1 Month in Dubai – Some photos

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!

Must have been a bet?

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.

Yeah, but is he happy?

When Lambos and Bentleys are ten a penny…. This is a real head turner….

still don't know what it is?

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.

It's just 'nicer' than the bars I am used to.

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.

This is going to cost me...

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.

  1. Yes some serious money floating about out there. I still prefer the view from The Golden Beer Bar though.
    Have you given up your house down in Hua Hin now Graham, or are you keeping that on?

    • Of course, there are things here that I just can’t take photos of!
      – so I stick to my claim its a better view than Golden Bar!

      Still got the house in HH. I’ll have a look later in the year as to whether I need to keep it.

      At least Lomeo has somewhere to swim now.

  2. Good pics – I’ve told Juliet that if she can conjure up the winning lotto numbers and we find some cheap flights we might even pop over to see you later in the year.

    I can piss in your pool now without worrying too much!

    • Romeo emirates is dropping their prices in april…. also i hear Etihad airways that flys to Abu Dhabi has slashed prices already by 40 percent…. check it out

          • Smart. Think Miss Tim would fry in it though.

            Damn those bastards in Emirates dropping their prices in April… why couldn’t they drop them as of an hour ago when I booked Miss Tim into Seat No. 1A on the plane flying here on Thursday!

            Two big suitcases… and only 2 pairs of shoes. I am hoping the bags are full of (her) money which she is going to buy shoes with.

          • hehehehehe its all about timing my friend…. although i would suggest to miss Tim to hold off on the shopping till maybe june because thats when the Dubai Summer Surprise starts it’s basically like the Dubai Shopping festival and stores start giving discounts and such also July is the EID the muslim New year again lots of great discounts for shopping…..

          • Hold off the shopping until June?

            That’s a joke right? She’ll be shopping in June alright.. but only to replace the shit that she bought in May, which replaced the shit she bought in April, which replace the shit she will buy this month.

            Women and shoes. Never question it. (Personally I think they all look the same)

          • i guess this would be a good time to let u know my birthday is in may too 😉
