So... I have a little legal quandry

Hey everyone. It's been a long time since I posted here.

I had to leave the UAE early in 2013 due to losing my job in late 2012.

This was due to a combination of it being a bad time to look for...

Re: Best Qatar bank for QAR>GBP transfers?

I'd highly recommend TransferWise. I recently used them to transfer a large amount of cash to the UAE from the UK and it all went very smoothly. They charged around 1.5% of the fee.

Re: Epic Newspaper Fail

It's been edited. The original was just as much of a layout fail, and was from nearly three years ago.

Re: What percentage of your salary do you spend on rent?

25%. I'd be willing to spend up to 33% on the right place, but certainly no more than that.

Re: Can the body cope with 50C?

I think it's Alt-G (the one to the right hand side of the space bar) and 0176 on your numpad.

Re: Returning on a Tourist Visa

Are you sure Virgin didn't misunderstand? I get the impression they thought you were talking about staying in the UAE for 90 days on a tourist visa.

Re: Can the body cope with 50C?

It's where the Windows button would be.

Look in the bottom left of yours screen, you've got:

Fn cltrl alt cmd spacebar. It might also be called Option or marked with ⌥.

Re: Can the body cope with 50C?

It's easy to do on a Mac. It's just alt+0. Another example of Windows' insistence on using alt to tab to the menu bar as being a waste of keyboard shortcuts. ;)

Re: Homeward bound...

True about the Emirates part, but then you've also go Ryanair and Easyjet. Both all economy (in fact, super economy) airlines with no rich parent airlines company.

Just as no one has explicitly said this yet, I'll say it.

You cannot legally live with the opposite sex anywhere in the UAE – or Gulf for that matter – unless they are your wife, or family.

Re: Dubai to Fujairah by car - best route?

2:30-3 hours I think depending on where you are in Dubai.

Take either Umm Sequim or the 66 to the 611 and then head towards Sharjah. Then take the 88 and it'll take you all the way to Fujairah.

Re: Arrived in Dubai!

It'll be there for another 18 months or so. Emirates Crown end isn't so bad though. You're quite far away from the bulk of the road works, so noise shouldn't be an issue.
