The legendary Parisian market Fauchon is set to open in Gemmayze soon.
An institution of French gourmet excellence for over 125 years, Fauchon provides delicacies from all over France and the world for that matter, and is divided into different sections with a section for items such as preserves and exotic canned goods, another for breads, pastries and chocolates and another for items such as cheese, pate and terrines.

Fauchon already has branches in Kuwait, Qatar and the UAE. [Link]
Out of all famous leaders and personalities in the world and in Lebanon, Najwa Karam picked Adolph Hitler as one of the many men that, if combined, would make her ideal man. Seriously? Hitler?!?
On last weekâ€™s Mtv Lebanonâ€™s Talk Of The Town show, the 46 year old songstress was asked by host Mona Abou Hamze to list different men, that if combined, would make her ideal man. Two of her choices were utterly appalling not to mention extremely disappointing from someone with her influence.
First she chose Hitler, yes you read correctly, Adolf Hitler, she said, for his â€œcharismaâ€ and his ability to carry out a speech. The sad part is no one really raised an eyebrow or even attempted to challenge that irresponsible and ignorant reply. How is it that in this day and age, a public figure, specifically a somewhat liberal woman, would advocate or publicly applaud a characteristic of HITLER? [Ivysays]
Nevertheless, we still need a sustainable solution to prevent any future internet outage from happening. We need to be pro-active and have contingency plans instead of reacting to a disaster when it occurs.
[YouTube] The Bourne Legacy: I am a big fan of The Bourne film series and this promises to be as good as the ones before, even though there won’t be any Jason Bourne in it.
[YouTube] “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.
Those are the movies I am mostly looking forward to watching. There’s also the new James Bond movie “Skyfall” being released in November of this year. If you want a list with all the upcoming Summer 2012 movies, click [Here].
I haven’t been to the Grand Cinemas at ABC Dbayeh yet, so I decided to go yesterday to watch the Dictator. I was worried I wouldn’t make it on time so I checked their website to see if we can call and reserve two places just like Cinemacity at City Mall and I was in for a nice surprise. Apparently you can book your seats, buy your tickets on the website and you don’t even need a receipt. All you need to remember is the booking number displayed on the screen once you’re done and have the credit card you used to do the payment with you. The process is really easy but costs an extra 1000LL per ticket (Booking fee).
After purchasing your tickets online, all you need to do is pick up your tickets from the box office or kiosk. I am not sure but I recall Grand Cinemas ABC Achrafieh having a similar option few years back but it wasn’t available on the website except for ABC Dbayeh.
Some 200 people will squeeze some 2,200 kilos of lemon which will be added to 1,000 kilos of sugar, 3,000 liters of water, and 1,000 kilos of ice cubes. Together, the participants will make 5,200 liters of lemonade, which will fill a glass 285 cm high and 140 cm at its base with 185 cm opening.
â€œThe lemonade will be clean and fit to drink, and it will be distributed for free on beaches and in restaurants and other public places after announcing the new Guinness World Record at the end of Batrouni Lemonade Day,â€ Khoury said, adding that lemonade will also be distributed along the cityâ€™s main roads.

Even though it’s another pointless Guinness World Record, it’s very hot these days and I am sure everyone will need a fresh Lemonade. We will probably set another Guinness World Record in emptying the largest glass of lemonade.
Lebanese Minister of Telecommunications Nicolas Sehnaoui just tweeted from Cyprus that changes were done to restore the connection back to normal in Lebanon. This doesn’t mean that the IMEWE cable malfunction was fixed but that we were able to route our connection through a different line until the problem is solved.
