Around 11 months ago on 22th November 2011 I was on Dubai airport to live and work but unfortunately or fortunately I came back to my homeland country Pakistan right after one week on 29th November 2011. I was so excited and pleased when I got there. A new world, people I never seen or met before.
My purpose was to work and live there in Dubai, U.A.E and so I got a job in Al-Bustan Residence & Centre with help of my second cousin. But that wasn’t as I expected things.
My salary was 700 U.A.E Dirham per month which is equal to 190 USD. Accommodation and two time breakfast and lunch were free at the hotel cafe. I had to cook or eat dinner with my own money from 190 USD. On holidays I had to care of my breakfasts, lunches and dinners myself from the paid salary. So that wasn’t a nice package for me.
Duty hours were 10, from 8 A.M to 6 P.M and I used to wake up right at 6:30 A.M with alarm clock because I had to get ready and catch company bus at 7:20 A.M from residence place Sonapur. Every morning shave, bath and tooth pasting was must.
We used to reach before 8 and taking breakfast, attendance and then reporting at Housekeeping office. I was cleaner in Housekeeping department. We take lunch in the hotel during duty hours then after completion of given tasks we reach the hotel bus at 6:30 P.M to heading towards accommodation place at Sonapur.
I couldn’t take pics of me and Dubai because I had no camera even not a cell phone so I’ve just two pics when I was at Dubai International Airport to leave Dubai.
