If you can afford to do something or be a member somewhere, then do it, good on you.

I dont feel sorry for the people here that cant afford to do the things i can. A lot of them are here because they have a better quality of life here than their original country. A lot of people however have nothing to go back for, i.e they are trapped here due to employment chances at home and their passports being locked up.

One of my ex-colleagues whos salary came in about at 2000AED per month, has built himself and his family a sizeable house in his country of origin- a lot bigger that my property in the UK for sure

Money is all relevant. I work for a global company with a sizeable office in Dubai. I took a package that was comparable to what i earn in the offshore industry in the UK. It does cause a lot of friction as i know i double my managers salary. But the point is, i would not work for a certain level, neither would others.

And if that level dictates that i can join a golf club or a beach club or both then good on me.

Forgive me as a new guy to this site, but It seems to me that there are people on here that really go out of their way to feel sorry for the 'less well off' people (well thats what they see them as) These 'less well off' people, are probibly quite content with their lot as they know no different and would feel totally out of sorts gabbing on with the wannabees at Barasti's or discussing the best spa and nail salon in Lime tree cafe with the false and hideously boring Jumeriah Jane types anyway (darling).

Now what really gets on my wick is the women who bring their slave. sorry maid to spinneys to push the trolley and look after her kids while she prances around selecting moisturisers and toners for her leather skin like she owns the place. Arrogant and Disgusting. Saw one yesterday actually. She was as common as muck as well, cant wait till her hubby has to move back to Redcar or whereever they came from.

People like that really annoy me more than people who join clubs cause they can afford it.

in my opinion of course

:/ some people completely miss the point here... it doesnt matter where youre from, what race you are or how much money you have. at the end of the day, we ALL lose out on what was once a nice, relaxing, free place we could just chill and enjoy the little free time we have.

I get your point totally. I do sometimes like to go down to the beach and chill when i have a moment (like today)

My sympathy does extend to the people who see/saw the beach as a wee retreat from a stressfull city life.

(and to take photo's of women and children in bikini's of course)

I have been refraining from making comments about this (I know not like me but ....) I would like to know what percentage of the "under-priviledged" are at the public beach to enjoy the sea and sand and what percentage are there to perv

money is not the issue here for me. on principle, i wouldnt go (too often anyway ) it would completely ruin the whole thing for me. how many of us would pay for entrance to our local public park back in the uk?
