So Long Everybody and Thanks For The Fish

The time has come for me to return home to Oman…. Its been over 3 years in Dubai and I have seen the impossible in many aspects happen…. It was interesting times…. Las Vegas on Prozac is the best way to describe it, but I long for a simpler life... away from the rat race rush and traffic somewhere where I can enjoy the outdoors more and see my friends and family when I choose to.

I guess I finally answered the question I posted 2 years on my first post ever… and its freedom 100%.

Thank you Dubai, you have thought many things that I will never forget. I will always come and visit this place and keep in touch with some great friends I met. So long everybody and thanks for the fish.

Hi Coloman, I believe you made the right decision. Sometimes I wish this could be my right decision too. Unfortunately, you don't always do as you'd like to..

All the best in your future endeavours, God Bless. And do continue to treat us to your views on the UAE CB.

I have not moved to Oman fully yet... I still got a few days of going back and forth.

People complain about traffic but its a joke, they are too pampered. Things are slow moving, but I love the fact that people are still nice and want talk and chat with each other, the net connection sucks..... Omantel needs to be taken over by Etisalat

I like the phrase when I heard it... the background of it is on wikipedia,_and_Thanks_for_All_the_Fish

"So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish (1984, ISBN 0-345-39183-7) is the fourth book of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series written by Douglas Adams. Its title is the message left by the dolphins when they departed Planet Earth just before it was demolished to make way for a hyperspatial express route, as described in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The phrase has since been adopted by some science fiction fans as a humorous way to say "goodbye" and a song of the same name was featured in the 2005 film adaptation of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy."

i knew i've seen this line from somewhere.. so thanks for giving me the insight of its origins.

i saw the hitch-hikers movie 2 years ago and it all makes sense now.

crap movie i have to admit, but brilliant line!!
