The Food Byte: Dum Dum Donutterie Opens Shop In Dubai, UAE

Sunday, March 27, 2016

I love doughnuts. You don't get it. I was born with a sweet tooth, and I'm not afraid to use it. Doughnuts have been a childhood favorite. I can't remember the number of times I had the notorious chocolate glazed doughnut for lunch at school. Can a doughnut be notorious? In my books, yes. They were fried, had oodles and oodles of sugar and chocolate but still tasted so good! I bet they taste the same to date but I'm not touching them.

Desserts have seen a new light of the day- we've got fancy cupcakes, cake pops, cronuts, truffles and even ice-cream sandwiches which don't resemble anything like the traditional ones we're familiar with. Nobody's complaining. While I love macarons, doughnuts will have a special place in my heart. I mean, even Homer Simpson couldn't shut his gob when it came to the sugary fried dough with a hole.

In my opinion, the best desserts come from the Queen's country, the UK. I might be biased here but I haven't tasted a Creme Brulee so good as I did when back in London. The melt-in-your mouth, cooked to perfection custard dessert is pure perfection. And being a tea person, I'm quite picky when it comes to the kind I drink. Fortnum and Mason is my favorite tea place in the world, period. And where does it originate from? Yep, you got that right. And there's something new that we have in Dubai- the famous Dum Dum Donutterie!


Puma: Redefining Sports Style

Saturday, March 12, 2016

For as long as I can remember, Puma has been a firm favorite of mine. While my first pair of sneakers were from Fila (tennis lessons for kids can be interesting), I bought my second online (years ago) from Puma. There was something about a white pair of nifty sneakers with an elongated blue swish and an air-borne puma that intrigued me.

When my package arrived, I opened it with bated breath and the sneakers turned out to be perfect. Hurray for experiencing zero disappointed from an online purchase! I wore those sneakers regularly, much to mum's confusion, "Do you not have other shoes?". Eventually, I went on to buy a chromium Puma ring, which to this day is intact and I still wear it, on and off. It's one of those rings that is a favorite because firstly, its Puma and second, I bought it even though it didn't quite fit my finger, Don't judge me. I have a tendency to buy rings and then make them fit my finger (don't ask how). Besides, the ring was awfully wonderful to let go of. And it was the only one left.

Puma also happens to be the official kit provider of my favorite football club, Arsenal. I tell you, it was meant to be. For some odd reason, it gives me a sense of pride when I watch the Gunners racing past their opponents wearing a Puma manufactured kit.
