Iftar at Entre-Nous Restaurant

A few days before I was scheduled to give birth last month, Hubby and I went to Novotel Dubai World Trade Centre to attend the Iftar Preview at Entre-Nous Restaurant.
The special pre-Ramadan buffet prepared by Chef Jean Ballouz and his team of chefs offered a wide selection ranging from authentic Arabic, Mediterranean and a variety of international dishes. Cold and hot mezzeh, traditional Ramadan sweets and beverages, Arabic desserts, and a live cooking station were also available. 
And of course, the star of any Iftar, the lamb ouzi, was present...much to Hubby's delight.
Needless to say, we enjoyed every bite of each dish we tried...and I'm sure Baby M was equally satisfied, judging from the way he was moving around so much in my tummy that night 

The spacious restaurant has tables and areas for families and friends. So whatever the number of people in your group, you can be sure to be seated comfortably.
This delicious buffet can be enjoyed at Dhs139 per person from sunset to 11pm during Ramadan. Children under 12 years old receive 50% discount, and group booking discounts apply.  You can also enjoy this Iftar experience for only Dhs95 (for 1 person) or Dhs185 (for 2 people) by downloading the coupon here.
Disclaimer: We were invited to the Iftar Preview. However, all views and opinions are my own.

My 40th Birthday and Baby Gender Reveal at Jollibee Burjuman

Ever since I attended a birthday party at Jollibee in the Philippines many (many, many) years ago, I knew I wanted to have one as well. No, not for my future kids (because I was still single then), but for me. I didn’t care if others might think it would be “too childish” or “not appropriate” because I was way past being a child. I wanted to have a birthday at Jollibee. So you can imagine my delight when they opened the franchise here and put up branches that could hold parties.

Meeting Jeff Kinney at the Dubai Lit Fest

The past weekend kicked off the 11th Annual Emirates Airline Festival of Literature, and fortunately, my family and I had the chance to attend one of the sessions at the InterContinental Hotel Dubai Festival City. Even though it was already sold out, one of my good friends managed to give us tickets for Jeff Kinney’s session. Yup, he’s the famous author behind the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. I didn’t tell my daughters where we going that evening because I wanted it to be a surprise. It was only when we were standing and waiting in the queue to enter the hall when they finally asked why we were there and I told them. Caila loves the Wimpy Kid books and Jeff Kinney is her favourite author, so you can guess she was ecstatic with my news. She actually had to ask me twice if she would really get to see the bestselling author.

Sophie's Happy Day

Yesterday, Hubby took Caila to an event she won through Ejunior. Unfortunately, the invitation/prize was for 1 kid and 1 adult only. So just to help Sophie from feeling bad and left out, I told her I would take her to Sparky’s, Al Ghurair so that she could ice skate. She’s been wanting to go ice skating for a long time (the last time was August last year at The Galleria Ice Rink) so you can bet she was very excited.

7 Reasons Why You Should Book Your Next Vacation to Taiwan

I admit it has never crossed my mind to ever visit Taiwan. If you asked me before which places I would want to go to, I’d automatically name several countries in Europe and maybe a couple in Asia. But Taiwan? Never! That is until I went to Musafir.com’s event #TaipeiNowBoarding last month where they opened my eyes to this amazing country and made me want to book my next vacation there.

Anniversary Dinner at Il Ristorante – Niko Romito, The Bvlgari Resort

Since Hubby works in the construction industry, he often proudly points out the projects he worked/is working on whenever we pass by them. I’ve only entered a couple, but most of them we just admire from afar.

For our 10th wedding anniversary this year, Hubby booked us in Il Ristorante – Niko Romito which is located at one of his past projects. I remember the countless days he had stressing over almost everything when he was working on The Bvlgari Resort. Well, he always stresses over all the projects he works on ☺ But what probably made this different was it’s a luxury property and the demands were great, so the stress level was really high. Which is also the reason why he was particularly proud of this one.

The Perfect Moist and Delicious Banana Bread

I can just picture some of you raising your eyebrows upon reading the title of this post (“Perfect?” Really?!). Well, even I’m a bit doubtful because this is the only banana bread recipe I’ve tried. But since I’d like to believe my eldest daughter and colleague when they both raved to me how great it was, I’ll keep my stand and say this recipe makes the Perfect Moist and Delicious Banana Bread
