Posh Breakfast @ The Hamptons Cafe, Jumeirah

I never thought I’ll put the words posh and breakfast for a blog title.  Unless Victoria and David were dining here in Dubai. But when the cost of the bags at the table next to us is worth more than twice of our second-hand Ford Escape, you just gotta use those words. Oh, and yes, the […]

Healthy Breakfast Options @ Gourmet by Kcal, Le Meridien Mina Seyahi

Since July last year, we’ve been to Gourmet by Kcal numerous times. Citispi organises a breakfast morning for mums with babies, or those who are expecting ( Thanks for that 😉 ) With every breakfast order, you get a complimentary tea/coffee.

Romania : Where we stayed : Intercontinental Hotel Bucharest

We spent the first two nights of our stay in Romania, in the heart of the city – Bucharest. We figured two nights would do it justice, before we went on our road-trip to the outskirts towards Brasov. Extremely glad that we started our Romanian holiday in Intercontinental Hotel Bucharest – situated just a 10-minute […]

First Impressions @ Breeze Beach Grill, Club Vista Mare Dubai

I loved the atmosphere at Club Vista Mare so much that I told G we should go and check it out on Friday. So off we went to the Palm as a family, parked the car and pushed the little munchkin along the boardwalk. Busy on a weekend, we passed by The Tap House (where […]

A drop-in for lunch @ The Tap House, Club Vista Mare Dubai

I didn’t get on a good start with The Tap House. When the strip of new restaurants launched in front of Tiara Residences two months or so ago, I went on my handy app to see if any of them have decided to offer a 241. Tap House was there. Ha, time to check it out […]

Almost like a staycation : Pool Day @ Jumeirah Zabeel Saray

So after looking around for flights, we decided to stay put in Dubai this long weekend. FOMO at its highest level (I haven’t been on a proper holiday for a very-long-time…. moan, moan, moan), we started browsing through the many apps and promos to see what we could possible use. Isme popped up. Thought we’ll […]

A good Thursday night-out @ Trader Vic’s Souk Madinat Jumeirah

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) […]
