  1. Pool Maintenance Recommendations

    Finally I decided to do something about our swimming pool so if someone can recommend a good swimming pool maintenane company in Abu Dhabi it will be great. I was just about to sign a contract with a Dubai based company and I got a very negative feedback from my sister. Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

  3. Sibling Priority In Al Dar Academies

    Thank you for the information deja vu. It was very helpful. at least i know now when to start expecting. The admissions also told me to give up on any school transitions in Abu Dhabi after Dec 1 seems like a new rule from ADEC . so only hope is a reunited 2015/2016 year for the kids ( inshallah )
  4. Hi Ladies, Just wondering if anyone can give me some insight on the sibling priority for enrollment in Al Dar schools? I have 3 children studying there since the beginning of the year but my 4th cant find a place yet ? Its very hard juggling the schedule of two schools!!! Did anyone have to go through this? And how long do we need to wait through the school year to learn of any space availability?

  7. Share Your Good Reads

    I would like to suggest having this post for sharing all our good reads . Book Name: 'The Law of the Garbage Truck' Category : 'Self Help and Personal Growth' "How often does a bad driver, rude waiter, curt boss, or an insensitive relative ruin your day with a thoughtless action, an angry rant, or a snide remark? And how often have you ruined someone else's day? In The Law of the Garbage Truck, David J. Pollay shows us that by refusing to let others dump their "garbage" (negativity, anger, resentment) on us—and letting it "pass by" instead—we become happier and more successful, both personally and professionally. And when we stop dumping garbage on others, we improve our relationships, strengthen our businesses, and bring our communities together." It has been translated to more than 30 languagues and is a bestseller! For more details: http://www.davidpollay.com/book_the_law_of_the_garbage_truck.html I just finished reading this book and found it to be a very rich read. In the beginning I was taken back by the name but after reading the book and realising the ideas that the author is trying to put through I was very happy I got this book and would highly recommend it. Looking forward for the next good read!.

  10. Being a Muslim , I liked to share this information about the Athan since many of you have missed it and its nice to share how it all started. The origin of the Adhan , Muslim call to prayer: “When the Muslims arrived in Al-Madinah they used to gather and try to figure out the time for prayer, and no one gave the call to prayer. One day they spoke about that; some of them said: ‘Let us use a bell* like the Christians do;’ other said, ‘No, a horn like the Jews have.’ Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, said: ‘Why don’t you send a man to announce the time of prayer?’ The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: ‘O Bilal, get up and give the call to prayer.’” (Sahih) Bilal was chosen because he had a beautiful voice. Sourced from Wikipedia: Bilal ibn Rabah[3] Arabic: بلال بن رباح‎ (580–640 AD) also known as Bilal al-Habashi, Bilal ibn Riyah, and ibn Rabah was one of the most trusted and loyalSahabah (companion) of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. He was born in Meccaand is considered as the first muezzin, chosen by Muhammad himself.[1][4][5] Born as a slave, Bilal was among the emancipated slaves freed by Abu Bakr due to the Islamic teachings of slavery (see Muhammad's views on slavery). He was known for his beautiful voice with which he called people to their prayers. ADRose, I agree that some muezzins are not supposed to be muezzins in Islamic teaching the one who calls to prayer must have a beautiful voice. So if he doesnt have a beautiful voice its time he passes the role to someone else.

  12. School For Speech Delayed Child

    I know a family with a child who had a similair situation. They took him to bright beginnings nursery in Meharba and the kid did quite well. The speech issue cleared out eventually. This is a link of their website if you like to check it out: http://www.brightbeginnings.ae
  13. Today we got this mentioned in the schools newsletter. I found it a very good initiative from the school : "Through PHSE the children have been looking and talking about ‘New beginnings.’ The difficulties of starting in a new school or class, how to make our class welcoming to others and how we can improve our environment and our attitudes within them. "
  14. mousesoup and sem1972 your ideas are lovely! I am glad to know that many of us have been on the same boat and sailed quite well....

    noches, no one is apologising for the abuse but there is a universal law called the 'Law of Attraction'. It pays off to google it when you have some free time.
