You brought up a good point, it's hard to find a bar without loud music where you can actually talk to your mates! If you're into the clubbing scene then check out Trilogy at the Madinat, also the MIX and whoooohoooo IBI (was the Terminal) is now back in business. Longs Bar, Rock Bottoms, Jimi Dix a...

Dubai is filled with gorgeous girls from all over the world! Think your friend must have a specific taste in women. Personally from what I've seen of Lebanese women they have plastic surgery as soon as humanly possible, and the make-up is slapped on with a trowl and I really don't know who finds tha...

Substandard Customer Service

Is it just me does there appear to be a major short falling in customer service in Dubai? The city brands itself as a shopping heaven, but the people working in them sometimes just don't seem to have a clue, I find this particularly annoying in electrical stores where the staff appear to know nothin...

Just a question about the ipod, when you go and look at one of these things, do you ask about "The Battery Problem"? If you look at the ipod it's a sealed unit with no way to replace the recharchable battery once its life has run out, and people say it's good for a couple of hundred recharges and la...

Whoa peeps! Granted there are some problems with Taxi's around Dubai but let me put a new light on it. Alot of the drivers are fresh in the country and obviously have not been shown routes to places, so are just as lost as many tourists and if they don't speak your language very well you have that b...

It's not always the case that the VISA sign means you can use a visa card issued in any country. The credit and debit cards in the UK, Europe and US now have extra security chips and pin codes that need to be used with a transaction, unfortunately we don't have that in the UAE yet. Sometimes it will...

Guys, Those relies were a bit harsh, one thing that bugs me is that salaries do not increase when the rents and other things go up, so peole find it harder and harder to cope. Plus there is no legislation which governs the amounts by which landlords can put rents up, and the 2 year rule has now been...

Hey! White girls are not easy I take offense to that!

Personally I think suicide bombers are the lowest of the low. To take away innocent lives is a waste and what kind of sick reward would you get for that? It's the fanatical people who brainwash week minded people into doing such things and make them believe it's for the greater good. You cannot just...

Please note, tea does not come with warm milk! or cream, cream is for coffee! White sugar is for tea, brown is for coffee. And the milk should be put in first, that's the b...

Hey Guys, With regard to dribing licences, you can probably hire a car on your EU licence, but best maybe to pick up an international driving licence. If you end up living here, you don't have to take another driving test, you just get it swapped for a UAE one, it's really easy. Yeah as said in one ...

Hey did you guys hear?

If you have an original ipod, Apple have agreed to pay out a fifty dollar voucher to everyone as compensation for the battery problem.

I don't profess to understand all that these people go through in some territories, please don't think me that naive!

We'll just have to agree to disagree, I just don't agree with it. I have no more to say on the subject.

But many of these marriages happen so fast, and the couple only meet in the presence of other family members, so how can you get to know one another.
