Lipstick Dreams

Lipstick Dreams is a light-hearted look at the lives of four very different women, each with their own dreams and disappointments. The play is set in the Blue Heaven Ladies Hairdressing Salon in a small country town. Jo, the manageress, is advised by the bank that the salon is no longer a viable concern. Since 'Brett and the boys' opened a salon across the road Jo and her girls haven't been taking enough to cover the tea bill let alone the interest repayments to the bank. So, with the help of her employees, Jo enters a talent quest at the local Chinese restaurant in the hope that 'if they win' the publicity would start bringing the customers back. On the very day of the contest one of the staff resigns. - Enter one of their customers - Is this the break they need to save the Blue Heaven? A must see play - Laughter, tears, fun and songs that will have you dancing in the aisles!

This play from Australia was super cute!  Put on by the Doha Players with Rae playing one of the leaders.  Fantastic!

Cha Cha Mexican Grill

Thank you Keri and A for the suggestion of Cha Cha Mexican Grill.  Yes it's the closest thing to Chipotle here so far!  The guacamole was perfect.  The cook is Mexican and the kind servers were from Kenya!  I definitely recommend it to those missing Chipotle.  :)

Thai Corner

Everyone has been telling me about a better Thai place than Thai Snack.  Called Thai Corner and located in a little hut in front of Megamart at the Center, this place didn't disappoint.  There is only one small table inside (not so romantic) but perfect for 2 or 3.  Most people take away from here which is probably best.  This place was really great with good prices!!  We got pad thai, papaya salad, tom kha kai coconut soup, and spring rolls.  Yum!!
