Canadian Community

Dear all Canadian in Riyadh.
My name is Anas, i have been here for 2 months now and in need for some good company.
i have tried to find a community for Canadians for a while but did not find one.
after a long useless search, I decided to try to create one.
so what i'm trying to say that i'm trying to get as many Canadians as possible together to have a community of our own.
if any one is interested please let me know because i have no idea how to do this kinda thing here.

Woooo Canucks unite!

Tim Hortons! Poutine!

I've only been here a month, but it won't hurt to know more Canadians in KSA/Riyadh!

-Eric

Poutine ftw!

Just in case you guys ever make it to Dubai - there is a Tim Hortons in the Dubai Marina area!! :)

YAAAAAY...already have two Canadians
well, what do you guys think we should do....
i have Timmy's coffee here with me, so if anyone misses the taste of home, is welcome for a cup of coffee.
(you can message me for my no.)
cheers

dear houstonian
thank a lot for the info...that is actually where i got the coffee from,
and as I understand there are five branches there now.( my sister lives there :))

hopefully i'll be able to get some more before i run out of my sweet Timmy's

thanks again for trying to help us feel more like home

I can probably ask my friend in Abu Dhabi to pick some up for me when he goes to Dubai. :D

I know another Canadian, but she's on vacation until late March.

my parents lived close to Square one too, copernicus Dr

maybe we went to the same schools or smth.

i also spent a year in St.Catharines

i had friends from North York too ( but i have no idea where though).

are you coming to Riyadh any time so, maybe you can join us..

okay then guys thursday it is......
when and where???

I'll be touring the Riyadh Gallery mall in the afternoon-evening time (around 4PM-ish). First time visiting that mall and going on company chartered bus. (Me being cheap on taxi, hah)
So, how about somewhere there?

that will be great....but i do not know where that mall is though..
can you give me directions or smth.
i could even pick you up if you need to (i have a car :) )

Thanks for the offer man, but I live pretty far out in exit 8. You'd be making two trips!

You can use this to Google Map: Riyadh Gallery, King Fahd, Riyadh 12262, Saudi Arabia.

It's on the corner of King Fahad Rd. and Imam Saud bin Abdulaziz Branch Rd.

thanx, i got the directions..
so we will meet around 4.
looking forward to it .

are you still in ??

Will I be allowed into the mall as a single guy?

i think so..
if not...we would not be allowed too...lol

actually i checked their website, and it doesn't say that singles are banned. it only has a poll on if they should ban singles at night...
either way we are okay i guess.

I'll try to come but I might not be done with work by then. I'll let you know

Looks like I won't be able to make it tonight. Sorry guys! Hopefully next time

Riyadh Gallery mall is reserved for families on Thursdays and Fridays. However, I strongly doubt they'll consider stopping westeners from entering.

Can you give a little bit of a teaser on what this event is about?  That might help folks in deciding whether they want to join in or not.

get to gathering , where every one gathers in one place  in a restaurant or coffee shop etc.
