Mujhe kuch kehna hai...

Just when i had mastered the art of spending in Sing dollars (without converting into indian rupees and gasping), it turns out i have to now think in dirhams.

That's why i'm a bit incommunicado these days, not that any of you are tearing your hair out in worry, but still....


:)


see you soon?

Just Like That said...

if you're going sightseeing, don't worry, SPLURGE! The worries can come a month later. :-)

If you're shifting- awwwww... packing up and leaving can be a pain, good luck with it. Calculating discounts is hard enough- to add in the exchange factor is heights to a mathematically challenged person like me. Hugs! Don't worry again, but. The sons should grasp it faster. Awwww... you've to shift schools for them now????

And since you're SOOOO fishing for it, :-D OF COURSE YOU WILL BE MISSED! Get the laptop organised before you do the rest of the unpacking in dirham land. You can do with our soothing, I tell ya.

Joy said...

Apne kahaan bhi kya.. Moving to Saudi? Wow.. you are globe trotter.. I believe the only continents you have not visited are Africa and Antarctica, right? Write a book on your world experiences.. Then you will have problem counting - either in S'pore $$ or Dirhams :) :)

Take care and good luck with moving. I am sure you would like the excitement of new land and new friends.. Old ones have not gone anywhere, they are right here, just looking for updates in this blog...

Gazal said...

nevertheless all the best for the move.will stay in touch over FB.

Hip Grandma said...

You know what.My daughter converts rupees to dollars and declare that India is costly.So I think we Indians calculate and convert currency to keep ourselves engaged.Happy shifting.
