A fellow mum got in touch recently to ask if there were places ‘with water or playgrounds, and lots of shade’, so she could join the kids over the summer months. Thought it might be better to quickly put this piece together as a lot of parents might be looking for the same thing. I […]

The family brunch at The Address Dubai Marina relaunched mid September this year. There was a little bit of noise made during its comeback, though we did not hear anything from the local community forums or mummy circles. After numerous attempts to reach out to their marketing team (unashamedly as well..haha) – I surrendered and […]

Whilst we’ve been to the Address Dubai Marina countless times … oh the many ladies nights in my previous life, brunches, afternoon teas, summer camp for the little ones, massage – literally everything the hotel had to offer, we’ve never stayed there. I mean, we live down the road. Plus, we have access to the […]

This one’s our local hangout. Been here so many times as we live in the area – pre-kids and post-kids 🙂 Now that we’re on Privilee, and that we have two extra people to entertain, we’ve been coming back to The Address a lot, lot more. Whilst it’s not one of the more exciting ‘resort-type’ […]

Few weeks ago I was struggling to find a ladies night spot for Wednesday, so I jumped onto this site and out popped Shades. Ah ha, since when did Shades have a ladies night? 🙂 I emailed them ( as the sceptical person in me does ) to reconfirm, and they repied to say it’s on, woohoo! […]

6 girls. 24 drinks. A fat juicy steak each. Bill came to be about 170AED per person, which includes a random selection of delicious sides to share. Hmm, not too bad ay, for a school night 🙂 So I’ve seen this Ruth’s Chris Steak House on my facebook wall for ages now. It’s not too far […]

How would you like to, spend 3 hours in a classy lounge in a 5-star hotel, have some scones and gourmet sandwiches, catch up with friends, whilst a lady plays live piano in the background, sip on amazingly fragrant tea (that you can get choose from a frikin’ tea box!)? When you’re done with the […]

Don’t drink too much of that pink stuff. It gives you the worst hangover ever the next day. We brought some guests from Singapore there on Thursday night to “check out Dubai nightlife”. It was busy as hell, music was so loud and crowded with expats. Quite different to the last time that we were […]

I apologize for the terrible photos. None of us brought a camera that night. Had to test the camera quality of the new HTC One V. Hmm, not super great for night-shots ay :/ Apologies to Blends, but hang on – I’ve good things to say about this place 🙂 And so just when you […]
