Here are few tips and tricks to survive a dust storm :-
It’s dust storm season when wind speeds pick up and the air can turn gritty with dirt particles from dry farming areas, construction sites, and unpaved roads.
When inhaled, dust particles settle deeply into lungs and can irritate or damage sensitive tissues in the respiratory system. People with respiratory illnesses, the elderly, young children, pregnant women, and anyone engaged in strenuous physical activity outdoors are most at risk.
The ‘ardah is one of many folk-music traditions that Arabs in the peninsula refer to collectively as al-funun al-sha‘abiyyah, the folk arts, or more simply, al-fulklur, folklore. Varying by region, and again by town and city within each region, individual traditions are known as an art (fann) or type (lawn). Many combine song with drumming, clapping , group dancingand poetry . Performers wear regional costumes and sometimes dance with props, such as the swords , khanjar (dagger), spears and rifles in the ‘ardah or the bamboo cane in some regions in the peninsula
To get the full sense of these arts, one has to see them as well as hear them. They are poetry, song, music, rhythm, dance and costume all rolled into one.

It was the first time that I have been in Abu Hamour area and realized that there is a shopping mall as well. Dar Al Salam shopping mall. How come I missed that!
Dar Al Salam Mall is a UAE based chain and is just 30 minutes away from Doha City Center.
It’s one of the newly opened shopping malls in Doha and I loved it. This is the first time I shopped without any stress in Carrefour and no queue in cash, there is no crowd no touching each and every fruit, vegetable or bread, you enjoy your shopping. Compared to other Carrefour`s this one was a smaller and do not have electronic item part. But you will have a chance to find better vegetables and fruits.

Enana took on the task of reviewing the pages of Arab history, and especially of women who took part in its making.
The dance drama, “Julia Dumna,” portrays the active role of women through the ages.
The show attempts, through a mix of drama, dance, and expression, to take the audience outside the framework of time and place to feel the depth of Arab history, through highlighting the life of an Arab princess, Julia Dumna.
The show runs from June 6 - 9 in Building 16, and entrance is free.
The story begins with a rite of devotion to the sun god led by Julia Dumna.
Immediately following, she meets the Roman emperor, Septimus Severus of Phoenician origin, during the parade of his Middle Eastern army in Homs. They fall in love and agree to marry.
What do you think the CityFilm team needs to do and include in the program for this year?
In other words what cannot be left out while promoting Qatar?
More info: Following the successful CityFilm and CityBiz campaigns in Qatar in 2012, CityFilm will further strengthen, improve & expand the joint initiative in 2013, that will not only outline the contemporary image of Qatar, but also correspond with city marketing strategy and core values as formulated by partnering organizations.
It was a good move by Qatar Emir making Health Insurance as Mandatory. Its already covered to some of us... but many private companies were avoiding it...
Now many lower level and middle level employees will also be happy..
Hopefully the Law will give basic or mandatory benefits to be covered.
This will be worst if the company offer little less salary to employees because of the Premiums they have to pay to Insurance Companies.
I have seen previous posts asking if there is a Thai community in Qatar. But they are both old posts and not extremely helpful.
My Thai wife has come to live with me in Qatar and I am looking for Thai's that she can socialize with. I can be found on Facebook with the same ID.
I am also looking for places I could get fruits and vegetables more familiar to her - unripe mangoes and papayas. That she can make food she is familiar with when she has a craving for a taste of home.
Thanks in advance.
