Staycation in Abu Dhabi: Capital Centre Arjaan by Rotana

Last weekend, I found myself once again inside a bus en route to Abu Dhabi. The capital has been our go-to-destination for short city breaks. This summer alone, we already visited twice! Although the almost 2-hour bus ride became a norm for us, Abu Dhabi never became a mundane destination. The huge emirate has a lot to offer!

Our staycation spot, this time, is in the center of the business district! Sounds ironic, isn't it? But in our home for the weekend - Capital Centre Arjaan by Rotana, business amazingly goes well with leisure.

5th Blogversary Giveaway: Win Friday Brunch at Dusit Thani Dubai

Our little pink blog is now 5 years old! :)

It's been half a decade of blogging in between my full time job, sweet escapes, foodie adventures and whatnots! Half a decade! Can you believe that? I never thought this blogging stint could even last for a year, so this milestone certainly calls for a celebration.

As a way of saying thank you for the support that you have given during the last 5 years, we are giving away a special feast for two courtesy of our friends at Dusit Thani Dubai. 

One lucky winner will win a Friday Brunch for two.

A Quick Guide to Siem Reap: Itinerary, Expenses and Travel Tips

Being the gateway to Angkor Archaeological Park, Siem Reap is a quaint little town in Cambodia that has become a major tourist destination. Travelers set their home base in Siem Reap when exploring the world-renowned Angkot Wat and other famous Khmer temples.

Ed and I spent three days in Siem Reap during our #SweetEscapesinIndochina trip last April 2017. I could say that a 3-day itinerary is perfect for first time visitors. We were able to see the popular temples in the Angkor complex, ventured out to an off-beat attraction, and experienced non-Angkor-related activities!

Here is a basic travel guide for Siem Reap:
