And just add the reason why you gave me the age that you gave me!

Second Day

leave a comment »

Woke up early, got ready and headed to Jeita grotto, which was amazing! Camera’s weren’t allowed inside, so I didn’t take my camera with me. After that I went to Al Mayas with a couple of friends, which recommended the place. The place is well designed, but it was my worst experience in my life! The place is so craped! The staff can barely move around, the tables are so tiny and can’t fit all the food you ordered. I was told that the cherry Kabob is good, but it sucked! Imagen eating cherry jam with Kabob and the Kabob feels like its just normal grounded meat! Thats how it tasted! It was totally not worth it. When I left the place it was kinda dark, I decided to go to Al Rosha for a short walk. One of the best times on the beach I have ever had.

Later at the night, I went the City Mall, it was large, has a lot of shops which you could just shop till you drop dead. I finished the night off with a nice Shwarama at Hawa Chicken since it was on my way back home.

The First Day

leave a comment »

On my first night in Lebanon I headed out to the ABC Mall, it was amazing I loved the design of the mall, the way they use fresh air instead of A/C and that the Gahwa’s are up stairs are just well placed. So I decided to go to movies, I watched The Kingdom. It was a good movie a lot of effort has been put in to making this movie, but I didn’t like the cast that much! Jennifer Garner is a great actress, her role was amazing same goes to Jamie Foxx, but the rest is just whack!

Now lets talk about Lebanon, it’s beautiful and a great place, but  after having a couple of chats with my personal driver and the people I have met, I realized that Lebanon is living in depression! I have wittiness it today and the day before!It went like this, while I was in the car I noticed a guy lying on the road (his lets have been blown up apparently) and he’s asking for some money, it was just heartbreaking I just had to look away! While I was shopping I noticed that if the cashier or the people which are around the place see you pulling a buck there eyes  would be all over your wallet, they even keep an eye on you while your eating! I guess thats a sign that the people aren’t living the life they use to live. I’ve been told that Hizb Allah are camping in the Solidaire so I can’t go there because all the shops are closed and every single thing is fucked up! This isn’t the Lebanon that every one has told me about, I hope its gets better. I’ll be going to Al-Mayas restaurant tomorrow, I had Barbar’s chicken Shwarama today It was so good! totally loved it !

Arrived At Lebanon

leave a comment »

So I’m here, in Lebanon. Looks nice, had some trouble with the security because they wanted me to write the arrival card to enter Lebanon in Arabic and I wrote it in English. It was tough to write in Arabic especially that I didn’t write in Arabic since 2006. Any way, the roads are kinda complex and it looks difficult to drive around here. By the way I’ll be posting about the trip the food I had on the plane, something which is sort of funny happened so you’ll see it later when i get a decent internet connection!

Kuwait Airport Lounge (Al Dasman)

leave a comment »

    So I hanged out in the lounge before getting on my fight. When I entered this Philpino dude was walking the other way and all of the sudden he turned and came up to me with a attitude and asked me for the ticket, it went smoothly showed him the ticket and he apologized. I choose on of these like booths with a large, first impression I go was the place looks cool, the leather couches and the coffee dude with those amazing dates. Anyway, I went to the toilet its looked good at first but I was surprised to find that the toilets are so tiny that you can barely fit in them, and then i noticed the shower room! Just as i opened the door for the shower room the smell was disgusting, so disgusting that I thought I was in a freaking public toilet! After that horrible moment I went to the smoking lounge which of the Dasman lounge, there was the Costa coffee dude, I asked him for bottle of water and Lemon juice with mint. Usually the lemon and mint juice is a mixture with some suger and that kinda stuff, BUT what I got was tab water, the lemon juice was actually just a squeezed lemon with 2 old mint leaves on top, so it tasted so bad. After that I just left the place with disgust, the place is just horrible. So your wondering if its worth it to chill in the lounge, was it worth it? I’d prefer to chill in Starbucks on the comfy sofa’s with a over sized coffee mug! Its much cheaper! Sadly The lounge which is runned by Kuwait Airways needs some serious people to work in there and nevertheless a better cleaning staff.
