I have a very fuzzy, very snuggly kitty in my lap, who urgently needs a home. He's micro-chipped and vaccinated and neutered, but he's homeless. We found him in our parking garage (or he found us), and he clung to us, giving us cuddles and demanding a home. Believe me, if we didn't have three already, we'd keep him! He's totally sweet!

He's about 15 months old, and very playful. Please reply or send a message to chu_hi@livejournal.com if you, or anybody you know, is looking to adopt a great pet!

Lovers of beauty in the UAE, my friend has alerted me to this event:

It is going on for two more days in Dubai. I hope to see you there.

For any like-minded philatelists who may be lurking in this community, I invite you to my own little no-holds-barred haven of loveliness:

It's the best hobby in the world. The sooner you realize this, the less painful it will be.

The community the_recession is looking for Live Journal members around the world to participate in a very brief poll checking off the economic conditions in your area. By the end of the poll (open to members and non-members, alike) we hope to have a better idea of what the global economic situation looks like right now. If you would be so kind as to help please go here to find your country, territory, colony, or state.

Thank you! :)

I have applied for University of Wollongong in Dubai, and i was wondering how many people from there are on LJ. Or are there any who also have applied there.

I'm new at LJ and I can really use some good friends. It's not that I have any but I'd love to have more.
Visit my page if you like.
Take care,

1. If your road map is more than a few weeks old, throw it out and get a new one.
2. If you are in Rashidiya and your map is one day old, then it is already obsolete.
3. Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. Dubai has its own version of traffic rules, which can be summarized as "Hold on and pray!"
4. If it is your priority to cross, forget it and wait.
5. There is no such thing as a dangerous high-speed chase in Dubai. Everyone drives like that.
6. When you plan to get a new car, ask first about its acceleration from 80 to 160 Km/h (recommended: 3 seconds). Very important if you frequently use the Emirates Road.
7. All directions start with Sheikh Zayed Road, which has no beginning and no end.
8. The morning rush hour is from 5:00 AM to 1:00 PM, The evening rush hour is from 1:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
9. Thursday's rush hour starts Wednesday morning.
10. If you slow down at a yellow light, you will be rear-ended and then given a ticket by the Dubai Police.
11. If you are the first one at the intersection, when the light turns green ignore the car honking behind you and count to five to avoid crashing into one of the cars running the red light in cross-traffic.
12. Construction on all main roads is a way of life and a permanent form of entertainment. (Sorry for the inconvenience)
13. All unfamiliar sights are explained by the phrase, "Oh, we must be in Sharjah!"
14. Car horns are actually toys for big boys.
15. Anyone in a Land Cruiser, Tuned Patrol, or Mercedes with tinted windows has the right of way. Period!
16. If you are driving a Corolla, Sunny, or another small Japanese car, stay on the far right lane. No comment!
17. Most roads mysteriously change names as you cross intersections.
18. To ask directions, you must have good knowledge of Hindi/ Malayalam
19. A trip across town will take a minimum of four hours, although Sheikh Zayed Road has an unposted minimum speed of 150 Km/h.
20. It is sobering to realize that local Arabs are taught how to drive by Pakistanis.
21. 18 wheeler trucks are one of the fastest vehicles in Dubai; they can do 120 Km/h on Hatta-Oman Road when fully loaded.
22. The minimum acceptable speed on the Emirates Road is 160 km/h. anything less is considered downright sissy.
23. Al Khail Road is Dubai's daily version of NASCAR.
24. Dubai Autodrome has a new extension: The Emirates Road.
