Saying that Mark is a sushi lover is a total understatement. He loves adores sushi more than he loves me. Haha! Kidding aside, I already expected how Mark would be enticed of the thought of a sushi date night, so I immediately confirmed when I got an invite from Katana.
Although there are already a number of Filipino restaurants here in Dubai, it is very rare for international restaurants, or at least with the ones that I tried, to include Filipino cuisine in the menu. Which is why I was stoked when I knew that the Eatery Restaurant in Four Points by Sheraton Downtown Dubai devoted an entire night to highlight the Filipino cuisine. They have International themed-buffet every night and on Fridays, they have this Filipino themed-buffet which they call Kabayan Fiesta.

I have mentioned in a couple of posts about my battle with PCOS, and if you follow me on Instagram, it was just recently that I have somehow opened up about it and how I had been working on eating and living healthy.
I have been struggling with PCOS for more than four years now. I used to have regular periods and not a single issue during that time of the month, until stress took its toll on me. And then, poof! My ovaries went crazy.
I haven't been that open about my condition as I've always thought it's a personal matter which shouldn't be divulged online for everybody to feast in. But along with a number of questions brought about by my subtle revelation in my online posts, when I look back and think about how some people have been rude to me (intentionally or not) over the past years, it suddenly got into my senses that still a lot of people are unaware of how big of a battle PCOS really is.
And since September is PCOS awareness month, it's but fitting to let you know my thoughts. I will not go into the scientific and medical explanations about what PCOS is, as I am no expert and Google would be very handy for that, but I'd like to share my own experiences. Yes, I am a PCOS fighter, and here's what I (and I'm sure all women battling with PCOS), would like you to know.
I usually cook on weekends, Fridays specifically, if we got no plans of going out. But last weekend, our flat was scheduled for pest control and we were not allowed to use the kitchen, so I was already prepared to eat out or order food online.
It's as if the universe knew of our struggle and sent Debonairs Pizza to the rescue! :p It's a lucky coincidence that I received a mail and call from Debonairs Pizza that same day. And in no time, two boxes of large piping hot pizzas were delivered right at our doorsteps.
Mark and I were invited to grace the launch of Olive Oil, Jumeira Rotana’s new all day dining restaurant, a couple of weeks back. While the hotel was unfamiliar to us and was a bit of a struggle to get to (it's tucked in 2nd December Street in Satwa, with all the traffic especially since it's rush hour), the restaurant was easy to find as it's located on the ground floor of the hotel.
