Who knew a 4-hour flight could get you to heaven?

Well, that’s exactly how long a flight to the Maldives takes, believe it or not. This tiny country in South Asia has been revered as the perfect tropical, honeymoon, family or even a solo getaway destination. With idyllic bright blue seas, being surrounded by nothing but the beauty of nature, and rejuvenating around the waves of the ocean.

A Maldivian escape is one everyone should experience, I mean, just looking at photos of it…

Wake up to paradise, every single morning

1. There’s a secluded resort at the north of Haa Alifu Atoll that is unlike any other

An escape isn’t an escape, without a beautiful 75-minute journey, seeing all the other places the Maldives has to offer before reaching your place of stay. This lush spot is surrounded by all the glory of nature, with lush vegetation, birds chirping away and natural sand between your toes.

Can you picture it?

2. Whether you’re with boo, a family member, friends or alone- different room or villa types are at your disposal

Stretch away to a room with direct beach access, or yawn at the sign of the sunrise- there are over 84 villas and suites to choose from at JA Manafaru and all with their own private plunge or infinity pool.

That’s right.

3. For the stressed minds, invigorate your senses with either a spa day, a facial, or experience an ayurvedic massage right at the comfort of your own resort

Because, who can say no to a 60-minute massage?

You deserve this.

4. Yogis will get a kick out of a fab vinyasa sesh by the beach

Start the day with yoga and end with a sunset meditation moment- you can probs already sense the rejuvenation.

JA Manafaru has daily yoga sessions that’ll make you nama-stay

5. Families won’t be bored thanks to a specifically-designed area just for the children

There are fun hideaway spots like CoolZone and ChillZone, both manned by team members of JA, with one being a dedicated play area for the kids while the other is a trendy relaxation hub for the teens.

Something for everyone.

6. You’ll never be bored thanks to the number of watersport activities around

Parasail, kite surf, jet ski or even snorkel and discover the underwater mysticism of the Maldivian coral reefs.

There are turtle quest adventures and even dolphin cruises available too.

7. Feast like a royal- there are 7 different types of restaurants at JA Manafaru

Refresh your palate by sipping on cocktails on the over-water deck or at JA Manafaru’s pool bar, or try out fresh, Maldivian seafood, all under one resort. If you’re into grapes, there’s a lush ‘wine cave’ with an extensive selection from vineyards around the world.

From fancy to casual dining, eat your heart out.

8. After working so hard, you deserve to chase sunsets like these…

9. It’s totally sustainable- which means you’re being one with the planet while you explore its many stunning attributes

Giving back can come in many forms, and JA Manafaru best defines this, thanks to their ban on the use of plastic bottles for water across the resort. Instead, JA Manafaru has its own glass bottling plant.

Not to mention, they also have an in-house marine guide/biologist that gives talks on the marine life and Maldivian eco-systems, while protecting its ecosystem through CSR initiatives like beach clean-ups. Adorable!

10. There’s an upcoming holiday (perfect timing!)

Did you know a flight from Dubai to the Maldives is only four hours away?

Live out your Maldivian dream!

What are you waiting for?

There are 84 villas & suites including 3 luxury residences- giving options for every type of traveller looking to escape.

Think of a carnival in Cuba in the 1950s and your mind immediately conjures images of dancing in the streets, big bright colours, infectious live music on street corners, and, of course, delish street food, right?!

Well, a Dubai brunch is recreating all those vibes and then some and it’s the fun Friday party you want to be at.

Set across the bustling resto and sprawling terrace at Asia de Cuba, at The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi, this new Friday brunch has serious 1950s Cuba vibes and we are here for it!

This will be a Friday carnival like no other

It’s terrace season right now in Dubai, so shake out your brightest outfit, book a table on the terrace, and come prepared for a good time.

Expect a fun crowd, live entertainment, plenty of food and great vibes!

Costing AED345, it’s also worth noting this brunch is FREE for all kids under 12, which is a brilliant incentive for parents, considering so many other brunch spots just do free for under 5 years old.

Samba your way through a whole host of exquisite food stations

Asia de Cuba has a sibling restaurant in New York and it’s famous for its Chino-Latino cuisine.

This place has an AH-MAYZING sushi menu, plus Peking duck dishes that will change your life. Expect all those and a whole lot more (do NOT leave without trying the Mexican doughnuts with caramel & Thai chilli chocolate) at this Friday brunch.

The important bits:

When? Fridays from 12:30pm to 4:30pm

How much? AED345 per person, kids under 12 go free

Where? The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi/ Asia De Cuba restaurant

A terrace, shisha, unlimited chicken wings nights, (find tangier wings in Dubai, we’ll wait) unlimited dim sum nights, unlimited drinks, weekend pool access…

These are just some of the reasons you should scratch your plans and make room for Aloft Me’aisam.

Located in Dubai Production City, whether you’re looking for a pool day, a local family resto or plates piled high with delish food… there is a restaurant or a deal there to suit you. Curious? Erm, obvs!

Check out City Limits and its brand new menu and scroll even further for three seriously good deals, that are worth your hard-earned dirhams.

City Limits is a local family resto with an outdoor terrace that’s perfect for the winter months

And it’s got a new menu that screams SOUL food, people! We are living for the coconut prawns (AED49) but there is so much on this menu worth tucking into. So, go forth, order lots, take it home and eat like a king for days. The ‘not so average salad,’ delish mains, creamy alfredo and mushroom pasta as good as your mom would make, and delish dessert options that you WILL make room for.

Um kk, so you know the menu looks delish, you know the terrace is fab but that’s not all…

This spot also has a shisha menu, and if there’s anything better than good shisha on a winter evening in Dubai, we want to hear about it.

3 events at the W XYZ bar you should save for a night you’re looking for a good time, without breaking the bank

Wing lovers make room! There is unlimited wings, I repeat, “unlimited wings” every Monday. You get all the wings you can handle, (four flavours: garlic parmesan, tangy tamarind, BBQ and buffalo) PLUS unlimited hops for AED149 per person. Get in!

When? Mondays 8pm to 10pm

As the week goes on, it only gets better! Dim Sum Feast EVERY Wednesday gets you unlimited dumplings and Asian-inspired cocktails (Singapore sling, anyone?!) for …wait for it…AED99 per person!

And it’s not *just* weeknights folks.

Lazy Friday Breakfast gets you an extended breakfast buffet with soft drinks and pool access for AED89 per person from 11.30am to 2.30pm. So THIS is how people afford pool days every weekend!

Everyone has that one scent they’re known for, that’ sone of the things that make perfumes more than just a spray to have us smelling good. As Mona Kattan, founder of Kayali fragrances says, it’s a bookmark to a moment in time. And if you’re a perfume lover, you’ll almost always recall a memory based on the scent of a fragrance- it all differs and it’s quite mystical.

Kayali, meaning ‘my imagination’ in Arabic, is Mona Kattan’s layer-able, niche fragrance released recently but it is everything that Mona (and a lot of other perfume connoisseurs in the region) would go for.

Layering is a huuuuge thing in the Middle East, and Mona’s first batch of fragrances are perfect for the concept.

Mona has shared the vital tools all perfume wearers should know

Rule #1 Spray on all your pulse points

Anywhere there’s a heartbeat, spray it on AND do not rub.

Rubbing your wrists, as much as it has been revered as ‘best practice’, won’t make the perfume stick to your skin longer.

However, spritzing 1-2 times on your wrists, elbows, the base of the throat, below your earlobes- since your body’s heat will intensify the fragrance.

Rule # 2 Store your fragrances the right way

Keep them away from the sun and somewhere around 21 degrees to keep them from getting ruined.

Key tip: A fridge not at a freezing temp can make them last a lot longer!

Rule #3 Know your notes so you can layer your scents better

Experimentation is key.

Mona says it’s also best to keep a stronger scent as your base, for an example: an oud scent then layer the lighter notes on top. This also helps keep the perfume last longer.

Rule #4 Spray your perfume into your hairbrush

…it makes the perfume last even longer throughout the day!

We love your shelfie @dearmakeupdiary 💕

A post shared by KAYALI (@kayali) on

Rule #5 Use your fragrance to shift your mood

Different scents can improve or enhance whatever mood you’re in.

Rose-scented oil perfume layered with a vanilla base for a loving, calm mood? Yes.

Rule #6 Gift a perfume to a friend

…Cus you’ll be adding a bookmark to a time in their lives.

No better gift than one filled with nostalgia and memories.

So he may be a world-famous footballer, but in another lifetime, Wayne Rooney may just have made it in the music industry.

The legendary footballer, who’s about to join Derby in 2020, was chilling at Cove Beach on Bluewaters with his wife Coleen on Tuesday night when he joined in an impromptu singing sesh, and you have to give him props for it!

Seriously… so many celebs would say no to this but he joined right in.

“Upgrade your car- get a new one.”

What would you reply to someone who hits you with a message like that, after seeing photos of the new car you have just purchased?

Emirati entrepreneur, Her Excellency Dr. Sara Al Madani, wasn’t going to take these comments lightly and decided to give her two cents on the matter. In a new TikTok video, she shared quite an inspiring ‘clap back’, if you will, about how her version of upgrading is through her soul, her inner peace and heart- and not through materialistic objects.

Sara has been working since she was 15 years old- when she first realised she had a knack for business

“Upgrade myself with a car? No, I upgrade my mind and heart.”

Watch the entire video below:

Dr. Sara is a successful abaya designer, investor, a serial entrepreneur and public speaker

…among many other things!

Yesterday, several reports announced how a handful of Dubai residents had already purchased tickets for flights to space via Virgin Galactic, the world’s first commercial airline for space.

The airline’s stand at the Dubai Airshow caught intrigue, and so did the price point for these tourist flights to space- expected to take place next year. Virgin Galactic, founded by Sir Richard Branson, is already prepping for its first set of commercial flights into space for the first time.

How much does it cost to travel to space?

But also, it’s space- and this would be one of the most historic things to ever take place, imagine getting a chance to experience a few minutes of weightlessness. Amazing!

Over 600 customers have signed up for these flights- from 60 different countries

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai,  was present during the unveiling of the event and signed the prototype for the spacesuits to be worn on the flights on Sunday. The Under Armour suit will include loads of safety features, as well as buttons to allow communications onboard the flight, space boots, a mission patch and space on the suit for your country’s flag.

We wonder who’ll represent the UAE once this flight takes off.

Only time will tell.

If you were driving around last night, you may have noticed Dubai’s highway monitors greeting neighbouring country Oman on the occasion of its National Day. It’s pretty exciting whenever it’s a GCC country’s national day because the way the rest the countries under the council show their brotherhood through celebrations is just done differently.

Such is the case when the towering Burj Khalifa lit up with an image of the Omani flag in honour of its National Day, observed on November 18.

This is Oman’s 49th National Day thus far!

UAE leaders have extended their greetings to Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said

In a tweet, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, greeted Sultan Qaboos bin Said of Oman on the occasion of Oman’s 49th National Day.

Everybody together now… “nahhhhhhhhh”.

If you love animals, and you’re a little bit of a romantic, this story will floor you.

On Friday afternoon, a love-struck resident got done on one knee at Green Planet, the tropical biodome in City Walk.

Kevin Sebastian (the groom to be) arranged the whole thing with the team, and planned out a special meet & greet with the resident sloth for Masha, his bride-to-be (*she said yes!) before the life-changing moment

Masha had no idea her life was about to change

Masha is from Sri Lanka and misses her tropical home, Green Planet was the closest thing to Sri Lanka Kevin could find, making this the No 1. proposal spot  – CAHHHUUTEE

Careem and the Roads and Transport Authority have announced big plans to get  3,500 bikes and 350 smart docking stations across Dubai, the first of its kind in the region and a big step toward making our fair city more cycle-friendly.

The kick-off date has yet to be announced, but over the next two years, expect 1750 bikes and 175 stations to be rolled out across Dubai. The number will be ramped up to 3500 bikes and 350 stations in five years.

From Al Qudra to Deira and in between, check out the map here

Dubai will soon become a lot more bike-friendly

Shout out to ride-hailing app Careem. If you’re already a user, you’ll know it’s super convenient and it’s amazing to see the app transfer its service to a form of transport that’s sustainable, as the city continues to grow.

But it also lets us in on the final know why all the A-list Hollywood actresses, Zoe Zaldana and Kate Hudson were in the Emirate just a few months back.

Residents were curious to see the three ladies roam around the souk, hinting at either a possible production taking place in Dubai or if it was merely a casual visit, some seven months back. 

Gwyneth Paltrow shared a ‘teaser trailer’ seemingly touring around a Dubai souk

…and we can’t wait to see the entirety of this clip or project, that’s in collaboration with Visit Dubai.

Let’s face it, Dubai is the centre of all epic nightlife parties.

Weekends, weekdays- unlike any other country in the region, you can pretty much say the party never stops. It just depends where you go, what days you go and what the vibe is, but the guarantee remains the same- there’s something for everyone.

And it’s always going to be unforgettable (cue Swae Lee’s voice)… 

So without further ado, here’s a compiled list of the 10 best clubs in Dubai this year (aka, sort yourselves out for the coming weekend)

How did Lovin Dubai choose the final list?

  • Finalists were selected from all across Dubai
  • Online reviews, previous media coverage and notable blogs were also included in the overall rating
  • The final list is subjective – if we’ve missed out on any must-try places across Dubai, please do let us know!
  • The brand’s social media audience and engagement were considered

10. The new Soho Garden

Although relatively new to the list, Lovin felt this needed a moment for 2019, since it’s introduction to the scene pretty much started out with a bang. Having launched just two weeks ago, the new Soho Garden nightclub had Ty Dolla Sign headline and the entire night was pretty much a banger!

Set at the Meydan location’s spacious rooftop area is the latest club to enter the winter scene. Don’t miss out on this one.

The new Soho Garden has hosts fabulous ladies nights on Wednesdays, mark it down, it’s ’bout to be the hottest new Wednesday night.

Where? Soho Garden, Meydan 

9. Mantis, DIFC

The only club in DIFC, Mantis has proven itself to be quite the dynamic little escape for a new club. Being one of the only locally created clubs in Dubai (aka, this was not brought from elsewhere but the UAE). Homegrown.

The best part about this secret escape is that there’s a night for every individual with a different taste?

Do you like your R&B, HipHop, House? There’s bound to be a night at Mantis specifically curated for you.

Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays are what this futuristic club is known for, so be there or be square. Oh, and did we mention? The ladies get free sushi and drinks (on the house) until 2 am on Friday nights. Winning!

When? Mantis, DIFC

8. 1 OAK

From New York to Dubai, this cosy indoor nightclub is regarded to as more of a ‘concert feel’ along with a club, by Google reviewers who have personally partied there. Many celebs will occasionally pop by, like Jason Derulo who made a  pit stop following a performance in Dubai sometime back. Although smaller in size, 1Oak definitely makes partygoers feel like they’re in the centre of the party and never not part of it.

Best nights to go: Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays

Where? 1 Oak, JW Marriot Marquis Hotel, Dubai

7. BOA

BOA Lounge & Club, located in central Sheikh Zayed Road, is the ultimate dark fantasy.

You walk in and already feel like you’re in a whole other country, different energy AND the most theatrical feel. Red-hued shades of light, streamers, and thought-out performers balance out the energy of the night. And who can forget the most iconic thing about getting to the floor where BOA is situated? I mean, that elevator? Talk about opulence.

Best nights for BOA: Fridays.

Where? BOA, V Hotel

6. Secret Room Dubai

This tiny little club’s name is just as it sounds, secretive. Open until 6 am, this is the go-to for the non-stop partygoers who want to make it until the sun rises. Told ya, Dubai’s nightlife is something else.

Make sure you reserve your spots or go earlier if you plan on doing walk-ins, because post-midnight, everyone’s trying to get into Secret Room. It’s not the most spacious, however; or well-ventilated but what it is, is a bubble of energy from the DJ to the bartenders, and every table you encounter.

Guess you’ll only know when you go, shh, it’s a secret- after all.

Not to mention, it’s also the only club in Dubai where you get to drive in a car. I mean…

Where? Secret Room, Five Palm Jumeirah 

5. Toyroom

Naughty Frank’s abode is the place to pump up some youthful energy!

This Hip-Hop and R&B location have easily become one of Dubai’s wildest spots, with eccentric graffiti, bright neon signs and an urban edge to it- that you just won’t get elsewhere. You walk in, you’re already dancing- that’s the incredible feeling Toyroom gives. Not to mention, once Frank the Bear enters and sh*t goes wild.

Rappers and singers have graced the stage of this nightclub where you’re guaranteed to leave feeling guilt-free.

You know it always goes down at Toyroom DXB.

Where? Toyroom, Meydan Racecourse

4. SKY2.0 Dubai

When you speak of Sky2.0, or if you’ve heard of the legend of this name- then you’ll know you’re about to engage in more than just dancing. Whether it be gawking at the incredibly talented performers and dancers, the extensive differences between the shows Sky put up compared to other clubs are not your average sway-and-move.

Streamers, party poppers, even tissue papers, and LED-lit foam noodles are handed to most clubbers throughout a night at Sky2.0, adding to the magical experience of it all. Imagine if you will, the very energy of Beirut’s parties brought to Dubai- and you get SKy2.0, its fabulous setting, stages and a huuuuuuuge space.

Where? Sky2.0, Dubai Design District

3. BASE Dubai

One thing’s always imminent at BASE, and it’s that it never stays the same.

A different night at BASE calls for a different occasion, a different atmosphere. Having Black Coffee perform one day can appeal to a certain group, while the likes Tyga and Trey Songz will also bring the house down, but don’t let it fool you. BASE also turns into a powerhouse for beat-thumping EDM, techno and experimental house on different nights.

Just gotta find your day.

Where? BASE Dubai, Dubai Design District 

2. Drais DXB

The outdoor, feel-good club, Drais is back for winter and its weekly line-up keeps getting better and better.

Just this last weekend, Davido was one of the performers, following Quavo’s appearance- a standard at this ‘beachy’ feel, LA-originated outdoor nightclub at Meydan. With a capacity of 2,500 people, fabulous table seatings, lavish bottle services, international DJs and recurring Hollywood performers usually coming for a visit- it’s no wonder, Drais has set a name for itself as one of the big venues in Meydan. This is simply something else.

Best nights: Fridays.

Where? Drais DXB, Meydan Racecourse

1. White Dubai

White Dubai remains at the top spot for most club reviews thanks to its already successful sister-club that originates from the party central of the Middle East. Considered an OG to the city, home to many partygoers, everyone knows that a night at White can just never go wrong.

It has remained consistent with its services, with bringing in the best of the best A-list performers and creating a familiar feeling of loyalty with its usual customers- that you just can’t say no to. Not to mention, the perfectly-set location of the club which means you see the city’s skyline from afar, yet the enriching green course of Meydan on the other side.

White Dubai will never go out of style.

Where? White Dubai, Meydan Racecourse

The change is coming.

Instagram has been testing ‘hidden likes’ which means that while YOU can see your like count, other users can only see it in multiples of hundreds, or thousands.

The pilot proved successful in popular IG markets including, Australia, Brazil, Canada and Ireland and now it looks like the test has gone global, with some UAE users noting the regular ‘like count’ is now absent on their feed. Priti Malik, from the Kris Fade Show, woke up to find her account had been altered and the team brought up the discussion, will this update affect how you use Instagram?

Accounts are being tested globally

“We’re continuing our test to learn from the global community’

Creators (read: influencers) might be worried, but Instagram hasn’t forgotten you

Instagram don’t want people to feel validated by the likes they get

The social network app, which has over 800 million users said the move will downplay the importance users place in receiving validation on their content, and therefore shifting focus to the content they create.

Another IG rep also commented, “The idea is to try to ‘depressurize’ Instagram, make it less of a competition and give people more space to focus on connecting with people that they love,” according to TNW.

People in the region support the move

“Welcome back creativity”

While another suggested Instagram has ulterior motives for removing like counts

This is what the hidden likes feature looks like

The real feels

Tracy Harmoush is a Dubai resident and content creator and this week she posted a video in honour of World Kindness Day.

Titled, ‘Kindness is the cheapest form of currency to pay forward’  the video shows her in various situations, demonstrating the various circumstances you can help others.

Acts of kindness can be as simple as you like, from simply handing out water bottles and picking up garbage, to bringing spare books to the open book markets that are scattered throughout the city, buying someone lunch, and even helping a lady on a low-wage out with some cash.

The people’s reactions show how a small gesture for you can mean so much to someone else

It’s barely been a couple of days since the (almost) global release of the new Disney Plus streaming service and everyone can’t contain themselves. Walt Disney Co received 10 million sign-ups in its first day, showing just how youthful we all are at heart.

The new streaming serviced is akin to Netflix, except it brings together everyone’s favourite classics, TV shows, over 500 movies, and 7,500 TV episodes from Walt Disney’s entire archive, PLUS new programs. Everyone was quick to jump on the bandwagon and its US7 Dollar monthly price.

Who wouldn’t? Imagine all your Hannah Montana, Lizzie Mcguire and old Peter Pan movies (ALL in one spot!)

This was the dream of every Disney lover to date.

But the real tea on Twitter has been, ‘When is it coming to the UAE?’

The envy has begun…

Buuuuuut why?

Residents are hoping it’s not too long of a wait

Peeps in the US have already been showing glimpses of the service

There are ups and downs to having visitors in town.

The excitement when tickets are booked, the fun in prepping all the fun stuff you’ll do, running all over town trying to show them the best of what Dubai has to offer, and then ultimately, the come-down when they leave.

We’ve all been there before and we’ll be there again…

But what are truly the best things to do when you’ve got visitors in town? You voted and the results are in….

10. The Museum Of Illusions

70 quirky illusions, a couple of hours here is an absolute blast, and probably not the first place you’d think of when you’ve got visitors in town. Plus, it’s conveniently located in the Al Seef, so it’s two-birds-one-stone type day out.

More info here.

9. A visit to the Arabian tea house

A protected indoor eatery that’s covered in so much greenery that you nearly feel like you’re eating outside (but you’re not, which is key during Dubai summer). A tea house that’s popular with locals and tourists alike, the food, friendly staff, and cute decor are just some of the reasons this spot is packed out every day of the week.

8. A walk through Al Fahidi District

This historical neighbourhood was the birthplace of the city, so where better to learn about the history of Dubai. Immerse yourself in the traditional architecture, check out Al Shindagha Museum or learn more about Emirati culture at Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Center for Cultural Understanding.

7. Take an abra ride through the Madinat Jumeirah waterways

Part Venetian/Part Arabian-style, the Souk Madinat is purposefully built mix of restaurants and bars, connected by looping waterways. With views of the Burj Al Arab and a mix of casual to fine-dining restaurants, the Madinat continues to attract hordes of visitors.

6. Check out the Burj Khalifa

Yes, it’s gigantic, but there’s something that’s so clean, and simply beautiful about the Burj Khalifa. Especially at night. Watch the Dubai Fountains, take a stroll along the lakes and and marvel at the world’s tallest building.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B4cR–SnGpz/

5. Desert Safari

An excursion in the desert, (you’ll find plenty of companies that offer trips for various budgets) usually involves some dune-bashing through the desert, traditional dancing, catching the sunset in the dunes (an incredible experience in itself) and a Middle Eastern buffet in some bedouin-inspired tents. Dreamy!

4. An evening picnic at Kite Beach

More open the elements than JBR  beach, this is a brilliant spot to enjoy a picnic. On a windy day you’ll spot kitesurfers among the waves, and lots of people trying their hand at paddleboarding. There are plenty of food truck options, sunbeds and activities to keep the little ones entertained.

3. The Lovin Dubai Cruise

Biased… butttt The Lovin Dubai Cruise is brilliant value for what it is: A four-hour mega-cruise that departs from Dubai Marina and takes you out past Bluewaters, and beyond to the Burj Al Arab.

And mega is no understatement; this is the largest commercial yacht in Dubai, featuring a pool, a cinema, a nightclub, a top deck with plenty of space, a live BBQ, entertainment and full-buffet provided by the Westin. For a Saturday afternoon treat, this is a no-brainer!

Book it in here.

2. Ravis

Ravis is a cult-favourite, Pakistani owned reato but with a menu that features both Pakistani and Indian food. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better meal at this price anywhere else in town.

Simple food, done well.

Chef Izu is known for his oh so fabulous restaurants and HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, was spotted at Carine for lunch.

Dubai Municipality recently announced that restaurants in Dubai will have to offer filtered tap water to its customers in order to cut down on waste.

However, they have now clarified that it will be up to the hotel if they want to offer filtered tap water to its customers.

This initiative was announced to cut down on the use of plastic by making filtered tap water mandatory in restos by next year

But DM has made clear that the Food Code doesn’t say anything about making tap water mandatory in food outlets.

It is up to the eatery if they want to be a part of this initiative.

There are still a few places that are offering free filtered tap water to its customers such as The Noodle House and the Flow.

On November 14, 2019, the Ruler of Dubai, HH Sheikh Mohammed, celebrated the opening of the 17th term of the Federal National Council.

This is truly one of the most iconic moments for the country because, for the first time, the council has an equal number of men and women members.

HH Sheikh Mohammed shares in a tweet that the main goal is to work as a team and prioritize the service of the nation

The occasion was a celebration for the nation and drums were played by the military band

Last year, the UAE President, HH Sheikh Khalifa passed orders to appoint women to make up 50% of the council which has happened this time around. There are 40 members in the council and 50% of them are women.

The ceremony took place at the FNC at Abu Dhabi, where rulers of different emirates were present.

It started with the recitation of verses from the Holy Quran, followed by a speech by HH Sheikh Mohammed and then the council’s speech was presented by veteran FNC member.

If you’re someone who’s sick of wasting your time on long route journeys, then keep reading because somewhere in the near future you’ll be able to travel between cities in just a few minutes.

At the recent Dubai Motor Show exhibition, the latest ‘passenger pods’ got everyone’s attention.

The future is here, and it will save you a lot of time

It is a speedy tube system that will allow you to travel from Dubai to Abu Dhabi in just 12 minutes and possibly to Riyadh in 48 minutes.

The prototype model has been exhibited at the Dubai Motor Show and is most probably going to be the next-generation mass transport solutions.

A lot of visitors got a chance to test out the prototype

The concept was shared by Virgin Hyperloop One, one of the most recognized American transportation technology company that aims at reinventing transportation by eliminating time and distance.

Their prototype was exhibited at the Dubai Motor Show where visitors got a chance to experience the revolutionary passenger pods themselves.

Virgin Hyperloop One has exhibited for the first time at a world show, and it is quite evident that they’ve outdone themselves.

View this post on Instagram

Dubai, we are coming to you! For the first time ever at a consumer show, we will be showcasing our passenger prototype pod at the @dxbmotorshow from 12-16 Nov. Come check it out and see for yourself how hyperloop could connect the Gulf safely, quickly, and with zero direct emissions. #DubaiMotorShow // قادمون إلى دبي لنشارك في معرض دبي الدولي للسيارات بين يومي 12 و16 نوفمبر، وهي المشاركة الأولى بالنسبة لنا في أي معرض استهلاكي، حيث نعرض نموذجاً أولياً لعربة الركاب الخاصة بنا. تفضلوا بزيارتنا لتشاهدوا بأنفسكم كيف يمكن لتكنولوجيا هايبرلوب أن تربط منطقة الخليج بأمان وسهولة وبدون أي انبعاثات كربونية تضر بالبيئة. #معرض_دبي_الدولي_للسيارات

The extended tubes will be connected between cities and will help passengers reach a destination in a few minutes through a tunnel

This is what’s incredible about living in Dubai, the events, there are so many to visit and enjoy.

AND here’s another to add to the list. There’s a free event at VOX Cinema, Mall of the Emirates where eager goers can listen in on a very useful presentation on FinTech. If you’re a spender, an earner or a little in-between then you’ll know the necessity to be aware of any and all financial-related subjects.

Devere Group, one of the world’s leading independent financial consultancies, invites YOU to attend this free event, where owner of multiple fin-tech businesses and personality of the year 2019, Nigel Green, will give a talk on FinTech and why it’s the future, hold a draw with incredible tech gifts and allow guests to view a complimentary, exclusive *new* movie at the end.

Mark your calendars down for November 20!

Get ready to take some notes, just a few days from today!

Turn your day into one filled with learning (one that could benefit you in the future!), and hey who doesn’t like a free movie + freebies?

Be there at 6.30pm and you won’t regret it.

Are you ready for the future of finance, with keynote speaker Nigel Green?

You’re probably reading this from a phone or a laptop- whatever the case may be, it’s pretty evident how ‘digitalised’ our era has become.

This digitisation has spread across all parts of our lives, including the workforce, the way we communicate and the way we make money. That’s when ‘financial technology’ or fin-tech comes in. Fintech is the technology and innovation that aims to compete with the traditional ways we deliver financial services. It’s new, and it’s set to take on the future, why?

You’ll learn from Mr Green himself- who’ll give a topic presentation on the subject.

Following the presentation, is a raffle draw with tech giveaways (think airpods and smart speakers) then a complimentary NEW movie.

All you have to do is register and enjoy!

With many options at a regular noodle bar and too little ‘noodle’ knowledge, at Wokyo it’s an easy-peasy, Japan-easy (see what we did there!) process picking out the perfect noodle combination. The three-step process is fun, simple, filled with possibilities and adds to the overall experience of dining at an authentic Japanese noodle bar.

Wokyo, located in JLT (with branches in other Dubai areas soon to come), is a healthy Asian noodle bar that infuses all the glory of fresh ingredients and burst of flavours, all inspired from the trendiest cities of Asia.

So from Bangkok to Tokyo, Seoul to Shanghai- their different sauces allow for foodies to experiment with those cravings. Without further ado, keep reading so you can learn the simple steps to creating your bowl of deeelish noodle goodness…

1. Start with the sauce (it makes things more fun)

Reflect on the flavour you’re craving for the day. Each individual’s craving will vary depending on their mood or on their sense of adventure. For example, one could be craving for that umami Far East flavour, or sweet and savoury South East Asian flavour- the more daring ones, on the other hand, would go for those spicy, fiery flavours.

So step 1: that’s the sauce (that defining factor that should satisfy your craving).

At Wokyo JLT, they simplify the process by having a ‘taste tester’ section for the sauces- as the customers enter. So you can taste and choose your sauce from Asia’s popular cities for names, each with its own unique flavour. Seoul for that spicy Korean flaming chilli flayva, Tokyo for the OG Wokyo oyster sauce (pretty much goes with everything!), Osaka for some classic teriyaki taste and Bangkok for the creamy coconut curry sauce.

Are you catching the pattern now? Each sauce name matches its city’s known flavour, and you’ve NINE sauces to choose from.

2. Choose the type of noodle

Are you in the mood for that classic long egg noodles (a general rule is that they are made particularly long as a symbol of long-lasting happiness) while udon noodles are more for the ones looking for that “comfort food” since they are thick and chewy in texture.

If you are in the mood for more lighter noodles- you might enjoy buckwheat noodles or rice stick noodles — both with a smoother texture made to go well with different sauces.

TIP: Rice stick noodles and glass noodles are best-enjoyed dine-in rather than on delivery.

3. Pick your wok-sizzled protein (you can keep it vegan too!)

The best part of any noodle customising is the picking of your proteins. Seeing your choice of bulgogi style beef being wok-tossed, or that fresh salmon paired with your choice teriyaki sauce. The best part about the ability to customise your dish is that it’s all ENTIRELY up to you.

Vegetarians and vegans are not ignored at Wokyo, because this noodle bar has got it ALL on vegan protein choices.

Tofu and a wide selection of vegetables like pak choi, shiitake mushroom, broccoli, snow peas, bean sprout and more – you’re not gonna feel like the odd one out, ESP in group foodie hangouts.

4. Pair it with a cool drink

Noodles paired with a refreshing drink can balance out the warmth of the dish, ending your meal in the most satisfying way possible.

At Wokyo, you have options for refreshing home-brewed Asian iced teas. Have a Thai iced tea latte after having that spicy Korean chilli or a refreshing matcha iced soy latte iced tea with your Kyoto Ponzu light soy flavoured noodle dish.
Whatever you choose, you’re guaranteed to feel still satisfied, regardless.

5. Grab your chopsticks and GO forth!

Itadakimasu! (Let’s eat!) in Japanese.

You can now practice your noodle selection process ASAP!

Head down to Wokyo Noodle Bar in JLT and be welcomed by its friendly staff in Japanese that will probably stick with you until after your meal, upon leaving this magenta- noodle alley of udon goodness!

The word: Irasshaimase! (Welcome)

And welcome you, they do. This go-to for the working, visiting and residing JLT peeps has been the top choice for noodle and ramen lovers since 2013- mainly because they keep it pretty simple, by allowing you to start with tasting their signature sauces, checking which noodles go with what and having your protein and veggie options readily on display.

Life is ALL about exploring possibilities

Another GREAT news is that Wokyo HQ is now open at Al Wasl Square for those who live on the other end of the Emirate AND will set-up shop in the centre of Sheikh Zayed Road in 3 months! Guess where? Yessss, Downtown Dubai peeps- your noodle game is ’bout to get stronger!

Wokyo is open daily between 11am-11pm.

For more info, call 800 WOKYO.

Hungry? Welcome to Wokyo!

All their dishes are freshly made in front of you to experience the flavours you are about to indulge.

Get into the vibe of Wokyo!

“I look forward to strengthening the relationship between our two great countries.”

Mansoor Abulhoul is the new UAE Ambassador to London and this week he enjoyed a private audience with Her Majesty The Queen in Buckingham Palace.
Both parties shared the news on Twitter, with Abulhoul adding what an honour it was to present his new credentials to the queen!

The official account for The Royal Family also shared the post

“Audiences are a key element of The Queen’s day-to-day work, and enable her to give time and focus to key individuals,” according to the royal account.

Audiences are usually kept for members of the diplomatic community, although political, religious and military leaders along with winners of cultural prizes have also been granted audiences in the past.

An audience usually lasts 20 minutes and is entirely private, neither party record the conversation.

Mansoor, who took on the role earlier this year, is hugely passionate about cycling

He uses his cycling regular trips across the UK to meet different people along the way, giving them an opportunity to voice their concerns in their own environment.

While comparing parts of Dubai to the UK!

The Queen also hosted Ambassador of Saudi Arabia, His Excellency Prince Khalid bin Bandar Al Saud and Princess Lucy Al Saud
