Sun, sand and surfers. The mo­ment I stepped on Kite Beach last week­end, I felt I was trans­ported to Mi­ami, with­out hav­ing to check if my US visa was still valid. But what fas­ci­nated me the most was a crazy game of beach ten­nis – a fun mix of ten­nis and vol­ley­ball. Ap­par­ently, the sport’s fan fol­low­ing in the UAE has seen an in­cred­i­ble rise re­cently and as I found my­self clap­ping at every point that a team scored, I re­alised I, too, had be­come a part of that statis­tic.

As the days pass and my sis­ter’s en­gage­ment party ap­proaches, shop­ping be­comes chal­leng­ing. This week­end, like many oth­ers, my fam­ily and I de­cided to dress-shop in The Dubai Mall. The at­tempt some­how mor­phed into din­ing at Mado, a Turk­ish café, which has the best ku­nafa!
