The little girl was gifted an All Blacks jersey for her 1st birthday. What a lucky monkey. Even G and I don’t have one (the authentic ones cost a bomb!) 🙂 So, when the Lions tour was on, we knew we had to go out and watch the game with the family. I had no … More Lazy Weekend Breakfast @ Links, Address Montgomerie
You’ve seen those lagoon pools. You’ve always wanted to swim in them. But you don’t want to break the bank and stay overnight. Alternative? Do a daycation at Anantara the Palm. Also called their Swim, Eat and Relax deal – you pay 299 AED for a 3-course gourmet meal at The Beach House (indoors – … More Swim, Eat and Relax @ Anantara The Palm
We almost didn’t make it. Schoolnights and driving up Sheikh Zayed Road never really went hand in hand, but I managed to convince G that if the food was as good as their Friday Brunch (click here), then it should be worth it! So off we went to Park Regis Kris Kin in Bur Dubai … More A Thai-Chinese Night @ Kris With a View Dubai

Get into the lifts, walk out onto a wooden terrace with a pool that is overlooking the fountains and the Dubai Mall. Live DJ … More Rooftop Brunch @ The Burj Club Dubai : Pool access included !

So few weeks ago when a friend was organising his birthday brunch, I thought I’ll put my hand up and … More Moroccan Brunch @ Al Maeda, Doubletree Hilton JBR Dubai
I’m happy to say that we’ve found a reasonably priced yum cha experience, close enough to what I’ll call authentic. Still not perfect…. but close enough. Some restaurants try to do its best, but without the pork factor, you can never really bring out the authenticity of yum cha. That’s me looking at a lot … More Authentic Yum Cha found in Dubai @ Peacock Restaurant, Sheraton JBR
Saturdays are usually spent chilling at home. Recovering from the night after for some, doing your weekly groceries or maybe, catching up with friends at a laid-back brunch. La Cantine introduced just that few weeks back, as noted in their press release – to “indulge in the delights of a real Parisian bedroom.” So when … More A Parisian Brunch “Reveil” @ La Cantine Du Faubourg Dubai
We’ve been to Trader Vic’s many times in the past over various occasions – casual dinner with friends, lunch on a cool afternoon with guests, or just for a few drinks. So why did it take me so long to decide on this place, when I was hunting down a venue for a very (very very) … More A good Thursday night-out @ Trader Vic’s Souk Madinat Jumeirah
