Happy Weekend people!
For the Art Lovers:

Get hooked onto their discussions and get to know more about the rich historical background of Nepalese culture and the significance that lies behind it.
For the Movie Buffs :
What: Watch Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
Where: Cinemas around the city
When: Over the weekend
The fifth installment in the Mission Impossible franchise, Rogue Nation is without a doubt the best since Ghost Protocol. In this movie we follow Ethan Hunt, played by Tom Cruz, who goes rogue to track down the mastermind of a secret organization of known as The Syndicate. This movie has all the making of a mega summer blockbuster. The story hasn’t been this captivating and personal since the original. The action is almost non-stop as we travel to various exotic locations throughout the globe. The acting is top notch. The movie has a perfect blend of action, thriller, suspense and comedy. This movie probably has the best bike chase scene I’ve ever seen which itself takes place after a heart pounding car chase. They say that a movie is just as good as its villain. It really feels like Ethan Hunt has found his match in this one. The supporting actors do their job as usual. Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and Ving Rhames bring the best out of the movie. The female lead was beautiful as she was deadly. I loved this movie and can’t stress enough how much I’d suggest you to watch it in the cinema hall.
For the Sports Enthusiasts:
What: Arsenal Vs Liverpool
When: Tuesday, 25 August, 12:15am
Where: Star Sports 4
Although way past the weekend, this is definitely something none of you should miss. Arsenal and Liverpool have had some epic encounters in the premier league era. The two giants of English football are set to lock horns this week again, under the floodlights at the Emirates Stadium for another mouth watering match. The team from the Mersey-side has started the season on a high note with two straight wins while maintaining 100% clean sheet. Arsenal too got off to the mark with single goal win against Palace. Will the Reds hand Arsenal another straight home loss or will the gunners come blazing and snatch the 3 points? Make sure to stuff your fridge with beers and munchies because the weekend may be over but football hasn’t!
For Music Lovers:
