Arabic Sweets

If you have sweet tooth this post is dedicated to you

I personally love sweets even if iam out,after a stressful day, even though i just go for party I make it a point to have something sweet

 

01. Kunafa

My mouth watering even if I heard this name not a heavy sweet food but the layers, almonds and the taste is heavenly. It’s bit similar to ‘Cheese Danish’ with a sticky soft paneer layer topped  with  semolina pastry and soaked with rose water syrup

02. Mahalabia

A light middle eastern sweet I personally prefer as a dessert after lunch. It’s just like ‘Blancmange’ made of boiled milk and slightly sweetened rose and orange water

Maldives, Male

 

We took our flight to Male on a friday evening and safely arrived late night it is a small airport without no wifi but the view is so amazing from the airport, Pre-book your hotels and hold the confirmations if your traveling on arrival

we decided to take our first stay in Fuana Inn, Hulhumale Island which is really close by to the airport and a easy pick for a late night stay

What I really loved about Hulhumale is the people around they are really friendly and helpful in sightseeing, Since I have a hard time with my work this is a perfect escape for me

 

Maafushi Island

Taking a ferry from Male city will cost around 15 rufiyaa and it will take around 02hours to reach Maafushi, An island with a small football ground where all locals get together for matches every night it’s one of the islands with less people living

We took our lodging in Maaafushi Inn such a beautiful hotel with some really nice staff most of them are multi nationals and served us well and made us to feel special, This place provides different activity packages such as diving,snorkeling,fishing in the moonlight etc

Food

coconut is a major part in all food items Mas Huni will be served in most of the hotels which made by tuna,crushed coconut,lime juice,and onion chopped well mixed with bread or arabic bread

Naasi Goreng is a Malaysian cuisine but adopted by maldivians with there own taste using papadam (papad or papar) by far my most favorite restaurant is Rehendhi Inn with some amazing foods with well rounded menu
