Abu Dhabi Hobby Lobby: A Mother & Daughter Adventure
 
No I am no expert, but I do like to research.  So as soon as I knew that I was going to be moving to a country unknown to me, Google and I became best friends.  Every question that I had or thought I had or rumor that I had heard… I began searching for it.  For those who have the same questions, or are simply curious about how we will be living.. come click away.  And if your questions go unanswered, please feel free to ask me, if I don’t know it I will surely do my best to find the answers.    I have listed a few, but keep in mind this is a work in progress.

How will we communicate with others in the world?

Skype (its free and we can video chat computer to computer)
www.skype.com

Magic Jack (for those who want to call on the phone and those without computers
www.magicjack.com

Etisalat (for local phone and internet service)

What will we watch on tv? (Well we will certainly have cable, although most channels will be local to the country there will be channels that we are familiar with.)  I am NOT a huge tv person.  I just like the noise,  I love my sitcoms, game shows and cooking shows (and my football).  But I still want to stay connected, will prob watch more, just to get a feel for my people.  So we WILL have cable.  (My godson will be happy to hear that…LOL)

Evision (surprised me with the channels, YES I will get the package with BET)

Where will we get our hair done? So many places…. Perms., weaves, braids, twists, whatever.  It’s all here.

How will we get around? For work transportation will be provided (so friggin awesome!!! And initially for everything else we will take cabs.  After that I plan to buy a used car.

Where am I going to sculpt this soon to be beautiful body? So many places to choose from, but these were the tow that I really like.  Not sure where I will really go,  I hear most of the hotels have plans.  We will see.  I love that some of the gyms are true spas.  I can’t wait to work out and then get my mani and pedi.
