sweet tooth

Yes, call me that, but I just most of the time can not control my needing for sweets.
Here are/were some of my favorites (I'm trying to cut on these as I need to get back on a desired weight ;))

A healthier option of course is those fruits rich in Vitamin C and has Anti-oxidant. You can usually catch me in blackberries and strawberries now :)
I'm not trying to sound like a very "I watch what I eat" person, but sometimes when your body is telling you that things are not the same as they used to, it's time to think out of the box and move that lazy a**.

I could not say, it's a love/hate relationship with chocolates and sweets. I'm sure anybody or should I say any girl could agree that "giving-in" sometimes is the only way to go.
I'm not saying that girls should follow me, this is just me. But I really don't indulge on that much sweets anymore, afterall, I think I'm used to not think or crave too much of them any longer :)
I just give in say, once or twice a month- just that.
Given that, I would love to share some sweets for my sweets :)

featured- cupcakes available at Dubai Mall (click the pix to for the link see page 112)

My daughter's Cupcakes for her 4th Birthday soiree! Delectable!

BR! Me and my daughter's fave, be it ice cream cake or just ice cream on cone, you name it, we lurve it! lol!

Ok, Candylicious is the most popular candy station/store in the UAE, could you blame us for that? They have ice cream, cupcakes, and the never-ending chocolates of different sizes and figures, It's the chocolate haven, my kind of place ;)
Here's a pic of me and my friend Maan about to pay our ordered caramel popcorn, it's yum! Actually those popcorn brings back childhood memories, not that we have the same brand, but it somehow tasted the same. We would usually have those before Christmas just roaming around the metro.

I would love to try these though

they look too good to eat, plus the shop looks a bit intimidating. too fancy eh ;)

but for healthier option, I settle for these

and for-the-so-much

Patchi Chocolate's the best!

Are some of these sweets ring a bell to you?
What's your kind of sweet?
I would love to try new things, maybe just a bite or two, promise, I'll be in control :) Believe me when I say that, I have much self-control now.

The pen is mightier than the sword
Edward Bulwer-Lytton

I really like to you write.
But I noticed as the time pass, I'm not the same eager person from before. And quite frankly, I can't write interesting happenings anymore. I dont think that I write well in my blog. I only could count in one hand some stories I shared that's worth reading. I used to love to write. I remember when I was in gradeschool and highschool, that's when I can't believe that I wrote something. And wrote it well.
I remember that I also read and wrote poems.
But may be it's actually true, once you forget or does not practice about something-that you do well or should I say something you have passion about, it would most likely blew away.
I don't think i still have the skill to write well. To make simple experience appear interesting in my blog. I honestly envy those who're able to do that. It feels like every bits of experience they have are far worth out of the ordinary. It sound, like, a distant past. I'm not saying my life is less appealing, I actually have plenty of things to share- but I guess, I don't know how to put them to writing.
But still I can't deny that I love reading, well most of us love that :)

Maybe it goes with age.
There's a time when you want to pour and burst your reaction, emotions to something.
And then there will come a time when you will just want to listen and be silent for a time.
May be that is one form of maturity.
You stop mumbling or you take a pause and just notice what surrounds you.
Afterall everything is not about you.

Cheers to being 34!

* I know it's kinda late coz I had my Bday for like 3months back, it takes a while to getting used to ;) besides I still feel like I'm 24 ;P*

During the Holy Month of Ramadan, there are Hospitality tents just about everywhere. Here for one- can be found in Mercato. They have someone who plays an instrument and someone who hands you moroccan coffee (they say, it's strong!). I find it very nice to listen and just take a time to sit with them, there are also free dates on the table, it's very middle eastern, but I kinda like it. The tent is not exclusive for Muslims, everyone is invited, that's the true spirit :)

And after that day of fasting, one should drink. Found these at carrefour.

fancy a drink?

or Indulge with some Chocolate cake, it's very moist inside- a chocolate overload with a bit of kick from the Strawberry. We had this for free (the perks!) at PF Changs in Mirdiff City Center.
PF Changs has amazing food! And they would teach you to make sauce from 3 types of liquid, it's just awesome! We had Philips Lemon Chicken and Mongolian Beef and some Dimsum (sorry, I was not able to take photos of the food, but I tell you they're gastronomic!) No wonder, the store's slogan is, "the best Chinese restaurant in U.S" I hope i got that one right ;)

I call this The Decadent Chocolate overload Cake with a kick. Yum!
{I know it's sinful, but I guess it's ok to have some once in a while, don't worry I didn't eat much of it ;) }

and when it's the morning after, it will be Fasting again. So when your head is feeling a bit low or havin' some ache, do some massage. It will help you throughout the day.

Innovative Head massager found at Virgin Store.

Eid is just around the corner! I wonder where we will be heading? But it's hard to say, because Eid will just be over the weekend and then we're back on the usual timings.
May be we'll just dine outside again.
I remember last year we were at Hilton RAK.
But just the same it's nice to have Ramadan Timing once in a while.


BON ANNIVERSAIRE to my Lovely Daughter Jasmine Eirene!
She turn 4 today!
God bless you sweetheart, may you have the desires of your heart.
Mom and Dad loves you so much!

beautiful things

Currently looking at pretty things on the net, they make my day ☺
Just because of the girly-girly stuffs I'm reading, I think I'm into white and pink ♥
Just this post is not about colors, but this idea of trendy-ing your furniture (thus your home) is just awesome!

on the table

the duvet, on the bead

guess it's not only us, ladies, who can get to wear these ;)
even our dining table and bed can be fashionable and trendy too..
(I'm just currently blogging things in fashion, ID and the likes, I feel different, lol!)
