Neena Rai- An artist with a flair

My favourite time of the year is back! The weather has cooled down considerably. The birds are chirping, people looking happier, and there is definite optimism in the air. We just celebrated Diwali, hoping and praying for a better and prosperous year ahead. And in November, a plethora of festivities await. There is something exciting for everyone. We have Abu Dhabi Art Fair, Eid, the Formula 1 races, the art bus, and not to mention the boating and camping season in full bloom.



A competition that gave the community a voice

When Tempo and the New York Film Academy Abu Dhabi decided to launch a film competition to celebrate UAE’s 40th anniversary, and give members of the community an opportunity to express their love and appreciation in short videos. The response was phenomenal! The event was held at Mamoura Auditorium and attended by film enthusiasts, industry experts, educationists and members of the public.

Hanoi is perhaps one of the best far eastern restaurants in the city, and for good reason. An authentic Vietnamese eatery by heart, there is no getting away from the liveliness of the place.
