so miz4ever, I will be staying alone in Doha, but would U tell me how much I would spend a month on food, pubbing once a week, movies in a theatre, services like maid and cable tv and frequent calls to India and perhaps short weekend holiday a month? and if I buy a mid sized car, what would be the monthly EMI etc?

Out here in India,I live a upwardly mobile life with my own house in the suburbs, a big car, partying out, once a year foreign holdays etc...

Good Luck!!
