I remember a conversation with a friend of mine when he mentioned that a friend of his was very keen on using olive oil only. To his friend, this was a deal breaker and he insisted with his femme that everything consumed in the house shall only be eaten if it is prepared in olive … Continue reading About “Health”
Spinach is something I eat daily. I add it in my smoothie (Oh, please don't be grossed out if you have never tried it) and it's a part of my salad. But is it okay to eat spinach every day? Doesn't it contain oxalic acid that stops the absorption of important nutrients like calcium and … Continue reading The truth about Spinach
I have got a problem. I have got to stop talking about being healthy and shit. I mean, not on the blog! God, no. But in real life. I think people are starting to get annoyed. I have noticed that people are open to talk about most things. They can talk about the ''P'' word … Continue reading The P word
I made the huge mistake of ordering a veggie burrito from Mexican grill. OH MY GOD. It was like they didn't even bother with the recipe. It made me question why I didn't just order the chicken options instead. SO THIS IS WHAT THEY MEAN WHEN PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING VEGAN FRET ABOUT WHAT TO … Continue reading I feel ya, my vegan brother
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
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.
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
If you're not Moroccan and want to try a different cuisine this week, I recommend Tajeen or Tajin in Souq Waqif. You may have heard of it, it was closed for a while now but they have finished all the necessary renovations and are ready to go. Best to sit? Rooftop, no questions. Specially during … Continue reading Souq Waqif: Tajine
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
So yesterday at work, I'm talking to an American guest of mine about ordering food online. He's a great guy who's here on business and I really hope he succeeds in getting people interested in the whole shopping-online business. I mean, if there's anywhere it can thrive, it's here. Karachi people be too lazy. So … Continue reading Pete-Za!
It beats me how someone working in the hospitality industry for three years can be so awkward on one on one interactions. Really, I have disappointed myself. Besides emotionally blackmailing my boss to give me annual leaves, the other achievement of the week was that I went on a date. (Source) We wanted to try … Continue reading Yeah, I Have No Class
