Just back from a very pleasant weekend in the UAE. Haven't been in 10 years and a lot has changed.

One of the most striking changes aside from the obvious things is how much better the cuisine is.

I always enjoyed the Lebanese and Turkish food but everything else, including Western food, was cooked by Indians which meant it was cooked to death and invariably a bit of curry powder would always find its way in.

Now they seem to have a lot more western chefs there so I went to the top of the Emirates Towers and enjoyed a great Italian meal cooked by an Italian, good wine and even a decent coffee afterwards as opposed to the instant muck they always used to serve.

Will definitely be going back!

We've got an Italian restaurant 2 miles away. I find that a lot more convenient than an 8 hour flight to dubai.

One of the problems with dubai is how good the food is over there. Particularly the Lebanese and Persian cuisine. It means you spend a lot of money to put on a fair bit of weight... then you have to spend even more money (and time) getting rid of it.

It's pronounced "lesbian", man.

Weekend-vy.

Or as I like to say, "What a load of bollocks!".
