LET'S START WITH SHAWARMA! And so I have found another shawarma jaunt folks, a charcoal grilled shawarma place no less. It has been a few months since it opened, and with other "quickie- food" outlets in its immediate vicinity, this Woqod Station just became my favorite fast-food station fuel station ever! Where? Shawarma Booteela, Woqod Petrol Station,... Continue Reading →
The fabulousness of an imperfect life.
There are possibly only three constants in life- boredom, change and death. Death is of course irreversible and inevitable and we shall talk no more of it, at this present juncture. We shall let death lie in wait, for another day. Boredom and change are inseparable bedfellows. One cannot be without the other, and one... Continue Reading →
RUNDAY MONDAY- I’m in tears!
I know it isn't Monday yet, but I couldn't pass by without sharing something as incredible as this. Every time I was in rotation at the Orthopedic OR, I remember how a the whole "macho- butcher-bunch" would have a good laugh at my "little" self. A particularly pleasant 6 feet 3 gentleman would "shield" me... Continue Reading →
The Ladies Lounge- Let’s talk these bags again. And my favorite is..
So, we are still talking makeup/ wash bags here. And my favorite ones are has always been the Ted Baker ones. For long, I loved this pale pink, rose-gold(ish) and white one and lusted over it at a store in London, at a time when I still did not know how to apply eye-liner and thought... Continue Reading →
The Ladies Lounge- My top wash- bag suggestions.
The purists may disagree, but in my book wash-bags, toiletry cases, cosmetic pouches are all the same thing. They serve interchangeable purposes and only slightly differ in size. I like my cosmetic cases to be fairly compact and travel friendly. When not travelling, the smaller ones are usually perched on the vanity, stocked up with... Continue Reading →
The Ladies Lounge- Pick ’em up now! Steals, deals and trinkets for the week.
The weather has been a real stinker this month. I'm hoping against hope that we are past the heat zenith and can't wait for the cooler months to arrive. Unfortunately though, the cooler months are still some time away, and for now all I can do is seek solace in the parky confines of the air-conditioned... Continue Reading →

We have not had a food post in a while folks. 😉 Ramadan (I promise, this will be the last Ramadan post this year!) is just about wrapping up. Eid might (or might not) be less than 24 hours away. And boy oh boy, what a month it has been! Chaotic, stressful, insane, (pious of... Continue Reading →
This, that and what’s up.
The past week has been killer. Nasty killer, not fantastic killer. And it has been that kind of week, when everything hits you from all sides, corners, angles and directions. Yet, I wouldn't call it a disaster. We are alive and standing, and therefore things aren't even remotely in the disaster corner. The week before... Continue Reading →
Currently Crushing- Aah, thy lovely June!
All June I bound the rose in sheaves, Now, rose by rose, I strip the leaves. Robert Browning Alas, June isn't a lovely month for us folks here in Qatar. Stuck between the desert and the sea, June is never that beautiful month that sees the ebb of summer and the promise of fall. It... Continue Reading →
