Will be posting my new website once it’s all exported!

As of now I’ll be posting using the new site below:

Dubai EatOuts #148: XIAO WEI YANG

Woot! Thanks to husband’s colleague, we found a Chinese steamboat (Hotpot) restaurant… Authentic too!! 

The hot bubbly soup experience, dunking fresh ingredients, the smell of herbs and noisy chit-chatters reminds me of home…

                 
          
                         

Although the owners are from China, they do speak basic english which comes handy for non-chinese customers. And i get to put my Mandarin into good use too (thanks to my primary education in Singapore).

You know it’s authentic when crowds of Chinese families flood in after 8pm, chatting and slurping with hunger.

But the one thing missing, was my all time favourite saltish/savory diluted chilli sauce to dip.

Looks boring on the outside?
Bah! It’s about their flavourful herbal soups and the bubbly experience that matters!

Including 2 soft drinks, one large bottle of water, we (six of us) spent Dhs308… Mmm!

Location: Baniyas Road, Deira (Same street as Radisson Blu hotel)

3D Sketches: The Bathroom (1)

One of my must-haves in my future bathroom, is a full-height glass shower cubicle!

         

It doesn’t have to be frosted… Crisp clear will do.

The Waiting Season

Work used to be bouncy and dramatic… But lately, i dread the uncertainty feeling waiting to know the outcome.
Though i’m busy enough to keep myself loaded with work, the waiting feeling can turn dull in my seconds.

While the husband benefits from his prospering career, here i am hoping for some fresh air elsewhere better and exciting… Soon!

My restlessness is back!

3D Sketches: The Living Room (2)

Okay i quickly sketched another living room randomly without thinking in depth about funtionality and it’s purpose.

             

One: Placing a cabinet high up isn’t an advantage to those who aren’t tall. And it does look tacky fitted into a sleek showcase wall unit.
Two: There’s still space for a typical furniture (ie.chair/ottoman).

Oh dear.

That’s what happens when i’m all excited sketching out ideas…

Dubai EatOuts #147: BARRIO FIESTA

I’ve never really tried Filipino cuisine/ cooking much. Upon reading an article in the local papers (early this year i think) about a newly opened authentic Filipino restaurant, i insisted to go and taste!

We’ve been regulars, dining in Barrio Fiesta eversince! Great service, meals fresh out of the kitchen consistently, thick rich gravies and the HUGE portion!

     
                        
        

I delibrately zoomed into the large chunks of vegetables and meat, burps!

This place always reminds me of home… Asian faces, cooking style and ingredients!

We ordered:
1 pot of beef soup
1 stir-fry beans,pumpkin and tofu dish (with shrimp and coconut sauce/gravy)
1 medium sized bowl of rice to share
2 Lemon juice

Total bill was Dhs76.

We’ll always be back.

3D Sketches: The Living Room (1)

I surprised myself with a few crisp ‘Living Room’ concepts today. Maybe because weekend is around the corner…

Among my many favourites, i personally liked modern Balinese interiors, with lesser woody feeling/ finishes involved…
The sketch below highlights (in red) selections of tasteful teak furnitures, a neutral-coloured leisure sofa and, voila!

             

My much-loved dream living space!
