Tweeps on my timeline are of three different types:
1- the ones who tweet links and only links. They suddenly pop out of nowhere and fill the timeline with tens of tweets in a time range of few minutes. In a way or another: they are spamming me.
2- the ones who use twitter as a chat tool (or a flirt tool :P). They tweet the lamest tweets ever.
3- the ones who tweet everything.
And let’s say my favorite is the third type. Why? Because I’m 100% sure they’re real people behind those Twitter handles. In their tweets, they share informative articles, videos, blogs, pictures, etc. But they also share some information about themselves: their current mood, what’s their favorite food or drink, #nowplaying and you get to know their taste in music, and they engage in a tiny chat with other tweeps over different subjects.
And the above pics were taken with my Nokia N8 😀
N.B: am not a photographer; I was at Marina Dbayeh, enjoying the scene and took some photos; just sharing the scene!
Searching for Liberia on google’s image search, one picture made my heart skip a beat. Why? Because it’s a picture of the bridge facing the house we lived in. I checked the website, and there was more excitement hidden for me: a picture of the house! 😀
The house from another angle
And here’s the picture of the bridge
And here’s why we left Liberia. Yes, it’s been 15 years now!

You may have read my older post “I’m in love with the Nokia N8” . Well, yes it’s a story of love at first sight. I was following the N8’s news even before it was launched.
But, one day on Twitter, I read that Gigalb are running a contest and one of the two prizes is the Nokia N8!!! To enter the contest, I had to:
- “Like” their Facebook page ( here ).
- After “liking” their Facebook Page, the second step was to leave a comment stating why I want to win the phone. And get people to like my comment (for every 10 likes, I get a ticket for the draw and increase the chance of winning)
- On Twitter I had to tweet the following message – RT @GIGAlb: I’m entering to win a Nokia C7 or N8. Just do the same! http://bit.ly/g0bdlZ
Those steps were easy except for the part to get my friends to like my comment. To do that, I spammed my friends! I posted daily the link on FB and asked them to like my comment. Total likes was 34. I thought I’d never win, especially that one of the contestants had more than 110 likes.
I logged in to Facebook and Twitter, and waited for the results. Then came this
“Her”??? Is there a chance for me to win? I replied:
I read the name over and over again to make sure it’s me 😛 and yay it was me 😀
After few days, I got my N8 (thank you @CAbN)
Now after using the N8 for almost 2 weeks, here’s what I think: AMAZING! The all-in-one device.
(I would be brief about it, since there are many articles and reviews like this)
– Camera (for images and videos): very clear, perfect quality. And here’s an example
– Battery life: perfect, especially for someone like me who’s music player or radio is on all the time, Tweeting, taking pictures, playing games
– Multitasking: Yes! You can use as many applications as you can. And with Opera Mobile, internet browsing is wonderful.
– Music: sound is loud and nice 🙂 yes you can really enjoy music with this device
If you want to get yourself a mobile phone, I highly recommend the N8.
بتعجب من يلي بغيرو لهجتن. يعني بيكون الواحد اصلو من الشمال او الجنوب او البقاع, ومش بس اصلو من هونيك, فينا نقول انو ربيان معظم حياتو بالضيعة. بس لمن نزل علمدينة صار بدو يغير لهجتو, وبدل ميقول “واحِد” صار بدو يقول “واحَد” بس فهموني ليش؟ انو وين الغلط اذا بقيت عطبيعتك وحكيت لهجتك؟ خايف اهل بيروت يتضحكو عليك؟ ويتضحكو، صدقني بيتضحكو مرة مرتين وبعدين بيسكتو. مش احسن من انو يتضحكو عليك لمن تغير لهجتك شي مليون مرة بنفس الحديث لانو عم تحكي مع اصحابك من بيروت وكمان في اهلك عم يشاركوا بالحديث؟ شو؟ وبعدين عفكرة، المظبوط هو “واحِد” اذا بدنا نحكي لغوياً وبالفصحة
كل انسان وعندو لهجتو، فكون عطبيعتك الله يرضى عليك وما تغير. لانو بس تغير مش رح تكون مرتاح بحديثك ولا رح تقنعنا بلهجتك المزيفة. وكمان كل ضيعة في عندا لهجتها الخاصة وما حدا عاجبوا حدا، فليش بدك تحكي بس متل اهل بيروت؟
Do you know when you have lots of things to write about, you start to write then for some reasons you decide to stop and log out; but after several trials, you come up with something simple and lame. This post is a result of one of those times 😛 I’ll tell you about my favorite things in life.
fav color: green and blue
fav food: everything except seafood
fav tree: willow tree. oh! if you play cityville, would you please send me the willow tree? thank you in advance! (lool that’s special)
fav natural scene: altocumulus and cirrocumulus clouds; sunset; and a full moon
fav fruit: avocados and mangos
fav song: “Please Forgive Me” Bryan Adams
fav movie: “The Sound of Music”
That’s all I could think of for now, you can ask me in the comments field. I’ll leave you with the most famous “My Favorite Things – Julie Andrews” from “The Sound of Music”
To me it’s all about the Nokia. I am, with pride, a Nokia person. I just can’t picture myself with a mobile phone that is not a Nokia. I currently have the N95, yes the device that does it all.
With all due respect to Blackberry and IPhone, Nokia is the best. Why? Because they have everything you want. And no, not because they have a huge selection of models, but they just have a special touch in their devices. I mean, just like the Mercedes-Benz, their sports cars have a touch of their luxurious cars, and vice-versa. The touch of the Mercedes-Benz. Neither Nokia nor Mercedes-Benz are flawless, but they just make the use of their products a joy.
Blackberries were designed for a special kind of people, and so was the IPhone. But the Nokia was designed for all purposes. Those people excel in the mobile phones industry. Through the N95, E5, and the N8 , they showed us that everything can be given to us in one device. The 5megapixels with Carl Zeiss optics camera in the N95 and E5; but the 12megapixels also with Carl Zeiss optics in the N8. Need I talk about the specifications? NO, google them, and I’m not a techy person, just a normal user. And yes I do care about the camera in my mobile device. With my 3 year old sisters around, I always have to take pictures. Iphone cameras’ picture quality is good, but the Blackberry’s I don’t find it so good. Or what about the storage? 16GB of built-in storage for the N8. SWEET!!! And internet services (chat, e-mail, surfing) are made easy and fun.With the N8, you can put all your devices in one.
So, if I want to change my N95, it will either be to the E5 or the N8. Who am I kidding??? Definitely the N8. But the budget is tight this month, so I’ll wait. 🙂
