Hello people!

I have recently started a collaboration with Localppl to offer cultural tours in Muharraq. I’ve introduced my very popular Muharraq Souq tour. In this tour I will share some of my favorite spots at the souq. Hopefully I will have more tours soon.

973 flowers

We finally have a new online service available in Bahrain for online shopping of chocolates, gifts and flowers.


973flowers is a website that gathers medium to high-end florists, chocolatiers, bakeries and gift shops in Bahrain.


The whole process took only few minutes. I have to admit it took me more time to decide which flower bouquets to choose more than the whole ordering process. I really love lilies so I chose lilies on the wood from Fleur.

Rice Bowl – Brunch review

At first I wasn’t sure how I would feel about having traditional breakfast at Rice Bowl restaurant. But then I was pleasantly surprised by the experience. rice bowl city center Rice Bowl started purely Asian and then they introduced a new menu that includes Mediterranean and Bahraini breakfast. We were three hungry girls so we ordered Um Fadi tray that includes eggs, labneh, humus, foul and falafel. We also added Saaj Qaimer with honey, samboosa, Mihyawa bread and balaleet. Everything was really good. The labneh was fresh, miyhawa bread was crispy and the balaleet was  perfectly sweetened.

Opps they did it again! Cafe Lilou’s new menu

In a night of pure indulgence we were invited for the introduction of Café Lilou’s new menu.

The new menu was elegantly presented to us in a custom party theme!

In no time my taste buds exploded with the beautiful combination of dishes that were perfectly presented to us.

Moscow through my iPhone

It was a day in history. Thats how the pilot greeted us, passengers onboard Gulf Air’s first flight to Moscow.
October 28th 2014, was indeed a historical day for Gulf Air and to me personally.


I was invited to board the first flight to Moscow for a media familiarization trip sponsored by Gulf Air. It was such an honor to be among that trip. I was finally getting recognized as a travel photography blogger and social media influencer. Plus I get to travel to an exciting place like Moscow.

After attending the official inauguration ceremony it was boarding time.

And it's official boarding @gulfair first flight to #moscow 😍🇷🇺 #موسكو #طيران_الخليج #gulfair

It was cold really cold ! But I loved it.
