The cross was inaugurated 2 weeks ago and i am heading towards Baskinta today to see it. I will update you with pictures as soon as i am back.
“Look at me, I have a 5 followed by six 8s on my license plate, I’m so coooool. While I’m at it, let me cover up the “khoussoussi” sign at the bottom left corner with a Justice department plate, and if anyone stops my car which has full on black tints, I’ll tell them that my daddy works for the Justice department”
As you all remember, there was a Crest Smile competition going on two months ago whereas girls would submit their photos on Crest website and people would vote for them so that they get a chance to feature in Femme magazine. Back then we supported for fun a candidate trying to send out a message that Maya illustrated so well.
Rima Zeidan won the competition and apparently stopped smiling after she read my post that this competition looks fixed.
“Yes it is surprising, and yeah maybe a coincidence.
But I just want you to take a good look at the picture and be the judge youself, use your objectivity.
Donâ€™t blame everything on Wastaâ€¦ you may not beleive it, coming from the winner herself, BUT if there is one person in Lebanon who is against wasta, then it is me. I can assure you that the competition was a very objective one and we had to go through several phases before the decision was made and the winner announcedâ€¦
Soâ€¦yeahâ€¦The winner may not be who you wanted it to be, but donâ€™t just always hide behind wasta because the degree of professionalism if the CREST and FEMME team was exceptional! :)
My Dearest Mira,
1- Alf Mabrouk for you and you sure have great white teeth and deserve to win, but that’s not the point we were trying to send out. We were voting for a cartoon character with 3 teeth and the girl with the red hat that was not even smiling in case you did not notice.
2- Rules of the competition were based on voting yet as i said before, i never saw your picture among the 20 most popular images. Why are they deceiving people into voting if they count for nothing?
3- Unfortunately, you cannot assure me of any competition’s subjectivity, at least not in Lebanon. I do want to believe you but there is no way you are aware of everything that’s been going on behind the curtains.
4- I hope you will get a good job based on your diplomas (Major in Finance, Minor in Communication at AUB) and merit and not because you won the Crest Smile. That would be demeaning to you as a person.
Keep smiling and good luck and hope to see you around.
As i mentioned earlier this morning, i subscribed to the Internet mobile service on my phone and i started facing problems related to the loss of network over the day.
I contacted Alfa to see what’s happening and they were very unhelpful as usual and i kept losing the network even though i thought it was related to MSN only. Therefore i called Alfa back to cancel my subscription but i addressed my concern to the operator before moving on with my cancellation.
She told me and i quote: ” When you subscribe to the internet on Iphones, they take out signals from the services and therefore you lose your signals every time you connect to the Internet”.
There is no way in hell i fall for that, but i did not hesitate to cancel my subscription even if that meant losing 10$.
Whenever i call Alfa support, i keep hoping that this time they will be able to actually help me but in vain. I am not quite sure why i bother try calling them again.
I called this morning to activate the GPRS on my phone. It took few hours to work and i started browsing the net and adding few applications. I downloaded Live Messenger application among others like two hours ago. Since then, i got no phone calls nor messages and received an email from a friend asking me why my phone is closed.
I call Alfa to ask them if there’s any problem with my line, they answer me that everything is ok and i should try it on another phone.
I explain that i had this issue before with the WhatsApp application. They answer me that i have to visit a cellular store to resolve the issue.
I guess we all know now why the support line 111 is for free, simply because no one would ever pay money to listen to meaningless B.S.
PS: I removed the MSN application and restart my Iphone. It worked fine.

This is one last update on the Naccache bridge that was closed and Zalzali’s 15% statistics on the delay caused by his stupid fashion show.
Dear Monsieur Jeff,
I left Achrafieh yesterday at 5:15 pm, reached the Naccache bridge at 5:38 pm and got home by 5:55 pm.
Two days ago, it took me 1 hour and 15 minutes to get past Marina Dbayyeh. Let me help Jeff here figure out how much more time (%) this means as he appears to be mathematically challenged.
What took me 23 minutes on a regular day took me 85 minutes during your show, meaning an additional 62 minutes or 370% more time than the usual.
Next time this happens, we have to figure out a way to sue him and Nataly’s agency or maybe throw eggs at them during the show.
