Breast Friends

I did my Masters with this lady. No, not the one on the left, you twit. That is Haifa Wehbe, Lebanon’s version of Connie Breukhoven (Vanessa, weet je nog wel?). I am talking about the lady on the right; Lina. I did my Masters with her, and she is currently campaigning for breast cancer awareness. The campaign is called ‘Breast Friends’; Haifa has the breasts, Lina is the friend.
I had seen the billboards before, but this evening they were giving out autographs in the ABS mall in Ashrafiya. A massive crowd. Lina is a celeb now. Not much to say about it, I kind of liked the fact that I know the lady on the right.

I think Haifa is proper for other kinds of 'health' campaigns. Don't you think so? :))

Haifa is perfect for a breast friends campaign. She has the wherewithall for starts and she has a heart too.
