The big TWO NINE.

October 22, 2012
I don’t know about you but I really like celebrating my birthday with my friends. I like to party on my birthday, that’s the one day in a year that I would really love to go on the dancefloor and just dance until my feet hurts. I am not into the lame dinner under the stars and the whatnots, that’s not a celebration for me. A successful birthday celebration for me is to see my friends doing some cr

Dubai: Zheng He’s at Mina A Salam Hotel

January 17, 2012
Nope, not the Admiral in China but the Chinese restaurant in Mina A Salam hotel. Still in lieu with the usage of my Entertainer Fine Dining vouchers. Well, I must say, that it was a big disappointment – the restaurant itself. Although what they lacked in the quality of food, the ambiance surely made up for it. Situated alongside the man-made river of Madinat property and the Burj Al Arab in a very close proxi

Dubai: Koubba Bar at Al Qasr Hotel

January 16, 2012
After the very filling dinner at Al Hambra, we then went to the bar inside the same Al Qasr Hotel called Koubba Bar. I’ve been meaning to bring the boyfriend there for a long time but never had the chance.

The atmosphere was amazing with the Burj Al Arab as your view and the perfect weathe

I don’t really know why we haven’t been going to this hotel when in fact it boasts a good number of restaurants and bars with impeccable service each. And with the view as good as the below, who wouldn&

The weekend that was….

May 17, 2008
So, the very very long weekend came into existence. Solely for me. Haha! Started off as a not a very productive Wednesday night as I just stayed in, did the laundry, bla bla bla – in short, very domesticated. Come Thursday afternoon, went over to Monmon’s to take that trip going to the Greens. Since the itinerary for the evening is to invade that side of Dubai for the night, Monmon offered her place for
