I`ve just bought some tickets for a football tournament starting next week. I think it is the emir cup. Unfortunately the lady at the counter could not tell me the complete schedule. I only know that the first game will be on Monday at 6:30 p.m. at Al Sadd Stadium (Al Sadd vs. Al Rayan).
Does anybody of you know where to get more informations in English?
I tried already the Homepage of the QFA, but it`s useless, because it is under construction.....like everything in Doha ;-)
I "heard" and I guess people are right when they say that life is not cheap in Qatar. I'm already aware of the rental costs but what about:
1) Food, how big would the weekly grocery store bill be ? Let's say for me and my wife? (No kids)
2) Bills : water, electric, phone, house insurance, internet access, cable TV...
3) Gas (what do they use? unleaded right? Do they use Diesel engines?)
I'm curious about Clubs. I've seen quite a few things about them on the forum. Do they tend to revolve around your workplace (I'll be with QP) or social groups? What are the advantages? What are the costs? I guess any info would be appreciated.
I am interviewing for a middle level role with Qatari Diar Real Estate Development Co ?
How is the company ? have you heard of them ? Do expatriates work there ? Whats the working culture ? Any other info would be very helpful.
This is to remind you to ALWAYS count your blessings...
Like many I am moving to Qatar to work with the Asian Games. Been made aware of mostly positive and some questionable things about the games.
Though I have many questions to better prepare me for my stay--had a couple of questions about the arts in Qatar-- I am a dancer (different types different levels in different types) and write poetry what arts are available in Qatar?
I keep hearing tales about the Asian Games being moved because Qatar is not ready. ANy truth to this because all these people coming here to work are going to be in a mess if it happens.
I would be scared of a job at DAGOC.
Hi I am at present at Abu Dhabi and was asked by my company to relocate myself at Doha. I am with a International company and visa will be sponsored through dealer or our company in Doha.
I am being told by our dealer that
1) visa for Indian are usually not available nowadays
2) I wanted to shift with my family ( wife and 9 month old daughter but according to dealer that I can only sponsor my wife s visa after I am able to submit 6 month Qatar Bank statement after I get my residence and this a govt rule
My partner and I may be moving to Doha soon. We are awaiting confirmation and final offers for employment. We were wondering what salaries are usual for allied health professionals (senior management) and medical receptionists, and what a relatively recently used car would cost?
Seek advise / info; We are from Mumbai, India and are about to shift in 20 days to Doha. We have a live-in maid with us and want to take her with us. someone from Doha yesterday informed that Indians are not allowed to take Indian maids with them - is this true? Our youngest is quite attached to this woman and in a new country it would be comforting top have her with us - is there some way we can take her with us?
Does one need an International Driver's Permit plus one's driver's license from one's home country to drive in Qatar?
Does anyone in Doha successfully use ichat on their Apple to make video calls overseas? I've seen Skype work on a PC from the same internet connection I use but every time I try to contact people on ichat it says there's not enough bandwidth! If I can't get it to work I will soon have a month old MacBook Pro for sale....
Is there such a dish that would distinguish Qatar from neighboring countries or continents.
I am not referring here to general Middle Eastern style fast foods, like ful & falafel, or shish-kebabs, kafta, hommos, shish-taouk, kebbeh and the rest.
I would like to know if there is something like the equivalent of Couscous for a Maghrebian, or Maghrabeyya for a Lebanese or Molokhiyya for an Egyptian for that matter...
Can you eat good quality, Mediterranean style 'grilled' fish at a restaurant?
What would be the Qatari menu for a feast like Eid el-Fitre (la grande bouffe), for example.
Ok, I know Iâ€™m starting to get slightly irritating with this topic, but I do have a genuine healthy obsession with clothesâ€¦
So, I came across some post that one of our fellow bloggers in Qatar recently wrote and it pointed me to this http://news.bbc.co.u.... I was shocked. I had no idea that the Muslim traditional dress had been banned in some parts of Europe and that women were being fined when found to be wearing their burqas in public places.
I cannot even begin to explain why I consider that â€œ romanâ€?said to be dumbest idea. (So, if romans jump from a bridge, do I have to do the same?) I defend everybodyâ€™s right to their own identity wherever they are, I believe that diversity is a positive thing, I am certain that the romans would actually beneficiate much more if visitors brought with them their own ways, their own culture, their own identity.
I believe that different cultures can live in harmony and compliment each other.

Shall we try again & set a confirmed date to meet & play football sometime soon??
