  1. Live-out housekeeper: is it a good idea?

    Thanks everyone for your help :)
  2. Fabulous nanny available from December

    Hi, is she still available?
  3. I am interested in this option. Can you please share your experience?
  4. Hi everyone, As we are expecting our second child, we are considering hiring a full-time housekeeper/nanny and as we prefer having a lot of privacy plus the fact that we don't have a maid's room in our apartment, we need her to be a live-out employee. However, the idea of sponsoring someone who spends the night out scares me a lot. There are companies in Dubai who provide full-time housekeepers under their sponsorship but I couldn't find any availability at the moment. Has anybody used one of these companies? And for the worst case scenario (sponsoring a live-out) can you please share your experience? Thanks in advance!
  5. Taking cooked meat to Geneva

    Thank you guys for your help. Smiffy the link you posted is clear: " Food from non-EU Member States: it is forbidden to bring in any meat, eggs, milk, honey or other products of animal origin." Lhitt and Mija, the idea is to picnic, that's why we didn't consider halal restaurants, but it seems that we don't have the choice :( Thanks everyone, this was helpful.
  6. Thank you Desert Dream and Luimneach, this is very helpful :) I think I will go for the British system as I only heard good things about it. Take care!
  7. Taking cooked meat to Geneva

    Hi eveyone! We are planning to travel to Geneva and make a lot of picnics to take advantage of the beautiful landscapes. As it is difficult to get halal meat there, I am thinking about taking with me some cooked meat (preserved in olive oil and put in air-tight jars). The problem is that I read in some forums that food is not allowed in Geneva airport and that you encounter the risk of paying fines if you do take food with you. Is there anybody from Switzerland or who has been there and knows about the matter? TIA
  8. Hi ladies, My daughter will be eligible to start school next year in the British system but I am prioritizing either the American or the IB curricula. I am considering the following option: registering her in FS1 for next year and then the year after transferring her to KG1. For parents who already experienced such a transfer: what are the consequences of doing so? Is it true that if we ever decide to put her back in the British system and then try to take her to American or IB again she would lose a year? TIA
  9. Greek themed dress

    Thanks guys for the advice. I don't think I can shop in Sharjah, however I think I'm gonna buy a simple white and flowy dress as ashwaa said :)

  11. Greek themed dress

    Hi ladies, I am invited to a gala dinner where greek themed dresses are required for ladies. Has anyone of you seen such a thing recently in the shops? Thank you!

    Hi J1000, I live in Sun Tower and I think it's the best place to live in if you don't want to drive: there is a waitrose, a pharmacy, an Etisalat branch, a stationery shop, a hair salon, and plenty of restaurants and cafes. If you have kids, there is an outdoor playground in the ground floor plus a kids swimming pool in the 5th floor. The best part is that you can access the amenities without going out (it wouldn't be fun during the hot season). Hope this helps!
  13. Hi everybody, I am about to register my 2 year old daughter in a nursery and I am considering Caterpillar Nursery in Salam Street. I made a tour and it looked amazing. Is there anybody here who can make me reviews to help me choose? Thanks in advance
