Eid is just around the corner. Have you got your festive gear sorted?
This Eid, I’m planning on fashion twinning with my little one.
I first discovered Fayon Kids at Numaish Exhibitions. Based in India’s capital city of Delhi which is renowned for its old-world handicrafts and exquisite fabrics, the brand was created by doting mother Preeti Jatia.
Last Saturday I had the absolute pleasure of dining at the much talked about Masala Library. Founded by culinary legend Jiggs Kalra who is fondly referred to as the Czar of Indian cuisine, my expectations were literally sky-high.
Jiggs Kalra is a living Indian culinary legend who has penned 11 books including ‘Prashad’ which is considered to be a chef’s bible for Indian cuisine. He is credited for reviving several lost cooking styles of ancient India including the introduction of age-old kebab recipes that were prized within the royal kitchens of yesteryears.
Masala Library is an award-winning restaurant in Delhi, the capital of India. It has been an inspiration behind many a successful restaurant and has finally opened doors in JW Marriott Marquis Dubai.
Hello Beautiful! How’s the holy month of fasting going for you? Hope you’re staying hydrated and at your radiant best. Hunger is not really a concern for me when fasting (I stock up well in Iftars!), and I’m getting over the thirst issues despite the summer heat by really glugging in my 2 liters post sundown. My greatest challenge is the sleep deprivation.
I get up for suhoor (the early morning meal) at 4 am, diligently do my prayers and keep hitting the snooze button when my alarm cries out its 5.30 am again. Yes, I have a very early morning start given the school run and the traffic to work.
The lack of sleep was creeping up on my face in the form of unsightly dark circles and puffy bags under my eyes, so I thought this would be the perfect time to give the Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream a try.
Inspired by the old-school luncheonettes of eighties America, Black Tap brings back the nostalgia of enjoying a cheeseburger and milkshake as a child, but prims it up to macho grownup standards.
The award-winning burger joint from NYC has quite a repute for its monster shakes. But there’s so much more than Inst-friendly sipping to be had here.
We headed to the Black Tap branch at Dubai Festival City last week and had the pleasure of trying out quite a few of their new-menu items.
The saree, the quintessential Indian garment featuring nine yards of pure grace, is worn in a wide variety of drapes across the Indian subcontinent. From young to the very old, stick thin to well-endowed, the saree enhances every woman who adorns it.
I absolutely adore the saree, but sadly I really lack the skills required to drape it gracefully. When I wear one, it is armored with a battalion of safety-pins, toilet stops get postponed and I find myself walking ever so cautiously lest I trip and unravel all my pleats.
Indian fine-dining restaurant Tresind is an institution of sorts. Unarguably the pioneers in molecular gastronomy in Dubai, Tresind continues to surprise their diners with their sheer creativity that never compromises on taste. Tresind lives true to its French-inspired name; they take inspiration from global cuisines and source global ingredients, but at the heart of it all, their dishes remain true to Indian culinary sensibilities. Très Indian all the way.
Every Ramadan, we really look forward to our Iftar at Tresind. This year, the iftar theme at Tresind was ‘Indian Steakhouse’, a three-course menu that’s priced a very reasonable AED 179 per person.
Another year, another birthday! This year marks a milestone birthday. I have now joined the league of people who cringe at the thought of adding another digit to their stats, yet I feel abundantly blessed to have got here.
I have so many fond memories to look back at in wonder. I’ve managed to jump so many hurdles and accomplish far more than I thought possible. I am healthy and self-sufficient, and surrounded by beautiful loving people. The older (somewhat) wiser me decided to pen together an entire list of life tips, more for my self-reference than anything. Hope you enjoy this!
