one year

Movie Friday

Since there were no new good movies the past few weeks and we've seen all the watchable films, we decided to watch Horrible Bosses in Dubai Mall for few laughs. The jokes were old, but it never gets old hee hee whatever that means :D

Dinner @ Pushkin

There was only one table occupied when we arrived around 10ish for an afterthought dinner. The restaurant is relatively new, the interior is still so clean and white. I haven't seen any reviews and they're not even listed in TimeOutDubai yet. I asked for Kompot, cos I didn't see it on the drinks menu, they only had Apple and Cherry, I chose the latter one. Kompot is basically just fruit boiled in water with sugar, it was sweet and refreshing, I loved it! I also took a sip of Kvas, my manfriend said its a non alcoholic drink made from black bread, ergo the floating bits and pieces of black crumbs...yes "bread" :D it kinda tasted like beer to me...and I hate beer. When my Beef Stroganoff arrived, I wasn't really sure what to expect, I didn't really know what it's supposed to look like as there are so many variations. Mine arrived on a bed of Creamy Mashed Potato with Pickles on top, not very big on presentation but it was delish, so it was a winner to me. My late order of dumplings finally arrived while on my second glass of Kompot. It was just like any other dumplings nothing special. My total experience was great and it would be on my choices of resto if I'm in the area.

Pushkin is located in Amwaj 4, JBR - Tel: 04 427 0268

Spa Zen @ Radisson Royal Hotel

Been looking forward to our massage appointment, and when it was finally happening I never wanted it to end. I just wished I could be pampered like that forever! We got full body scrub and head to toe massage in a room, peeking when there's a chance ha ha! It was divine, I could use that kind of pampering every other day :D

After our massage appointment, we were supposed to have an Asian dinner in Habtoor. We arrived at the hotel quarter past 7 and the restaurant is not open until 8. So we had to sit outside and wait in temperature of over 40°C. Thankfully we didn't need to sit very long, the waitress ushered us inside the restaurant to the upper level, which is the smoking and sheesha area. She handed us the menu and to his surprise, the restaurant changed their menu to international. It didn't become a big issue we just went on and ordered our drinks, Iced Tea for him (cos he's driving) and Sangria for me :D steak for our mains, T-bone with Mushroom Sauce and Mashed for him and Rib-eye with Green Pepper Sauce and Mashed for moi, both medium-well. He got Smoked Salmon for starters and mine was Chocolate Cake (without Orange Sauce). I have been craving for a decent chocolate cake for maybe a week now. Their Salmon was so good, it felt really nice on my tongue, to think that I don't really like Salmon, especially when its raw. My Chocolate Cake, was dome-shaped and more like mousse with a little bit of sponge, covered with chocolate, it wasn't very sweet and not really rich, I finished it off :D Our Steak came about 10 mins after we finished our starter and dessert. I was starving and I really thought I could finish off the whole steak but I couldn't, shame!

skulls and wings

I can't recall exactly when my passion for skulls and wings started. But my  sister had an influence for my ardent love of skulls, cos when I used to peek on her accessory box all I found were studded leather cuffs and lots of scary bits and pieces of skulls. Wings...well I've always loved fairies, butterflies and angels for as long as I can remember O:)

Here are some skulls and wings that I wish I can have! :D

They're all from Alexander McQueen...his skulls and wings creations will live forever...

I don't think I would be comfortable with this ring, but its pretty to look at!
I would love this bag in yellow!

FOODIES || 800-Salad

Had a wonderful dinner last night at Saladicious. I’ve visited this resto number of times and they never failed to disappoint me, except for the absence of their oh-so-delightful-black-breads sometimes, last night was one of those times *gutted*, guess they ran out of ink again. 

Much to my surprise, my companion was ready to order as I was just starting to flip thru the menu. I asked him if he already knew what he was gonna have before we even reached the place and he said yes same thing that he had the last time, so there you go. I introduced him to this place months ago and he liked it, and when he likes the food that he first had he would always order them. I didn’t want to keep him waiting cos that was his first meal of the day...and no he wasn’t fasting, just been so busy during the day. Instead of having my dessert first like our last visit, I decided to have Beef Tataki for starters (cos I’ve already had Oreo Chocolate Custard Pie which I made at home with the little monsters before heading out). We both ordered Saladicious Steak for mains, he wanted his medium done with no blood and mashed potato *me huge smiles* while he had a little conversation with the waiter. I ordered mine medium well with sauteed veg., for drinks he chose fresh Pomegranate and I just ordered cold still water.

While I was savouring my tender rare beef and fresh greens, my companion was not very happy that he ordered Salmon Carpaccio, he was thinking of Sashimi Salad but he asked for the wrong Salmon. Oh well, he finished off his plate before I did, so I guess that wasn’t so bad. When we got our mains, again he wasn’t very pleased to see a wee bit of blood in his steak, but at the end of the meal his plate was clean just so I wouldn’t laugh at him :D Happy with my steak but couldn’t finish it off as always, so I had it to go.

Can’t wait to go back to Saladicious again and take my sweet time going thru their menu. Or better yet, go to their website before visiting since they have their menu online…I wish I had known that :D
