Gone are the days when Asian Restaurants are hardly seen in Dubai. This is a remarkable change, going back here after 8 long years. I remember back in 2007, there were only few of them around the city. Today, when I crave for Asian flavors, I get to satisfy my cravings because there are various restaurant to choose from. Just recently, my taste bud had a treat of Asian food, together with DH and some of my colleagues, at the Creekside Japanese Restaurant, located at Sheraton Creekside Hotel, in Diera. This was actually a long planned weekender, which we deserve for being hardworking for the past weeks. It's a fantastic Asian delight on a Thursday, with a wide selection of food from appetizer down to dessert. There's a live cooking station, from which we had most of our main course. The lamb chops were remarkable for me, it was tender and doesn't have stench, delish! But the beef tepanyaki & satay could have been improved. Below are just a few of what was available in the grilling station. Definitely, delicious maki rolls, sashimi and sushi were available. I can only had enough of my favorite maki rolls and yes, we are in
It’s summer in UAE and the sun can crash your head when you hit outdoor. Our two frisky boys are raring for some outdoor play but, it’s not just possible on a scorching weather. I heard of this new indoor playground at city walk and decided to bring them their instead. They were excited when they found about it, and then they were jumping for joy, the moment we stepped into the Mattel Playtown. Mattel Playtown has 5 different attractions. The kids started out with Thomas and friends soft play. And that is because they are a big fan of this famous tank engine. This area is safe for toddlers, it’s multilevel play area that leads to a giant slide. Its baby proofed so you don’t have to worry about bumps and trips. But, little ones under 4 years old might be too small for the giant slide. There was also the Thomas and Friends 4d theater. Our family really had a good time watching Thomas. It was fantastic, my husband and I enjoyed the chugs and tilting, the splash and the bubbles. Our youngest went in again for the second time. Bob the Builder is where the kids enjoyed it
I was tagged along by my husband to an Iftar with his colleagues at Chef's House, Radisson Blu Media City. I am not fasting but with the hype of Iftar Buffet in the city, made me want to indulge my appetite. It was Arabic themed on a Tuesday, and I was a bit thrilled as I was about to take in foods that's definitely new to my taste. Although it's not my first time on an Arabic themed Iftar, I was still not sure if that was the right place to indulge. We were at the restaurant before the buffet opens. The buffet has various selection but it was not huge at all. The chicken salad looks appealing to me, so I started my meal with few of it and tasted good. And then the main course. I had atleast 3 dish, and among'st the three, the fish tagine stood out. I keep going back for more. The pasta was also good but it was spicy. They also have grilling station, from which they grilled tasty chicken. The ouzi was not really a big hit for me. And then came my favorite part, the dessert. The date cake was
I was craving for noodle and dim sum last weekend. I just miss the taste of Chinese food back in KL. I was hoping to eat authentic dim sum at a reasonable price. So walking on the isle of Megamall, I thought of MannHann restaurant. But there was a long queue, so I opted for My Singapore Street Food located onthe 2nd Level, Bridgeway, of SM Megamall. When I walk in, there are quite a number of unoccupied tables. The restaurant is quite big with a little Singaporean vibe.I have to say that I was expecting too much when I walked in for I've been craving for dimsum and noodles for quite few days. There was no queue at the order counter and my food was served in less than 10 minutes. I ordered pork siomai (PhP 115.00) and mee goreng (PhP 110.00). Just a bit info, mee goreng is a spicy fried noodle dish in Malaysia and Singapore made with fried thin yellow noodles with garlic, onion prawn, squid, pork, chili, cabbage, tomatoes, and egg. Don't panic about the spiciness of this noodle, I think they altered the spiciness level according to the Filipino taste. It was just fine and tolerable. The
Practicing a good personal hygiene helps us to feel good and be confident about ourselves. Good personal hygiene includes proper grooming of our bikini area.

My Thoughts: I like that the bikini trimmer has rounded tips for safety purpose. The short handle is not just for control but also made it very handy. And the soft pink color defined it as a girl must have. For the bikini shaver, I really like the 5/8" wide blade. Now I can reach the delicate areas that were out of
I am always looking forward to Saturdays, because it's the only day that I get to spend my whole day with my boys. I super love it even if I am left without a maid. Taking care of my babies from the moment they open their eyes in the morning until they close it at night is just priceless for a working mom like me. Being maid less on a Saturday, sometimes I can't cook healthy food for them, when this happens, I normally call McDonalds or Jollibee for an instant meal. Last satuday night, I ordered (via phone) at Jollibee since my eldest Zoe has been craving for spaghetti. I have placed my order at exactly 7:31 PM and According to them, they will deliver 30 minutes after that call, GUARANTEED! As we wait for our order, I start to feel hungry, I supposed the boys were also hungry as it was already 8:00 PM. My order should be delivered by 8:01. Unfortunately, Jollibee failed to deliver within 30 minutes. At 8:11, that's 10 minutes late, I called their hotline to follow up for my order. The agent that I talked to said she'll check it. After holding on
Part of my job is to visit the construction site, and apart from the usual mire that I encounter during site visits, I also had a nut on staying fresh on site under the hot humid weather. I would always find time sneaking out to freshen up after rounds of inspection before meeting the client or other contractors on site. That's the time where I bring out my so called on site vanity kit. oh...please don't ask me to disclose everything inside it, I'd rather keep it secret but for a glimpse, I make sure I have hand sanitizer and wet wipes inside. I don't like the uneasy feeling down there when i'm out so instead of bringing my regular feminine wash which is bulky I used hypo allergenic wipes. Well, that was before I discover pH Feminine Wipes. I have been using pH Feminine wash for years that is why I am glad that Unilab came up with this convenient and easy to use feminine wipes that I can bring anywhere I go. It definitely gives me the fresh and clean feeling on site and makes me feel great and more confident not just on site but anywhere my

When you seek the very best in kitchen cutlery you want to go with names you can trust – JA Henckels knives and cutlery have been around since 1895 and are said to represent the best in German steel design. Other top names include handcrafted Shun Japanese cutlery which is made in the tradition of samurai swords. There is a lot to learn when you wish to make an investment in professional quality cutlery for home use and one of the best ways to learn is by surfing the web.

While the manufacturers’ websites are very helpful it’s always important to keep in mind the fact that they are geared toward convincing you their brand is the best – therefore you’ll want to look at other sites for reviews and ratings.

Everyone will grow old and that’s a fact. Some wealthy people might consider a stem cell procedure to regenerate their immune system and make them feel better and younger but still, getting on years is really inevitable. Anyone who has an old gray mare at home knows how important it is to have home care equipment for elderly. My grandma is living an old ripe age of 85 and has turned over the hill. Her walking difficulties are a cross to bear and she’s in a real pickle. That is why we want to give her a rollator to give her the luxury of strolling around. So when a close friend told me about Parent Giving store i become ardently interested so I immediately check their website. I was a bit stunned upon checking their website as they have almost everything you need in care giving your elderly parents. They are probably a one stop shop store for your care giving needs. From simple skin care to bath safety, bedding, medical supplies, mobility devices and so fort, name it then you grab it from their store. Another thing is that, they are not only providing products for senior care, they also provide care management service
Yesterday baby Zian turned 1 month old. In celebration, I prepared some food for “merienda” and invited my cousins over as well as our aunt who’s in town for a one month vacation from Italy. I was suppose to ask my sister to go out and buy a cake for the little one, but since she was also busy helping me prepare the food she suggested to order via Goldilocks delivery hotline instead. So I dialled 888-1-999 and placed my order at around 3:00 pm, one round size black forest cake and a crema de fruta. Delivery time was 45 minutes to one hour as informed by the agent. Just before our visitors arrived and while waiting for our order, we have arranged the table. Few minutes later, the visitors arrived. I checked the time and it’s been an hour and a forty five minutes since I placed my order so I decided to follow up. After little verification by the agent, it looks like my order was not recorded in their system. I was even asked by the agent if I am sure I have placed an order at their delivery hotline, I answered I would have not called
Recently our less than one month old baby had mild colds. Actually the “kuya” (elder brother) pass it to him since he loves kissing his little brother. That’s really so sweet of him and I soo love seeing him kiss the brother. I really hate to see him sneezing and the nasal congestion does not only disturb him but me as well. He fussy the whole night so we brought him to our family paediatrician for check up and treatment the following day. The doctor prescribed Sterimar for the nasal congestion and she assured us that it is safe for use for newborns. So upon reaching home I immediately gave our baby a dose of Sterimar on both nostrils and in few minutes, it loosens the mucus and aspirated it and then he was relieved. I continue to give him a dose once his nose is congested and it was really effective. In just two days the colds was gone. Sterimar is a nasal cleanser ideal and safe for ages 0 to 3 years. It’s an isotonic sea water spray that efficiently decongests and cleanses the nasal passage without harming the nasal mucosa. It is easy to spray to babies
Recently I started to potty train our little tot since his brother is coming last week of this month I wanted to make him diaper free during the day. Last week we bought this 4 in 1 potty trainer by Gerbo at the Baby Company. Yes you read it right, it’s 4 in 1 potty trainer for only PHP330.00. Gerbo potty trainer can be use as a chair, can be converted into a step stool, full size potty and the training seat can fit into adult size toilet seat. It is made of light weight but durable plastic material and super easy to clean. The potty trainer can hold up to 50 LBS or 22.7 KG so it’s ideal for long term use. It comes in four different colors, blue, pink, green and yellow. I chose the blue for my little boy. My seventeen months old son is oh his first week of the potty training and so far, the tot is showing positive response with the training. It’s really a challenge not only for the tot but for the whole family. We need lots of patience and understanding to be able to be successful in this thing. I hope
With the fervent heat of sun this summer definitely sunglasses is a must have so we could protect our eyes from the harmful UV rays. This summer 2012, a new sunglass has been added to my collection. The mail man delivered it to our doorstep yesterday afternoon. I am so glad to get hold of a gorgeous sunglass from Firmoo. It’s a full framed wrap around sunglasses made of quality materials which fits my face impeccably. And because it fits my face well, I will surely get 100% eye protection against the harmful UV rays. I love the riveting style, which is perfect for fashion hearted people. Another thing which I love the most is the color of the frame. I used to have black and brown frames; I must say the frame color is unique and engrossing which matches the decorative pattern of the glasses arms. I just love it! Thank you Firmoo for this gorgeous and sexy eye wear!
