An Italian evening brunch @ Al Grissino, DIFC

It’s been awhile since we’ve gone to brunch with friends. Out came the handy Entertainer app and ‘Al Grissino’ popped up. I jumped onto social media to see if anyone else has been and saw this from fellow blogger Foodie with Suitcase , and decided – yep, we’re going.

Our dinner date at Atelier M

I don’t know why the few random times that we’ve been Atelier M, it was relatively quiet. The food is very reasonably priced and very tasty, add in sweeping views of the marina if you opt to sit on the terrace, or pick a spot indoors  in its spacious restaurant – it’s perfect for a […]

Sparkle in the Sand @ The Beach House, Anantara The Palm

Not the best photo ay. Sorry! It’s actually a really beautiful beach bar, and I love the hotel. Makes me feel like I’m back in South East Asia again 🙂 Definitely in our “to-stay” list! So last night we thought we’ll check out the new ladies night, “Sparkle in the Sand.” Saw Ah Lan’s post […]
