Where do you see yourself ten years from now??? Still here (or wherever you are reading this from), in another country?? back 'home'?

At the moment, i can't imagine living anywhere but here cos I love it, and I defo defo don't want to go back to the UK. Would love a stint in Hong Kong, my brother lives there and it's fab...but, who knows.

What about you BC??

I am like you, I would imagine we will still be here or maybe another Emirate. I can't see me going to work either. I think that is all behind me. Might develop the DWC into something bigger and better though.

6 years ago when we arrive in Doha, we plan 10 years, nearly finish our 6th now, and so far we love it. I guess we will still be here 10 years later under presents circumstances.

MM, i like HK or Singapore too. It is nice to live there when you have money ... If you don't then you doomed

I can't stand the weather in Singapore.

Hong Kong - well put it this way - Dubai rents pale in comparison. But I loved it - accommodation was provided by the employer then!

Lived there for 2 years ... my impression everything there is very high speed. I don't mix much with another expats since i am working ... my husband working 12 hrs a day. We never have the same day off.

Don't think the place would be good place to raise family.

But again if the husband can earn top $$$ there ... why not? Last time i read in Singapore local paper, they are shortage of banker.

I rather to have Singapore weather than Qatar if you can choose. But then again beggers can not be choosers.

It's beyond shocking. I know people getting paid 25k plus who couldn't spot a good PR opportunity if it smacked them in the nuts.
