La Creperie Jounieh still open

Posted By :

I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me to ask my good friend Malek about la Creperie. After all, it’s his family that owns the place. Nevertheless, he messaged me yesterday and left a comment here that La Creperie is neither closing nor getting sold.

Here’s what he said:

This is not true. it is not being sold or closed. it will get renovated and it will not get sold by leaving its unique authentic cusinese

please update this news. I am the owner of La creperie

Malek el khazen

Rumors are wrong then. That’s good to hear.

La Creperie Jounieh set to close?

Posted By :

According to Gino’s, La Creperie restaurant is set to close its doors in few days time as it was purchased by wealthy investors who will be revamping the place before re-opening it in the spring of 2012. [Link]

For all those who don’t know La Creperie or haven’t been there yet, it’s one of the most beautiful and authentic restaurants in Lebanon and is located on top of a cliff offering a breathtaking view of Jounieh’s gulf.

I will try to go there one last time as it’s been a long while and have one last taste of their great Crepes.

How to resolve the electricity crisis in Lebanon?

Posted By :

We’ve been hearing for weeks now about the political bickering in the Cabinet and Parliament regarding the electricity bill proposed.

If this keeps going the same way and it probably will, power rationing, currently at between 8 to 12 hours a day, especially in Beirut’s suburbs and other areas, will get worse by the summer of 2013. [Link]

My question is if our politicians are so damn worried about us Lebanese getting electricity, why don’t they propose alternative solutions such as solar panels?

Those are easier to install and definitely cheaper than the 1.2 billion dollar bill and more importantly, are environmentally friendly and help lower our energy costs.

If the problem is that they can’t steal money out of a solar panel project, then I suggest Lebanese elect candidates who really care about their well-being the next time.

Ghaddafi loved Condi

“I admire and am very proud of the way she leans back and gives orders to the Arab leaders…Leezza, Leezza, Leezza. I love her very much. I admire her and I’m proud of her because she’s a black woman of African origin.” Gaddafi told al-Jazeera television in 2007.

He had a gorgeous Ukrainian nurse and had a thing for Condoleezza Rice? Talk about weird.

Serj Tankian is in Lebanon

Posted By :


Serj Tankian the lead vocalist of System of a Down is in Lebanon. My relatives spotted him and took pictures with him in Downtown Beirut a few days back but I sadly didn’t run into him. He’s going to be performing with his father at Rock Festival 2011 in Lebanon on September 2nd. The style is going to be similar to the video above which is nothing like System of a Down below. Don’t know if that’s good or bad but I’m leaning more towards bad. For more information on the Rock Festival click [Here]
