Halal Travel Guide to New York City

Ah, New York City, one of the greatest cities in the world. It’s the city that never sleeps. The city that has been in countless movies and sitcoms. It is the epitome of the American dream. With a city so big and has so much jam packed into it, it can be daunting to try […]

A Weekend Getaway to Chewton Glen, Hampshire

Back in March, BW and I fancied a short getaway. Having already flown two flights (plus two returns) with a baby, we thought to spare ourselves the hours of torture up in the air and have a staycation in the UK instead. We needed somewhere close by, familiar, and of course, child friendly, but having […]

HGAT Guide to Hurghada, Egypt

Last March, Mum hit a major milestone – the big six zero. Crikey, where did the time go!? To say thank you for being such an awesome mother, all the siblings decided to get their clans together and surprise Mum to a short but sweet family holiday. Big problem, where could we go that would […]

Galle Sri Lanka

HGAT Guide to Galle Sri Lanka

Last year, BW and I struggled to find a holiday destination. As we were heading to Dubai for Sole DXB, we decided Mumbai would be ideal for a few days (read my halal food guide here) but still had a few days leftover. Hmm, where could we go that had a beach as well as […]

HGAT Guide to Costa Rica

I know, I know, it has taken me forever to write about Costa Rica. However, I was thiiiis close to not publishing as it was a really special trip for BW and I. It was one of those holidays that bring back such warm and fuzzy memories, and although we’ve enjoyed all our travels, this […]

HGAT Guide to Ningxia, China

Last month, an invitation popped into my inbox informing me that I had been officially invited to Ningxia in China. What, China? Wow, these spam emails are getting really good. It was only until I made BW check that evening, where I found out that not only was it legit (a new partnership between Emirates […]

HGAT Guide to Nice

Having visited Paris last month, I thought it was time I wrote about the beautiful city of Nice in South of France. Last year, BW and I took a quick weekend trip to Nice over the last weekend of August. It was so beautiful that my parents decided to follow us there a week later […]

HGAT Guide to Paris

Who here hates cliches? Me! BW has been wanting to take me to Paris for ages now, but I’ve kept on refusing. Everyone goes there – be it for their 3 day, 2 month, or 25th wedding anniversary, romantic valentine day date, proposals etc. – everyone but me. This year, however, he tricked me. His […]
