THOUGHTS TO

D PON Pay It Forward -- Get Suspended!

There’s a good will phenomenon that’s taking the world one coffee shop at a time. In the cafes of Cairo, Milan, Paris and Ontario; people are saying it, “COFFEE SUSPENDED!” The stories that have reached our desks were simply heartwarming. The idea behind Coffee Suspended originated from an old Naples tradition of gentlemen purchasing an extra coffee for war-stricken veterans who couldn’t afford to buy their own cup of coffee. Fast forward to 2013; the simplicity of the gesture has spread worldwide.

Cairo: A man stops by a coffee shop before heading off to work and orders two cups of coffee- one regular and the other he refers to as “suspended.” He pays for two, gets only one and exits. Another person walks in, asks the barista, “Can I please get a suspended coffee?” The barista gives the customer a cup of coffee. Toronto: A group of teenagers order frappes and three suspended coffees. A homeless man passes by; the barista comes out with one of

ER

the suspended orders in hand, “Excuse me, sir, looks like you could use some coffee.” Paris: A local grocery has a sign on each of its checkout points, “Suspended Items Available.” A customer asks for his change to be used for suspended bread. The cashier puts a bottle cap in a jar outside the entrance. A less fortunate woman takes the bottle cap, brings it to the counter and she’s given bread and some other items. Social Media users have joined forces to make sure that the word gets to both establishments and people. There are now reports of businesses offering suspended meals, drinks, and basic goods. Surely, Suspended Coffee has a place here in the Kingdom. A good portion of the city dwellers enjoy an abundance of blessings and sometimes we purchase more than we can consume. Imagine how many people each of us can reach out to and help by simply paying it forward and getting “Suspended.”

Thumbs Up to...

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry

Whether we are talking about books, cars, clothes, or food, there is always a price to pay. Sometimes you walk into shops or supermarkets here and find some products do not have price tags. When that happens, customers have to ask how much it costs, but with no guarantee that the seller is giving you the actual price and not more. The Ministry of Commerce and Industry announced that starting from April 11, 2013, all shops are obliged to put price tags on each and every item for sale. If they do not abide by this new rule, customers can call 8001241616 and make a complaint.

Thumbs Down to... Jeddah’s Airport, Again!

This topic has been discussed repeatedly not only in the media and the public, but behind closed doors as well. Jeddah’s airport requires urgent attention in terms of services and construction. The “new airport” has supposedly been under construction for over a year now, so therefore we suggest some immediate temporary fixes in the mean time. Jeddah’s airport is one of the busiest in the world mainly due to the Muslims coming from all over the world to go to Makkah. Airports around the world and in other cities within the Kingdom are beautiful and organized; it should not take this much time for Jeddah’s “new airport.” 8

ADHDSOCIETY Launches in Jeddah

On April 15, the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Society members hosted an event in Jeddah to celebrate their launch in the city, and to educate attendees on the moral and medical support now available to the public.

ADHD is a chronic disorder of the brain that weakens a person’s ability to pay attention and affects about 15% of children throughout the Kingdom. Dr. Suad Adel AlYamani, founder and pediatric neurologist, explained that while early intervention is critical, “there are a limited number of professionals in the Kingdom with the ability to diagnose and treat the disorder.” The ADHD Society and Support Group was founded in 2009 in Riyadh as the first association in the entire Middle East dedicated to this cause. The ADHD Society aims to raise the quality of life for people with ADHD by improving services available for them and raising awareness. Since 2009, they have initiated several projects to raise awareness including workshops, trainings and lectures. The event on the 15th was attended by over 100 influential ladies and included a display of homemade food items to raise money for charity. A competition between 12 talented chefs also took place as they contested for the title of “Best Dish.” 22 DESTINATION JEDDAH

Dr. Al-Yamani also encouraged the participation of physicians, educators, caretakers and students to volunteer with the ADHD Society by becoming advocates and spreading awareness.

Baby Fitaihi’s

DesignCompetition

Earlier this year in February, Baby Fitaihi launched a watch design competition for girls between the ages of eight and twelve. Baby Fitaihi is a brand of contemporary jewelry designs made especially for babies and children. Over 800 schoolgirls from grades three to six participated in the competition from five of Jeddah’s top schools. One hundred finalists were then selected and invited to a ceremony held at Park Hyatt for the announcement of twelve winners and a celebration.

The girls were given four months and five main criteria for design: “Use of the same theme, colors, motifs that cope with Baby Fitihi, in addition to the innovation and neatness of the work itself,” explained Mohammad Fitaihi, founder of Baby Fitaihi, as he applauded the girls for their talent and creativity. Three winning entries were chosen from each grade and presented with certificates and ipads, while the remaining finalists received medals and participation certificates.

The winners and finalists have been listed on Baby Fitaihi’s official website: http://www. babyfitaihi.com. The ceremony also included a fashion show where 11 girls presented Baby Fitaihi’s latest jewelry designs. Baby Fitaihi’s efforts towards social responsibility have been greatly appreciated, and many innovative contests like the Watch Design Competition are anticipated. Inspired by the 12 winning designs, Mohammad Fitaihi has developed a watch that will be launched this Ramadan. DESTINATION JEDDAH 23

Shops close for each prayer; always keep that in mind and plan your shopping outing accordingly. Although prayers are conducted five times a day, there are four prayers (Duhur, Asur, Maghreb, and Isha) within 10 AM until midnight. All malls have separate prayer rooms for men and women, so shoppers can pray and window shop until stores and restaurants re-open. Another important fact to keep in mind is that for Isha prayer only (at approximately 8:20 PM), shops are closed for around half an hour.

GROCERY STORES:

Although grocery stores are open 24 hours, the counters are closed during prayer times, which is why right after prayer there is always an extra long line of shopping carts at the counter. Some grocery stores have self-checkout machines beside the counters so if you have the patience and fewer items, feel free to use those instead of waiting in queues at the counter. Aziz Mall is the place for you if you’re running quick errands as it has all the brands, Panda supermarket and an arcade area for children but is easier to navigate for speedy shopping.

GAMES AND ENTERTAINMENT:

Most malls have arcades inside the mall itself, and while this is a perfect way to keep the kids entertained while you shop, the arcades are usually connected to the food courts so especially on weekends and holidays they may be too loud and crowded. If you’re looking to shop and spend time with your family at the same time, Red Sea Mall is the perfect place. In addition to many major brands, Red Sea Mall also has IN10SO; a gaming zone that includes a bowling alley and go karting, and Grow to Glow (an activities center for children). Most malls offer children’s push carts for rent per hour; these are fun for the kids and lifesavers for you as you’re excused from carrying them around while you shop.

RESTAURANTS AND FOOD COURTS:

Some malls have food courts and separate restaurants, while others just have either food courts or restaurants. If you are looking for some peace and quiet within the mall, you may want to avoid food courts that are connected to the kids gaming areas. RESTAURANTS Red Sea Mall: Applebee’s Mall of Arabia: Fridays, The Pizza Company, Al-Balad, Chapter, Fabiano Etoile Center: Steakhouse, The Counter Burger, Piatto, Rossopomodoro, Mugg and Beans Ana Special Mall: Glow, Café Ceramique, Roshana Center: Crepe Café.

OM D N R A T I P S:

• If you’re looking for high-end shopping, head towards the Etoile Center or Ana Special Mall, both luxury malls with some of the best brands and restaurants. • The best time to be at the mall or even at a grocery store if you want to save time or are not too good with crowds is actually in the morning until shops close at 12 PM. • Sales are taken seriously! And during sales malls are very crowded at all times but you don’t want to miss out on the bargains by avoiding the mall at this time. In fact you might want to stock up for later as well. • Don’t be surprised if some malls don’t allow single men into the mall or food court on weekends. Currently Mall of Arabia does not allow singles in from Wednesday to Friday. See directory for list of shops in malls.

“Enlighten and Mentor” is a program Destination Jeddah launched with the aim of providing great young minds with the opportunity to be heard and guided by highly respected leaders of selected fields within our society. The program has been made feasible due to the joined efforts of Destination Jeddah, Injaz, and the mentors. Within our society, we have many brilliant young minds with so much potential. The single aspect that stands in their way is lack of knowledge regarding how they can transform their dreams and ideas into reality. This fact led to the creation of “Enlighten and Mentor.” The leaders and respected mentors taking part with Destination Jeddah in this program are: Thuraya Batarjee (Publishing Specialist), Omar Ajam (Food and Beverage Entrepreneur), Dr. Badr Al Shibani (Fitness Expert and Entrepreneur), Kaswara Al Khatib (Advertising Specialist), Essa Al Odeh (Mechanic Genius), Zina Nabulsi (Beauty Guru), Matt Lawson (Executive Chef), Eyad 30 DESTINATION JEDDAH

The reception was held on the second floor at Romero Restaurant, in which each mentor had an assigned table.

CSR and the Private Sector Not every “good work” is “charity work” and not every “charity work” is a “social responsibility.” Corporate Social Responsibility is becoming the new insurance policy for the private sector. It helps companies answer to their society’s needs, which portray them to be responsible. Most non-profit organizations are always perceived as being “charity” work.

and taking action. Destination Jeddah CEO, Enas Hashani, and Co-Founder, Maria Al Mahdaly, were present and initiated the evening with an introductory and welcome speech after which mentors, mentees, Injaz, and guests began to network and mingle. “Enlighten and Mentor” will last twelve months; during these twelve months, mentors and their mentees will be engaging in meetings and discussions amongst themselves and with Injaz. Their ultimate aim is to create inspiring establishments and serve the purpose of this program, which for mentors is to help pave the road for people with a goal, who just lack and require guidance and wisdom from someone with experience in the given fields, and for mentees to believe in themselves and have confidence in their dreams.

One of the most common mistakes that NPO’s make is neglecting the needs of the private sector and overlooking what it demands. The private sector wants to enhance its credibility in order to be trusted and well respected among society, which will grant them the media recognition they deserve. When proposing a CSR plan, NPO’s must keep in mind that the proposed plan should be relevant to the company’s values and matches their mission so that it would be considered relevant and therefore increase credibility yet intersecting with our country's national needs. By combining both, the private sector would be receiving a clear and set plan for the initiative, a clear indicator that shows the return on investment and the value created by supporting this initiative. The most important aspect of all is the return on investment and the value achieved from specific CSR initiatives. Once the private sector has a clear idea of where the money is spent and how the value is returned, a circle of trust between both NPO’s and private sectors is created, which leaves both party’s satisfied with such experience and are willing to do it again. Therefore, NPO’s must keep in mind that the private sector is always willing to help only if they know what they are being a part of and know the actual value they are adding to society.

Winners of WAM’s

Growing Initiatives Award 2013! By Yousra Elwi

For the past couple of years, April has been marked as the month for celebrating women’s achievements in Saudi Arabia; Women Appreciation Month (WAM) is a dedicated initiative led by femi9, which aims at supporting women and raising public awareness for this cause. The Growing Initiatives Award is this year’s manifesto; the core idea of this activation is supporting women in the start-up phase of entrepreneurship, ensuring that they receive the planned funding, consultation and media exposure needed to take their initiatives to the next level. Three exceptional growing initiatives were selected by the WAM Jury, whose members are: Mr. Eyad Mashat, CEO of Fad International, Dr. Arwa Al a’ama, Vice Mayor of Women’s Section and IT Affairs at the Jeddah Municipality, and Dr. Abdulla Al Ghaddooni, Board Member of Glowork.

THE GROWING INITIATIVES AWARD WINNERS ARE… Ghada Maghrabi Ahazeej (Weddings & Decorations), Petals (Flower Boutique) and Ghada Maghrabi Contracting Company • Tell us about your business, or businesses in your case. Ahazeej and Petals are the tangible manifestation of my passion: art. I love design and décor and found that I have a talent in this field. Ahazeej is a wedding planning company that I started 13 years ago, when this practice was considerably novel in the country. Ahazeej offers personalized event planning services starting from the general aspects to the most specific details, with premium quality and expertise. As for Petals, I launched it six years ago, with a European floristry concept; all flowers are imported, with an exquisite range of both natural and illusion flowers. I have acquired the franchise of the renowned French designer, Emilio Robba, who works with the principle of floral art. I also run a contracting company, which mainly provides interior design services. • How did you start? In addition to my passion for décor, I got exposed to the field of wedding planning at a young age from my aunt, Areej Al Jifri, who 34 DESTINATION JEDDAH

was a wedding planner herself. I got even more interested and started organizing events for friends and family and it rolled from there. As for Petals, I’ve always had a deep admiration for floral art, and I actually took several courses in floristry. • What are your future plans? I’ll be opening Petals in Riyadh soon, serving as both the flower boutique and wedding planner. My vision is to grow Petals regionally and internationally. • What encouraged you to apply for the Growing Initiatives Award? I applied to learn; I believe that we live to learn. I wanted to discuss my business potential with experts and professionals who can offer me substantial consultations.


Reema Engawi and partners Omama Sairawan and Amal Al-Sibai Athr Al Shabab • Tell us about your initiative?

• What are your future plans?

The word Athar means trace or mark, and we believe that every young Muslim should leave a positive mark in his/her society. So this youth club or group performs volunteer work on a regular basis. The youth in the club attend many educational and skills development workshops in order to gain the tools they need to succeed in life and to help others. We also offer our members a variety of courses including time management, photography and Arabic calligraphy. We are a non-profit organization and all courses are offered free of charge.

We plan to visit the pediatric ward of a hospital every month and on a continuous and sustainable basis, with a schedule of events and activities for children facing illnesses. • What encouraged you to apply for the Growing Initiatives Award? We felt this would be our opportunity to learn a lot and to get the head start and support that we need so our project can succeed.

• How did you start? We started Athr Al Shabab two years ago, with the key objective being the practical application of the Islamic teachings. Our aim is to promote volunteer work in the society and elevate public interest for it throughout the community.

Nahid Al Hubail Sky Touch • Tell us about your initiative? Sky Touch is an original idea for gifts and gift-wrapping, offering customers personalized items based on their requests. We are currently located in the Western region where such services are still hard to find. • How did you start? I started Sky Touch six months ago, offering the tailored products and delivery. Before that, I have been creating and wrapping gifts for friends and family for ten years.

• What encouraged you to apply for the Growing Initiatives Award? My strongest motivation was my interest in going through this new experience and getting a chance to fulfill my dreams. At this stage, media exposure is very important for the growth of my business, as well as professional consultations and funding in the right direction.

• What are your future plans? I plan to expand in Saudi Arabia and across the Gulf Region. I am also planning to provide more creative services for personalized gifts and become an integrated gift consultancy firm. DESTINATION JEDDAH 35

A JOURNEY BACK IN TIME

AL AAN PALACE & THE TRADITIONAL SOUKS OF NAJRAN By Mohammed Mirza

Located at the southern tip of the Kingdom in the desert oasis city of Najran lies the splendid Al Aan Palace, which is in fact the best existing example of traditional Najrani architecture. Najran is situated at around 900 kilometers from Jeddah. The most ideal route to reach it is through the Sarawat mountain range passing through Abha. After driving for over 12 hours, we finally reached Najran at night and were extremely tired so we rested overnight at a local hotel.

The architecture of Najran has been greatly inspired from Yemeni architecture.

The next morning we headed towards the western part of the city where the Al Aan Palace is located and once there, we found our way to the palace without much trouble as the palace dominates the skyline.

The main tower of Al Aan Palace is five storeys high and overlook the oasis from the summit of a rocky outcrop. This palace was built of mud on stone foundations in an architectural style which is the characteristic of the area surrounded by a wall made of mud. This palace has only been around since 1942. Built as a self sustaining complex, it has around 60 rooms, including livestock pens and its own mosque.

The first view that we had of the palace was absolutely amazing coming from the main road, as we saw small charming buildings with traditional Najrani architecture and the remarkable Al Aan Palace located high above on a hilltop in the background.

We walked around the palace and tried to get a view of it from all four corners as we were not allowed to enter. None the less we enjoyed just sitting by it and admiring its beauty. The best view one can get of the palace is from the car park over the oasis.

The Najrani building architecture is very unique. They have a distinctive architectural style compared to the rest of the Kingdom.

Next up we head off to the famed traditional souks of Najran. The traditional souks of Najran have always been one of the

36 DESTINATION JEDDAH


favorite spots for tourists. Just wandering around the narrow lanes of the souk trying to fit in with the locals and viewing the different products up for sale was the most memorable part of our trip. Of the many souks in Najran, the most famous one among them is Souk Al-Jambiyah. This is one of the last places in the Kingdom that you will find merchants selling authentic Jambiyahs "traditional short curved daggers" which are worn by men and come in many shapes and sizes. Although in today’s modern world a Jambiyah may not be required, but it can be a great souvenir to take back as they come with very intricate designs carved on them. Other popular souks are Souk Al Kharrazeen in which varieties of leather goods can be found, Souk al Nisa'a selling items ranging from clothing and textile weavings to spices. There are also many other smaller souks that sell traditional baskets, fresh fruits, jewelry and miniature versions of the typical Najrani buildings. These souks seem to be the most lively places in the otherwise dreary city of Najran. After a memorable walk down the souks we were heading back towards Jeddah, and on our way back we saw some honey sellers near the highway, so without thinking over it twice we bought it. Apparently this region is famed for its honey and a bit of bargaining may even get you a great deal. The honey really lived up to the expectations we had from it. On the whole, the trip was amazing; it was a fantastic experience just sitting by the palace and admiring its beauty. It could have been better if we could have actually gone into the palace and had a guide to help us explore it. The souks were absolutely astounding; a walk down these souks was a very memorable experience with the intense sights and sounds, the sellers vying for attention and the juxtaposition of colors and scenery.

TOP 10 THINGS TO DO In Abha & Around By Layla

Abha region is a very popular holiday destination in the summer due to its beautiful scenery, the famous misty mountain tops and cooling breezes. Tourists from all over the GCC flock here to escape the sweltering summer heat. At an elevation of 2200m above the Red Sea, the area enjoys pleasant weather year round. Asir region has plenty of activities to do, and it might be a challenge to decide between all of the activities. Here is our top ten to-do list from Abha and around:

9 1. The New Abha Resort and The Abha Lake Dam are a must-see. Stroll around the lakeside in the 300,000 square-meter garden and dine at the luxurious Abha Palace Hotel with peaceful views of the lake and city. You can take a scenic cable car ride from the resort to the Green Mountain.

2. Learn about the village by going on a thrilling cable car ride down to Habala, the Hanging Village. This ancient village was built halfway down a cliff face, and it used to be only accessible by ropes. It’s believed that the villagers fled the Ottomans here and lived in isolation completely self-sufficient until they were rediscovered by a Saudi army helicopter. The site is a unique piece of Saudi history but unfortunately it has become quite commercialized in the last few years, however still worth the visit. 3. Drive up to the Green Mountain in

the middle of Abha city. The “mountain” is actually a hill overlooking the city which is beautifully lit with green lights

in the night. There’s a restaurant and café at the top with an outdoor terrace where visitors can enjoy views of Abha. Try the mint tea and sheesha while enjoying the sunset and the cool breeze on the terrace. On the way up be sure to stop at the excellent souvenir shop. There’s also a small restaurant decorated like a traditional Asiri mud house in the basement of the shop.

4. Take a bird watching tour with the Asir Tourism Board to the various parks inside Asir National Park such as Al Qara’a, Al Souda, Al Wardeh, Dalafan, Al Jarrah, and Al Hassab. Wander around the juniper forests and spot some of the 170 bird species that make this region their home. 5. Take in the jaw dropping scenery in Soudah and marvel at the highest mountains in Saudi Arabia including the tallest peak, Jebel Soudah, rising to 2910 meters. The mountains are famous for the mist covering the mountain tops which makes the atmosphere almost mystical. It’s always cool

7 and serene up here. Enjoy a picnic in full privacy with only the wildlife to interrupt the silence.

6. Take the Al Soudah cable car ride down

to Rijal Al Ma’a mud brick village. While you’re there, you should visit the museum, library and the traditional food restaurant or enjoy a stroll in the beautiful valley.

7. Try some extreme sports such as

paragliding or mountain biking down the Soudah Mountains. A French group organizes these in the summer months in addition to rock climbing near Habala.

8. To discover Asir region’s traditional architecture, visit the Shada Palace, Al Milfa Palace and the old mud houses dotted around Abha. The Al Miftaha village turned museum portrays how people lived back in the day.

9. Meet the famous Arabian Baboons that can be spotted beside most of the mountain roads. There’s a population of them near the Soudah cable car ride scavenging food from tourists. Be mindful of children with food in their hands, the baboons might attempt to grab it! 10. Explore the legendary Asiri souqs that

have been named after the days they’ve been held on for centuries; Abha’s Tuesday market (Souq Al Thulatha) and its sister city Khamis Mushayt’s Thursday Market ( Souq al Khamis). The Tuesday market has a separate women’s souq run by all female vendors and the Thursday Market boasts some of the best gold and silver Bedouin jewelry in the region. Other finds are white or gold honey, colorful straw baskets and hats, traditional embroidered women’s dresses, Jambiyah (daggers), frankincense and ‘shabba’ white powder used by locals as a natural deodorant and antiseptic.

LIGHT WISE Travel

By Zareen Muzaffar

Last minute gathering small things, and endlessly thinking of ‘something important’ that we might be forgetting. Summer is here and if you are planning to travel anytime soon here are some tips to gather the most important stuff which can help you travel light and worry free.

1. CHARGERS

Make sure you bundle all your chargers for the phone and camera even before you put your clothes in your suitcase. There are some good travel chargers available in the market for all phones, PDA’s and smart phones. What you don’t want is the inconvenience of finding out you forgot your chargers at home when you unpack after reaching your destination.

2. DOWNLOAD TRAVEL APPS

Most smart phones have applications for travelers for booking hotels, cars, and for checking in before arriving at the airport. Booking hotels in advance using apps such as Kayak.com and hotels.com can save you time and worry. And checking in using your smart phone or laptop will save the hassle of lining up at the counter for a long time unnecessarily. 44 DESTINATION JEDDAH


3. TECH WISE

If your trip is short, why not take your tablet instead of carrying a bulky laptop. These days thanks to the plethora of options available, if you feel taking a laptop is necessary and if you are a frequent traveler, invest in a Microsoft Surface. A powerful PC in tablet form, it has the security and manageability you expect from a PC. Best of all, its extremely light and durable.

4. PACK WISE

Are you one of those who can not travel without a book? It is an essential friend for most travelers so pack wise and take an e-reader instead. You will not only travel light but an e-reader can store hundreds of books and you can chose whatever you’d like to read instead of limiting yourself to one.

5. SAVING DOCUMENTS

Make copies of all your important documents and keep them safe in your carry on. You never know where you might need a copy of your visa or passport. A better idea is to keep copies of your important documents in an encrypted file on your laptop or tablet.

6. LEAVE WHAT YOU DO NOT NEED

Make sure you leave any credit/ bank/ identification cards you won’t need on your journey at home. Take only the essential ones and make sure you keep your wallet or purse with you at all times. Being mindful can save you from bigger worries. SAFE TRAVELS!

MAKING MUSIC By Zareen Muzaffar

Adwa Al Dakheel is a talented Saudi musician in her twenties currently studying Business and Psychology in Boston. Passionate about instrumental music since childhood, she talks to us about her latest acoustic album that is now available at Virgin stores in Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

46 DESTINATION JEDDAH


Q1. Tell us about yourself.

Q5. Do you intend to sing one day?

I was born in Saudi Arabia into a partially Americanized family and a partially cultural Saudi structured family. So I can honestly say I got the best (and the extreme) of both worlds.

Yes, hopefully soon. I would much rather first decide which style I want to sing and what message I want to deliver.

Q2. The first instrument you ever played? Musical background?

I play the baglama and saz - and mostly any string instrument that has a neck and somewhat resembles the guitar’s structure such as the oud too. I am currently learning how to play the violin as well.

My background in music is pretty serendipitous; I was eight when I first decided to purchase a guitar, and knowing that there were no musical training facilities in Saudi Arabia that could teach children how to play or cultivate a potential hobby, I decided to try it out on my own until I got decent tunes out of it. Twelve years later, here I am - the first Saudi female published instrumental recording artist.

Q3. Your music is available on iTunes and your album Adwa is now available in Virgin stores in KSA and UAE. How do you feel about it?

More than it being an independent personal accomplishment, I am more proud of the fact that I am Saudi or that I am from the Gulf in general. This is not solely an accomplishment for myself, but it is more of an accomplishment to all Arab women.

Q4. Tell us about your inspirationwhat inspires you to create music?

I can honestly say that everything inspires me. It could be as simple as passing by one of the poor areas in my town, or as simple as watching the latest news on Syria, Egypt, Palestine or the Middle East. The current circumstances and issues within the Arab world saddens any Arab, as it should. Knowing how to translate this sadness into a tangible song can help deliver a message to the globe.

Q6. What other instruments do you play?

Q7. What do you think about the music scene in Saudi Arabia?

I personally think it still has a long way ahead and there are still a lot of opportunities and room for expansion. It is a booming field right now in Saudi, and the best part about that boom is that it focuses on actual music the music that is considered art.

Q8. Do you feel musicians need more encouragement or exposure in the Kingdom? What are the challenges or inhibitions of being a Saudi musician? Any new industry in general needs to start small and thereafter expand. It was never common for Saudis to be musicians, and that is why I mention it’s a new field. Accordingly, the challenges are of course bigger.

Q9. Where do you record your music? In Jeddah I record my music at Libra Productions. It is a production company managed by the sound engineer and musician, Diya Azzony.

Q10. Tell us about your future tours and performances? I perform in multiple events and fundraisers in the U.S for Syria. I like to focus on the message behind the gigs I perform; that’s why I am more based on low-key performances.

MOST UNUSUAL RESTAURANTS

...where to please your palate this summer

Fun and food are undoubtedly the two most amazing things about being on vacation, but what could be better than an eccentric combination of the two? Whether you’re looking for drama, breathtaking scenery or just a little relaxation, there are a number of bizarre restaurants tucked away in the best vacation spots in the world that cater to both your palate and your entertainment needs.

Dans Le Noir – Paris, France Literally meaning “in the dark,” diners at the Dans Le Noir restaurants treat four out of five of their senses to a matchless experience. Diners are served in a pitch-black dining room where they feel around for their food and drinks, relying solely on their taste-buds and sense of smell to figure out the contents of their plates. To top it off, the waiters leading visitors through this overwhelming experience are actually blind! If you happen to be in Paris this summer, challenge your senses and sentiments by dining at the Dans Le Noir. Other branches of Dans Le Noir are located in New York, London, St Petersburg and Moscow.

Alice – Tokyo, Japan Quite literally a wonderland for bookworms, this Alice in Wonderland themed restaurant is located in Ginza, Tokyo. Surrounded by a magic forest, life-sized pages from the novel and heart-shaped chandeliers, diners are served by waitresses dressed in Alice costumes. Even the food is served with Alice in Wonderland motifs, complete with heartshaped bowls and little messages instructing the diner to "Eat Me." So whether you're a Lewis Carroll fan or a Disney movie-buff, the Alice restaurant is one way to jump into the pages or movie reel of this timeless classic.

The El Diablo restaurant located in the Timanfaya National Park on the island of Lanzarote is built on top of a volcano. The El Diablo restaurant offers a range of fish and meat, and visitors can watch their meals being cooked on a grill directly over the volcanic heat. If you’re a barbecue lover and the idea of a volcano-grilled meal induces your curiosity, El Diablo is the place to be this summer.

Ninja – NYC, USA Ninja New York is a Japanese ninja themed restaurant in Manhattan. The restaurant is made to look like an ancient castle, including drawbridge, tunnels and caves. The servers are not only dressed in traditional ninja attire but are also trained to perform special “ninja magic tricks.” It isn’t unusual for ninja waiters to suddenly appear at a table and pull out the menu inked on giant scrolls. Some dishes are even written with a “ninja star” next to them indicating they are served with a special magic trick. If you’re the type to be entertained by an (almost) genuine “HIYAH” as you dine, New York Ninja should be your first stop the next time you’re in Manhattan.

Ithaa – Conrad, Maldives Literally meaning “pearl,” the Ithaa Restaurant encased in acrylic is located five meters below the Indian Ocean. The Ithaa Restaurant serves European food with a Maldivian kick and promises to stun diners with a clear and breathtaking view of the underwater world. DESTINATION JEDDAH 65

OG THROUGH EDDAH WITH JMJ!

Jeddah Morning Joggers, otherwise known as JMJ, is a group of active men promoting and encouraging a healthier lifestyle by jogging and exercising together. The group was initiated and created by Ahmad Al Awadi in 2010, when he began to realize that laziness and lack of activity were not the way he wanted to live his life.

With the intention of becoming more active and losing weight, Al Awadi began to wake up early and jog around the block. He then decided to let his neighbors and friends in on his initiative and together they formed Jeddah Morning Joggers. Al Awadi admits that at first it was difficult to wake up as early as 5:30 am, but determination and will kept him going until it became a way of life. The group members’ aims and objectives are to motivate each other, promote fitness and a healthy lifestyle, in addition to the added benefit of socializing and getting to know their community. They enjoy their morning jogs by taking different routes. For example, on one of their mornings they went jogging through Al Balad, where they saw Bait Nasif and Soog Al Bado, and jogged through the old houses and alleyways in the district. JMJ initially began with three to four members in 2010 and gradually increased to their current seven to ten members. These inspiring men gather on Thursday and Friday mornings after Fajur prayer and jog for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. After the jogging sessions, they lay out their maps and stretch for ten minutes.

By welcoming new members to their group, they are encouraging a healthier and more productive lifestyle. Our city is full of walkways and areas to exercise outdoors, but unfortunately they are not being used and taken advantage of as much as they should be. JMJ is one of the groups on a mission to change Jeddahwi’s lifestyles by encouraging people to join them on their fun and productive jogging outings.

The Mobium Elite was inspired by the cat, the planet’s most efficient running machine. We looked at what makes cats so efficient and fast, and how the human foot moves in similar ways.

The three main features that work together to adapt to the foot in motion include the Expansion Pods, Mobium Band and Windlass Chassis. Together these three features are designed to expand with your foot in three directions -longitudinally, laterally and vertically.

We found through extensive research that the marketplace was driven by static running shoes. There were no products on the market that would adapt to the runner’s foot or motion until now. We strongly feel that the PUMA Mobium Elite is a game-changer in the Running category and for performance products alike. It literally introduces a new category of running – Adaptive Running™

Can you talk us through the design process and the important materials that are used on the PUMA Mobium Elite running shoe? The original research into the physiology of the puma cat and other big cats began almost three years ago, yet the idea behind Mobium had been in the works for the last two-and-a-half years. There were several different designs and a lot of prototype trials during the process. The final product – Mobium Elite started to 80 DESTINATION JEDDAH

Why is ‘adaptive running’ technology important? Is it for improved comfort or improved performance? The technology incorporated into PUMA’s Adaptive Running™ footwear adapts with the body in motion, encouraging a more natural and efficient mid-foot strike. Mobium’s cushioning, protection and flexibility encourages a more efficient stride and offers runners a smoother transition.

What’s next on the drawing board from PUMA? Next on the drawing board from Puma is releasing additional styles in upcoming seasons, and the Mobium line will further expand into the Training and Fitness categories.


preparations Preparing for the summer does not only mean losing weight and getting fit. It is also critical to get your skin prepared for the sun exposure! By following Oriana’s tips and directions, you will surely be prepared to have safe fun in the sun! We all agree that the sun not only makes us feel and look good, but Jeddawis look forward to summer here for two fun-filled activities: tanning and swimming. However, one of the most important topics to discuss when it comes to skin care is how to avoid skin damage caused by sun exposure. One of the best ways to get your body ready for tanning is indulging in Moroccan baths. Cleansing your body is highly beneficial because it gets rid of, dead skin cells and detoxifies the skin from germs, bacteria and fungi. Oriana offers their clients different kinds of body scrubs including Luxury Moroccan Bath, Basic Moroccan Bath, Herbal Moroccan Bath and flavored baths such as Brown Sugar and Strawberry Body Scrubs. The same amount of attention you give to your body must be given to your face. Since the facial skin has more oil glands, it requires more care and protection. Oriana offers some great facials that will suit your skin type. You can treat your skin by scheduling appointments for all sorts of facials provided

at Oriana, such as the 24 Karat Gold Facial Treatment, Oxygen Facial, Fresh Caviar Mask, which moisturizes, nourishes, and firms, Collagen Facial, used mainly to hydrate the skin, Vitamin C Facial, which improves the skin tone and restores skin texture and firmness.

W h e t h e r i t ’s y o u r f a c e o r b o d y, d e e p p o r e cleansing, moisturizing and hydrating treatments will leave your skin feeling fresh and restored. Do not take your skin for granted; take good care of it, treat it, and indulge in some fun sun preparations at Oriana!

Healthy Living

HEALTHY TRAVELS By Reham Saeed

Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen can be tough enough when we’re back home. But when we’re either traveling on business or simply on a fun getaway, it can be even more challenging.

Here’s a few tips you can bring in your luggage to squeeze in some healthy routines while you’re away: 1. Start by finding an outdoor area, perhaps a park or footpath. Go for a run or a brisk walk. If it’s a lovely day (or evening), always take advantage of the nice weather to soak up some fresh air. MaidenVoyage.com’s CEO, Carolyn Pearson, confirms that this is also a great way to get to know your new surroundings. TIP: Explore new surroundings on foot or bicycle, a healthier and better way to get acquainted with a place than in the back of a taxi.

2. Another option for those who would rather stay in is to look into at-home workout videos. When staying in a hotel, get into the habit of using on-site gym facilities as often as possible, even if it’s just for 20 minutes. Exercise doesn’t have to be time consuming. But speaking from experience, anything less than 20 minutes won’t do you any good. That is guaranteed. Here’s a rule of thumb, the shorter the workout, the more intense it has to be. And vise versa. Vacation Specialist, Janet DeVito, suggests joining a few workout sessions. “Take a fun Zumba class, play golf or Bocce Ball. There are so many fun ways to keep moving!” How to Stay Motivated PR Specialist, Katie Dally of TripIt and Concur Traveler Services, insists on staying organized during her trips. Inefficient traveling leads to stress, which can lead to the need to relax and feast on unhealthy foods as a way of coping. Stats on TripIt.com show the following most stressful issues for travelers: 1. Exercising at 67%, eating healthy at 66% and airport security at 59%. Keep an itinerary. If need be, have free days set aside to relax. Engage in low-key physical activities if you’re not up for a high intensity workout.

Now here’s what to do in terms of dieting! .“Carry healthy portable snacks like whole almonds or bananas to curb cravings. When ordering from a menu, substitute an appetizer or small plate for the entrée,” Dally adds. . Stop by an Applebee’s here in Riyadh, which actually offers an ‘Under 550 Calories’ menu. Piatto also has a rather exceptional grilled veggie and goat cheese appetizer. . No matter what, always maintain portion control. Restaurants tend to offer overly generous proportions. Pack half to take home with you. . “Making sure to include more healthy options and smaller portions of other foods, will help keep off those extra pounds from traveling,” said Dietitian Amber Ketchum. So there you go, staying healthy while you’re jet setting and city hopping may not be easy but it’s not impossible. Start including these simple tips and so enough, they’ll be part of your traveling habits.

2. Take advantage of TI’s services by signing up online through TripIt.com. According to Dally, using this mobile travel organizer helps keep flight, hotel and other trip details all monitored and kept in one place, which could be particularly useful to business travelers. Once all necessary tasks are efficiently set aside, time put into getting (and staying fit) shouldn’t be a problem.

Instead of surprising your body, acclimate it to the destination temperature two weeks before the trip.

Research your destination.

Replace junk food with ginger as a remedy for nausea and indigestion.

Fight germs by keeping your hands off your face and using saline nasal spray.

SANITIZE!

Nap on the plane, but only for 30 minutes if there’s a considerable time difference.

If you have a sensitive stomach, avoid greasy and spicy meals 24 hours before your flight but have frequent small portions and plenty of water.

Walk the aisles of the plane at regular intervals.

The right kind of sun: Use adequate sunscreen. Being from Saudi doesn’t make you immune to the negative effects of the sun. The amount of sun exposure is what counts.

Try new things but keep it real! Try not to return with extra pounds and remember that safety rules apply outside your country too.

Smart travelers return home healthy, light and energized. Once you’re home see if the new you can sustain your normal routine.
