Blasphemy or Freedom of speech?

Recent incidents like the death of a student for alleged blasphemy and an Indian singer commenting negatively on Azaan (the call to Muslim prayer) has led me to re-think about blasphemy. So what is blasphemy? By definition: Blasphemy is the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverenceto a deity, to religious or […]

Meaning 

Something: What I mean to you  Everything: What you mean to me

Lost stars

I genuinely admire artists. All artists of all sorts. Actors, painters, singers, story tellers, magicians, you name it. Even doctors are artists to me. And teachers too. God has given them a gift and they are not afraid to express it, no matter the opinion of others. It’s about having faith in yourself. I imagine […]

Optimism 

Hoping the giant zit on your chin will disappear just because it’s shoot day at work and all the pictures taken today would be displayed on your international website and stay there for years.. The zit may disappear tomorrow but not today..

Life

You sit there making videos on your phone that you think is smart I see you I see you while I sit on the bench in this nice park and wonder Why do I exist?  What is my life’s goal? What is the purpose of my life? Am I supposed to lead the life on […]

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 […]

No, Marion, no!

I have always been a fan of Marion Cotillard. There is no doubt to her on screen talents. Not only because of her looks but also because of her looks.  I recently saw these pictures online of her much fuller lips, as compared to her original, thin (beautiful) lips: This is a picture from before: […]

Pride and language

Two people from Mecaland having dinner in a restaurant. Man 1: “How was your weekend with your family?” Man 2: “Oh it was very enjoyable! I didn’t know staying at a hotel could be so much fun. I mean, forget the clean bedsheets and the 24/7 room service. I had so much fun tormenting the […]

Newly weds

Why would annoying newly weds put up something like this as their Facebook status? A virtual cookie for anyone who can guess what it means!

Souq Waqif: Tajine

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 […]

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 […]

Quickie

Not that sort of quickie, you perv. Just wanted to give a small update of the vacation that will soon come to an end. Btw, “Never have I ever” been this happy to announce the end of one. Hmm maybe I should have titled the post “Never have I ever”, but then again, I do […]

Sorry I ignored you, Taylor Swift

Dear everyone who has ever read any post of mine, If i ever offer any advice of any sort to you, on this blog or in person, please do NOT listen to a word i have said. I say this with a very serious face (which you can’t see because I don’t do Vlogs. It […]

Karwa oh Karwa

The normal way of getting around anywhere in Doha for those who don’t have a car is either Uber or Karwa taxis. I myself rely on the latter. Lately, the more I use Karwa, the more I am convinced I should buy a car. The drivers are terrible. I am sorry if you are a […]

Since you’ve been gone 

Life has become duller Evenings quieter  And nothing makes sense anymore
