Celebrating International Friendship Day at Zen The Spa

Zen The Spa in Al Ghurair Rayhaan Rotana

Happy International Friendship Day everyone! Who did you celebrate your friendship day with?

I'm not sure if I have mentioned it at all but I love bringing my roommies with me whenever I attend events. They are always one of my guests or 'plus one' - we are a package and I make sure that they enjoy what I get too. And if I can actually bring all four of them, I would!

Bahraini cuisine is just one of them.

Many of my readers have been asking for more posts about my calligraphy and brush lettering stash - a hobby that I do on weekends or whenever creativity knocks on my door. You might have seen my post last year but just to follow up as I have already collected items, I found a few cheaper options (yet again) where you can buy stuffs for word art in and out of Dubai.
