Any and every phone shop, alternatively go to your provider and get them to give you a replacement SIM.

Last year my wife upgraded her Appley thing...

I had contemplated trying to cut the ends off my fingers myself... or popping into a variety of "back street" places... none of which came with any guarantees of success.. So on a whim tried Etisalat.

I think it was about 50Dh... it took about 10 minutes...

Anyone know where I can buy an adapter so I can plug my normal 3 pin plug into this nonsense of a socket? I don't ever recall ever seeing anything like this in the likes of Carrefour, etc, and the big Sharaf DG in Times Square appears to be closed for refurbishment.
According to (my interpretation of) Abu Dhabi's electrical code these are not even legit. Yes, they are used in India and for some odd reason our apartment in Saadiyat had two of these (the rest were all typical British 3-pronged). We have a small kid. Guess what: there appeared to be no place selling safety plugs for these, at least in Abu Dhabi. We pretty much did the same: escalated the issue and had the property manager replace them.

Hi Folks, I've been looking for a pool cue for quite a while. Seems there are a few places to play pool in Dubai, but I'm struggling with where to buy equipment from. I've been to some regular sports stores like Stadium, Sun and Sand, Modell's, though no luck so far. Would anyone know where to get a cue?

Unhappy lucozade sport

hello everyone,

I've been here for 7 months and have not been able to find my beloved lucozade sport orange flavour. The other week I went to the park n shop in DIP for the first time, saw some lucozade sport but not in my desired flavour. If anyone knows where I could find it you shall be my saviour! Or if anyone knows if my drink is unobtainable please put me out of my misery.

Many thanks

Anthony

Drinking so called 'sports drinks' like Lucozade means you'll be putting yourself out of your misery.

You do realise its just soda with more sugar piled into it and there is ZERO to do with sports involved with it ?

I still remember when my mum used to give me Lucozade when I was poorly as a kid. It was horrid stuff! But I was quite taken with the cellophane stuff the bottle was wrapped in....

That's right - you knew you were sick when the parents got the Lucozade out. Actually quite liked it taste wise - but far too sweet. Of course the sweetness was the whole point of it, to get energy into you.

Of course but in those days your mum would make sure you would be up and about - running jumping, climbing trees and using up that energy

These days you get couch potatoes slugging it like they really need it when what they actually need to do is to go for a walk and drink more water

(No offence intended to the guy asking about it though)

But it really is cr*p though - coloured chemicals with a load of sugar in it.
