I traveled To Dubai

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.

    • thats cool and you know that new things always fascinate us. Exploring is an awesome thing. I dont own my culture and politics but I do own my thoughts 🙂 so thanks for being interested in my thoughts. Nice to meet you. Where are you from?

    • yeah one week but got big experience. I cant explained all what I learned and what happened to me because I’m bounded. By the way adventures should be little, its good for us 🙂

  2. Did you cook your famous egg when you had to feed yourself? 😉 I believe everything happens for a reason – this trip, the student visa … someone upstairs has a different plan for you. Allah is up to something. Isn’t it exciting? We’ll see what your ‘ever after’ turns out to be! 🙂

    • aw thanks a Deba 🙂 you really made my day, yeah He has a plan which would be best for me but for now I’ve spent lots of my father’s and relatives’ money to make my future. That sucks :(. That wasnt a big deal if I did that with my own money. I’ll do my best to not disappoint ya 🙂
