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!

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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Life has become duller Evenings quieter  And nothing makes sense anymore

The young Pope says that he renounces his fellow men and women because it is easier to love God than to love humans. He said that he was incapable of withstanding the suffering brought on by loving human beings. He said to the Swiss girl, that it would be wonderful to love her the way […]

It’s no surprise that we Pakistanis grow up with a great exposure to Indian dance, cinema and music. I am not a fan to be honest but I am familiar with most of them specially those who are considered legends. One of them is Asha Bhosle. I hardly remember any of her songs now but […]

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. […]

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 […]

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, […]

I don’t have answers to “Surely you must have a picture of him? Or an old t-shirt pf his? His grandfather’s old watch? Or a perfume he brought for your birthday? A locket with a pendant that says something sweet? Or perhaps a ring engraved?” “No,” I tell them “I don’t have any of these.” They […]

I am a writer who doubts everything that I write. Is it because I doubt everything I see as well? Like being stuck in one of my lucid dreams, trying to break free…   And she said: “What’s the matter with doubt? I think the world could use a bit of doubt” And he said, […]
