David Walliams' award-winning book comes to life on stage for the first time in the UAE for children 6-12 and their adults too.

20,000 people will walk 5km to make a change for the UAE, in celebration of World Diabetes Day. The day will be packed with family-friendly fun, healthy food and beverage and live entertainment. The fun will start at 2pm and the walk steps off at 5pm.

Get your friends and family together and join the UAE in making a difference. Walk to prevent diabetes. Walk for a healthier UAE. Walk for a healthier you.

It all starts when Chloe, just about the loneliest girl in the world, makes friends with Mr Stink, the local tramp. Sure he smells a bit, but he's the only person who's ever been nice to her. So, when Mr Stink needs a place to stay, Chloe decides to hide him in the garden shed. Now Chloe's got to make sure no one finds out her secret, but she's about to learn that some secrets have a way of leading to disaster. And speaking of secrets, there just might be more to Mr Stink than meets the eye… or the nose…

Abu Dhabi is a city on the move. Not content with enjoying one of the world's richest oil reserves, the region has recently thrown itself into a massive programme of development. And one of the jewels in Abu Dhabi's crown is the new 5.55kilometre Yas Marina Circuit, which on November 1, 2009, hosted the country's inaugural Grand Prix. It was also the first F1 twighlight race, with powerful lighting ensuring a seamless transition from day to night.

| 26 |

Located on the spectacular Yas Island, the track is set to revolutionise the design of future Formula One circuits. Boasting top speeds of 320 km/h and average speeds of 195 km/h, it features nine right turns and 12 le turns and is one of the few venues on the calendar to run in an anti-clockwise direction.

Designed by renowned circuit architect Hermann Tilke, Yas Marina has a waterfront seing scenic enough to rival the likes of Monaco and Valencia. And with the track wrapping itself around the island's glamorous newly-built marina, there's plenty of mooring space for the paddock's plethora of yachts. Its distinctive design also boasts several innovative elements including the iconic five-star, 499-room Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi hotel, which straddles the circuit; the 60-metre solar powered Sun Tower, which offers unrivalled views for invited guests; and a pit lane which sees the cars exit via a tunnel passing under the track.


LUXURY FORMULA 1

Another world ďŹ rst is that all of the grandstands, including the massive hairpin seating area, are covered to protect spectators from the desert sun, whilst the state-of-the-art pit building boasts 40 air-conditioned garages. Luxuriant comforts and ďŹ rst-rate views are clearly the watchwords for Abu Dhabi race goers.

The track itself was designed with racing in mind. As well as the waterside marina area, there are high-speed sections (including the longest straight on the F1 calendar), tight corners for overtaking, and even a twisty street circuit-style sector. Overall, its diverse elements come together to create one of the longest and most demanding tracks in the world, where close and competitive racing is guaranteed.

Why go? It’s hard to find a more spectacular seing for a Grand Prix than Yas Island, on the eastern side of Abu Dhabi.

The track has many unique touches. It runs alongside the island’s spectacular marina; it passes under the new 5-star Yas Viceroy hotel and alongside a new 60-metre sun tower. The exit of the pit lane even crosses under the circuit.

“It's a very impressive facility and the track layout is fun, so it's a great place," says Williams driver Felipe Massa. "With Ferrari World just around the corner, the race has a strong Ferrari flavour." Away from Yas Island, Abu Dhabi has lots to offer. It’s the largest and wealthiest of the seven United Arab Emirates, with a crude oil supply that isn’t expected to run out until the 22nd century. Unlike some of its neighbours in the Gulf, Abu Dhabi has retained its local traditions and charms, making it an enjoyable and interesting stop-off.

Did you know? Abu Dhabi is the world’s richest city. The average net worth of the 420,000 permanent citizens is US$17 million. Useful tips With the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix being near the end of the season, the weather conditions are not too extreme. Midday temperatures of between 25-30 degrees can be expected, but the grandstands are all covered - a ďŹ rst for a circuit anywhere in the world - so shade is easy to come by.

Where to go? Abu Dhabi has a very cosmopolitan feel and there is something for everyone. There’s an eclectic mix of international cuisine to suit all budgets, starting at the Emirates Palace (for a time the world’s most expensive hotel) down to the cafe culture that prevails throughout the Middle East. For traditional Abu Dhabi cuisine, head to the area surrounding the fish market in Abu Dhabi city. There are plenty of other tourist aractions. If you want local culture, why not head to the camel market in Al Ain or the Abu Dhabi falcon hospital. And, of course, there is the aforementioned Ferrari Theme Park, covering 250,000 square metres and featuring a G-Force Tower, driving schools for children and adults, high-tech theatres and lots of cars on display.

From 2012 there'll be even more of an international flavour in Abu Dhabi, with the opening of the Louvre Abu Dhabi, the first Louvre museum outside France. Where to stay? All the best hotel chains are in Abu Dhabi - and many of them on Yas Island - so you can expect to be looked aer wherever you go. Most of the F1 luminaries stay in the 5-star Yas Viceroy hotel, which is just a short walk from the F1 paddock. But for those looking for more modest surroundings, there are cheaper options available in Abu Dhabi city.


LUXURY FORMULA 1

Extended stay Once you’ve checked out Abu Dhabi city, why not head out into the Rub Al Khali desert, which is known locally as 'The Empty Quarter'. Only a short distance from the city limits, you’ll find yourself surrounded by sand dunes. The town of Al Ain is another popular tourist destination. It’s regarded as the spiritual heart of Abu Dhabi, having been built on seven oases and inhabited for more than 3,000 years. It’s on the Tentative List of World Heritage Sites of UNESCO.

Enthusiasts only There’s plenty to see at Yas Marina Circuit, aside from watching Formula One cars. There’s drag racing and an off-road driving centre, and you can test your own skills at a state-of-the-art kart centre. If you think your technique needs some work, there’s even a driving school for you to aend. www.formula1.com/content/fomwebsite/en/championship/races/2016/Abu_Dha bi.html

VIP CONCERTS

ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX AFTER-RACE CONCERT Rihanna, Lionel Ritchie and the Chemical Brothers will perform at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix later this year. The two acts will be part of the Yasalam Aer-Race Concerts at Yas Island’s du Arena during the Formula One weekend. Rihanna, currently riding high on the charts with top-selling album Anti and the chart-topping single Work, is playing the prestigious final raceday concert on Sunday, November 27. The Barbadian pop star was in 2015 named as the best-selling digital singles artist of all-time, clocking sales of more than 100 million. The show marks the 28-year-old’s third performance in the capital. She made her UAE concert debut in 2009 before returning in 2013 with her Diamonds World Tour at du Arena. The Chemical Brothers will perform on Friday November 25. Formed in 1989, the veteran duo of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons are considered forefathers of the 1990s big beat movement in dance music, with seminal singles including Hey Boy Hey Girl, Block Rockin’ Beats and Seing Sun. Following a five-year hiatus, the 2015 release Born in the Echoes was viewed by many fans as a return to form. November’s gig will mark their first appearance in the UAE.

| 32 |

A real coup, however, is the booking of soul star, Lionel Ritchie, to perform on the Saturday night. The concert will mark a return for the 67-year-old,

whose last UAE performance was at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre in 2014. "I am so thrilled to be performing all the hits at the 2016 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Yasalam Aer Race concert on Saturday," Richie said via video link. "You will see me performing live at the biggest sporting event in the Middle East. Along with the Chemical Borthers and Rihanna, this is gearing up to be one of the most incredible weekends ever. We are going to have a party all night long." "It’s going to be a giant singalong," said Flash Entertainment chief executive John Lickrish. "He is a fantastic performer. Anyone can go to his show and everyone will know the songs and have a good time." Another fresh incentive is that all weekend-ticket holders will receive free entry to nearby Ferrari World and Yas Waterworld, announced Karim El Guanaini, senior vice president of destination management at Yas Island. The Yasalam Aer-Race Concerts are only open to race-day ticket holders. Since the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix debut in 2009, the series has aracted some of the biggest names in music. The 2016 bill marks a departure from recent trends.


LUXURY FORMULA 1

Lionel Ritchie Global superstar Lionel Richie will take to the du Arena stage on Saturday 26 November performing hits from his extensive and much loved repertoire, spanning decades all the way from the Commodores to the present day. With a celebrated career including over 100 million albums worldwide and countless awards, including four GRAMMYs, a Golden Globe and an Oscar, Lionel’s shows are renowned for their party atmosphere and singalong moments.

Yas Marina Circuit is an awe-inspiring experience for drivers and spectators alike, with a waterfront seing to rival the likes of Monaco and Singapore. The circuit is straddled by the Yas Viceroy Hotel and also features a 60-metre solar powered Shams Tower and a pit lane, which sees the cars exit via a tunnel passing under the track. Offtrack, the entertainment throughout this event shows Abu Dhabi at its most glamorous. Among other things, live concerts featuring performances by major international artists, in the past have included Price, Jay Z, Muse, Beyoncé, Aerosmith, Linkin Park, and Paul McCartney to name a few, as well VIP parties for F1®’s top stars make this the uncontested social and sporting occasion of the year.

Mr. Bernie Ecclestone, President of Formula One, has described the Yas Marina Circuit as “one of the most exciting tracks I have ever seen,” high praise for the venue of the first F1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix which was held on November 1, 2009. From the twisting Singapore-style street sections to the Monaco-style marina, the Yas Marina Circuit serves up an array of driving challenges for the world’s best drivers. Soak up the action of the Grand Prix from the viewer-friendly grandstands or go for the more luxurious option of the Marina Hotel or alternative VIP hospitality suites doed around the track. You could also opt, with a nautical frame of mind, to view the Grand Prix race from your yacht moored in the iconic Yas Marina.

FERRARI RECORD BREAKING ROLLER COASTER, FLYING ACES, ACCLAIMED FOR HAVING THE WORLD’S TALLEST LOOP AND STEEPEST STARTING HILL INCLINATION, IS SET TO LAUNCH DURING THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2016 | 70 |

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is set to welcome thrill seekers from around the world onboard its record breaking roller coaster Flying Aces. The first of many surprises to be unveiled as part of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s expansion, Flying Aces, is set to take guests to speeds up to 120kmph along a 1.5km track featuring a 52 meter (170) tall loop and a 51 degree steep li. The architectural masterpiece will offer extreme gravity defying flight acrobatics that include a non-inverted loop, down flips and plenty of airtime.


LUXURY YAS

WORLD Commenting on the launch, Jesse Vargas, General Manager at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi said: “The groundbreaking engineering and technologies behind this bi-plane coaster will give guests the thrill of their lives. We have completed 50 per cent of the construction of Flying Aces and are simultaneously working on other rides and aractions to launch in 2016.

We have made a complex roller coaster emerge under our red roof in less than a year, an amazing achievement, especially when we take into consideration that most other theme parks take approximately 3 years to deliver a similar feat.”

Due to its exceptional thrill features and strong connection to Ferrari’s heritage, the first plane themed coaster is also the first of five major rides & aractions to be launched as part of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s massive expansion. Already home to the world’s fastest roller coaster ‘Formula Rossa’, the bi-plane themed coaster represents the latest addition to the Park’s offering. Flying Aces brings to life the story behind Ferrari’s Cavallino logo, inspired by Italy’s ‘ace of aces’ Count Francesco Baracca. Count Baracca was a famous Italian aviator in the 1900’s and his legendary Prancing Horse emblem was inherited by Enzo Ferrari for good luck.

In 2014, the Park revealed to the world its extraordinary expansion plans that will add more rides and aractions to appeal to guests of all ages. The innovative offerings are expected to increase the Park’s overall capacity by 40 percent, reduce waiting time and enhancing the overall guest’s experience. In regards to the expansion, Jesse added: “We are very proud of our expansion’s progress to date and how close we are to achieving our goal. There hasn’t been a theme park that has been adding to its offerings at the pace we are seing.


LUXURY YAS

The amount we have invested in our expansion is roughly the same it would cost to open a new Park. We are confident that the new rides and aractions will satisfy our guests thirst for family excitement and white knuckle thrills.”

The Park recently launched Karting Academy for guests to challenge one another in electric powered go karts, and for the lile champs, an allnew Junior Training Camp has been enhanced with a so play area and a winning mix of climbing activities. In addition, guests finally have the chance to drive the dream aboard a Ferrari California with the brand new Driving Experience, offered for the first time in a theme park.

CIPRIANI YAS ISLAND TO SERVE IS FIRST TO LOVE

It all started in 1931 when a long-sought dream became reality and Giuseppe Cipriani Sr. opened the doors of Harry’s Bar. In a discreet stone building perched along a canal just off Piazza San Marco in Venice, he created a timeless and impeccably appointed establishment. His concept was to serve others as you would want to be served yourself. His vision of simple luxury came to touch the souls of people all over the world. At Harry’s Bar in Venice, all clients are treated like royalty. Simple elements such as true service and devotion have elevated Harry’s to legendary status. Nonetheless, it became a popular destination for royalty, dignitaries and celebrities. It was featured in international media and very quickly word of its impeccable quality and service spread around the world. Many years later, the son of Giuseppe Sr., Arrigo Cipriani, opened his first restaurant across the ocean, in New York. The location was perfect, with two big windows that opened towards Central Park, dividing Manhaan in two.According to Arrigo, he was excited to show people around the world who had copied the Cipriani name, that names are not what counts. What you have to copy is what is inside. And with the same spirit and passion of his father, in 1985 Arrigo opened Harry Cipriani on 5th Avenue and started the legacy of what has become one of the most recognizable hospitality groups in the world.

| 82 |

The secret of Cipriani isn’t about what can be seen or touched, but what can be felt and sensed. It is intangible but palpable. It can’t be patented, but even aer eighty-four years it hasn’t been duplicated by others. Four generations of Cipriani have grown a single restaurant into a world renowned hospitality brand still recognized for its distinguished venues and service all over the world. The same quality and passion is embodied at Cipriani Yas Island.

THE FOOD The concept of the food at Cipriani is easy. Simple Italian food done to perfection. Our chefs come from all over Italy and no maer where they are from, they all use a combination of local ingredients and products imported directly from Italy; everything is made fresh in the kitchen every day including our pastas and famous desserts. The restaurant menu consists of some of our traditional, signature dishes from Harry’s Bar in Venice, like the famous baked tagliolini, risoo Primavera, carpaccio alla Cipriani, invented by Giuseppe Cipriani Sr. in Venice in 1950, calves liver alla Veneziana, vanilla crème meringue and many others with an addition of items that change daily. For groups, special events, and parties, we have several set menus available to choose from. They range in price to suit the budget of the event and we also have a drink package including both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options.

CIPRIANI YAS ISLAND Cipriani Yas Island is the first location in the Middle East and North Africa region and brings with it all the tradition and style of the rich history of Cipriani. It is a 360 person capacity restaurant with a wrap around terrace, three private dining areas, Bellini Lounge, main kitchen, private kitchen, private bar, state of the art sound system and stunning views of Yas Marina and Yas Marina Circuit race track. RESTAURANT From its style and location to the food, Cipriani Yas Island embodies simple timeless luxury. With couches, comfortable seats and a library, guests feel welcome and at home. Adding to this is our high standard of service. The interior design evokes the essence of boats passing through the canals of Venice with wood interiors, white leather seats and linen tablecloths. No maer what type of event you are planning, Cipriani Yas Island can cater to all your needs from its private dining areas to booking the whole restaurant.

THE BELLINI LOUNGE Just as the original Harry’s Bar in Venice, the bar at Cipriani Yas Island, called the Bellini lounge, greets you as you enter the restaurant. Guests typically enjoy their first drink with the signature Bellini, a perfect combination of fresh white peach puree and Prosecco, invented by Giuseppe Cipriani Sr. at Harry’s Bar in 1948. For events and special occasions there is a place for a DJ and curtains that can close off the area for private functions. Additionally, this is the location of the Yoo Sushi bar, serving the best sections of the fish for sushi, sashimi and tempura. The Bellini Lounge is a great place for cocktail receptions, and small events.

THE HARRY CIPRIANI ROOM The Harry Cipriani Room is a private dining area with its own kitchen and bar. It has approximately a 60 person seating capacity and tables can be arranged in any configuration including a single banquet table or groups of tables. It also has panoramic views of the Yas Marina and Yas Marina Circuit race track. THE CROWN PRINCE ROOM The Crown Prince Room is a fun place for the boys. It is a great private space for enjoying a cigar or reading one of the many books from the library.

It can also be used for intimate private events, comfortably seating around 20 people. It is said to be one of the personal favorites of one of the many royal dignitaries who visit Cipriani Yas Island, thus earning its royal name in homage to our honored guests. THE VENETIAN ROOM The Venetian Room is a special sectioned area of the restaurant. Sliding wood and glass doors partition the room from the main part of the restaurant. It seats around 60 people and can be made into any dining configuration. It is a great space for parties, and corporate events or presentations. The exterior glass doors can also be opened to give full exposure and private access to the Terrace. THE TERRACE The Terrace at Cipriani Yas Island is romantic and majestic. It overlooks the entire Yas Marina with its magnificent yachts and the Yas Marina Circuit. Being perched over the marina water amid the night sky combined with the Cipriani atmosphere, guests oen find themselves swept away by this section of the restaurant. The Terrace seats around 130 people and can also be booked for private events. hp://ciprianiyasisland.com

A MARRIAGE OF INNOVATION AND CRAFTSMANSHIP

AERO SYSTEM SPEAKERS BY LALIQUE A marriage of innovation and crasmanship, born from a meeting between Silvio Denz, CEO of the prestigious house of Lalique, and Jean Michel Jarre, the genius of electronic music. Two worlds, which on the surface seem to be completely opposite of each other, have come together in their quest for excellence.

www.luxnews.co LUXURY REDEFINED

world luxury | WEEKLY | Issue 11 |

To further their pursuit for innovation, these two men have combined their values and talents. Together, they have created an object that combines their expertise: the AeroSystem One® by Lalique. In one respect, Jean Michel Jarre created the Aerosystem One® for Jarre Technologies, as the embodiment of a unique experience known for its unbeatable sound quality. In the other respect, Lalique cultivates its tradition of excellence and innovation by seeking new forms in new worlds. From these two worlds, the Aerosystem One® by Lalique was born, a speaker with extraordinary acoustic qualities, enhanced by crystal.

| 126 |

AEROSYSTEM SPEAKERS BY LALIQUE Lalique crystal, which decorates this speaker, reveals sparkling jets of water which emerge from the intriguing Masque de Femme, an iconic motif of this prestigious crystal house. This Art-Deco style mask reveals the face of a mysterious woman, with subtle features, surrounded by aquatic wildlife. Like a fingerprint, the face seems perfectly captured in the crystal. To create this piece of work, 13 master glassblowers blow, cut and polish crystal with their expert hands into a design that is so emblematic of Lalique. The artisans from Lalique have managed to enhance and illuminate the speaker created by Jean Michel Jarre and to raise it to the rank of a true piece of contemporary art. www.lalique.com/en/art/designers/jarretechnologies-by-lalique

The Architect

Facilities

Kyle Phillips is a name that has become synonymous with great Links Golf Course architecture around the globe and his designs for Yas Links Abu Dhabi will only serve to enhance that reputation. With more than twenty five (25) years design experience across the world, he has earned a reputation for developing creative design solutions in response to a variety of environmental and planning issues. Nowhere has this dedication to tradition been beer exemplified than the first true Links course in the UAE.

While the Yas Links course has been designed to improve your enjoyment of the game, the Clubhouse boasts facilities that will improve your lifestyle.

Other examples of Kyle Phillips design philosophy include The Gove, London, UK, Dundonald – Loch Lomond Golf Club, Troon, and Kingsbarns Golf Links, St. Andrews. "History may well come to regard Phillips as the inspiration for the 'natural' school of golf course architecture in that his creations give the impression that they have been laying dormant for centuries just waiting to be discovered." - Golf Management Europe

itself with any other currently available super car. Super light and with incredible power, the M600 boasts an impressive power to weight ratio of 542bhp per tonne, but that is only half the story, the rest is the stuff of legend... The Noble M600 delivers the ultimate driver reward with a rush of adrenalin.

e M600 ETHOS We believe that many super car manufacturers place too much emphasis on driver assistance, which, in our view, negates driver reward. Rather than rely on electronic assistance our back to basics approach concentrates on the more analogue qualities of design.

By utilising a principle of pure engineering integrity from the chassis up we ensure that the driving experience is an honest reection of the drivers skill, puî…&#x;ing you, the driver, back in control. Put simply, the Noble M600 is for those who love to drive.

THE NEW 911 TARGA 4S

Yet again, everything comes back into play. It’s about a new benchmark. A sports car that has only ever existed once in this form. That has been a source of fascination for generations. And is firmly anchored in our heart and soul. It’s about the future of the 911. We are always looking forward. Not sideways, never back. We don’t want to rest on the laurels of our past, no maer how illustrious it may be. All the racing victories. The dreams. Our fans. Thousands of ideas. We hold them in our hearts.

| 146 |

But we start from scratch. And we will give everything we’ve got. We will go on the aack, to get even beer. And we will fight, to defend our

lead. With one single goal: to create the next 911, one that can do more, deliver more and consume less than ever before. A sports car as beautiful now as it was on day one. That is our tradition. And our future. We will give it our all. For the best 911 of all times: the new 911. At Porsche, there are no conventions. Forbidding free thought? That’s forbidden. The only thing that maers is this question: how can we become even beer? Let’s put it another way: can we redefine the limits of engineering? Can we reconcile apparent contradictions? Yes, we can. With Intelligent Performance.


LUXURY CARS

EVER AHEAD The new 911 answers questions about the future of the sports car with a quantum leap in performance. By reducing fuel consumption, but not by suppressing emotions. By following a principle that has already changed everything once before: in 1974, with the ďŹ rst 911 Turbo. Developed completely from scratch, the sixcylinder twin-turbo engines of the 911 Carrera and Targa 4 models with a displacement of 3.0 litres embrace this principle and perfect it in a forwardlooking way.

The stand-out qualities of the new twinturbo engines are their extraordinarily direct responsiveness and wide torque plateau, reached early in the low end of the rpm band. Combined with the high rev limit – and the legendary sound of a 911 six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine. In short: excellent performance that feeds back to the driver in an instant. www.porsche.com/usa/models/911/911-targa4s/
