This week (4th of March) we’re eating South East Asian at Hanami on the Palm, going to the waterfront market in Deira and experiencing an awesome oyster festival.

It’s great weather to go to the waterfront market in Deira, see this link for all the details you need before you go to the WATERFRONT MARKET
Sunday 6th March is the date for the first Oyster Shucking contest in Dubai! It’s on at the
Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management, from 4 pm – 8 pm and is open to the public. Entry is FREE.
There will also be other activities during the event such as a community building oyster reef using empty oyster shells and there will be talks on oyster pairings, oyster farming and marine conservation. And of course stands where you can sample some plump juicy very healthy actually oysters, theres’s even some caviar as well! So maybe see you down there!
I was pleasantly surprised with the size and interest of the audience at the Emirates Lit Fest talk for my book: Saudi Arabia – Vision or Mirage. I have no doubt this engagement is down to your excellent radio mention ahead of the event.
Thank you MonicaDavid Rundell
