I get to lump 3 new things into one entry this week (which is why the post is a day late – sorry!) 🙂
I met some new people, I went to a restaurant / hotel I’d never been to before, and I got invited to a ‘bloggers’ Iftar dinner. Win. Win. Win!
I’ve been following a Dubai blogger over at liloneoftheashes for quite some time now. We comment on each others posts, we read each other’s twitters and apparently we were both at the sushi tasting night that I went to a while back! But of course since neither of us knows what the other looks like, we had no idea! So when I got an invite from her to join a bloggers Iftar night I jumped at the opportunity to meet this fellow Dubai blogger, and a few others who were going to be there 🙂
Dinner was held at Le Royal Meridien hotel in Dubai Marina. We decided to meet in the lobby so that we could get a brief intro to one another, and to not walk in alone. The dinner was arranged by the Social Media Coordinator over at Le Royal Meridien hotel, and while there was no expectation to blog (or have any content on any social media platform), of course I just had to include this fun night as my something new for the week 🙂
And what a fun night it was!
There were 11 of us girls in total – 2 girls from the hotel, plus a few bloggers and then some girls who were just friends of the bloggers. The night flowed really easily with conversations ranging from politics to teeth whitening, and all of us giggling like school girls at some parts of the conversations that were going on! Really great bunch of people.
The food, well, what can I say other than DELICIOUS! Oh wait, I can also say that there was no shortage of selections, a seriously impressive amount of dessert selections and just overall really fabulously put out. The stations were divided up into a roast station, a schwarma station, sushi, cold meats, salads, soup, kids section, dessert(s)… I’m possibly missing something!
I took my camera with me to get some good food shots but because we were so busy chatting most of the night I didn’t really get that many… but here are a few that I did take, just to whet your appetite. YUM!
