The 2017 World Predictions – Between reality and illusion, between today and tomorrow

Last year, out of curiosity, I decided to translate the predictions of Michel Hayek for the year of 2016. The article proved to be popular so I decided to do a preliminary translation of the 2017 predictions.

Disclaimer:

  2. I do not claim the accuracy of the translation below.

  4. Please watch the original video with the help of an interpreter if you want to know about all of his predictions.

Funny Commercial [Arabic] – Siblou – Frozen / easy to prepare food

I usually don’t blog about advertisement but I do blog about videos and things that I find funny.

The following commercial is really funny. If you don’t understand Arabic Lebanese, then let me summarize the gist of the commercial.

The lady receives guests and she prepares Siblou in the kitchen so fast. Because Siblou has a variety of frozen food choices, the lady emerges as a different personality based on the food she’s offering. She speaks Chinese for instance when serving the Chinese food. The premise is that the Siblou brand would really taste as if a Chinese cook prepared it! Similarly, she speaks speaks British, French and Japanese accordingly. At the end, she morphs back to the original lady and joins the guests!
