t’s finally here - the issue that all parents have been waiting for - the kids’ summer camp issue! You can breathe a sigh of relief as we’ve rounded up a diverse selection of Dubai’s best ideas for you to keep the kids entertained over the long hot break. There’s also plenty of other activities going on for the kids this month, as we try out an exciting new play area and give you the chance to win tickets to a lovely family show. Many of us abuse our bodies all year and then panic just before summer hits about how we’ll fit our wobbly bits into a bikini! But don’t worry, there’s still time to get that bod ‘beach ready’, and this month we give you some of our top tips and treatments. I should not forget to say “Happy Father’s Day to all the dads’ out there”! And for those awaiting their little bundle of joy’s imminent arrival with trepidation, fear not. We sort through all those first time father fears in our healthy living section and advise on how to deal with them. Enjoy!

It was so good to read your piece on the Dubai Senior Dog Project in the May issue. Over the many years that I’ve lived in Middle East, I’ve met numerous people who have purchased or adopted puppies here. As most of these people were on a temporary contract, they then had the expense of getting these pets back to their home country. To take in an older dog offers an alternative option. I have an older dog that was given to me by a friend and they make wonderful companions. Regards, -Derek

Things we did this month... Trained the pup

We all cooed when Rachel became ‘mum’ to Winston, a teacup Yorkshire Terrier, then laughed when she told us stories of the naughty little puppy’s adventures, most of which involved her being kept awake all night! Training was called for, so we sent Rachel and Winston to Homely Petz. Homely Petz offer professional pet care services in dog training, pet vaccination, professional dog walking, special needs pets, puppy care, dog behaviour and Petz Plaza the online pet store. Puppy basic training was delivered in six hours over five sessions spread out over a three week period and is all done in the convenience of your own home. It starts with a two hour foundation session with the owners - potty training, nutrition basics, grooming and cleaning ideas. Then over the next four sessions you will learn puppy behaviour and training - sit, down, wait, stay and come. Rachel said, “I found the course very informative and it gave me all the knowledge I needed. Winston is now toilet trained and follows all the commands I give him”.

Let the kids run loose!

Play A Round @ Some Place Nice is a family recreation centre with the region’s first indoor neon mini-golf experience, as well as a soft play crèche and an arts and crafts area where kids can get creative. It caters to children aged from three to 10 years and encourages parents to join in the activities, which are designed to promote intellectual play. We sent mum of two Claire, down with her boys to try it out. She said, “While Josh (six) played neon mini golf, two year old Zack painted and played in the soft play area. As both kids were being supervised by the friendly, helpful staff I felt I could go and enjoy a nice relaxing coffee for the first time in ages! Both the boys really did enjoy it due to the age appropriate activities that they could be doing at the same time - avoiding the usual conflict. I can honestly say there is nowhere else like this in Dubai, there’s such a nice chilled out vibe I would definitely go back with a few friends and enjoy the opportunity to relax for an hour while the children are entertained.” Play A Round @ Some Place Nice is located in Jewels Tower, Dubai Marina.

Blue Flame @ Jumeirah Creekside Hotel

L’Olivo, Rixos The Palm Dubai This elegant Italian eatery offers delicious homemade dishes paired with great wines. What we ate We started with the beef fillet carpaccio seasoned with pink pepper and rosemary served with black truffle, rucola salad and parmesan cheese and pan fried hand dived sea scallops with crispy polenta and anchovies. We followed with main courses of fillet of sea bass pan fried on the skin, served on a bed of panzanella and basil reduction and the fillet of veal Rossini style with red wine sauce and shallots. Dessert was the Sicilian cannoli and a homemade ice cream selection. Verdict The food was beautifully presented, so fresh and tasted perfect. All the courses were wonderfully paired with excellent Italian wines suggested by the very helpful and friendly restaurant manager Bharat Singh Rathore. Take his advice, you won’t regret it!

For mains we tried the Australian Angus Sirloin and Tenderloin, with grilled asparagus, steamed vegetables, potato gratin, truffle whipped potatoes with a creamy wild mushroom sauce and a green peppercorn sauce. For desserts we had the key lime pie and the ice cream and sorbets. Verdict I was particularly impressed with how fresh and flavoursome the crab cakes were. However, it was the steaks from The Grand Grill where this restaurant really hooked us. They were literally cooked to melt in the mouth perfection and tasted amazing, and you will simply have to try the truffle whipped potatoes, they are delish! All in all, fantastic!

GOOD food

Watermelon goodness Watermelon, which was first cultivated in Egypt, was considered sacred in ancient times and placed in the tombs of many Egyptian kings. Due to the frequent scarcity of water supply in these areas, inhabitants of Ancient Egypt and some countries of the Mediterranean region relied on watermelon to help quench their thirst. In addition to its thirst-quenching properties, watermelon is

rich in lycopene, Vitamin C and Vitamin A which are known to be powerful and healthful antioxidants. Some studies have shown that a regular consumption of watermelon and green tea may reduce the risk of certain cancers such as prostate cancer. There is nothing better than a low-calorie and guilt-free watermelon sorbet to quench your thirst over the hot summer.

Watermelon sorbet Number of servings: 8

Serving size: 1 scoop Calories per serving: 68 Kcal Protein: 0.3g Carbs: 17g Fat: 0g Preparation time: 35 minutes Ingredients: ½ cup plus 4 cups seeded and pureed watermelon ½ cup fruit sugar 2 tablespoons lime juice 1 teaspoon lime zest

Preparation:

1. In a small saucepan, bring ½ cup watermelon puree and the fruit sugar to a simmer and remove it from the heat. 2. Add the lime juice and zest and allow the mixture to cool for 20 minutes. 3.

Do’s and Don’ts

for decorating small spaces

S

mall spaces often get neglected or simply used as storage rooms. A common misconception when it comes to decorating small spaces is that the walls should be white and the furniture should be small. Here are some tips to make the most out of your small space, making it liveable, practical and pleasant. First and foremost, identify what you need that room to be; a spare bedroom, study or library, play room or lounge then proceed with the following in mind. • Just because it’s a smaller room doesn’t mean you need to opt for itty bitty furniture. Make the limited space you have usable. A few pieces of large scale furniture can give a small room a more luxurious feel, and an appropriately large sofa will make the space cushy and inviting. • Don’t use heavy antique pieces of furniture as they darken and diminish the space. Instead opt for clean lines and minimalist furnishings. Instead of a full size dining table, opt for an extendable one to maximise floor space when not in use.

50 | JUNE Connector Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 50

• Draw attention by height by using appropriately placed tall pieces which have the effect of drawing the eye upwards and away from the small footprint of the room. Hanging floor length curtains from as close to the ceiling as possible also helps draw the eye upwards and adds a more luxurious touch. • Don’t cram too many tall pieces though as they can appear cluttered or overbearing. • Maximise your storage space with hidden solutions such as under the bed, behind a door, inside an ottoman and on the walls. If not needed for storage use built in cupboards as a study nook with a desk and shelving that can be shut away when not in use. • Don’t display too many decorative items on shelves. One statement or practical piece is better than lots of little pieces. • You won’t get too sick of seeing interesting patterns in wall paper in a smaller less used space, so don’t be afraid to go bold. Subtly defining the space can also help keep it interesting. • Don’t paint the walls too dark, as it encloses the space. To keep it interesting opt for neutral patterns. • Open up the space by removing the door and frame, creating more of an alcove or nook to create a flow and spread light. • Mirrors can help spread limited light, especially on the wall opposite a window. They also open up a space by reflecting a pretty view. • Use transparent materials like glass or Perspex for pieces like shelves, TV stands, coffee tables and side tables to lighten the visual space. www.mydubaiconnection.com 5/26/13 2:44 PM

HOME & garden

Colour your HOME It used to be easy to furnish a villa here. No matter what furniture you had in your shipment, its contents would arrive in your new villa or apartment and go perfectly well with the white walls. You could always jazz up the décor by adding a few rugs or family photos and occasionally paint your walls if your landlord was willing. If you needed new furniture, there were just a few shops to choose from, so most people had an ‘Ikea’ or a ‘Marina’ home. Oh how times have changed.

N

owadays, it is becoming increasingly popular to buy your own home here and spend time and money creating that perfect place to call your own. As this trend has taken place, companies have joined in and opened new shops, increased their lines and created new ways of marketing their products to the buying public. Colour is a very important part of this new process. Some of us are drawn to adverts for clothes, make-up, cars etc. that are vivid, colourful and therefore often considered exciting. However, there is an equal number of people who prefer neutrals, calming colours and generally softer options. It is the same with perfumes; some of us love the exotic heady notes whilst others prefer to layer ourselves in floral notes. We are all drawn to something different, be it with our eyes, nose or any other senses, which is why we are all individuals. Of course that is all fine when we live on our own, but often we have to compromise. A good way around this is to decide on decorating a room each in your own taste, but choose together for your main living areas. It is therefore important to understand colour and its impact to create a beautiful scheme for every room in your home. We are all familiar with the terminology and basic build up of primary, secondary and tertiary colours. In addition, reference to tints, shades and tones is regularly used and we even understand what neutral, warm and cold

HOME & garden colours mean. But how many of us go beyond the basic colour theory to create sophisticated looks suited to the room, its size, the lighting and bearing in mind who is going to be living in the space? Remember that colours have characters and personalities of their own. The six major colours are red, orange, yellow, blue, green and violet. These through varying depths and shades make up a colour wheel and more imaginative colours such as stone, moss and lilac emerge. Do not be afraid to build your own colour board, otherwise referred to as a ‘moodboard’. To do this, collect swatches, samples and images that appeal to you and create a story that you want to tell and experience in a particular room. Group paints, textures and magazine cutouts together to balance and create the look you are after. Buy a tester or sample paint pots and actually paint the colour onto the walls to see it through the different times of the day and the effect lighting plays on your chosen colours. Once you are happy with the look you can then move onto the next step to create your room. Whether your choice is caramel and grey with a hint of cream or you have mixed turquoise and pink for a livelier look, always remember the psychological effects colour can play. Red stimulates the appetite, yellows and oranges add energy and blue and greens calm and refresh. The present trend is certainly starting to lean towards throwing bold colours together like purples and lime green and orange with pink.

54 | JUNE Connector Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 54

The basic principles of using a colour wheel.

• If you want to create a subtle and coordinated look then choose tones of the same colour found in a single segment of the colour wheel. • Choose colours next to each other on the colour wheel if you want to add richness to any room. • Dramatic transformations are achieved by using contrasting colours that are opposite each other on the colour wheel. The size of your room can be impacted by your use of colour. If you want to add height to a room use the darker tones closer to the floor and work the lighter colours into the ceilings. If you want to create intimacy then opt for more dominant colours on the wheel like reds and purples and when you want to create the feeling of space, then yellows and greens are an enhancement. Accessories also play a strong part of your overall look and it is important to dress a room with varying textures to complement the colours you have chosen. This applies to your fabrics, floor covering and window dressings too. Brighten up neutral colours with chunky accessories and do not be afraid to use furniture out of context. Buy a piece of furniture because you like it and not because of where you live today. Fabrics are a fun way to add colour and texture to a room. Even when using a neutral palette of coffees, creams and taupes you can change the overall effect by adding fluffy cushions, a suede footstool or a velvet throw. Tactile fabrics make your room a friendlier place rather than colder, tougher cottons or polyesters. So remember, if you are inspired by the subtle or dramatic, luxurious or simple, vibrant or contemporary, relinquish your fears and have fun.

ou work hard, save up. If you’re lucky, you’ll meet someone, fall in love and start a family. If you’re even luckier and are a little business savvy, you may find yourself buying your dream home, investing in more property and even owning your business. But unexpected things happen, like death - which is devastating enough on its own. The tragedy gets compounded with related troubles and traumas, ranging from frozen bank accounts to disputed family assets, and businesses being handed over to ‘undeserving’ partners. Add to these the uncertainties in real estate inheritance issues in the UAE. Unlike common law jurisdictions, the UAE does not practice ‘automatic right of survivorship’ (property passing to a surviving joint owner immediately upon death of the other). All assets within the UAE are subject to a formal succession process administered by the local courts who will oversee an estate and make a number of key decisions. If you have spent years making money and managing it wisely, it is logical for you to 56 | JUNE Connector Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 56

want to plan for its future and ensure that your wealth, assets, any shares held in a business and property are passed on to your family or to beneficiaries of your choice. Hence, it is essential for you to know about the instruments you can use to achieve these goals. For expatriates living in the UAE, there is a very simple reason to make a will. The Government of Dubai’s official website states that ‘the UAE Courts will adhere to Sharia law in any situation where there is no will in place’. This means that if you die without a will or an estate plan, the local courts will examine your estate and distribute it according to Sharia law. While this may sound fine, its implications may not be so. All personal assets of the deceased, including bank accounts, will be seized until liabilities have been discharged. A wife who has children will qualify for only one-eighth of the estate, and without a will or estate planning in place, this distribution will be applied automatically. Even shared assets will be frozen until the issue of inheritance is determined by the local courts. One can take recourse in setting up a will, or more sophisticated solutions like setting up an offshore company or establishing a trust. You may opt to seek the counsel of specialised lawyers who will work with you so your assets, shares in business and investments can be structured effectively for the longterm benefit of you and your family.

A

ttention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most commonly diagnosed behavioural disorder of childhood. ADHD is diagnosed much more often in boys than in girls and it affects about 3 to 5% of school-aged children. Essentially ADHD is a problem with inattentiveness, overactivity, impulsivity or a combination of the three. For these problems to be diagnosed as ADHD, they must be out of the normal range for a child’s age and development. ADHD may run in families, but it is not clear exactly what causes it. Whatever the cause may be, it seems to be set in motion early in life as the brain is developing. Imaging studies suggest that the brains of children with ADHD are unlike those of other children. Depression, lack of sleep, learning disabilities, tics and behaviour problems may be confused with, or appear with, ADHD. Every child suspected of having ADHD 66 | JUNE Connector Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 66

should be examined by a doctor to rule out possible other conditions or reasons for the behaviour. Most children with ADHD also have at least one other developmental or behavioural problem. Some may also have a psychiatric problem, such as depression or bipolar disorder. ADHD is a long-term, chronic condition. If it is not treated appropriately, ADHD may lead to drug and alcohol abuse, failure in school, problems keeping a job and trouble with the law. About half of children with ADHD will continue to have bothersome symptoms of inattention or impulsivity as adults. However, adults are often more capable of controlling this behaviour and masking the difficulties. Although there is no proven way to prevent ADHD, thankfully early identification and treatment can prevent many of the problems associated with ADHD. www.mydubaiconnection.com 5/26/13 2:44 PM

Developing your child’s fine motor skills Fine motor skills are important in most school activities as well as in life in general. Limitations in fine motor skills can impinge on a child’s ability to eat, write legibly, use a computer, turn pages in a book and perform personal care tasks such as dressing and grooming.

A

s children improve their motor skills, they are better able to help themselves by completing daily activities independently. For instance, children between the ages of 2 and 3 are able to put on and take off simple articles of clothing. They are able to ‘operate’ clothing with zippers, use spoons, string together beads with large holes and open doors that have doorknobs. When children are between the ages of 3 and 4, they are able to dress in clothing with larger buttons, use scissors to cut paper and can copy simple lined shapes using a pencil. By the ages of 4 to 5, children are able to dress and undress themselves without assistance and are also able to manipulate a fork and have increased their dexterity to cut around shapes with a pair of scissors. Finally, by age 6, a child is able to cut soft foods with a knife and can tie his or her shoelaces. Because all children develop at their own rate, the ages given are not an exact timeline because every child will acquire their fine-motor skills in a different timetable - however there is much you can do to support a toddler’s acquisition of fine motor skills. In fact, the more your preschool child uses his or her fingers in activities that help to strengthen their hand coordination, the sooner they will master dexterity. 68 | JUNE Connector Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 68

Develop fine motor skills by drawing and colouring with your child using markers, crayons and even pavement chalk. Drawings need not be perfect - scribbling is great fun - and colouring pages of a favourite TV or movie character should encourage even the most reluctant colourer to literally try his hand at colouring. Using threading cards, making pasta or bead necklaces and other activities that require the manipulation of small objects are also great for improving fine motor skills. Try to set aside a little time daily to dedicate to such activities and you will see your child’s dexterity improve right before your eyes.

WORK at home parent

I

f you are a Work at Home Parent (WAHP), finding things for your children to do while you catch up with paper work can be a full-time job. This is challenging enough for WAHPs during term-time - but doubly so during school holidays. So, how can you work while keeping your kids occupied? Here are some suggestions: Infants - Before you settle down to do some work, ensure your baby is fed, bathed and dressed comfortably. Place your little one in a cot or baby recliner near your workspace. Whenever possible, try to coincide your work time with your baby’s nap time. However, if this is not feasible, entertain your child with safe toys that are appropriate for their age. With babies, you need to take frequent breaks from what you are doing to spend quality time together. Enjoy a cuddle, sing a song, play or read a book together. It is very important to babies that they are able to see you and hear you because your presence makes them feel secure - so always stay close. Toddlers - Preschoolers - As with infants, make sure your toddler is not hungry or thirsty and that he is clean and comfortable. Place your little one in a childproof area nearby so you can see one another. Toddlers and preschoolers love toys that are manipulative and colourful such as Duplo building blocks, farm sets and train sets. They also love to dress up! Every 30 minutes or so reward their good behaviour by taking a break and doing something together.

Create a den by draping sheets over furniture (that he will then spend the rest of the morning in) or make a simple fruit salad together. Although it is tempting to sit children in front of a screen, it is no secret that passively watching television is linked with some unhealthy outcomes in kids - including obesity, trouble sleeping, weak muscle strength and more. School-Aged Children - It is not as difficult to get work done when you have school-aged kids. They are more self-sufficient and thus, will need less supervision than younger ones. This is not to say that school-aged children don’t need to be supervised. Calm and quiet activities such as board games, jigsaw puzzles, and books can engross your children and are something fun and educational they can do while you work. Alternatively, you could create a small activity station and put them to ‘work’ too. Provide paper, markers, stencils, glitter, glue, stickers etc. and give your children the task of creating a number of birthday, Eid or Christmas cards for friends and family. This way, they work alongside you and will share your sense of accomplishment once all your tasks are completed. www.mydubaiconnection.com 5/26/13 2:44 PM

Fever - friend not foe Fever is one of mankind’s oldest manifestations of disease. It is probably also one of the most misunderstood and mistreated.

T

he most common reason why parents fear fever is because of the misconception that high fever can cause brain damage. In a study published in 2012, 90% of parents surveyed were worrried about brain damage caused by high fever. Unfortunately, those who should allay these fears are also at fault. In another interesting study published in 2012, the vast majority of paediatricians said they prescribed antipyretics (medicines to reduce fever) to avoid ‘complications’ of fever. The most important things a parent should know about fever are: 1. Fever is not a disease, it is only a symptom of an underlying disease, which in all probability is an infection. 2. Treating fever cannot cure the disease. The aim of treating fever is to reduce the discomfort associated with fever. 3. Fever from infections never causes brain damage. Brain damage from a fever generally will not occur unless the fever is over 42°C (107.6°F). Untreated fevers caused by infection will seldom go over 105°F.

Does my child have a fever?

As a general rule, temperatures above the following are considered as fever: • Recorded underarm: Above 37.3°C or 99.2°F. • Recorded in the mouth or ear: Above 37.8°C or 100°F. • Recorded in the rectum: Above 38°C or 100.4°F.

Does the level of fever correspond to severity of underlying infection?

No. High fevers can occur with mild viral infections and vice versa. The child’s age, overall condition and other symptoms are more important in deciding the treatment.

Medications for fever

Use medications only when the child has discomfort associated with the fever. A playful child running a fever of 102°F does not need treatment. Paracetamol and Ibuprofen are the only medicines approved for fever treatment in children and Ibuprofen should only be used for children older than six months. It should not be given to children who are vomiting constantly or are dehydrated. Diclofenac sodium (Voltaren suppository) is not an approved treatment for fever.

Are suppositories more effective than oral medications?

No. The only reason for giving a suppository is when the child cannot tolerate oral medications because of vomiting or other reasons.

Is sponging effective?

Along with giving medications, it gives a small effect. Only use water at room temperature. In most cases you should give general care like a normal diet, plenty of fluids, light clothing and a comfortable environment. Infants less than three months of age must be taken to a paediatrician. Monitor the child for other alarming symptoms. If any of these occur or if the fever lasts more than two days, seek medical attention. With thanks to Dr Manoj Chandran, Specialist Paediatrician, at Mediclinic Beach Road. Call 04-3797711 for appointments. MOH No. 1238/2/6/30/6/13

ANIMAL magic

DENTAL care for PETS

T

here is an easy way to extend your pet’s life by three to five years, and that is to keep your cat’s or dog’s teeth clean. Similarly to what happens in humans, periodontal problems in animals cause immediately recognisable troubles such as tartar, gingivitis and tooth loss. Those conditions, if left untreated, will cause bacteria to enter the blood stream through little ruptures of the blood vessels in the gums, thus colonising vital organs such as liver, kidney and heart, forming microabscesses and even infection of the heart valves. Dental disease affects 68% of cats and 78% of dogs over the age of three years, with smaller dogs being more prone to such issues than larger breeds. But how do you realise your pet has a teeth-related issue? A change in behaviour can give you a clue. A dog that withdraws when you stroke him on the head, or picks up some dry food from the bowl and then drops it may have some pain in

his mouth. In addition, cats tend to become more elusive and quieter than usual. At this point check your pet’s gums, if they are more red than pink and they smell unpleasant then book a trip to the vet. If your vet confirms that your pet has a dental issue, you will be offered professional cleaning that will help remove tartar and plaque under the gum line. This procedure requires general anesthaesia, so at the same time it will be possible to examine the whole oral cavity, taking x-rays if needed, and removing loose or decayed teeth. Once your pet has recovered a bright smile, you can plan a brushing routine to prevent a new presentation of the problem. You cannot force an animal to have his teeth brushed, so it is important to choose the right time, for example when he is still sleepy after a nap, or before a meal, so food will become a sort of reward for a good clean. It is advisable not to use human tooth paste as it contains too much fluoride which is toxic for animals. A wide choice of toothpaste for pets is available. Start by introducing your finger with a dab of the paste in your pet’s mouth, gently rubbing the gums for a few minutes and repeat the process every day, as if you are playing. After some time (days, or weeks) you can try with a soft children’s toothbrush or an animal one. The most comfortable position for cleaning the teeth of a small dog or a cat is on your lap with your pet’s head facing away from your body. Use your left hand to brush the right side of the mouth and vice versa. Feel your way and, since you have to brush only the outside of the teeth, don’t worry about opening the mouth. For a larger dog, face him while he is sitting, or standing, then insert your finger or toothbrush in his closed mouth and rub the outside top and bottom gums for about one minute. Finally, don’t forget to reward your pet with a toy or a lot of praise. With thanks to Dr Natascia Riccieri, PetZone. Call 04-3467870 or visit www.petzoneonline.com for more information.

It’s that time of year again, where many of us are heading back home for the summer and want to look our very best as we’re meeting up with family and friends, or getting ready to hit the beach.

B

eauty is what Dubai does best, and there is no shortage of high quality salon treatments right here in the UAE. Connector gives you a round up of some of these, to have you looking your very best as you head to the airport. When it comes to a pre-summer beauty countdown, the first thing to address would be medi spa treatments for the face and body, as these may require a few weeks for results to appear. For an amazing instant boost for your skin, combine Microdermabrasion with Mesotherapy. Your therapist will recommend the best cocktail of products to be injected or infused into your face and neck, depending on your skin’s requirements. Usually a Hyalaronic acid is used for moisture and a combination of anti-ageing, lifting, smoothing or skin tightening products are used for maximum effect. This treatment can be continued after you travel by using a dermaroller to apply the mesotherapy products yourself at home, allowing you to maintain and improve upon the results on a weekly basis. My favourite treatment for both face and body is Radio Frequency skin tightening. This multi function service will give you instant and long term results in the treatment of sagging skin, improvement and elimination of fine lines and wrinkles, skin tightening of the body after weight loss and a significant reduction in cellulite. By heating the dermis (the lower level of the skin) and without damaging the epidermis (the surface layer) a hand piece, conducted by oil or gel is super heated and passed over the areas to be treated. This heat causes the underlying collagen to contract, and the skin tightens. Radiofrequncy is non-invasive and safe for all skin types. If you are holidaying on a beach this summer I highly recommend Radio Frequency - it is excellent for legs, upper arms, abdomen, backs and bums, although for significant results a course of treatments is required. RF is also excellent in the treatment of face and most noticably the neck where results are instantly evident and a great cofidence booster for women in their 40’s and 50’s who in a recent survey highlighted necks and jowls as the most worrying signs of ageing. www.mydubaiconnection.com Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 89

LPG Endermology is another staple treatment that when used regularly can offer excellent results in the treatment of cellulite, and the removal of stubborn fat. A course of 2 to 3 sessions per week for a month can then be maintained by just one to two sessions monthly. Various technologies are available including CelluM6, Endermolab, the Huber Motion lab and Endermolift for the face, all found at your local salon or clinic as well as the Wellbox systems for home use. As your holiday grows closer an excellent treatment is an old fashioned moroccan bath or hammam. Stripping away dirt, grime and dead skin cells to reveal brighter looking skin, this treatment is excellent at the end of a long hot Dubai day, and lovely when combined with a relaxing body massage directly after. If you are planning a fake or spray tan before your holiday, invest in this or a body scrub the day before for the best results and a streak free tan. Alternatively, a few sessions on a sunbed or vertical tanning unit will prep your skin and have you ready for the beach. Follow the manufacturers instructions regarding exposure time to build and maintain a safe suntan indoors. Hair is your crowning glory and a few well planned hair appointments before your trip will help get your locks in great shape this summer. Repair is key in this part of the world and in our hot, humid climate, with added stress factors of swimming in pools and the sea, water quality, sunbathing and regular styling with hairdryers and irons, all of us need to factor repair and conditioning treatments into our haircare regime. A good stylist is a must. He or she will provide you with well cut, conditioned and coloured hair that suits your face shape, features, complexion and lifestyle. Most women treat hair after it is coloured to recover and bring back moisture and shine, although in our salons we encourage clients to repair the hair prior to a major service to protect the hair against damage and get the maximum result from the colour or chemical process. My all time favourite hair treatment is Biolustre from the US. It is unique in that it is an instant hair reconstructor and repairs and gives shine like nothing I have seen in my almost 30 years in the salon business.

Completely natural, they are 100% safe for your own hair and scalp. Pretty nails are a vacation must, and there are literally hundreds of salons and nail bars to cater for your needs. As many of us travel for a month or more in the summer, a great way to elongate the life of your nail care is with a semi permanent or permanent nail product like acrylic, gel or a gel polish. These last longer than

a traditional varnish treatment and won’t chip or break. Gel nails or nail extensions are a great way to have a perfect set of well shaped and even length nails. A gel application of french polish will keep your nails looking pretty for up to a month. A gel is applied and then cured under a bright light for added strength and resilience. Acrylics gel’s and gel polishes such as Shellac and gelish are also available in a rainbow of colours. Ask your local salon for details. A great way to finish off your summer beauty regime, and one of the most amazing ways to transform your beauty, is with the professional application of eyelash extensions. This is an extremely popular treatment and can be found in most salons in the UAE. Our own lash brand trainer Mary from Lash Queen recommends that you visit a well qualified practitioner, preferably by recommendation. Lash extensions are stunning and can really transform the face when professionally aplied, although it is important to care for and nourish your natural lashes both during and in between wearing extensions. A good tip is to tint your lashes and thread or wax brows before the lash application and regularly comb or brush your lash extensions into shape. Last minute tips: To arrive at your destination looking fresh, avoid tea and coffee and drink lots of water during your flight home and moisturise your skin well on the plane. Tie your hair or wrap in a silk scarf to avoid static and try to move every few hours or perform in seat exercises on a long haul flight. Have fun and enjoy your summer.

Skincare,

more than just good genes Skincare begins from infancy and should be continued throughout your life, and this rule applies to every skin type. Problems can occur at any time during one’s life and can be caused by many contributing factors. It is important to identify your skin type and follow a suitable regime to take care of it.

S

unscreen - skin must be protected with an appropriate sunblock in all seasons and at all times. One must keep in mind that sun damage is a cumulative process. It is important to moisturise regularly, particularly in dry and hot weather, after showering and after contact with any detergent materials. Skincare against ageing must begin in the 20s. A sunscreen moisturiser is an absolute must, apart from using an appropriate skin cleanser for your skin type. It is important to keep your skin protected from harmful factors such as insomnia, smoking, sun exposure without sufficient protection, stress, excessive make-up and products that claim to rejuvenate. During the 30s, a monthly skincare regime can be adopted. Microdermabrasion and some superficial peels or vitamin-infused masks based on the dermatologist’s consultation is recommended every six months. If there is any critical skin care problems that need to be attended to, expert care is necessary. During the 40s, it varies from individual to individual, their skin types, their skin issues and body make-up. 92 | JUNE Connector Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 92

Apart from the regular skin regime, one must consult a specialist before treating the skin to any new treatment or therapy. This is the age that shows deeper lines, wrinkles and pigmentation changes. The market has many products that can help with superficial lines and wrinkles. Ageing is a natural phenomenon, but through proper skin care, one can delay the process. During the 50s and 60s, a shorter interval between skin care procedures should be maintained. Recently, non-surgical procedures have become more popular with people looking for conservative methods of skin care. Cosmetic specialists generally recommend surgical methods during the 50s and 60s. This of course depends on a personal desire for surgical procedures. During the 40s, the skin continues to have a collagen breakdown and slows down production. Elastin fibres are not as strong as in the 20s and 30s, and one has to combat hormonal changes, as well. See a professional and follow a good skincare regime with products that address the signs of ageing. Exposure to the sun and some skin diseases can be a cause of premature ageing. When signs, such as fine or deep static wrinkles, sagging and loosening of skin, appear at an early age, the problem must be examined by a dermatologist as there are parameters that are used by dermatologists to define premature ageing. Nutrition, stress levels, heredity, hydration and sun protection all play a vital role in healthy, glowing skin.

Caviar Repair at Purity Salon

Tried

&

If you’re looking for a treatment to restore your damaged hair back to its crowning glory, I can highly recommend the Caviar Repair hair treatment. What’s it for? The Caviar Repair treatment by Alterna rebuilds, resurfaces and restores each individual strand of hair from the inside out by targetting hair damage at a microscopic level. What’s involved? My treatment commenced with shampoo and conditioning using Caviar Repair products. This was followed by the application of a MicroBead Fill & Fix Treatment Masque, (a deeply reparative treatment with water-activated microbeads which release a highly concentrated dose of Strand-Building Proteins). I was placed under a steamer for a very relaxing 20 minutes whilst the masque penetrated my hair, then the masque was washed out. After a quick and easy blow dry I was looking great and ready to go! What are the results? I was very happy with the results and will definitely be having this treatment again. My hair was instantly restored to its healthy, pre-damaged state, and is stronger, smoother, softer and shinier. Caviar Repair hair products have also been clinically proven to reduce hair breakage by 95%. How much? Prices start from Dhs 400 and depend on the length and volume of your hair.

If you suffer from dull, wrinkled, tiredlooking skin and want to recapture your youthful appearance, help is literally at hand with Rebecca Treston’s Face Lift Massage Therapy treatment. What’s it for? This revolutionary procedure uses highlyadvanced Bio Electrical Acceleration Management technology (B.E.A.M) to activate facial muscles, resulting in skin lifting and tightening with immediate visible improvement. What’s invovled? The treatment commenced with a thorough facial cleanse. Using electro-fabric gloves, nicknamed ‘Magic Hands’ my face was massaged for 30 minutes. By using a micro-current of electricity, the gloves ensure energy is equally distributed into the different layers of the skin, causing instant strengthening of the muscles and tightening of lax skin. A prescriptive mask is then applied followed by moisturiser and an SPF sunscreen. The Face Lift Massage Therapy treatment is pain-free and is also suitable for the décolleté area, and hands. What are the results? After one session the results are instant and impressive. Not only was my skin firmer and tighter, but my jaw line and neck had lifted and deep wrinkles and lines had diminished. For long-lasting results a series of six to 12 sessions is recommended.

The Caviar Facial at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery Caviar is said to add a wealth of minerals and vitamins to the skin to nourish and reduce the signs of ageing. A-List celebs including Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and supermodel Kate Moss are believed to be fans. But here in the UAE we’ve been slightly slower in progressing from eating caviar to smearing it on our faces in the name of beauty - we’ve been missing out!

What’s involved?

The facial starts with a Microdermabrasion treatment to get rid of all those dead skin cells and allow the caviar to be absorbed better. After my skin was totally clean an oxygen mask was left on for a few minutes followed by the liquid caviar which was left on for 20 minutes and then gently peeled away.

What are the results?

This treatment will stimulate even the most tired skin, it encourages cell metabolism in all skin types as the minerals and caviar extracts penetrate deep into the skin leaving it nourished and revitalised. This unique facial hydrates, lifts, firms and smoothes the skin with powerful antioxidants. The day after my treatment my skin was glowing and I looked really radiant and luminous. As an added bonus the fine lines around my eyes were reduced and my skin felt really plump and hydrated. A great treatment!

How much?

The Caviar Facial is priced at Dhs 750.

The Obagi Blue Peel Radiance If you are looking for a safe, mild, nonsurgical chemical facial peel that helps to reverse the signs of ageing, I can highly recommend Obagi Blue Peel Radiance at Obagi MediSpa, at Dubai Mall.

What’s it for?

This chemical peel is performed by a dermatologist and provides instant rejuvenation by eliminating the effects of ageing, sun damage, and other skin conditions. Surface layers of dead skin cells are exfoliated and replaced by healthier ones allowing the skin’s own clarity and tightness to resurface.

What’s involved?

Following an in-depth skin consultation, a salicylic acid-based facial chemical peel is applied to the skin, exfoliating the uppermost damaged skin layers. The procedure takes no longer than 30 minutes and is virtually painless, except for a slight hot and tingly feeling. With no downtime I was able to return to the office immediately after the treatment.

\What are the results?

The results are fabulous. My skin immediately looked radiant, smoother, tighter, and younger. A few days later I noticed some slight flakey peeling and dryness, a week later my skin was looking better than I have ever remembered it. After a month, I am extremely happy with the overall improvement in my skin’s texture and tone.

How much?

NEW dads’

BIGGEST fears - sorted

Most first-time fathers-to-be are naturally extremely nervous about what to expect when their first child is born. Here, we look at new dads’ top ten fears about imminent parenthood - and explain why they really don’t have anything to worry about! by Alex Gazzola 100 | JUNE Connector Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 100

ig hairy spiders, your team being knocked out of the first round of the cup, losing your hair or turning silver-topped, having to wear size 40-inch waisted trousers, your wife drooling over Brad Pitt at the movies - these are all the trivial things you spend your time fretting about, aren’t they? But what about those all too genuine fears you experience when you become a father for the first time? Who’s there to help you with those? We know that that first year of fatherhood can be a particularly tense and tricky period for new dads, so here we look at the ten biggest worries you’re likely to suffer during the early days of parenting and then kick each and every one firmly into touch.

it won’t always be like that. The anticipation of these changes is sometimes scarier than their reality. Things will eventually settle down.’

1. “I’m going to drop the baby!”

4. “I’ll never be one of the guys again!”

‘This is a common fear because babies are so tiny and delicate and look so fragile,’ says Jack O’Sullivan of support group and fathers information resource Fathers Direct (www.fathersdirect.com). ‘New fathers feel so protective towards their babies and desperately don’t want to hurt them.’ Jack adds that new fathers shouldn’t let this stop them from holding and bonding with their little ones. ‘It does take a while to get confident handling a newborn,’ he says. ‘But it will get easier - it’s a fear men get over quickly once they gain confidence.’

2. “My partner’s going to love the baby more than she loves me!”

Family and parenting advisor Vicki Shotbolt disagrees. ‘The fact is that you’re both going to love the baby more than you’ve ever loved anyone,’ she says. ‘But it’ll be a different kind of love. Of course your relationship with your partner will change in many ways, both physically and emotionally. But you must remember that even if these changes are overwhelming to begin with, www.mydubaiconnection.com Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 101

3. “The baby won’t really need me!”

Oh yes he will. You, as father, will be the primary male in his life, a vital role model, the one he comes to know and love first. ‘There will be plenty for both parents to do when they have a new baby,’ says Jack O’Sullivan. ‘There’s a tendency in our society to infantalise men, which undermines their confidence in their own parenting skills. Yet research shows that men can be extremely competent in all areas in which women and mothers excel - breastfeeding excepted!’ ‘There is no greater life-changing event than becoming a parent,’ says Vicki Shotbolt, ‘but that doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to spend time with your male friends. Yes, your interests will broaden and change, but that doesn’t mean your old life will disappear. Some of your friends may be fathers or will be thinking of becoming fathers in the future, and you’ll probably find that these men will be interested in hearing about your experiences of fatherhood.’

5. “I’m going to be a terrible father!”

‘I think soap operas and TV dramas are to blame for this fear,’ says Jack O’Sullivan. ‘We often see characters starting off as doting dads then turning into wife-beaters or outand-out losers or criminals. This perception discourages men, and influences them negatively. The trick is to turn it on its head and say, “Actually, I’m going to be a good father”. Some women are surprised when they see their partner taking to fatherhood naturally, but the plain reality is that most men are actually rather good at it.’ Connector JUNE | 101 5/26/13 2:45 PM

6. “I’ll have nobody to talk to!”

‘A fear of isolation is common,’ says Jack. ‘Men tend to confide in their partners, and if she is caught up with the baby a lot of the time, they’ll have less opportunities to talk.’ While it’s important to make time to share your feelings and experiences of fatherhood with your partner, Jack recommends joining or forming a local fathers group or organisation which give support to new dads, because, as he says, ‘If all your male friends are childless, sometimes it can be hard talking to someone who is not a parent.’

7. “I won’t be able to provide for my family!”

Everyone worries about money when a new addition to the family arrives, and this can manifest itself in fears about your job security and redundancy. ‘In the early days, men are often tired at work and walk around like zombies, feeling and looking terrible,’ says Jack. ‘But in my experience, work colleagues and bosses will make allowances in the early weeks, and then after that they’ll just forget that you’re a new parent and won’t notice if you’re not quite as efficient as you used to be.’ You’ll also find that doting grandparents will be more than willing to lend a hand if you’re struggling to make ends meet, but don’t forget to claim any allowances.

parents is to say that these events - while awfully tragic - are terribly, terribly rare. With regard to vaccinations and healthcare, our advice is to talk through every fear you have with your GP, who will be happy to discuss all your concerns to help you make fully informed decisions when the time comes.’

9. “I’m going to die and there’ll be nobody to look after my family!”

‘Many new fathers make drastic lifestyle changes once their first baby is born,’ says Jack, ‘simply because they realise that they have new responsibilities and can’t afford to die anymore.’ While mortality rates in men under 50 are very low, for your own peace of mind, your health, and those of your partner and child, it is definitely worthwhile giving up smoking, cutting down on alcohol and adopting a healthier diet when you become a parent. You’ll feel better for it, and make a much better - and longer-living - father.

10. “I can’t have a career and bond with my baby!”

Of course you can. Spending time with your new baby is vitally important so that you both bond in the early days. So don’t put excessive pressure on yourself to be at work at all hours - your baby needs you too.

8. “I won’t be able to protect my family!”

‘This can be an overwhelming fear,’ says Vicki. ‘There’s a whole raft of things fathers worry about - accidents, lifethreatening germs, severe illness and terrible events like child abduction that we’re all exposed to via the media. The only way we can reassure 102 | JUNE Connector Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 102

Stay hydrated

S

ummer is here and so is the scorching heat, humidity and dehydration. The rising temperatures can leave you feeling fatigued if you don’t keep yourself hydrated. Here are eight ways to stay hydrated and healthy during summer.

Always carry a bottle of water: Having a water bottle with you at all times makes it easy for you to drink water without even thinking about it. Make water tasty: Add natural flavours to it such as mint leaves, lemon, sliced cucumber or strawberry. You are likely to drink more water if it tastes good.

Drink water even when indoors:

Normally, people do not drink enough water because they don’t feel thirsty. Even when you are indoors you still get dehydrated. Make it a point to drink at least eight glasses of water everyday whether you’re thirsty or not.

Drink water before exercising: Drink plenty of water before exercising to maximise your workout and not end up feeling dehydrated and dizzy. Coconut water: Coconut water is the best liquid for hydration. It contains a host of vitamins and minerals which can keep dehydration at bay. Avoid alcohol: Alcohol and aerated drinks dehydrate your body. Drink a glass of water after each hard drink and substitute fizzy drinks with sparkling water. Chew your water: By chewing water, we mean, eat foods that are filled with water such as watermelon, grapes and berries. Watermelon contains 90% water and is a refreshing way to stay hydrated. Drink water before your meals:

Drinking a glass of water before meal keeps you hydrated and fills you up so you’re less likely to overeat. With thanks to Good Habits, visit www.goodhabitsuae.com. 104 | JUNE Connector Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 104

MALE infertility Micro-TESE

E

verybody knows that women may have problems conceiving children. But men can also have difficulties, and it is as common as infertility in women (around 40%). Some men have low numbers of sperm (low sperm count), or swimmers that do not work well (low motility). Others may have dead sperm or even no sperm at all (azoospermia), and some men are unable to produce an ejaculate. If a man has any of those problems it can be difficult to get his wife pregnant naturally. But thanks to the advancements in reproductive technology we can now obtain sperm via the following methods:

TESA

Testicular Sperm Aspiration refers to the procedure used to obtain sperm from the male reproductive tract. This procedure is used to treat male infertility due to absence of or extremely low sperm count in the male ejaculate. TESA involves a needle biopsy of the testicle. This is done as an office procedure using sedation or local anesthesia. A very fine needle is gently inserted into the testicle. The amount of tissue obtained is low because the thin needle removes only a thin sliver of tissue. The sperm sample collected will be used in the laboratory to fertilise the wife’s eggs which would have been collected in an IVF procedure (in vitro fertilisation). Alternatively, the sperm can be frozen and used later. Sperm can be frozen for years and used any time the couple decides to have a baby. 106 | JUNE Connector Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 106

Most men diagnosed with “non-obstructive azoospermia” now have hope to make their wives pregnant with sperm obtained using a modern technique called “microsurgical testis sperm extraction” or “micro-TESE”. This new procedure allows for sperm to be found even if one or more sperm retrievals done earlier using different methods did not produce usable sperm for in-vitro fertilisation (IVF). The new technique allows the surgeon to actually see the tissue thereby enabling him to more intensively identify the microscopic tubules in the testis that may contain mature sperm. Once these tiny tubules are retrieved, a highly experienced laboratory specialist extracts the sperm from them for in-vitro fertilisation. Last month a clinic in Dubai performed the technique on seven men, finding sperm in four of them. “This is a breakthrough,” said the Medical Director at the centre, “because childless couples now have hope of making a family”. In most cases, the doctor may need to provide medication for one to four months to help produce sperm, which can then be obtained using TESA or Micro-TESE, depending which procedure is more suitable for the case. A man can find out if he has any sperm problems by a simple semen analysis where he provides a sample in a clinic and have the results the same day.

The dilemma of

teeth replacement Whenever the issue of replacing a missing or hopeless tooth arises, the discussion often boils down to this question, “What should I do, a bridge or an implant?”

A

s a matter of fact, it is a dis-service to the patient to generalise. There is no “one size fits all” solution, and the correct answer is often reached on a case by case basis. Let’s start by some helpful definitions in simple terms. A dental implant is a little titanium screw placed under the gum for a period of three to four months to which bone fuses all around before a crown (visible tooth) is connected. Whereas a bridge is fabricated by trimming ‘prepping’ anchor teeth on both sides of the gap before a metal and/or ceramic substructure is fixed (cemented) over the anchor teeth. It may surprise you to know that implants are a more conservative choice compared to bridges. Implants spare unfilled or healthy ‘virgin’ teeth from trimming for the sole purpose of replacing a missing tooth. It is becoming evident that implants help hold up bone levels where teeth were lost, which would otherwise disappear like any unused body part. Just because the word ‘implant’ rings as a technically invasive procedure does not mean it is an aggressive form of treatment, quite the opposite for the former reasons. While implants excel bridges with a success rate of 90 to 96% in studies over 15 years, still the survival rate of bridges is reasonably favourable (87% success rate between 10 to 14 years with failures increasing after 15 years). Obviously since these numbers are based on means and averages, one can see a 25 year old bridge still functioning when properly fabricated by dentist and maintained by the patient. Perhaps the most important factor is the condition of surrounding teeth: when teeth on both sides of the missing tooth (gap) are heavily filled or have cavities, a bridge becomes 108 | JUNE Connector Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 108

the obvious cost effective choice as the goal of both replacing a missing tooth and reinforcing or ‘fixing’ anchor teeth is achieved. When such teeth are ‘virgin’, implants are more favourable.

Other considerations favouring implants: • Bridges require manual dexterity for hygiene (special flossers), challenging those lacking homecare skills by will or condition (e.g. arthritis). • Those prone to cavities beyond the average person, will have no worries about decay with implants.

Other considerations favouring bridges:

• Systemic conditions posing problems for implants (heavy smoking or severe osteoporosis). • Patients not keen on prolonged procedures such as bone augmentation, if needed prior to implants. • Frequent clenching or grinding (bruxers) may do better with bridges (implants disfavour very high biting forces). Obviously, the above considerations vary in their significance, tipping the scale to the other alternative should one consideration raise a major concern for the patient. Since we strive to achieve the best care irrespective of finances, whether one chooses a bridge or an implant, it is always true that the best investment one can make is self improvement. There is no other aspect that is more valid than health, as health impacts mental, social and professional wellbeing. So keep smiling.

elete electrolyte hydration We all know how important it is to stay hydrated in the dry desert heat but water alone may not be enough, especially during summer.

What is it?

elete electrolyte concentrate is the only 100% pure and natural, no sugar, no calorie, scientifically tested and probably most effective ionically charged electrolyte hydration drink product in the world. It is derived from the evaporation of the mineral-rich water of the Great Salt Lake in Utah with nothing else added. When you are dehydrated the normal water content of your body is reduced, which upsets the balance of minerals (salts and sugar) in your body. elete contains all four of the key electrolytes together with other beneficial naturally occurring trace and ultra trace elements and enables the body to; maintain hydration, prevent muscle cramps, sustain energy and endurance and enhance mental focus.

What are the results?

I’ve started adding elete to most drinks especially water. I’ve noticed that I’m getting less headaches and definitely feel more hydrated. It’s perfect for when I’ve been out horse riding in the desert. I drink it before and after it stops me feeling hot and groggy.

How much?

The 25ml bottle costs Dhs 45, the 120ml refill bottle costs Dhs 75, and the 480ml team bottle costs Dhs 235. Available from Nutrition Zone, Organic Foods & Café, Adventure HQ, Intersport and Wolfi’s Bike Shop. -L.C. 110 | JUNE Connector Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 110

The new eyewear makeover service at ISEE Eyewear As I don’t need my glasses often, not much thought went into choosing my last pair, I simply went for the first pair that didn’t make me look like Dame Edna Everage!

What is it?

ISEE is a boutique eyewear outlet that offers a unique one-on-one service; matching your face and personality to your optometry needs to create a perfect look. The all-inclusive service started with a 40-minute consultation with resident optometrist and eyewear consultant Murad Sharabati, which included an eye examination followed by a one-onone assessment of face shape, lifestyle and personality. Next I tried on a variety of frames from the extensive collection. ISEE stocks a wide range of eyewear from leading designer brands such as Prada and Dior , as well as independent and upcoming brands such as Specs Addict and Creative

What are the results?

My new glasses are quite striking, completely different from anything I’ve had before. Plus they are comfortable, so apart from the compliments I can forget I’m even wearing them!

How much?

An eye test is priced at Dhs 100, which is redeemable against a purchase. The eye make over service is free but appointments must be made. ISEE Eyewear is located in the Al Barsha Boutique Building in Al Barsha 1. To book your complimentary eye test call 04-4472265 or email hello@iseeeyewear.com for more information. -L.C. www.mydubaiconnection.com 5/26/13 2:46 PM

Your Horoscope GEMINI 21 May - 20 Jun

by Capella

SAGITTARIUS 22 Nov - 21 Dec

Make the most of the vibrant energy you are likely to experience with Mars in Gemini all month. You should be able to forge ahead with numerous projects commencing on the 8th with the inspiring new Moon; also in Gemini, which should kick off some magical financial success. After the 17th enjoy a sense of wellbeing for the rest of the month.

With sexy, energetic Mars, the radiant Sun and bountiful Jupiter all in your house of partners one can only imagine you enjoying the best of times. Irritability may play havoc with your nerves if you indulge in a risky investment around the 7/8th. Keep difficulties to yourself until the 17th, when you should be confident of a successful outcome.

CANCER 21 Jun - 22 Jul

Find time to and tone your body and improve your health with much needed exercise, whilst energetic Mars and the fiery Sun highlight this area of your chart. Partners may not feel the need to join you around the 11/12th, so look for some steady and reliable friends for company until the 21st when loved ones should be more receptive to trips out.

Mercury and Venus are in Cancer for most of June generally inspiring excellent communications with everyone. If you experience irritability between the 6th and 12th you would be well advised to keep matters to yourself until the 25th, when people will realise your success has not been due to a mystical experience but an organised and disciplined agenda.

LEO 23 Jul - 22 Aug

Disruptive, but exciting travel plans, may find you far from home whilst Uranus, the planet of change, sits in an area of your chart representing overseas and philosophical matters. Numerous planets highlight group activities and successful financial wish fulfillment over a long held dream. A friendly environment has you enthralled.

VIRGO 23 Aug - 22 Sep

CAPRICORN 22 Dec - 19 Jan

AQUARIUS 20 Jan - 17 Feb

Saturn, still in the uppermost area of your chart, indicates possibilities of leadership in a work environment. Take time to really consider the benefits of potential long term rewards if a deal is promoted, which does not initially offer much remuneration. Practical issues should be resolved after the 9th of July when retrograde Saturn moves forward.

PISCES 18 Feb - 19 Mar

The Sun, Mars and Jupiter all sit in the uppermost area of your chart for most of the month, which is really hot stuff, so make haste prior to the 21st with promoting any career or life changing ideas you may have. Energy is on your side and although partners seem to be half asleep sometimes you should be able to successfully make all the running.

Don’t force issues with physical energy levels whilst the Sun and energetic Mars make difficult aspects to ethereal Neptune, which may dissipate your enthusiasm for exercise for awhile. Instead develop and apply some home based mental pursuit in a learning curve to increase your knowledge in a subject of interest until you feel physically recharged.

LIBRA 23 Sep - 22 Oct

ARIES 20 Mar - 19 Apr

The more time goes by the more determined you may become to resolve any instability in the home. You can’t always have your own way, so give a little and you should gain a lot. By the 25th you won’t want to contradict anyone over their ideas anymore and a comfortable compromise should have been settled - peace reigns.

SCORPIO 23 Oct - 21 Nov

You are particularly gifted at the moment to show control and develop a more serious side to your personality with Saturn, the planet of stability, now in Scorpio. There is a danger of money matters going awry in early June, so beware of being unduly influenced by a glamorous situation when someone may attempt to make profit for themselves alone. 112 | JUNE Connector Connector Mster Layout - June 2013.indd 112

If family conflicts occur on the 7/8/11th and 12th, try to be on your best behaviour and listen properly to other peoples’ opinions, because otherwise you might feel compelled to make rash decisions. Getting out and about on numerous short journeys with friends and neighbours should release tension and benefit anyone who wants to join you.

TAURUS 20 Apr - 20 May

Numerous planets in the financial section of your chart make difficult aspects to vague and ethereal Neptune. Avoid an impractical attitude to monetary matters and give some deep thought to the needs of loved ones; be they siblings or partners before you make life changing decisions. Artistic friends inspire some happy hours. www.mydubaiconnection.com 5/26/13 2:46 PM
