The ladies lounge- New love.

I love mascaras. The good ones of course. And though some of the Maybelline ones are good and I'd been repurchasing them for years, I felt it was time to move on. For a couple of years now, I have been on the hunt for a new "go-to" mascara. I tried several top rated, blogger... Continue Reading →

The time of our lives.

I had an epiphany this afternoon. It wasn't a particularly extraordinary afternoon; it was in fact one of those mundane, lowly ones. I was driving home after a gruelling  8 hour ER shift and the traffic was uncommonly horrendous. I had to wait full hog at every one of the nine, painfully long traffic signals... Continue Reading →

Winds of change and change of winds.

Boy oh boy is Doha awake at midnight today! A there-one-minute-gone-the-next shower the previous night; a few degrees drop in temperature, a cool ocean breeze and the eve of the weekend- the perfect recipe for the folks of Doha to rush out onto the roads at night apparently. In droves. The grills have come out of hibernation,... Continue Reading →

Another adventure?

I have a confession to make- I still don't drive in Qatar. Mainly because I couldn't be bothered with taking a test (my home country licence doesn't cut it here), and also because The Mister never had to take one :-/. Irrational I know! He has been to all sorts and kinds of countries (South... Continue Reading →

Mum’s packing again.

Mum's packing again (we have to do it more than once a month it looks like). And I tell you, it's the funniest thing. Even Papa finds it comical. Her antics are the same every time. She starts off with a proclamation that she will pack light. That she will not carry a single, unnecessary... Continue Reading →

I am alive.

I am alive folks! I have not fallen off the face of the earth, naa. Just suffering from a serious case of preoccupation and scatterbrained-ness that does not allow the processing of a single coherent stream of thought. I have about half-a-dozen incomplete and senseless posts lying in my drafts folder. Many long pending posts... Continue Reading →

Chillin’!

I love Saturdays (or Thursdays, depending on which part of the world I am in at the moment). It is a warm, fuzzy kind of love. It is conditional though. I wouldn't love it if I were on call/ duty the next day. So yeah... We are spending the evening chillin' at home. Not in... Continue Reading →
