Where there is Lebanese, there is Najjar

BEIRUT: George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are planning to wed in a London venue this September, sources close to the couple told The Daily Star.

The Lebanese-British Alamuddin has become a source of pride and fascination in her home country after news broke of her engagement to notorious bachelor Clooney. The Lebanese media has been whipped into a frenzy, with news crews and reporters descending on Alamuddin's ancestoral Chouf village of Baakline.

Alamuddin has also become a source of many self-depricating jokes among Lebanese at home and abroad. Blogger Amer Zahr wrote an open letter to Clooney about marrying an Arab woman that went viral on social media, warning the movie star to "strap in for the ride."

"Oh, and we have to talk about the wedding. You may have hoped for a small, tactful affair. I wouldn't be too optimistic," Zahr advised.

The satirical website the Pan-Arabia Enquirer ran an article about Clooney ditching his Nespresso sponsorship for Najjar, a popular Lebanese brand of Arabic coffee.

Alamuddin is a high-profile lawyer whose clients have including Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, former Libyan intelligence chief Abdallah Al Senussi, former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and the king of Bahrain. She also worked for the prosecution of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, about which she co-edited a book.

Alamuddin's father, Ramzi Alamuddin, is a retired business professor at the American University of Beirut. Her mother, Bariaa Miknass, is a veteran journalst at Al Hayat and a former contributor to The Daily Star.

Check the postscript at the end 'NOTE'.

 

I bet they sell music CDs and contraceptive pills on the same condition.

 

This sounds funny but this is a sign of the same madness Pakistanis are suffering from.

Closing thought for the day: A person can keep on being lazy and whine all they want about how they're not where they want to be in life because others have held them back. Sometimes their whole life will be wasted just by doing that. But they can also do something about it. They can change themselves and ignore the naysayers. They can move forward and become something in this world. They have so much potential to do so many wonderful things if they work hard enough.

Goodnight everyone. :)

it is hard to see the positive side of it. It isn't a common cold. I wish it was.
