The past few weeks has been really busy and hectic but it was productive so I thought of sharing the highlights of my week. It started with a very good breakfast by the beach at Leopold’s of London in Jumeirah Beach Residence.
I ordered their September Special which includes rhubarb yogurt, toasts, salmon, turkey ham, asparagus, avocados and eggs. I think it was pricey but given the quality of service they have i think it was fair enough.
My boyfriend ordered their Eggs benedict and he thinks it was really good (and with this picture you can really tell it is!) For about 40 dhs he thinks it’s worth the price.Their Mocha Frappe is so good!Cappucino.
Nothing beats sipping coffee while enjoying the beach view.Enough with the food posts. I’ve also started to try something new. Since I am kinda obsessed with typography, I am trying to learn the art of Calligraphy. It is pretty tough. You have to mange to do the right angle every time and I kinda suck at it but hey practice makes perfect.Me and my boyfriend started to do skateboarding as well so whenever we have free time during the week we try our best to skate even if it’s freaking 45 degrees outside (even at night time).
We usually go to Emaar Boulevard at Downtown (near Burj Khalifa). It’s quite a nice place to skate to. Then afterwards we head over to IHOP for some munchies 😀
Whenever me and my boyfriend goes to IHOP, we always try our best to just order appetizers so it’s not too heavy (although most of the time we still can’t finish it).Look at that fluffiness!!!How can you resist not to order some volcano shrimps (although we still think PF Chang’s Dynamite Shrimps are unbeatable).
This isn’t bad at all for about 120 dhs.
During the week, we always make sure to have time for books, so this week we’re lucky enough to be able to find a time to visit our favorite book shop in Dubai – Kinokuniya in Dubai Mall. It’s our own piece of heaven.
Before heading to the books section we usually check out the art supplies first. Copics, Pencils, Moleskines, Sketchbooks and the likes. Then we head on to the graphic design books and graffiti books section although we dont usually buy them because most of the time, the books that we like are pretty expensive but we love to kill time though browsing and skimming the books over this section. If we really like one book we save up for it.
This week it was pretty unusual for me because instead of graphic design books I found myself on the cook books section of Kinokuniya. lol. This book called Adobo Road by Marvin Gapultos kind of caught my attention and I actually bought it which is not really normal haha. I guess I liked the cover that’s why. I just feel that it’s not your usual Filipino cookbook featuring Maggi Savor and Ajino Moto.
Well, that’s pretty much it. Most of the week was spent on work. I’m a corporate slaveeeee. On another note, I’m starting to like working on an advertising agency but I miss working inhouse though. It’s so stressful but it’s fun and I’m learning quite a lot.
