I can't believe I almost forgot to blog about this on my ultimate catch up session. Maria bonita, the mexican where I did utter the words 'this is the best day of my life' over the guacamole. Located on umm al sheif road (or something) in jumeirah 3/ umm sequim, there lies heaven! Actually decent mexican food for once! Amazing gauc, delicious burritos, refried beans I would kill for!

See you soon, Maria!

DF in the Desert

Last weekend I ventured out of Dubai and headed to the desert! An indeed, it was quite deserted - sans a few ropey looking camels who came to visit at 5 am! Tasty arabic bread and beef koftas, watching the stars and forcing the guy with a guitar to play 'puff the magic dragon'. good times!

DF down under

So I went off to Sydney on october 24th for almost a month of work... Two big auctions were happening and they needed some help! Sadly only a couple days off out of the month, but I loved Sydney! i didnt realise at all that it is actually quite cool - lots of good shopping, tasty food and pretty architecture... DF and SJ took a boat trip around the harbour, ate some tasty snapper, purchased some sweet owl items from a pop up shop(Little Venice in Paddington), drank excellent coffee (who knew Australians had such good coffee?), sold a polar bear, witnessed an excellent thunder and lightening storm and befriended a naughty koala! I also loved the Jacaranda trees - purple and so pretty!...

Long time no blog

So it has been a long time since i graced the blog with some blogging... this is due to insanely busy schedule at work - going to Australia for a month (work) and then moving house! But i am back and ready to blog, starting with my trip to Oz!
