Abhijaan 2015 – Bengali Film Festival In Dubai | Teenkahon (Three Obsessions)

January 29, 2015


Abhijaan 2015 - Bengali Film Festival in Dubai

Another Bengali post that screams out my Bengali identity … even the bird who sits on my window in the morning knows my pedigree by now. From shorshe bata Maach/mustard fish to Vivekananda Park styled aloor dum/spicy potatoes, from writing my encyclopaedic post on Bengali food to the most recent showcase of my Bengali pop […]

Weekend in Dubai Calls For A Brunch, A Picnic Brunch!

January 24, 2015



This is going to be one post where I am deliberately not writing much. I want the pictures to convey it all! An amazing day – a real break away from the city’s manic lifestyle… lazing on the mat, surrounded by the greens of Al Badia Golf Club, and the famous cityscape at the backdrop… […]

Spicy Baby Potatoes or Aloor Dum – Kolkata Street Style!

January 6, 2015


DSC_6743 copy

I have been told that the first blogpost in a New Year is very symbolic… it’s kind of a vision board as to what I am hoping for in this new year. And to pin down on that vision board cum first blogpost took me so long that we are already 6 days into 2015. […]

December 25, 2014



Merry Christmas Everyone!

Countdown To 2015 | The Golden Dishes of Dubai!

December 22, 2014


Vogue Cafe Golden Lemonade

All That Glitters Is *Edible* Gold! The gold price in the UAE at the time of writing this article is Dhs 4,392.61/ounce or USD 1,195.87/ounce (as per this site) – cheaper than the ‘Diamonds Are Forever’ cocktail available at the Skyview Bar in Burj Al Arab. The latter will set you back by Dhs 4,950 […]

Hidden Gems of Dubai | The Majlis Dubai And Jumeirah Mosque

December 18, 2014


Jumeirah Mosque

Hidden Gems in Dubai – a topic that is very very close to my heart. In this blingy city which is developing by the hour, there are still many places that remain hidden – and hence untouched – and thereby unfamiliar to most people – and therefore continue to remain a *hidden gem*. So be […]

Khor Kalba & Kalba Corniche | Following The Bikers’ Trail

December 14, 2014



My husband is a biker, a late bloomer in that. Like most Bengali boys with overprotective parents, this boy’s passion in wanting to *be one with the machine*, saw the light much later in life. On Fridays, much before the break of dawn, S is out of the house as he joins the other bikers […]

Farmers Market On The Terrace | Breakfast Picnic and Knowing Your Local Farmers

November 29, 2014


Farmers Market

Imagine breakfast on Fridays sitting on a wooden bench or on a picnic mat on green grass surrounded by locally produced fresh, bright organic vegetables available at affordable prices. Does the term ‘affordable’, that too ‘organic’ even exist in Dubai, you wonder? Yes, it does. Cooler weather brings local, organic, seasonal produce to the original […]

Ronda Locatelli | The Truffle Story With Giorgio Locatelli

November 23, 2014


Truffle Pasta

Poetry on Truffles! No, I haven’t been brought up with the knowledge of these ‘fruiting body of a subterranean Ascomycete fungus’ that creates such an exciting topic of conversation amongst my foodie friends. It was not until I read a post written by Francine (aka Life in the Food Lane) that I became completely mersmerised […]

Kebab Bistro | A Parsi Lunch Buffet To Remember

November 2, 2014



A huge group of friends, a visiting mom, some noisy children and a lot of hungry tummies – when all descend on a small restaurant tucked away in a small side alley in Satwa-Jumeirah for a Friday lunch, what’s the result? Chaos, a delicious chaos! Jargons aside, this is one lunch buffet to remember. Kebab […]
