French toast haven

For most people French toast is not a big deal, nor something one really thinks about. Sometimes a good breakfast craving and that’s about it. 

So when someone tells you there is a place for French toast that is a must have. That you just got to try it, it is out of this world. What do you think? My thoughts were along the line of “meeh, sure, let’s try it some time”

Knowing my husband and his sense for food though, I should have known better. But who can blame me? After all it was just French toast…

My husband even mentioned this to me long before we moved in together. Along with many more places and foods to try together. I will have to get into all that in different posts. Can’t deny it is pretty amazing and adventurous with a husband that knows his likes and ways…that just happens to be the same as mine πŸ˜‰

Let’s get back on topic: french toast. 

I have kind of postponed posting about it as it is kind of a hidden little gem. You can barely find it on the menu. At the same time whenever we get visitors that is one of the places we just have to take them to. Each and everyone of them just as surprised over a french toast and its capabilities. 

We introduce to you Pauls French toast

No matter how many pictures or from whichever angle it just does not do the dish any justice w h a t s o e v e r. 

You just have to step into Paul’s, order and try it yourself. 

As soon as you bite into it it just melts in your mouth. Every ingredient has got its ratio on point – together with the drizzled caramel and vanilla ice cream 🀀

I can’t help myself, its like an addiction… a must have… just as hubby told. He knows his food – no doubt. 

To find this on the menu it is hidden in a little black box in the corner of the page under the name of “Notre Pain Perdu”. 

You can thank us later πŸ˜œπŸ’™

When nature copies your style..

Or could it be the other way around? πŸ€”

Haha, not a serious case you did not get that already. 

I did not realize until after we took the picture that my pants totally matches the bush behind me. Random. 

These are some of my most comfy pants and I have had them for some time now. They are wide, yet look stylish..yet feel like PJs.. it’s the best from all worlds πŸ˜†

Ootd for yah. But Dubai heat ain’t the most comfyest weather to be taking outfit pictures.. thank you to my hubby for tolerating all this for me, always ready and with a smile to help me take outfit pictures or anything else I may want to captureπŸ’•

Birthday Girl

Salaams everyone!

So lucky me turned a year older yesterday, yay! But it’s only a number … mentally my age could be at times more disturbing.

Anyways, put aside me and let’s bring my husband in focus. Because my oh my am I a lucky girl or what. Yesterday I was in for a whirlwind of surprises, almost literally too.

My husband being the amazing man that he is started of the day by saying no work today and surprising me with the most beautiful flowers, balloons and cake😍 Yes, as if he does not already melt my heart it just went into a big puddle of love-goo ❀️

Aren’t those just the most bright and beautiful flowers?! 😍❀️

Oh, and guys, he did not stop there..

I got the message to start getting ready, we had to be at a certain location by a set time. Also to be ready to take a lot of pictures. My mind started to race thinking what could this be?! I honestly had no idea and would have never guessed what was in store for me.

So a little while later we arrived at this location and I see my husband holding papers that say “HeliDubai”

O – M – G! We were going on a helicopter ride to see Dubai from above 😡😍 Something I have really wanted to do, but never thought it would happen this soon.

It was seriously one of the most amazing and breathtaking views ever and what an experience allhamdulillah.

I will share some picture, but tbh the pictures do not do any justice to the beauty seen from above mashallah.

So breathtaking! And to see the palm from above and with your own eyes.

A m a z i n g !

If you come to Dubai and you get the chance I would for sure recommend it. Something to see with your own eyes and HeliDubai was a top notch choice for it. Crew were on top of everything and really put safety and security on the frontline with all passengers. Our pilot was so much fun too. Friendly man with humor and made sure you saw everything.

Thank you hubby! You spoil me way beyond and I don’t know what I do to deserve such treatment ❀️


I wrote this draft back in October, but forgot to share it. Hope you enjoy the read. 


There are times, times that need no reason or explanation.. times where you just crave some pure comfort food. Dip your head in a bowl full of food and eat. So thats what I literally did.

As hubby was working late I took a cab out to meet him when he was done. Tired as he must have been – he still took me out for dinner.
Both our tummies were feeling for Asian food and the choice landed on Wagamama.
Fun fact, never been here either.. though it is wordy known and I don’t know how many times I must have passed this place living in UK.


My choice of food landed on Duck ramen. Living in UAE one of many great things is the fact that I need not worry or go hunting for halal food. Seriously, might not be a big deal for many.. but if you lived where I did this is BIG! πŸ˜€
So I indulged in some duck ramen. Mind you this bowl is super huge.. most people sharing one bowl like this. yeah, not me.. shared a spoonful or two with hubby and the rest .. I don’t know how.. it just disappeared my tummy.. don’t ask me how.

This just hit the spot of comfort. Thank you hubby!



Shakespeare – ish

The other day we went to Sharjah with the family and met up with some family friends. Sharjah has its little treasures and hidden gems. One of my favourite things to do is walk along the corniche after maghrib, such calmness doing so. 

One little treasure is this beautiful coffee/tea spot called Shakespeare & co. And my oh my, the ambiance in this place. Prettiness.

I’s like I stepped into an old classic. 


Bonjour Everyone!

This is actually from some weeks ago. My husband and I decided to take a road trip and drive to Abu Dhabi. My husband having bad experiences in the past with me and long car rides was not sure about this. No, not that I get car sick or anything close to that.. on the contraire.. I tend to get a little snoozy on long rides… ok.. I get very snoozy. Something about any moving vehicle makes me sleepy and I can sleep like a baby. I know I am not alone on this, or what do you say?

After having experienced my snoozy car life I was on a mission to prove him wrong.
Anyways I do love a good road trip, put on some good music and have a good laugh and chat! Always fun, and in my defence hubby, you know that your past experience with me could not count ;-D thihi


The difference from Dubai to Abu Dhabi – city to dessert – skyscrapers to palm. And all along the one and same Sheikh Zayed road.

As it is Abu Dhabi, one can’t drive all that way and not drop by the beautiful Sheikh Zayed Mosque. Unless you live there or travel that way very often. If you have not visited this beauty I do recommend you do.

It turned out to be a short trip cause of some other commitments, but it was a good drive and visit to Abu Dhabi. And I proved my hubby wrong, I can go for car rides without falling asleep *score* πŸ˜€
