Pregnancy cravings are a thing guys. Not the “oh I quite fancy that”, but a full-blown “I need XYZ now or I will eat you” kind of craving. Mine were relatively subdued and definitely unhealthy. French fries (vegetables), ice-cream (calcium), and sugary cereals (fibre) were my daily requirements, but sometimes the cravings became interesting. Eggs […]

CHIK'N

CHIK’N

A couple of weeks back, I decided to take a step on the scales for the first time since my delivery. Mind you, almost 9 weeks had passed so a good chunk must have melted off. I was SHOCKED, no, APPALLED at the number on the weighing scale – I clearly still have a whopping […]

MAISON BAB

Maison Bab

I realise it’s been a while since I’ve posted a restaurant review, although it doesn’t feel that long to me. You see, I had a baby a couple of months ago for those of you who didn’t know, and it feels like time has just blurred together in my baby brain. But, I would never […]

PEKING GARDEN

Peking Garden

Without knowing it, BW and I have always been connected one way or another throughout our lives. From being at the same wedding functions to even living around the corner from one another, we never knew each other existed until the day we were introduced. Which brings me to Peking Garden, our local Chinese restaurant […]

TWO BUNS

Two Buns

A few weeks before Ramadan started, BW and I decided to go visit all our friends in the suburbs before his parents came to visit. As we were going to be in the area, we thought we would check out Two Buns, a burger joint that has been keen for me to visit them for […]

Ramo Ramen

As I sit here writing this post, it has dawned on me that I am 40 weeks and 1 day pregnant, and there is no sign of this child showing up anytime soon. Sure, I could have been a little more active during this pregnancy; exercise, swimming, walking, yoga, the works but no, I chose […]

Brigadiers

Having lived in Central London for the last four years, I have decided I never want to leave. I love it here way too much and when the time comes to settle down in the suburbs, BW will have to pry me away from my beloved place. Everything is so readily available, convenient, and close […]

Ishbilia

Since becoming pregnant, Lebanese food has been my jam, to put it eloquently. Well, just the hummus beiruty, to be precise. So much so, that my Uber Eats history is just a list of Lebanese restaurants located near me with one order: hummus beiruty, and maybe the mint lemonade too. I’ve been on a search […]

Mamak Don

Although there are plenty of halal restaurants to be discovered, I always find myself going back to the same old places. These establishments are ones that I know I can rely on for having a good meal, visit after visit. Sadly, this list of mine has slowly dwindled down from numerous restaurants to perhaps three, […]

Etles Uyghur

Last November, I was invited out to Ningxia in Northern China. I can see you guys rolling your eyes thinking, “we know, you haven’t stopped reminding us!”, but it was truly one of the best trips of my life. Asides from being mesmerised by the landmarks and the ways of the Hui Muslims out there, […]
