We love the tourists that visit our beloved Lebanon in the summer… but when they bring their own cars with them they become less tourists and more traffic causes––not to mention they don’t help the economy that much either by bringing their own cars and spending less on transportation. It’s been very, very hard dealing with this. In all cases, have a lovely week and stay tuned for a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT tomorrow 😉

Here’s a nice song for you:

Very happy birthday!

That and ‘what is friendship?’ Of course, before anything, A BIG BIG THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SENT ME SWEET WISHES! My darlings, you made my day! Well, you and another fantastic surprise that was prepared by someone we can’t name. 😛 Have  a beautiful week, here’s a classic for you. Enjoy! 🙂

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 🙂

The job of the season!

In case you thought I was exaggerating with the swastika, check this out! Other than that, I should probably mention that I’m not a football fan [sorry guys!] but well, I always end up watching few games for the World Cup and I usually support Spain! 😀 Here’s a song for you, someone got me listening to The Beatles: Strawberry Fields Forever. Have a great week 🙂

Killing time

we all complain about not having "enough time"

I guess that I’ve been feeling in dire need of more and more time everyday to finish all the things I want to do. So I decided to make the most of all those hours wasted everyday because of glitches in our daily life! I won’t comment about that I’m slow in posting, because a blog is just like a person, sometimes just too busy, sometimes too moody to post every other day, so I hope you understand! 🙂

And here’s the positivity-spreading, day-brightening ‘Here Comes The Sun’ by the Beatles–can’t get enough of this song! Have a lovely day 🙂

I’d like to give a BIG thank you to Toni Yammine who offered to help with the sound, making the animation much richer and more fun!!!

Here’s a sneak peek of the making of, enjoy!

I will end today’s post with a song by an ‘underground alternative’ Lebanese band from the 80’s, the Quiminboos. This song, called Behsos, is impossibly cute, authentic and funny [mostly if you understand Arabic & Lebanese accents]. It’s from the CD compilation of Lebanese alternative music, Banadoura. Have a lovely day! 🙂

In other news, I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about another war happening in Lebanon soon… the thought of which brings out very ugly feelings in me. Here’s this song (&video) by Meen produced in 1 day only during the 2006 war. Hoping this is all only talk and Lebanon will keep on growing like it has been doing for the past 4 years. You can listen to the piano version of the song
