Kim Kardashian launched in the past few days two new branches of Millions of Milkshakes in Kuwait and Bahrain. I was checking the video Mark posted and it was funny to see how people reacted to Kim arriving at Millions of Milkshakes. It’s like everyone went crazy and the same thing happened in Bahrain too.
I would love to see how Lebanese would react to Kim Kardashian’s visit if Millions of Milkshakes ever opens in Lebanon. I don’t expect it to be any different from what I saw in the videos below.

LebanonFiles reported today that restaurants at the Zaitunay Bay are not doing well and Solidere is seriously considering closing down the whole thing given the bad economic situation and the lack of tourists.
I don’t know how accurate this piece of news is, but the solution is definitely not by closing it down, but by lowering the incredibly high rent prices. I have already discussed this matter back in February as I was wondering if it’s really profitable to operate at the Zaitunay Bay.
Ex-PM Saad Hariri topped the list, followed by Al Jazeera English Middle East based Correspondent Sherine Tadros, Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati, Lebanese bloggers Imad Bazzi and Mustapha Hamoui, Lebanese Journalist Shada Omar, Journalist and Author of the best selling book ‘Wadi Abou Jamil’ on Jews of Lebanon Nada Abdelsamad, Lebanese news portal Naharnet, Al Jazeera’s Middle East Correspondent Rula Al Amin, and British Ambassador Tom Fletcher.
The list was the result of study done by Portland and constitutes the most the most comprehensive map yet produced of connectivity between influencers across the region. “Portland has analysed the influencers in each country and then ranked them in terms of how many other key tweeters in the Middle East follow them.”
