When I was invited in the launch of the calligraphy exhibit of the famous calligraphy artist Mouneer Al Shaarani opening at ARTSPACE Gallery in DIFC, I didn't have a second thought even I couldn't read or write in Arabic. I know it wouldn't be hard for me to appreciate Arabic art as I always try to see things beautifully in everything. HE Mohammad Ahmed Al Murr, Speaker of Federal National Council of the UAE inaugurated the opening ceremony attended by VIP guests, friends and followers of the artist including the media.

GUESS SS15

Guess caught me off guard when their invitation for the SS15 Exclusive Fashion Show and Party to be held at the picturesque Bab Al Shams Desert Resort arrived on my inbox. I palpitated for a minute before coming back to my senses. I didn't know what to wear!!! I don't have anything to wear!!! I am officially panicking. Then I remember that I have this new maxi dress I've been saving for some event that I don't even know what is. Yes I am very excited, it's GUESS and I don't know anyone who doesn't love Guess!!! Although I have received a few invites for spring and summer fashion shows, this is the first fashion event I am attending this year. Thankfully, Krissy of K Vanity Project accepted to join me.

Max's Fried Chicken "Sarap Kapiling"

It is one of those restaurants in Dubai that can help you cope up with your life as a Pinoy expatriate in the UAE, food wise, believe me. Whenever we crave for authentic Pinoy food, we run to Max's. Sarap Kapiling eh!!! Max's Fried Chicken became famous because of its signature fried chicken, created initially for the GI's by the owner and founders niece, now the best comfort food that all Filipinos love and grew up with. Without a doubt Max's Fried Chicken is also very popular because they are one of the restaurants  in the Philippines that serve the tastiest and most delicious Filipino food, now also serving in Dubai and Sharjah.
