2nd Outing: Columbia Beach

If you love the sea and you can appreciate good food then we highly recommend Columbia Beach.

Yesterday Polarity Technologies Ltd and our guests from EightPoint Technologies Ltd. SEZC had an amazing evening in Limassol. A mini bus picked us up from Hilton and drove us at Columbia Beach. During the ride we played games and had a lot of fun. We arrived at Columbia Beach around 8. We had some drinks while waiting for one of Polarity’s directors, and well-known lawyer, Andrea Yordamli to arrive.

For starters we got sushi, salads and prawns kataifi. Mouthwatering! Then our main dishes arrived. The ribs with the BBQ sauce were legendary; the meat was literally melting in your mouth. We have never had anything similar before. Black Angus Beef and Veal Schnitzel were equally tasty.

At the end the waiter brought us a large fruit platter and a dessert platter (of course!). After we finished our meal we went for a walk at Limassol Marina were we had one last drink at the Yacht Resto Bar, before getting back to Nicosia.

In Polarity Technnologies Ltd we love fun. We like hanging out with interesting people from other countries, visiting new places and trying new food. Our motto is ”Work hard, Play Hard”. If  you are a hardworking team-player and this is the kind of working culture you are looking for then stay tuned.

Our Friends from Eightpoint are Here

This week Polarity Technologies Ltd has three visitors from our sister company, Eightpoint.

Cody, Ben and Jerrod travelled all the way from Cayman Islands to meet us. This is their first time in Cyprus and our aim is to help them gather the best memories. On the following days we are taking them to different areas of Cyprus, making sure they’ll get the chance to experience the Cypriot hospitality, culture and cuisine at its fullest. Beautiful landscapes, sandy beaches and amazing sunsets are all in the plan.

Yesterday was our kick-off dinner. We went at Elma & Fred, a unique ”concept store” located in the centre of Nicosia which combines food and fashion.

According to Cypriot & Proud ”Elma & Fred is indeed a concept store, a place where you can products that appeal to a general lifestyle rather than one shopping category, At Elma & Fred one can find stylish clothes for both men and women- not only known brands but young designers as well. Right next to that one can buy carefully selected Italian, gourmet food products such as handpicked biscuits, aged balsamic vinegar, excellent quality tea and teapots as well as delicious Italian nibbles. Right after the food section one arrives at the café, a Lamborghini café, restaurant and all-day bar.”

The service, the environment and the location were all excellent. We had few nice appetisers, meat & fish platters, wine, cocktails & shots. Of course we couldn’t miss the dessert, so we tried the Tiramisu and the Panna Cotta.

Why Interacting with People from a Different Culture can Improve your Creativity

In Polarity Technologies Ltd we love interacting with people from foreign cultures. We communicate on a daily basis with people from US, Asia and Europe. That’s because our sister company’s offices are located in United States and our mother company’s headquarters are located in China. As you can understand the opportunity for us to travel to other continents arises quite often. Additionally we have people from other countries visiting us every couple of weeks.

According to World Economic Forum interacting closely with people from different cultures makes us more creative. Based on a research of MIT Sloan Assistant Professor of Work and Organization Studies Jackson Lu, people who experience certain types of relationships tend to exhibit higher creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship.“Creativity is about connecting dots”. When someone enters a close relationship with a person from a different culture, they collect more dots to connect to the ones they already have. “These relationships can also enhance your cognitive flexibility, which means that not only do you have more dots, but you’re more capable of connecting them,” Jackson Lu said. “Intercultural relationships lead you to switch your cognitive frameworks, and push you outside the box.”

Cyprus: One of the Healthiest Countries in the World

Polarity Technologies Ltd was proud to find out that Cyprus is one of the most healthy countries in the world.

”It’s official, Cyprus is one of the healthiest places to live in the whole world! According to the Bloomberg Global Health Index, Cyprus is the 18th most healthy country out a massive list of 163 countries. So why is this the case? Why is Cyprus so healthy? Read on to find out…

Healthy Diet

One of the reasons why Cypriots are so healthy and have such a high life expectancy is due to the Mediterranean diet. Fresh fruit and vegetables, fish all cooked with health giving olive oil and prepared to traditional recipes that will truly make your mouth water, it’s hard not to eat healthily when you’re in Cyprus! These foods are perfectly suited to the warm climate, unlike back home where you crave stodgy junk food because you feel cold!

Sunshine

There is a lot to be said for the sun! When you’re in the sunshine, you just tend to feel happier. It relaxes you and makes you feel at one with nature. Of course sunshine also brings you vitamin D, a vitamin that many people are lacking in these days, but one that is vital for our good health.

High Healthcare Standards

Another reason why people in Cyprus are healthy, is because they get the very best healthcare. Whether it’s treatment for an illness, or simply preventative care to ensure they remain in good health, there are a wide range of very high quality healthcare services available on the island that surpass those of many other countries.

Pace of Life

When you live in Cyprus, you learn not to rush. People in other countries seem to live every moment of their lives in a mad panic. The Cypriot way is to take things slow and steady. Somehow everything still gets done, just without everyone having to rush around to do it! When you embrace this way of life, you can feel yourself relax and enjoy life more. You have time to appreciate the details in your life that can so easily be overlooked.

Many Ways to Alleviate Stress

Cyprus offers you so many ways to de-stress. Stress is so common in our modern hectic world and it’s also a massive killer. Stress can lead to some serious health conditions such as heart disease and strokes. It’s really important to find ways to lower your stress levels, and there are so many ways to do this in Cyprus! You can read a book by the pool, relax and shut your eyes for a moment on the golden sandy beaches. Join in with some water sports, or sit and watch the world go by at a beach front bar. There are endless walks with the most beautiful of views, and last but by no means least, perhaps the best way to banish stress, is to watch the spectacular Cyprus sunset.”
