YouGotAGift

7 years of being together and I am still having a hard time finding the perfect gift for my husband. I surely fail in that department. Last year, for his birthday we bought a mini player that he can use while jogging at the park. The day after I bought the player, he came home and declared that he loaded his blackberry with songs for his run. Really!! I just bought you a player that you’ll get in a few days and you tell me you have the blackberry for that! Dilemma in buying Mr. C a gift. 1) He almost always manage to buy something similar to what I already bought him 2) I rarely go out without him – I don’t drive and travelling with two kids in tow with bags is challenging. 3) If and when the kids and I manage to go gift shopping for dad – V declares “Daddy, we have a surprise for you! Mama, Chloe and I bought you a …” as soon as he see’s Dad. Father’s …

Mattress Sanitazing Treatment by The Healthy Home

Both kids suffer from some kind of dust allergy. We are especially concerned about Kuya V’s almost daily morning sneeze and recurring wheezing cough. I don’t want him to go under Singular medication again. “Impurities and micro-organisms such as dust mites, bacteria, mold, fungi and viruses are easily brought into your home from your external environment through AC ducts/ventilation, shoes, bags, clothing and even your skin. “ To try and fight off his allergy we do the following – change bed/pillow sheets every week, vacuum and steam mattress 2x a week, wash pillows and sun-dry every month and lastly I insist on changing our pillows (we are a family of “sleeping droolers”) every year. I received an email from Mr. Hisham Jaber, one of the founders of The Healthy Home ME (HHME) offering us a complimentary mattress sanitizing treatment. I am aware of the company and have read about Corrine’s review here, I even joined several online competitions sponsored by the company but sadly didn’t win. I accepted the complimentary treatment and asked to be …

Shakshouka – Baker & Spice

We found ourselves enjoying the view of Burj Khalifa early Saturday morning after hearing mass, while waiting for Baker & Spice to serve breakfast at 8 am. Kids amused themselves by taking photos, going up and down the stairs and waving to Dubai fountain cleaner. I’ll have Shakshouka please as soon as the waiter handed us the menu, he cheerful replied “which one, madam?” I look down on the menu,  I indeed had 3 choices on how I want my shakshouka – red, green and matbukha. I ordered Capuccino and the boys shared a cup of thick Mexican Hot Chocolate – the best hot chocolate we’ve had here in Dubai. Shakshouka Matbukha – 4 eggs poached on a homemade tomato and red peppers sauce with garlic, chili and olive oil. Four sunshiny egg goodness served with freshly baked farmhouse bread = a good morning indeed! We all enjoyed every bit of sauce. V who swears he doesn’t like tomatoes and peppers (I didn’t tell him dish consists of the mentioned ingredients) exclaimed that it’s one of …
