Exactly what i meant, i know you lebanese and you will end up spending more than you're making. WITH NO OFFENCE, A PHILIPPINO OR INDIAN OR ANY ONE FROM ASIA WILL BE SAVING MORE THAN 2000 per month living in a bedroom, but i dont think you will. you will meet the lebanese here and you will go out twice a week and you will spend all you money, if you can definetly asure yourself that you will live the quiet life than go for it

It all depends amer. If you are into night life (going to clubs and bars) then you won't survive for long. If you can settle for quiet evenings with friends in coffee shops, then go for it. You need the experience. In a couple of years you can get far better package.

No its not a good offer, but at the same time, with no experience its hard to get a better offer. you will end up spending the whole amount with still 1 week left to go of each month. Take my advice, stay in lebanon, get at least two years experience and then look for a job in the gulf, i know its hard to find a job there and the situation its that rosy but it beats coming here and wanting to go back once your contract expires.
