  • Comptoir 102 - Cafe & Boutique in One 3 weeks ago Back in the day, before I stepped foot in a restaurant, I used to read all the reviews (like on Time Out, CitySearch, Yelp, Zomato, etc) so that I would know what to expect, what to order, what not to order. Especially for fine dining places where we can easily spend hundreds of dollars on just...
  • Happy Halloween? 4 weeks ago I’ll let you in on a little secret: I hate Halloween. There. I’ve said it. I hate dressing up in ridiculous costumes. I hate the cheesiness of haunted houses.

Love this blog! The Ginger and Scotch blog always proves to be fresh, exciting, adventurous and informative. Sandy provides the personal insight to connect the reader to her journey through her various experiences. Her passion is showcased through her use of descriptive language and outstanding photos. My favorite part are the tips and exciting recipes. Have actually experimented with some of her ginger and scotch recipes.

I really adore this blog - of all the food blogs I read, this one is so personal, it's as if Sandy is talking right to her readers. Her travels through Vietnam were really fascinating - and her posts from Dubai really illuminate life there. And finally Wee Scotch is a STAR!

I love Ginger & Scotch's travelogues. The photographs captures the very essence of travel... you'll understand if you read the posts on Vietnam. This blog is like an Ibn Batuta of Dubai blogs!
