Brunchiamo! at Spaccanapoli, Crowne Plaza, Abu Dhabi
My friend and I were invited to enjoy an Italian brunch at Spaccanapoli. I came with an empty stomach that day but that still did not prepare me enough for all the dishes coming our way. Newly launched 2 months ago, their Brunchiamo! on the weekend features a set menu with unlimited orders and drinks for AED 200 net for soft & AED 300 net for alcoholic drinks.
What is Ramadan?
Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar. Muslims believe that this month is when the Quran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed. It is the most Holy month in the calendar and during this month, Muslims do not consume food or water between their dawn and sunset prayers. In the U.A.E., everyone (including non-Muslims) are expected to refrain from drinking and eating in public areas as well.

Centro Barsha by Rotana, Dubai, UAE
How lovely it was to stay at Centro Barsha by Rotana over the weekend. We were attending a concert in the area and had plans on doing a bit of shopping. Did you know Centro Barsha is only 500 metres away from the Mall of the Emirates and steps from the Metro?! What a perfect location. Although not in the main city center, Centro Barsha is a popular choice among locals, residents and tourists to Dubai.
Apart from its convenient location, I loved staying at Centro Barsha for it’s modern stylish accommodations and affordability. Read on further about my stay.
