Find Out How and Where to Get Good Deals When Online Shopping and Win $100 Gift Card From Sephora
If you like online shopping like most of us do, well then let me share with you three valuable tips on how you can save and where to score the best deals.
3 valuable tips on how you can save when online shipping:
The cardinal rule in smart shopping is to avoid paying in retail. So my first tip is to hunt for coupons before making a purchase. Couponing is the best way to save when shopping either in-store or online, and luckily, there are now sites that are solely dedicated for coupons. There are actually quite a few sites but the best one out there is DEALSPOTR.
Dealspotr is the “Wikipedia of deals” with thousands of community members posting and curating deals for 65,000 brands 24/7. In fact, it has 54% more working coupon codes than the other known coupon site, based on recent study.
(To know more about Dealspotr, please check out their website HERE)
Next tip is to stack coupons whenever possible. Some retailers, allow you to use multiple coupons per transaction so maximize your savings by entering the codes strategically. So for example you have a coupon code for a $10 off purchase and another for a 15 percent discount off— enter the 15 percent discount code first, then the $10 code so you’ll get 15 percent off the full price of the item, before the $10 discount.
Lastly, avoid shipping fees. Most online stores offer free shipping if you spend a certain amount so take advantage of that. But in case you’re falling short of that minimum, search DEALSPOTR and more often than not, you’ll find a free shipping coupon on your favorite store.
Living in Dubai can also mean Food! Why? Delicious food is everywhere from Greek, Arabic, Indian, Filipino and many others that you can think of. Since I haven’t been attending events and reviews here in Dubai, (trying to be chill) I’m doing my own reviews and trying to discover new food places to have yummy food to indulge. You know, We are still new here so I would love to visit as many places as I can.
Moving on, Nearby is where Rice Me up Located. They just opened a few months ago and they serve Filipino foods, Desserts and a Coffee shop All in one Place. The ambience is really good. They have the orange colour themed and very neat sitting arrangements. You can hear Music playing as well, to set the mood while eating which is always nice as long as it’s not loud. Also since the place is hidden and more private compared to others, You can feel more at home and relax while you are eating. It is not busy and chill kind of place to enjoy your meal and to have a nice conversation with a friend.
I’m still waiting for their reply on facebook, so will let you guys know if the buffet is still available and some few infos about it. Will try to check it out again tomorrow as well and will update this entry for everyone who’s interested in visiting the place.
So last time about a month ago, They were offering Buffet at an affordable price although, I Remember that I had to buy my own drinks and desserts separately, so probably it changed or maybe not. You guys just have to check it out. I pass by earlier around noon and I didn’t see any sign outside that there is a buffet available, Will try to check it out again tomorrow and will update this.
We never had a time to sit back & relax and eat our food in Rice Me UP. We bought a take-out or take away twice from them and the prices are reasonable as well. My husband and I approve the cooking. The food is nice and good for sharing if you have at least 4 dishes for 2adults-1kid. But at the end of the day, We know that there is competition, So they have to be more generous with the portion or maybe change the takeaway bowl they use to make the portion look bigger haha
As you can see the last take-out we had, I had to put my finger in the takeaway bowl and it barely reaches half of the bowl. I don’t know if the portion is really small or just the takeaway bowl is too big for the portion that they are serving. Take note that we only Paid for the Dishes itself, Separate a bowl of Rice and the serving is like that. Overall the food is nice, yummy and well cooked!
From Burjuman Metro Station walk to the Entrance 1 and the building or the opposite door from the metro is the one that u needed to walk in. You will see a sign saying “BIBINGKA” Click Me for Map— Click Me for the Photo of the building. =)

How I miss the Flowers, the cold weather and the cardigan outfits in Dubai. Of course one of the things that I’m missing as well is the Dubai Miracle Garden which felt like Disney for me (even though I haven’t been to Disney LOL) It’s a happy place full of Different kind of Flowers, Colourful Sight Seeing, Balloons, Ice Cream and Families wandering around the place.
We went to Dubai Miracle Garden Few Months Ago During Winter here in Dubai, It is nice to know that we made it there before it closed this Summer, No wonder coz Dubai in Summer is freaking hot. Imagine Opening a Hot Oven + the thick air when you go out is just not good at all, I can’t breathe when I go out, I can feel the burn like there a fire near me trying to burn my skin.

When I was checking which photos I’m supposed to upload here, or start editing, I was having a hard time. Too many photos and I just can’t decide which one to pick for this blogpost. But I did it. It was a hard work! All the photos looks so pretty and amazing! All thanks to my husband who took all the photos for me while I was busy taking my Videos with my GOPRO for my Youtube!
Dubai Miracle Garden is 100% family friendly. Mostly you can see are families strolling the park around. Don’t forget those couples or partners too enjoying or celebrating their love. Don’t be surprised hearing lots of kids crying around as well, It is a big place to walk to with your little kiddos definitely they’ll get tired half an hour of walking there and too many Photo bombers!
So if you decided to go and visit, try not to go there during weekends which is Friday and Saturday. There are way too many people walking. Its hard to take nice photos without photo bombers or people walking in your picture or in your videos. You have to even queue or fall in line to get some other photos of the big wall flowers or some good spots. So don’t forget that situation.
There is a Food Place where you can go to and eat. It’s filled with pretty colourful umbrellas and it is such a nice Idea and sight to see while you’re enjoying your food. They have varieties of foods available there, Indian, Filipino, Local and many others to choose from. Of course my family chose to have filipino foods haha obviously! We paid around 20aed for each person.
The Food Place also have something for your little kiddos where they have tables and lots of activities for your kids like Face painting, Colouring and some others so Parents can enjoy their food while the kids are having fun with their activities. Beware of the people selling balloons and some other small toys or those food stalls, Its 20aed for a balloon that will pop up any minute!
All in all the place were amazing! I enjoyed every minute of it and would love to come back to bring a guests in the future! I wish this coming winter for their next opening, they will be putting Like Small Swing or playground for kids. It would be a nice idea. Or maybe they have one but I didn’t see it haha and No, There are no animals animals in the Park, so those you can see on my photos are only fake ones or statues. But they totally good and photogenic! Make sure to bring extra battery for your camera too!

#OOTD: Beach Blue at Burj Al Arab #summer #motherdaughter
Being a Mother/Father or Parents is a wonderful thing to experience. It shows how strong we are, It proves us all that we can actually do a lot of things that we never thought we can do in our life. I’m a Full-time wife and a mother of an 8year old. Having a kid/s is not an easy task. It is not just your life anymore, There is a little kid following you around, Most of the time grumpy and always hungry. There is no privacy anymore. You have to be alert and embrace the whole parenting situation.
#OOTD today is something different, I’ve been planning to do this for mother’s day but I had no chance of filming a #Lookbook for Mother and Daughter version. Somehow we were all busy and I had to film my own #OOTD then. Well, finally our very first mother and daughter outfit diary is here! Don’t forget to WATCH IT down below! It was a challenge filming it since it was freaking hot that afternoon + my daughter wasn’t in the mood. Well, she’s always a grumpy head LOL
Last Friday, My family went to Deira City Centre which is a really good shopping mall that we always go to. We walked around to different shops and bought a shoes for my sister. I was looking for an Off-Shoulder outfit for my next summer #ootd and stumbled upon my blouse in H&M which is in a big size so it is a bit loose although you can’t tell on the photos.
I thought I’ll go to kids section and find one similar for my daughter and there it was! Perfect combo for my daughter and I! My daughter is a bit conservative, she doesn’t like showing some skin and wear the blouse off-shoulder haha But somehow I managed to make her wear it as I wanted to for photos and video sake =D It is not that easy to film this so thanks to my husband for being so patient taking the photos and videos even though it was Oven Hot at the beach that day in Jumeirah.
Don’t forget to watch the YOUTUBE VIDEO above for my very first Mother and Daughter Outfit Diary!

Kimchikin: Contemporary Korean Restaurant in Dubai
First couple of weeks in Dubai, I had the sudden craving for Korean Food. Probably because when I was in Malaysia, One of the last blogging gig I did was a Food Review and that was a Korean Buffet in Bangsar South. Was craving hard for Kimchi! Luckily, There’s one place that is just walking distance to where I live and few more restaurants that I would love to visit as well in the future. I’ve been eating lots of good foods here in Dubai and probably gaining weight for too much eating haha
Kimchikin is located in Karama Just beside or next to Park Regis Hotel. Another one is located at Al Nahda opposite NMC Hospital behind Price Less Supermarket. See below photo to see the Karama front picture of the Restaurant.
You may call: Al Karama: 04 397 7650 | 055 266 2466 Al Nahda: 04 254 7748 | 055 297 5533 for more information.
You may CLICK the PHOTOS below to SEE them in LARGER version and to enjoy the Food Photos! I only use my Iphone5s which is dying on me already so please bear with my not so photogenic shots haha
So first thing, the food was good. No bad comments or anything. Food serving is enough for one people. The meat is pretty big for me or for my appetite and just enough to feel full with a drink on the side. I was so happy having to eat some kimchi too. I Thought that the Kimchi was lack of that bit of spicy taste in it, But it gave me satisfaction as I was craving for it.
The service is good as well, They were pretty busy with deliveries during lunchtime when we arrived so the counter was full with a cashier, delivery guy and some others who’s completing the food for deliveries. Thought that they should do the packing for deliveries and completing, putting all the foods inside the plastic in the kitchen or somewhere definitely not in the counter/cashier place or some table that is not occupied for customers to have some less noise and more understanding while ordering.
The place is full of Post-It Paper all over! It is like having a post-it war inside but it was cute and very colourful! I enjoyed reading some of the post-it messages and hard to believe but I didn’t write anything haha but will try next time we visit there for more foods! Of course K-Pop music is present where you can watch their music videos while waiting for your food or just enjoy it while eating your foods. I believe that WIFI is available in the place as well, so take some snaps and tag them! =)
I would recommend this Restaurant for you to try, Hopefully I can come back soon and try their different Chicken Dishes!
