We picked up the gas cooking range sold to us by a newly found friend for 1/1oth of the price despite only two months old. It is still in perfect working condition, she just needed to get rid of that in place of a new one, so the great bargain.
It was our first time seeing these people but almost instantly, we bonded. The family has a lovely four-year old daughter — Pristine was asking why her hair is red ala Anne of Green Gables!! This is one of the great things about living in Dubai, we meet people from all corners of the globe. The couple are originally from Syria but lived in the United States for so long until they moved to Dubai 2 years ago. Had we stayed in Japan, Pristine would not have a chance to have friends with red hair!
When we picked the rabbits from the family originally from the UK, Pristine asked me why the previous owner, a girl of 10, has big bright blue eyes!
I got some furnitures (and lovely pets) from people repatriating to their home country. The furnitures we have right now are from friends from Canada, UK, Syria, USA, Egypt, UAE..who knows what’s next.
