Thanks XPClone... I was hoping for a 2 bedroom apartment but it appears that a place in Marina would be out of my budget. What are some other preferred areas? My office will be in the Emirates Towers so I wouldn't mind some place closeby. If I can find a place in a convenient location, then perhaps ...

Your best option is probably finding a hotel apartment (or serviced apartment). These apartments are normally furnished with cleaning services, and you can rent them on a monthly basis thus giving you flexibility. I have searched all over the Marina area and haven't found anything decent below 100K,...

you will probably get by if you stay in Bur Dubai or Deira within walking distance from your work... that way you won't need a car and can get a variety of cheap food in the area.

it will be tight but if you budget well perhaps it'll be okay.

good luck!

The soup noodles in China Sea (Deira) is good... I've lived and travelled extensively in China and I can tell you that their noodles are very authentic indeed.

You can get Chinese newspapers in that restaurant, as well as from those grocery stores in Deira.

why would you quit one month before the bonus payout?? it really depends on what was originally agreed in your employment contract, but normally unless you have some bargaining chips, it is likely that your resignation implies forgoing your bonuses.
