#Mladen on Feb 17, 2012 :
farnam, regarding education fee's perhaps even separate section will be enabled to cover that issue since it's not covered at the moment.

healthcare section covers estimation of the price.

tennis court price covered is WITHOUT coach.
#farnam on Feb 17, 2012 :
please consider my comments as follow:
1- education fee shall be included because it is not free and schools in the UAE are very expensive.
2- healthcare is expensive also and it is not free
3-the average salary for a single person with a normal life can be a 10000 AED or 3000 USD.
4- one hour tennis court with coach in the UAE is 120 AED or 40 USD per hour
