Re: Hurricane Phet

Not necessarily. You can have logical faith e.g., I have faith that my car will get me from a to b because it had a service recently, or you can have blind faith which means you have faith in...

Re: Accommodation Abu Dhabi

Re: Moving to Abu Dhabi in May

Why would you have no social life in AD? People who have lived in both cities tend to say they found it much easier to make new friends etc in AD than in Dubai.

I don't understand what you mean by...

Re: job in Abu Dhabi

I think they had about half a dozen on draught but yeah, two of those were Stella and Hoegar-however you spell it. I liked it there but I just didn't like the prices, I really think they are taking...

Re: job in Abu Dhabi

Re: job in Abu Dhabi

Your assumptions of costs of accommodation and education are good, but pretty much everything is expensive here. Latest bar to open - admittedly selling very good Belgian beer - is 7 quid a pint....

Re: JOB OFFER ABU DHABI - COST OF LIVING

Your housing allowance is ok for just you but you will struggle if your family come over. You will also struggle if you don't get an education allowance. It depends on how old your kids are and what...

Re: U2 in UAE

No, I agree completely - that is exactly my point - why would anyone want to pay Dhs120 for warm, cheap (probably) champagne out of a plastic glass??

Re: U2 in UAE

Agree, but shame the piss-poor beer was bloody Dhs40 a pint and the bar staff didn't know their arses from their elbows.

Re: Is this reasonable?

If they are being that tight from the word go I'd tell them to get lost. What housing are they providing? Flights home (just for you?)? Do you get an education allowance if/when you have kids? etc...

Well it is a more apt description, that's for sure!

Sorry to be picky but.... it doesn't matter whether you buy your car in AD or Dubai, so not really an issue, and who cares what hotel prices are like in a city you live in?!
