Beat the heat

Hello Dubai-ties!

Here we are getting closer to the peak Summer season of the year. All we would like to do it Stay cool and stay calm. But this does not suit to the people who lives in Middle East. The moment you step out all you look for is some shade, sunglass, tissue, handheld battery fans, Perfumes and water. Here are few ways to Beat the heat for this summer. There are few of us who escape by working indoor and a lot stuck outdoor . But no matter how much you enjoy the warmer months, everyone needs ways to cool down when the summer heat rises. There are plenty of ways to find that cool energy and seek cooler experiences without blasting electricity-sucking air conditioning. Here are some natural ways to help you balance your hot summer adventures with cool breezy activities

Stay Away

Turmeric-Mask

I mean stay away of outdoor activities if it is possible for you . Yes. The best way is not go out. You can also use circulating fans and limit your use of electrical products. Try opening your windows and using fans to circulate the air if you feel like the air is stagnant and hot.

Dress Light
Wear light colors and breathable fabrics, especially on those scorching days. We suggest cotton and linen. Especially Hijabs ladies opt for cotton as it would absorb sweat as well. Opt for color abaya and colored umbrella.

Essential Oils

turmeric-root.jpg
Peppermint and Spearmint Essential Oil both contain menthol which have cooling properties. Add a few drops to your diffuser at home, or make your own body mist for when you’re on the go.

Make a makeshift air conditioner

4.jpg

If it’s hot but not humid, place a shallow bowl of ice in front of a fan and enjoy the breeze. As the ice melts, then evaporates, it will cool you off.This tip is when you are at your home and you still dont feel the Cooling effect.

Some spray that can cool you down

5

While elephants wet their ears first by blasting water from their trunks, humans should begin with their wrists to quickly cool down the blood flowing through their veins. Keep a spray bottle in the refrigerator, and when the going gets hot, give yourself a good squirt. This tip is specially for folks who travel in Bus or walk a little outdoor.

Have a quick shower

5.jpg

Morning and evening go for a quick shower. And turn on the vent in the bathroom. When taking a shower, be sure to use the vent fan: It helps sticky moisture escape.

Eat Cool, Be Cool.
Consume foods that are cooling to your internal systems. Go for sweet and ripe summer fruits, fresh veggies, and foods that are bitter or astringent rather than salty or spicy.

Stay Hydrated

6

Swig often. To replace the moisture that you lose as you perspire, be sure to drink. As you lose water to dehydration, your body temperature rises, so replacing fluids is essential to keeping cool. Avoid beverages that contain alcohol, caffeine, or lots of sugar, which are dehydrating.

 

Hope you Loved it. Stay Cool.

cheers.

Am I your Type of Wo(w)men?

Hello All,

I know it has been a Long break from all My activities was  quiet on  a snooze mode for some of My social activity. Now back to track taking you on a ride with me on this special day . Yeah Women’s days. yeah , I had a great vacation and it was all about Mom s food and Family time.

“Behind every successful man there is a woman”

NOOOOO!!! I am not going to talk about women. i am going to Help those poor guys to sort their state of confusion.

The truth is behind every successful women is Herself.

il_570xN.783982059_9b8l

Although I strongly believe each person is responsible for his/her own happiness. Let us talk about some women I know whom you might Like to relate to. I am not going to talk about successful women but types of women who is around you. They are all wow in one or the other kind. so Let see who are these Ladies form Our House and Guys

AND I AM GOING TO CALL THEM WO(W)MEN.

Women A ” FOREVER SINGLE “ I am a  single girl being asked out and dating is a whole new world. There is no mystery anymore, and frankly it is just too easy.  I am not into relationship I am keeping it superficial.

first-move

women B ” Marriage Material “I am brought up in a traditional, proper, and loving family I often go to my Father for advice. The way he treats my mother and acts as the head of the household is remarkable. she wil be like am going to find my guy when my parents points out to one. Perfect one to raise your child.

1_1426257831

Women C  “Romantic deal “ To her romance is when a man goes out of his way to introduce himself to you, is proud to have you by his side, and when he believes he is lucky to have you in his life. And the same goes for the woman. She too must appreciate the man she is with. There must be a mutual respect. I have a deal kind

relationship.jpg

Women D A “party girl” is any woman who loves to party.  This can actually mean many things.  Some party girls love to just have a good time – which may or may not include drinking and/or having sex.  Having a date or girlfriend who is a “party girl” is not necessarily bad – it really depends upon how YOU feel about how she acts.

Types-of-Women-Every-Man-Should-Date-Before-He-Settles-Down1

Women E “High Maintenance” can mean many things.  Sometimes the term “high maintenance” is used synonymously with what I later refer to as a “showgirl”, also known as an “attention whore”.  “High maintenance” refers to a woman who requires you to expend a lot of money and/or effort in order to make her happy ..

woman3.jpg

Women f ” Psycho” – that one word says it all.  It means completely nuts.  Psycho women will do things that are completely crazy …  Sometimes they are violent. Sometimes they break things or throw things.  Sometimes they scream and yell.  Sometimes they do outrageous things like vandalize your car, or embarrass or harass you at work.  They might even threaten you or your new girlfriend.  You get the idea.

angry-black-woman-The-Trent

women G “stalker” is a little more detailed – I would describe a stalker as someone who is constantly concerned with where you are, what you are doing, and what you are thinking.  A woman stalker will always want to talk to you … so she will call you often.  Kind of their Love.

jealous girlfriend

Women H” Religious “First let me say that I by no means intend to offend anyone by what I’m about to say about religious women.  I am highly in favor of religion. they can take you Heaven in words.

Women I ” The Boss”You probably know this – but just about ALL women really want to be “the boss”.  Some want to be the boss in bed, others want to be the boss with the children, or maybe just in certain situations – others want to be the boss at all times!  The challenge that we men face is to let them THINK they are the boss, when in fact we know that we men are really the boss, right?  Isn’t that the key to a successful relationship?  I’ll come back to that question.  For now – what does “the boss” really mean here in the context that I’m using it?   It refers to a woman who needs to think that she is the one in control of the relationship.

Man-Woman-1

Women J Jealous “Now you can come crashing back to reality with an image that is all too often total reality … that of a jealous woman.  Almost all women are jealous to some extent – some more than others.  Some women are so jealous that it overwhelmingly defines their personality, and their behavior toward you.  Women can be jealous of other women, or the potential of other women possibly wanting to be with you.  Or they can be jealous of EVERYTHING that takes your attention away from them.  They can be jealous of your friends, your family, your job, and your hobbies.  So jealousy is not just limited to your interactions or potential interactions with other women – it can possibly encompass many things.

But men out their trust me you might Hit a Jackpot one day with all the qualities you wanted and you would propose her irrespective of what category she might fall  .

Ladies “so Never believe you don’t matter or aren’t worth it. You’re a once in a lifetime woman.” And these all type of girls will be around you in form of any relationship. Be with her and accept her how she is. They are not bad they are what they are.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST TO MAKE YOU FEEL WOW YOU NEED A MEN (WO(W) MEN )

We are Single working Men

Good Evening All,

Yes Ladies!  

This one is about a man, may be your friend / colleague or even your younger or elder brother  or man whom you may be dating.

 We girls know we have been surrounded by plenty of men with different lifestyle but this one is about Their secret sneak peek . No, I am gonna talk about what you Girls are imagining rite now. No Blush! 🤣 This one is about a man who is between the age of 25 to 30. This one from tales of my guy friend . I felt this is what all men undergoing so Let us have a small walk and Talk with this Guy friend of mine. 

imagesMr.X.Single  Handsome 5.6 FT Guy with a slight curly hair, well  groomed, Earning for life ,lives in a joint family. His day never started with a coffee or a tea. WHAT !!!! 😱 friends was everything” Was” . Been more than couple of years with this guy friend. so as all other men  just as conflicted, confused, bewildered, and wanting-to-be-happy-in-love-and-life as women are. we’re all people, with a lot of the same wants and needs, even if our genders are different.😉. He is single. I have seen his party Life, Friday nights, His Laugh will make you laugh as well only when he is drunk or else you may need to pay him to get to see that laugh back.

He is under an impression like ” you Girls are lucky”. yes Girl. I know you Disagree to this. But i need to agree because I know what pain he is undergoing.

At his Best buddy wedding  I asked him ” Why aren’t you getting married yet? You are settled, Handsome.”Unsure of what I meant, exactly—compliment or insult; I felt like awkwardness to a situation that He  felt a bit strange. He gave a sign of sigh . He answered me  ” It’s not my time yet”.

My mind voice “Men have a shorter life span than women, which creates a pool of single men past the age of 30 that is significantly smaller than that of their female counter parts”When he told i was able to figure out that  He was that one of the guy who wanted to  live by himself in adulthood, who became used to living in a certain way. who become, worst case, interactable, but the negative side is that he has not given an opportunity to figure out what he likes, what he wants, and also work towards achieving it on his own—education, career, self-actualized life. That’s wonderful He dint do anything because He is bought up in a so called orthodox family .

man-stressed-sitting-on-sidewalk

so one day i made him  answer my question in order to make him realize that MAY BE HE NEEDS SOME OPTIMISTIC PERSON LIKE  ME TO TALK TO and why his he living so low life .I told him prior that i wanted to ask him something.

we took a chai and we parked the car and stood outside the car. He was leaning towards me and  took his Cigar , lit it up and looked at me . His look  was a hint for me to shoot my questions. 

I asked But y? 

Mr. X replied, my dear I am not the same person who was  at my 21. I am at the age of battling where the hell I want to settle down, Confused with whom to spend rest of my life, Fighting to find my own self, Finding time for me to escape and get that time of my own. Yes, I am kind of boring.Oh right . The truth is when more than half of my friends got girlfriends and being busy.That is when i realized that working 6 days a week is really fucking tiring. A beer and the couch VS a night out on the town with my girl that involves spending money, Time and attention… A beer and the couch wins. And i was jaw drop 🤷🏿‍ .

destaylor01

Hey You have a Girl friend ? ” 

Mr. X was like with a small smile “yeah, but after college, having a girlfriend isn’t all that bad. I mean, it’s someone to make you dinner, clean up after you, and take care of you. Not to mention, a lot of my friends are like wifed up already on… His answer was like 🤞🏾 .”How did you met her?” Mr.X was like ” It was a hunt”Mid-20s guys might not admit that they’re on the hunt, but they constantly are. 

so you are settled. Aren’t you.” How wealthy are you ?” 

Wealthy. With a sarcastic yet a naughty smile.He was like ” Guys in college drink beer out of cans. Guys in their mid-20s drink beer out of bottles. Cheers 🍻 “

index

” What is wrong with your fashion? Are you bored dressed up with those Ripped jeans? 

He looked at this formals. He said after college, guys start dressing like real people. No more ripped t-shirt, jeans, and old sneakers combo at the bar. They wear button downs and dress shoes. It’s like when did we start caring? . We no more like to be dressed up freak and want to look matured , Decent and clean. “

why dont you hit the gym? 

He giggled and told me “My dear girls! our body is going to change. Whether its due to having children or not having enough money for a gym membership, you’re not always going to look 20. Your body is supposed to change, just like everything else in life does.”

” How about you in your present relationship ? 

“Yes. I am serious. men like me. we  get to know some of them and genuinely care about them. However, that doesn’t mean we are not going to fuck them over. We wil. Unless we think we’re not going to marry you, we’ll cheat, we’ll lie, we won’t call you back. The difference between Men’s emotions in college: we actually feel bad now. “

How Open are you with your family?” 

” Zero. Actually I find no time for them. And they got enough of me. so they stopped caring for me. It’s some where like i Live in a House of wax . Neither i show emotions nor them. so i prefer living and spending more time outdoor and I just come home to stay over night everyday. You know you live for free and eat for free a while.” He went silent for a moment.

man-vs-society

But aren’t you living in a joint family. Isn’t that cool !. 

He told that it was cool when he was small but at the adolescent age It’s a nightmare. “You can no more  walk with your boxers, no more time alone in closed rooms, No more shirtless Looks, No more Split up legs on sofa, No more roaming around home with towels, No more coming home in midnight you know other are sleeping. And no more fun talks because it may not sound funny to others.”

So are you Happy?

 I have no choice .I am born to take responsibility. I am born to take pressure not to cry on the burdens. yes, I am a single working Man with a big smile. His smile meant that After the storm he is expecting  a silence . I gave a sigh look and Mr. X looked at me told this is not just my life but all the men at my age. This would be life, This would be the life forever from the age of 25 onward crucial period tensed about My future wife,  building my own house, Clearing my debts, Convincing my parents to take the girl of my choice, saving some money, making my parents happy ans so on.

 

I was like so you are not Happy rite 😔 and he asked me that whether i am done with my cup of chai. I told yes. Then the Reply he gave me made me feel low on myself because what i thought was a prejudisatiom of  the person ,whom i knew these years and that moment i felt pessimistic. He threw the chai cup and turned towards me” I choose  to be Happy. Am happy 😊 am in the age where your mother can no longer be responsible for your choice of clothing, Whether its playing or watching, you can do what you want. No more being made feel guilty for cancelling your big show.Not everyone is going to like you and if you think that it’s possible to be universally liked, you will kill yourself trying. I am going to fall on my face multiple times. This could be from a relationship or job or Finance really anything, but it will happen. You have to brush yourself off and learn from your mistakes.I found my person, she is perfect to me but aren’t going to be perfect for my family. Your relationship or marriage will be hard sometimes. It isn’t about thinking someone is perfect; it’s about knowing that they are perfect for you. You need to marry your best friend, not your “dream” man or woman.And i am gonna marry one. Probably you going to see me like a different person after  years and . It’s most important that you remember who you are in your heart. Love freely. Move towards your dreams. Accept imperfection and realize that life will get messy, but it’s a beautiful mess and it’s all yours.”

1

so while driving back i felt this is what all men choose to be even though they are like under pressure always. They choose to be one smiling around with a bottle of Beer or a chai with friend like me. This Guy friend of mine changed my perception towards the “SINGLE WORKING MEN” and He is optimistic by Birth 😊😊😊

Hunger Hunt of the week

Hey Foodie,

yes, we are back with yet another restro which would soon be my  Hidden Gem. This time time for Dubai. Newly opened and decently crowded enough with some spacious Indoor and enough outdoor space.

Couple of days back me and my Partner in crime had a debate in the car about food. And we had a  very little time left out as we were nearing 12 in the weekend. Now on the JBR road with all confusion we had our zomato as a guide yet couldn’t come to a conclusion. suddenly popped out ” Downtown cafe ” . Yup we decided and mutually came to a conclusion and landed straight to Karama. Time 11.20 pm.

OK. Honestly we couldn’t find anything in zomato as all were praising the food but not in particular what to try out. The menu was Lil confusing yet convincing as ,i was impressed with the presentation of the Menu. so after 15 min of wandering eyes between the menu, pricing and the interior we called out for Assistance. we decided what to have for the night. Chicken zinger burger/ beef burger, Chick la we (not sure of the name ) but it was one of their specialties Dishes and we ended up with some HOT SIZZLING BROWNIE .

so Let’s rate them

Ambience : Excellent.

service : Good (Nothing out of the box)

Family room : no (VIP Area i guess so )

Buffet :nope

Non-veg : yes

Bar : NO

cost : 70 for Two person

Taste : ” INTERESTING, FUSION, DROOLING  ”

Special : Been only once but heard their Milk shakes and smoothies are extraordinary

431

so Chicken , beef burger was Normal extra add on was some broccoli. CHICK LE WA was a out of box as this was fulllllllllllll of Chicken in fact it was sauced up with Avocado bedding and cheesy topping. You would be drooling i Know. Sizzlers brownie was Mouth watering as it would a fountain of molten chocolate and vanilla scoop. Taste bud was fighting between the Hot and Cold fillings. Our bill came up to our surprise it was 95dhm only. Now it just not fill our tummy but our Hearts too… Loved it.

Must try for sure. Do visit with your family and if so please try something different and let me know.
