April is a great month! The smell of spring in the air in Dubai… well… there isn’t much of a spring, but there are a few blossoming flowers, an entertaining and debaucherous April Fool’s day to start off with and immediately followed with an Easter Celebration and then 3 huge birthdays tucked in between (mine, my mum’s and my bestie’s ) its going to be hard keeping track of what to celebrate when.
Right about when this festive season began (late Nov – early Dec), I was engulfed by the worst thing a foodie could imagine- a virus! And not just any run on the mill virus… I was struck by the ugly, itchy and the extremely contagious rubella! Yes rubella (aka German measles) Started off with a ridiculously high fever in the wee hours of the morning, and then the horror of an alarming reflection starring back at me through my mirror after I jumped out of bed… My face looked like an orange peel… Only bumpier… Eeeeek!
