  1. Sewer smell

    Yes, exactly! It started about a week ago
  2. Sewer smell

    I will check the toilets, thank you. It's not just my house, though, it's the whole area around me and only at night. I'm sitting here now at 4 am with my eyes burning. I will call the municipality again to complain, but my Arabic is poor and their English is poor. I may have to wait until my husband gets home from his travels.
  3. Sewer smell

    The smell starts getting bad around 6pm, and permeates the house. Then by morning, the house still stinks, but the outside is back to fairly normal. It is stronger at the back side of our house, but have smelled it also driving past the adnoc that is under construction (which is just a couple streets behind me). Our area (just to the side and behind us) had tons of drilling going on for over a year, when they were adding the new sewer network underground, so it makes sense that it is now coming from those pipes being opened. It hasn't been quite as bad the last couple of nights, but the smell is still there at night.

    Thanks. I'm glad you haven't been affected in khalifa a. It's really awful!
  5. Summer holidays

    Just returned from 2 months in the US, visiting family, theme parks and a sports camp for a couple of my children. It's always nice to travel, but nice to be back in my own bed as well!
  6. Too much change!

    My daughter had a bunch of coins, so we took it to 2 different banks, who refused to take it since they didn't have the automatic counter machine and no one wanted to sit and count them out. (Even though she had them neatly separated into different bags and had pre counted them.). Finally, went to an exchange company, who took the dirhams, but no interest in the smaller coins. If you find somewhere that will actually take the coins, please share.

  10. Sewer smell

    Has anyone noticed a horrible sewer smell over the past week? We thought it was our house, so called the municipality. They cleaned out a couple of our sewer drains, but nothing bad. The smell kept coming, so we thought maybe it's the adnoc under construction next to us. However, another friend said that the sewer smell is all over Abu Dhabi from the municipality opening the new sewer lines. It seems worse at night; to the point that one of my kids room smells so bad she can't sleep in it. My location is Abu Dhabi Gate City. Anyone else notice this horrible smell?
  11. Philippine's SIM card - hello phone card

    I don't know about sim card, but we always buy Hello-phone card from the coop in Maqta. Im pretty sure it is managed by Lulu, so I think you can buy there as well. Sometimes if the coop is out of them, then we buy off the guy near the front door who sells Halwa sweets. He always keeps a bundle behind the counter.
  12. Skin specialist

    It depends on your insurance. If you can go direct to a dermatologist, then I would go that route. However, some insurance require you see a general dr first and get a referral to the dermatologist.
  13. Grilled Seabass With Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

    This recipe sounded great, until I saw the 1/2 cup of butter in a recipe for 2 people. Yikes!
  14. We did a change status here for our housemaid who was here on a tourist visa. Issued the pink slip, and then paid the 500 dhs fee for change status. This was in November.
