Quick break from studying...

I just had to post a link to this:

"A Lebanese bank is giving out loans for cosmetic procedures in this notoriously image-conscious Mediterranean country."

I wouldn't be surprised if something like this also happens in Syria, which as I understand it, also has a similar problem, or should I say disease?

Yeah I see the advertisement all over Beirut and on my way to Tripoli..
Plastic surgeries in Lebanon are popular among both sexes, on a wide scale. It is not the same in Syria, though ladies are now tending to do nose jobs, but it is still on a narrow scale and among the "elite". As for Syrian boys, well, he'll be kicked by another Syrian guy if he had his nose done ;-)

Whew, thanks a lot. Some people were painting a picture for me here that was not too different from Lebanon. :)

You know the Syrian slang phrase: "ray7ili jamalek"?? (enno eh eh mashi)
Tell those who're saying that to you to "yray7o jamalon" ;-)

Thanks for you work and have a good week.

The languages cannot continue to divide the peoples and to give to origin the one that the tyrants (Bush) lie. We have that to exceed the barrier of the languages. We cannot continue to be been deceptive by outlaws. We go to defend this thesis in the whole world all together
