Most of us Expats in the UAE interact more with other Nationalities apart from the Arabic Speaking Nations. The Post was meant in 'Good Spirit.' Take a look at my previous posting, and you find that I have offered 'The Basics' in Hindi, Tagalog, and Russian, together with Arabic. I do not consider that I am going 'Off-Topic' at all - Just trying to help? However, if you consider this (in some way) wrong, I am prepared to capitulate, and deprive everyone of the benefit of having a few words and expressions used commonly in the Gulf Region.

Just to reiterate - But if that is the way in which it goes, who am I to complain?
