hmm... its is obvious that many people in this forum dont know any locals or dont want to know any nor our culture and traditions
and thnx for the good positive stuff
go out meet some locals ...... cmon it cant be that hard !!!!
my salary at the end of the month :)
its a peaceful and quite place :)
Being gave me the chance to know what does the word "Loyalty" means
So that's inspiring
The grass & the farms... to grow grass in the desert is not easy... its like doing the impossible...
With proper planning and application they have done it.
Got me thinking.... OMG...If they can do farming here I can do better back home...
I have set a goal to buy a 5 acre property to retire into... do diary farming, poultry farming, etc...
I agree with mak18
*Qatar being an Islamic governed country gives me the freedom to practice my religion without the fear of harassment and discrimination.
*The incredible generosity and helpful nature of many locals.
*The amazing cultural diversity. Thanks to this I have today a truly international circle of friends, and have learned so much from them all.
*Things that we considered luxury items back from where I come from is actually essentials here!
*The large choice of all my most loved products.
*Cheap petrol and gas.
now let's not hijack the thread of MN.... :)
else he'll get angry at us....
Peace, water and electricity!
Zafirah...really? I am so excited then. :) Can we go for mid night photography?
Sulie... I am both... :)
the underpaid but overworked people working here. doing everything they can for their families back home
The most Inspiring thing about qatar is changing from Qtel to Oreredoo
Sulie, I'm serious !
NM .. ROFL
zafirah ,, Are you a male or a female
Ur profile is confusing and ur last comment as well :O)
It was a male before and now i see female
the most inspiring thing....hmm...I'd have to say it is all the many negative things...they inspire me to think positive and become a better person.
Suli: Back off !!!
Marco - it is the samething.. if a person likes something means its a positive thing about that place or thing....
when i see gentlemen Qataris greeting each other (cheek to cheek, nose to nose.. etc.)...
i am inspired to do that! :)
- Looking out the window, seeing many areas of beautiful green grass and trees, despite the fact that we live in a desert!
- Admiring the growing number of high rise buildings that are built on the sand, but yet they don't fall over!
- Driving each day through Doha and watching how some Land Cruisers can fit in gaps in the traffic that only a Tiida should be able to squeeze into!
These are just a few of the inspiring things here in Qatar!
The most inspiring thing about Qatar is it's multi-culture environment. I met most fair minded & ethical people of different races who fought together to maintain the dignity of their profession. All of them have left Qatar now. Thanks to the wasta system.
-Native Qataris are gentlemen, generally
-Sense of safety
-Placed at centre of world-easy to travel around
-Rare opportunity to see so many nationalities/culture/people around, working-living togather
Negatives – some other day :):)
Omais2657: This thread is not about your personal likes/dislikes.
It’s about the thing/things in Qatar you find inspiring.
no polloution... only this is wat i like here :P
A Qatari schoolboy explaining his invention at QF sponsored
“Inventors of the future competition”
The little man seemed precise and his work so prefect I was in awe at what his mind was capable of.
Aspire Zone is inspiring :O)
seeing the different modern architecture-inspired buildings.
Most expatriates are active in social network sites like they don't have another option .
I get inspired by the 'awe inspiring' array of towers along the Corniche walkway from Sheraton R/a down to Theatre R/a..
Kanaan: When I become a resident of Saudi Arabia
Brit: You just sounded like my old phat-ass english teacher at junior high :D May God bless her :)
Not true in this context.. The OP is clearly stating that he wants to know what is the most inspiring thing you have seen.
is getting salary at the end of the month or the most inspiring thing ?
the body said "inspiring". So which is which?
I do wish people read title as well. :)
By the way every positive thing is an inspiration.
I do wish people would read the post..
IT SAYS "What is the most inspiring thing you have ever seen in Qatar?"
Inspiring - NOT positive
Brotherhood, to toe a stuck vehicle during the dune bashing in the desert is found in abundance :)
Anyone associated with Oil & Gas business (Construction, Operation, etc) would love the money that goes into your pockets at the beginning of every month.
It is peaceful.
It is small country hence involvement in various opportunities is easy.
It is not police country like america where immediately someone will say hands up or put your head down so often..
It has job security so far ( In my company )
I am not married but have plan to get marry and grow my kids here.
There is racism but you can easily deal with it.
As long as I dont violate laws this country is more safer than my native place.
Khanan if he does tat, then expect it to be 'oopssed' coz as usual we will have WAR in tat post...:(
can you post another thread ~ "positiev things about KSA' ?
Knight don't jog here in old industrial area its not clean... But still its in Doha...
Tinkerbell and Mak18!
many positive thing about Qatar!
Qatar's fine, it sun-shines most of the times..but the feeling is lay back,
Palm trees grow and rents are low but I keep thinking about finding my way back..
Yeah we know all about the negative side as we harp about it on here almost daily.
family day, NOC, sponsorship system, mistreated maids, poorly paid workers, horrible accidents, bad drivers, and the loose and confusing laws.
That said this thread ain’t about any of that, it’s about the positive things you have seen in Qatar.
less blackouts ! :)
we dont see too much of pollution emited from the cars here as we see back home ! :)
we dont have to pay any tax here as we r payin back home ! :)
I like the fact there is no income tax and that Qatar Airways fly to many destinations now, especially with Qatar being centrally placed.
big, fast and foricius land cruisers flash back as if there is no tomorrow ! :(
Friday's the holiday
The Diversity !
With its two sides the Bad and the Good
Doha is a clean and beautiful city...I love jogging on the Corniche walkway everyday. People are helpful to pull the cars out of sand..lol
I can afford to do whatever I want in Doha which wouldn't have probably been possible back home. In short the quality of life is much better here.
the 'Family Day' at most of the malls are so inspiring !
Rizks just called to ask you to please elobarate on the excesses :O)
The departure lounge
I would say the large family strong relationship.
A relatively safe environment for children and teens
I love the guy who drives around in the jazzed up car and brings a little joy to the place
I love the national day parade and am inspired by the site of local childrewn dressed and painted up in Qatari colours
Suliman: I think you too misunderstood the thread
It’s about most positive things in Qatar
I don’t see anything positive about Karak Chai made from Tap water!
Ok,, One positive thing about Qatar
Rizks the Fox :O)
Rizks: the thread is about positive things you have seen in Qatar
It Ain’t about your **** “0” blood group!
M sorry for my ignorance !
"O" My God,,, Rizks you liar fox
Thelonius, my blood has tongue and he shouted and told me tat it is 'O' positive...:(
Give me time to think
my blood group is 'O' positive !
your coloured glasses, there are many positive things happening and about Qatar.
Just you need to widen your spectrum.
For me, my social status, financial secuirty and peaceful envoirment. I couldn't have all these in my home country.
Thank You Qatar for being generous and kind host. I can adjust myself to the few short-comings.
The 28th day of the month on my calendar whilst in Qatar...:)
