We review one of our new favourite places to grab a bite to eat in #Bahrain - Cafe La Ventana in Adliya. Pies, sandwiches, quiche, soups, cakes and so much more. #BHBh 
Sometimes all you want for a meal is a plate of good honest food, served in a non-pretentious environment, and at a fair price. Too much to ask for?

I shared my thoughts on the "navigation bar" that's ubiquitous in #emaildesign  these days. 

#emailmarketing  
Take a random dive into your inbox and check out any promotional/marketing emails you’ve received. How many of them have the eponymous navigation bar? I’m pretty sure the answer’s going to be the majority of them. I’m here to make a stand against the conventional “email navigation bar”.

Another foreign film remake. Wondering whether this one will be as gut wrenchingly depressing as the original Argentinian.

+Vivi En​ in total agreement with you. I remember feeling totally mentally exhausted after watching the film. The cast of the remake intrigues me but it's got a lot to do to even compare to the original

James Horner's Titanic score probably helped get me through my GCSEs. It was the soundtrack to my revision. Good bye James Horner :(

#BHBh  is back this week with a new review of +Gulf Hotel's #Mexican  Festival. And hey, it's not a review of a breakfast meal! 
We checked out Gulf Hotel's Mexican Festival, at their Mexican restaurant, Margarita Mexicana. We were promised a festival with authentic Mexican eats.

New review up on Brutally Honest Bahrain - we check out Saffron by Jena. Well, when I say "check out" - I mean revisit one of our favourite breakfast places in #Bahrain . #BHBh  
Saffron by Jena is probably one of Bahrain's favourite breakfast places. It's definitely one of our favourite places to eat, period.

The very lovely +Lani Cox interviewed me over on her blog on being an expat on a tiny tiny island called #Bahrain, as part of her Fish out of Water series.

Thanks for interviewing me, Lani, had fun answering the questions :)
Hello everybody! I'm back with another expat blogger interview. Yes! I found Jaina at Time Well Spent through another blog and I immediately liked her site because it didn't look like a lot of blog...

The Witch looks like it'll have the same effect that Black Swan had on me - just totally unnerve me. Bring it! This looks excellent.

Seriously impressed by the camera on the #LGG4 - not quite macro, but a damn good job of getting to near macro levels with a phone camera.

Said goodbye to my #Nexus4  last week and hello to my luverly #LGG4 . Really, really liking this new phone of mine. Not just because it looks gorgeous face down (but it does - look at it!), but coming from a Nexus 4 that was definitely on its last legs... this is a welcome change!

I use Vingette +Jaina Mistry​​ I think the native camera is awful. I can't stand the way you can't focus lock on the Google camera, to me that is a fundamental requirement in a camera.

The best Indian food in #Bahrain? Quite possibly! It's only a tiny little place in amongst car repair shops in a very dusty part of town, but we... well, it'd be a spoiler if I said what we thought here! Check out the review on #BHBh  
Al Maisam in Salmbad, Bahrain is a tiny powerhouse of an Indian restaurant with some of the best Punjabi food I've ever tasted.

The first review is up at #BHBh  - we get stuck into breakfast at local #Block338  eatery, #CafeAmsterdam . We don't hold back, that's for sure. 
Searching for a great continental breakfast brought us to Cafe Amsterdam in Adliya's Block 338. Read on to see if we found one here.

Story
Introduction
TV and film obsessive. Photography hobbyist - you'll rarely find me without my Nikon in my bag. 

Full time email specialist. Splitting time equally in Photoshop, magic of HTML and CSS and cursing Outlook or Gmail. A semi-avid blogger who enjoys having a good ramble.

What circles should you put me in?

TV/Film: It's been known that I watch too much TV. Trying to cut down, but it'll never work! Top picks from me include Breaking Bad, The Americans, Homeland, The Newsroom, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Justified, New Girl, Dexter, Fringe, Revenge, Suits. I'm of the ol' Buffy/Angel/Firefly fandom and I do believe that Angel is my all time favourite TV show. And I still miss it.

In terms of film, I will watch anything. Sci-fi, action, drama, documentary. Favourite directors include Christopher Nolan and Ridley Scott. Yes, Gladiator could be my all time favourite film. Tend to ramble on about films on my blog.

Web & email designers/developers: I'm an email specialist by day. So I design, build, deploy emails. I get a huge kick out of creating websites for people out of good looking HTML and CSS. I'm learning HTML5 and CSS3 at the mo, so keen to learn from more people.

Personal Bloggers/Bloggers: I'm a blogger. Well, a personal blogger. I've been blogging on my personal blog for a couple of years now and really enjoy it. Be great to connect with other personal bloggers out there. 

Photography: Taking photos is something I love to do and share with anyone who's willing to have a look see! Love getting/sharing tips and just being inspired by what other people are snapping out there. I take most of my photos with my trusty Nikon D5000.

If you do add me, please let me know which sort of circle you add me to so I can do the same in return. Don't be afraid to say hi if we don't know each other already too!

Great stylists. Sure might be a little pricey, but you get what you pay for.

Expensive for what the food and quality of it. Also, incredibly tightly packed tables. When it gets busy the 'atmosphere' is just like a school canteen.
