Expat Life in Qatar

From 330 Days of Sunshine to 330 Days of Rain.

Friday Brunch at Toro Toro Doha, Pinayflyinghigh.com-5
So yes, we’ve moved from Doha to London and the title may be a bit of an exaggeration but you get the gist. We’ve moved from the desert to a greener pasture (quite literally) and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Frankly though, I don’t mind the rain. I’ve had numerous sunshiny days from the Philippines and the Middle East which could last this lifetime and next for me so I say, bri

Doha, Qatar | Taste of Hakkasan

Taste of Hakkasan, Hakkasan Doha - PinayFlyingHigh.com
I love the fact that most of the restaurants in Doha these days are coming up with promotions offering great deal and value for their diners. In a city where water is more expensive than petrol (is it still the case?), we certainly need these promotions. Hakkasan Doha launched their Saturday dining deal called Taste of Hakkasan which gives you a taste of selected dishes from their regular menu for an incredible pri

Ramadan in Doha 2016: Wanassa Tent at Marriott Marquis City Center Doha

June 12, 2016
Wanassa Tent, Marriott Marquis City Center Doha, PinayFlyingHigh.com-21
Marriott Marquis City Center Doha is celebrating Ramadan in their fabulous Wanassa tent, a modern tent with a traditional touch to it. I think from all the tents that I’ve visited, the look and feel of Wanassa tent is my favorite. Not very extravagant and also not very traditional. As soon as we arrived, we were lead to a private majlis which confused me a bit. Private majlis are normally ridiculously overpri

Ramadan in Doha 2016: Ramadan Tent at Four Seasons Hotel Doha

June 11, 2016
Ramadan Tent, Four Seasons Doha, PinayFlyingHigh.com
Who in their right mind declines an invitation from Four Seasons Hotel Doha? Must be crazy right? As hard for me to admit it, I was that crazy person to decline an invite to try iftar at their Ramadan tent as I already had plans on the same day. My heart was broken into pieces as I wrote a reply back to Four Seasons to tell them that I couldn’t make it. Imagine my delight when I received another email telli

Ramadan in Doha 2016: Al Jawhara Tent at Intercontinental Doha The City

June 9, 2016
Iftar at Intercontinental Doha The City, PinayFlyingHigh.com-1
Second iftar invitation was from Al Jawhara Tent at Intercontinental Doha The City. On this particular day, there were two other food events in different hotels here in Doha for Ramadan. Some bloggers went through all three (they deserve an applause and a statue somewhere for sure), some went to two (they deserve an applause as well and a medal) while I, being the lightweight that I am, can only manage to attend on

EMS, The Next Fitness Craze.

June 7, 2016
EMS at Intercontinental Doha The City, PinayFlyingHigh.com-15
I was invited by Intercontinental Doha The City to try out EMS and I said yes without knowing what it was. I saw the words “workout” and “fitness” in one sentence which at first I found weird but then it was a great and welcome break from all the food invites that I’ve been getting. What is EMS? EMS stands for ‘Electric Muscle Stimulation’ which is a full body training exercis
