In my book, gift giving is a pleasure but thinking of an appropriate gift, locating it and then ensuring you are permitted to use plastic to pay for it can sometimes be a pain in the neck.
My mother is only interested in 3 things in life: Bach, hats, and church bells. Stereotypically speaking, women like to have a big wardrobe for all their clothes but my mother needs to have a whole room to store all her hats. In her free time she runs from one village church to another yanking bell ropes and our family home shakes as Bach’s B minor mass blares out most evenings irritating the deer and foxes.
With this in mind, I need your help. What ought I to buy her, the woolly bear hat, the church bell or the wig? Let me know, when you have a moment.
So, I’m about to ‘self-combust’. I’ve been glued to the Internet looking for some inspiration to help me buy a gift for my brother’s partner. I don’t know him very well as I’ve only met him a handful of times, but I do know he’s keen on vintage stuff; he restrings tennis rackets for a hobby, (???? I know, what a nutjob!!) and he drinks bloody marys for breakfast at the weekend.
Your best friend is an overweight couch potato but he has decided that he wants to become a professional body builder. He thinks the best way to transform his body is to have plastic surgery and to take chemical enhancers. You, obviously, think he’s a complete nutjob! What advice would you give him?
Has anyone tried the top-notch food at El Tapy in the historical centre of Malaga? Well, if not, if I were in your shoes, I would make a plan to go there with your mates; you will definitely not regret it!
The service is second-to-none and the waiters are hot! As a vegetarian, I have to say I’m bored, bored, bored of Spanish omelettes, honeyed aubergines and a few tomatoes and onions mixed together with enough olive oil to sink a ship. So I was over the moon to have lots of vegetarian options when I ate at El Tapy the other week.
Moreover, if you are on a shoestring budget, this is the perfect place as it’s as cheap as chips, especially if you order the ‘daily offer’. In addition, I had a blast chatting to the owner.
So, how do you write a restaurant review? If you are an Inglés Malaga client, you can check out my sample review in the Downloads section, but it you are not, perhaps you could follow these guidelines: How to Write a Restaurant Review
Finally, in Málaga:
Which restaurants would you recommend to a group of young tourists on a budget?
Which restaurants would you recommend to people who can’t stand children?
