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.

GUESS showcased its elegant range of dresses and spring summer 2015 collection against a picture perfect backdrop of beautiful sand dunes at Bab Al Shams Desert Resort in Dubai.

The mood of GUESS fashion show arena was transformed into an Arabian night with lamps, camels and bedouin style tents. The media and fashion-conscious crowd were welcomed with refreshing drinks and canap├ęs.

The strong natural sunlight highlighted the catwalk whilst the pastel‐colored garments, classic denim jeans, and pretty dresses complemented the vibrant colors of the landscape. Overlooking the seemingly endless Arabian Desert, the venue transformed with the amazing vistas of the sunset. As the scenery softened, so did the clothing.

The womenswear and menswear collection presented by the models showcased the most anticipated fashion-forward silhouettes of the summer season. For women, evening gowns, cocktail dresses and smart casuals in hyper-saturated floral, paisley, and sexy animal prints dominate the delivery in hues of baby pink, peach, blue and monochrome palette. Mini dresses with gold chain and zipper detailing adds an unexpected touch to the silhouettes and a bit of edge to the ultra-feminine collection. For men, gingham shirts, dress pants, distressed and ripped denim and many graphic print t-shirts offer an urban and street style look in this spring’s offering.

These are my personal favorites
The dresses looks amazing especially the third from the left

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
