SUNDAY MONOCHROME








What I wore: Graphic Tee & Shoes (ICONIC), Blazer & Pants (H&M), Bag & Sunglass (SPLASH), Lapel Pin (River Island), Pocket Square (Zara) and Timepiece (Rimador) 

Black and white is fashion's coolest color combination. Wear from head-to-toe for a minimalistic style statement. Like everyone's say "Wear Black if in doubt".

NIGHT OUT AT FRANKIE'S

Before the week ends, i visited Frankie’s, the award winning Italian restaurant located in the JBR Walk Marina, to try their Surprise Menu – a selection of dishes prepared on the spot by the chefs for each diner based on their individual tastes and preferences. Launched last 12th of August, and its a overwhelming dining experience to meet Executive Head Chef Fabio Nompleggio that certainly keep my hands-down with the finest selection of menu he prepared for me that night, he knows exactly what i am craving for. 



Frankie’s Bar and Grill is an Italian restaurant concept created by Marco Pierre White, one of the youngest chefs to ever win three Michelin stars and Frankie Dettori, the world famous jockey, Incredible collaboration from both talented individuals the reason why its Award-Winning. 

Fancy vibrant atmosphere, classic with a modern twist to it, you will definitely have a delightful night while having sumptuous delicacies prepared to you, while listening with your favorite ballad and acoustic hits perfumed by this two dope dapper gentlemen.


Executive Head Chef Fabio Nompleggio, designing unique menus with outrageous culinary arts 

This bunch of different kind of bread are literally filled my tummy already and need to set it aside for the main course and dessert, and i haven't even started yet. But no regret they are so amazing with the selection of spread.
So refreshing mock-tail mixtures of different grapes with a little kick, partner with that is this Salmone affumicato in casa, vegetali di stagione, mayonnaise all' arancio Smoke salmon, seasonal veggies, orange mayonnaise what a impeccable way to start. 
I also had Agnolotto ripieno di parmigiano invecchiato, maggiorana, funghi porcini e tartufo nero Homemade agnolotti pasta filled with aged parmesan, marjoram, porcini mushroom and black truffle overwhelming taste,  the moment you cut the pasta and the melted parmesan releases the aroma that makes you want for more.  
For my second glass of refreshment is this citrus drink that has green apple slice on it, just wait and see what will i have for the last.
For my main course, Cacciucco di pesce del mediteraneo con bruschetta di pane all' aglio Traditional Italian seafood stew served with bruschetta garlic bread mouth-watering dish that is definitely worth a try, Honestly I am not a big fan of sea shells, squid and octopus but when i saw this, my jaw just literally fell-down and the smell is just heaven, what more if you taste it? 


Meet Steve, the most amazing bartender i have met and I'm telling you he is just a pro. For my last drink that he mix is incredibly awesome, the mixture of orange with chocolate are superb. 

Save for last, Stera al cioccolato con mousse di mango Chocolate sphere with mango mousse completed my life, there's no words for this, stunning sumptuous dessert that i have ever tried in my whole life. Bravo Chef Pavio!!!

TAMASHEE AT LEVEL

 I've been living in UAE for almost 5 years now, and absolutely loving it. Adapted some of the cultures and traditions. Fascinated by the grandiose lifestyle that the City has to offer, beyond that the local heritage and modern era collides which is absolutely amazing how the People embrace it. 

Many of the older Emirati men prefer wearing the traditional Emirati clothes, such as the kandoora, an ankle-length white shirt woven from wool or cotton while many local women wear an abaya, a black over-garment covering most parts of the body. On an average a UAE male national would have up to 50 kanduras as they keep changing their clothing to ensure the dress being kept clean. This attire is particularly well-suited for the UAE's hot and dry climate. 
 Western-style clothing is also fairly popular, especially among the Emirati youth. Matching with their traditional dresses are footwear's that has unique style and design, in this modern age we calling it the sandals and there's one name in the heart of The Dubai Mall, Level Shoe District.

TAMASHEE, inspired by the Arabic words for walking and compatibility. Evolves traditional Arabian footwear to a fashionable product that appeals to you. They want you to look cool, to be unique and make sure you stand out! That’s why they created a footwear canvas that revolves around design and quality. They travel around the World to collaborate with the finest designers, pattern drafters and manufacturers of Europe and the Middle East. Through this colorful collaboration, the Tamashee brand came to life. 
 The Tamashee team has modernized a traditional sandal to make it compatible with today’s world, compatible with all dress types and simultaneously supporting a social cause that encourages compatibility. 
 The traditional vibes to it with a little twist in terms of different designs and colors are just irrevocably intertwined.  
 Adding Swarovski crystals and pearls to it, a touch of luxury indeed and gave more femininity, perfect for ladies who wanted to be comfy and stylishly savvy chic. 

 Not your ordinary pair of flat-forms, sandals, slippers or whatever you call it, Tamashee is not just a footwear, it represent the culture, preserves identity and living the beauty of colors in every aspect of life.  
 Built with pride and integrity, creativity and passion that is why its stands-out among the rest. Its been a great pleasure to meet the talented team behind Tamashee, no words can express how humbled I am to be part of their advocacy on preserving the culture and everything involves the identity of the City where I am right now.
