Most of you have probably heard about Dinner in the Sky if not click [Here]. The same guy who has the Ferrari 599 GTO below also had dinner in the sky and uploaded those videos to his YouTube account. The one above is the best of the bunch. Looks pretty cool. [YouTube]
Now if you want to be nosy like me you can check out all the guys videos by following this [Link]. He has a ton of cool videos mostly of some of the coolest rides in Lebanon. I would have love to have been on this outing.. [Link]
I went to get a chocolate from a nearby supermarket when i spotted Bonjus haram (Pyramid-shaped). It’s been so long since i had one of those, so i got myself half a dozen (Orange ones) with two UNICA bars. They still taste as good as ever.
I had my brother’s graduation on Saturday in the American University of Beirut (AUB). It was supposed to start at 7:30pm with the distribution of diplomas scheduled at 8:30pm.
I got there with my folks at 7:25, got seated at 8:45 and the ceremony started at 10:20pm !!
Afterwards, people literally invaded the buffet and almost ate the plates along with what’s inside of them. I would assume people willing to spend 25,000$ per year on medical school would be a bit more civilized but i guess not. Kel chi bi balesh kattir menno.
Anyway, this graduation reminded me of the registration days at AUB, and the trouble we would go to just to register for a class. One would think that with all this money, the university would organize things better bass ya ma7la daweyir el dawoule, and it’s not just AUB. AUB is probably the least worst of all others.
Looks like the “psychic” octopus was right.
The Germans destroyed the English today and advanced to the quarter finals. England were denied a second goal that was 100% correct but that doesn’t change anything. It is quite ironic though cause England were granted a similar goal in 1966 against the Germans even though it wasn’t a goal.
We had a surprise birthday last sunday at Rikky’z in Faqra at lunch time and i must say it was a lot of fun and very different from what i was expecting. I had never been to that place before but i knew it was a nice place overlooking Faraya that had open BBQ and drinks and a nice atmosphere. What i did not see coming is that i was practically going to a party but in day time.
The place is right before the Faqra club and is very easy to get to. You have to give you car away (Valet Parking of course) and pay a 30$ entrance fee that includes open food and drinks and a free sombrero. You get in a wooden house and head toward a large terrace where there are lots of tiny tables, just like any night club, a bar and very loud music. The sun is a killer so you will need your sombrero.
The party picks up bit by bit and around 2 pm, food is served in a buffet. You have salads inside and a large grill outside. Food wasn’t that great to be honest but just like night clubs, you don’t expect it to be good but don’t really care as the whole atmosphere is nice.
I was going through old pictures the other day when i saw this picture of a vodka bottle a friend of mine got as a present from Europe. It is a Vodka Everest Cannabis bottle that we never opened or maybe dared to open yet.
I couldn’t find any reference to it online, but i am curious now and wanna know how it tastes. I will let you know once we have a drink, that is if we remember anything.
Update: So i call the friend and it turns out we already drank that bottle last summer and he also tried googling it and with no success. Now the weird part is that i can’t remember a thing about that night. I am never trying this stuff again, that’s for sure lol!
