arnie,

do you have the specifics on where the EEC is? I have been driving around with just my US licence in my pocket... that will do me little good if I get pulled over. Is it really Dhs 300 to get a local DL? that would make me sad.

Thanks!

Looks like I should get a UAE DL. 150dhs is better that 300

boost,

you should not be too bothered by the proxy that does all the censoring. I have only hit a few blocked sites. I hear they are expanding its scope into the media and internet cities though so soon there will be no place to go and get around said proxy. oh well.

Match Point

Not a full review... just a very high recomendation. This is great work by Woody Allen.

Painful to watch at times in the same way as Closer but with charaters you are more apt to root for.

Definitely worth the time and effort to get to MoE to see it on the one screen playing it in Dubai.

Fyaz, for the self proclaimed laziest man you are doing a bang-up job of getting something together. I will offer my help for anything you need. I may even be able to drive someone to the event.

I wish I had found that site before I moved here... that would have been a better way to explain it than "No, its not Saudi." Thanks for the link.

Boston banned smoking in the same way... it makes the bars a lot nicer to go to and you don't have to throw your clothes away after a night out because they have trapped so much smoke. Biggest drawback is for little local bars. People stop going, or come for fewer drinks because they have to leave o...

I am the opposite... watch something with tragic relationships and everything in my life looks so much cleaner and easier.

yshimy,

go for the Tiger Micca. I took a leap on a red VW back home with the same 'will I still like this in a year?' I am still a fan, 3 years later. I think you will find the same with the tiger over the black... and it won't show the dust as bad.
