As always, we have been on hand to snap everything going on, turn to page 88 and see if you made the cut! With achievements including being named as one of the 100 most influential people in the world in TIME magazine and featuring in Forbes 30 Under 30 list, Margot Robbie is one of the biggest names in Hollywood today. With Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations under her belt, the starlet is much more than a pretty face and returns this month in her latest Harley Quinn role in Birds of Prey.

Finally, we couldn’t finish without mentioning the tragic loss of TV presenter, Caroline Flack who took her own life last month. The former Love Island presenter had talent, looks, success and love. Or so it appeared. The shadow of her upcoming trial for assault on her boyfriend, Lewis Burton loomed and she felt that the whole world and future was swept from under her feet. Her death has resonated with men and women across the world and brought the subject of mental health issues and so-called online trolls to light. While we can all get swept up by the swirl of our busy lives, we often forget how important it is to just be kind. So, in the words of Caroline, if you can be anything, be kind.

orn on July 2nd 1990 Margot Elise Robbie was raised by her single mother, alongside her three siblings in Gold Coast hinterland. To make ends meet Margot worked three part time jobs alongside her schooling before moving to Melbourne at the age of 17 to begin acting professionally, a move that would end up being the start of an epic career.

Before making her name in Hollywood, Margot played Donna Freedman in the Australian TV soap opera, Neighbours; a fan favourite, she was nominated for multiple awards before her departure in 2010 to star in Pan Am alongside Christina Ricci. Sadly, the show only lasted one series and was cancelled despite positive reviews. Next Robbie joined the cast of Richard Curtis’ romantic comedy, About Time, alongside Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams and Bill Nighy. But it was her role as Naomi, Leonardo DiCaprio’s wife in Martin Scorsese’s fact based epic financial tale, The Wolf of Wall Street that caught the world’s attention and put Margot on the map. The Big Short, Focus with Will Smith and sci-fi drama Z for Zachariah followed, the latter received exceptional praise with Robbie being described as ‘one of the very best actresses in her age range today.’ At the end of the year Margot re-teamed with Smith for Suicide Squad where she played fan favourite Harley Quinn, the psycho psychiatrist who is a muse to Jared Leto’s Joker, a role she reprised this year in Birds of Prey and The Suicide Squad. In 2014 Margot met her husband British assistant director Tom Ackerley on set, two years later their married in a private

ceremony in Byron Bay, New South Wales. Talking of their relationship Margot explained, “I was the ultimate single gal. The idea of relationships made me want to vomit. And then this crept up on me. We were friends for so long. I was always in love with him but I thought, ‘Oh, he would never love me back. Don’t make it weird, Margot. Don’t be stupid and tell him that you like him.’ And then it happened, and I was like, ‘Of course we’re together. This makes so much sense, the way nothing has ever made sense before.’” In 2016 Robbie starred as Jane in The Legend of Tarzan with Alexander Skarsgard and the following year she played the wife of Winnie the Pooh author A.A. Milne in the historical drama, Goodbye Christopher Robin. She next portrayed the American figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya. The Boston Globe described Robbie as, ‘taller, bigger than the tiny, fierce Harding, but she gets the athlete’s forward drive, and the anger that seemed to fuel the dynamo, and when life hands Tonya lemons, Robbie sets her jaw and bears down.” For her portrayal of the Olympian Margot was nominated for the Golden Globe and the Academy Award for Best Actress. Subsequently Time magazine named her as one of the 100 most influential people in the world and Forbes featured her on its 30 Under 30 list. Mary Queen of Scots alongside Saoirse Ronan, thriller Terminal and live-action film Peter Rabbit, an adaptation of the Beatrix Potter book series followed. Her next high-profile project found her portraying actress Sharon Tate, a real-life victim of the notorious Charles Manson orchestrated murders

of 1969, alongside DiCaprio and Brad Pitt in Quentin Tarantino’s 2019 film Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood. In the same year Margot took on a more prominent role in Bombshell, a retelling of the sexual harassment allegations that rocked Fox News under the oversight of former CEO Roger Ailes. For her role as fictional character Kayla Pospisil, Margot received both Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations. In 2019 Forbes ranked Margot as the eighth highest-paid actress in the world, one of just three Australian superstars to make the list, with an annual income of 23.5 million dollars and The Hollywood Reporter listed her among the 100 most powerful people in entertainment. Margot began the decade producing the drama thriller film, Promising Young Woman starring Carey Mulligan before the release of Birds of Prey in 2020, a project Robbie had been working on since 2015 when she developed the idea of a Harley Quinn film. Later this year Robbie will reprise her role in The Suicide Squad and as Flopsy Rabbit in Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway. She has committed to star in an adaptation of Matt Ruff’s thriller novel Bad Monkeys to portray Maid Marian in the upcoming biopic as well as thriller Ruin, a live action Barbie film co-written and directed by Greta Gerwig and David O. Russel’s unnamed drama alongside Christian Bale. Much more than a pretty face we are sure this glamorous starlet will continue to impress audiences everywhere with her big-screen performances for years to come.

H

ayden Panettiere’s boyfriend, Brian Hickerson, allegedly struck her with a closed fist on the right side of her face during an argument on Valentine’s Day. Brian was booked for domestic battery and interfering with a police officer during the arrest in Wyoming. This isn’t the first time this has happened as Brian was arrested for domestic violence following a drunken argument with the actress in 2019. The TV star, who has a daughter Kaya, who lives in the Ukraine with her ex fiancé Wladimir Klitschko, is a cause for concern for her friends and family who feel Brian is isolating her. A close source shared that they fear she is ‘in danger with Brian, add impairment issues from drinking too much and it will have a tragic outcome if she continues the relationship.’

The former One Direction singer was on a night out in Hampstead in London when he was confronted by a man who threatened him. The robber pulled out a knife and demanded cash. Harry acted quickly handing over the cash and luckily escaped unharmed. A source shared, “He actually played it pretty cool, quickly giving the assailant cash, keeping himself and the guy calm and getting the situation over with. Understandably thought it left him very shaken up afterwards.” Stay safe Harry!

BE KIND

L

ast month the news broke that TV presenter, Caroline Flack, was found dead in her London home. It has since been revealed the cause of death was suicide by hanging. She was 40 years old. Her family released a statement to the UK’s Press Association stating, “We can confirm that our Caroline passed away today on the 15th of February. We would ask that the press respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time.”

It is believed Flack took her own life shortly after her friend Lou Teasdale, who had stayed with her on the Friday night, left to go to the shops, after Caroline persuaded her she was ok. Her body was discovered by her father, Ian, who Lou called when she couldn’t gain access to the flat.

FOLLOWING HER DEATH CAROLINE’S FAMILY PUBLISHED A STATEMENT FROM THE LOVE ISLAND STAR, WHICH SHE HAD BEEN ADVISED NOT TO POST DUE TO BEING ON TRIAL FOR ASSAULTING HER BOYFRIEND, LEWIS BURTON. Flack wrote, ‘For a lot of people, being arrested for common assault is an extreme way to have some sort of spiritual awakening but for me it’s become the normal. ‘I’ve been pressing the snooze button on many stresses in my life – for my whole life. I’ve accepted shame and toxic opinions on my life for over 10 years and yet told myself it’s all part of my job. No complaining. ‘The problem with brushing things under the carpet is …. they are still there and one day someone is going to lift that carpet up and all you are going to feel is shame and embarrassment. ‘On December the 12th 2019 I was arrested for common assault on my boyfriend … Within 24 hours my whole world and

future was swept from under my feet and all the walls that I had taken so long to build around me, collapsed. I am suddenly on a different kind of stage and everyone is watching it happen. ‘I have always taken responsibility for what happened that night. Even on the night. But the truth is …. It was an accident. ‘I’ve been having some sort of emotional breakdown for a very long time. But I am NOT a domestic abuser. We had an argument and an accident happened. An accident. The blood that someone SOLD to a newspaper was MY blood and that was something very sad and very personal. ‘The reason I am talking today is because my family can’t take anymore. I’ve lost my job. My home. My ability to speak. And the truth has been taken out of my hands and used as entertainment. ‘I can’t spend every day hidden away being told not to say or speak to anyone. I’m so sorry to my family for what I have brought upon them

and for what my friends have had to go through. ‘I’m not thinking about ‘how I’m going to get my career back. I’m thinking about how I’m going to get mine and my family’s life back. I can’t say anymore than that.’ Rest in peace Caroline and remember, in a world where you can be anything,

The Tech Scene

By Ian Kuah

W

e live in a consumer society where people have come to expect fast and efficient service and gadgets with lots of features that work for a time before being replaced by the next best thing. This throwaway mentality means the junk pile created by old electronics is only growing, bolstered by cheaply made products designed with built-in obsolescence to keep the factories going. As many people have also come to realise, this is a very wasteful system that is certainly not good for the planet. However, things were not always this way, and before the heyday of the transistor in the 1960s audio amplifiers used vacuum tubes or valves as they are also known, as their motive force.

This is bespoke audio at its finest and ownership of a TMS valve amplifier thus comes with a great back-story that will be a talking point when friends visit.

26

Unlike modern solid-state circuit boards, which are useless once the components are ‘fried’ the valves in a traditional amplifier can simply be changed when they wear out or fail. Other parts can also be replaced ad infinitum, which means you are investing in an amplifier for life, or until you upgrade to a better or more powerful one. As we noted above, transistors began to take over in the 1960s. They are certainly cheaper to make, but the early ones sounded pretty awful. While valve amplifiers are characterised by their smooth and musical sounds, early


The Tech Scene

transistor units sounded bright and clinical by comparison, and were tiring to listen to over time. The irony of course is that transistor units always measure better on test instruments, and their proponents used this presumed superior accuracy as a marketing tool. While valve amplifiers measure comparatively worse in terms of total harmonic distortion and some other parameters they create a more realistic musical image with a greater sense of three dimensional air and space along with sweeter treble. What you have to remember though is that our aim is to listen to music, not watch square waves being reproduced perfectly on an oscilloscope!

manufacturing company. A former PhD bio-chemist by trade, who worked for multi-national companies in the medical-pharmaceutical industry before retiring to Marbella in 2017, Stephen used to build valve-powered guitar amplifiers for friends during his school days many moons ago.

It was his passion for music and good sound quality that led Stephen Robinson to create his own amplifier

A prospective client is invited to visit Stephen at home and listen to a wide variety of music from classical to rock, that shows off the musicality of the amplifier. If the owner so wishes Stephen can even attach a plaque engraved with the customers name to underline the individual commission. This is bespoke audio at its finest and ownership of a TMS valve amplifier thus comes with a great back-story that will be a talking point when friends visit. Like valve amplifiers, record players never went away, and recent years have witnessed a significant vinyl revival all over the world, even amongst young people who were not yet born when the CD made its debut in the early ‘80s. In fact buyers today have a far greater choice of record players from 100 euros to 150,000 euros than was ever on offer back in the 1980s.

On the other hand transistor amplifiers do generally have a superior damping factor and can thus control deep bass frequencies better. However, over the years improvements in the design of valve amplifiers have mitigated this to a large extent and current valve amplifiers matched to the right speakers can deliver fast, dynamic and breathtakingly realistic insights into recorded music that will have you captivated for hours. While transistor or solid-state electronics took over the industry, the valve amplifier never went away. Rather, its more euphonically pleasing music reproduction qualities saw it become the doyen of enthusiasts, whose passion drove the continuous development of separate high-end pre- and power amplifiers as well as the integrated units that went before.

valve-powered audio amplifiers with outputs ranging from 60W to 100W. Naming his company Time Machine Sounds (TMS) because it uses traditional technologies brought upto-date, Stephen offers some unique propositions to his clients. Usually hi-fi companies sell products through a dealer network and you

A good vinyl LP record has the potential to sound better than CD, and when you listen to it through a TMS amplifier you suddenly realise that the sound quality of digital recordings and transistors was not necessarily the real progress it was made out to be at the time. The transistor just made things cheaper and faster to manufacture, and the industry’s subsequent fast changing music formats have only helped to bolster the piles of electronic junk in landfill sites.

ou’ve probably heard the word algorithm mentioned and you may have a vague sense that an algorithm’s something “that, errr… does something” on your computer or smartphone. You’d also be forgiven if you’d never heard of one or had no idea what it did. Despite the fact they basically facilitate operation of the modern world for us, algorithms are the relatively unsung mathematical heroes whose often genius-level design and implementation allow the average person not to give a second thought to how extraordinary it is we can click on a picture of food, clothing or furniture on a screen and have that exact item delivered to our door (or shoved in a bush if we’re out) within 24 hours. Big companies don’t want us thinking about the complexities that go into the provision of our goods and services - it makes it all too overwhelming and unsexy. They know we just want stuff we like, we want it to work right and we want it NOW, and without the help of algorithms, that simply wouldn’t be possible. An algorithm is a process or set of rules designed to be followed in calculations or other problem-solving operations. Algorithms convert input data to output data. They need not be super complex, though they frequently are. Technically, even a dinner recipe or instructions for laundering clothes through a washing machine are examples of algorithms; properly defined step by step procedures which process inputs - food ingredients or dirty clothes and detergent - into outputs - a tasty lasagna, or clean but annoyingly creased up t-shirts and inexplicably missing socks….

ALGORITHMS CONVERT INPUT DATA TO OUTPUT DATA. THEY NEED NOT BE SUPER COMPLEX, THOUGH THEY FREQUENTLY ARE. One of the oldest algorithms in use is that of the ancient Greek mathematician Euclid who was rocking the whole one-name vibe some 300 years before Jesus made it cool. Euclid’s algorithm

28

was an efficient procedural method for calculating the greatest common divisor of two numbers, that is the largest number which divides exactly into both without leaving a remainder. To this day, computations using Euclid’s Algorithm constitute part of the cryptographic protocols which secure internet connections… so you can thank him next time you stay in a hotel and can’t get porn to work over the WIFI.

THEY KNOW WE JUST WANT STUFF WE LIKE, WE WANT IT TO WORK RIGHT AND WE WANT IT NOW, AND WITHOUT THE HELP OF ALGORITHMS, THAT SIMPLY WOULDN’T BE POSSIBLE. Modern computing permits a level of data crunching we couldn’t dream of achieving manually. Via myriad algorithms embedded in code, we outsource to super fast processors the calculations which govern so many aspects of our lives. The best algorithms are those which tap into the underlying mathematical structures hiding within a problem and subsequently offer efficient solutions in the quickest manner. Computers are effectively machines performing repetitive tasks at audacious speeds but through the complex implementation and augmentation of algorithms, they can produce results which practically suggest intelligence, despite remaining different combinations of 1’s and 0’s. When you point your smartphone camera at a friend, the little coloured box which follows their head about is the instantly-realised result of algorithms which rapidly scan clusters of pixels for blocks of contrast we perceive as the familiar features of a face. The result is your friend’s mug is in focus as opposed to the tree behind them….. all ready for the next algorithm to spring into action as Facebook kindly offers to tag them for you. One of the most influential algorithms of modern times is PageRank (PR). Created at Stanford University in 1996 by Larry page and Sergey Brin, the first, defining algorithm used by Google remains at the heart of their $280 billion dollar company (If you don’t know who Google are, ask Jeeves…. then kill yourself).

PageRank, a link-analysis algorithm, assigns “importance” to web pages by counting the number and quality of links to other pages. The underlying assumption is that more important websites will receive more links from other important websites, consequently appearing higher on Google search results. Whilst some might argue this creates a self-perpetuating popularity clique and subsequent consumer herd mentality, the algorithm is incredibly reactive, constantly shifting with the (perceived) fortunes of every single online page. As such, it’s proven wildly successful in giving us the type of highly relevant results we at least think we’re after when we venture online. The proof is in the highly successful pudding, with some 3.5 billion Google searches committed every day. Dating apps apply matching formulas to link you with compatible partners. Research suggests data and algorithms do a better job of creating stable matches then Sambuca and a chat up line. In 2012, economists Lloyd Shapley and Alvin Roth won the Nobel Prize for their “theory of stable allocations and the practice of market design”, creating matching algorithms now implemented highly effectively to stably match donor organs with patients, college applicants with schools, and in the example which convinced the Nobel board, even husbands with wives. Giants like Netflix use algorithms to analyse your viewing habits and refine the content they suggest for you. Spotify, the world’s most popular music streaming app implements powerful algorithms and machine learning to tailor users’ interfaces and curate playlists – Users spend approx half their time on the app listening to suggested content. Spotify don’t just proffer songs listened to by other users with similar tastes, their tech scours online text to find artists and content mentioned alongside the artists you follow. They even use algorithms to analyse the composition of the music you love so they know what makes you tick... next up, music written by Spotify just for you... Algorithms are the very framework underpinning our modern existence. So often, we only notice them when they seem to go awry – that ad your mum keeps seeing for erectile dysfunction or the plastic toilet-brush going for a

Are we still in control or blindly trusting these algorithmically-emboldened machines not to go all Skynet on us to balance the books - for anyone too young to remember Terminator 2, just replace the word Skynet with Thanos and you’ll get the gist. Of course, like anything, the onus is on us humans to apply our sciences responsibly lest they evolve to bite us in the arse....

ALGORITHMS ARE THE VERY FRAMEWORK UNDERPINNING OUR MODERN EXISTENCE.

Nobody wants nuclear apocalypse and nobody wants to pay a grand for a bog brush.

PARENTING

To School or Not To School is that even a question?

Since writing my last piece on the concept of ‘unschooling’, and the possibility it might be an interesting alternative to traditional schooling, I have been bombarded with questions about how it works. How can children educate themselves? How will they fit into the system later in life? How do they socialise? Victoria Wood is a freelance writer and mother of three based in the south of Spain. Life for her is primarily based around a healthy diet, lifestyle and educating herself and those around her how to live well. Victoria has been a writer for the past twenty years and her work includes an environmental column, journalistic editorials and social media management. She is also a proofreader and editor, and is currently working on her first novel.

I have researched further into the topic and listened to many a podcast from the viewpoint of people who were “unschooled”, or who put this into practice as parents, and their experience of it. The parents’ stance came from one that begins when a child is in infancy and naturally begins their learning journey. They learn to speak, to eat, to walk, to interact, and then begin to show interest in particular things they come into contact with. If a child shows that they have an interest in trains for example, what as parents would we automatically do? We naturally embrace that interest and further it by perhaps taking them on a real train, taking them to see trains, looking at books about trains, perhaps buying a toy train, or looking online at information on them. We allow them to nurture their personal learning patterns by way of their own interests and, as parents, help to feed their enthusiasm.

Then all of a sudden they reach “school age”, whereby they immediately must sit still, obey orders, listen and do as they are told, and learn about the same things as everyone else in the class. Discipline is important I hear you say…well is it possible that a child who disciplines themselves is far more learned on that subject than one who is forced to do as they don’t please?

Discipline is important I hear you say… well is it possible that a child who disciplines themselves is far more learned on that subject than one who is forced to do as they don’t please?

Some children thrive in a schooling environment, but, as it stands, the percentage of those who do not is far higher. So there is undoubtedly a flaw in the system. Those who stop being interested in learning or who become despondent or lackadaisical are labelled, and sometimes as far as diagnosed, with a learning difficulty or disability. Did they suffer this same detriment when they were toddlers learning about birds or airplanes in the sky? Did they switch off and look utterly bored when a lion or

tiger came on TV? Or doing a puzzle? Or answering questions about their favourite toys? It is lost to schooling that children are individual and are fully capable of learning by themselves, the opposite is so heavily ingrained in our society and culture that even the most alternative of us worry that it couldn’t possibly be right to not put a child in school. My personal experience of school was a good one, I loved it, I loved homework wanted more of it, I thrived at exam time, I loved learning and found it the most natural and easy thing in the world. But, I was one of the very few. None of my friends felt the same way, so much so that I disguised my love for school for fear of being the odd one out. There is such a small ratio of people that function effectively within the current system, and the fact that I was one of them has made it very difficult for me to look outside of the proverbial box and accept that the system may not be right for my own children. I have one, like me who would thrive in it, and two that absolutely would not. I’m not trying to change people’s minds about how to educate their kids, I am just pointing out that there are alternatives, and those options may well be the ones that suit your children.

Nothing beats passion when it comes to drive, inspiration, and motivation.

spend the majority of their time with and who their major influences are. They also still have time to explore life the way they want to. The other day I went outside to find my ten-year old son using a magnifying glass to carefully burn faces on to almonds! My other son in the meantime had looked up a parkour move called the ‘butterfly twist’ and was outside trying to master it himself. It just shows that they are uniquely inquisitive and having time and space to discover the world as they see it is a valuable lesson in itself. Unschooling in its essence is that in a nutshell (hopefully not one burnt by my son); the idea that children will continuously investigate the world through their own eyes and find

their own path through life. How will they ever get a job? I think if someone has spent the better part of their life studying botany and has grown their own vegetables, plants, knows about plant rotation, can tell you the structure of plants and all their functions - he or she would be more than qualified to attain a job within this field (excuse the pun). If a child develops a passion for the creative arts, this is a job in itself. They can decide what they wish to do in their own way and time, and then study to achieve a qualification if necessary. Their choices are not limited to which A levels or IB subjects they can take, they can create their own subjects and persistently find out more about that which they are passionate. Nothing beats passion when it comes to drive, inspiration, and motivation.

Unschooling in its essence is that in a nutshell... the idea that children will continuously investigate the world through their own eyes and find their own path through life.

As I mentioned last month, my children are online schooling, which is still following a government-run curriculum but they manage their own timetable, upload their own homework, and are accountable for their own attendance. Accountability is something that isn’t, and can’t be, taught in schools. I am also intent on educating them about nutrition, natural health, environmental issues and actively having a positive impact on the planet, learning a musical instrument, learning languages, travelling, sports (those that aren’t necessarily included within schools, such as surfing, martial arts, swimming, etc.), and more however I am not going to force any of the above on them, they need to try things out and let me know what they want to do, more importantly what they enjoy doing. The very big positive part of online schooling is that they have time to be able to fit in so many more extracurricular activities. The only real part of school that they lack is the social aspect - the part where you interact with everyone else each day. Though I’m pretty content that while they are still young we get to choose who they

48 HOURS

IN MARBELLA

HEN SPECIAL Just 48 hours in Marbella and up to your eyeballs in recommendations? Instead of trying to remember that restaurant your mate’s cousin went to in 2007 why not have a quick read through our up-to-date picks and tips on how to make the most of your Marbs trip! Our two-day itinerary has been created based on advice from the locals, past customers and our own MMW staff experiences – squeezing together all of the most loved Marbella venues all into one weekend. Keep reading to find out more about all of our favourite things to do in Marbella. DAY 1: MORNING

Check in and Explore. If your accommodation is in central Puerto Banus ditch your luggage and have a walk along the marina as you probably won’t remember being there in the morning! Grab some brunch at Jack’s Smokehouse and ask to be seated upstairs to take in those incredible sea views.

Tip #1

PRE BOOK YOUR AIRPORT TRANSFERS Before we begin let’s get the boring bits out of the way. When you have just 48 hours to experience Marbella, prearranged airport transfers are essential! Shared transfers can sometimes take hours, especially in peak season when the transfer is likely to have a number of different groups to drop off along the coast! With Marbella being one of the last stops save yourself the anxiety of the ‘that better not be our hotel or i’ll cry’ game and get dropped directly to your door.

36

The MMW team can save you even more time on your transfers as all of our private hire Mercedes Minibuses take the toll route rather than the standard taxi route – taking up to 20 minutes off your transfer time each way!


CENTRIC ACOMODATION If you only have 48 hours try to pick accommodation as close to Puerto Banus as possible. This will save you time and taxis! If you can pay for early check in it’s totally worth it to get rid of your bags and to give you somewhere to freshen up as soon as you arrive.

Tip #2 Tip #3 TAKE THE MORNING OFF Daytime events in Marbella don’t tend to get busy until 1pm onwards.

DAY 1: AFTERNOON

Sea’s The Day

You’ve had a super early morning and you’re more than likely planning a late night.

With this in mind if you arrive in Marbella before midday you can still make the most of a beach club day or pool party if you want to cram as much in as possible. While the daytime events are ridiculously popular in Marbella the nightlife is also amazing which is why we recommend not going in too hard on day one and saving yourself for the night!

We recommend taking advantage of that welldeserved holiday chill time and topping up your vitamin sea on one of our private yachts! Looking for something a little livelier? Add on drinks packages, Bellini bars, unlimited beers, cheeky butlers, bikini waitresses and more! DAY 1: EVENING

Drink Happy Thoughts Priority number one – food and always food. Marbella has so many great restaurants it can be overwhelming making that all important decision on where to eat. We personally LOVE La Sala, and after a chilled (or not so chilled) afternoon it’s the perfect pick for food and pre drinks. After La Sala head to Pangea for breath-taking views of the marina and a great open air atmosphere and if you’re still standing make your way to Mirage until the sun comes up!

Tip #4

EAT LATE Aim to eat for around 8.30 – 9pm as the pre bars tend to start getting busy from 10.30pm onwards and the clubs don’t close until 7am on weekends!

37


DAY 2: MORNING & AFTERNOON

Beach Please!

So here we hit the ultimate Marbella dilemma. Kisstory at SISU Vs Candypants at Plaza Beach We’re afraid this one is on you guys as we are OBSESSED with both. The only way to slightly differentiate between the 2 is that SISU has a pool and Plaza Beach doesn’t and Plaza is a bigger venue – SISU is more crammed in. Either way you’re going to have the best day of your life.

Tip #5

RENT A SUNBED Get a bed or you will literally be stood up aaaaall day which is not ideal. Pre booking these venues is essential & many weekends sell out months in advance.

DAY 2: EVENING

The Last Few Hours

Happy Hour

If you have a super early flight be sure to pre book transfers and make sure the most organised / least intoxicated member of the group has their alarm set to round up the troops!

So, congrats if you’ve made it home before 7pm with both shoes. You now have 2 options – eat in or out. Either book in the MMW catering team to come to you to create the most mouthwatering mobile BBQ you have ever seen or pre book a set menu with bottomless beer and wine to keep the momentum going for another big night ahead. (Yes, you still have a million more bars to visit!)

Got a little bit of spare time before your transfer? Why not pre book the La Sala bottomless brunch and see yourselves off in style!

Next, we recommend the chilled out cocktail bar that gives us life – Astral!

Pre booked a late check out? Spend your last few hours topping up that tan by the pool and let the MMW catering team prepare the perfect hangover cure with your choice between the ultimate English breakfast or our afternoon tea inspired brunch!

You can’t pre book which is super annoying for large groups but the fresh fruit cocktails are definitely worth the obscene queue. (Eat early and get there before 10 to avoid this). You also get free popcorn with your drinks AND the bar is right at the start of the nightlife strip so no messing around with taxis. After Astral we recommend checking out Newscafe, Babilonia and Linekers in that order.

Then if you’re still standing (seriously how are you still standing though!?) we recommend heading over to TIBU! So, there you have our ultimate guide to 48 Hours in Marbella. Just stopped by for a bit of advice? We look forward to seeing you this summer! Need help booking your ultimate Marbella itinerary or have some questions we didn’t cover in this article?

Even if supply chains were able to restart in China, companies don’t have enough capital to cover wages, or have delayed or stopped paying workers, suggesting that the Covid-19 outbreak has left businesses on the brink of disaster. Worse, workers can’t freely move around the country, and many are subjected to travel restrictions and quarantines, which has forced a massive labour shortage.

DO SOMETHING NEW OR DIFFERENT!

D

oing something out of the ordinary frees up energy and helps us get into a new, more inspired and empowered flow and then from there on, new things can unfold, things that can make our life richer and more exiting. So, give it a chance; do something new today! See what happens, be open to being delighted and surprised and see where your openness to life takes you. You can also make a decision today on something that is of importance to you, and that decision can turn out to be among the most important and empowering things you have ever done for yourself. It could be that thing you have been thinking about for the longest time. Maybe it’s time to do something and take action on it? This article could be the sign you’ve been waiting for or asked for. Whatever you can do today that is out of the ordinary and that somehow can lead to an enhancement of your life or life experience, go for it with the expectation of being massively rewarded for your efforts as you step outside of your comfort zone and outside of your norm.

START A NEW JOURNEY OR DIRECTION TODAY AND SEE HOW LIFE OPENS UP FOR YOU! Courageously move the boundaries of your own comfort zone to the maximum, stretch wider than ever before, and take a chance on something. Ignore the voice in your head that tells you that you can’t! Intend to boldly follow your intuition and true desires that comes from your soul and trust that as you do that, great things will begin to unfold for you. Follow your inner guidance, don’t wait and say you’ll do it tomorrow or some other time later, because the reality of life is that we only have this one shot and our time here is limited. No one knows what tomorrow brings and life is too short to be held back by fear or other self-imposed restrictions. It’s important to really let that sink in; that we only have this One Life, so if there’s something that is calling you today, then go ahead and do it. Have you been procrastinating on something? Then just do it today. Just do it.

FEEL-GOOD FACTOR

Have you been wanting to ask someone out but haven’t had the courage to do so yet? Then ask him/her today. What about that trip to Italy you have been dreaming of for ages now? Maybe it’s time to book the flight today and just go for it? Take the necessary step today that helps you live your life as full as possible. Remember this truth: One Life. This is it, so I urge you to explore the opportunity of something new and exciting, starting today.

YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE AND EVERYTHING TO GAIN If you don’t know what that new thing is or could be, then a simple question to ask yourself is that if you could have one wish come true in the near future, what would that wish be? Pay attention to what comes up and don’t disregard anything even if it seems unattainable or impossible.

You might already know what it is, but in any case, I invite you to see this article as a sign or nudge from the universe telling you that life is simply waiting for your response and for you to say yes. So today, ask yourself these questions and dare to take some kind of action towards what comes up that demonstrates your willingness to grow and expand beyond what has been before: “What is the newest, unusual, different or completely daring and out of character (in the most positive way) thing you can do today?” What would be FUN? Life always rewards a childlike lightheartedness and the willingness to play and be playful! “What have I been wanting to do (maybe for a very long time) but not done yet?” It’s most probably something that you feel a bit intimidated, scared or uncomfortable doing, but you know that when it comes down to it, it will ultimately lead you to a greater level of happiness and confidence in your life, no matter what the outcome or result is of you actually doing it.

Stay open and receptive and write the things down that come to mind. Maybe your wish has to do with love, or relationships, or a career change, or something to do with health, whatever it is, listen to it and do something today towards that wish, or goal, and I promise you that things will begin to shift for you and take you in the direction of the new path or direction that you envision for yourself.

SOMETHING NEW WILL BEGIN TO OPEN UP FOR YOU, AND YOU’D BE AMAZED OF HOW QUICKLY THINGS CAN HAPPEN WHEN YOU ALIGN WITH THAT SOMETHING THAT IS CALLING YOU!

Dare to do it today so that you can live with no regrets – Make the most of the one and only opportunity you have of being You and the life that you have been given.

Life will meet you in your willingness to receive all the goodness it has in store for you if you just dare to say ‘Yes’! 45

I never would have guessed there would come a day when I could cook up a veggie burger and it would “bleed” like beef. I also never would have predicted that you could roll through the drive through at KFC and order a bucket of vegan fried “chicken” or have a vegan Whopper at Burger King so authentic that it would fool the most carnivorous omnivores. But, alas, here we are! The vegan “meat” market has absolutely exploded. No matter where you live, chances are that you can probably find some sort of veggie-based mock meat product in a supermarket or restaurant near where you live. And if you live in a more populated area, you can find everything from vegan bacon and smoked vegan cheese wheels to vegan goats cheese and vegan tuna fish. On a global scale, you can travel to pretty much any city across the world and find some form of plant-based alternative meat. Arguably, the two most popular vegan meat brands are currently Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods. They have completely taken the meat industry by storm by offering their plant products in restaurants and supermarkets nationwide. Aldi, El Corte Ingles and even local restaurant group La Sala offer Beyond Meat products now. In many cases, the food chains’ sales have spiked as a result of incorporating vegan options into their menus.

But, the issue with the rise in popularity of faux meat products is that there is now a race to develop as many as possible in order to capitalize on the global diet shift. This can lead to a lack of much thought and even what can seem to be an intentional disregard of the quality of ingredients going into these products. While the plant version of whatever product you are eating is likely healthier than the animal meat version, it is crucial to remember that “healthier” is not the same thing as “healthy.” Many veggie burgers and meat alternative products on the market are highly processed, packed with sodium and contain natural flavours (which can pretty much mean anything), saturated fats and refined oils. If we get down to the nitty gritty of the most commonly used plant-based meat ingredients, here are the ones that raise concern.

Just because a food is , vegan doesn t , mean it s healthy


HELPING YOU LOOK YOUR BEST


FEEL-GOOD FACTOR

Soy Protein

Pea Protein

This is the base for most of the products produced by brands like Impossible Foods, Gardein and Boca.

This is the foundation of burgers developed by popular brands like Beyond Meat and Dr. Praeger’s.

THE GOOD: The upside of soy-based products is that they are typically high in iron. For example, the Impossible Burger offers 25% of the Recommended Daily Amount (or RDA) of iron, which is more than the average beef burger. Boca and Gardein burgers rank lower in iron than the Impossible Burger, but they still contain a significant amount of the critical nutrient, coming in at 10% of the RDA for iron.

THE GOOD: The positive aspect about pea protein is that the majority of burgers that include it as their base are nonGMO. While pea protein does not provide the full set of benefits that peas in their natural state offer, it is still a great source of iron, contains all 9 essential amino acids, and it is one of the most easily digestible forms of protein available. This is the main reasons why I suggest the Beyond Meat burger over the Impossible Burger.

THE BAD: Unless noted otherwise, most companies use GMO soy, which is not good for our bodies or brains. The Impossible Burger uses GMO soy and it recently tested 11 times higher than Beyond Meat for glyphosate (the primary active ingredient in Round Up Weed Killer – yikes!). Be sure to always look for the Certified NonGMO label whenever you purchase soy products. Many soy-based products are loaded with other unnecessary additives as well.

Seitan

THE BAD: Some pea protein-based burgers contain refined oils. For example, the Beyond Burger contains refined coconut oil and canola oil. Many vegan meat products that contain pea protein also contain “natural flavors,” which you already know I am not a fan of.

Grain

(AKA Vital Wheat Gluten) Vital Wheat Gluten is the main ingredient in some of the burgers developed by brands like Sweet Earth and Field Roast. THE GOOD: Some products that include seitan as the base, such as Sweet Earth’s burger, contain almost entirely organic ingredients. THE BAD: As you have probably already guessed, these products contain gluten. Even beyond those who have Celiac or gluten sensitivity, I am not a fan of the ingredient. In general, my clients feel better, suffer from fewer digestive issues, and see their energy improve through gluten elimination. Most of these seitan burgers also contain refined oils, so they are a pass for me.

In closing, are plantbased meat products actually better for us?

The simple answer is

YES, in general

However, I still strongly encourage all of my clients to read the ingredient lists of all of the products that they are considering purchasing and avoiding foods that contain GMOs, refined oils, large amounts of sodium or saturated fat, and other unnecessary additives like “natural flavors.” Always keep in mind that even though a product may not contain animal-derived ingredients, it does not automatically make it a healthy choice. When in doubt, opt for whole food, plant-based, close-to-theearth options.

48

Brands such as Amy’s and Hillary’s use a grain like rice or a combination of multiple grains as the base for their burgers. THE GOOD:Burgers developed by both of the brands mentioned above contain ingredients that are almost all organic. THE BAD: There have been reports popping up for the last couple of years that indicate high levels of the heavy metal arsenic in rice produced from different parts of the world. On top of that, I have found that a large number of grain-based burgers contain unnecessary fillers similar to the ones found in the various other vegan burgers that I mentioned along with substances like vegetable and guar gum and soy lecithin.


So good, no one knows!

So, what is CBD and how does it work? We all have an endocannabinoid system that regulates three of the bodies vital functions: • Central Nervous System • Hormone Regulation • Immunity CB1 and CB2 receptors are found throughout our body and respond to the phytocannabinoids in the plant, regulating our system. The impact is so powerful it targets our genes in order to understand what our body needs. Through scientific clinical studies we can prove that cannabinoids have profound effects on symptoms such as: diabetes, anti-inflammation, epilepsy, fertility, neurological development and some types of cancer. This is due to the plant’s capability to synthesis with our body and bring it back to homeostasis.

y name is Clare Navas and I’m a mother of two beautiful boys and have my own range of organic hemp products. I am passionate about wellness through natural healing. When I discovered the amazing properties of the hemp plant, I knew I had to dedicate my life to promoting its benefits. Through this devotion and love of wellness, I realised that there was a shortage of health practices that truly focused on the unique identity of the individual. By synergising the use of cannabinoids in wellness you truly get the bespoke package that is essential for true healing. I believe plants have transformative powers to heal, energise, as well as nourish, and that living well requires a conscious shift in our thinking, habits, and daily rituals. With this in mind we have created a range of organic products from tinctures to hemp protein powder to help you benefit from this amazing plant.


Cannabinoids and Energy Healing I am an energy healer and using CBD pre-treatment can really help the client relax. The cannabinoids in the plant help to stimulate the receptors allowing the mind to be more accessible to the process. I try to guide people to overcome their physical or mental state with a series of healing sessions that can help them feel more positive and focused.

TLE Elite Massage The receptors in the skin respond to the cannabinoids which help rejuvenate the body. CBD massages are highly recommended for anti-inflammation, antioxidants, and anti-anxiety. Using CBD massages on a regular basis will truly help you feel more relaxed and energized, ready for any challenge! The cannabinoids cleverly respond to what your body truly needs giving everyone a unique experience.

Cannabinoid Deficiency?... The Future With A Little Help From Science The Tle Dna Kit… We are collaborating with GreenwayDNA who’s kit carefully analyses your genes to find out what cannabinoids you are deficient in, we can then offer specialised programs to bring you back into homeostasis.

C B D and Sport Some of the benefits of CBD for sport are; weight management, increased muscle mass as well as being an antiinflammatory. CBD has proven to be a great tool for any athlete or sports fanatic! We recommend trying our healthy vegan hemp protein powder with a drop of CBD to enhance a work out. Taking the tincture, using the massage oil or eating hemp as an additional supplement will help to regenerate your body faster allowing you to train more intensely and recover quicker. Our 9 medal Gold Champion Morena from CBJJ uses the tinctures pre and post training to help with her tough training regime.

Our Enchanted Cannabinoid Supper Club We have our own Cannabinoid Supper Club events with our head chef Bruno who stimulates the taste buds with a variety of cannabinoidbased delights. The ultimate dinner party experience with surprises and entertainment which leaves you feeling ecstatic. You can add tinctures to dressings, the hemp seeds to salads and the protein to baking!

Seriously Slick Smoothies With Tle Cbd The cannabinoids in the food act as any other supplement, just better! This is real soul food as it leaves you feeling great as well as nourished! You can try our fabulous CBD and hemp smoothie at the Organic Pressed Juicery! Let us know how you feel as the cannabinoids infiltrate your digestive system! If you are interested in any of the above phytocannabinoid treatments or are curious about hemp and would like to learn more please don’t hesitate to contact us at: theleafextracts@gmail. com or book a personal appointment at Dynamic Gym Marbella. Products available online and at selected retailers only. Contact us to find the exclusive locations.

Tine’s e n Cor

My experience and understanding of the Marbella market grew and I recognised the desperate need for a Haute Couture Real Estate agency catering for the very exclusive property market where absolute discretion and personalized service is a must. So in 2010 my firm International Marbella was born – a dedicated bespoke real estate agency providing a tailored experience that differs client to client where our job is to negotiate clients the best deal on the buy and the most on the sell. Enough of that… During 2019 we hosted a series of successful Agents of Luxury events, of which one was the cocktail launch of the new Rolls Royce model where some 250 guests mingled among stunning cars while being served pink champagne and canapés and listening to live music from Susan Valery.

I

am very excited to launch Tine’s Corner, a new monthly column offering an insight into my world of Real Estate combined with my life in general. To start I suppose a brief introduction of myself is needed. My name is Tine Hagemeister and with a career spanning over 30 years both in London and Marbella, I have developed an understanding of the needs and opportunities for high-net-worth individuals looking to invest in the luxury residential real estate market in the South of Spain. My working life started in the mid 1980’s selling residential property in the exclusive Mayfair, Knightsbridge & Belgravia areas of London, an exciting cosmopolitan market oozing luxury property and high-powered clientele. In the mid 1990’s I married and relocated to Marbella to join my late husband. On arrival I was quickly headhunted by KS Sotheby’s International Real Estate as Director of Listings allowing me to enjoy a fun, busy and innovative period in my life spanning over 10 years.

Keep it Real

PPA ASSIVE HOUSE

Did you know that buildings are responsible for up to 56% of the pollution in our cities, compared to 13% that comes from car emissions, and they consume around 40% of primary energy. Just those facts alone show you how important an environmentally friendly building is for the environment. Villa Alcuzcuz is the first large, luxury residential villa in Spain to be built under

70

the demanding standards of PassiveHaus (Passive House). The project, developed by Bright, has been recognised by the prestigious International Property Awards with the awards ‘Best in Spain’ and ‘Best in Europe’ in the category of Architecture Single Residence. So, who is Bright? Bright is a real estate developer with a radically different

approach, in which design comes first. The company was founded by Michael Rodziewicz and Jason Harris, creative director of UDesign, an architecture and interior design firm based in Marbella since 2008. The combination of design studio and developer in the same team produces exceptional results. Not surprisingly Bright’s motto is ‘to improve the quality of life through design.’


Keep it Real

BRIGHT’S MOTTO IS ‘TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE T H R O U G H D E S I G N .’ In Europe there are only 25,000 certified PassiveHaus homes built under their strict standards of sustainability and energy efficiency, 101 of them are in Spain, of which Villa Alcuzcuz is the only one in the Marbella area. PassiveHaus was developed in the 1980’s in Germany in order to build houses with minimum energy consumption, and if at all possible, null consumption. ‘Passive Housing’ does not use contaminating energy methods, such as burning fuel, to produce and create a comfortable room temperature. Thus, this type of construction discards the usual cooling or heating mechanisms and yet manages to maintain an internal temperature of around 20ºC or 21ºC throughout the year. Over the course of a year, a Passive House consumes at most the equivalent of 1.5 litres of diesel or 1.5 m3 of natural gas (15kWh) to heat or cool each square meter of living space. This figure represents a reduction of more than 75 percent in energy consumption for air conditioning spaces, compared to the consumption in a typical building, while a new conventional building requires 6 to 10 (or even more) litres of diesel fuel per year and square meter of living space, depending on the quality and location of the building.

Villa Alcuzcuz is the first large, luxury home that respects the environment and is built in accordance with the Passive House Regulations and Standards and, in addition, stands out for having exquisite design that is arranged around a large central glass living space (with windows 6.5m high, something unprecedented in this type of construction) with privileged views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Strait of Gibraltar. Along with the Passive House building standards, Villa Alcuzcuz uses an aerothermal ventilation system and solar panels for water supply, underfloor heating and the LED lighting system. The design is also adapted to the plot, orienting the house to the south to take

advantage of southern Spain’s mild climate. Thus, the terraces are designed as large awnings that protect the house, giving shade inside and allowing heat to enter during the winter. Bright and UDesign took on the challenge of designing a residential villa where they could show that luxury and acclimatisation of large spaces (1,323 m2) are not at odds with sustainability and they achieved just that, and more.

“I like contrast! The juxtaposition of simp grandeur; the infusion of something diff Just as with food or music, spaces should feel something you never forget.”

RODA

“¡Me gusta el contraste! La armonía que Naturally!

Heidi Gubbins is a Marbella-based interior designer with an array of projects under her belt. Heidi has transformed spaces for private clients and collaborated with design firms and architects on numerous projects. Her stylish approach, focus, attention to detail and sensitivity to her clients’ wishes attract clients from Spain, Europe and the USA.

One of the joys of contemporary living is the luxury of creating an atmosphere that helps us experience our homes with imperceptible transition from the interior to the outdoors. This is made possible thanks to the intelligent designs and latest technology that design houses accrue and provide. With our 24/7 busy lifestyle, it is vitally important to create spaces that relax our senses through feelings of comfort and enjoyment. I believe to take pleasure in nature, with a sense of oneness, is a beautiful luxury.

través de la simplicidad y la grandeza! ¡In I recently met with Roda’s representative lo diferente! Al igual que con la música o who said to me “Heidi, I love to tell a story, let me take you through lossoespacios también deberían convertirs Roda’s”. I was hooked. experiencias nunca se olvidan.” In this issueque I’d like to expand on this and show you Roda’s new lines for 2020 and talk a little about the company. I’m sure you will love it as much as I do.

Heidi Gubbins

Each month, Heidi will offer design advice and spotlight some of her favourite and novelty items.

Founded in 1990, Roda spearhead in the production of high-quality outdoor furniture with a collections oozing in sophisticated and cosmopolitan style. With over twenty years of experience and successes, the founder, Roberto Pompa, was the first to introduce the concept of “IN & OUT”. RODA opens a new era, conceiving a new dimension of living that goes beyond the borders of the house: indoors and outdoor mingle with a harmonic language, in a spatial and conceptual continuum. The philosophy of RODA is based on the belief that it is possible to enjoy the outsides like a true interior design project, in which colors, materials and shapes remain faithful to the value of the spontaneity of living en plein air. Clean, rigorous and balanced lines give rise to materic and seductive collections, with perfect geometry. So, let me take you through their latest collections.

“The EDEN system is an expression of synthesis, a project that draws on RODA’s expertise in terms of manufacturing processes and use of padded materials, combining all these elements according to a more international, more contemporary and more versatile approach compared with the earlier collections” - Rodolfo Dordoni

One of my favourites for 2020 is EDEN The innovative combination of different materials extends to the backrests, which are presented in both the Batyline version and the padded belt option, made available in all the colours of the Mix&Match project by RODA.

The teak used for EDEN is called Weather Resistant Teak, a white coloured teak that undergoes several brushing and coating cycles which increase its properties of impermeability and resistance to the atmospheric agents.

LAZE SOFA

The lightness and transparency of the LAZE sofa immediately evokes a pleasant breeze passing through the filaments on a warm summer’s day, in a perfect combination of product, setting and nature.

PIPER

The perfect situation that expresses conviviality and the pleasure of outdoor living. PIPER chairs – with a teak structure and backrest with sky coloured belts – are combined with the PIER table, a lively set of

furniture to accompany your tranquil moments in complete outdoor comfort. On the left of the photograph is CADDY, RODA’s practical outdoor bar trolley.

ORSON

So chic and light! The lounge chair and stool from the ORSON collection with the new sky colour, with the STORK side table, for an intimate, relaxing and pleasant setting with teak as the protagonist in perfect harmony with surrounding nature.

PIPER ARMCHAIRS

Perfect to create a cosy corner by the pool.

DOUBLE

I love adding sectionals and moveable poufs to layouts. It adds flexibility to the occasion, depending on how and who you are entertaining. The elegance and vastness of the DOUBLE collection offers new composition solutions thanks to the square and rectangular poufs range.

ORSON, DIRECTOR’S CHAIR

The colours range of the ORSON teak director chair extends the variants offered by the new Batyline upholstery. In the photo is the Batyline director chair in grey, a spirited and elegant proposal for a sophisticated lunch, even outdoors.

76

In this picture it also includes the side tables from the ROOT line (on the left) – with a teak structure and circular top – and BERNARDO – with a square top in varnished stainless steel.


Home Couture

THEA The name of the collection, THEA, comes from Calathea, a plant that grows in South America and is known for its beautiful striped leaves. The pattern characterising the structure of the THEA modules, in fact, has been inspired by these leaves and is a distinctive element of their design.

“Our vision for the Thea collection was to create inviting, contemporary outdoor seating inspired by lines and shapes found in nature. The result offers plush, cocoon-like comfort within a sleek aluminum frame. Roda’s style and design sensibility, brand philosophy and professionalism has made this collaboration all the more successful and enjoyable.”

Universally regarded as the preeminent designer in the hospitality sector and a leading name in the cruise industry, Adam D. Tihany has created innovative interiors for hotels, restaurants and luxury ships in some of the most iconic establishments the world over. He was one of the first designers to collaborate with internationally renowned chefs to design the interiors of designer restaurants.

– Adam D. Tihany

PILLOW I love this outdoor light proposal! With PILLOW, for the first time ever, RODA adds a lighting fixture to its range of accessories for outdoor use.

PILLOW features an eye-shaped wooden base, available in a single size, and it can be 50 cm and 70 cm high. PILLOW is made of some of the materials traditionally used by RODA, such as natural teak and Batyline (only sand in this product), and features trimmings that define the sides of the lantern. The lantern can be moved or hung thanks to a handle made of belt, in grey. The adjustable LED light lets you create an intimate, relaxing atmosphere in any environment.

As always, I hope this feature has been inspirational to you, and that you will find ways to make your terrace space a beautiful experience for you and your loved ones.

The combination of transverse engine and front-wheeldrive under the Golf’s angular skin was not a new concept, having been pioneered by Alec Issigonis for the redoubtable BMC Mini of 1959. But this spacesaving drivetrain philosophy in a much larger hatchback with folding rear seats created a small family car with unprecedented versatility. While the compact hatchback segment went on to become the most popular car genre ever after the SUV, the design of the original Golf has stood the test of time well. Four and a half decades and 35 million sales later, its classic proportions, lines and detailing still look right from every angle. Unlike Toyota’s Corolla, which frequently re-invents its appearance and remains a Corolla in name only, VW has scrupulously maintained the Golf family resemblance across the generations, even though the car has grown in size over the years. This slow burn built around strong and consistent family values has enabled VW to not just build a loyal and enthusiastic customer base but also nurture an almost cult following for their staple model line. No surprise then that the brand new Mk 8 that arrives in European showrooms in March is instantly identifiable as a Golf. The rain was falling from a grey sky and the weather forecast threatened even more precipitation for the following day. It felt more like England than Portugal in late November for sure, and our mood was not improved when we learned that these were the only two days of rain to afflict the Porto region that week.

Bright colours look radiant in sunshine and they also work well in gloomy light. Picking the yellow Golf 2.0TDI for our first drive under leaden skies was thus a no brainer. An equally good reason was the popularity of the diesel powered Golf with European buyers.

If the exterior is familiar the revolutionary cabin is the biggest sea change ever seen between the interior design of one Golf generation and the next. The driving position is familiar Golf, which means upright but comfortable, with good all round visibility and a fine range of seat and steering wheel adjustability. But beyond that all the cabin hardware and software is brand spanking new. For starters the dashboard is deeper than usual to accommodate the optional Head-Up Display, the first time this driver aid has ever been offered on a Golf. A full-length air outlet strip like that on the Audi A4 separates the top and bottom halves of the dashboard. Using these three thinner visual elements in place of two thicker ones is the key to an interior that appears wider and more spacious even if the tape measure shows increases of mere millimetres. This sense of greater width is further enhanced by the line of the dashboard top continuing into the top rolls of the front doors. At night the variable colour mood lighting across the dashboard and door trims further underpins this linearity. Another major departure from past practice is the removal of the traditional vertical centre console element, which again allows the dashboard elements to emphasise unbroken horizontality. The centre console now starts under the dashboard with a storage compartment containing an induction phone charging panel and a pair of USB 3 ports. Aft of this you will find either the gear lever for the manual six-speed, or the much shrunken selector lever for the sevenspeed DSG twin-clutch auto that is part of the new shift-by-wire system. A pair of cup holders sits between the gearshift and the central armrest. The small DSG lever is reminiscent of how Porsche has shrunken its controller on the new 992 Carrera, the rationale being that you use the lever to select D, N, R and P functions, with manual ratio selection carried out via the steering wheel mounted paddles.

Within the now even more upmarket aura of the new Golf the instrument pack and infotainment functions are a clean break with the past, this being the first time that Golf instruments are totally digital. In this case the instrument pack display is 10.25 inches, while the standard infotainment system has an 8.25-inch screen. The optional upgrade system provides the 10.25-inch ‘Digital Cockpit’ with one of the two possible 10.0inch screens to make up the ‘Innovision Cockpit’. Ironically one of the downsides of these big touchscreens is the fact that you have to ‘touch’ them. The fingerprints that are clearly visible when the screen is deactivated are annoying to most people, even those without OCD tendencies. Thus, one of the new features that we like is the small buttons with slide and swipe functions placed on the ledge under the infotainment screen. These allow you to control the touchscreen function using minimal interaction with the screen itself. Touch operation is the theme running throughout the cabin, with the optional sunroof operated by a touch button in the roof console.

In the past it has sometimes been the case that an owner laments not ordering a particular feature, and certainly this can be the case when buying a used car. That situation has been overcome with the ‘retrospectively customisable’ feature of the new Golf that allows electronic based systems to not just be updated but also upgraded. Thus features like ACC Adaptive Cruise Control, Light Assist main beam control, navigation system, AppConnect, Wi-Fi hotspot and online-based voice control are some of the features that can be retrospectively activated by your local dealer. Operating the new touch screens is a fairly logical affair, but there were a couple of times when finding a particular function was not as easy as we would have liked. Activating the seat heating was straight-forward but when it came to demisting the windows the relevant had button greyed out on the screen and we had to pull over and dig deeper into the menu.

Interestingly the glitch that led up us to resort to the screen menu was the failure of the voice-activated system to understand to our request to demist the windows. In this respect the voice recognition software is not yet as convincing as the AI driven algorithms used by the Mercedes MBUX system.

G O L F OW N E R S R E A L LY C A R E A B O U T H OW T H E I R C A R S DRIVE AND THERE IS A WIDE S E L E C T I O N O F E N G I N E S TO C AT E R F O R P E T RO L A N D D I E S E L FA N S , W H I L E T H E NEW PLUG-IN E-GOLF WILL B E A L O N G TOWA R D S T H E END OF THE YEAR. The 1,968cc TDI motor delivers 150hp from 3,500-4,000rpm, underpinned by a healthy 400Nm of torque between 1,7503,000rpm. Paired with the 7-speed DSG twin-clutch transmission the diesel records a rapid 8.8 sec for the 0-100km/h sprint and tops out at 223 km/h. Once the engine is warmed through any diesel clatter fades into the background and the strong mid-range torque makes normal driving stress-free. You don’t need to use many revs to keep up a decent pace across country and this is reflected in the miserly fuel consumption. However, it was the petrol 1.5 TSI we drove on the second day that really engaged us as a total package. Its smooth and free-revving 1,498cc turbocharged petrol

engine delivers 150hp at 5,000-6,000rpm, with 250Nm of torque peaking from 1,500-3,500rpm. Despite its greater size and weight the 7-speed DSG equipped 1.5 TSI easily matches the 1985 Mk 2 Golf GTI 16v’s 8.5 sec sprint to 100km/h, and decisively beats it for top speed with a 224km/h Vmax. The aerodynamic drag coefficient has been neatly trimmed from the Mk. 7’s 0.3 to 0.275 with a lot of work also done to make the car quieter at cruise. That proved to be the case on the stretches of motorway where the new Golf just hums along at 120km/h on a light throttle in seventh gear. In fact cruising at 140km/h or even 160km/h on the autobahn feels quite natural thanks to the tall gearing and improved high speed stability in cross winds. As before all Golf models use McPherson strut front suspension, and the base 130hp Golf 1.5 TSI manual six-speed pairs this with a torsion beam rear axle whose roots are in the design used by the early generation Golfs. Crossing the 150hp threshold qualifies you for the more sophisticated multi-link independent rear suspension, so both the 2.0 TDI and 1.5 TSI we tested feature the superior rear axle arrangement. Suspension settings and electronic helpers apart the fundamental weight distribution of a car still makes a difference to the way it handles and steers. So as good as the 2.0 TDI is when you move the responsive steering off centre the smaller, lighter all-alloy 1.5 TSI petrol engine benefits from having 25-30kg less over its front wheels.

The difference comes across loud and clear both through the steering and your seat of the pants the moment you start to attack a twisty road. This light bulb moment tells you the chassis engineers have done an outstanding job on both the electric power steering and the frontto-rear axle calibration. I set up an interview with the chassis engineer and found myself face-to-face with Karsten Schebsdat, whom I last met on the launch of the Porsche 997 GT3 RS nearly a decade ago. Engineers often move between car companies, some within the same group, some not. Enthusiasts will know Karsten Schebsdat as the man responsible for the fine chassis of the original Ford Focus of 1998, the car that some say, “democratised good ride and handling in compact hatchbacks.” Karsten then went on to work at Porsche’s GT division at Weissach where we first met. A few years ago he moved north again to Wolfsburg where his enthusiasm for fine handling cars was most recently put to good use fettling the chassis of the Golf Mk.8. VW produced a short video of their Pikes Peak winning driver, Romain Dumas comparing equivalent Golf Mk.7 and Mk. 8 models on a short slalom. The footage shows the new car with the ghost of the old one superimposed on it for comparison.

While the basic suspension hardware is very similar we changed a few components and performed a lot of fine tuning on the suspension elastokinematics and steering,” Karsten explained. “The basic steering system’s ratio has been quickened slightly and is now 14.6:1 compared to 15.0:1 for the Mk.7. The variable system starts with 14.1 just off centre and goes down to 9.0:1 on lock. We also fine-tuned the power steering control software to reduce the response time between steering input and the reaction at the wheels.”

The Mk. 8 is already ahead after the first cone and by the end of the slalom it has pulled out a near two car lead. Exhibiting clear improvements in agility, neutrality, linearity and precision, the new model recorded 9.24 sec, a yawning 0.91 sec, or about 10% faster than its predecessor. More than the objective stopwatch superiority is the fact that the video shows how much neater the new car is in each direction change. Romain visibly and consistently shaves each cone closer in the Mk. 8, the Mk.7 tending to run a bit wider at the front and visibly less tidy at the rear.

A S W E F O U N D O U T F O R O U R S E LV E S O N T H E M O U N TA I N R O A D T H E N E W C H A S S I S S E T U P MAKES THE HANDLING OF THE NEW CAR C R I S P E R A N D TA U T E R . Turning into bends enthusiastically but with reassuring stability even on wet roads, this is a car whose handling is both entertaining and trustworthy.

“The front suspension control arm bushes are now stiffer laterally and softer longitudinally for more precise handling with better bump absorption,” he continued. “The locating points to which the control arms are fixed on the body-in-white are the same but they have been strengthened as have the anti-roll bar mounting points.” Cars with the optional Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) package have cast aluminium arms, which are stiffer and 31 grams lighter than the normal steel ones. DCC cars also have the alloy front sub-frame from the Mk 7 GTI Clubsport, which is a completely different shape from the steel component even though it shares the same mounting points. The latest version of the multi-link rear axle has modified control arm bushes aimed at increasing the rear axle understeer slightly to balance out the faster turn-in response of the revised front axle. In terms of numbers, where the Mk.7 needs 61° of steering lock to navigate the steady state cornering circle at 1.0 g the Mk. 8 requires just 55°. This equates to a 10% lower steering angle at the maximum grip level with tyre pressures of 2.5 bar all round. Work to improve the ride and handling characteristics of the dampers centres around the valves, which now open more smoothly and more precisely.This improves the cars low speed secondary ride over small, high frequency bumps. The collective result of all this work is a car whose suspension performance envelope has been extended at both ends to make it ride better in Comfort mode and more responsive in Sport mode at the other end of the scale. Turn-in is faster and more accurate, and because the rear now follows the front within a narrower time response window the car feels more allof-a-piece. “The trick is to achieve this without making the car subjectively nervous,” said Karsten. “It was also our goal to ensure that its characteristic velocity, i.e. the linearity of its handling once you exceed the limits of mechanical grip remain fairly linear so there are no nasty surprises if you overdo it.” Of course should you actually manage to defy the laws of physics the electronic safety systems are there to help you.

As we pointed the Golf Mk.8’s sleek nose towards Porto Airport, the clouds began to part with patches of blue sky appearing ever more frequently. On the slowly drying mountain roads the tarmac was bone dry in places, retaining a slight sheen of the overnight rain in others. Front-wheel-drive cars will usually let go at the front end first in damp conditions as their nose-heavy weight distribution encourage the tyre slip angle to march right up to the limits of mechanical grip and into understeer city. The accomplished chassis of the new Golf treated the mixed and constantly changing coefficient of grip on this challenging road as grist for the mill. As I pushed harder into the bends, searching for grip and leaning more and more on the keen front end in every turn it was soon apparent that VW has struck gold.

Save Money - Save the Planet M

ariposa Energía was founded in San Pedro de Alcantara with the aim of providing businesses and consumers with a source of cheaper, greener electricity. Protecting the future of our planet is vital, which is why they chose to source all the electricity they provide from 100% renewable and sustainable sources. They also believe there is no reason why you should pay over the odds for electricity, which is why you will find that the price of your electricity bill reduces when you switch with Mariposa Energía.

W h y pay m o r e fo r your energy than you need to? Switch energy suppliers with Mariposa Energía and they will save you money on the cost of your electricity. Simply send them a copy of your latest electricity bill from your current supplier, they will analyse your bill and then show you how much you could have saved by switching.

S w i t c h i n g i s ea s i e r than flicking a switch!

any new equipment, cables, electricity boxes or for any other work to be done. The switch is seamless and there will be no disruption to your energy supply. The only time you will notice the switch has occurred is when you start to receive cheaper bills!

H e l p to s av e t h e p la n et a n d re d u c e yo u r ca r b o n foo t p r i n t All electricity is certified as 100% green energy, coming from renewable and sustainable sources. Not only will you be saving money when you switch with Mariposa Energía, you will also be helping to save the future of our planet.

Yo u r f re e d o m to switch Did you know that the freedom to switch electricity suppliers has actually been available to all consumers in Spain since 2003? Spain’s electricity market was actually deregulated back in 1998 and made available to all just 5 years later. But it’s not a widely known fact and many consumers are not aware this opportunity is open to them.

G ett i n g a b ett e r d ea l The deregulation of electricity means that consumers have the freedom to switch energy suppliers and to shop around to find the best deal that suits them. If you find you are paying a lot for your electricity bill, especially if you are a business or a high consumer of energy, maybe now is the time to switch.

T h e o n ly time y o u w i ll notice the switch has o cc u rre d is when y o u s ta rt to rec e i v e c h ea p e r b i ll s !

H e l p to p rot ec t t h e f u t u re o f o u r p la n et w i t h 10 0 % g re e n e n e rg y Green energy comes from natural sources, such as wind, sunlight, rain and tides. This type of energy is known as renewable energy as it is easily replenished, unlike fossil fuels, such as coal and oil, which take millions of years to develop. Also, unlike fossil fuels, green energy produces little or no emissions and greenhouse gases, which are contributing significantly to world climate change. In 2015 the Paris Agreement, the first ever legally binding global climate change agreement of its kind, set out a global framework to limit the increase of global warming to well below 2 °C. More locally, Spain has pledged to cut greenhouses gases to 20% below the levels in 1990 by the year 2030. All the energy Mariposa Energía supplies comes from Spanish wind farms, using large wind turbines to harness the power of the wind and to convert it to energy. Their energy is certified 100% green by the CNMC (Comisión Nacional De Los Mercados Y La Competencia), an entity that promotes and defends the proper functioning of all markets, in the interests of both consumers and businesses.

Ian Greenland

ast month the discovery of an entirely new species of Tyrannosaur was announced following two years of research into fossilised bones discovered in Canada. A close relative of dino poster child T-Rex, Thanatotheristes degrootorum measured approx 8m (26ft) from its tail to its bitey end and stalked the North American wilds some 80 million years ago, give or take 500 millennia (admittedly a large margin of error if you’re waiting on a bus but slightly less in paleontological terms). The second part of its name bearing witness to John de Groot, the hiker and palaeontology enthusiast who unearthed its jawbone in 2018, Thanatotheristes translates from Greek as “reaper of death”.... I mean, they were never going to call it the snuggle-bunny but REAPER OF DEATH is still a pretty incendiary moniker. It’s always possible their reputation unfairly belies a sensitive, introspective nature, but since no needlepoint or poetry survive from the period, scientists have chosen to assume Tyrannosaur were mainly concerned with running round tearing other animals to shreds. It remains to this day the quintessential apex predator. The Google listing for the word Tyrannosaurus contains the line: Eaten by: Tyrannosaurus

…............

...probably tells you what you need to know. Of course it’s their ferocity, size and strangeness which make the many species of dinosaur such a captivating proposition to homo sapiens who never actually shared the planet with them... more’s the pity. Let’s face it, we’ve never been particularly good at sharing, but a 40ft T-rex weighing 10 tons might have

taught us a little humility. Dinosaurs are as fantastical as the monsters of campfire stories, science fiction to inflame the imagination, yet the fossil record proves they actually existed, which only serves to make them more wondrous. Of course, if like many creationists you believe fossils were placed on earth by Satan to test our belief in God, your imagination requires no further inflaming - A CT scan may be in order though. Just pop that MAGA hat off first...

Thanatotheristes translates from Greek as “reaper of death”.... I mean, they were never going to call it the snuggle-bunny...

Yesterday morning my son and I spent a solid two hours playing in the sand on Estepona beach with a crudely moulded plastic something-saurus we found in a charity shop toy basket back home in Brighton. He doesn’t care its poorly proportioned body and weird face looks like Godzilla boffed a koala


Let’s face it, we’ve never been particularly good at sharing, but a 40ft T-rex weighing 10 tons might have taught us a little humility.

(Satan probably had a hand in that one...), it’s a goddamn DINOSAUR, it completely destroyed Batman’s sand-cave then went down the slide backwards and it’s the coolest thing ever!! His mum, who frequently hums the theme tune to Jurassic Park in her sleep can’t wait until he’s old enough for her to show him her most favouritest film of all time over and over. I hope his generation won’t be too jaded by increasingly elaborate video games and CGI overload to marvel at just how stupendous it is when that brachiosaur first looms onto screen (“They‘re moving in herds. They do move in herds”.) There’s so much wonder around us; so many bizarre and beautiful animals inhabiting the deepest oceans, densest jungles and tallest peaks and it’s a travesty that countless species go extinct each day with not a jot of recognition from the world at large – disappearing forever with nary a Twitter #RIP or sad face on Facebook. In 2019, amongst several other species, we officially lost forever Achatinella apexfulva, a type of Hawaiian tree snail, Boulenger’s speckled skink, a tiny lizard and the Cunning Silverside freshwater fish of Mexico. Though sad, especially if their demise was “manmade” as opposed to the result of a more natural form of selection, none of these critters would ever have been able to flatten Batman’s sand-cave or take Samuel L. Jackson’s arm off at the shoulder. It took more than deforestation and a few too many high-rises to remove dinosaurs from the map. 66 million years ago, the meteor which struck the earth in that not-so-cunning Silverside’s country of origin was the size of a mountain and travelling 40,000 mph. It hit with an estimated explosive yield of 100 trillion (enough then...) tons of TNT, creating a fireball travelling hundreds of miles in all directions faster than sound, followed by a tsunami some 1000 feet high, colossal earthquakes, planet-engulfing ashclouds, nuclear winter, oat-milk shortages etc etc. Beyond the immediate, near incomprehensible devastation, the

knock on ecological disruption saw off 80% of all life on Earth, the majority of dinosaurs included. Even by meteor standards, it was a real prick. At least it provided a fittingly epic curtain call for the greatest beasts to ever stalk the earth – the word dinosaur translates from the Greek as “terrible lizard” - they weren’t terrible, they were fucking AWESOME. Cockroaches are terrible. They survived.... course they did. Beyond all the toys, the countless books, the TV shows and even the priceless museum relics, to this day it has to be Spielberg’s classic film which best conveys the majesty, power and total flipping coolness of these beasts. As cinema-goers lost their minds that summer, we asked ourselves whether the science so simply yet compellingly presented was sound – could you just grab a mosquito from some sap, suck a bit of liquid dino out of it, inject it up a frog’s arse and grow yourself a triceratops?.... NO, was the resounding answer in 1993, but then in 1993, Canadian beret-wearer Snow rapped in Jamaican patois on one-hit wonder Informer and we all seemed to think that was ok, so what the hell did we know back then?! Surely now, with our advanced understanding of bio-technology, genomic science and the inappropriateness of kids singing “a licky boom boom down”, the wonders of Jurassic Park are achievable?.... ...Unfortunately, still no. For too many scientifically grounded reasons to detail before I run out of page, the least of which is the oldest DNA we’ve recovered is some 65 million years short of dino times, it’s simply not going to happen. The world will likely never again host so many beasts of such grandeur, at least not under environmental conditions which would allow us to stick around to witness. Though a bitter pill for the child in us all, we have to accept that dinosaurs, like Snow, had their time and now they’re gone.... ...except they’re not. The countless birds so many of us take for granted / keep as pets / spot / feed /....eat are direct descendants of dinosaurs – the only direct descendants still around. They might not be as big or scary or impressive but they’re still technically dinosaurs so next time a seagull nicks your chips while you shoo away its mate, don’t think “stupid gull”, think “clever girl”.

DO WE GET TO EXPERIENCE THE TRUE NATURE OF TRAVEL IF WE ALREADY HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION IN ADVANCE?

While my family and I were recently traveling through South East Asia, one thing that really hit home was that travel is so incredibly different to when we were gap year students strapping on a backpack and cluelessly wafting off around the globe. Back then you had to plan your trip in advance, you had to have tickets printed out, you needed to know where to be and when and things were somewhat

structured. If you lost your flight information it meant finding an internet cafe, or, if you’re slightly older, going to the actual airport or finding a phone box, to recover your itinerary. Flights were not so two-a-penny back then, missing one felt like an enormous and gut-wrenching mistake, not just from a financial point of view, but also because, well you just couldn’t do that. It was huge. Now it feels as though flights are like buses; there’ll be another one along in a minute. The obvious difference is the digital age, back then we didn’t have mobiles and laptops and iPads or anything else that falls under the ‘devices’ umbrella. We set off with a Lonely Planet guide and some big, wide-eyed ideas. You’d want to know where you were going to be staying if you were landing in Mumbai in the middle of the night,


DO WE GET TO EXPERIENCE THE TRUE NATURE OF TRAVEL IF WE ALREADY HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION IN ADVANCE? not hoping you’ll figure out how to negotiate chaos in another language resembling nothing you’ve ever seen or experienced before. No, you booked in advance and hoped you’d find a nice taxi driver to get you there, and not go via his favourite uncle twice removed’s place just in case you’d rather tend to his cockroaches than at the hostel you are hoping isn’t awful. Now, we look online at photographs, detailed information, square metre-age, personal reviews, and star ratings of every type under the sun before we decide on where to lay our heads, and we can cancel, upgrade, switch swap and change everything at the last minute should we change our minds. We don’t even have to go as far as booking too far in advance because we have access to everything that is available in a tenthousand kilometre radius and can decide nearer the time if we want to - on the taxi ride there if we like! We can decide to take a train and by the time we arrive at the station we have tickets booked and paid for, the hotel at the other end organised and a car to take us there. We can even purchase clothes, equipment and any other “necessities” online to be

waiting for us at the hotel. Yes, travel has changed. We noticed this vast difference so much when travelling through Asia (where the internet coverage is impeccable I must say) that we were able to monitor, track and visualise everything we were about to experience before we even got there. We could get in a taxi and track where we were going from the back seat to make sure we didn’t get ‘NewYork-Cabbed’ and driven round in circles (or blocks) to keep the metre clicking. There’s a lot less advantagetaking of tourists in this respect, but some of the mystery of travel can be lost. There are flip sides to all this digital versus blindfolded way of travelling - we get to be more spontaneous with access to all options at all times, but do we get to experience the true nature of travel if we already have all the information in advance? Trip Advisor and the like are encouraging restaurants and hotels to keep standards high, but do I really want to know whether Hans from Frankfurt enjoyed his Pad Thai enough to sway my decision as to whether I’ll go somewhere to eat tonight? Don’t you want to be able to stumble across an interesting little place that isn’t on the digital map, where mama is cooking up her traditional fare and only the locals go to eat? Don’t you want to walk into a homestay because you met someone while you were walking an off the beaten path trail and ran into the niece of a local family who love to show foreign folk around their farm and feed them? I do! The art of experience seems to be a little lost when you look at travel through a phone, however safety and spontaneity are such big pulls that it is difficult to avoid the temptation to quickly check something out online beforehand.

hundreds by using their app on this particular room…however, if you head to any other website advertising rooms for the same place, you’ll find that it is exactly the same price. The way they get around it is to show the price of the most expensive room in that hotel, put a big red slash through that one and show you the cost of the room you’ve chosen next to it. It’s not a lie but it is a trick. Personally I’d rather get driven around in circles and taken to Great-Uncle Shwarmi’s place and give a little extra to those who need it than be swindled by a multimillion dollar company. Maybe that’s just me.

DON’T YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO STUMBLE ACROSS AN INTERESTING LITTLE PLACE THAT ISN’T ON THE DIGITAL MAP, WHERE MAMA IS COOKING UP HER TRADITIONAL FARE AND ONLY THE LOCALS GO TO EAT?

It’s a tough call wether to claim to prefer to go out into the big wide world with the naivety of a backpacker or to set off with full knowledge of everything that you may come across and be prepared for it, no surprises. I guess somewhere in between is the best solution. Have an idea of where you’re going and when, be at liberty to be able to change this spontaneously, and at the same time be open to experience once you arrive, get around safely but also see the place for what it really is through your, own and the local people’s, eyes - not your phone.

And the ‘being taken advantage of as a tourist’ concept, well, it’ll never be completely lost - these days we are sucked in by the apps, the hotel discount offers, book now and save thousands on your deal, etc. etc. I quickly realised I was being subtly scammed when using a certain hotel booking app, it shouts out in big bold numbers that you are saving

Retreat Day

COSTA CUISINE

Bettina, our resident foodie, offers her insider knowledge on plant based cuisine and takes us on a culinary journey as she travels the world in search of gastronomic inspiration

As a chef, author and Instagrammer, the only interaction I really get with my followers and the people who cook my recipes is through my phone. I love retreat time because it means I get to meet the attendees and make an authentic connection we wouldn’t otherwise have through the phone screen, and they can get to know me, too. Hosting my retreats has been one of the most rewarding, fun parts of my job to date as I’m combining my cooking skills and my love of food and health that got me started in the first place and sharing that directly with other foodies like me! A lot of planning, preparation and execution goes into running retreats so when it all comes together in that final week and I can immerse myself in the experience with my guests, it really is special. For me, a day on one of my retreats looks something like this: Photos by Jade Nina Sarkhel

5:30 am. Unlike in London, when I am in Bali, I have no problems waking up early and I am often woken by the smell of incense from the ladies who come before sunrise to bless the house. I get dressed, and pop down to the kitchen to make sure there are teas and smoothies for everyone before they go to their morning sound healing session. 8:00 am Breakfast. Made by me while everyone is in their morning class, our first meal of the day always includes a delicious choice of organic, local fare. This morning we tuck into colourful fruits and a traditional black rice coconut bowl topped with caramelised banana, coconut flakes and fresh coconut cream. 9:00 - 10:00 am Free time for guests. While they treat themselves to

Day 1 massages and spa treatments or just enjoy some nourishing time to themselves chilling by the pools, I spend this time catching up with everyone and answering any questions they have. 11:00 Workshop time! Today’s theme is Gut Health and I am teaching everybody how we can improve the health of our guts with plant-based foods. We learn to cook tasty recipes that are easy to replicate at home following the take-home recipe cards. I know that being back at home and in an everyday routine is a very different vibe from being on a retreat and can be a hurdle on people’s wellness journeys, so it’s important to me to make it as easy as possible for my guests to maintain their new healthy habits and motivation once the retreat week is over.

12:30 Lunch prep. Each day, a guest joins me in the kitchen to help out with meal preparations. This is one of my favourite traditions because it means I can share my tips and tricks to healthy eating in a practical and personal way, and have some fun! My guest helper and I prep, cook and serve lunch together whilst having a lovely chat, lots of giggles, and sneaking in some cheeky taste testing! 15:00 After lunch I spend some time with my guests to find out how they’re getting on. I also check that the tea station is filled with goodies and that the kitchen is well stocked. I then welcome Dewa to the Retreat. Dewa is a Balian taksu, or Holy man, and a dear friend I have known since I first came to Bali. Like most aspects of daily life here, the island’s ancient healing arts are intrinsically linked to Balinese Hinduism and are all about maintaining balance for optimal health, which strongly influences my own message, recipes, and approach to wellness. I had huge success with Dewa’s methods myself, so I love having him here and getting to see him help my guests on their journeys, too.

Balinese people are big on their flowers so every night the tables are set with fresh flower displays and candles.... Each evening has a different theme, feel and colour scheme... 108


COSTA CUISINE

15:00 - 18:00 pm While everyone has their sessions with Dewa I prepare for the week’s excursions. Tomorrow we will visit the organic farm to pick our own vegetables to cook for the week’s meals. This week we’ll also be visiting a local ceramic factory, a traditional water temple, and will go for dinner at an amazing plant-based restaurant. I then return to the kitchens with another volunteer who will help with this evening’s meal. 19:00 pm. We all sit down and enjoy dinner together. Balinese people are big on their flowers so every night the tables are set with fresh flower displays and candles. Each evening has a different theme, feel and colour scheme and tonight’s theme is based around the colour red. 

109


COSTA CUISINE

20:30pm. I pop to the kitchen to make this evening’s ‘sleepy drink’, golden milk infused with Balinese coconut syrup, cinnamon, and turmeric. Every night we have a hot drink together to aid digestion and reduce anxiety for a truly deep and nourishing sleep. I also hand out “magic seeds”, a mix I have been using for years, to aid gut health and digestion overnight. I stay up a little while to relax, bask in the ambiance and chat with everyone before eventually heading to bed, ready for a good night’s sleep to carry me onto tomorrow’s adventure.

Sharing what I have learnt over the years with clients is the highlight of my year. These retreats are intimate and unpredictable. That is the magic of them. Real connections are made, even for me as I have connected with my clients and formed real friendships

over food and experiences. Not only do these retreats help people connect back to themselves it also helps me keep my feet firmly on the ground and reminds me why I do what I do in the first place.

COSTA CUISINE

Smokin’ Hot After making a name for itself on the front line of Puerto Banus, Jacks Smokehouse has expanded with a second location opening in Benalmadena.

Conveniently located in the heart of the vibrant Puerto Marina, Jacks Smokehouse presents a uniquely scenic spot for breakfast, a family lunch, date night dinner or after work drinks. Boasting chic rustic décor, Jacks Smokehouse features custom designed furnishings and distinct dining areas rich in character and style, offering a true taste of downtown Manhattan with the stunning Puerto Marina backdrop. The authentic BBQ inspired menu boasts a large range of smoked meats complimented by delicious cheeses and homemade accompaniments, all served in American style ginormous portions. The new bar area transports you straight to the Upper East Side where Jacks mixologists will create a variety of throwback tipples, ideal for starting the night as you mean to go on. We visited on a busy Friday afternoon ready to eat, eat and eat again. In the mood to share we started with the Jacks Combo Platter brimming with Smokehouse

112

THE AUTHENTIC BBQ INSPIRED MENU BOASTS A LARGE RANGE OF SMOKED MEATS COMPLIMENTED BY DELICIOUS CHEESES AND HOMEMADE ACCOMPANIMENTS

chicken poppers, crispy prawns, smoked wings that simply fell off the bone, pulled pork sliders (enough said!) and ranch dressing and jalapeño jam for the obligatory dipping. For the veggies, don’t worry, you won’t miss out as the Garden Combo Platter is designed for you. Tempura corn, smoked cheese quesadillas and crispy avocado sliders are just some of the treats on offer. To follow, we dived into the Smokehouse BBQ Ribs and the Chargrilled Lamb Rack; the latter served with a divine buttered mash, green beans and fragrant maple and mint gravy. The classic ribs were even more tender than expected, falling off the bone with every bite and coated in that delicious BBQ sauce. As we rolled our sleeves up and tucked in, a sizzling platter passed our table and made us sit up in our seats! What was that smell? We had to have it! The waiter informed us it was sizzling fajitas, and in the spirit of pigging out, we ordered one to join the party! Food envy at its finest! Other standout dishes include the 40-day dry-aged Galician Tomahawk steak, the Seared Tuna Burger with grilled halloumi, Jacks Bean Me Up homemade five bean burger and the house minced and pressed prime beef burgers. We recommend The Royal Smokehouse; pure Wagyu (shorthorn Japanese breed beef), sriracha butter, Swiss cheese, truffle chilli parmesan fries with a side of black truffle mayo. With all dishes you can swap skinny fries for sweet potato fries for 0.75€ and speaking of


COSTA CUISINE

sweet potato fries, I must also take a moment to mention the side orders on offer, (not that we needed any more food on our table). No boring side accompaniments here, charred corn on the cob, crispy onion rings, mac & cheese and roasted creole vegetables are a few of the highlights to round out your main if you’re feeling exceptionally peckish! Dessert to me is the most important course of the meal (perhaps the most important meal of the day), so despite needing to loosen a belt buckle there was simply no way I was missing out, especially with delights including

Malteser Tiramisu, American Waffles and Key Lime Pie making an appearance. I opted for the Tiramisu as anything with Malteser in the title has my vote! My partner went for Warm Chocolate Brownie, another sound choice, particularly the smoked chilli chocolate sauce, I would return just for that! We set out to EAT with a capital E and that was most certainly what we did. Jacks Smokehouse in Benalmadena is a brilliant addition to the brand with a menu that suits just about everyone’s tastes, exceptional décor and a bustling ambiance… what’s not to like?!

HAIR TRANSFORMATIONS HELP IS AT HAND Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.

Members came from all over Europe as well as North & South America and even Australia.

AA had commenced a program of school talks, which are aimed at making young people aware of the destruction of drink and drugs and letting them know “There is a Solution.” Further to this, they have also started a series of talks to the British Legion, making veterans, their families and their supporters aware that life can be turned around even when it may seem hopeless.

It was after dinner when Bhavesh suggested that we go for a walk on the beach. As we walked towards the sea, I was holding on to him and walking with precaution as it was dark with only the moonlight to guide us, and the deck that led to the rocks above the shore had large enough gaps for my stilettos to become wedged in! When we arrived at the beach, the moonlight hit the waves that were rolling onto the sand - we just stood there in awe of the scenery. We held each other tight and reminisced about the amazing times we had been through together over all the years we had known each other. He then suddenly said, ‘Can you see that?’ I turned around to see what he was pointing at, and as I looked down, a light shone on to the rocks where there was a sign that read, ‘Marry Me?’. I then turned back around to see that Bhavesh had got down on one knee! He told me that he wanted to spend the rest of his life and more with me

I thought he may have booked us in for a spa day or he would take me shopping… No. He had booked us both in for a skydive! Fancy being proposed to and then kicked out of a helicopter at 12000 ft... romantic at first, daringly devilish to end.

went to Cuba and that was where Bhavesh proposed to me. We were on a tiny island off the south coast of Cuba and on our last night on the island (we were due to fly to Varadero the next day to continue our holiday), Bhavesh had booked us a table at a restaurant. When we arrived, I was surprised to see that he had arranged for us to dine in a private cabana that was beautifully decorated with candles, flowers and white curtains that were softly blowing in the breeze. During our meal, we were serenaded with beautiful Spanish love songs. At this point he told me that he did this for me

MEANT TO BE…

We were young, crazy and care free at 17 years old. We knew of each other through friends and in the few times we would bump into each other I would sometimes get a wink and a smile and he would get a little wave back. Who would have known that 17 years later, I would be married to him!

Elegant Asian Affair

ALL I EVER WANTED AND MORE…

The wedding planning begun almost immediately after we had returned back to the UK. I had always dreamt of an outdoors wedding, with beautiful scenery and romance. I already knew that this would be the theme throughout. We decided to marry in Spain as we both travelled there often. Spain has always been a destination close to home and close to my heart... the ambience, the people, the laidback attitude, the weather and climate.... we had to get married in Spain!

True Blue

morning, the blessing ceremony in the afternoon followed by cocktails and the reception party into the night. All were outdoors, the weather was amazing and all this infused with the surroundings and the ‘buzz’ our guests came with made it truly the best wedding, I myself, had ever been to, and I still can’t believe that it was my own. I knew I wanted a traditional Hindu wedding with a twist of vintage and regal attire. Dianna from Party People and the team at Beau Rivaaaj ensured that the setting was just that and the planning was impeccable. The mandap was decorated with beautiful fabrics and hanging ornaments. It looked exquisite with traditional but subtle colours. The large pillars surrounding the amphitheatre were draped with beautiful images of Lord Ganesh. For the blessing ceremony, Dianna had stripped away the colours and left a beautiful plain white chuppah that was complemented by the surroundings of the Roman Stone amphitheatre. The ivory and soft pink flowers paired with our outfits made a perfect combination against the sunlight and the greenery.
