Hi Katie - I recommend you look on the KHDA site for recommendations of schools. Please choose either a very good or outstanding school to be sure of a good choice. Best of luck.

Hi - I am planning to buy my husband an Amazon Alexa for his birthday this week. But I have heard that Alexa bought in UAE does not have all the functionality that it does in the UK. Is this true? Thanks

I haven't been but you book it through the Vox website (or, I assume, in person). I'd like to go but there is a total lack of information about it on their website. Every other 'experience' has page telling you about it but not Theatre by Rhodes. No info, no menu, nothing. Yes I agree - it is really badly advertised.

My boys go to school there. It has improved substantially over the past year (this is their second year in the school- they are in Year 9). They had a lot of teething problems when they first opened but there is a marked improvement this year. My boys have excellent teachers for Maths, English, Humanities and Science - so this helps. What year are you looking at? AM

Hi - I want to employ a maid and driver couple. Problem is they were made redundant by their current employer but it seems he has done a runner from Dubai and is refusing to pay end of service or cancel their work visas. My question is - can they cancel their work visa themselves? And if so how? Any help would be much appreciated

All, My husband and I both work full time and I have recently been asked to take on a new project which means I will be traveling a lot for the next 6-12 months. Does anyone know if you can get a maid who can do more than the basic activities of cleaning and cooking. I appreciate we will need to pay more but are happy to do so as we need a lot of help with running our lives at the moment :)

It sounds very high! If the property is yours then look at Jim'll fix it on a as need basis. If it is under a landlord they should be responsible not you. If the property is new then check the builders’ warranty. Thanks - we are renting so will check with landlord

We live in a large 6 bed villa in Jumeirah Golf Estates. We have received a quote for a 12 month preventative maintenance contract for AED12000. Does this seem reasonable?

Hi I live on Lime Tree valley too. I have two boys aged 12. We have not found any local parks yet - let me know if you do. The club house will open end of Oct - the temporary one that is there is good too though. Nice for a bite to eat and a glass of wine on the weekend.

Hi - I recently moved here from the UK and would love to access some of the UK TV channels. I have tried ITV Player but that doesn't seem to work here. I heard you can do something with Sky via your computer but do not know what to do and if it is legal. Any advice? Thanks

I find it very strange that there are posters here who says you must contact the police over one text message! Seriously? This guy is just trying his luck by asking for a loan. It is wrong and you can choose to just ignore the text and go on with your life like a normal adult. If he texts again then tell him clearly not to text you about money or anything else for that matter. edited by Asti on 30/09/2014 Yep get it and believe me I do live life like a normal adult - however before living here I have lived in countries where this kind of approach was and is quite dangerous and have experience to prove it. Was simply checking the temperature of the water here for such incidences and I am now clear

Not sure why it has spooked me - never been in this situation before where someone who does not know me has asked for money - and knows where I live ......... I could be over reacting......

All, I feel like an absolute idiot but last week I sent a text to a taxi driver who had enquired about a drivers job with my family. I told him that we weren't looking for a driver which he replied politely to and that was that. Last night I got a text from him asking me to lend him 5000dhs. This has spooked me and I wonder if any of you have experienced something similar and should I be concerned enough to go to the police (or am I totally over reacting). My fear is that this guy knows where I live and my husband travels lot.
