Welcome back to part 2. Al Khor Park aims to have 172 animals and birds of 22 species entertain visitors in the park. The weather last December was far from cooperative, although significantly better hovering at early to mid 20’s. Most of the animals remained in their sheds, far from prying eyes, but a few did come out to wink and say hello. Continue reading “Al Khor Park, Part II”
I have been to Al-Khor Park a couple of times, and am still surprised at how under-the-radar it remains. Therefore I decided to blog about this beautiful place to spread the word about the amazing new works and renovations that have gone into the place since it first opened in 1983. It’s really amazing the attention to detail and how family-friendly it has become that a family can easily spend an entire day there as it’s got all the amenities one could need.

My first Time and Again was such a success that it left me wondering why my readers do not interact with me more. The numbers prove it was a hit, but the comments come down to a big fat zero.

Renown Qatari cook Nawal Al Sayed is hosting a two-week event at Qatar Foundation called “A Taste of Qatar.” Any one can drop by the HQ cafeteria and help themselves to a generous array of Qatar food, buffet style. This Qatari food however comes with a twist; a healthy twist. Traditional dishes are made using lighter ingredients and healthier substitutes. The vineleaves, for instance were made using fresh silverbeet leaves and stuffed with quinoa instead of rice. The fish was baked, not fried. A variety of tangy, spicy, and sour pickles were placed at every table and the flavors simply burst in your mouth. Unfortunately I was only able to attend today, and the event ends this Thursday 8th December. A buffet meal goes for 30 QAR (about $8), and is a great experience to the sadly under-the-radar rich Qatari food heritage. Continue reading “A Taste of Qatar”
Having over a thousand recipes archived on MCW, I thought it was high time I share a list of recipes I find myself making time and again. These recipes are reflective of my personal favorites, as well as family and friends’ favorites, ranging from the basic breakfast, lunch, and dinner, to afternoon teas, snacks, and beyond. Unable to restrict myself to a single post, I will be posting a series of these favorites in a series of posts containing 20 to 25 recipes each. Here is part 1:
