Where do you live?
I live in Heaven with three heavenly furry angels (my cats Carina, Orion & Maya)

Best childhood memory?
At my grandfather’s orange orchard in Morphou. It was a beautiful place with the river running next to it and there, we were allowed to play with full freedom and pick fruit from the trees.

Most frequented restaurant and absolute favourite dish?
I prefer to be more adventurous than sticking to one place all the time. The same goes for dishes, I like to sample different dishes from cuisines all over the world.

Profile: Dinos Tellalis

Former music teacher and meditation leader is a true child of the 60s finds THEO PANAYIDES

 

“I’m a child of the 60s,” says Dinos Tellalis. “I was there,” he explains, ‘there’ being North London circa 1968. “I went to a discotheque and [Jimi] Hendrix was sitting next to me, at the bar. I was at parties with the Small Faces and Rod Stewart – these were people I was hanging out with. I chose not to go down that road, because I didn’t like the scene. I didn’t like the way the girls were treated. I didn’t like the macho image. I didn’t like the high heels, I didn’t like the fashion, I didn’t like the superficiality of that. Which took me on another path, which eventually took me to India to search for – you know…”

Film review: Five-year engagement**

A succession of skits based around a loose central theme, The Five-Year Engagement marks a new high of sorts for the Judd Apatow Movie (Mr Apatow is the producer), a genre that’s taken over American comedy – and not just comedy; The Avengers shows a lot of its influence – in recent years. These comedies tend to be rambling, discursive, overlong (Knocked Up: 129 minutes; Funny People: 146 minutes) and self-indulgent, constantly getting sidetracked from their main plot – which is why it’s handy that, in Five-Year Engagement, getting sidetracked is the main plot. Tom (Jason Segel) and Violet (Emily Blunt) keep intending to get married (they’re already engaged, hence the title) but don’t actually go through with it.

Restaurant review: A Taste of India, Ayia Napa

With the vast amount of British tourists that visit Ayia Napa, you would expect the town to boast its own ‘Curry Mile’ or equivalent to satisfy the army of hungry clubbers before they hit the dance floors – but, for some inexplicable reason, there have only ever been a few Indian restaurants operating in the resort.
Kebabs, Chinese take-aways and burger bars have always been the big winners, with Indian cuisine, it’s probably fair to say, being something of an unknown quantity in this area.
Except The Raj in Protaras, the only other restaurant here which has been serving curries and popadoms for over a decade is the Taste of India, sitting just opposite the popular main square, slap bang in the neon-lit sprawl of the resort.

Bar review: Amante, Ayia Napa

While Ayia Napa’s nightlife has become famous for its strip of bars and clubs offering cheap cocktails and a unique atmosphere that cannot be found anywhere else on the island, a new bar/club on the scene is giving a whole new dimension to the popular tourist destination.
On June 1, Amante opened its doors to its new all-day restro-club just on the outskirts of Ayia Napa that will be running right through until the end of September. Set directly in front of the sea, Amante offers a new vibe with its outside lounge area where you can relax and take in the sun with a cocktail or frappe from 10am.

MPs approve CY €15m cash boost

 

THE House Plenum yesterday unanimously approved €31.33 million to increase ailing state carrier Cyprus Airways’ (CY) share capital, adding, however, an amendment whereby the airline will receive €15 million now and the rest once the majority of its board is altered and it presents a feasible restructuring plan.

The amendment, which provides for the remaining €16.33 million to be given in October once the new plan is complete, was passed with just 17 votes against – from ruling party AKEL – and 31 in favour.

According to House Finance Committee chairman Nicolas Papadopoulos, the government still has to request the approval of the European Commission to increase the airline’s share capital.

Our View: Bullish BoC chief should have been reined in far earlier

THE RESIGNATION of the CEO of the Bank of Cyprus, Andreas Eliades, on Tuesday, could not have come as a surprise to anyone. Someone had to take responsibility for turning the island’s biggest and healthiest financial institution into a fast-contracting entity, in need of state assistance in order to stay in business. The bank’s share price has plummeted from €5 three years ago to 25 cents and it has requested about €500 million from the state to meet its re-capitalisation target.
