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.

    Put it in one or two hundreds bunches in Ziplocs bags, and take it to several shops, they really do appreciate the change.
  9. Sewer smell

    momof3, I haven't really notice anything lol but probably will be sniffing now when I go out just to see...it may well be coming from all the work on the opposite side of you in Maqtaa, there is a huge project going on there and all the ground soil is lifted. It could easily reach there as so close. having said that, it also could be a fertilizer smell from one of your neighbors house?? perhaps, as when it is first put down it lingers for a few days.

  14. Eid Al AdHa 2017

    As far as I know Friday ( 1st of September) will be the first day of Eid al Al Adha, thus Thursday will be Day of Arafah. The Day of Arafah, is officially a holiday so holiday starts from that day. If you want to know more about it, you can watch it on TV as is annually broadcast live from Makkah ( Mecca) on most stations. It is a very significant time of devotion and prayers, and the Day of Arafah usually falls on the 9 th day of Dhu al Hijjah ( Islamic calendar year). Muslims spend their days in prayer and devotion on Mount Arafat for most of the day. many Muslims will be fasting this day too. The next day is the celebration of the completion of Hajj, Eid Al Adha. During these days those who haven't gone to Hajj, will be busy preparing for Eid, buying new clothes etc,, putting on henna, and preparing special meals and delicacies ready for family and visitors etc..

    Al Hamra Plaza on al Najda Street, there are several I have heard that allow pets, usually the smaller hotels but not sure of their ratings though.
