YUZU @ LABOURDONNAIS WATERFRONT HOTEL~ Asian Fusion

Yuzu - Asian Fusion

Last night we were invited to this restaurant, Yuzu. I had been wanted to visit this place ever since it opened last year (?) so I was really happy and eager to go!

Yuzu is found inside Labourdonnais Waterfront Hotel in Port Louis. It is a small and intimate restaurant serving Asian Fusion cuisine.

The decor is elegant and luxurious and you are immediately drawn to the sparkly crystal dividers between the tables. I didn't take a shot of the cutlery but they were lovely too. A good weight to them and I think they were a charcoal grey colour lol

REVIEW ~ DINAROBIN HOTEL GOLF & SPA


View as you walk into the lobby

We stayed here for 1 night to celebrate Leo's first birthday (there was no party as we had just relocated and he had no friends) and also took this opportunity to get some lovely photos done by Mayline Ning.

Lovely cake from the hotel

I can't really remember why we chose Dinarobin over all the other hotels but I must have remembered that the beach here was lovely and I wanted some shots of Leo done on the beach. Photoshoot didn't go according to plan (as it was Leo's first time on sand and he HATED it) but Mayline managed to take some lovely photos of us.

BIRTHDAY IDEAS ~ CIRCUS THEME


We got invited to our first kid's birthday party last weekend and thought to myself that I'll be the one doing this in 2 months time. Still plenty of time you say.... oh how time will fly by quickly!!

Anyway, no harm in researching early so I started searching for ideas last week on Pinterest and Etsy. Etsy is a marketplace where people around the world can sell and buy unique goods. It's definitely a great place to check out for all types of beautifully handmade products and the good thing is, many of the retailers ship worldwide!

PROS AND CONS OF MOVING TO MAURITIUS


Recently I got asked what it was like to leave everything I knew and start all over again in a completely new country... That got me thinking to the first time I visited Mauritius.

I've been with hubby for about 10 years now (married for nearly 8 years) and every year we used to visit Mauritius. I remember the first time I visited Mauritius, I got culture shock! I'm shame to admit, but I didn't know where Mauritius was prior to meeting hubby. After googling and finding out that it was a honeymoon destination, all I could visualise was the famous white beaches and luxury hotels (yes I know, what sort of naive bubble did I living in?!)

REVIEW ~ ST REGIS MAURITIUS ~ COLONIAL CHIC


The main Manor House with the Le Morne backdrop

So previously I blogged about whether Mauritius is a family destination and it definitely is. I am very fortunate to have been able to stay in quite a few hotels in Mauritius when I visited on holidays prior to me moving here permanently. One of my favourite hotels on the island is The St Regis Resort & Spa, a 5-star luxury resort, the first St Regis Hotel in Africa. I visited the hotel shortly after it opened its doors in 2013.


LOCATION
It is set on an amazing white beach on the SouthWest of the island.

FLOWERS IN DESIGN

Columbia Road Flower Market

 'The Earth laughs in flowers'
                                          ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Seeing Magnolias and Cherry Blossoms blooming in London on instagram got me thinking... I miss having lovely flowers in the home.

Back at the start of 2013, I decided that I was going to have new flowers every month. Whether it was a ready-made bouquet or some flowers that had to be arranged at home by myself.

Flower arranged by me!

I think it only lasted until around August but looking back, it was a nice custom and the flowers instantly made my boring living room/bedroom more beautiful and enliven!
