Food Friday #3

My friends and I do not need an excuse to go out for a meal. We are screenshot_20190526-152406_video-player4907398162818729776..jpgquick to jump on deals and what better time for deals than Ramadan?! There are more Iftar deals than days within the month of Ramadan with which to enjoy them all. Keeping that in mind we must be selective with the offers that we pursue. The girls and I decided to try something different from the usual Iftar buffets. We chose a trending eatery called

Burger & Lobster. My first experience with B&L was at Taste of Dubai 2018 where I tried one of their lobster rolls….. yummm–oooo!!!! 

The Iftar deal is a set menu that includes 3 courses and a soft drink. It’s pretty much a sampler of the main items on the menu.

Daily soup for the first course. We had a mushroom soup served with a slice of toast. The main course was a mini cheeseburger (which wasn’t that mini), a shrimp roll, half-pound lobster served steamed or grilled and a side of fries. The dessert was a slice of tres leches. I’ve never been a huge fan of tres leches because of the squishy consistency but this one was just right amount of moistness and sweetness. 🙂

Of course, here are the pics because what’s the point of Foodie Friday if it’s not the food porn!




Foodie Friday #1

Are you craving a Caribbean feel, with upbeat music and bright colors?! Then Ting Irie is what you’ve been missing. The only thing that could make this slice of Jamaica even better would be some sand in my toes and the smell of the beach.

I had the pleasure of enjoying the Friday Brunch and was pleasantly surprised by the affordable prices. The set menu is full of tropical favorites like Rice and Peas, Curry Goat and individual Rum Cakes. Honestly, I was tapping out at the main course but miraculously I found some room for the desserts!

There’s always room for dessert!

Enjoy the pics foodies!!! Sorry if it makes you hungry! 😉

4 Teaching Abroad Lessons

The 2017-2018 school year has officially started here in the UAE and in the short weeks, I’ve been back to work I’ve learned a few lessons about teaching abroad. In this post, I’ll share with you four lessons I’ve learned so far.

1. Be Patient

I was one of about 500 that arrived as a new hire in the month of August even after many had been received in July. Talk about an influx of new teachers who needed to be trained, provided with professional work numbers, placed into their subject area positions throughout six emirates and overall guided through transitioning into a new country. Doesn’t come as a surprise when processes and procedures are delayed. It’s only natural to become frustrated and even easier to fall into a negative mindset of complaining.
