My name is Eve, otherwise known as “Mummy Mummy Mummy” to my 2.5 year old son, Kai. I was fortunate enough to grow up in Dubai during the 80’s and 90’s, so I’ve witnessed a lot of change over the years and for the most part, embraced it. I left ‘permanently’ in 2004, met a boy (Mike), married him and somehow found ourselves back here a few years later. As the saying goes “Once the sand of Dubai has settled on your shoulders you can never shake it off!”
WHERE IS HOME?
Dubai, for most of my life.

I love Mamma Mia.
IF YOU COULD EAT ONE MEAL FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Pasta with a roast veg sauce and garlic bread.

WHICH DESTINATION IS ON YOUR BUCKET LIST TO VISIT?
WHAT’S YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?
Cheese Manakeesh .
IF YOU COULD HAVE A SUPER POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT LIVING IN DUBAI?
The lifestyle and my friends. My core friendship group is made up primarily of people who grew up here. It’s wonderful watching our children now grow up together.
