Mazina The Address Dubai Marina

Me and my husband has a favorite morning radio show here in Dubai. It keeps us up-to-date and in-the-know of the latest music, news, gossip, events and traffic updates and whatever is happening in Dubai. A lot has been given away in the show and I got lucky to win a voucher for a family brunch at Mazina restaurant - The Address Dubai Marina before Ramadan.

We dined on a Friday but surprisingly the restaurant wasn't so crowded, I wonder if it is always like this. It is buffet so we just first run through what is on the spread of Arabic, Japanese, Chinese and European cuisine.

It is always hard for me to chose what to eat when in a buffet style dining except for handaang Pinoy, so I go first with the ones I love - Japanese food. Although choices are limited but as long as the maki rolls and smoked salmon are available I am satisfied. I tried some sushi and it is tender and fresh.

Arabic mezze such as hummus and moutabal and some cold seafood salad are very mouth watering.

The Chinese section has the widest food selection my husband can indulge into, my daughter also love dumplings and they have many variety but she and her friend were so busy with gaming after just having little food, they only came back for some ice cream afterwards.

After having some Chinese food, I am almost full. I barely have the appetite to eat some from the European food, Ferald brought in the table some roasted beef but unfortunately, it was medium rare and I can hardly chew it because of my newly fixed braces so I content myself with taking some more photos of the place. But I will not pass the chance to have something for dessert, they do have a huge selection

European food looks so delicious but I am too full to have some more.

The wait staff are polite and fast in attending to our request, Mazina is indeed a kid friendly restaurant with its gaming area, soft play area and bouncy castles. The total ambiance of the place would have been more refreshed and with airy feel if the three huge pillars in the middle of the restaurant is not there.

I cannot comment on the price since I am not in the position to.

How to Apply for Children's Residence Visa Under Mother Sponsorship in Dubai 2019

Dubai, 29/09/2019 For expatriate married women living and working in Dubai especially those earning less than 10,000 dirhams salary per month and whose job description is not allowed to apply for visas for their family, sponsoring their children has never been easy until the recent changes in Dubai immigration rules that took effect mid of 2019 this year. The rule now allows any UAE resident (those who have a valid employment visa) male or  FEMALE can now sponsor family members provided that he or she earns a monthly salary of AED 4000 or AED 3000 plus accommodation according to the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship. Back in the day, when I tried to sponsor my husband, my experience was completely different. You can read about it  here . Just this month, a friend of mine applied for her children's visa in Dubai. It was approved, and the visa was issued and stamped on her children's passports. We shared below the documents required and the step-by-step

Sinampalukang Isda (Tilapia/Sea Bream) Pang-alis Umay!

 After Christmas and New Year holidays, do you feel you've had enough of the leftovers? I feel the same way. I needed something to break away from it. The first craving I had was a very Pinoy fish dish.  Sinampalukang isda. Some would think of it as sinigang but it is not sinigang. It is a soup dish of fish in tamarind broth, ginger, chilis, onions, tomatoes, radish leaves or pechay, and of course fish. Okay, it is like sinigang (hahaha). It usually calls for tilapia but I opted for sea bream. It is a completely hearty meal. Of course, to be eaten with hot steaming rice and sawsawan (a mixture of fish sauce and green chili) The original dish calls for fresh raw tamarind but since it is hardly available where I am, I used powdered tamarind. The difference is that fresh raw tamarind gives this dish a thick broth distinct from sinampalukang isda my parents used to cook for us, unlike powdered tamarind. (oh well ex-pat life) So, how to cook it? Ingredients (serves 2) 1 medium-size sea

10 Camping Essentials l Al Qudra Lakes Dubai Overnight Camping

One of the favorite things we like to do at this time of year here in Dubai is to go on a desert camping. Imagine full day sun, clear blue skies, cool breeze, .00001 percent chance of rain while in a beautiful desert landscape. It's a camper's dream. Same time last year, we camped at  Al Aryam Island in Abu Dhabi , also a perfect camping spot. This time around, we didn't go far. We drove just 45 minutes to Al Qudra Lakes inside Saih Al Salam Desert, on the outskirts of Dubai. Al Qudra Lakes is a man-made lake that spans up to 10 hectares and home to more than 100 species of birds including migratory birds. A wonderful place to camp with family and friends We used the Waze app to get there. The only problem was, once you reach the area, it was difficult for the app to help you navigate. We were already going in circles, good thing we luckily found our friends who came early to set up camp. It was dark as there is no lamp post, there is no signage either so it is
