Tempo magazine October 2011

  2. 2. Tempo turns two years this month, and what a journey it’s been! We started with baby steps in our first year, but have taken immense strides in our second.The last few weeks have been exceptionally eventful! We wrapped up the “I LOVE UAE” video competition with a big bang, declaring the winners of the contestand talking about ways to nurture our homegrown talent (see the main feature on page 14). With the UAE’s National Day around the corner, Tempo still casts itsspotlight on celebrations of the UAE’s big 40th anniversary; you can see it in this issue’s roundtable with Manar (on page 22) and can check out the outpouringof dedications on our website (www.tempoplanet.com).The “I LOVE UAE” competition showed us two things: how much enthusiasm and energy there is in the community (not to mention boundless creativity), andhow it is possible to get organisations and companies to work together for the larger good. Tempo embraces partnership and exciting collaboration, and we arealways open to big ideas.On the subject of big ideas Tempo launches this month the “Heart and Soul Community Bazaar” which will be held at the One to One Hotel on October 29. Thisis a family event focused on bringing together the capital’s communities on lazy Saturdays once a month, and on getting to know each other. It also reflectsour belief in the principles of recycling and re-using, so if you have stuff you don’t need book your table early, otherwise stop by for fun bargain shopping andto say hello.Tempo looks forward to an incredible year ahead, filled with more community and togetherness.Sana BagershManaging Editorbagersh@tempoplanet.com letters to the editor 04 18 people calendar MANAGING EDITOR uspace 05 20 riding the wave | got phunk Sana Bagersh what’s hot 06 22 round table FEATURES EDITOR Alma Kadragic the bottom bottom line 07 24 social meets EDITORIAL COORDINATOR tech talk | game hedz 08 25 doc in the house | live well Sharon Carvalho tempo top 10 songs 09 26 dedications to tempo MAGAZINE DESIGN 10 Mark De Castro making a difference 28 articulate | just handcrafted 11 WEB DESIGNcity bites | dishes for dummies 29 sudden deception Ricklen Abellera my style blueprint 12 30 media MARKETING COORDINATOR cover story 14 31 tamakkan | social net Manjul Abhishek Laskar Laipubam youth talk 16 32 yank in sandland | just a thought DISTRIBUTION COORDINATOR resuscitation theatre 17 33 horoscope Melaku Muluneh EDITORIAL CONTRIBUTORSADDRESS DISCLAIMER Angeli Castillo Shahid SaeedTo reach editorial at Abu Dhabi Tempo email: editorial@tempoplanet.

I’ve been told that several restaurants are using the same photos; perhaps they come from a shared photo bank, or from the same ad agency.

  11. 11. “Never underestimate the power of dressing well! Dress to impress! Show inner confidence, posture, elegance, femininity, simplicity, and individualism” Describe your personal style: I have an incredibly eclectic attitude towards fashion. I love mix ‘n’ matching to get the right balance between a fashionable, elegant, classic and romantic look while also adding a bit of excitement with a personal touch. The UAEAbu Dhabi resident weather and cosmopolitan scene are definitely a source of inspiration. My philosophy isMargarita Cejudo-Perdomo to never copy looks straight of the catwalk; fashion is down to each individual. Trends are there to inspire you and guide you to make your own statement. Fashion is the language of the clothes you are wearing! Fav buy of the past month: A gorgeous pink and golden bracelet from Aftershock. Which is your fave store in AD? Top places to shop in AD? Being Spanish I trust Massimo Dutti, Zara and Mango’s latest runway trends for much of my work and leisure clothing. Their fitted fashionable lines are always a safe bet. However I also try to venture out to other stores in search of exotic Arabic/Indian inspired costumes. For cocktails or eveningwear I turn to Reiss or Bebe. A tip, invest in colours this season! Remember shoes must always stand out more than the outfit. Use accessories to show you are on top of trends! Does Abu Dhabi have style? Yes it does, but it is rather a melting pot of international flavours. I tried to import my Spanish style but it did not work. Abu Dhabi has its own essence and you cannot ignore it. Blend it into your own fashion personality and you will be a winner! Do you have any fashion hates? Regardless of clothes or occasion there are two important rules to take into account: walking a perfect posture and showing femininity as both reflect on the clothes worn.

I brainstormed with my husband, my friends, my mum and dad and I also spent about three days watching the best short movies from all over the world to get some sort of inspiration but the idea I used was the idea that came to me the moment I decided to participate. My aim was to show people – simple, happy and smiling. I then began looking for a shape to combine all the characters together and I found it in a simple heart. So I shot people who work at the fish market, white collar workers, boxer, artist, Asians, Europeans, and Africans. It was hard to find music as well.

THE BIG WHYS OF LIFEBy Ahmed Samir By Shamma Al Suwaidi“Teenager!” The word carries an overwhelmingly negative It’s funny how life always seems to hit us withconnotation, doesn’t it? It’s as though it carries a probablyunintended but nonetheless pernicious assumption that a series of unexpected events; sometimes good,teenagers are “stupid”.

ELLIOT’S “THE COCKTAIL PARTY”By Sharon Carvalho THE ACTORS SHARON THOMPSON- I’ve been involved with dramatics since an early age and it’s great to be involved with such an enthusiastic and talented cast who so obviously love the “craft”. DEBORAH LOUSON- I play the role of Julia and I’m the older member of the play and cast. This is my first play with Resuscitation Theatre and I’ve been with it since May.
