Last Friday I had the pleasure of heading down to Sanaiya in Al Ain to visit my friend Ahmed on the opening evening of his new business – Black Pearl Car Care Centre. Friends who dropped in to give their good wishes were treated to ghawa (arabic coffee) with some lovely arabic food while he showed us some of the quality cleaning products he has sourced and talked about the polishing and detailing service his centre will offer. I asked him if he had a visitors book for us to write some good wishes in but he explained that this is a western custom, and in Arabia, the most important thing to show your support is to turn up and give your good wishes personally – I am so glad I went!
The Black Pearl technicians will take your car and clean and polish it until it sparkles like new; ideal if you are selling your car or even if you just want it deep cleaned and pristine before a special road trip – typically they will spend around 3 hours, sometimes more, on each vehicle. (I know, they would need three days to make my hard working offroad car pristine!)
Ahmed is a fine young man, kind and generous and most importantly, he speaks perfect English (and understands the Scot’s version too!), so I hope some of my readers will head on down there to check out his new business. It’s located on the edge of Sanaiya (GPS N24 12.055 E55 45.750), not far from the new Boutiq Mall and Lulu, so customers can drop off their car, do their shop and have a coffee while they wait. He also offers a pick up and delivery service throughout the Garden City.

Good luck Ahmed!
