About this blog
Lil One Of The Ashes started of in 2012, as a journal of all the many restaurants, hotels and events that we were going to, scattered with tips on how to enjoy the luxuries that Dubai had to offer without breaking your wallet.
It then grew to become a little bit more than that.
I still write, when I find a nice new place to eat at, a good day spent at a pool, a staycation worth sharing about.
I also work with venues, covering new promotions – things that I feel is worth sharing with my readers. Please note that where reviews have been done as part of an invitation or is sponsored, I would clearly state it as so.
For the most part, reviews have been done anonymously, and at our own cost – where I have found a good deal and organised a gathering with friends and family to share the experience – good and bad 🙂
It is also a way for us to thank the people who work long hard hours to make your meal more enjoyable, your spa experience special, your hotel stay memorable. Salute, to all in the hospitality industry.
Who am I
Originally from the home of the orang utans (where the world’s best food is found), having spent the latter part of my life in the land down under, we (husband and I) moved to Dubai back in 2012.
We both love chinese and japanese food, and our social life is planned generally around deals, though we do allow for the occasional splurge. I love looking for new deals, organising get-togethers and events, and writing about the experience. Note that I do not work in the hospitality or journalism sector so please excuse my english if it’s not up to par.
We also have 3 little ones, so my write-ups since 2016 is based on us exploring the UAE and abroad through the eyes of parents, with occasional rants of mommyhood 🙂
