When I was last in Dubai I kept hearing and reading reviews of a Circle cafe. The reviews raved about the lovely interior and really distinguished food. One morning as we were driving down Jumeirah Road we saw Circle Cafe and decided to stop for breakfast.
Last time I was in Dubai I wanted to see the Gift ATM that sells gifts 24 hours in S*uce Gifts shop. The address said ‘Wasl Square’ a place I’ve never been before but when I did go I kept going back. Wasl Square is a cosey modern residential project located at the intersection of […]
For a while now I kept hearing raving reviews about a Jones the Grocer, an Australian franchise restaurant/deli/gourmet grocery shop that’s recently opened up in Dubai. I’ve seen pictures and read the reviews and could tell it was an excellent popular place that I’d love to visit. Therefore when I was in Dubai I made […]
There is something magical about Arabian calligraphy, I’ve always stopped and admired a beautifully written letter in Arabic for as long as I could remember, and there are many different fonts, each spectacular in it’s own way. When I was last in Dubai I was walking around in Dubai Mall when I saw a spectacular […]
One of two movies I really wanted to watch was The Heat, starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. It was out in June, and I waited for it to arrive to the cinemas in Kuwait all summer long but that didn’t happen because it was banned along with The Internship. Luckily both comedy movies weren’t […]
Whenever I am in Dubai I make sure to visit Gallery Lafayette’s home section and spend a few hours lost between the quirky merchandise they have on display. One particular section that I adore is a little corner with trendy Arabian and Middle Eastern furniture and home accessories with a modern twist. This past visit […]
I’ve seen the trailer for this movie a while back and I knew it was one movie I really wanted to watch. Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are two salesmen who lose their jobs and they look everywhere but can only, and miraculously, secure an internship at the one and only Google. Having to compete […]
For the past Eid holiday I’ve been to Dubai for a miniature summer break and change of scenery. One of the restaurants I look forward to dining in when in Dubai is Vapiano. I’m not sure where the franchise
I was walking in the souk district in the Avenues when I noticed a new cafe had opened up. When I got closer, I realised it was Al Nassma Cafe. Al Nassma is a well known chocolate brand from Dubai and what makes it special is that their fine chocolates are made with camel milk, which […]
the other day I stumbled along a new booth in the P2bk village that sold cute accessories. The name of the business is “Burga’a & Agal” and they came all the way from Dubai, UAE to participate in the P2bk exhibition and I loved what they had in display. The traditional
For the past year all I’ve been hearing from people who frequent Dubai was Zaroob and Zaroob. I’ve seen the pictures and I liked what I saw, a middle eastern eatery so funky you can spend hours looking at the different decor details and yet discover something new.
The reputation of this book has made it all the way to Kuwait. The books name has always been in the back of my mind for some reason, only when news of it being banned earlier this year did I really cement its title in my
I’ve never been to NYC before so I haven’t tried Magnolia Bakery’s cupcakes in the states. I have however allowed myself to indulge -err or over indulge- in them ever since I found out they are being sold in Bloomingdale’s Dubai Mall.
I never thought it would be possible, to actually order and taste a pizza in the Gulf region that is as good as ones served in Italy. Until i tried Armani Café Pizza in Dubai that
In one of my recent trips to Dubai, i was walking in Dubai Mall just outside the Reel Cinema when i spotted this little
If there was a rule saying ur allowed to ride a plane out of Q8 only once a year (god forbid!), then this time of year is definitely it… I love my country of course and i love our celebrations… But i hate the way people celebrate it! I have one of two choices, […]
