Xpat Community Ezine / Thursday 11 February 2016
Dear Member, first for your interest this week is a great new XpatLoop Interview.

Mel Horwitch, Dean of CEU Business School. Example Q&A’s: CEU Business School is moving from Buda to Pest. What are the benefits to students? ...Strategically, the most important factor is that there will be a great café. Our students can go down, camp out, talk, study and generally have a good time. It’s an example of what I call ‘managing by cappuccino’ - a critical and sophisticated tool of modern management...  If someone wrote a biography about you, what would the title be? Good and difficult question - maybe something about helping others, like ‘Nurturing Surprises - Bringing Out the Unexpected Best’.  To read the full interview just click here.

Now here's hoping you like what's included for you below. 
Yours sincerely with kind regards, Stephen@XpatLoop.com
Mangalica Festival Budapest, 12 - 14 February

Entry is free, so if you fancy a taste of a pig that came close to extinction just a few decades ago, pop along for a bite of magnificent mangalica meat - said to be tastier and healthier than regular pork. As you may know, this festival is named after a delicious furry pig that's indigenous to Hungary, this year the event is held again at Szabadság tér in downtown Budapest, between 12 - 14 February. more »

This is a retrospection intertwined with our present. The performance is based on Mussorgsky’ s Pictures of an Exchibition. The past gets rephrased through today’s senses, while we plunge into the river of time looking for our roots we arrive at the present. more »

Restaurant Review: A Tasty Land Of Plenty At Kánaán In Budapest
Restaurant Review: A Tasty Land Of Plenty At Kánaán In BudapestOur goal with these reviews is to show all many faces of the Budapest dining scene, ranging from street food to upscale, and others in between inc the latest hip eats. We are not going to bash restaurants here, if they fail to deliver the quality we expect then those restaurants will simply not be featured. You see it's all about good food, quality drinks and fun you can have when you are indulging in both of them in a good venue. My first article will introduce a good old Hungarian restaurant in the 13th district, as great restaurants like this - which have been around for ages - are not getting nearly enough praise nowadays. more »

Xpat Review: iPhone 6s The Right Choice For An Expat
Xpat Review: iPhone 6s The Right Choice For An ExpatWe recently had the chance to take the Apple flagship smartphone, the iPhone 6s on a test ride Thanks to the guys at VIP-Phone. As an expat, you are often running around Budapest or the countryside and might lack the time to be patient with a slow smartphone, but the iPhone 6s is clearly not one of those, as it is sold with 2GB of RAM that is coupled with Apple’s well-known processing unit beast, the 64-bit A9. more »
Eger-Szekszárd Bikavér Duel, Corinthia Budapest, 26 February
Eger-Szekszárd Bikavér Duel, Corinthia Budapest, 26 FebruaryDifferent characters of Bikavér (Bull’s Blood) cuvée wines made in Eger and Szekszárd, are originated in the terroir, since Eger belongs rather to a northern type wine region, while Szekszárd to a southern one. Their common feature is, however, that red cuvée wines of both wine regions are based on Kékfrankos variety. Winelovers have now the great opportunity to check its effect on the Bikavér wines at Eger-Szekszárd Bikavér Párbaj (Eger-Szekszárd Bull’s Blood Duel) wine tasting event organised in Budapest. more »
