Go big or go home.





1. Hospitality: Oh you have 4 people coming over for a 3azeemeh? Prepare enough food for 300 people otherwise it’s 3ayb.


2. Wasta and cutting corners: Your official document needs 5 working days to be ready? Make 100 phone calls to ensure it’s ready in an hour.


3. Giving directions: Street names are for suckers, head to the third petrol station to the right and ask for Abu Imad.


4. Rooftop bars: World class bars atop a pile of trash, because we love to party.


5. Boozing it up: See #4.


6. Faking it until we make it: Look polished, dress beautifully, fine-dine all while you’re hustling.


7. Weddings: I don’t need to elaborate but basically imagine the royal wedding and dial it UP a few notches.


8. Wedding cakes: Forget your classic 3-tier wedding cake that you actually cut and eat. We have 3-meter tall fake cakes, diamond studded and covered in genuine zebra skin or something.


9. Gymming in style: Who said a treadmill and high heels don’t mix?


10. Food: One platter? More like 15 mezza dishes then 3 main dishes.


11. Fake lashes and hair gel: All day, every day.


12. Family: Why have one child when you can have ten?


13. Hustling: Despite all our obstacles, many Lebanese defy the odds on a regular basis.
