Max's Restaurant New Menu

No comments:
Max's Restaurant, our favorite authentic Filipino restaurant here in Dubai, has recently launched a new menu.


The new addition to their ever-growing menu of Filipino dishes varies from beef, chicken, and seafood dishes as well as some addition to desserts with a new take on its presentation plus a couple of new refreshments.

I missed the launch but we were invited to sample the new dishes and had a taste of these new offerings from Max's Restaurant in Bur Dubai.

Dubai Creek Harbour Promenade

No comments:

Dubai Creek Harbour Promenade, also known as Rise DCH is one of the newest outdoor entertainments in Dubai we've visited recently. This project by property giant Emaar sits adjacent to Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, an asset to the project which they promised to keep untouched and protected.

Dubai Creek Harbour will be both a financially viable and ecologically responsible city, built with future generations in mind, using every innovation to minimize its environmental impact. This world-class development will offer spectacular views of the creek and Dubai skyline-Emaar

and by that, they mean this.

The Art of Brunch at Movenpick Hotel & Apartments Bur Dubai

No comments:
Our brunch experience at the Art of Brunch at Fountain Restaurant, Movenpick Hotel & Apartments Bur Dubai was nothing short of grand. It was stellar. Definitely one to repeat over and over again.


Location and Ambiance

Movenpick Hotel & Apartments Bur Dubai is one easy hotel to locate. If you are taking a cab, just tell them it is opposite of American Hospital and Al Nasr Leisureland in Dubai and the driver can easily take you there. If using the metro, the closest metro would be Oud Metha metro station, part of the Green Line, but you still need to take a cab to take you to the hotel, about a five-minute drive. For those driving, finding a parking was a breeze. We could have asked for valet but the husband was in the mood of finding his own.

The weather was glorious outside that day! Surprisingly, it was also all bright and sunny inside the hotel.

It was all thanks to the high glass ceiling overhead the hotel's lobby. It lets the light in. Highlighting the grand staircase carpeted in blue tones, where a big spread of desserts was laid beautifully at the bottom of it, serving as a focal point. I can't help to imagine my daughter coming down this grand staircase on her 18th birthday. I'm sure it's going to be a dramatic entrance.

It was Friday but the restaurant was already full when we arrived and the brunch service was in full swing.  It only tells me one thing. A restaurant full of people means good food and good service. The sound of that made me all the more excited to dine here.

Dubai: Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary

No comments:
Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary is a protected area in Dubai. It is home to about 20,000 birds mostly migrating to Dubai in winter from East African and West Asian countries. This wetland covers an area of 6 kilometers and a combination of salt flats, mudflats, mangroves, and lagoons.

This is one attraction you can enjoy in Dubai during winter that is free of charge. It operates from Saturday to Thursday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

When you visit, you can expect to find a flock of greater flamingos, probably about 500 of them as well as other species of birds.

Palawan: Family Adventure at Sabang X Zipline

No comments:
Another activity we enjoyed doing while in Puerto Princesa, Palawan was zip lining at Sabang X Zipline's 800 meters zip line.


It is one of the reasons Ferald and I were so looking forward to this trip. We've been seeing a lot of this fun and exciting activity everywhere in the Philippines and we knew it is something we wanted to try. Since we are in Puerto Princesa to see the world famous Underground River, the Sabang X Zipline was our perfect idea of a side trip. If you are a fan of Amazing Race, Sabang X Zipline was popularized by Amazing Race Philippines Season 2.

We were so excited to do this and we have two kids thirsty for adventure brave enough to do things with their thrill seeker parents. Before we could zip ourselves from the mountain, across the sea and onto an island off the coast of Sitio Sabang, we needed to pass through a beautiful untouched beachfront with silky soft powdery sand and hike up through a lush green forest.

Lapita Hotel Dubai 

Lapita Hotel Dubai is a beautiful Polynesian-themed resort located in the heart of Dubai Parks and Resorts where Riverland, Legoland, Legoland Water Park, Motiongate, and Bollywood parks are right at its doorstep.

It was a long drive from where we live but it was worth it. It is one place inside Dubai that can make you feel you're somewhere in the tropics, whereas for us, feels like home. We are from the tropical islands of the Philippines but since this is a Polynesian-themed hotel, you can think of Fiji, Samoa, or Hawaii of course. Your choice, wherever you fancy. I'm sure to add this hotel to my weekend staycation destinations list.
