I'm sure you'll meet plenty of people! Hope you meet good people though! In my experience most philipinos are friendly ^_^

Except ONE, she works/used to work at City Center Cinema giving out tickets. Super rude :P

Good evening Amnesia!

I'm a new joiner, i joined after reading some interesting topics,.,

I have some few clarifications with regards to the couple staying together in Doha.
It is really necessary to have a marriage license when staying together in one room?
If the couple has got the papers, what are they going to do with it? are they going to take it?
Actually, I heard from a friend of mine that some people are checking the house in the evening? Is it true?

I'm here in Doha for almost six months now and my husband will arrive in 2 weeks time. We've been married but we didn't changed the status and I'm not using his family name for some reasons that, we can't apply together in one company if we are couple so we avoid changing our status since the beginning.
Would it be a problem if we stay together and we both have different family name? But we have papers with us.,
Please advise, I need your opinion.

well im sorry to hear about that amnesia. most of the time those kind of people you meet from our country, are rude /unethical due to the following reasons:

1. Problems back home, family and financial turmoils mostly
2. Homesickness, and hatred or angst against perhaps people who maybe harrass them
3. Some people maybe conceited, as you know for most people back home, being abroad is a privilege, they feel like they are some kind of monarchs or royalty (as far as their friends and family back home is concerned), so it shows on their attitude abroad.
4. Conceitedness. There is a stereotype in the philippines saying "nakatikim lang ng konting pera, kala mo na kung sino". It means, "just tasted the benefit of a bit more money, and they think they are already above everyone else". Sad but true for some, and they even do that to their own kinsmen. In my number of years in the middle east, i always encounter those types.
5. Maybe she just had her period :)
6. Or maybe thats just her, period, everywhere she goes, all time anytime.

but i do hope it doesnt generalize your thought. if ever you encounter people like that, just thing of those 6 factors above, and i do hope and i mean it, i do hope its not #4 all the time :)

cheers buddy

hmm, dress modestly, (compared to the rest of the year), don't eat in public, and be extra polite :D

Ramadan is about being pure. So that means no bad words, no bad thoughts, no sexual things, etc...

Hey Amy, invite your friends over to this group, I'm sure you could start something great (if you're interested of course :P)
