People, places and things on our hot list this week.

Prepare for the summer in Italian style and save money. What's not to like? La Perla shop at the Souk Qaryat Al Beri next to the Shangri-La Hotel in Abu Dhabi is offering up to 55 per cent off last season's swimwear. We picked up two La Perla bikinis (one for Fridays and the other for Saturdays, of course) for little more than Dh1,000, a saving of Dh1,172. The offer is also on at Al Khalidya and Al Whada Malls in Abu Dhabi. Look out, beach... La Perla, Souk Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi, 04 321 4406;
