The cabinet was finally announced today after 10 months of trial. I wanted to know more about the ministers and their education so I put together this list. Quite a saddening list in fact.

Wars stories or: how you can’t shoot what you hate is a post by Fadi BouKaram
I’ve been shooting Street Photography for two and a half years now. Until a few months ago it was a relatively easy path. It was easy simply because it was fun. The learning curve was steep; it still is. There was a lot to learn; there’s more even still. But none of [...]

A life spent depressed is a wasted life. This holds more true to me who went through depression. How many special occasions have I missed? I’ve lost good friends because of my refusal to socialize. They understand what I’m going through, yes, but they can only be there for me as long as I [...]

It is almost a “known fact” that our public sector is inefficient (not to say corrupt) to a point that we have always needed a middleman to carry out our administrative tasks. I have always been doing my own stuff myself and have been proving this theory wrong each time.

Farah Alhashim, filmmaker, shares her thoughts:
I think I snapped your attention right out of your eyeballs. And made it mine. Just because I wrote three simple letters… S. E. X.
I have no idea what the hell is going on in Beirut and some Arab countries. This continuous obsession into trying to imitate the west and become like the [...]
This is a follow up on a previous post: “Let’s talk about rape“.
A girl shares her story:
“We’ll see what we can do.” This is what the police said when I voiced out the names of the men who raped and beat me. But it was not enough. I had to repeat the story including every single detail a myriad of times in the police stati [...]
In my opinion, the reaction of the restaurant manager following that post was outrageous!
My Benihana Experience is a post by Mark.
A few days back I posted about Benihana opening up at the Avenues and yesterday night I decided to pass by with Nat and try it out. The service wasn’t too bad for a restaurant that’s just been open for a few day [...]
Poème de Marwan
A celle qui pénétra dans ma vie
Une balle de revolver au coup de minuit.
A celle qui dans mon cœur élu foyer
Cette antre si vaste au lit si douillet.
A celle qui éplucha mes plus solides carapaces
Comme un fruit exotique, délicieux et vivace.
A celle pour qui mon vaillant et invaincu bouclier
Ne fait pas plus d’effet qu’une m [...]
