Austrians National Day in Abu Dhabi

Austrian National Day

Every year Austrian's in UAE celebrate Austrian's National Day in Abu Dhabi. Not sure how you celebrate your National Day, but for us - we are a small community of several hundreds in Dubai - it is great possibility to reconnect and meet friends.

Woman puts husband up for sale on Facebook after he ignored Mother’s Day

Woman puts husband up for sale on Facebook after he ignored Mother’s Day

Husbands better never forget mother’s day or you might be sold, like Katie from Florida did.

“Husband for sale, best offer. Hubby who couldn’t be bothered to wish me happy Mother’s Day or do anything special for me yesterday. One woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure — has eight years of marriage mileage so somewhat broken in. Pick up in Jupiter,” read one of Katie Bouyeau’s Facebook posts.

Dog care idea

Dog care idea

Recently I saw a great idea in Austria to protect dog’s paws. It looks like a great idea for Dubai too, to keep sand out of houses and apartments and protect a dog.  

Pawz is the world's only disposable and reusable waterproof dog boot. Made of natural rubber, Pawz are 100% biodegradable. Pawz are designed to go on easily and fit securely without zippers or straps. Fashionable yet durable, Pawz offers serious paw protection.

Energy Saving in Households

Energy Saving in Households

Energy consumption in Dubai grew by 64% between 2006 and 2012, new technology for light bulbs helps reducing your DEWA bill and CO2 footprint.

Compared to traditional incandescents, energy-efficient light bulbs such as halogen incandescents, compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and light emitting diodes (LEDs) have the following advantages:

- Typically use about 25%-80% less energy than traditional incandescents, saving you money
- Can last 3-25 times longer.

Today's energy-efficient bulbs are available in the wide range of colors and light levels you've come to expect. While the initial price of energy-efficient bulbs is typically higher than traditional incandescents, newer bulbs cost less to operate, saving you money over the life of the bulb. Many of the newer bulbs last significantly longer than traditional bulbs, so you won't need to replace them as often.

Thunderstorm in Dubai

Thunderstorm in Dubai

If you didn’t wake up yesterday night you missed some incredible lightning in Dubai. One result of the thunderstorm were traffic jams this morning and therefore we had some delays.
E.g. it took us one hour to get into Arabian Ranches this morning.
Please excuse any inconvenience and enjoy pictures from yesterday night (first one credit goes to Rizwan Photography not sure if it was edited :-).
