Pyjama Ras Al Khaima


The head of the emirate's personnel department was quoted as saying that large numbers of civil servants were wearing sleeping clothes and pyjamas.

Starting on 1 January 2007, civil servants in the emirate will have to wear national dress - a long white robe for men and the black abaya for women.

Expatriates will be required to wear suits and ties.
Gulf News:

He stressed that the emirate's employees will have no room to bypass the new dress code, adding that the emirate's Government aims to impose the new uniform to preserve the beautification of the various departments and raise standards.

Here's the original Pyjamarama by Roxy Music:

Couldn't sleep a wink last night
Oh how i´d love to hold you tight
They say you have a secret life
Made sacrifice your key to paradise
Never mind, take the world by storm
Just boogaloo a rhapsody divine
Take a sweet girl just like you
How nice if only we could bill and coo
I may seem a fool to you for ev´rything I say or think or do
How could I apologise for all those lies
The world may keeps us far apart but up in heaven, angel
You can have my heart
Diamonds may be your best friend
But like laughter after tears
I´ll follow you to the end
