Today, May 8th, 2017 marks my 10th Anniversary in Blogging. Staying online for exactly a decade now despite the frustrations and disappointments at times, has never been easy. There had been a moment that I wished to quit and shut down everything. There’s a tug of war between feeding my passion and creativity, versus trying to justify the purpose. Nevertheless, the evolution that this site has taken from 2007 up to 2017 has been personally rewarding (You’ll never understand how satisfying it is to have an outlet of creativity and a virtual home at the same time, if you’re not into it yourself).

So, Happy 10th Birthday to Beyond Toxicity @! *confetti*

And massive THANK YOU to everyone who follows this blog, particularly those who tirelessly leave comments and queries on each posts! Thank you so much!

I’m extra grateful to our friends and sponsors who have been supportive throughout the years from Southeast Asia and the Middle East!

THANK YOU to Dusit Thani Dubai for hosting one of my blog’s anniversary celebrations this year! I feel so loved and blessed!

If you must know,

Dusit Thani Dubai has been a favourite

and one of the most preferred go-to-places in the UAE,

not only for accommodation but for the food department!

Their Friday Brunch is certainly a must-try! 

Here’s why :

  • Wide array of choices of dishes from 3 participating restaurants (Benjarong Royal Thai Cuisine, Pax Ristorante – the Italian restaurant, and Californian, the restaurant that offers continental food). It’s absolutely 3-in-1 Friday Brunch for the price of 1. 
  • Superb, polite, and efficient service.
  • Value for money!
  • Family friendly.

Here’s a quick rundown of what we devoured and feasted for my

10th Blogging Anniversary celebration!
