My never ending diet…

A couple of months ago, I decided to lose 5 kilos! So I was referred by a friend to a dietician that we shall call Kristo, in Achrafieh next to Hotel Dieu de France Hospital.

Did you know that dieticians are not doctors!!! I personally didn’t know that. As I walked in I noticed that they are displaying diet food, chocolates bars, powder juice etc., along with price tags on each item!!! I honestly didn’t dare to ask if they are selling this stuff at the “clinic”.

The appointment was at 4: 30, and of course, they let me in at 5:15, noting that I called before going, and got firm assurances that there would be no delay since I was overloaded with work.

Hyperactive Bee

A couple of weeks ago we headed to a nice beach resort located in the south of Lebanon, we shall call it Hyperactive Bee for the purpose of this blog. It was not our first time to Hyperactive Bee, as the beach was one of our favorite destinations, known for its good service, relaxed ambiance and excellent location.

Surprisingly the fees were heavily increased this summer, knowing that the Lebanese beach front is public property, anyway this was expected as everything is getting more and more expensive nowadays!

Chez E.G.O Restaurant

Hey all … hope you are happy and in good health!

Where do I begin to tell this crazy story…. Mmmm.. let me see I’ll take you back 4 months ago ( I promise to make it quick) to my first encounter with this restaurant that I shall call CHEZ E.G.O (trust me guys I am being nice by just naming it Chez E.G.O!)

Some acquaintances suggested that we go have dinner in a new restaurant in town… “The” place to be… so they booked a week ahead and we were informed that we were lucky to find a table that quick! Now I wish we didn’t find a table!

I went on my day off, presumably to a top- notch travel agency (TA) in the country (Lebanon), trying to organize my summer trip to Greece… This TA featured all over Lebanon unipoles stating Turkey & Greece Best Packages! 

Great! The place to go! I went into the TA head office where the receptionist was very friendly. She asked me to wait for 15 minutes and proposed to offer me a cup of coffee… I gladly accepted and started looking around the TA premises, as a true marketer ;-). The branding was really nice; even the sugar pack is branded! The colors are very attractive, the company corporate Values & Principles of the TA are clearly posted: Integrity, Efficiency, Customer service etc…. Bravo! For the marketing Department well done! It gives the customer a feeling of genuine credibility…

Hello Guys…

This is my first experience in writing a blog… can’t tell you how happy and excited I am. When I first heard of the blogging era, I thought it is something beyond me. I am very outdated & will never be able to get acquainted with it. All I have is an email address and I am not even active on facebook! and to be honest, I was very scared to ask someone about this “thing”… yet  I knew that the online stuff are the next BIG THING! and in a couple of years everything else will be called the old way!  

Anyhow, thanks to my friend/colleague Assaad (very active in the online community I urge you to visit his blog) I decided to write my first blog today.

Let’s cut to the chase!
