F&F Ramadan Collection

Quite a few Fashion brands are jumping on the Ramadan bandwagon which, in my opinion, is about time, especially for the Middle East and South East Asia.

I paid them a visit a few days back and decided to play around with their Ramadan collection ( yes, you can officially accuse me of being a Shopaholic ! ). Read more…

As we were cautiously deciding on which restaurant to wreck our paychecks at, I noticed Poco Loco. Read more…
