Online shopping solutions for Ruwais

| Ruwais, UAE | September 16, 2014

If you are living in Ruwais and you love online shopping, you will have a hard time getting your packages delivered to your door step. For example souq.com, Carrefouruae.com or SharafDG.com will not ship to Ruwais, because it is very far from Abu Dhabi (roughly 200 km+). But that is not going to stop us.

In order to take advantage of the online deals you have 3 choices:

1. Signup for Shop and Ship service from Aramex. Through this service you can get packages delivered to Ruwais from all over the world at an additional cost. Charges depend from where you get your package delivered from (USA, Europe, China, India, UAE) and how much the package weighs. I strongly do not recommend this when buying heavy home electronics (TV, fridges, washing machines)

2. Drive to Abu Dhabi to personally collect your packages from the couriers’ office. Here are a couple of courier offices where you can collect your online shopping packages.

This is the Aramex new office (on the old airport road / in the al jazira stadium area)

Tawam from Etisalat – Dual Sim Cards Service

| Ruwais, UAE | September 14, 2014

Transform your mobile fight TO WORK TOGETHER FOR YOU

  FROM > sim-cards-fight >  TO > sim-cards-unite

What is Tawam ?

The Emirates Telecommunications Corporation (Etisalat) has introduced a new product called Tawam, a dual SIM cards system that allows two mobile phones to operate with the same number.

Why  I need it ?

Mostly all people working at Ruwais industrial area are not allowed to carry phone with Camera and GPS, so most of people use very basic mobile while on duty. But all Ruwaisian are well educated and technically sound persons. They  have immense love for smartphones, so they keep smartphones also for off duty uses. This new feature is of particular benefit to subscribers that have two mobile phone such as a car phone of different models for work and home. Until now, they either needed two different numbers or had to swap the SIM card from phone to phone whenever they changed phones.

How I can tap benefit from this Technology ?

Oasis Water Home Delivery at Special Price

| Ruwais | August 2, 2014

oasis-come2life-logo

Oasis Water Company Logo

In the following article i will mention how you can get Oasis water delivered to your Ruwais Housing Complex home at special ADNOC prices.

I will focus in my introduction on the big 5 Gallon (~19 Liters) Water bottles since i know that most of us, Ruwais residents, have and use water dispensers for 5 Gallon Water bottles. Depending on where you get the water bottles you could be saving or losing money. For example my nearest home delivery shop charges me 9 AED per bottle with an extra 1 dirham (tip) for the delivery boy. It s convenient and cheap when it comes to the cost divided per liter. But, lately, my home delivery shop has been “forgetting” to bring me the 5 Gallon Bottle of water unless i call them twice, so i have decided to try a different supplier and save money in the process.

In case you have missed the announcement in January or February regarding “Supply of bottled water”, i will remind you. There is an agreement between ADNOC and its group of companies with Oasis Pure Water LLC.
