The Sushi Class

My first faux pas was to violently try to remove the clear wrap from the bamboo mat. Conditioned to unpack everything within my reach like a zombie in a trance, and frustrated that the clear wrap was getting the best of me, I clinched my teeth to apply the death grip and rip it off like my life depended on it until a quiet soft-spoken sous chef whispered Madam, it is supposed to be there.

Smoking Doll

All I needed was a smoke machine and I would’ve been ready for a fiery fan dance popularized during the Joseon Dynasty. What makes this place unusual and refreshing is the vibe. Smoking Doll is Asian exotic — not Asian kimono with cherry blossoms.

A Cup of Gold

Meet the world-famous gold cappuccino which is served at one of the most beautiful hotels on earth. The Emirates Palace is known as going well beyond 5 stars this luxury hotel sits directly on the beach and is a very popular tourist destination. The Emirates Palace is breath-takingly beautiful and not only showcases Arabian architecture but encapsulates Arabian culture.

Angelina – Yas Mall

In addition to Angelina’s world-famous tearoom serving artistically created desserts that epitomize the French way of living, Angelina also offers a full breakfast, snack, lunch and dinner menu in the same luxuriously indulgent fashion as in Paris. During our visit we were graciously accommodated by a full staff that was eager for us to enjoy the Angelina experience so much so that we began to feel like we stepped out of a Renoir painting.

Home Strange Home

The problem is you will move home a changed person. You may not realize just how much you have changed but you left as one person and you will return as another. Here’s a few reasons why moving home will be strange.

Dining Around Yas Mall

It was veggie art on a plate. I wanted to eat it so badly but I had to stare at it for awhile because it was so stinking pretty — I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. In the end it did taste as good as it looked but the highlight of dining experience was the best baba ganoush I HAVE EVER TASTED IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!
