The Roast by Bubbalicious @ Mina’s Kitchen, Westin Mina Seyahi

Sunday Roast has always, from what I gather (and please forgive me if I am wrong) – a British thing. Whilst we both grew up in British colonised countries, we have never been a huge fan of just having roast beef and yorkshire puddings (again, please forgive me for saying this). I actually try my […]

Where to go to for babycinos in Dubai

With the toddlers growing up, it also means the extra little expense as they want to “drink coffee” like mummy. I don’t like paying for frothy milk with chocolate sprinkles on top. After many breakfast and coffee dates with the little ones, here’s my personal round up of where I like to bring the toddlers […]

We’ve been to Oeno once, and decided to return after a friend recommended it for a nice evening out. They had all these deals happening on a Thursday – and since it was a 3 minute taxi ride from our place (8, if the tram was passing….), we made some plans to meet friends over […]

Madame Butterfly Ladies Night @ China Grill Dubai

Ooooo, I’m probably going to step on a few toes for this but I’ll write this anyways. Times like this I wish there were more blogs on ladies nights so we could’ve avoided last night. So, we were planning to meet up for a ladies night and I got quite frustrated trying to find a […]

Dinner at The Hunter’s @ Westin, Mina Seyahi

Didn’t do the food justice with my lousy camera skills. Sorry! ๐Ÿ˜‰ A girl friend was in town and I hadn’t planned anything. Opened up the HSBC Ent Book and thought I’ll choose something that’s nearby and nice. Saw the Hunters Room & Grill and thought – why not? I hadn’t been to the Westin […]
