Helwi Beirut’s episode 55!

Hi all!

Our hosts introduced us to many guests from different fields, we learned about the latest news from Lebanon and the world in addition to our weekly segments.

Our main guest was member of the organizing committee of Al Bustan Festival 2012 Mrs. Laura Lahoud. Al Bustan Festival, established in Lebanon, was founded in 1994. The aim was to revive the cultural life of Lebanon after seventeen years of war. The 19th edition of Al Bustan Festival will take place between February 21 and March 25, 2012 and will have as a theme “Music from Latin America”.

His/her body language can tell you how much of stress he/she is under. During our weekly rendezvous with body language expert Habib el-Khoury, we learned how to analyze body language signs and transform then into a know-how of how much stress we are under.

Mexico’s Ambassador to Lebanon, His Excellency Mr. Jorge Alvarez Fuentes discussed with us the Latin program of Al Bustan Festival 2012.

Chef Ramzi has something delicious to prepare every Friday. Today he taught us how to prepare what’s called in Arabic “Kibbet Aadas”. Check out the ingredients below.
