Back in 2015 when Torch caught its first fire, we did consider long and hard if we should join Privilee. Now you must be thinking – what on earth is the relation between a 5-star membership to hotel pools, gyms and kid’s club, and an infamous tower fire in the marina? Well, sadly for us, … More Privilee : Worth it or not ?
An amazing fellow mum collated a list of all the Christmas events in Dubai, and shared it with all of us. With permission, I’m putting this up with a few more additions to it and links added to the events on their respective social media pages.

Hehe just typing the title brings a smile to my face. It’s like when someone pokes you on Facebook and you poke back. Do they even have that function anymore? So guess what, I was nominated by… the lady ( I don’t actually know her name haha! ) behind Blonde on the Move, for a … More #59 Liebster Nomination : Cyber Hug Back!
