    October Coffee Morning

    I love the coffee mornings, have made some great friends as a result of them. I think there are a lot of ladies out there who often feel lonely and lost and an ADW meet is a great way to create a social network, which is SO important as an ex-pat.

    I'm sorry to see you're not happy with your maid. But why keep someone in your house when both of you are not happy with each other? Especially when you'll have babies soon. You want someone who is happy to do her work and someone whose work you are happy with. I hope you find a solution all of you are satisfied with.

    Cushions?

    Was at Dragonmart yesterday....they had these cool sequin ones...i know not normally a fan...but you ran your hand one way and it kept changing colours....was cool. You could get them made with whatever fabric and tassels you wanted there cheaply.

    Cushions?

    There is a furniture store next to the coop in Muroor, same location as Awani ( same row, other end) ,they have the fancy ones and you can ask for some to be customized to your taste too. Also, check where they sell Italian Furniture, like Royal Furniture, Heritage Furniture in Carrefour Airport Road have a store completely for tassel items and fine furnishings, Medinat Zayed Souq have fine furnishing stores with tassels items like cushions and beaded or sequined table top covers. there are many places tucked away inside Abu Dhabi.

    Cushions?

    We got really nice plain cushions from BHS in AD Mall. I'm not sure what their selection is like now given they have gone bankrupt in the UK. Also H&M next door had some nice cushions and throws. ETA - I completely misread your post!! You want the fancy ones! Sorry can't help you with that lol

    Places in Abu Dhabi

    In the city of Abu Dhabi, I would recommend the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque as it is a fantastic landmark, a beautiful building. I also suggest the Heritage Village as a good little place to find out about how the Emirati people used to live. There is a great zoo here in Abu Dhabi - Emirates Park Zoo. Elsewhere in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, I recommend taking a trip to Al Ain. It is about the same distance from the city of Dubai as the city of Abu Dhabi is, the three cities sort of form a triangle. In Al Ain there is Jebel Hafeet, a mountain on the Omani border. There is also the Al Ain National Museum which has some interesting exhibits and archaeological artefacts. The Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum is the small palace that the Al Nahyan family lived in before moving to Abu Dhabi. Al Ain Zoo is also good.

    I think there are a few people who make handmade stuff, but unfortunately, without a licence, it is illegal to sell your stuff, and for most of us, the cost of obtaining a licence is not worth it. I'll keep my eye open for the next coffee morning...it would be lovely to catch up with you!

    Lakeland in Mushrif Mall

    I was in the MoE one yesterday and its nearly empty. I asked the guy if they were all closing permanently and he told me they were having a refurb. Really didnt believe him, I told him all the ones in AD were closed and he just said, no refurb. Hmmmmm

    Yes all Lakeland stores are now closed and the nearest one is in Mall of the Emirates in Dubai. They have been closed here for about six weeks or so

    I place around two orders on Iherb every month: supplements, cosmetics, organic foods and hygienic products. There are so many products available that are either hard to get in Abu Dhabi and Dubai or extremely overpriced. I also enjoy being able to compare similar products instead of just buying what is available. By purchasing iHerb shipping savers I only pay around 7 dirhams for shipping. http://wp.me/p7ON39-2AU

    INTRODUCE YOURSELF !!!

    hi everybod My name is Sarah. I've moved to UAE in 2015 and I am very happy here. I am Egyptian and I operate a shopping website about where to buy in dubai. The best things I like here are: the winter weather, the beaches, the luxury, and meeting ppl with different backgrounds that you kinda have every stereotype you have about ppl is shattered. I have 3 kids, 4,6,10 and I like to read. I am currently reading a book called presence which I highly recommend. I also crochet and I have a crochet blog and I do some video tutorials too. that's about it!

    Beef Goulash

    I would love to make this dish but have been unable to find 'seasoned salt'. I've tried Lulu (Khadiyah and Al Wahda), Spinney's AND Waitrose! I would prefer not to make it myself so does anybody have any suggestions?

    JOB ADVISE - PLEASE :)

    Hi Kate, Our family have just moved to Abu Dhabi this year & so far it's been great even with the extreme heat & humidity. I used this website to find a school for our 4 year old boy: http://www.edarabia.com/schools/abu-dhabi/ We're living in Al Reef Downtown which is family friendly though we haven't investigated too much given the heat. There are good facilities & it's super close to Yas Island with Yas Mall which is great. No ideas on finance recruitment agencies sorry. Good luck, it's an exciting adventure
