  1. Sending money home

    We used ADCB (Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank) and set up a money transfer account on line which took about 3 days for approval, after that you just need to put in the amount you want to transfer and it takes 1 - 3 days to transfer. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday are the best days as it would usually be there the next day. Do not give up your US Bank account as you will need it to transfer the funds into. ADCB did not charge for wire transfers, but Bank of America charged $16.00 per wire transfer. Good luck with your move and new journey. You will love Abu Dhabi!!
  2. Rent a Villa for 1 day?

    Try Mushriff Central Park ( the old Mushriff Park) it is HUGE. It's a perfect place for children, it has a farm barn with camels, goats, cows etc., a putting zoo and many play structures. I believe they will host your party also. Im not sure about the BBQ, but you could ask them. It really is a pretty park.

  10. Absurd Rental Increase

    Hi there! Yes they moved and it has been empty since they moved out, and that was well over a year ago! They would not budge on the price and it has now sat empty all this time. Go figure...
  11. Finding doctors

    It will also depend on your insurance.
  12. Child having pain in leg

    Don't worry it is very common and they will grow out of it. My pediatrician in the US said it was very common especially with boys - they are always running, jumping etc. Have you tried warm baths before bed? My Dr. Told me to give small dose of ibuprofen at bedtime.

  15. Quiet Summer or Going anywhere for the holidays?

    Last week I had a nasty fall after walking outside and my glasses fogged over completely. I missed the stairs and had a bit of a tumble and ended up with a dislocated shoulder and a tear to the a/c joint. So looks like I will be here also. Good news is that it was my right side and I am left handed.
