A new website based in the Kingdom of Bahrain was newly launched earlier this month. Boxed, is an online store that sells furniture and home accessories made by independent designers.  The website supports such designers and displays unique one of a kind pieces that are not produced in large quantities like most furniture shops we are used to, making the products more special.

NohaNoor 2011 Lookbook

Kubba Fries & Dips

I have never tasted a selection of kubbas that all tasted as good as the ones Kubba Fries & Dips, a delivery business, make. We have tried it a few times already and I'm yet to try the rest of their kubbas.  Their packaging is really nice and their dips are delicious. You can get it delivered or fried.

My favorites were the chedder cheese long kubba croquet, kubbat zarashk, kubbat yaq6in, and kubbat 3aish bilnikhi. Actually they were all good even the buraks.

Travel Advice: Four Seasons Hotel Marrakech, Morocco

Opening today.

My favorite city of red, Marrakech, just gave birth to a new resort, Four Seasons Hotel Marrakech

In contrast to the old Medina nearby, the resort is contemporary with a touch of Moorich architecture, like it is supposed to be.  The hotel is located next to the famous Menara Gardens, a truly romantic setting for those wanting to run away from the noisy bustle of the old city.  All rooms have spacious baleconies which look into the Menara Gardens, the hotel's grounds, or the Atlas mountains.

The hotel has two pools, one for families and one for adults, and an supervised area for kids with facilities.  Ofcourse, what is a Moroccan hotel without a spa? They've got the Neroli Spa Pavilion that home hammams and couple spa rooms.

More to come, one more restaurant and a rooftop lounge will open in October.

Prime & Toast's Menu Makeover

Prime &Toast just gave their fabulous menu a makeover. A fun concept!

The menu is made into a notebook and the dishes are put into chapters. At the back of the "notebook", there are blank pages where you get to write your thoughts and funny comments as a momento for the Prime & Toast family!
