As a teenage girl, one of my weekend activity was « malling with my friends ». As we got older, we preferred going on road trips, going to the beach, and having parties, but I’ll never forget that part of my life where I would get all excited about meeting my friends (and boys …. ssshh!) at the mall. It’s funny because we wouldn’t even shop for stuff, we just liked walking in circles around the mall. Oh and the drama – we loved that a lot too!
Truthfully, I had never heard about a Desert Safari before our trip to Qatar. To me, Safaris were the kind you would find in South Africa or Namibia. But when my sister-in-law mentioned this, we were definitely curious!
I am super excited to finally write about our recent trip to Doha, Qatar. For one, we discovered and explored a beautiful country. And two, we were able to spend time with family – my husband’s father, his older brother, and his younger sister.
Hello! In 2016, the Husband, Baby Girl, and I travelled to Doha, Qatar. This was such a great and fun trip. The Husband’s sister and brother live in Doha and my father-in-law decided to stopped by Qatar before eventually going to the States for a couple of months. So this was the perfect opportunity for the family to be together.
Because I meet a lot people, thanks to my work, interesting things always seem to happen to me. My friends, trainees, and colleagues always tease me that I should write a compilation book.
Sadly though, I also tend to attract bad luck. A wise person once told me that God hands these challenges to the strongest ones, knowing that they can go through anything. If that’s the case, then I am a freaking superhero. ;p
But enough of that. The question is: What happened on New Year’s Eve??
As you might know, I am half Filipino-half French and I am married to a Filipino man. As Filipinos, it is part of our culture and heritage to eat rice everyday. Back in the Philippines, we ate rice up to 3 times a day, but here in France we usually have rice once a day. But that’s just because breakfast is usually a quick one and we don’t usually eat lunch at home. I was told recently by a client that apparently Asians have a sort of stomach enzyme which makes it easier to eat and digest rice. I still have to confirm that information. While eating rice so regularly is a real pleasure for us, it’s not the case for our daughter, Baby Girl. She has a hard time understanding why rice is so frequent on our dining table. LOL. If she could cook our meals, she would prepare pasta and French fries. I do try to cook pasta from time to time, but I never make fries at home. The smell of cooking fried potatoes is not one that I particularly like, so we save that for when we go to the restaurant.
