Gia Cooks: Pork Mendereta - Menudo/Caldereta


Seedology in Al Wasl, Dubai



Have you ever been to a cafe which instantly made you happy? I have. It's actually during our visit in Seedology at Al Wasl in Dubai.

New Menu at Qwerty in Media One Hotel



Mark and I visited Qwerty a few weekends back to try their new menu. They have appointed a new chef, thus the menu revamp. It's our first time here, so we never really got to try their previous offerings, but I've heard a lot of good feedback about this restaurant and we were very much excited to try out their newest offerings.

Touring Around Dubai on a Speed Boat



A couple of weekends back, I got an invitation from Splash Tours UAE for a tour around Dubai's coast and its coastal landmarks on board a speed boat.

Filipino Boodle Fight at The Daily in Rove Trade Centre



Filipino cuisine is probably one of the most underrated cuisines in the world. I don't wanna sound biased here but there's really a lot more to Filipino food than being salty, oily, or icky (as others may perceive).

Belgian Chocolate Goodness at The Choco Monarch



After the Play House Brunch, Erick and I met up with Nikki and Grace for some catching up over desserts. It's as if we didn't get to have desserts and weren't full from our brunch that we still got room for dessert. :p

Seafood Night at Fusion in Ghaya Grand Hotel



While the dining scene in Dubai is at its height on weekends because of brunches here and there, weekdays don't come far behind. Most of the hotel restaurants offer theme nights on weekdays—which is sort of a mini version of a weekend brunch and is mostly focused on a specific "theme" or cuisine each night.

A Much Needed Staycation at Ajman Hotel



We ended our August with a much needed staycation (uh huh, this is post is long overdue, sorry!). We intentionally didn't plan for an Eid holiday and postponed it a week later, just in time for our anniversary.

Scitec Nutrition Protein Pancake



Having been in the fitness industry for more than 10 years now, and being a bodybuilder myself, I can clearly say that apart from working out and proper dieting, right supplementation also plays a key role in achieving your fitness goals.

Play House Brunch at Liwan Restaurant in Swissotel Al Ghurair



While there are a lot of brunch choices here in Dubai, only a few caters to the whole family, especially the kids. Some have dedicated kids' play area, yes, but nothing like the one that the Play House Brunch offers.

Boulevard Chic Brunch at Address Boulevard



Winter in Dubai is just around the corner and the brunch season has already started. It's been ages since I last experienced a Friday brunch and I've also never had the chance to catch up with Tonnee, a friend from high school, who's been here in Dubai for almost a year already; so when an invitation for a Friday brunch came my way, I immediately said yes and tagged my friend along.

Coffee and Tea with a View at Kava & Chai



Located at the heart of the heritage hub that is Al Seef, is a place which coffee and tea lovers will surely enjoyKava & Chai. A specialty coffee shop serving up freshly brewed coffee and tea, they also offer some healthy blends and bites, and pastries and desserts.

Workout of the Day: Shoulder Workout



Shoulder Workout

(3 sets of 10 reps each)

Indian Street Food Fix at Roti Rollers in La Mer Dubai



Indian food, let alone Indian street food, tend to be too oily; at least that's what I observed. So as much as Mark and I enjoy having Indian food, it's not always our go-to cuisine if we're trying to eat healthy. And admittedly, though I was very eager to try Roti Rollers for our Saturday cheat meal, I was also hesitant since I knew Mark wasn't up for it.

All-You-Can-Eat Dim Sum at Long Yin



I had been having this huge craving for dim sum for weeks! I guess the universe heard my pleas when an invitation from Long Yin popped up on my email.

Art of Spice Indian Night by Celebrity Chef Sweety Singh



I'd been to the Medley Restaurant before for Iftar, and just a couple of weeks ago, Mark and I were back at Medley to experience their Indian themed night. Dubbed as the "Art of Spice", the theme night offers a buffet spread of authentic Indian dishes with ingredients and flavors inspired by the North Indian region, all curated by the award winning chef Sweety Singh.

Asian Food Fix at Wosaki - Wok Salad Kitchen



A relaxed dining venue, Wosaki is a wok and salad kitchen located at Al Karama, Dubai. It is a small kitchen (which I think can house around 20 pax) with modern industrial interiors, communal tables benches, complete with some funky wall accents and murals. You can also witness how your food is made fresh from their open kitchen.

L'eto Caffe in City Walk, Dubai



I've been seeing L'eto Caffe every time we're strolling around the esplanade in City Walk. There's something about their Parisian inspired decors (which are visible from the al fresco dining area) that's so captivating. Glad that I finally got to see it up close when we were invited to try their offerings a few weekends back.

Middle Eastern Fare at Al Maeda



Dubai, being our second home for more than 3 years now, has opened our palates into different cuisines. One of which is the Middle Eastern cuisine which Mark and I have already come to love. That is why we were more than delighted when we got to indulge in an Arabian gastronomic adventure a couple of weeks back at Al Maeda Restaurant.

Indo-Chinese Fare at China Town



It was a Saturday and Mark and I just lazed around the whole day, so we found ourselves again walking into New Sarhad Darbar for our Saturday dinner habit. I was craving some Mutton Korma and Roti, which unfortunately were not available that time and I wasn't up for having their other dishes, so we decided to dine elsewhere.
