C & G’s Diet Menu – Comfort At It’s Best

The cons of being on a diet and living in Egypt is that well let’s just face it we aren’t the most health conscious society in the world. Everything is soaked in butter, oil or the worst of the worst Samna(Butter Ghee)!!  Now I don’t want to be a complete downer, if you want to […]

Caracas – The Attention To Detail

Ramadan is a funny time of year its consumed with so much food and shesha you would think you would have had enough of both by the end of it.  I like most actually like having fetar at home, you are so stuffed after that all you want to do is bum around and to […]
