My Birthday Breakfast in Burj Al Arab


Smoked salmon with crème Fraiche and caviar. Fine cheeses with date chutney. Assorted homemade viennoiseries. These are only some of the food that made up the not-so-ordinary breakfast I devoured in Burj Al Arab's Sahn Eddar. It was a morning meal that I truly wouldn't deserve if not for my birthday!

Premier Inn: Budget Stay in Dubai with a Passport to Discounts


Apologies for the month-long silence on this blog. Once in a while, I do some blogger detox to focus on more important things in life; priceless things like spending time with my family. :)

Last month, my parents visited me in my second home - Dubai - for the third time. This time, I wanted them to experience the finer things this city can offer. But you know me, I always find ways to see/eat/do more while spending less, and I have a new discovery! It's the Premier Inn Passport!

A Repeat Stay at Danat Jebel Dhanna Resort


During the recent holiday, Ed and I ventured out to one of the most exotic places in the United Arab Emirates. We traveled to Sir Bani Yas - a natural island with a magnificent wildlife reserve situated miles away from the capital of the UAE.

Due to the distant location and the fact that we had to take two exhausting bus rides to reach Sir Bani Yas Island boat jetty terminal, we decided to rest for a while and spend a night somewhere close by. The good news is that our favorite hideaway - Danat Jebel Dhanna Resort - is the nearest accommodation we can find.

If you can remember, we have stayed at this wonderful 5-star property two years ago. Hence, I wouldn't deny that I was glad, or shall I say relieved, to see a familiar place less than 20 km away from the jetty when I looked into Google maps.

Dinner and Show in Maison Rouge Dubai


Maison Rouge. Hearing the restaurant's name for the first time roused my curiosity. It sounded like the famous musical film, and yes, the iconic cabaret in Paris. I have never seen anything like it in Dubai and I wondered how will this unique dinner and show concept fit-in in this cosmopolitan yet conservative city.

So, a few weeks back, on a Thursday night, my curiosity led me (with Ed and my friends) to Conrad Hotel in the Trade Centre area to see what Maison Rouge is all about.

Adventures in Motiongate Dubai


I have a confession to make. I am in my mid-thirties but I still love going to theme parks! I don't believe that these places are made just for the kids. These were also built for us - adults - to get back in touch with our inner child from time to time!

Do you agree? :)

Here in the UAE, we are lucky to have plenty of good theme parks to choose from. One of our favorites is Motiongate Dubai.

A Polynesian-themed Staycation in Lapita Hotel Dubai


Having a taste of Lapita Hotel's Polynesian hospitality during a Daycation Brunch last year, Ed and I were keen on going back for a proper staycation. We super love the island vibe that drifted us away from the desert to the tropics in an instant. So a few months later, we found ourselves back in Lapita for Ed's birthday. The hotel stay + park access package was a no-brainer for us who crave for a little R&R plus a whole lot of adventure on the side.
