Re: NZ's uncertain future?

Re: Bahrain

Exactly. Saudi without Bahrain is going to be tough and they are saying this could last months. Can't believe this, Bahrain is all there is here.

Bahrain

Anyone in Bahrain?

I am intending to be in Bahrain for the weekend (across from KSA) and was wondering if it's really as bad as we are led to believe or should I keep away?

Re: Time for Ten Pound Poms again?

The insurance organisations also have their own insurance against these types of disasters, hence the international insurers taking much of the construction bill.

Re: Time for Ten Pound Poms again?

I may be wrong here, but doesn't the lions share of the reconstruction bill fall on international insurers? I'm sure that is the case.

Isn't that exactly what you've been doing to NZ to try and make Australia look better. Never throw stones from a glasshouse.

Re: Finding Employment in NZ

I've been rejected for many jobs in my lifetime both in NZ and in the UK. One thing in common with NZ job rejections is I always got a PFO (Please F*** Off) letter in the post following the...

Re: Finding Employment in NZ

I have worked in the UK and it is very rare to here anything back from an employer when you are unsuccessful in a job application, usually they won't even have the time to write a letter or send an...

Re: Bahrain or KSA?

I agree that most Saudis go berserk when abroad, though this is usually tempered with a genuine fear of god. Like the Saudi that I saw looking at a picture of a naked woman on the computer screen,...

Thanks for the replies above. It seems fairly obvious that Bahrain is a lot better than KSA, but I was wondering what kind of expat lifestyle is offered in Bahrain. Is there a large expat community...
