whose stupid enough to run a red light by the tram. theres clear road markings so your friend isnt exactly a great driver if this is the case. anyway, head to either barsha or deira traffic dept and speak to one of the staff there to clarify what can be done to prevent a year long ban
I think it is just common courtesy for people to pick up after their dogs. It just makes the public spaces more enjoyable for EVERYONE. if you don't clean up after your dog then you most probably deserve to be reported. But please keep it civil - no need to make a big scene and freak out, from either sides.
I did the calculations end of last year and came to the conclusion that you need at least 13,000Dh to live a basic lifestyle with some luxuries. And with luxuries I mean a car, a cellphone contract, internet at home and going out maybe once or twice a month with your friends. I used rent from Remraam / Sports City and also had in my budget that I still send money home every month as well. I agree with Ranstone - don't rely purely on commission. It isn't guaranteed that you'll be getting it every month and you don't want to get use to a lifestyle with a higher salary and then start falling short because sales are slow. Also keep in mind that it is expensive moving to Dubai. There are a lot of hidden costs that you don't think about: deposit for an apartment, having to pay 3 months rent in advance, then only getting to furnishing it, getting a car, a phone contract. We were caught off-guard with just how expensive it would be to move here but with all of that said, if I had to do it all over again, I would! I would do things a bit differently, but I don't regret moving here one bit.
My best friend wants to move to Dubai, but she'd like to first test the waters. So she asked me if she could come and stay by me for a month.... I am really looking forward to having her visit, but I am afraid we might want to murder each other at the end of the month! What to do?
The first time I walked into Carrefour after arriving in Dubai I got so overwhelmed that I almost started crying! I just turned around and left... My advice would be to mentally prepare yourself that you won't find most of your beloved products from back home. And if you're moving to a country with a new language you most probably won't understand what most of the products are.
