Rolling Stones at Yas Island | Abu Dhabi

rolling-stones-in-dubai-uae

The only part of Abu Dhabi that I’ve been to is in Yas Island. The first time is when we went to Ferrari World with my cousins where I nearly died of heart attack after boarding the fastest roller coaster in the world!

Yas Island is one of the must-see destinations in Abu Dhabi. It is a massive place ideal for family that seeks leisure time. You will find amusement parks just like Ferrari world, Du Arena where big concert takes place, Yas Links where golfers can be found, Yas Marina circuit where F1 and Grand Prix are hosted and the recently opened massive waterpark the Yas Waterworld and etc.

Just a week ago we were together with the thirty thousand crowd who witnessed the legendary Rock N’ Roll band. The Rolling Stones! I am not much of a big fan but I’ve known them ever since and the thought of seeing and hearing them live makes the hair of the back of my neck stand.

Imagine they started playing and got famous the same era as The Beatles around 1964 and now it’s 2014 and they’re all still kicking ass on the stage which is totally exceptional.

These are some of the songs that the crowd have loved:

  • Paint It Black
  • Shine a Light
  • Gimme Shelter
  • Satisfaction

Where to stay in Boracay |Dave’s Straw Hat

For a few minutes of walk from where we were dropped off, we then found Dave’s Straw Hat.

Beachfront Boracay Island Philippines

It was a quiet afternoon in Boracay when we arrived. The lady receptionist greeted us  without me first introducing myself (impressive). She already knew and assisted us to our room. She came back after 5 minutes handing us our “welcome drinks”. It’s a frozen lemon iced tea drink. Just perfect after the long journey!

I was very pleased with how it looked so much nicer than in the pictures. I chose the place because of the reasonable price and has been voted as Travelers’ Choice  in Tripadvisor. All the reviews are good so that makes me feel confident with my choice .

Our room is a standard type for 1,950  pesos per night. It has one double bed, TV, toilet and a box locker.

The best thing is that our sheets and towels are clean all the time. You don’t need to ask them they will just take care of it for you.

For our 6-day stay at Boracay we were very confident that our stuff is secure.

Dave’s Straw Hat’s location is perfect for people who seeks quiet and relaxing place away from the noisy area known as Station 1 and 2. It’s quite a long walk (15 mins)  to the center of Boracay where you see D’ Mall – but it’s a holiday so you’re suppose to be out and about right?

Tip: Make sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment.

I’ll surely stay on this place again if ever I’ll visit Boracay.

Sugaholic Cup Cakes | Karama | Dubai

Sugaholic Cupcakes Dubai

I was browsing through my old Instagram photos and found this cute little pugcakes that I received last birthday from my dearest.

Before Sugaholic was formed, the two sisters Sneha Bhatia and Ravisha Bhatia from India treated it as a passion and hobby. Later on by the strong demand and  encouragement of their friends who got so gaga over their delicious cakes decided to open a business and now became one of the cutest and trendy bakeshop in Karama.
