Pizzas with Kids @ Torno Subito, W Hotel The Palm

“It’s very expensive,” she said, as she took away the beautiful plates from our table. Two minutes late and the probability of it ending up on the floor was pretty high. My 2-year old’s lips started to quiver. Oh no. Please don’t make a scene here. Not in Torno Subito! Cellphone out – as my […]

A Family Day Out @ Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel & Villas

I pushed the buggy towards the restaurant counter and smiled at the lady. “It’s that way,” she pointed to the bathrooms behind me.

A Family Day Out @ Ritz Carlton Al Hamra RAK

It was a really hot day yesterday.
