The Dubai Walls project – a Mer­aas street art ini­tia­tive – has turned Box­park into a more vi­brant des­ti­na­tion than it al­ready is: Over a pe­riod of three days, street artists Mar­wan Shakarchi (myne­andy­ours), Sya One and Fats gave bare and bor­ing walls and ship­ping con­tain­ers a new lease of life, through tra­di­tional graf­fiti, strik­ing geo­met­ric birds and wist­ful eyes. I went down to check it out ear­lier this week (check out my Face­book video of them paint­ing live). I’ve still got my head in this dreamy mu­ral of clouds. Shreeja Ravin­dranathan, life­style writer To end my week-long break, my sis­ter or­dered scrump­tious desserts – think choco­lates brown­ies, choco­late cake, and choco­late tart with vanilla ice cream – from Raf­fles Dubai’s Choco­late Treats menu. It made binge-watch­ing on Net­flix a lot sweeter. Sana Umer, web con­tent editor
