It was a choice between having our lunch at Jones the Grocer or go straight to Ibn Battuta mall where we need to return our tablets for repair (but no, Geant didn’t accept the tablets 🙁 ) I am craving for Jones’ prawn linguini for weeks now but we’re undecided because of parking issues. When we saw the long line of cars on the exit going to Jones the Grocer, we knew that   we just need to visit some other day.

Whether you are on a budget or just want to experience something different, you may find something you can enjoy on this list. (more…)

We just had our breakfast at Tom & Serg. It’s my second time visiting this restaurant but I wasn’t blogging then. It’s quite obvious we had a good experience then to consider repeating the experience. (more…)
