Awarding of Plaque of Recognition to the Recipients of BLQ Readers’ Choice 2020

On January 22, 2020, the results of the first-ever BEST LIFE QATAR Readers Choice were announced via a simple ceremony held at the newly opened Sari-Sari Asian Fusion Cuisine in 03 Mall.

Here are the READERS’ CHOICE for 2020:





They are truly deserving of this honor for their outstanding works in social media promotions, online contests, and in-store events. Garnering a share of 26.31% from the total number of votes, #MaxsRestaurantQatar emerged as the top choice out of the 10 nominated brands.

We are deeply honored to personally handover the plaque of recognition to their Country Operations Manager-GCC, Sir @mudi_karam21 together with the branch managers and head chef of Max’s Qatar.




#JollibeeQatar, through this award, has proven its position as one of the Philippines’ finest in the food industry.

Bringing pride and joy to all Filipinos in Qatar, #Jollibee now maintains six branches all over the country serving their popular #chickenjoy and other Jolli-favorites from back home.

In a quick handing over ceremony at the office of Sunrise Group, we met Ms. Marwa and Mr. Will from the Marketing Department who also reiterated their commitment to support the blog and the community.




They are one of the best contenders in every category where they are nominated and truly deserving of this award being “THE FIRST AND ONLY PINOY RADIO STATION IN QATAR”. With a massive 46.34% of the total votes in this category, only proved that they have a big influence in our daily lives here in Qatar.

It is a privilege to meet our favourite RJs and their very humble Finance and Admin Manager – Ms. Nhelie Rosopa. They were even gracious enough to give us a quick tour of the famous RJ’s booth and introduced us to some of their staff.




From a humble beginning, Flaming Go grabbed the opportunity to go mainstream to serve their loyal customers. Banking on a highly strategic location side by side with other big restaurant brands, they are one of the good places to experience Filipino food here in Qatar.




With a whopping 49.46% share of total votes, our READERS’ CHOICE for BEST INTERNATIONAL OPERATIONS (NON-FOOD) is @flypal-Philippine Airlines Doha.

Receiving the special token of recognition at their office in D-Ring Road is Mr. Marvin Aranzanso – Area Manager|Qatar|Philippine Airlines.

As the Philippines’ flag carrier, it gives us so much pride to give this award to one of the leading companies back home. The #philippineairlines have direct flights from DOHA to MANILA with connecting flights to many domestic destinations in the Philippines, and to more than 50 international destinations in 24 countries.

And to serve the growing Filipino community in Qatar and all those who want to visit the Philippines or other Asian destinations via Manila, PAL-DOHA now operates 2 offices: PAL Doha along D-Ring Road (Al Andalus Compound between The Mall and Lulu Hypermarket); and PAL Doha in Al Mansoura Street (near Carpet Center and Big Diners Restaurant). Experience the Heart of the Filipino… #flyPAL and see the beauty of the Philippines.





Again, we would like to give a big shout out to all our readers, friends and supporters for all the support and inspiration. From the day of inception of this plan to the nomination day, from the days voting and promotion, until the results night… we would like to sincerely offer our appreciation to each and every one of you. To the 28 nominated brands, know that this is just the start of our commitment to support the Filipino Entrepreneurs here in Qatar.
