Haha! Understand that. I would pretty much be the same! I would love to stay in if I had a TV!noisyboy said:Given the circumstances, I'd have to say my place lol. Just because Chelsea is in the final, I wouldn't want to be out because things can get out of hand, especially since I'd wanna jump in joy for any goals scored by Bayern.
I would agree with that actually. A TV is a good investment. I got mine from Carrefour, but it was in the shopping festival.Yeah yeah! Still new! But it is getting better. Just need to have more time explore things. Maybe good idea to buy a TV as well.
Yeah, its not easy, but it's definitely doable. People freak out all the time because of that, which makes me wonder why. Dubai is a very social place in my opinion. As long as you put the effort to go out and network (maybe not the best term lol) with people, you will be fine.Has been pretty good! All new experience. Miss home and friends a bit but I guess we are all the same. It's a bit hard for me to build a social life though, working on it.
You got cable as well? How much you pay for it?
That sounds petty good actually. Well, my roommate and I share the Internet bill with etisalat at about 300 a month and that's Internet only. can't go with du actually as the Internet provider for my building is only etisalat. Sucks.noisyboy said:Yeah, its not easy, but it's definitely doable. People freak out all the time because of that, which makes me wonder why. Dubai is a very social place in my opinion.

I have du's cable, the basic package for 50 (pretty much mandatory), and to be able to watch champions league etc, you need to add the Jazeera channels. I added +1 all the way to +10 as well as HD1 and HD2, for 50, so a total of 100. You can add the standard definition Jazeera channels for an extra 28, so a total of 78, but I'm a bit of a football nut and I want that stuff in HD lol.
Now I wanted a package with internet, I opted for the 16mb download speed (or so they say) so I can stream movies. You can stream games as well. So the tv, internet and phone (madatory with the package) is 329. Add the 50 for the jazeera channels, total of 379. There is a lower package, and a higher package.
