We’ve been hit by a nasty flu this past week, thankfully all of us are now feeling great. Arroz Caldo is a simple dish that is hearty and comforting. This dish is made during the cooler months or when someone is sick. It is usually made with a mix of glutinous and regular rice, chicken, garlic and lots of ginger. I’ve made a healthier version by adding white quinoa to rice. It’s a great way to introduce quinoa to your family, the chicken broth and ginger slightly masked the nutty flavor of quinoa.
Fun City invited us to a Family Play Themed Morning’s at Oasis mall, it is the biggest branch in Dubai. They offer games, rides and play areas for all kids and adults, perfect plays to spend time with the whole family this summer. LittleMiss and I had an all girl bonding because the boy’s had a basketball game that morning. It was our first time at Oasis, the area was so big.
Living abroad or traveling overseas make’s one crave for something familiar. It could be as simple as vanilla ice cream that brings back memories of summer spent biking with friends. Dining at Max’s Restaurant satisfies every Overseas Filipino Worker’s need to have something from home. Several Filipino restaurants have opened here in Dubai, but this franchise has a special place in the hearts of Pinoy. Why? Probably, 5 out of 10 Filipino family have once in their life celebrated a special occassion with Max’s restaurant. Our family for one has held a baptism, birthday, wedding and reunion with them.
We recently attended a demo of Kobold vacuum cleaners held at Fairmont The Palm. In the middle of the demo I declared that I want uhmm well more of NEED the cleaning system.

A dear friend was visiting UAE for the weekend and his only request was to see the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. We finally got to visit the grand mosque up close after 6 years here in UAE, our first time. We left Al Qusais around 9 am and arrived at the capital by 10:30 am, we missed a few turns going to the mosque. Sadly, we did not make it in time for the 11 am guided tour.
