Fantinis Italian Restaurant

Fantinis Italian Restaurant

The British have always been renowned as adventurers, and now Mick and Shirley Hills can be added to this long list. They have opened a fantastic Italian restaurant located in the Palm Beach Piazza, Sahl Haseesh right next to the swimming pool, Fantinis Italian restaurant.

Friendly and inviting this quaint little corner of Italy, right here in Sahl Haseesh is waiting to welcome you; the cuisine is simple but tasty full of fresh Italian flavours, everything you love about Mediterranean food and healthy eating as well. Freshly prepared pasta, pizza’s made in an authentic pizza oven and some other house speciality including seafood and meat dishes. Fantinis menu was created by their old friend, Gino Fantini, in his old school house in Suffolk were he had retired too. Gino was trained in some of Europe's top hotels before coming to England in the mid-sixties; he then owned a number of restaurants in London. In honour of this old friend the restaurant was duly named.

Family dining during the day and for those romantic evenings this is the ideal spot. The vista from the shaded sun terrace is spectacular and overlooks the bay of Sahl Haseesh, the air-conditioned interior has been decorated with fantastic murals of the Italian countryside and the walls are enriched with the twisted vines of the grape.

Anyone mentioning the Spot Local advertisement will receive 10% discount on their meal.

City Gets New Flights to Hotspot in Egypt

Flights to Hotspot in Egypt

Flights to Hotspot in Egypt

SCOTS budget airline flyglobespan is launching flights between Glasgow and the Egyptian resort of Hurghada. Tickets are now on sale for flights, which start in early November, with fares costing from pounds-120 one-way. The airline operates weekly flights between Glasgow and the popular resort of Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt.

Flyglobespan chairman Tom Dalrymple said: "We are delighted to be launching another direct flight from Scotland to Egypt. "The success of the Sharm el Sheikh - which began as a winter destination only, but proved so popular it soon became one of our year-round destinations - was definitely a contributing factor in this decision.

"I'm confident that Hurghada, with its sandy beaches, great climate and world-class hotels, will be a great success, attracting a mix of families, couples and dive enthusiasts."

Gordon Dewar, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: "Egypt is proving increasingly popular with Scottish holidaymakers. "Its culture, history and landscape make it a quite unique holiday experience, and visitor numbers have been growing consistently."

Rick Green, flyglobespan chief executive, said: "Our summer programme is well ahead of budgets and I have every confidence that our winter programme will prove to be just as successful."

Inefficient ambulance response plagues North Coast vacations

News
 

Helicopter, air ambulance, air medical care

Helicopter, air ambulance, air medical care

The lack of well-equipped hospitals, emergency rooms and ambulances has always been a rising concern among Egyptians, especially on highways and at holiday destinations such as the North Coast. People usually choose to cut their vacation and go back to Cairo or Alexandria when they want to see a doctor. But the issue poses a particular challenge when a car accident, or a similar emergency, takes place and the patients have to wait for hours, which sometimes costs them their lives.

The Ministry of Health, however, says it has taken new measures to improve ambulances’ response this year. Starting from July 22 this year, 50 new ambulances are now spread in stations throughout the Cairo-Alexandria Highway, Wadi El-Natroun Highway and North Coast Highway, noted Sultan.

These are 50 out of 1,213 ambulances to be stationed throughout this year in different parts of the country, mainly highways, such as the Ain Sokhna and Sharm El-Sheikh Highways. “They are highly equipped with the latest medical technology and will arrive at the scene of an accident within eight to 10 minutes after they are contacted,” he added.

In addition, Minister of Health Hatem El-Gabaly has recently announced the launch of helicopter ambulances for the first time in Egypt. There are currently two of them, the first located in Cairo, available for highways and ring-roads in Cairo, Giza, Qalioubiya, Sixth of October and Helwan. The second is in Suez and will be available for highways leading from Cairo to Ain Sokhna, Hurghada, Marsa Alam and Sharm El-Sheikh.

Veil shed for bikini on Egypt's women-only beaches

Egypt's Women only beaches

Egypt's Women only beaches

Welcome to "La Femme", French for "The Woman", in the posh resort of Marina, where women can lounge on sunbeds, tan, join in a daily belly-dance contest or breastfeed their babies shielded by barriers of palm tree branches from the prying eyes of men.

The branches even stretch into the Mediterranean sea to give maximum shelter to the women, who have faced the constraints of growing conservatism in this mostly Muslim country.

"Sometimes I turn around and look behind to make sure there are no men. And, thank God, there aren't any," said Safa, a Cairo resident in her 60s, who enjoys the privacy of La Femme beach club.

"It is 'haram' (forbidden in Islam) to strut around in front of men in a swimsuit," she said, as she basked in the sun. "It is an excellent idea to have a beach reserved for women only."

Most of the women at the beach are upper-class like Safa, who can afford to dish out 14 dollars (nine euros) on weekdays and 16 dollars on the weekend for the privilege of entering the gated beach club to preserve their modesty.

Celebrating

Celebrating

We would like to invite you all to join us in celebrating this happy occasion. We will stay true to our tradition; this year again we will experiment with a medley of musical styles and artists from different scenes, with an added slight twist of humour.

The highlight of our event is musician, singer, and songwriter “TERRYMAN” from New York City—now a permanent dweller in Amsterdam’s musical scene. Terry has performed and hung out with many legends of the past few decades, such as John Lennon, Debbie Harry, The Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Miles Davis, and we are very delighted to have him perform on The Club House stage.

Backing Terry are a few of Cairo’s most talented musicians and of course our very own saxophonist Craig Hume from The UK.

so… Come to The Club House….

10 Tips to Help Get Kids Back on Schedules

Parents & Kids

Night a sleep

Sleep at night

1) Start early. Don't wait until school opens to modify your child's sleep routine.

2) Make incremental changes. Move wake-up times back by 15 minutes until you reach the ideal time for your child's school district. You can't force children to sleep, but you can enforce wake-up times and adjust the bedtime accordingly.

3) Discourage daytime naps. Two- or three-hour naps interfere with a good night's sleep. Limit naps to 20 minutes.

4) Encourage earlier exercise. It helps burn off steam during the day, but evening exercise can keep children awake later.

5) Stick to regular breakfast and dinner times. Make sure children have a proper breakfast. Children who go to bed late often wake up too late for a good breakfast, further compromising morning classroom performance.

6) Limit bedtime television viewing. A television in the bedroom is bad, as it fosters the concept of the bedroom for entertainment rather than sleeping.

7) Create a restful environment. Your child's room should be dark, quiet and comfortable.

8) Avoid large meals before bedtime. A light and healthy snack is OK.

9)Talk to the child about any sleep problems. They could stem from problems with bullies or stress at school.

10) Be a good role model. Parents should go to bed and get up at reasonable times, too.

10 Tips For An Olympic Body

Body and soul

Olympic Body

Olympic Body

When the 2008 Olympic Games open in Beijing, millions will be marveling at all the athletes' bodies. Muscled legs, backs, abs, and arms - sure signs of the Olympic body, carefully sculpted for power, speed, and endurance.
But what does it take to get that Olympic body? And could the average Joe (or Joelle) ever hope to look like an Olympic athlete?

1. Know your body type.
Some of us are built for speed, some for endurance, says Callan. Figuring out what feels natural -- and what you're best at -- will help you determine which type of exercise will work for you.

2. Determine your goals.
You're bound to be better at some kinds of physical events than others, so choose one or two that feel natural and that you enjoy. You'll be much more likely to stick with it -- and see success.

3. Eat healthfully
Brooke Bennett, three-time Olympic gold medalist in the 1996 and 2000 Olympics -- and the current world record holder for the 800-meter freestyle swim -- says that diet should be the first focus for anyone hoping to improve physical well-being.

4. Eat frequently
with a mixture of protein and carbohydrates at every meal. Your body needs a steady supply of fuel if it's going to function at maximum efficiency. Eating frequently also increases your body's metabolism, which means it will burn more calories.

5. Watch the mirror, not the scale.
"If your clothes fit great and you like the way you look in the mirror, does it matter what the scale says?"
