX website [they are working very actively to stop this law]

• Follow #stopthislaw hashtag on Twitter

• Spread the word!

• Oh and check the Lebanese Ministry of Telecommunications website to balance the importance/need of a new law/ vs. Internet quality and presence improvement urgency, in the 4th slowest country in the world in upload speed.

You can see previous Internet naggings I’ve done here & here.

Other than that, I wish you a beautiful week. Here’s U2’s Stuck In a Moment. Enjoy 🙂

Dark interval

A tentative to smile after every trouble. I’m trying to solve some issues of life, which as you might have noticed is affecting the regularity of posting. I hope I’ll be posting more again soon enough! Have a hopeful day 🙂 Here’s Keith Jarrett’s My Wild Irish Rose

Flotillusion

Many people have been asking me about my opinion regarding the flotilla. Well, here it is. Deforming reality has limits and the world population isn’t 100% stupid to believe all the lies about the ‘weapons’ aboard the flotilla ships. I hope this will not be forgotten in 2 days like what usually happens in the online scene. For 2 days, everyone tweets and blogs heavily about the issue only to completely forget it few days later. In relation to that, here’s Bob Dylan’s amazing ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’.


In other news, if you’re around Tripoli, pass by City Complex this afternoon at 6PM. I’ll be signing my book there at the opening of Amalgame exhibition! See you there 🙂

Have a lovely day!
