Earlier today, major (MAJOR) explosions blew away Beirut’s heart. The last numbers state 73 deaths and over 3700 injured people, but judging by the images I’ve seen, these numbers will soon rise much higher. You might know my dear Lebanese Princess, Saraa from It’s me Saraa. I thought about her right away, when I learnt…… Continue reading Dark day for Lebanon…

What a day… This morning started pretty much like any other these days. I woke up, sipped on my cup of hot chocolate while my head was shaking off the sleepiness.

After experiencing some technical problems, a plane had to make an emergency landing. At first, I was convinced this was a prank video. I’m so used to the…… Continue reading Is that… A plane???
I was invited (well, not personally, but still…) to join the Fandango’s Friday Flashback! Fandango scrolls back, every Friday, and gives a second chance to a post he had published on the same date the year before.

Dear US, Just a short note to tell you that I’m not too impressed with you, lately… It sadens me, because I dearly love many of your people. But you’re not being fairplay, and knowing how things are going all around the world, you should be ashamed of yourself. Yesterday, the news reported that…… Continue reading Bad neighbour… Bad!!
Good evening Lovelies, Well the holiday season is almost behind us now. In my family, the festival ends with Epiphany (January 6th) since it is Dad’s birthday. And we threw his anniversary party yesterday night, so the family & friends gatherings are over for a while. It was an intense three weeks or so. The…… Continue reading Cyra-news!
