On mid April is my 2nd month in Qatar. I live in the Philippines and this is the first time I went abroad.

I work here as a marketing officer of a limousine company.

I can say, Qatar is a place where I can feelnthat I'm safe. It's a very quiet and peaceful place.

However, being a first timer (expat), I can still feel the homesickness. I miss my country, the people and the usual activities I do there. I can say that Qatar is far far different from my home country.

Now my fellow expats, I need your advise on how can I overcome this homesickness. I know it's normal but for some reason, this homesickness really bothers me.

yeah , it changed radically, i got no life no more lol


okay, seriously,  i do admit there are some good changes such as , i can afford to travel to other countries now, i kinda have become more organized and i do consider that time is a valuable thing now since life here is so busy and you could never finish what you need to do , negative changes , well, i got no life no more lol

We're in the same boat

After I moved in Qatar March 2015, I find Doha city is very clean and vibrant. Good people and expats, Nice working experience.Malls and Hypermarkets are fabulous.
