Remraam is also a great community that isn't too expensive.

Hi there Dezi81, I had to get some documents attested quite urgently about a month ago and a friend recommended Sajeda Toppie. Her number is: 0507959801. She was really professional, not too expensive and got my documents back to me in less than a week. I'd really recommend her.

Oh wow! That's horrible! Thank you for the heads-up. It's strange, of late I've had more and more beggars walk up to me and ask for money

That is ridiculous! It makes me sad when people treat other people like they are their slaves.

I can also recommend Dr Joy in Mirdif - I went there the other day and they really impressed me!

Hi anu_d_18, You should try and join the EWmum's weekly meetups - it's really fun and a good opportunity to meet new friends. I've also joined a photography group that has really meant the world to me. We meet up once a week and I have made some really great friends in the group.

Hi...curious to know...were you able to buy the thread here in Dubai, and if yes, can you pls share from where? Thanks!
I'm sure you are able to. Most salons that I've been to always prefer threading so it only makes sense that you should be able to buy the thread here as well.

Last year I threw the whole trolley cart over by deciding to fast from the First Sunday after Ramadan started! It was my first Ramadan in the country and I am thankful that I made the effort to fast with everyone. I will be fasting again this year, it is a rewarding, and fulfilling experience.

I think Dubai has actually been doing a lot to include people with disabilities. From the Dubai Safari granting them free access to the park and beaches building path ways for wheelchairs. It seems to me that Dubai is doing a lot to include people with disabilities but I guess I won't really know unless I am in that position.

I've heard 800flower is really good but I haven't used them before. I can also recommend Croutique though, one of my friends are always shopping on there.

Doobnoob, my previous car had adaptive cruise control and I felt like that in the beginning but eventually got used to it. Now I'm just spoilt and missing not having cruise control.

Depends slightly on the circumstances, if your are simply in transit then no, although you are still expected to be covered so maybe easier to have one. If you are arriving then you are expecte...
What is it like visiting Saudi Arabia? I've always wanted to go.

One of the biggest obstacles of moving here was definitely our finances. It worked out much more expensive than we initially thought it will. The things that really helped me once we got here was to contact my family frequently, at least every couple of days, but also to go out and explore the new country. I was out exploring different emirates every weekend and finding out what are fun places to go to. Making new friends also helped me a lot in adjusting to everything.

I tend to have a heavy foot so I rather drive with it on in order to avoid speeding fines. I am however quite clued up with cars so I'm sure I'd be able to handle myself if anything happens.

You can tickle me pink and call me daisy if I remember the name, but I got a gellish tube from (I know this is going to be VERY USEFUL) Spinneys or Carrefour that you apply in the corners of your cupboards. It works like a charm! When you can remember the name...

Thanks. Good ideas. Any suggestions for children that we haven't see in years so I have no idea about sizes for clothes or likes/dislikes?
Bangles and jewellery for the girls or go stop at the antique museum to get them a wooden jewellery box and a set of the DXB police model cars for the boys. That usually works with my friends and family.

I also read about that but have been there before when my mum came to visit. It is really amazing visiting there. I am really proud of some of the selfies that I got to take!

I agree with you. It makes me sad how many people decide they want a pet and then change their mind and just abandon it somewhere or makes it someone else's problem. If the dogs start becoming a hassle I usually go to security and report it there.

If you decide to get any pet, not just a dog, you need to make sure that the pet will fit into your lifestyle. She must definitely re-consider. It's going to break the dogs spirit if she gives him away. I'd definitely try and look what other options are available than giving the pup up for adoption.

When you become an expat, you need to ensure that you have a good support structure in place, from people who are also expats because unless your family and friends have been expats themselves, they won't understand what it's like.

Home is the place where I know that I can be vulnerable without being judged, pushed outside my comfort limits and just be myself. Home to me is the people you surround yourself with who accepts you for you, but always inspires you to become a better version of you.

How are you ladies faring on opening a small business? I have been looking at grocery stores and laundromats in Dubai and Sharjah but will need to do some more research first.

Hi there, I haven’t started driving yet as I think the DUBAI roads are a little scary and I think it will take me a while to get up the nerve?. Would you be able to meet in Oasis Centre or is this ...
I know how you feel! I was very intimidated to start driving in the beginning as well. it's not that bad though, once you get used to it.
