Toko Family garden brunch

Family Garden Brunch at Toko Dubai

The weather is perfect to spend outdoors and I don’t feel like cooking on weekends. During this time we find ourselves going and eating out. Luckily, here in Dubai we are spoilt with so many brunch offers that the whole family can enjoy. We recently went to the Family Garden Brunch at Toko located at Vida Downtown. It was our first time to dine at Toko and we immediately fell in love with its Japanese themed garden. Adorned with colorful floating Japanese umbrellas, a relaxing water feature and tall trees, a secret garden in the middle of a concrete jungle. Toko’s brunch is divided in two, an outdoor barbecue/carving area which offers sweet chilli Angus ​b​eef skewers, rib eye steak and miso glazed black cod to name a few and inside the restaurant a beautiful spread of dim sums, desserts, raw salads, sushi and sashimi. If that’s still not enough to convince you, I hope the photo’s will. The brunch setup was not overwhelming which we really liked. It doesn’t mean though that you will leave hungry.

Kuya V’s 8th Birthday

Last week, our eldest Kuya V turned 8 years old and this year we all decided not to organize a party, instead he asked that we do several things he really liked. His birthday weekend coincided with the Islamic New Year which meant we had Thursday till Saturday to celebrate. First thing to do on the list is play and have picnic at the beach. We did just that with our Filipino blogging family here in Dubai. Bbq, games with friends and cake! A wheelboard – We know that he really likes one but it’s too expensive and I find it dangerous. Luckily, I won an instagram competition hosted by Fun City – come, play! He can use the board indoors and always wearing a helmet. We watched the movie Pan at Vox Cinema at the newest wing of Mall of the Emirates.   iFly with Dad – a self challenge to conquer his fear of heights iFly Dubai. Last year he promised us and challenged himself that when he turns 8 years old he will try to conquer …

Our Valentine’s Date at Yuan, Atlantis The Palm

The date at Yuan was a surprise for our eldest, Kuya V. I wanted to re-assure him that even if he’s a big brother now, he will always be Mama’s baby boy. Yuan restaurant has a kid dining policy of 4 years and up. The initial plan was for Kuya and I to go on date and Dad will spend the afternoon with LittleMiss. We asked Yuan’s reception if they would allow us to dine with our toddler, they agreed saying that the policy only applies for dinner. Our hostess led us to our table and handed us Yuan’s Yam Cha brunch menu, we are to order anything that we want on the menu.

Easter Brunch at JW Marriot Hotel

We celebrated Easter Sunday and our 7 yrs wedding anniversary at JW Marriot Hotel. Dad’s company was one of the few companies that was on holiday that day, we were fortunate to be able to hear mass and celebrate Easter with our closest friends. Most of the hotels here in Dubai had Easter brunch activity scheduled on a Saturday since Sunday is the start of work week here. We agreed to book an Easter brunch at The Market Place of JW Marriot Hotel. Brunch cost 300 Aed and we can use our Entertainer voucher of Buy 1 buffet and get 1 free, so that makes 150 each person, a good deal.
