Qatar Today - - CULTURE > DOHA DIARY -

I was liv­ing in the UK for a long time and didn't re­ally en­joy be­ing in the cold and rain ev­ery day as I am a Pa­cific Is­lan­der by ori­gin and al­ways craved to be in the sun.

I love what I do here with Trin­ity Tal­ent Qatar, where my clients vary from the United Na­tions to fash­ion de­sign­ers like Louis Vuit­ton, and ev­ery day is dif­fer­ent. Qatar is grow­ing like crazy and I feel that my move brought me to the right place at the right time. I wouldn't change it for the world.

The first restau­rant I went to when I ar­rived was the old Al Ban­dar restau­rant on the Cor­niche by the dhow area. I re­ally miss that place; I re­mem­ber how beau­ti­ful it was, just sit­ting right be­side the wa­ter hav­ing amaz­ing fresh seafood and smoking shee­sha. even knew what a ‘model' did. It was so much fun too.
