Default Hi, im new, how and who r u?

Hello Everyone,

I just joined up and wanna share the luv. Im saas, moved to Dubai 2 yrs ago and setted up a rental company hiring cranes, excavators, shovels, etc etc etc. Currently, im staying in Marina and Sharjah, here n there depending on work. To be honest i havent really chilled out since ive shipped out here with my head crushed against the work load like there's no tomorrow. Now the recessions kicking me up the backside so im finding plenty of time to chill.

soooo..How is everyone else, who is everyone else and what does everyone else do???

Hi saas, I wouldn't hold my breath if you are looking to get in with the clique on here! There are a few friendly folk on this board but the majority wont give you the time of day mate, a lot of them here have a fear of incomers, (stranger danger), think Royston Vasey in cyberspace

oh ffs...here we go again...
it's like any group of people that have 'known' each other for a while...
everybody was new at some point...some people 'fit in' others don't for various reasons...that doesn't mean to say that the people are a clique.
It's not like you will belong to any random group of people in real life either is it...
arrgghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I could tell you but I would have to shoot you afterwards.

Welcome to BE saas - do you think you will be able to weather the storm in Dubai or are you thinking about moving on?

Hi Saas, Dan, and everyone else,

Ok I seriously don't get the "in" jokes and I fear they need a lot of explaining!

And in answer to your questions, I'm very well ta, I'm Cat and I'm a lingerie designer, well actually in the UK I'm self employed as a fashion stylist and I do design consultancy as well, but i'm moving out to Dubai in Sept to work full time for one of my clients- 4 year contract, so will be a full time lingerie designer- the idea of working 9 hour days is heavenly!

Cat
