All of us may agree that the UAE has undergone the "delivery revolution" and is an evolution from the times when everything was ordered in stores for take-out or so we call "to go". And unlike in most places in the world, here you can have almost anything delivered at your doorsteps, food, beverage, a car battery, new tires, your laundry, groceries (at a minimum cost) and even professional services like party hosts and entertainers via phone or online. Try ordering a clown; you’ll be amazed that this is possible!

Ramadan 2017 - Tried and Tested Iftar Menus That Won't Hurt Your Pocket


It's Ramadan season once again and you know what this means: endless buffet awaits us when the sun goes down (yay for buffet girls and boys!). Last year, I have tried a few restaurants for Iftar and this year, I have experienced dining at new restaurants within hotel facilities where I have gotten a lot of invitations to try what they have been offering in their menu. Lamb Ouzi and Arabic starters are  the buffet staples but this year, I guess I already met the mouttabal that literally took my heart away (sadly, it's not included on this list!).

You will also be surprised to know the buffet menu that I have tried are actually budget friendly, which basically fits what I have been sharing for the longest time.  So get your pen and paper, here's a summary of my tried and tested Iftar menus in Dubai that will not hurt your pocket!

Who would've thought that we have this kind of view in the UAE?
Guess who's back online? Yes, it's me! And it's been a while since I have uploaded something interesting here. If you've been following my updates on IG, you will know how much of a busy bee I am on weekdays. I am still exploring a lot of things in aviation (yes, I've shifted industries but doing the same function) and I guess I will enjoy it here.

How To Get (Legally) HIGH - In Dubai!


And just before I get tons of email to take this post down, let me tell you one thing: IT IS NOT WHAT YOU THINK IT IS. First and foremost, Dubai has zero tolerance for illegal drugs - any form of use or distribution of illegal drugs in the UAE is a criminal offense and is punishable by law.

So rather than taking the risk of getting in jail or worst deported, I have listed below my over-the-top (like literally) experiences of how I tasted the Dubai high life without getting caught!


How to Experience the Best of Dubai - On A Budget!

Heritage House - Al Fahidi District Dubai
That's me, going around Dubai on a budget.

Okay so I live here, and for me, a budget experience in Dubai is very different to a tourist’s. Heading to friends for dinner certainly takes the sting out of a pricey restaurant cheque, and taking a long drive with grammer friends – in their cars – into the desert or anywhere off the beaten path is an inexpensive way to relax. But for visitors flying into the city, Dubai can appear very expensive indeed. Fear not, there are tons of ways to make the most out of your trip to this magnificent city without breaking the bank, here are my top tips in experiencing Dubai on a budget!

Trying Out Famous Dave's In Abu Dhabi Mall

I've been out and about lately and busy doing sooo many things (hint: I went back to my home country for a bestie's wedding last week and now planning another one for another bestie!)! With all these things coming, I am hopeful and excited for greater things but of course I will keep my readers posted *wink*.  Since last month, events and surprises came pouring in that I can't even touch my blog anymore. Luckily, I had the spare time to do one today and I promise, you'll be getting more of my previous eating sprees from different parts of the UAE (yes, I sometimes go out of Dubai just to eat!).

One of those I have tried was in Abu Dhabi - the restaurant is called Famous Dave's located in Abu Dhabi Mall.
