25 December 2018: Throwback to another drive by photography! Believe it or not, I was able capture the city in holiday lights as we drove across the upper deck of the Bay Bridge. Only took several attempts with a five minute window (for once there wasn’t much traffic on the bridge) before I was able to get this shot but totally worth it.

And no, I was not driving, safety first and always.

National Selfie Day

For both #NationalSelfieDay and #ThrowbackThursday, thought I’d share my current (social media) profile picture.

It’s the first selfie I took a few days after arriving home from Qatar last summer. I was still jet lagged, silly excited yet overcome with emotions.

This selfie reminds me that when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade with a little extra sugar. ­čĺő Stay silly my friends!

Throwback to My Dinner at Fouj Cafe

A Snapchat Story

Here’s a┬áthrowback to my last few weeks in Qatar when I got to dine at Fouj Cafe on Grand Hamad Street (aka Bank Street), in Doha. My favorite, of course, was their take on the Qatari dish, chicken majboos.IMG_20170815_194717-01.jpg

I appreciate┬átheir gourmet take on the local cuisine without sacrificing on flavor. The chicken was fall off the bone tender and I was surprised I had a picture of it as it seems to have not made it to the video above. Oops! It’s seriously one of those dishes you almost can’t get enough of and can smell it whenever you crave it and right now, I’m having massive cravings!

They are well known for their deserts, with a wide selection as well as custom-made cakes, including tiered wedding cakes. I thought the one they had on display then was quite impressive. Their take on tiramisu that I had was so filling, I ate it slowly for three days, literally! I had to share the goodie bag with friends as it was much and I was moving out of the apartment. I can say though that nothing was left after about 20 minutes.

Shout out to the Fouj Cafe team for making my last few weeks in Qatar a delicious one!
