Talking Re: Newbies....Introduce yourselves to the ME crowd

[QUOTE=Bob]Just thought it would be nice for newbies to go introduce yourselves to folks here



OK BOSS BOB !



British Expat living permanently and working in Kuwait since 2000.
I work in Qibla - Kuwait City, near the Stock Exchange on the panoramic Arabian Gulf Road
and reside a few minutes drive along towards the 5 Star Safir Hotel.
First visit here on invitation for two weeks by the (then) Defence Minister Sheikh Salem Al-Sabah 1999.
Fluent English, Italian, French, Spanish and learning Arabic.
One of my favourite singers is Adrian Baretto - former lead of the renowned Los Paraguayos, friends 30 years.
My two favourite harpists are Paraguayan also; Francisco Yglesias and Fausto Franco. [Currently on cruise ships]
I am employed by a Kuwait Government Ministry as Head of Official English Communications; Official English Editor,
English Tutor, Foreign Governments Cultural Events Liaison and Foreign Expats Networking Organiser. [5 roles: 1 office]
I enjoy pointing expats towards solutions for their crises during transition time of settling
into a different way of life here and facing culture shock.

I miss Branston Pickle but we sometimes find it at the Sultan Centre in Salmiya, but brown sliced bread is never the same as in Britain.

I would really like to have some fresh boneless cod cutlets cooked in batter.

HEY BOSS BOB ..... did the others all fall asleep on reading this ?

not many places in Dubai now for a pint under 30dhs (yes we know about the Jebel Ali Club).

Although actually selling stella should be a crime punishable by lashes anyway - nats piss
