The big 40. Not me – not yet anyways, hee hee. I was looking for a spot for the husband’s birthday do, and it was going to have to be karaoke. A bit of googling and Maiden Shanghai popped up as one of the few places in Dubai that has a karaoke room. Well, one […]

Chez Charles Friday Brunch @ Playa Nomade Dubai

You wouldn’t expect to sit outdoors at the end of May by the pool for brunch. The kids were quite happy to play by the pool and eat off the low tables without being restrained to a chair, which made it a lot more comfortable for us grown-ups as well. I guess that’s what made […]
