Can someone please tell me the price range of new sony MP3 player, digi cam and Dell laptop in Doha. Should I bring my own ? I just thought I want to get some new ones there. I heard that electronic goods are tax-free.
Anyone have any suggestions for a poll on the site? Come up with something good and we'll run it!
As I will maybe (the decision will be made next week) stay for a quite long time in Doha, I have been wondering if I could continue my favourite sports over there. So, are there facilities for climbing and Archery as well as a shooting range?
Could any of you please advise me on where i could take up Arabic Classes here in Doha. Is it possible to be more specific with what you choose , as in if you wish to only learn how to speak or just read and write.
I'm new to Qatar and I work in Education City.... I'm wondering if anyone can tell me about Scuba Diving in Qatar? I'm PADI certified with about 120 dives (Advanced Open Water and Rescue Certified). I'm looking for diving buddies and for dive shops and boat operators in Qatar. Also, is there a diving club here?
We having a coffee again on 31st of May 2006... any ladies (again sorry guys!) want join us are more than welcome. Please e-mail me for venue and timing in novita77/-a-t-/hotmail.com

What are good places where you can hang out with your special someone. When I say good places I mean romantic spots (ambience, food, service). Places which can be visited several times in a month. Please don't mention 5 star hotel restaurants or coffee shops.
I am ready to start my 30 hours trip (3 flighs) to Doha !!! I am very exciting about this change in my life (and very sad to leave my family, friends, my house, my culture ... ).
I would like to say thanks for all the posts in this site, they help me a lot !!!
Wish me luck and see you sunday in Doha !!!
Saw this accident in Qatar on YouTube...I wonder if you're insured for something like this!
IBQ told me it is not allowed to put a stop payment on my cheque in Qatar without a police report signed by both parties. Is this true?
Cheque was issued for services not rendered, 30+ days.
Ever wanted statistics about Qatar? Check out The Qatar Planning Council's statistics page - via Marjorie in Qatar:
Recently a coworker pointed me at a website that made me ecstatic with the joy that only happy little numbers can bring: The Qatar Planning Council's statistics page.
Now we can all read up about those nagging questions that seemed not to have answers, like Qatar's divorce rate (30%), what percentage of court cases are for traffic violations (95%), how many cases of leprosy are diagnosed a year (15), how many of Qatar's women get married under the age of 15 (about 7 a year) -- I could go on! I'll just try not to snigger too loudly that the graph on education status misspells "illiterate."
Here's the most disturbing one so far: Sentences Passed Against Convicts by Type of Penalty and Type of Crime. 420 people were flogged for sexual crimes in 2003? WTF??
Have fun with all those numbers and be sure to post some of the interesting ones on Qatar Living for us.
I just got that email..sounds interesting..
Staging their first large-scale musical production since the huge success of â€˜The Sound of Musicâ€™ exactly two years ago, the Doha Players are staging Lionelâ€™s Bartâ€™s musical â€˜OLIVER!â€™ at the College of the North Atlantic, Qatar next week, sponsored by HSBC, CNAQ and DTM. The show starts at 7pm on the 24th, 25th, 26th and 27th May with an extra matinee performance at 2.30pm on Friday and Saturday (26th & 27th)
Since the tragic loss of the Doha Playerâ€™s Theatre in March last year, the Players have been busy re-inventing themselves at alternative venues around Doha and have been most fortunate to have been offered the use of the splendid new 500-seat Auditorium at the state-of the art CNAQ Campus (near Landmark).
The 100-strong multinational cast and crew of â€˜OLIVER!â€™ have been working long hours for the past four months putting together what promises to be a wonderful family show. Music for the performance is being provided live by a small orchestra and the large contingent of talented girls and boys from various Doha schools in the cast brings boundless energy and atmosphere to this very lively musical. Opening with the stage set in a seedy workhouse in Victorian London, the musical follows the story of a young orphan lad (Oliver) discovering his roots whilst being tempted towards a life of crime by the old and machiavellian crime-master Fagin. Menace and nastiness comes in the shape of the villain of the piece, Bill Sikes, whose performance will probably get a few knees trembling! Will Oliver be drawn to â€˜The Dark Sideâ€™? Will Fagin add another young innocent to his gang of ragged pick-pockets? Bring the family along to CNAQ next week and find out!
Tickets available now at ICM, Music Master Landmark Mall and Art of Business Office. Tickets QR60 (students half-price). Snap â€˜em up quick before they sell out!
O.k ..ever since super7 said in the "juicy debate" forum that "actions speak louder than words" it's just been eating at me!
I don't want to pick a fight, but I feel I need to explain...
I did some online shopping on ebay last time, and I bought two NBA basketball jerseys, and they're too big on me, so I decided to sell them. If you're a NBA fan, you might like my stuff, or you can buy it as a gift for your boyfriend.
Here are some details about the two jerseys:
