Sony Ps4

The PlayStation turned 20 on December 3 and Sony released a limited edition PS4 to celebrate. This gorgeous 90s-era PS4 was designed to look just like the original PS and I am giving it away to one lucky reader of the blog!

Yup you heard me right! Five of these limited editions PS4 consoles were shipped to Lebanon, I’m getting one and one of them could be yours thanks to Sony Lebanon. By the way I always think of the PlayStation when someone mentions Sony (and the Walkman I used to have) but they also offer all types of high end technologies from TVs to cameras, sound systems etc …

How to win the 20th anniversary PS4 edition?
The competition won’t be too complicated but you have to abide by the rules and fulfill all the conditions set or else you will be excluded from the final draw. First things first, anyone who wishes to enter the competition MUST Follow [Sony Lebanon’s Instagram] account. If you don’t have an Instagram account, you have to create one and follow the [account].

Moving on to the competition rules, there are 3 questions that you need to answer:
– How many units of this special PS4 were produced?
– How many branches does Sony have in Lebanon? Name one of them.
– What’s written in tiny marks on this limited edition PS4 controller’s touch pad?

(Hint: Two of the Answers can be found [here])


You need to answer all three questions by commenting on the blog post and get at least two of them correctly. Please make sure to mention your instagram username in the comment. The competition will end on Wednesday 25th of December at 10 am. All valid names will be compiled into one list and Sony Lebanon & I will draw and announce the lucky winner on Thursday 26th of December 2014.

This is the best giveaway I’ve ever done on the blog and I am very glad (and grateful to Sony Lebanon) that I was able to let BlogBaladi’s readers win one so good luck to you all!

Let’s Forget What Fattoush Did And Focus On Bernadette Ojeil For Now

I watched this video yesterday morning even before it went viral and was disgusted by what this judge and her husband have done. What they did was wrong on so many levels and you’d expect them to get arrested on the same day, but then I remembered that MP Fattoush almost did the same thing by assaulting a female employee at the Justice Palace and got away with it, and then his son attacked a journalist few days ago and also got away with it somehow.

I never lost faith in the justice system and I am confident most of the judges we have are competent and capable of assuming their responsibilities, but it’s time we see some actions and not just videos gone viral.


Amal Alamuddin is Barbara Walters’ Most Fascinating Person of the Year For The Wrong Reasons

Posted By :

There’s no doubt that Amal Alamuddin is a fascinating woman and deserves to be among the most fascinating people of the year, but it’s not of her very high profile marriage to George Clooney. Honestly speaking, it’s rather insulting and disrespectful to Amal to be named the “Most Fascinating Person” for marrying Clooney only.

Amal Alamuddin Clooney snagged a perennial bachelor in wedlock and became the most-envied woman in the world.
That’s one of the reasons why Barbara Walters has crowned her Most Fascinating Person Of 2014 in an ABC News special that aired Sunday night.
As Barbara pointed out, the 36-year-old brunette stunner has been thrust into the public eye thanks to her very high profile marriage to George Clooney, 53.

At the start of the show Walters proudly told viewers that ‘most of our fascinating people are women this year’, even though her top 10 went on to contain five men and five women. But rather than focus on Amal’s successful career as a human rights lawyer, the TV host said she had been given the top spot because she snapped up Clooney as her husband. ‘You could say hers was the wedding of the year, but let’s put it into perspective, it was really one of the greatest achievements in human history,” Walters said.

If you’ve been wondering what’s the story behind the pie that’s been circulating around Beirut, it’s a teaser for the above movie that was done by Tammana. Here’s the full story:

Five year old cancer survivor Ghassan wanted to become an actor and pie someone in the face one day. Tammana which is an NGO that grants the wishes of children suffering from life threatening illnesses made Ghassan’s dream come true in this action-packed movie where he plays detective. I loved the initiative and I loved the kid’s acting skills!
