The Food Byte: Taste of Wafi '15, Dubai

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

I have a crazy sweet tooth. I will happily make the most complicated desserts than cook savory dishes. While I love a serving of chocolate mousse, I appreciate cafes and restaurants that have a unique selection of desserts.

Dubai has its fair share of food tasting/sampling events and I happened to pay one a visit recently. A food bazaar that celebrates culinary culture, the Taste of Wafi will woo all the foodies. It also happens to be a dessert lovers heaven.

If you are like me, you tend to change your beauty routine in the summer season. Dubai's unforgiving summer heat is a good reason to go easy on the makeup you use and also tweak your skincare to some extent.

To help you get through summer, I have a goodie bag that's apt for the season. Think of innovative sunscreens to moisturizers and makeup from brands such as Nivea, Max Factor, Bioderma, Pond's, Rimmel and more!

The Food Byte: Cinco De Mayo at Rosa Mexicano, Dubai

Saturday, May 9, 2015

I visited Rosa Mexicano last year and the first thing that my friends and I ordered was the Guacamole with tortilla chips and salsa. We went on to order other items off the menu but the appetizer turned out to be everyone's favorite. I did visit it again and surely the Guacamole made its way to our table.

Fast forward to 2015. I was invited to be part of the Cinco de Mayo celebrations at the Rosa Mexicano restaurant at Dubai Mall.  I hopped and skipped my way to the venue (I was thinking about the Guacamole) and was welcomed by mariachis and a true Mexican vibe.
