Qatar to launch unified platform for submitting workers complaints

The Minister of Administrative Development Labour and Social Affairs, has affirmed the commitment of Qatar to continue its relentless efforts aimed at promoting and protecting workers rights and providing a safe and healthy work environment.

Qatar’s people responded very well to vaccination campaign

“More than half a million people have now had both doses and are fully vaccinated, and every week more than 160,000 doses are given. The drive through vaccination centres have been a huge success and so far more than 170,000 people have visited the vaccination centres at Lusail and Al Wakra” said Dr. Soha Al Bayat, Head of Vaccination at the Ministry of Public Health.

More than 1.5 million doses have been administered since the start of the national campaign, and around 44% of the adult population have now received at least one dose of vaccine.

Car dining: A COVID-19 alternative to dine in

Diners in Doha can enjoy restaurant meals from the safety and comfort of their vehicles, as many eateries have started a drive-in service for those who want to enjoy eating out during COVID-19 restrictions. Many restaurants have adopted this approach as a way to continue receiving customers without breaking COVID-19 precautionary measures. Customers can have their food and drinks inside their cars with special setups. Each meal order comes on a customizer tray that fits in the narrow space between the driver seat and steering wheel . Some restaurants serve using small trays that fit in between the driver and passenger seats.

Qatar’s weather Today

Doha will see temperatures between 25 and 35 degrees. Elsewhere in the country it will be between 19 and 38 degrees.

Now today’s COVID update.

In the last 24-hour period, there have been 650 new cases of COVID-19 and 1,527 recoveries. Unfortunately, there were also 7 Covid related deaths. Which means for the ninth day running there has been a decrease in active cases, today dropping by 884 giving us a new current total of 14,766 active cases.

I’m starting to get into the spirit of Christmas already. And I’m not the only one. With retailers already putting up their Christmas displays. With so many that would normally have travelled home for the holidays, not being able to this year (THANK YOU VERY MUCH COVID!). I’m hoping for something nice and festive in the hotel’s and restaurants to make Christmas in Qatar a bit more… well… Christmasy. Qatar has, shall we say, reduced the prominence of Christmas over the previous few years. Anyway here’s hopping.

An Indian Restaurant worth discovering

I need to tell you about a really nice Indian restaurant Vic and I discovered near Abu Hamour. While out for a drive we both felt hungry and both fancied a curry. So we check our Entertainer App for a nearby Indian restaurant and Kababs and Kurries caught our attention. We decided that Kababs & Kurries would be a good choice as it’s located in 01 Mall and we could pop into the Mega Mart branch there at the same time.

Upon arrival

We arrived in Kababs & Kurries around lunch time. It was not busy with only two tables occupied. Staff were warm and welcoming and Veg & Non Veg Thali offerseated us in one of their booths that had the ability of becoming private by closing their curtains (which we did not). We were working our way through the menu pondering which two courses to order when I spotted an advertisement on an adjacent table for a lunchtime offer. Our Entertainer App had a voucher for ‘Buy one main course, get another main course free’. So we intended to order two main courses and share them, which is our normal modus operandi. But we decided not to use our Entertainer voucher and go for the ‘Non Veg Thali’ at QR 55 each instead (only available 12pm to 4pm).

After ordering we were invited to select which flavor yogurt drink we wanted to accompany our meal. I can’t remember what the options were, but both Vic and I went for mango. Whilst waiting for food, I started sipping away at my mango yogurt drink and considered that in other establishments I would have been charged around QR 20 for the drink alone. And it would have been worth it! I love yogurt drinks and this was delicious. We were also given nibbles and dips to keep us occupied while awaiting the main event.

Tastes as good as it looks

When our food arrived it looked amazing. And it tasted every bit as good as it looked. The meats were boneless and good cuts, cooked to perfection. The sauces were tangy and bursting with flavor. Vic had ordered hers less spicy than mine, and they got both of our spice heats spot on, so we could both enjoy our meal. Amazingly we both managed to finish our meals. But it was a while before either of us could leave the table as we were both so full.

Would we go again?

This meal went straight into my top 10 of favorite Indian meals ever. Was it worth QR 55 each? Hell yes! Would we go back? Absolutely, and we would be prepared to cross town to do it.

If the Thali is a bit more than you want to pay for a spot of lunch, then there is their ‘Executive Lunchbox’ to consider as well. We noticed one of the other tables enjoying Kababs & Kurries Executive Lunchbox, and that looked well worth a go as well.
