I've seen a lot of Union Jack stuff at Matalan whenever I've popped in there.

It's not a Union Jack, it's the Union Flag.
A Jack is a type of flag.

Pedant out!

Union Jack - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
The Union Jack, also known as the Union Flag, is the national flag of the United Kingdom.

The claim that the term "Union Jack" properly refers only to naval usage has been disputed, following historical investigations by the Flag Institute in 2013.
Quote:
Graham Bartram (born 18 July 1963), a British vexillologist who is currently (2013) the Secretary-General for Congresses of the Fédération internationale des associations vexillologiques and the Chief Vexillologist of the Flag Institute, when interviewed on the BBC Broadcasting House programme on 13th October 2013, stated that either name was perfectly valid whatever the purpose. He stated that the theory that the flag should only be referred to as Union Jack when flown at sea was wrong.

Well said that man.

And don't fly it the WRONG WAY UP - unless you're in distress !

That REALLY bugs me.

Seen one or two around the shops in DIFC, upstairs where all the galleries are, but it doesn't tend to be cheap there. Seen an awesome 'egg chair' coloured in the flag to. Looks a bit like this (http://media-cache-cd0.pinimg.com/73...f8a74abcd7.jpg) but older

Does anyone know a retailer for Casio watches? I'm looking for a reasonably inexpensive casual watch for travel and the beach etc. where I wouldn't want to risk taking a dress watch. I was thinking maybe this one, which seems a little less hideous than most, but I can't seem to find one in Dubai.

Casio Men's Waveceptor Watch

Okay, this time its aqua aerobics waddles - Mrs TWG has been around the sports shops in Dubai Mall to no avail.

(A waddle is that big long polystyrene floating pipe the ladies use in the pool)
