Kaleidoscope buffet at Atlantis

Yesterday I visited the Kaleidoscope buffet at the Atlantis hotel. There was a group of four of us and we had two entertainer vouchers so it cost just under 400aed.
The theme for Thursday night was 'Arabic' - perfect!

When we arrived we had a look around the aquarium and then a waitress told us about the buffet. Kaleidoscope have a range of foods- Indian, Italian, Thai, European etc etc but they had extra Arabic dishes that night.
When I got my first plate I did not actually know where to start so ended up with prawn crackers, tabouleh, houmous, cheese pizza and sushi! I went back to the buffet several times trying different types of food- falafel on sticks, chinese chicken and rice, more pizza! I actually can't remember everything I ate!

Then came time for the desserts! WOW! I had my favourite tiramisu, jelly, fruit in the chocolate fountain, a variety of cakes and pastries, cola bottles and a lollypop! They also had a delicious hazelnut More cafe ice cream.

It was a truly delicious experience however I believe the price was too much especially since I eat very little portions. We were lucky that we did have the entertainer vouchers! Anyway I quite enjoyed the wide variety of foods available at the buffet and am thinking about trying some other buffets in Dubai. Suggestions welcome!

The Entertainer Body Book

So I have had a bit of a hard time recently which is why I have not been posting lately.
Alhamdullilah everything is slowly getting better.
Sooooo I decided that I deserved a treat! Hmmmmm what would Lulla like be pampered of course!!!

I bought The Entertainer Body book which is valid from April 2013 till March 2014. I have vowed to use it at least once a month to keep me serene and happy! HOWEVER I have already used it 3 or 4 times this week and plan on using a voucher this weekend too. Eeeek!

If you are not familiar with the Entertainer books then basically it is a book that costs just under 400aed and is filled with 2 for 1 vouchers.

So this is what I have used so far:

As you all know I suffered from acne for years and after taking Roaccutane I have a few acne scars. I went to Biolite clinic and they recommended having Ematrix treatments which cost 4800aed each!!! So I used a voucher and got one treatment free! SAVED 4800AED!

I had a lovely massage at one of my favourite spas a couple of days ago. I tried the Rollersage massage at the Heavenly spa at The Westin hotel. They used a hot stone that they rolled in a...rollersage?!? It was fantastic anyway! They signed my voucher and I can go back for my free treatment whenever I want. SAVED 595AED!

Today myself and a friend went to Hairworks in JBR. We had a conditioning treatment, hair cut and blow dry which were all brilliant! The hairdressers were the best I have experienced in Dubai and extremely professional and friendly. That cost 450AED  instead of 900AED. I didn't save anything really because I was treating my friend.

At the weekend I plan on going somewhere to get a mani pedi.

I don't really know if I am saving money or spending more because I have the vouchers! Nevertheless it's keeping me smiling!
