WFPD: Your New Year’s Resolution

I am sure that by this point I have pissed off all of my friends because I can not shut up about being healthy as well as eating healthy. For me, eating healthy is not about having a large salad bowl one day of the week. Healthy eating must be consistent for you to feel … Continue reading WFPD: Your New Year’s Resolution

This is not a ”New year, New me” kind of post

And isn't it too early for that kind of thing, anyway? Anyway. ANYWAY. Since the last few months, I have been making a lot of changes to my lifestyle and diet. Part of this I owe to my very kind Irish friend who introduced me to the plant based diet. Part of this I owe … Continue reading This is not a ”New year, New me” kind of post

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

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

Raise your hand if you can’t swim

So if you didn't know this, I should tell you now: I don't know how to swim. Why? No one was bothered to teach me. And I never was interested. But I thought that it is high time I should learn to swim. Who knows, if war breaks out I might have to swim across … Continue reading Raise your hand if you can’t swim

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

European Jazz Festival in Katara Village

Had I not indulged into a friendly chat with Mr. Rolf, I would not have known of this musical (magical)night taking place in Katara. Well done, Doha Time Out, you have disappointed me once again! The 3rd European Jazz festival took place in the Cultural Village on Monday evening. Essentially, it was a five day … Continue reading European Jazz Festival in Katara Village
