“So, what do women want?” This age-old question has been echoing, in every part of the world, since the dawn of humanity and has yet to be answered. Many books have been written on the subject; movies have been made; and comics and cartoons have been illustrating (mostly wrongly) what women want. But all kidding… Continue reading What Women Want: A Woman’s Version
Okay, so I saw a (sort of) funny, but true, picture on the internet that says: "It's funny how you can tell someone likes someone else, but you can't tell if someone likes you." It's got a lot of truth in it; but why is that so? Here's the deal: boy meets girl, girl meets… Continue reading Taking the road less traveled?
What is a trend? The definition of trend (according to dictionary.com) is: "The general course or prevailing tendency". Here's a story for you that I have been hearing a lot lately, from several friends. Real-life events of ordinary people, just like me and you. The names and genders - as well as sexual orientations -… Continue reading Keep up with the trend, dude!
After having had a rather rough night due to flu symptoms: dry mouth and throat, upset stomach, and headache, I was awoken today at six-thirty in the morning by our dearly senile cat, meowing relentlessly for his first breakfast (he eats every 2 hours, vomits all over the place, and then meowingly demands more food).… Continue reading “My only good friend” – The perks of being a recent immigrant
Two months ago, I packed my bags, and twenty eight years of my life, and hopped on an Emirates Airlines flight to Los Angeles, California.

I thought I had reached a point where I had seen the worst there is in the Lebanese labor market; a point where the level of degradation of the human being can never be any lower. I was wrong! In the last part of Article 61 of the Lebanese Labor Law, it is clearly stated… Continue reading Could It Stoop Any Lower?
Recently, I had been job hunting, in a country where the right clothes, shoes, accessories and physical features are considered the main criteria on which one is considered for a job; a country where salaries are in no way organized by the government (Minister of Labor) to suffice for the basic human needs; a country… Continue reading Please explain to me…
Over a cup of coffee with a few friends tonight, and as all Lebanese usually do, we commenced a 'nag-ful' conversation about the various 'deviant' aspects of the society; issues such as our outrageous nightclubs, all the way through to politics (being Lebanese, politics is always an issue to be discussed over coffee, a drink, lunch/dinner… Continue reading Delivery anyone?
I guess the war shall never end! I have been job hunting for the past four months, and have not yet found anything. I have sent out countless copies of my resume, and have been to more than a dozen interviews. The responses I got varied and were really funny. Here is an example of a… Continue reading Thank you… goodbye!
I went out for a drink with a friend of mine, during the high-tourist season that hit Lebanon this year, and we got into discussing tourism and stuff of the sort. This friend used to work in a well known and reputable bank in Lebanon, in the head office, and had access to a lot of "secrets".… Continue reading What’s wrong with this picture?
