My visit to Ferrari Lebanon

Posted By :

So i finally went to the Ferrari showroom and what a great delight that visit was!

I was greeted by Marie-Claire who had invited me to come over and started touring the showroom. There were pre-owned cars on display, the Ferrari F430, 599 GTB and the 612 Scaglietti. I honestly haven’t seen a Scaglietti before and i got to see two on the same day, one in the showroom and another for a customer who was kind enough to show us his car.

I then watched an event organized by Ferrari Lebanon in Riyak Air base back in July 2010 where all Lebanese Ferrari car owners were invited to try out their cars and learn how to drift with people from Ferrari Maranello. The event was very exclusive and really cool to watch, wish i had been there to take pictures.

There’s a small corner also in the showroom if you like to buy Ferrari gadgets. I asked Marie-Claire if they had some Michael Schumacher items still, she ironically replied: “Who is Schumacher?”, hinting that he’s no longer part of the Ferrari familia. Also, i was told Ferrari fans and car owners are invited occasionally to come down and watch the Formula1 GPs in the small lounge.

Last but not least, i asked about how could one test-drive a Ferrari and it seems rather impossible unless you are a potential client, which i must say makes sense, but i was still promised a ride whenever there’s a demo car available. Will be looking forward to that!

Thank you Marie-Claire and keep up the great work!

PS: i just played Loto, so let’s hope for the best

How to use Trapster

Posted By :

Since the government decided to plant speed traps everywhere, some people have started downloading and using the Trapster application. My friend called me today telling me he was able to spot 3 of them with the Trapster.

It is very easy to use, you just download it, and post about a radar your spotted on the map, then all other users will be notified of the radar’s location.

According to nowlebanon, 3630 traffic violations were detected only on Monday. Here is a picture of the new anti-speeding radar.

Major Fire at Ain el-Rummaneh Warehouse

Posted By :

A major blaze broke out Tuesday evening at a six-storey building in the Beirut suburb of Ain el-Rummaneh, the state-run National News Agency reported.
Preliminary reports mentioned that the blaze started at an oil change and car engine shop on the ground floor of the Najjar building before moving to a bags factory, then spreading to the rest of the apartments that were completely evacuated.

Smoke clouds covered Ain el-Rummaneh and the neighboring areas.

Civil Defense crews were still working to put out the fire. [Naharnet]

As if we needed more ways to pollute!

Lebanese vs. Israeli Hummus

Posted By :

This is from Hung TV Show (Season 2 Episode 7). The main character is basically a man whore and is banging a Lebanese chick and an Israeli one and each is cooking him her own hummus. It is good publicity for Lebanon and another “proof” that Hummus is indeed Lebanese.
