Chimmuwa is a part of Borderline Collective in Mae Sot. The group was founded by Sylvia, who has many years of experience from various NGO projects, and Nor Nor, who is the group’s designer. The purpose of Chimmuwa is to create job opportunities for young refugee and migrant women from Myanmar. These women often have difficulties finding employment and thus have a high risk of being exploited in poorly paid jobs or as victims of trafficking.
Last month I joined Poul for a layover in the Seychelles. After checking in at the hotel, we went straight down to the hotel restaurant, where we both fell in love with the guava jam which tasted like a little bite of heaven together with the pancakes from the breakfast buffet.
This delicious green juice is super refreshing on a hot summer day (and trust me, the summer days in Thailand are hot!). The juice is made with lime basil, which is a sweet, fragrant kind of lime that it might be difficult to find outside Thailand. Though most larger grocery stores and Asian food shops will have Thai basil, which is also fine to use.
Last week, Pia and I met for lunch at Carine, which is the French restaurant at Emirates Golf Club. It’s a really nice restaurant with delicious food and friendly staff, but for some reason, they don’t have a separate lunch menu, or any lunch offers, which is actually a bit strange considering that the place would be perfect for a business lunch.
There is a new Millennium Hotel, Millennium Place, in Dubai Marina and before Ramadan, Trine and I were invited to the opening party. It was a really nice event with tasty drinks and food from the MasterChef restaurant in the hotel.
Trine and I almost always end up at Djengis Khan Mongolian Barbecue in Fredericia, but lately, Nara Sushi has appeared on our radar. They have all-you-can-eat sushi and lots of other small dishes that you order from the menu, and it is only 188DKK which I think is a really good deal.
