Real life experience of a dubaiite

27 07pmWed, 23 Jul 2008 16:18:29 +00002008-07-23T16:18:29+00:0004 2006

Cost of Living in UAE


Ahlan Dubai……. Welcome Dubai …….

With so many Indians hopping on to the next flight to Dubai (or U.A.E in general) to make their dreams happen……..  Life would turn out to be a shocker here.

The common problem for youth in India is that they want to
make too much money in too little time. They are willing to leave
India on the first offer from any country of repute (or even without repute) without considering the pros and cons. As for the millions of U.A.E aspirants in India
………. guys … hold on do a self assessment based on the under mentioned facts:-

· Just don’t multiply the AED salary by 11 and convert the
same into rupee earnings. That would be the first of the many mistakes you are likely to make. The conversion if at all should be done for savings and not gross earnings.


·
If you a Married Person,:  Consider the cost of family
accommodation in U.A.E and more importantly in
Dubai . The minimum requirement of a one BHK (bedroom, hall, and kitchen) flat would cost you a minimum of AED 5,000/- per month (not per annum,) any where in downtown Dubai
. Add a minimum of 15-25% annual increments in rent. Don’t expect the salaries to rise by even half that %.

· If you are smart enough to realize that you can look for
apartments outside Dubai (Sharjah, Ajman, RAK) to save AED 500 – 750 per month in rent, please allow yourself three to four hours for commuting every day (given the present traffic situation, which can only degrade with influx of millions of immigrants every year). Add that to a normal 10 hours day would mean you would end up spending around 14-15 hours a day on job……and you thought family life would be so much fun in Dubai.

· Be prepared to shell out AED 100/- for a routine check up at
doctors in UAE (that is if your company does not cover you with health insurance). If you are lucky you will not fall ill, but God forbid if you do, then you will have a big hole in your pocket.

· If you aren’t used to summers of north India and hail from
places like Shimla, then you are in for a treat of your lifetime.
Temperatures can run up to 50 C degrees on a normal sunny afternoon and such days are pretty regular. And did I mention the humidity levels of 95% ………I am sure I did.

· If you don’t have children you are lucky……bcos if you have
2-3 children going to school…… add at least AED 12,000 (per annum per child) to the cost of living in U.A.E

· You know that petrol here is cheaper and so would be the taxies ……..try taking a cab from airport to your hotel ……..the meter would touch AED 75-100/- before you will be able to make yourself comfortable in the Camry.
· You might have the fanciest of all cars available here, but
when it comes to parking the same, you might regret buying one. Imagine roaming around the streets of Dubai for 1 hour just to find a parking space……. ….alas. ….even that’s not free…….. . . don’t forget to display you’re parking ticket …….else a fine awaits you.
Parking fee comes to AED 2 per hour..  For all main roads Toll
collections also there!!!!!!!!

· Last but not the least of all woes is a triple call rate to
your loved ones in India. INR 30 per minute from U.A.E to India
……….whereas as INR 8 per minute from
India to UAE ……..it must give you an idea what awaits you in Dubai. Don’t you dare think you can use skype in Dubai ………Guys it’s banned and its illegal…..? …even sites like Orkut are banned here…….so much so for the communication.

So if you are fascinated by the growing number of glam malls in Dubai ……….the ever-changing skyline ………… all the hype and glory that surrounds this place ………..the bollywood stars flocking to Dubai every Thursday night ………the cute cars ……..the chic cafés
………BURJ DUBAI……. .BURJ AL ARAB ……..Dubai Marina; think twice buddies!!!!!! (Remember what is yours is what you take home after a lifetime in Dubai). No matter how long you stay here you will still be an expatriate …… no UAE passport ……… no home.

Trust me, there’s nothing like home!!!

CONECTION BETWEEN LOVE AND VODAFONE

27 03pmSat, 22 Mar 2008 18:50:18 +00002008-03-22T18:50:18+00:0006 2006

Very Shocking…..

This is a real story of a young college girl who passed away last month in
Chandigarh. Her name was Priya. She was hit by a truck.

She was working in a call center. She had a boy friend named Shankar.
Both of them were true lovers. They always talked on the phone.
You used to be never found without her without handphone. In fact she also
changed her cell connection from Airtel to Vodafone, so that both of them can
be on the same network, and save on the cost.

She used to spend half of the day talking with shankar.
Priya’s family knew about their relationship Shankar was very close to
Priya’s family as well. (Just imagine their
love) . Before she passed away she always told her friends “If I pass away
please burn me with my handphone” she also said the same thing to her
parents.

After her death, people cudnt carry her body, A lot of them tried to do so
but still cant everybody had tried to carry the body, the results were the
same. Eventually, they called a person known to one of their neighbours, who
can speak with the soul of dead person and who was a friend of her father.

He took a stick and started speaking to himself slowly.

After a few minutes, he said “this girl misses something here.” Then her
friends told that person about her intentions to burn her with her phone.
He then opened the grave box and place her phone and sim card inside the
casket. After that they tried to carry the body. It was then moved easily
and they then carried her into the van.

Al of us were shocked. Priya’s parents did not inform Shankar that Priya
had passed away.

After 2 weeks Shankar called Priya’s mom…..

Shankar :….”Aunty, I’m coming home today. Cook something nice for me.
Don’t tell Priya that I’m coming home today, I wanna surprise her.”
Her mother replied….. “You come home first, I wanna tell you something
very important.”

After he came, they told him the truth about Priya.
Shankar thinks
that they were playing a fool. He was laughing and said “don’t try to fool
me – tell Priya to come out, i have a gift for her. Please stop this
nonsense”.

Then they show him the original death certificate to him.
They gave him proof to make him believe. (Shankar started to sweat) He
said… “Its not true. We spoke yesterday. She still calls me.
Shankar was shaking.

Suddenly, Shankar’s phone rang. “see this is from Priya, see this….”
he showed the phone to priya’ family. all of them told him to answer. he
talked using the loudspeaker mode.

All of them heard his conversation.

Loud and clear, no cross lines, no humming.

It is the actual voice of Priya & there is no way others could use her sim
card since it is nailed inside the grave box

They were so shocked and asked
for the same person’s
(who can speak with the soul of deal persons) help again. He brought his
master to solve this matter.

He & his master

worked for 5 hours.

Then they discovered one thing which really shocked them…

Vodafone has the best coverage.

Where ever you go, our network follows!!!”

Don’t shout at me I am also looking for the person who has sent me this
mail….so what you can do…you should also forward this mail to all your
nears and dears…and enjoy…like i enjoyed.
 HAHAHAHAHA.

Ultimate truth….

Whenever I find the key to success, someone changes the lock.
To err is human; to forgive is not a COMPANY policy.

The road to success…….. is always under construction.

 

Alcohol doesn’t solve any problems, but if you think again, neither does Milk.

In order to get a Loan, you first need to prove that you don’t need it.

All the desirable things in life are illegal, expensive or fattening.

Since Light travels faster than Sound, people appear brighter before you hear

them speak.

Everyone has a scheme of getting rich….. Which never works?

If at first you don’t succeed…. Destroy all evidence that you ever tried.  

You can never determine which side of the bread to butter. If it falls down, it will always land on the buttered side.

Anything dropped on the floor will roll over to the most inaccessible corner.

As soon as you mention something…… if it is good, it is taken…. If it is bad, it happens.

He who has the gold, makes the rules —- Murphy’s golden rule.

If you come early, the bus is late. If you come late…… the bus is still late.

Once you have bought something, you will find the same item being sold somewhere else at a cheaper rate.

When in a queue, the other line always moves faster and the person in front of you will always have the most complex of transactions.

If you have paper, you don’t have a pen……. If you have a pen, you don’t have paper…… if you have both, no one call.

Especially for egg. Students—- 

 If you have bunked the class, the professor has taken attendance.

You will pick up maximum wrong numbers when on roaming.

Why is it that when you dial a wrong number, it is never busy?

 

All PMT buses are crowded.

Corollary—– PMT buses in opposite direction always go empty.

The door bell or your mobile will always ring when you are in the bathroom.

After a long wait for bus no.20, two 20 number buses will always pull in

together and the bus which you get in will be crowded than the other.

If your exam is tomorrow, there will be a power cut tonight.

The last person to be fired or quit is responsible for all the errors until another person is fired or quits.

 Irrespective of the direction of the wind, the smoke from the cigarette will always tend to go to the non-smoker
