A FLAME-GRILLED PERi-PERi CELEBRATION OF NANDO'S QATAR, DOHA FESTIVAL CITY BRANCH

Image
A couple of years ago since my first dinner at Nando's. I could still savor my initial taste of their flame-grilled peri-peri chicken. Their chicken livers and Portuguese roll are my staples whenever I dine to Nando's and when I feel a little bit extra, I feast on their Espetada and siders; yes, I loved it! 
Done with the back story, let's talk about my experience of their newly opened branch, food and service.
Last Tuesday, 8 August 2017, I was invited by Nando's through Instagram DM to join them on their Soft Launch at Doha Festival City.

It was that one-summer-love that merely happened on a winter. She met a "summer guy" on a cold breeze of a solitary night; they uttered their first hellos in a long time. Remember the article The Love We Think We Deserve? That was written and felt a year ago. She strongly moved on from that; guarded her heart with bricks of an indestructible wall but still managed to care and to show love. -- Until then she knew she was ready to love again, but little did she…

SELF-LOVE ON STRESSFUL DAYS

Image
Sleepless nights. Stressful days. Name it. After all, self-love is the best remedy.  Every woman in this world deserves to be loved. If you can't have any then why not give it to yourself? It's not just about eating a pint of ice cream just because you need it or buying yourself some flowers just because you love it. It's also about getting yourself pampered just because. 
Now, here's a little "pamper day" blog post in collaboration with my good friend Lennie at Ganda Beauty Salon. Let the photos speak to you.
