Yes Madiha, even if you have an iqama, as per Labour Law, you are not allowed to work, however, its best that you find a job in some international school, they will hire you without your iqama!

How do I scan the threads? :p Never been too sites like these before.

You go to the KSA screen in the EB ( You put your finger on the wheel on your mouse and slowly pull your finger towards yourself (down). While doing this, you read the list of topic subjects. When you get to the one that mentions Pinoy and basketball (page 2), you click on it and read it. VOILA!

adnanhashmi posted on the thread which CAR is good to lease from the bank on the Riyadh forum

Leasing a car from bank is never a good option. High interset rate and that also without having ownership in your name. It's better to get a cash loan from bank and get the car. Anyways, this topic has been discussed many times. Please use google custom search box.

Cash loan from bank...good option, but would you confirm if the interest rate will be low in this case?

There are quite a few Filipinos in the Batha area of town - just go hang out at the Manila Plaza. I am sure you have coworkers you can hang out with. Get out of your room - walk around Batha - people watching in Batha can be pretty hilarious. Good luck man!!

Yeah, generally its really a good programme to gain knowledge of how to be a real crook :lol:

We watch that show pretty often as well. I'm always amazed at what people try to sneak in their luggage.

adnanhashmi posted on the thread Looking forward to buy an HR Sysytem on the Riyadh forum

Agreed strongly with this, could you please get me one of the best HR system that are being used in your organization and also the contact number of the company who would provide the source code?

One main factor not to be ignored here. Saudi has a unique HR system implemented which is like nowhere in the world. The bonuses, overtimes, accomo; and above all Govt Hijri system to align with (Iqama expiry, exit re-entry visas etc). Big corporates are using highly customized versions of SAP and Oracle and SMEs are making use of locally (tailor-made) applications. Off-shelf applications, fat chance they'll fit in.

None of the plans of a get together works out in this form ever, the irony is you still see people coming up with this topic every now and then and end up leaving negative comments.
