About this blog
Lil One Of The Ashes is an online publication covering restaurants, hotels and experiences within the UAE and beyond.
We write for families in mind – where to eat, swim and play – with, or without the little ones in tow – scattered with tips on how to enjoy the luxuries that Dubai has to offer without breaking your wallet.
As parents – we know that it is a big task to actually bring the family out. Therefore, we believe in the motto ” Know before you go. ” We write with the aim to explain to you what to expect when you actually go to a venue. Things that parents think about – where do we park? How much does it cost? Are there any deals? Should we bring the kids? Is there a kids play area?
Please note that where reviews have been done as part of an invitation or is sponsored, I would clearly state it as so.
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 🙂
