Hey thanks for letting me know about the drinks on Friday. Haven't got a car yet as my visa hasn't been approved yet, my company is doing it for me.

It's going ok been a bit homesick but getting there. Glad to know that people are friendly.

Hi Nadine.

I am looking forward to meeting some new people on Friday. I have never been to one of these brunch's, so it should be a laugh.

I have been lucky because I came out here with a group of guys I 've known for a while and met some Brits in work who like socialising (with beer).

How have you managed finding your way about. I am staying along from the Abu Dhabi mall, so everything is on my doorstep.

A.A.

Hey I'm still trying to get my bearings to be honest. My company has given me a Hotel Apartment on Hamdan Street, which luckily for me means I just have to walk across the street.

That's lucky I knew it was going to be difficult moving out hardly knowing a soul but luckily there seems to be a lot of expat forum's to look at and join. It will be good to meet some people. Is is just a brunch on Friday do you know?

Well...You're probably the luckiest person ever to come to UAE...Most of our bosses gave us only rooms in hotels; you got a hotel apartment...

Don't know how lucky I am they're only paying the bill for a month and then have to find a place of my own. Don't quite know where to look rent a flat or stay in hotel apartments which I can pay monthly

When you move out, will they be paying for a flat or for the whole building???

I think that they will only be paying for my room. I heard through the grapevine at work that they made an exception for me by giving me accommodation in the first place.

Also they only agreed to do it for the first month and then I'm on my own to sort out accommodation
