Why QIFF wasn’t all that

Apparently, food festivals aren't really about selling mouth watering delicious food for cheap price. What it is about is marketing your company or your brand. Purely that. And selling shit (well, sort of) food for more money. So if you're thinking you're going to go to food festivals and enjoy ah-mazing food, you're shit out … Continue reading Why QIFF wasn’t all that

Shakespere & Co.

I was at Pearl Qatar today to celebrate a friend's birthday. Yeah I know, I just threw someone a party a few weeks ago, which TOTALLY flopped by the way. But I like celebrating other people's birthday as much as I hate celebrating my own. The place we chose was Shakespere & co. Yeah, I … Continue reading Shakespere & Co.

Why everyone hates Doha but I don’t

I have never met anyone, except myself, who doesn't hate Doha. Qataris excluded, because I have never met one, all the other residents truly hate it. All the conversations are about what a shit place it is and how they desperately want to move somewhere else. I don't really blame them. There's not a lot … Continue reading Why everyone hates Doha but I don’t

How is life in Qatar really after the diplomatic crisis?

"What it is like to live under siege?" I read that headline somewhere. The opening line was about how people are living in Qatar after the recent diplomatic crisis. Of course, it is true that all business has been affected and will continue to be so unless the countries involved try and come up with … Continue reading How is life in Qatar really after the diplomatic crisis?

Picasso & Giacometti at a fire station

Visiting a fire station may not be the ideal way to spend a day off from work. But it also wasn't your normal fire station. The building that I visited today is known as Doha Fire station and it was an actual one up until 2012, when the building was given to Qatar Museums. It … Continue reading Picasso & Giacometti at a fire station

Praablam customer

I am thinking of suggesting my training manager to send our employees to Karwa's main office, in order to better our customer service skills. Have you ever been in a Karwa? I am in awe of the way they treat their customers!* I recently took a trip to Villagio and decided to visit one of … Continue reading Praablam customer

Souq Waqif: Rice and Noodles

Souq Waqif is one of my favorite places in Qatar. It's only a ten minutes walk from my workplace and has a range of cuisines to offer (but because I am lack someone to try new things with and because I am scared of change, I end up going to the same restaurants I go … Continue reading Souq Waqif: Rice and Noodles

I have got these feelings for you

I do not like discriminating against certain nationalities but some people really give their countries a bad name. Pyramids, for example, works in our Finance department. Finance and Front Office is always at war so it is not surprising that Pyramids and I are not besties. Apart from that, he also suffers Stage 10 superiority complex. … Continue reading I have got these feelings for you

Cherry blossom trees in Qatar!

I heard about the Chinese Festival at MIA through a brochure passed to me by a co-worker. And even though I had only checked out Doha Time Out a few days ago, there was nothing mentioned about this on the site. Funny, don't you think? Regardless, it was crowded enough. Specially on the third day, … Continue reading Cherry blossom trees in Qatar!

44 thoughts I have at clubs

I hope there's no queue tonight Shiiiiteee. I jinxed it. That girl behind us is a whore. Not judging. Just saying. Can't wait to just get inside and dance. (After finally getting inside)Shit. Maybe I was better off outside. I feel so under dressed. Roommate realizes she has forgotten her cigarettes at home. Not the first … Continue reading 44 thoughts I have at clubs

Do I really need this?

I really didn't imagine my life would turn around completely after coming to Qatar. Since I came here, I have turned into this person who actually thinks before spending and refrains from splurging. To be more precise: I had been so ungrateful, living at my mom's place and eating free food. How long did I thought … Continue reading Do I really need this?
