100 Weekends: Episode 1 – Al Karama Dubai

Presenting, the first episode of my video blog series called 100 Weekends! Yipeeedooodles!

(Know more about 100 Weekends Project Vlog Series)

The best way to start a weekend escapade on a budget project is by going to a place where you can definitely stretch the money in your pocket. This is one of the reasons why we have chosen Al Karama as our first destination… and I think we did well with our 100 dirhams budget ( a lot of food).

Karama is a favorite spot for a lot of bloggers in terms of exploring diverse kinds of food. When you watch this episode, you’ll now what I am talking about.

I have featured some top fooddie places in my blog before. Check it out : KARAMA HIDDEN GEMS

Although I still feel awkward talking in front of the camera, I can say that I enjoyed doing this project. Specially meeting the people in the neighborhood. (Tip: Having a video camera following you always helps in engaging with the community! hahaha). At the end of the video, you will see me become more talkative which was good as I don’t need to do more voice overs ^^!

As I mentioned, we’ve done a lot of things for this first episode, considering we have a budget of just 100 dirhams.  Here are the places we went to:
