February may be the shortest month, but we’re not short on quality, entertainment and good humour. We are more than just a classifieds magazine. So use your time wisely this February; spend it with the Gib Easy. It’ll be March before you know it!

Anything you need this month you will find in this edition of the Gib Easy Magazine; and anything you can’t find in this edition, you clearly do not need!

We’ll also be taking a look at the Chinese New Year and what prosperity and wellbeing it may herald for us all (perhaps the prospect of some new electrical generators?).

in UK, Spa and with main jo operators r worldwide

However if, like the electricity board, you find yourself fumbling around in the dark, you need look no further than the Gib Easy’s Power Cut Survival guide; simple ways to get you through the darkest times.




For those of you planning on forking out a shed-load of cash this month on all of the above, take a leaf out of the book of Abramovic and read through our guide to mad spending, Premier League Style.



In addition to our bountiful classified ads you will find a good selection of articles to whet (stimulate, arouse, awaken) your appetite for this month’s hot topics. In our treasure trove you will find published, with great reluctance, the almost compulsory article about Valentine’s Day; with a twist! Cards, hearts, roses, candles, dinners, chocolates and stuffed animals have been confined to the leaky basement alongside chivalry and the shiny suit of armour, and instead we are taking an alternative look at this Hallmark Holiday.


So, tedious metaphors and interminable similes aside, what’s in store for you this February edition of the Gib Easy Magazine?


t e g t ge

2011 is fast becoming a behemoth of a runaway freight train; gathering momentum and powering straight through the days, weeks and months with reckless abandon. It’s like waking up from an almighty Christmas hangover to find that you completely missed January and somehow ended up in February, only to realise that, by uncanny happenstance, February is the shortest month of the year and will no doubt slip by unnoticed if you are unfortunate enough to blink.

2. Learn to get on with your family Research shows that it is possible to get on with your folks when the power’s out. Maybe it’s because you don’t have to look them in the eye when you give them the news that you stepped on the dog’s head when you went on the hunt for the candles. 3. Friends If the family feuds are too much to bear, get some of your mates over. Hide and Seek in the dark is definitely a good laugh and people hitting their shins on coffee tables makes them easy to find. Strip poker in the dark is an entertaining alternative! Adding a semi-charged iPod or iPhone to the mix can provide you with some music. Get some glow sticks out and you’ve got a tiny naked rave!

1. Daylight is your friend. Be prepared! It’ll give you time to hunt down candles, lighter, torches, batteries that work, condoms (so you aren’t faffing around in the dark), pens and paper, rules for card games and of course that elusive deck of cards that you know you have somewhere; basically, anything that doesn’t rely on a socket. Once you have located these essentials create an emergency pack and make sure you place it in an easily accessible place (one which won’t require light to locate). The back of the hall cupboard, behind all your old shoes and your battered suitcase is not a great location.

4. Indulge in a hobby It is a truth universally acknowledged that life gets in the way of hobbies. Everyone loves to paint/draw/write/read/craft but school, uni, work and the internet often take priority. Dig out that sketch book and pencils. Drive your parents crazy with your guitar (acoustic, of course). Dust off that origami set you were given by your Secret Santa three years ago, and get busy making paper swans. It’s time to have fun, Amish-style! 5. Sit outside or go and visit the neighbours It seems that times of great stress and duress bring people together. Knock on a neighbour’s door for a chat and a catch-up. Bitch and moan about the electricity supply and the amount of money that you’re paying, for a service that isn’t being provided. People tend to do weird stuff in unexpected situations, including talking to complete strangers. You may make a new friend or meet a hot stranger with an affinity for celebrating the Chinese New Year in their red underwear!

Chinese New Year celebrations have their origin with end-ofharvest celebrations when people would offer thanks to gods for good harvests and entreaty for a good crop in the following year. Although they varied according to the different calendars used, the customs were formalized under Han Dynasty (206BC-AD 25) rule. These traditions would go on to blossom under the Tang Dynasty. Varied festivals around god worship, sacrifice and celebration held at the end of the winter season and at the beginning of the spring were unified under the Han Dynasty rulers and consolidated, with their adoption of the formal Taichu calendar, to the first day of the first lunar month. During the economically prosperous and politically stable Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907), celebrations around the New Year blossomed. Traditional customs around superstitions and worship gradually became means for people simply to celebrate and enjoy time with their families.

There are five universal elements in Chinese philosophy: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. The elements were associated with five planets in ancient times, Jupiter=Wood, Mars=Fire, Saturn=Earth, Venus=Metal, Mercury=Water. Astrologers read the planets’ positioning to understand what influences would be dominant in a person’s life. The elements are also associated with colours: Green (Wood), Red (Fire), Brown (Earth), White (Metal) and Black (Water). The elements are further associated with the animal zodiac signs. Every twelve-year sequence, the animal takes on one of the elements, until all five have been used.

There are various stories about the origins of the twelve animals in the Chinese Zodiac. Some use the Chinese gods, some use Buddha, but the essence of the story is that a higher being called all animals to a meeting and the first to arrive would be chosen. Before all this, the rat and the cat were good friends. But on the morning of the meeting, the rat, in her excitement, forgot to wake up the cat and through various means of trickery (or cleverness, as this rat interprets) got to the gods first and was thus chosen first. The cat slept in and missed the gathering, and since then, the two have been enemies.

A Brief History

Compatible With:


Chinese New Year fell on 3rd February this year, heralding the Year of the Rabbit, so here is our guide to New Year Prosperity, Chinese style.

The Chinese calendar counts years in cycles of sixty years. Each year has a label consisting of two parts. The first component is the celestial stem being one of the five elements. The second component is the terrestrial branch being one of the twelve animal (zodiac) signs. The equation becomes five multiplied by twelve equalling sixty, or one cycle in the Chinese calendar.

If you’ve been inside any clothes shop in China from December to February, you might be wondering what the strange winter fashion surrounding red underwear is. Most prominent in the men’s section, red underwear is one of the most popular gifts for sweethearts to exchange around Chinese New Year. So, this winter’s fashion it is not. Every winter, red underwear, decorated with gold embroidery usually illustrating the pertinent zodiac animal, go on sale in China’s stores. For those turning 12, 24, 36 etc. (the Chinese Zodiac uses a cycle of 12), termed benming nian, or the meeting of one’s zodiac year, traditional Chinese belief is that it can be an unlucky year. To ward off any dangers that might befall you in your benming nian, it helps to wear red. Red is one of the luckiest colours in Chinese traditions, standing for loyalty, success and happiness. If you’re really traditional, you should wear red every day, all year long. If you’re not a big fan of the colour red in your outer wardrobe, red underwear is an easy way to protect yourself against the hazards of benming nian. Better ask your sweetheart for more than one pair! Maybe for Valentine’s Day!


Chinese New Year to China is like Christmas to us here in Gibraltar. In essence, Chinese New Year is spending time with family, gift giving and, the all important, food-fest.

A lunar year is made up of twelve months with twenty-nine and a half days in each month. Every two and a half months an additional month is added creating a lunar leap year. The beginning of each lunar month is marked by the New Moon on a Western calendar.

Furniture manufacturer Vitra’s grassy headquarters at the meeting point of France, Germany, and Switzerland (just outside Basel) has been an architecture destination since its Frank Gehry–designed museum opened in 1989. There are also buildings by Zaha Hadid and Tadao Ando, but the most remarkable sight may be the new showroom and store designed by the Swiss firm Herzog & de Meuron. The architects have taken the archetypal pitched-roof house, elongated it, and stacked 12 of them up like fireplace logs. Inside, you can follow winding staircases through the dreamlike space and look for home furnishings.

How far is your money going to go?


The Pound’s modest improvement against the majors on 9 February 2011 in the foreign exchange markets was short-lived, as the UK currency sank back towards the pivotal support level at 1.60 versus the U.S Dollar. Sterling also lost ground against the Euro, trading down to a low of 1.1730 by midday in London. The Confederation of British Industry reported that price pressures in the UK will make a UK interest rate rise all the more likely. UK food-price inflation surged to fastest pace in 19-months in January, rising 4.6%, up from 4% the previous month. Consumer prices are currently 3.7% and have remained above the upper limit of 3% for the past ten months in a row. That has led to increased speculation over an interest rate increase by May and the Pound has rallied strongly as a result.


However, it seems markets may have been a bit too quick in pricing in a rate increase and any suggestion to the contrary is weighing on the Pound. The Euro traded higher against the majority of the 16 most actively traded currencies this morning, rising 0.2% against the U.S Dollar, amid speculation that data released today will show that the U.S labour market is improving. The Pound encountered support in the region of the 1.6050 level against the U.S Dollar, but the UK currency continued to trade lower versus the Euro. The UK trade data was weaker-than-expected with a record high goods deficit of £9.2 billion. There was also evidence of the effects of adverse weather conditions, but the underlying performance will continue to give cause for concern. The focus today will inevitably fall on the Bank of England interest rate announcement at midday, with the market pricing in just a 15% probability of a rate increase. Another two former MPC members yesterday called for the BoE to raise borrowing costs from a record low of 0.5% at this meeting and there has certainly been an increase in external pressure for a move. pg 16

Having already established that February 14th is just an excuse for carnal love between a chap and his lovely lady we feel it is important to provide our readers with a cost-free alternative to this Hallmark Holiday. There’s no need to re-mortgage your house in order to buy, gifts and meals to get your lady between the sheets. Our guide to chat up lines can get you equally as good results for

These are the top 5 Conversation Starters: 1. I have heard that woman can only put mascara on if their mouth is open. Is this true? 2. I have been debating this with my friend all evening ... are you supposed to floss before or after you brush? 3. My friend caught his girlfriend kissing another girl. Is that cheating? 4. Are you two best friends? I thought so. You have the same facial expressions! 5. My friend just got married in Las Vegas to a woman he has known for only two weeks. He says he is in love, but I think he is in lust. Do you think it will work?

The Classic One-Liner

The Confuser

Should you find yourself a little lonesome this February and would like to try your luck out there in lady-land why not try one of the following Top Ten Classic One-Liners? They might just work! 1. Hi, I’m doing a survey ...What’s your name? What’s your phone number? Are you free next Saturday? 2. I think there is something wrong with my phone. Could you try calling it for me to see if it rings? 3. Can I borrow your phone please? (Why?) I need to give you my number. 4. You see my friend over there? He wants to know if you think I’m cute? 5. The only thing your eyes haven’t told me is your name. 6. Excuse me, did you just touch my ass? (No!). Damn! 7. If I were to ask you for sex, would your answer be the same as the answer to this question? 8. Shall we talk or continue flirting from a distance? 9. I’d love to see how you look when I’m naked. 10. I have only three months to live.

Alternatively, if you and your friends are just out for a bit of fun and don’t take yourselves too seriously, perhaps the following crackers are more for you. These clever chat up lines are not usually very effective, but they can be very entertaining to use, particularly when you see the look of confusion on your Cherie’s face as she tries to work out just exactly what you said. These chat up lines are most effectively used when delivered to a group at a time and you can try using two or three in quick succession to get a few smiles.


77% of Internet users read blogs according to Universal McCann Two-thirds of Bloggers are male – don’t let Andy Gray know that! More than half are married and more than half are parents – No surprise there, what else is there to do once you’re married and have kids! 60% are 18-44 years of age and 75% have college degrees and 40% have graduate degrees – young bright people! One in four has an annual household income of $100K. Around half of Bloggers are working on at least their second blog – anything else they could be doing? 68% have been blogging for two years or more 86% have been blogging for at least a year 70% of all respondents say that personal satisfaction is a way they measure the success of their blog – what sort of Blog are they writing? 72% say they blog in order to share their expertise. 61% say they blog in order to supplement their income – can understand that. 72% of those who are self-employed and blogging are interested in attracting new clients. 57% say that their future plans include blogging even more (including 74% of 18-24 year olds). 82% of respondents say that they post photos to their blog, making images the most popular form of multimedia – I bet and we’ve all seen that sort of Blog!

For the ‘Singles’ it’s an entirely different ball game. Valentine’s Day serves as a reminder that you’re on your own. Alone. Forlorn. Unloved. What is more, all your ‘Couple’ friends will be busy making you feel sick to your stomach with all their romantic antics. So, if you’re single and all this schmoozing really isn’t for you, or conversely, if you’re a ‘Couple’ and fancy a laugh this year, why not get some ideas by reading on to see our alternative take on Valentine’s Day 2011.

If you feel the one-liners above are a bit too risqué, the chat up lines below may be more your cup of tea. The trick to success here is to start by asking an interesting question rather than using a classic chat up line. The reason these “openers” work better than traditional chat up lines is that if the fairer sex think that a discerning gentleman is trying to chat her up, she will automatically and subconsciously put up barriers, resisting your charms. However, if you open the conversation with a non-threatening and interesting question, she is more likely to engage you in a conversation. You will also stand out from all the other guys out there using the same old tired lines.

More than 133 million blogs have been indexed by Technorati since 2002 – WOW!


For the ‘Couples’, Valentine’s Day is just an expensive precursor to an obligatory bedroom escapade. It’s a day when one feels obliged, even compelled, to lose both mind and money for the sake of a token romantic gesture, which at its heart is nothing short of a selfish ruse to emotionally blackmail someone into sleeping with you.

The Conversation Starter

A totally unrelated issue caused the word “Blog” to come into sharp focus in Gibraltar recently. Llanito World, a serious political commentary, “Blogged” by Robert Vasquez in many ways launched this method of communicating to a much wider audience in Gibraltar (I am certain that Gibraltar already has its fair share of Bloggers so please don’t write in to the Editor). Is it really that new? Some facts for those that wonder will this take off …

These are the top 5 Confusers:


February is always the one time of year that inevitably divides the masses; the ‘Haves’ and the ‘Have-nots’; the ‘Couples’ and the ‘Singles’. Two words bound to make everyone shudder at the thought – Valentine’s Day.

Is Blogging the new e mail revolution?


Why does February 14th feel like Friday 13th?

1. My magical watch says you aren’t wearing any underwear! (I am.) It must be an hour fast. 2. I like Maths. You want to go to my room, add the bed, subtract your clothes, divide your legs and multiply? 3. Do you know the essential difference between sex and conversation? (No.) Let’s go upstairs and talk about it. 4. Do you know what’d look fantastic on you? (No.) Me! 5. You know, if I’m not in bed by 11, I’ll have to go home.

1. Orlando Following massive publicity around the opening of Harry Potter’s Wizarding World this summer, Orlando is set to be extremely popular throughout 2011. The city is well known for its theme parks, and searches for flights to Orlando already rank number one on Skyscanner for travel in 2011. Interest will be further increased by the release of the final Potter film in July 2011 and the favourable USD-GBP exchange rate.

2. Philippines and Indonesia Manila (+46 places) and Bali (+36 places) showed massive growth in traveller interest compared to last year’s rankings. Offering excellent value for money, these vast island nations are attracting budget conscious backpackers as well as higher-end travellers who may have already visited parts of South East Asia and now want to explore more of the region. Searches for flights to Bangkok were also on the rise, with the Thai capital moving up eight places

2. The flower of this month is a violet or sometimes a primrose and the birthstone is amethyst (which represents sincerity). 3. Other than the St. Valentine’s Day (14th) another famous February celebration is Groundhog’s day (2nd). 4. On February 14th, 1928 the infamous Valentine’s Day Massacre took place in Chicago. 5. John Glenn (astronaut and US Senator) was the first man to orbit the earth on February 20th, 1962. 6. Japan successfully launched a satellite into orbit on February 11th, 1970, making it the world’s fourth space power. 7. There is an ancient legend that Augustus Caesar took a day from February and added it to August (the month named after him) in order to make it as long as the month named after Julius Caesar and that is how February ended up with 28 days. 8. As well as being Groundhog’s Day, February 2nd is a religious holiday known as Candlemas Day (the Christian Festival of Lights).

4. Down Under New Zealand will expect to see increased interest due to the World Cup Rugby which will bring more visitors and is likely to have a positive effect on searches for flights to Sydney and other part of Australia too. The filming of the two part Hobbit movie, due for release in 2012, will also help focus interest on ‘Middle Earth’. Christchurch entered the Top 100 most searched for destinations on Skyscanner for 2011, and Sydney moved up 10 places, entering the Top 10.


3. Serbia, Slovenia and the Eastern Bloc Eastern European countries in the Balkans and the Baltics will continue to see a rise in interest as British tourists become more aware that they offer a range of high quality holidays (ski, beach, city break) but at much lower prices than Western Europe.


If you are still considering where you are off to this year for your well deserved break and can’t face another hot August at Catalan Bay with the mother in law here are the destinations selected by industry experts as the top tips for 2011.

1. February is named after the Roman god Februus. The Latin root word februa means purification; and the Romans held their celebration of purification during the time of the month February. The Welsh originally called the second month of the year – “y mis bach” meaning the little month. During the time of Shakespeare it was called ‘Feverell’.

For thirty of January’s thirty-one days all was reasonably quiet in the land of the Premier League Shopping Mall. A lot of browsing and window shopping, a few paltry offers for players currently showing potential, some haggling, some arguing, some namecalling, but nothing to really rock the footballing world. It was eerie. It was quiet. Some would eventually say that it was a little too quiet. Could it be that in an age of austerity football was finally feeling the pinch like the rest of the world? Had the bubble finally burst? Or was this just the quiet before the storm? We were soon to find out that it was most definitely the latter. Monday, January 31st, the storm hit – hard. Battering the shores of Merseyside and quickly spreading to the centre of the nation’s capital. Transfer deadline day was suddenly like Christmas. Loads of blokes (who’d had a month to buy the necessary presents) frantically rushing around at the last minute, buying things for vastly inflated prices at the 24hr garage without knowing if the presents were actually what was needed.

It was all about two teams, both alike in dignity, in fair Britannia, where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal wallets of these two foes a pair of star strikers take their place in the Premier League’s Record Books. The house of Mersey spend a record £35m on a British player (Andy Carroll), whilst the House of Chelsea blow a tidy £50m on Fernando Torres, breaking the domestic transfer record between teams in the League.

£50m… Let’s just put this into perspective. If Abramovic (Chelsea’s billionaire Russian oligarch) had chosen to spend his £50m in an Apple Store he could have happily purchased 70,028 64GB WiFi + 3G iPads and still have had change. With Stamford Bridge’s capacity of 42,500 Abramovic would fall just shy of giving every fan at the next home game 2 iPads each. So what else could £50m get you? Well, if the average can of Coke costs £1 (thank you inflation!) you could purchase 50 million cans of the tooth-rotting nectar. Now, considering that the approximate height of a can is 12cm, you would be able to build a tower of Coke cans that would stretch 6000 km into the sky, or enough to cover a sixth of the Earth’s circumference at the equator. Such are the whims of the superrich. Equally, if you wanted to you could purchase Warter Priory Estate, in North Yorkshire. This property, previously owned by the Marquess of Normanby, is valued at a mere £48m (leaving you £2m in change to stock the wine cellar) and boasts 11,000 acres (44,515,420 m2 – the size of 6,326 football pitches); Or, you could get yourself a fleet of 383 fully loaded Bentley Continental GTs; Or, if that’s not your cup of hand-picked Earl Grey, you could treat yourself to 3 Cessna Citation X private jets, the fastest operative civilian jet in the world, with a top speed of Mach 0.92, or 977 km/h (just under the speed of sound – 1,236 km/h), powered by two Rolls-Royce turbofan engines; Or, you could buy yourself one 26 year old Spanish striker. Depends what you’re into really!
