    Hey bud. For the fine issue, the only thing you can do is raise a complaint in the main police HQ in Abu Hail or you can try Murakabatt. Naturally, do not expect great service. Other than that i'm at a loss for what you can do. Have not been in such situation im sorry.

    Second thing is I work for ENOC now. Government sector, good pay but not so much benefits but you are very well taken care of. I suggest you apply to them. I'll let you know how once i find out more :)

    Lol, yeah I'm well aware.

    I have a few Emirati friends, one of which I will take with me. I'd rather pay off the fine in installments rather than 5000 AED in one go. However, they might tell me to piss off & pay it all at once, no negotiation.

    All I know is I MUST visit a police station & present my license by the 21st December MAX. If I don't go then surely they will come after me!

    Here in Dubai if you fuucck the police, or try to, you get fucckked harder!

    Thanks RedSeptember.

    Also thanks to the others for your suggestions, will give the other songs/artists a try since I remembered to bring my earphones to work, luckily youtube is not blocked. :D

    I don't listen to much of this type of stuff, but I know that whenever I hear Sarah McLauchlin sing Angel, I pretty much melt. If I could hear an angel sing, I think thats probably what it would sound like.

    Some seemingly lame stuff like Neil Diamond and Lionel Ritchie is pretty slick and relaxing too lol.

    Enya had some good tracks, loved the Gladiator track.

    Enigma also have many great relaxing tracks which will put your mind at ease & faling asleep shouldn't be a problem.

    I tried to burn a few tracks at work yesterday and the bastard froze at 74% when making an audio cd. :bang:

    All tracks were found from youtube, too many good songs to list!

    Dam, seems your in the same boat as me?

    I'm not joking but I'm seriously thinking of leaving Dubai & returning to the UK.

    Thing is I hate extreme heat but then again I hate the cold & rain we get in London.

    However, with regards to sleep, I was at least able to sleep 8 hours or more in the UK. I guess I'm used to sleeping in a cold country. Also, if your HOT it's hard to sleep. Even when falling asleep I wake up in the middle of the night due to the heat.

    I don't want to leave but having 3-4 hours of sleep 7 days a week over a 2 year period is killing me, especially the fact I also work 9 hours per day...

    Each country has it's advantages & disadvantages, there is no where perfect.

    Due to my health I must leave. My mother who happens to have Asthma left Dubai last year. The hot, humid & dusty climate only makes it worse.

    I suffer most at work, when quiet it's as hard as fcuk to stay awake.
     
  10. Maybe u need to see how the natives sleep? Aircon, light breathy clothes etc. I had no problems sleeping in dubai, if theres a light breeze its beautiful with a window open. If u put music on, play it very cost, just bearly audable, maybe even just have a program like the BBC news radio playing in background helps me. Or sleep earlier for a while?

    Also, I think you gotta try rest ur mind. Dont lay in bed peezed cos you cant sleep. Its sounds odd, maybe have a slow warm bath/shower to relax your muscles. And perhaps raise you feet slightly...

    Problem is my family turn the air conditioning off at night. When they do I roast. How they sleep at night with the heat, I dunno...

    Just had a warm shower, will try to sleep soon!

    Aphex Twin "Selected Ambient Works"

    Just stick to the Ambient Works(there are 2 double discs sets the one I linked is the first one) The rest of Aphex Twin's work would not be considered "relaxing"

    The Silversun Pickups are decent and pretty relaxing. I saw them live the other day as part of a multi-band outdoor show
     
  15. I also surgest not watching tv or going on pc atleast 1-2 hours before bed, its hard but that stuff stimulates your brain too much, needs time to settle. With the aircon, if you have the cash buy a small fan you can sit in ur room at end of bed or on bedside table just to give u a sensation of a cool light breeze, might b better then a full blown -20° aircon, cheaper to.

    I love listening to the Daft Punk Tron soundtrack while going to sleep. Its the only soundtrack to a movie i've ever liked.

    Just going through the first disc, not at all bad.

    Good idea, will try this. As for a fan, I already have one, it does indeed help cool you down.
    As for not watching the tv or using 2 hours before bed, I'll give it a shot.

    I'm going through it now whilst at work, so far it's ok.

    Lol I was joking about the horse tranquilizers. :grin:

    But if sleep is that much of an issue you can always try a pharmaceutical like "Night & Day", unless all the meth-heads in your country have made that outlawed too.

    This, lol. Pretty much every type of medicine used to help you sleep, fall asleep is banned here. :wanker:

    May move back to the UK in several months, this should do the trick.

    Even if it don't, there's the good old herb that will guarantee to give me a good night's sleep. :D

    I hope you move soon ... I'm worried about you living in a country with debtors prison and such harsh traffic laws! Doesn't seem like a good place to live when you get a traffic ticket, I'm glad Red September is helping out as best he can.

    I hope you get a job NEXT WEEK in the UK ... with the pay and benefits that you need to live the lifestyle you desire. I wouldn't be able to sleep either if I had someone demanding my car or anything for a traffic ticket!

    Wishing the best for you!
