Had a mini celebration lunch at Yamamori along the Quays..
There’s a lot of things going on in our household over the past weeks. I don’t want to divulge anything at the moment until everything’s settled, though. But let’s just say that things are progressing quite nicely.

The Marker Hotel Brasserie has been a favorite for a long time – and I’ll share why
The Marker Hotel Brasserie is one of our favorite dining places in Dublin. The location is superb (especially if it’s a warm day) not to mention the prices is not that expensive – if I compare it to other dining places we go to around Dublin city center.

My husband chose Chez Max at Palace St to celebrate Father’s Day last June..
It’s been a while since we dined at Chez Max at Palace St. And for a long time, I really, really thought it was Baggot St. LOL! Well, that only proves one thing – my sense of direction is terrible!!!!

Been a while since I had Thai food! So we decided to go visit Siam – a Thai restaurant in Dundrum shopping center
Dundrum shopping center is one of our go-to places when we want to have a “different day” on a weekend. Because it is quite far from where we live, we often stay there for the entire day. We usually go there early in the morning. And then, let our son play in a play cafe inside the shopping center, have lunch, and just roam around the mall while my son takes his nap.

We went to Howth during one of Ireland’s Bank Holiday long weekends..
Bank Holiday weekends are here again in Ireland. I think we are down to a couple more before the “holiday draught”. It is actually good to have these short breaks from work, especially if the weather is fantastic, too!

The pride parade was on that weekend but I had to go to the city center for some errands..
A couple of weekends ago was gay pride in Dublin. A lot of people consider this a big achievement in Ireland, especially after the State legalized same-sex marriage. It could’ve been because of the country’s Catholic roots. Or, the fact there are still a lot of countries out there where individuals belonging to the LGBTQ community are still fighting for their rights. So for Ireland to officially recognize this right and grant to them – is such a huge milestone for the group!

Trying Taste of Brazil’s 5-platter menu for Groupon
Did you ever experience badly craving to go out for a bite but don’t have enough money to spend? That’s me these days. Trying to save some cash for an upcoming trip so as much as possible, I want to be a bit frugal when it comes to spending my money when eating out.
During these times, I often visit Groupon or LivingSocial and get some deals to eat out. I don’t want to keep eating the same food I have inside the house, been indoors during weekdays so itching to go out, too. And I don’t want to stuff myself with fast food the entire time I am trying to be a bit frugal, LOL! So, buying vouchers is the next best thing for me!

Beef and Lobster in Dublin was one of the few restaurants open on January 3..so we tried it out!
After the holiday festivities, Dublin city center seems like a ghost town. Some shops and restaurants are not open for business until the second week of January. So, if you are walking around the city center around this time of the year, expect some hot spots to remain closed for business!
