Whenever I feel down and low, one of the most effective stress-buster for me is shopping. I believe it also works for you. I was out last Thursday to check the Call it Spring wedge which has been on my wish list but sad to say, they don’t have my size. So I got an office shoes instead. ( Shoes on a separate post)

Passing by a Mango shop, I went gaga over the big SALE sign, and so definitely I went in. Imagine the energetic women all over the shop.

Here’s what I got:

 Mango ethnic printed blouse. I love the soft material and print on this one… and it fitted well on me… more love

 Retro style blouse w/ a tie shirt collar, I was attracted with the collar and retro print, though I don’t know yet what to pair it with.

Mango bowling bag – comes in 3 colors. I played safe, went for the off white.

Aren’t they lovely? Can’t wait to wear them all.

I’ve been craving for chicken bbq lately and I can’t think of any place that has one other than Chowking at the back of Crowne Plaza Hamdan. So last weekend we decided to try theirs.

 For starter we’ve ordered ???… I’m sorry I totally forgot the name. 

My Chowking chicken bbq. I love it swear!!!

And of course hubby’s Nasi Goreng.

Indeed a great food they have but for the service, let’s just say it’s not worth leaving a tip.

Here’s the rating (5 is the highest, 1 is the lowest)

Food:  4 (no doubt their food is yummy)

Ambiance: 2 (the place is messy and the tables and chairs are a bit narrow you can’t move freely)

Quantity: 5

Dirhams power: 79.00 Dhs /900.00 Php

I’ve been super duper busy lately, aside from my fulltime job w/ only 1 day off I’m up to something that I can’t tell you guys right now but I will soon. I’m really excited about this venture because this would be my 1st time ever! Anyway 2 days ago was our anniversary as bf/gf and hubby was so sweet he brought me flowers.

Up to the last minute we can’t decide where to dine. We really wanted to go to CuiSine at Fairmont hotel but that would be too far from our place. I was searching for any Japanese or Chinese cuisine nearby but all I know was either Taiki or Chinoy Haven in Al Ain palace. And so we ended up in Chinoy Haven since It was hubby’s 1st time on that resto.

For starter we have stir fry noodles w/ vegetable.

We have calamari and so far it’s the best dipping I had.

We also ordered sisig.

Lastly our mixed fried rice

My outfit for the day

What’s good about the resto was they also have live entertainment where you can request you’re fave love songs. And their food wasn’t that expensive. Indeed a great evening and happy anniversary to my hubby – u r the best!

 Ratings: 1 to 5 (5 is the highest)

 Food: 4 Quantity: 4

Ambiance: 3.5

Peso power: 4 (200 AED is enough for 2 persons)

It’s been weeks now of thinking and searching, and still I’m confused. I can’t decide which one I’m going to take. I’m not a professional but I just want to have a reliable one for my blog, and of course for our trips. For months, I’ve been shooting from my hubby’s I phone or my old sony camera but I’m not satisfied with it.

 Canon 1000D or

 Nikon 3100D

 Any opinion or suggestion? I just can’t make up my mind…

There’s a very affordable restaurant in Dubai with a dish I wouldn’t want to miss every time I visit there. My bff doesn’t agree with me on this since they’re not a big fan of fried duck. Sabihin mang mababa ang kaligayahan ko… ilove it to pieces.

Here’s my fried duck:

Looks delicious to me yummm! Instead with full rice I opted for half rice and noodles.

Hubby got his combo chicken pepper and cashew chicken, of course w/ half rice and half noodles.

Yesterday was our 3rd wedding monthsary and we just can’t decide where to dine. Since both of us love to eat anything yummy we decided to try the Lebanese Mill Restaurant, located at 9th st., infront of starbucks and beside eva dolce.

While waiting for our food they gave a platter of vegetables, hummus, garlic sauce, olives and of course Arabic bread. I love their pickles and so ate all of it w/out sharing it to hubby… hehehe

For the main dish we ordered…

Vegetable platter

Grilled chicken wings w/ garlic sauce & fries on the sides.

Hubby had Grilled kabab.

The food was great and very affordable. I couldn’t ask for more. For dessert, I took home a blue berry cheesecake from Eva Dolce.

My piece of cake from eva dolce --- this is the best blueberry I had so far.

It’s been a long time since I blogged on our monthsary dinners. It’s not that hubby doesn’t spoil me anymore... hehehe! We just dined at the same restaurants that I already featured before. So for 2nd wedding monthsary, we tried Beijing Restaurant at the back of Gold Souk, Madinat Zayed.

I heard from my officemate that they really have an amazing sizzling eggplant that we don’t find in our fave Chinese resto. We ordered their braised chicken in hotpot and of course the famous sizzling eggplant.

Sizzling eggplant (29.00 Dhs or approx. 290.00 Php)

Braise chicken in hotpot (35.00 Dhs/ approx. 350.00 Php) Sorry I wasn’t able to take pictures of our special friend rice & the drinks.

The food was great. We really did enjoy our sizzling eggplant but if we were to rate on their services, I don’t think I wanna go back there. We’ve waited for 15 mins or more for our sizzling eggplant and another 5 mins for the braised chicken and another buzz to the server for our special mix rice. It’s really that bad for me to decide not to go back.
