Ship Ahoy!

Sunday, 29 January 2012

Team Cosmo got our sea legs on today when we boarded the BBQ Donut at Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club.

We admit, we kinda thought we’d be sitting back while someone spoon-fed us our lunch… So we were surprised when Editor Kerrie was nominated to be captain, Deputy Editor Aoife was named head chef, Fashion & Beauty Director Chee was in charge of pointing out when we were about to smash into the Floating Bridge, and Art Director Acacia was on cooler box patrol. We. Had. A. Blast!

The lovely people at the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club made sure our donut was loaded up with delectable goodies, packed the drinks box for us, fired up the bbq and got the music flowing. All we had to do was throw the food on the hot plate (and look out for previously mentioned bridges).

Choose between the Afternoon Tea package (sandwiches, macaroons, tea and coffee – Dhs950), the Tasty Mix package (salads, nachos, beef burgers, chicken kebabs and sausages – Dhs1,200), the MeditArabian package (Arabic mezze, rub-eye steak, chicken breasts, prawns, fish, veggie kebabs, fruit salad and cakes – Dhs1,550) or the Creek Indulgence (sushi, wagyu steaks, lamb cutlets, salmon steaks, salads, fruit and cakes – Dhs1,950). All packages are inclusive of soft drinks and serve six people.

Want to experience the BBQ Donut for yourself? We have a Tasty Mix package to give away, so you and five friends can take to the seas! To win it, just tell us: who would your five celebrity BBQ Donut guests be, and why? Post your answers here!

Sheikh Mohammad, because I'd love to listen to him reading his poetry to us, My friends from the running team, Dubai Creek Striders, Malcom Murphy, because he's my role model and the one who started the DCS running group, Shafi, because he runs like mad, and despite injury and hurt, gets up and runs more, and because he is ready to give up everything he has and go educate the poor kids in India, Victoria Leckie (Tori) for all the good she's done, and for inspiring me every day with her blog, Saeed Harib, because he knows the water like no one else. These are all celebrities in their own right.

I would love to bond with my girlfriends in a setting like this because we have one thing in common - we love donuts!!! Cruising, enjoying the view, laughing, eating, and all the story telling will happen on that time for sure! A nice way to relax and have a fantastic get-away from the hustle and bustle of the city and work-life :) Thanks so much and I hope to be luckily picked :)))))

The 5 celebrities I'd pick to have on-board with me...

- Brad Pitt
- Angelina Jolie

If it's going to be real celebrities, I'll be cruising with:

1. Johnny Depp - Capt. Jack Sparrow will be a great & fun captain to be with! ;)
2. Chef George of Master Chef Australia - to prepare a spread of delectable goodies. Yum-yum!
3. Ellen DeGeneres - for a fabulous "anything goes" conversation!
4. Lindsay Ray - so she can entertain us live with her You Make Me Happy song!

The 5th to be onboard would be my dearest husby. He is no celebrity but for me, he is definitely a STAR of his own!

But reality wise, I'll grab 4 of my closest friends to join us.

The experience, should we win will be a great BABYMOON for us. We're expecting our bundle of joy in 3 months! :D
