The Noodle House at the Pearl has a nice location and view of the Pearl. The prawn fried rice was quite good but the chicken satay was not peanut flavored enough. The mango pudding was also quite good and very filling.

Somehow we took a wrong turn from Landmark Mall and ended up driving almost to Al Khor. We turned around though and then got lost in downtown Doha. Finally, we got ourselves oriented and drove towards the Pearl. While still a bit lost, we had this amazing surprise of loads of camels on the side of the road!! Naturally, we had to stop.
The food was not too special, but did make decent leftovers. The best was the mango juice and the location of Opera Cafe. It is upstairs so there is a view of the mall below if you have a nice seat by the edge. It's almost as if you are outside in an elevated cafe with a view of the streets below.
The new Glow West Bay location event was so much fun. They had Cold Stone ice cream being made right there and coffee. I also got a free hair straightener from the goody bag! They were doing complementary beauty services as well. It was completely packed with the women expat community.
They had a few canvases and certainly looked like a good place to buy canvases but they were pretty much all sold out. The only thing that remained was some really huge ones and some square ones. I spoke with one of the sales representatives and he said I could try Colour Note which was nearly and just a few minutes drive.
I did see this cute thing at Jarir Bookstore though!
I drove over to Colour Note and this place is great! They are located really close to Thai Snack. They had loads of canvases made of different materials and even had black canvases. Additionally, there were many other art supplies. I ended up getting 4 canvases: 36x27cm (30 QR), 46x38cm (36 QR), 50x70cm (81 QR), and 22x16cm (24 QR). The quality seems pretty decent so far!
