Yalla Momos in Karama

Fried Momos

After blogging so much about shops in Karama you probably are convinced that this place is a haven for foodies. So here’s a another treat for all the Dubaian’s out there.

Let me share to you this very cute Al fresco dining place of Yalla Momos. We have been a happy customer since they have opened ages ago and felt bad to do a review this late.

From the time they opened until they have renovated the place people can’t just get enough of their delicious momos!

Momo is a famous street food in Nepal and is widespread throughout India.  It’s similar to Chinese dumpling that has varieties of filling. You can get vegetable, cheese, chicken, beef, and mushroom momos.

I would like to thank Abby and Jai for their lovely treat. It’s their first time to try momos and they really enjoyed it! Abby actually have craving for it now.

There should always be Way-way noodles (careful it’s very spicy) on our order which is a perfect combination with Momos.

Yalla Momos is located opposite Bikarnevala (4B Street) behind Park Regis Hotel.

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.

My First Dubai Standard Chartered Participation

dubai marathon run

Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon was held last Friday the 24th at Al Sufouh Road near Madinat Jumeirah.

Participating in this kind of event is very rewarding. For some, they might think it’s a waste of time but I really enjoyed watching and being in the crowd of people who are trying their best to finish the race.

I may have joined the 3k Fun Run but hey it’s a good start right? I’m dreaming of seeing myself competing for the complete marathon.  Ha!

So the event turned out very great. I’m so glad to be there although I got sore all over my legs it was all worth it. At some point, I thought I will collapse but I forced myself to think that it will be a shame to not finished a 3k run. hahaha

Seeing kids running with their parents matching their pace makes my heart lift up. Others have raised their banners to show support with their family members. You see, joining this kind of event builds physical and mostly social bond with your family and friends and that’s what makes it very important.

I believe that running will help me in doing something that will make me a better and happier person.

So if I can do a 3k so can you!
