Default Sunday-Sunday diaries/calendars

Hey

Not sure if I'm searching for the impossible, but is there anywhere in Dubai I can buy a Sunday-Thursday diary and/or calendar, rather than a Monday-Friday one? Admittedly I've not exactly scoured the city yet as I've only been here 3 days but I've only seen Monday-Friday ones in the two stationary stores I've checked.

Thanks

They do exist - just don't know where you buy them from

People actually buy calendars and diaries? Aren't they Xmas gifts? Or given to you by companies you deal with?

Why not use an electronic diary/calendar - you can set it up with different configurations/colours/pop-ups etc

Thanks for the suggestion. I do this but always liked old fashioned pen+paper a little more

Thanks Scamp. I've not tried the monstrous Dubai Mall yet but heading over there later, will check out the bookshops.

There's a huge bookshop in Dubai Mall, next to virgin in one of the atriums.

Try Borders or WHSmith in Marina Mall.
