A treat for Book lovers! – Abu Dhabi International Book Fair

The annual Abu Dhabi Book Exhibtion is on and should be a treat to book lovers as well as those looking to picking up some useful titles. Though the ad below says the fair is until April 7th, a related article that I read in today’s (3rd April 2007) Emirates Today states that the fair will be till April 13th…could have been extended due to the response and demand.

I remember attending my first Abu Dhabi Book Fair in 1999 at the Cultural Foundation when starting out a career in web content development…I picked up an O’Reily book – Web Navigation .

Ministry of Labour – New Toll Free Helpline – 800 665

With the construction blitzkrieg happening in Dubai, there are bound to be labour problems. Good of the Ministry of Labour to start a helpline…..hmm..looks like this is more for the companies…there was also a toll free for labour…

…in tandem with the above post, I am posting the low res scan of the booklet for UAE Labour printed last year…the toll free for labour is 800 9119.

Dubai Police – Emergency Numbers Card

I found this business card sized cards displayed for free distribution at Rashid Hospital and at some mall…I guess they might be there at most malls and hospitals and other public venues. Click on the images to view a larger version.

The front portion (above) has the Al Ameen contact numbers and email.

The back portion has a list of the emergency numbers of the Police, Fire, Dewa including hospitals.
