Erm, I seem to have overlooked this part.

Is it a standard procedure thingy?


Grows up and show promise as a future schoolar but family circumstances like death in the family makes earning money a priority and a junior thug is born, by a show of the one quality dear to the people in charge I advance and eventually becomes a trusted bagman for a gambling syndicate.
Being in time fed up with that life I was approached by people in the gulf that wanted me here.
Eventually I got introduced to the suits and given certain retainers to be available if certain problems did arise. They did.
This brought me to the attention of Sheikh Hazza bin Zayeds organisation but they choosed to let me continue my "job" in return for cooperation.

At the end of that spell I decided to take a break from UAE and returned to Europe and craving solitute I bought a cottage in Scandinavia and decided to live a more laidback life..I actually thought about becoming a dog breeder but I couldn´t stomach having to see the puppies leave so they stay with me, I´m a soft touch when it comes to animals.

But whenever I feel the itch to roam the world you might find me around Manchester, Abu Dhabi or Holland/Ruhrpott..I´m not dead yet.

I´m not married but spoken for..

That was a concern decades ago, I got no enemies and is approaching 50 nowadays.

Besides..that kind of life was not as exciting as it might appear in todays drug crazed view. More like todays security consultant.

Haha..Yeah, maybe I was a bit to open but I´m not part of that life anymore.

It all seems so futile when I reflect on it nowadays, in particular when I read about the "security" militias/guards in Iraq. But then most people have these feelings I guess.
Youth is simply to precious to be wasted on kids..

Hi everyone,

We are planning on moving to Dubai over the next month or so and wanted to write and say hello!

We both call London home but have lived in Belgium for the past 2 years - hence the username!

See you all.
