It is the sales season now in Doha and the malls are packed with buyers. The deals that are being offered these days are really tempting, ranging from 50 to 75% discounts on some items!

Yesterday, as typical Doha residents, we headed to the malls and joined the crowd of shovers and pushers. We wanted to look decent for our upcoming Amman trip so we bought ourselves a couple of nice items.

Our best purchase was a multi-region Sony DVD player. Finally, after a year plus of watching movies on Jeff’s PlayStation2 and sometimes on the laptop, we now have a dedicated machine for this task. It will also play MP3s and make slideshows from our JPEG photos. Jeff said it even accepts dual voltage, so we can use it in the US too! Life is good.
