#GoodMorningDubai #Friday #brunch #latergram #Caravanonthewalk #RitzCarlton #TheWalk #Dubai #myDubai #dubaifood #dubaiunblogged #FF All prepared for Halloween? Pumpkin Curving session at the Generation Creation Brunch in Mazina last year... one of those rare moments when my entire family goes wild!!! #Halloween #throwbackthursday #tbt #Mazina #AddressMarina #DubaiMarina #Dubai #myDubai #dubaiunblogged #ishitaunblogged @theaddresshotels A morning spent in unlearning a few myths on healthy eating (smaller portions few times a day or juicing is good for your body etc) and learning a completely new philosophy - the Viva Mayr philosophy from Dr Stossier. Viva Mayr in Austria has been voted one of the most luxurious spas in the world. I am most curious about the *spa cuisine*. The food wisdom was followed up appropriately by a gorgeous looking healthy spread at the @Comptoir102.

#breakfast #latergram #VivaMayr #DrStossier #healthyeating #Dubai #myDubai #dubaifood #dubaiunblogged #ishitaunblogged Pot half empty or half full? An instance when *half empty* reflects a great moment spent licking a spoon!

@coffeecakesandrunning Touched, for making *Mishti Doi* for us... it was amazing!

#GoodMorningDubai #MishtiDoi #weekend #latergram #Dubai #myDubai #dubaiunblogged #ishitaunblogged Good Morning! What a brilliant night it had been... sitting right in front of the Burj Khalifa, watching the Dubai fountains dancing away every half an hour, chatting to Chef Marcus about traditional Japanese food and discovering *Avishkar* - the boy from Darjeeling! Thanks Asad for the history behind the Dynamite and the Californian rolls.

Brilliant food (still dreaming about the beef tenderloin, the black cod in miso, the crunchy king prawn in kafir lime and the chocolate brownie with raspberry sorbet... and oh, the super spicy Thai Bellini), stunning view... this is the newly launched outdoor lounge - Zeta. And unlike other Dubai lounges, a lot of kids around in a separate dining area. So this can get as romantic or as family friendly as you want. The only challenge that I foresee are the summers - but I think that by that time they would have another *cool* plan in place!
