May the Holy Month of Ramadan be full of peace, love and joy for you and your loved ones. In this issue we share as much about the Holy Month of Ramadan as possible, including some of the many Iftars residents can attend with friends and family around the emirate. From pages 17 through to 47 you will see details on over 110 different options, showing once again that Dubai has something for everyone. Finding a job that makes a difference to someone else is very fulfilling, and in this issue we speak with a Dubai resident who does exactly that with just one phone call. Priya Boney is the person tasked with calling the lucky winners of the weekly Mahzooz draw, to tell them they have won a life changing about of money. Get her insight in the role pages 71 to 74. At the end of Ramadan we have Eid Al Fitr, a time for celebrating with friends and family over a few days holiday, and giving gifts to loved ones. With so many things to choose from, see our selection of what you can find for those difficult to choose for people on pages 56 and 57. A few days break for Eid Al Fitr this year is likely to fall over a long weekend and gives the chance for some time out on a staycation in the UAE. On pages 58 to 61 we look at some of the places and packages you can just jump in the car to go to. Enjoy the issue and have a blessed Ramadan.
