I have an extra reason to love Roadster Diner now as my Marbled Mud Pie Instagram picture won me two ASOT VIP tickets.

According to Al Rai, the Lebanese government refused a 1 billion dollar offer from the World Bank in exchange of privatizing the EDL (Electricite du Liban). Now I am not sure how reliable this source is but that’s not the first offer our government has refused as far as I know. Privatizing the EDL is a good option in my opinion.

According to Spanish newspaper El Confidencial, ex-Barcelona manager Josep Guardiola used to go as far as spy on his players to make sure that they are staying fit and not drinking or smoking or partying too much. Now this may seem a bit extreme but it shows how dedicated Guardiola was to keep his team in great shape and achieve victories (And it clearly paid off).
Meanwhile in Lebanon:

I guess this explains why none of the players were able to catch the referee in the video below.
We have now over 300,000 Syrian refugees in Lebanon and still no plans to set up special areas, receive the families and children and give them adequate aid. I know for a fact that a lot of Lebanese are donating or are more than willing to donate so let us find a way to control this flux of refugees and provide some minimal help because things are getting out of hand. Pictures of the Deir Zanoun camp are terrible.
This video was prepared by Doctors Without Borders, which is providing medical care to the Syrian refugees in Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq and doing a great job. You can read more about them [Here] and donate as well.

Lebanon was no where to be seen in Lonely Planet’s top 20 destinations or countries to visit for this year but it ranked 8th in the website’s top 10 destinations to visit for food of 2013.
Lebanese food is among the very few things we can still brag about and impress tourists with.
If food is your main reason to travel, then head to Italy, Thailand, India, Japan, and the rest of our foodie favourites below. You may need to break up this list with a few from the Adventures list (see below) to keep your waistline under control. Chiefly famous for its steak, Argentina was the only country to make the top 10 outside of Asia or Europe.

I am guessing he didn’t expect electricity to come anytime soon. Thank you Bassil for a change.
The body of a young man was discovered Sunday hanging from an electricity pole in the southern city of Tyre.
The body of the man, in his twenties, was discovered by farmers early in the morning while heading to the fields in the area between the two Tyre villages of Batoulieh and Dair Qanoun – Ras al-Ain.
Security sources said that the man may have climbed up the pole to steal copper wires from the electricity cables, when he was struck by electricity and died. Baggage on the floor suggested it may be used for collection. [DailyStar]
