LOL.., just the good half!!!

My dad's Sikh and my mum's Italian, but I look Piu Greca d'Italiana

At school they use to call me Sikh the Greek - which I guess nowadays would be considered bullying.

But I've had to leave Blighty in order to get away from the family businesses once and for all - because everytime I think I got out., they pull me back in.

I drive a BMW M3 (new one) and I'm a bit of a ladies man although next October I'm getting an arranged marriage in the true sense - she's actually been specially imported from the old country. We have met, and have done it but it might have been better if she'd had some experience. LOL!

Anyway girls, send me your PMs and pics and maybe we could be friends while I'm single in Dubai.

Ignore the desperate troll, mdb...

The Saudi lads should be able to help out, but from memory (I Was based in Dharhan for a few years) it'll depend on the type of compound life you land amongst...

hi My husband and I arrived in Al Ain in April and just getting used to life here. We moved from scotland along with his boss and another scot who will appear in july. We have a villa in the shiab al ashkhar area and I dont drive (well not here anyway) I am a primary teacher but looking for some part time work in nursery or school at the moment. We have left our 21 year old triplets at home for a life of leisure here. So far so good! Am getting good at sweeping up sand!!!
