Doha Based.. Welcome to Qatar!

After a 9-10 hour somber but zestful journey from Manila to Doha, we arrived at their terminal in a cold afternoon. I never thought a deserted country would experience such a polar breeze all throughout the first and fourth quarter of each year. Just a short trip on our way to our designated accommodation at Al Mana Towers. I shared a two-bedroom, 1-bathroom flat with a bright and cheery Japanese girl. Qatar Airways provided a welcome/starter pack to each: (1) Queen size comforter set; (1) Goody Basket together with some basic toiletries. My room was adjacent to an open-lot with some on-going developments. Rowdy and annoying sounds coming from their roadwork machines. Anyway, after settling down, we decided to pay a visit to a nearby store to stock some foodies!
