Cucumber Appetizers

No comments:
I made some wonderful and healthy appetizer with just three ingredients, ready in less than 10 minutes. Your guest will love them

CUCUMBER + LABNEH + SMOKED SALMON


Slice cucumbers one inch thick, use a melon baller to scoop out the seeds in the middle for a crater. Chopped all cucumbers that you have scooped out and mixed with labneh. Fill each cucumber with your mix and top with shreds of smoked salmon.

You can always experiment and use something else to top your cucumbers with, tuna for example or cream cheese if you don't like labneh. The possibilities are endless.

A Quick Toast Post

No comments:
I'm into runny yolks recently and I'll have them at every opportunity.

I treat myself sometimes and prepare it at home for breakfast over the weekends.

Very quick and easy as quick as frying eggs yet gives you an inch of finesse.


You will need:

2 bread slices (whatever you prefer)
2 fresh eggs
some grated cheese
2 tbsp of oil
salt and pepper
herbs (optional)
frying pan
drinking glass

Place your glass up side down on to the bread, press down hard to take off the middle part of the bread.

Pan on to the stove to heat up, add oil and bread. Crack one egg on each bread, sprinkle some salt and pepper, top with grated cheese.

After couple of minutes, pop into the oven 180 degrees for another minute or until the cheese has melted, don't wait too long to remove it from the oven because our aim is to keep the yolks runny like this


Make some coffee and slice some fresh fruits and enjoy.

11 Places Worth Visiting in Fujairah

4 comments:
Our recent trip to Fujairah, the fifth largest Emirate of UAE saw us visiting historical sites and heritage areas. Watched some bull fighting in Gurfah area, checked out a new mall and paid homage to the city's Catholic church.

If you haven't seen rock mountains before, you will be in awe to see them on your way to the city.

Our first stop was the Fujairah City Center (1). It is located just before entering the city proper. Just like other City Centers, it is a one stop shop for everything, thus giving locals and expats alike a new shopping experience.

We got hungry on the way so we stop there for a quick lunch before setting off on our city adventure.

ESPRIT Spring Summer '15 Collection

No comments:
Esprit launched its new spring summer 2015 collection at a fashion show held at XL Beach Club, Al Habtoor Grand Beach Resort, Dubai. 

Like Guess, Esprit is one of the clothing brands I grew up with. It is just so nice to see the new collection first hand before it hits the stores. 

This year's Esprit Spring Summer collection is inspired by the laid back California style which is all about sharing, enjoying, and embracing community, family and friends. 


The Esprit Women Collection is big on black and white, working contemporary graphics together with stripes, color blocks, lace details, contrast piping and some reworked masculine shapes. You will also find feminine corps of military inspired garments like the romper above, mixing very functional styles and details with more romantic silhouettes in lively shades of green plus white and beige.

Esprit also got accessories to compliment your look. They have roomy bucket bags, large cross-body bags, backpacks and shopper. This season will also see bags come alive in stripes, hand painted flowers, paisleys and modern ethno patterns, often accented with embellishments including gem stones, fringes, tassels, printed faux leather and handcrafted details.

On the other hand, the Esprit Men Casual collection is inspired by real vintage clothing, easygoing clothes with a soft and informal attitude that nonetheless standout from the look-alike crowd.

Esprit have 12 stores in GCC with 3 stores in UAE at Deira City Center, Al Ghurair Center Dubai and Marina Mall Abu Dhabi.

ARTSPACE Gallery Opens Mouneer Al Shaarani's Calligraphy Exhibit

No comments:
When I was invited in the launch of the calligraphy exhibit of the famous calligraphy artist Mouneer Al Shaarani opening at ARTSPACE Gallery in DIFC, I didn't have a second thought even I couldn't read or write in Arabic.

I know it wouldn't be hard for me to appreciate Arabic art as I always try to see things beautifully in everything.


HE Mohammad Ahmed Al Murr, Speaker of Federal National Council of the UAE inaugurated the opening ceremony attended by VIP guests, friends and followers of the artist including the media.


Features of a Woman 2011
The exhibition featured some of the most acclaimed works of Mouneer Al Shaarani who is a celebrated calligrapher, designer and writer, living and working in Syria. Describing his works, Al Shaarani said they are the “outcome of pondering over the rich calligraphic heritage with a critical eye. "I endeavored to produce a calligraphic work which does not depend on borrowing from other arts, and it doesn't derive its aesthetics but only from pairing between general aesthetic bases of the arts, and the essential aesthetic characteristics of Arabic calligraphy. I chose some extremely ancient calligraphy styles as Kairouan Kufi, square Kufi, and Almashriki Kufi. I studied the characteristics of each style, developed their letters, completed their shortcomings, amended their ratios and reformulated them structurally and synthetically with modernistic logic.”






The Mouneer Al Shaarani exhibition show will be in exhibit until 16th May at ARTSPACE Dubai Bldg 3 The Gate Village Podium Level, Dubai International Financial Center. For more information about the artist, please contact ARTSPACE at 04 323 0820 or send email to sossy@artspace-dubai.com
