“My Travel Journal” as the title explains is a travel journal to be used by children while traveling to other cities and countries around the world. Often children are not sure what to write about, “My Travel Journal’’ is filled with prompts and interesting facts to look out for and write about. The journal takes a child from when the family decides to take a trip, to what to pack, where to stay, foreign words they will need, their favourite moments, facts on the city and country they visited, money matters and a world map to highlight cities they visited. There are also many pages that allow the child to write freely about their daily activities. Dedicated pages are available for drawing, creating a collage and attaching items they have collected on their trip. Read more
We are moving to Dubai shortly. We have a 9 month old daughter. My husband will be working on Khalid Bin Al Waleed Road ( there is a green and red line metro station. I am wondering if you could suggest some areas /communities for us to live. We would like somewhere that has a good family community, with parks, baby toddler clubs etc. We would also like for it to be accessible to my husbands work, it does not have to be close but accessible. Our budget is a maximum of 130,000 AED per annum. We would be looking for an area that has a villa/town-house type accommodation 3 bedroom. Any suggestions of appropriate communities are greatly appreciated. Read more
The Dubai Metro is one of the most advanced public transport system in the world operated by the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority. The system offers an inexpensive, safe, and convenient method of traveling to your destination, as well as, seeing sights around the city. Dubai’s Metro service has two lines–the Red Line runs along Sheikh Zayed Road from Jebel Ali to Rashidiya, and the Green Line which runs around the Creek.
Many expats moving to Dubai will be very familiar to on-line shopping not just for luxury products but for their daily groceries. Well known supermarkets such as Tesco and Wal-Mart have been doing it for years. These on-line shops supply most of the customers grocery daily needs and makes life just that bit easier.
Residents who live in areas such as Jumeirah have for years had the luxury of phoning up the local corner shop requesting they deliver the odd pint of milk or packet of cigarettes but the idea of ordering your whole weeks shopping on-line is something that has not been available to residents… until recently. Now at a click of a button residents can now buy everything from milk and bread to fruits and veggies from online platforms
During the months of July and August K9 friends is always full to capacity. The world has left Dubai for vacation and a lot of dogs have been kicked out of their homes as the owners made no provision for them whilst they were gone.
Fostering means caring for a dog in your home until a permanent home can be found or until it needs to return to the shelter. Ideally we are looking for foster homes for July and August. The dogs can be returned to K9 in September when our homing’s pick up again, or on any date pre arranged with our office. Be aware if you live in an apartment we will need a letter from the landlord to say its OK to keep a dog in the building. Read more
