Life in Dubai has been passing at 1000mph this past month. Moving into an apartment is a ball ache which takes time. After shelling out a years rent up front, then getting the electric, water and internet connected is not exactly the easiest thing to do in the world.
Still, it’s all done now. Moved in, internet up and running, knives, forks and Marmite are now in the cupboards. All that’s missing now is Miss Tim.
I’ve sent out the Batsign… hopefully she’ll be here at the end of the week.
Some pictures for you… of my time here so far….
Drunken one night… 3am munchies. This guy is actually wearing Simpson pajamas!
Some tasty cars here for sure. We all know that. The money these people have can only be described as ‘vulgar’. I’ve found a car I want – but it’s no way in the league of the average Joe here. It’s does have a 5.7ltr engine though. More on that later.
When Lambos and Bentleys are ten a penny…. This is a real head turner….
I still can’t express how impressive the Dubai skyline is when driving through Downtown. Truly awesome.
One of the things I like about my new Downtown apartment is the coffee shop. Perfect place to grab a bit of breakfast and take in the early morning sun. Not a bad view either…
I’ll be happy when Miss Tim get here – so I can share it all with her. I have a good circle of pals here which is cool, but there are things I want to do which really isn’t appropriate with a bunch of guys.
This is a nice little trendy bar called the Barasti. For me, I’ll take this view over the Golden Bar any day.
As I am now working 9 to 5, just trying to make a living, people are asking me what is Miss Tim going to do to amuse herself while I am at work? Well, apart from sleeping, the Dubai Mall is within walking distance. The Dubai Mall being the largest in the world I am told. What do Malls have?
– shoes. I sent her this picture I took the other day.
Dubai is expensive. Compared to Bangkok.. Bangkok is a bargain. I’ve been burning through cash like Jonas goes through women. I am putting it down to settling in and getting to know the place. Now it’s been a month and Miss Tim is inbound, I can calm it down a little.
Having said that – there are an awful lot of shoe shops here.
