I was walking back to my car a couple of weeks ago in Achrafieh when I spotted a small note placed on a building that warned people passing by of falling rocks. I thought it was a joke at first but then saw the same note in Arabic on the other side of the building. I looked up and noticed that some parts of the roof were indeed falling off, yet there were no security fences around the place.
I don’t know how the municipality allows such a thing but something needs to be done before someone gets hurt.
The storm is over but there are still some pretty cool pictures to share.
Charbel is a super talented Lebanese photographer and takes some pretty amazing pictures. Check out his Facebook page [Here].
If you are going to the marathon on Sunday, I recommend you download the Beirut Marathon mobile app as there’s everything you need in it. You can check out the race map, the roads closed, bib tracking and your friends’ location. There are also games to play and a selfie frame.
The app is available for [Android] and [iOS].
Alfa’s CEO Marwan Hayek
I posted earlier about Apple rolling out the iPhone 6 to new countries including Lebanon and Alfa’s CEO confirmed in a tweet that we should get the iPhone 6 and 6+ by November 17. I don’t know much about the prices yet but I will update the post as soon as I have details.
According to 9to5mac, Apple’s next iPhone 6 rollout will include Lebanon among others and will take place on November 14th. Back in March, we heard that the iPhone will be officially released in Lebanon but these things take time so let’s hope it works out this time.
I will try to get further updates and will keep you posted.
If you’ve been eagerly waiting for the iPhone 6 to go on sale in your country, you may be in luck. While Apple has not yet made an official announcement of the next phase in its rollout of the iPhone 6/Plus, we’ve so far spotted that the new phones are scheduled to go on sale in at least ten (and counting) new countries on November 14th. Local carriers have so far announced the November 14th availability of the new iPhones in: Brazil, Philippines, Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, Uruguay, Guatemala, Lebanon, Kenya and Nigeria, with Malaysia also looking set to see the phones around the same time …
Thumbs up for this great picture Rodrigue!
Chamsine is really good by the way. I remember we used to stop quite often at his branch on the Khaldeh highway on our way to the South.

The car has a Dubai plate but the crash happened in Tyre. What a waste!
I was googling his name and the second article I found was about him slapping some customer but it seems he had a good reason to do so.
When contacted, Harry Zakour denied slapping Owusu, claiming, “He came and started misbehaving and insulted me…and he’s been doing it not only today; he’s been doing it for a long time. Even the police are looking for him; he has sent me some nasty messages.”
Asked what he did for his accuser to insult him as he claimed, the former Hearts of Oak Chairman could not be specific except to say, “He insulted me, bastard, he insulted the President, he insulted the NDC, he said he would deport me and I said ‘why are you doing that in my own restaurant?’”
Harry added, “This guy is not normal oo; he has caused a lot of problems to people. This man has been jailed before; he is a jail bird, cocaine dealer.”
