How to renew dependent residence visa using GDRFA Mobile App

Transacting with Dubai Immigration has never been easier. With the GDRFA Mobile App, you even have the option to not visit immigration office in person.

Blake’s visa will expire by last week of December 2017. Since we are traveling (Yippee!!) for the holiday season, I have to renew her visa earlier to ensure that the new visa is ready before we leave.

Applying for her visa renewal the traditional way is not first option since I have used up all of my leave credits. I remembered that there is a mobile app from Dubai Immigration — the GDRFA Mobile App. 

Download and Install the GDRFA Mobile App

Search for GDRFA Dubai in App Store for iPhone and Google Play Store for Android. Download and install. Open the app after installation. (Photos used are from an Android phone)

I bought my first New TV at 40

I have just reached 40 a few months back and would you believe that it is my first time to buy a new TV?

Hand me downs

When we were kids, it’s our parents who buys stuff for us. That will continue for as long as you live with your parents and until your parents earn more than you do and sometime even when not. Well, in a way that was not the case for me.

Tech Review: Oneplus 3 The Flagship Killer

This is my review of the device dubbed as a “Flagship Killer” the Oneplus 3

What is Oneplus?

According their website, “It all started in the winter of 2013 with a simple, bold idea: make a better phone“.

“But, not just a better phone – a better way of doing things. A new kind of tech company that works hand in hand with users to do something amazing, something meaningful.” Read more

We got a Mac but still, I’m a PC

If you think the title grammatically wrong, Google the term I’m a PC.

I was exposed to IT at a young age, starting from good old Nintendo Game and Watch to Atari, Family Computer and Brick games.

It all started with a Big Bang

As many of you already know, we went to Switzerland last year. When we decided to go there I have only one place in mind that I have to go to. Any geeks like me would want to go to CERN.

How I Got my 10 year old desktop to perform like new

THE DESKTOP

From the title of this post, you may have guessed that its a bit techie, well, you’re not wrong. I will try to narrate my experience in refurbishing my computer in less techie way.

So I have an old desktop. Many would say why not just get a new one? This PC happens to be one that I built on my own back when building PCs was more than just a hobby for me. Other than that, it still serves the purpose. Read more

From Windows Mobile to Windows 10 Mobile

I was first introduced to smart phones when I attended a Microsoft user conference a long, long time ago. The moment I saw the demo I said to myself this is the future of computing and indeed it was.

My first smart phone was an I-mate SP2 which was a gift from S, up until now she’s been looking out for the same expression that she saw in me when I saw her gift. Well, as they say, you never forget your first.

APP Review: Ahlam

Ahlam
 
A few weeks ago, I was contacted to review the book app called “Ahlam”.  I wasn’t sure how I can review the app because it is in Arabic. (I know, I know … I’ve been here 12 years and I still haven’t learned the language. But hey, I know Marhaba! πŸ™‚ ) Anyway, I took it as a challenge and I won’t be the one to review it anyway. B is going to review it, technically. Right?
