After all those dusty days and sand storms, who does not need a professional car wash? Right? πŸ˜‰ And whats better than doing it the “green” way! Well, a couple of weeks ago my friend was telling me about this new waterless car wash service (+ detailing +protection) called WALESS. She arranged for it and I got a call from the owners about it… they wanted to treat me for an early birthday gift I guess πŸ˜‰

Yesterday, two gentlemen came in a mini van for my waterless carwash and detailing

They are eco-friendly company, they use high-end products to clean cars without the need of water… a sight I hate seeing, specially when I pass by some houses early in the morning and see water wasted badly!

The staff/cleaners were friendly, I kind of checked on many things and asked them to concentrate on some areas! Like for example my Continue reading

Lazurd Macarres

A day or two after I posted about Lazurd on my blog, I came home to find this goody bag waiting for me from Lazurd

Inside of which were three boxes of different flavors of Macarres! I guess they know how much I liked them πŸ˜€

Whats so special about them? They are chewier than macaroons and all of their flavor contains a hint of za’atar – which, to me, made it so special and so different

My two favorite flavors are rose and saffron ❀

Thank you Lazurd – so so so much πŸ˜‰ I considered it an early birthday gift – very much appreciated ❀

Tea W/ Abu Shady At Nawfara Cafe

During my day tour with Mohammed (link) I spotted this sign of Nawfarah Cafe (Ω…Ω‚Ω‡Ω‰ Ψ§Ω„Ω†ΩˆΩΨ±Ψ©) – meaning The Fountain

I remember I read about it on the Internet… there is (still to-date) a “Hakawati” (Ψ­ΩƒΩˆΨ§Ψͺي) storyteller that comes to this coffee shop at night named Abu Shady (أبو شادي)! I was determined to pass by the cafe during my stay!

I came at different times and asked the staff… they informed me that he comes around 5:00-5:30PM

The cafe is located behind the Continue reading

Shakespeare & Co.

A good place to have an afternoon tea at when shopping in Dubai Mall is Shakespeare & Co. πŸ˜‰ The cafe is designed in a very colorful Victorian style… chairs and sofas of bright colors, with classical mix and match patterns! No table is set in a way to have a matching set

This is the kind of place that I appreciate the kind of design used in but do not wish to have it for myself – if that’ll make any sense? Well let me try again! If I were starting my Continue reading
