Just tried their cinnamon sticks! No one even notices the poor things sitting on a side, but I spotted them when looking for something less sugary for my two year old. She is now fixated on these sticks and when we reach the place, runs straight to the counter and demands them, making her mom proud of her amazing choice and sense of direction! I love them too.

Its a bargain indeed to share reviews here. ThankYOU for giving us a platform to write our views on - for free. As one reviewer said, Yadig may replace google search soon when we are looking up for info on where to eat and how to get there.

I was away two years (now proud mum of baby number three,) and came back to see the site in top class condition as far as layout and cute little things like badges and stuff are concerned.

Sadly, I seem to have missed out on two years of reviews. Picking up where I left off now and going to go through the archives, checking out who said what about who and why?

Ooh - gossip time. ;)

I see new change that now people can put ads in here. New rule? Maybe its good to give space for some free advertising too. :P

Good to be back. :)

Early Learning Centre

I like the fact that they have age appropriate toys and you can easily find the right gift according to the age of the child. The shop is so appealing its impossible to drag a kid out without buying something, so complimenting them on a job well done!

Mediclinic Ibn Battuta
14/09/2014 

I was looking for a peadiatrician when my baby's doctor was not in town and found the perfect lady here. Dr. Maha Ahmed Ragab is a very good doctor and her time and care of my child made the visit worthwhile. I recommend her to mothers who are able to visit the clinic as we all know that we need stress relief more at the time when our child is not well. Maha is the perfect person to trust your child with. I love her style and have deep respect for her opinion and winning personality.

Grand Optics
14/09/2014 

I found this shop to have the most variety of frames, both for sight correction or sun protection. Another interesting thing is the good variety of once daily lenses. A friend has a condition which forces her to use hard lenses only, like me, and when she asked me to get some lens washing solution for her lenses, only Grand Optics had it in stock at the time. I dont use lenses myself but for people using hard lenses, you can check this shop out and order them there. For those who prefer a stylish frame from a good brand, they always have something nice to offer so do have a look. Recommending it.

Medcare Peadiatric Speciality Clinic
12/09/2014 

I called Medcare Hospital to book an appointment with the Specialist Peadiatrician, Dr. S.M. Anees, for my toddler, only to be informed that the Peadiatrics wing is now a facility in its own right, based in Jumeirah.

Double checking directions on the internet brought forward some other fascinating facts about the clinic. It turns out that an existing villa in Jumeirah had been completely refurbished into a charming “9000 sq.ft dedicated facility for peadiatric consultancy.”

We parked outside the building to be greeted by a very elaborate, animated morale on the side wall that immediately drew a smile from my child. The reception area was compact but functional, and a little alcove designed for kids seemed to win them over, by the looks of happy kids running around and playing with the provided toys and craft materials. The staff was as efficient as in the old wing, and I was pleased to note that the pharmacy was just outside the main reception, hence easily accessible.

For me, childcare has always been a matter of great concern. From the birth of my child in Dubai, to the present care she is receiving at Medcare Hospital and its clinics, I have only words of appreciation for the management. Their professional care has made parenting easier for us in terms of our child’s health and well-being.

If you are new to Dubai and looking for a reliable facility to monitor your child’s health and development, the Medcare Peadiatrics Clinic is worth checking out, with my personal recommendation.

Found myself in the vicinity and decided to take away "Teriyaki Chicken Donburi". It turned out to be pretty good! My favorite part is not the chicken, veggies or sticky rice but the little portion of "kimchee" that came with it. I have always loved the Korean/Japanese pickled Cabbage, and till now, had no idea it was available in Dubai! Note to self to buy an extra helping of kimchee on my next visit to the place. Something nice to look forward to.

Tim Hortons
10/09/2014 

This branch falls in my way home in the morning and I stop sometimes to take away a coffee, donut, or a breakfast biscuit - a guilty pleasure. I really like the area. Parking is a big problem outside on the service road, but if you turn in, ample parking is available at the back side of the building. You can walk in from the side door. Tim Hortons is an acquired taste so many don't like it, but if you like maple dip donuts, they have good ones. Ranch wraps are a personal choice for me normally, and I am recommending their strawberry and berry yogurt. An ideal branch for takeaways, or you can park and enjoy your coffee in the car opposite Safa Park, which offers a pretty good backdrop for the eyes. The branch is spacious and airy with an outside seating arrangement, tucked on the side, with a rather unassuming and comforting feel to it.

Maple Leaf Restaurant
09/09/2014 

I was recently "poutine-d" at this Canadian joint. I ordered a 200 g meat sandwich, as well as a 'Lemon mint Mojito' to wash it down. It's convenient to be able to design your own poutine (choice of fries, gravy, and meat to top it), but my experience dictates that a person with an average appetite should order a poutine first, and a sandwich later. A combo of a sandwich with half poutine is available, but it's a standard recipe, so you can't customise it. The restaurant is cosy and the staff is friendly. A nice place to check out at least once, and if their portions agree with you, can become a regular joint to hang out with friends or family.

Insportz Club

If your kids are interested in cricket, private cricket coaching, among other sports, is available at INSPORTZ. The one-to-one coaching is especially useful for beginners. A bit pricy on an hourly basis, but then, when was private coaching economical in Dubai? An added plus is that they do birthday parties, as well as book courts for private games. Do check it out.
