In general the locals business owners & Govt functionaries believe ASIAN & ARABIC speaking non-locals are 2nd tier workers no matter how hard working honest dedicated they are but never trusted as ‘HONEST’ and never placed at final decisive positions.

The mall is not a play ground. It is been observed, noticed and reported in media that parents visiting a mall with children let them unleashed free as if in a play ground.
While mall security is vigilant and pay close attention to roaming children it is responsibility of parents to be careful vigilant and responsible for their children.
The shop attendants are not there to babysit your child while you shop or have coffee with your friends. Many a time, the children get tired and are brought to the security guards by the attendants because the parents have just left them there. It is wrong
There have been several instances where a child runs up on to an escalator the wrong way and someone has to pull them off. Many times, these children shout out to their parents who smile back proudly as though it is a feat. It is extremely dangerous and a drop from that height can also result in death
Remember a rowdy un-civilized child is mirror of your training. How your child behave, socialise and eat is reflection of your training and upbringing as a parent. Mannerism in a child is reflection of parents wisdom.
Exercise restraint over your children and remain vigilant about their activities in public places — it’s better to be safe than sorry

The Dubai Nobody Tells You About
Dubai is the land of the biggest, tallest, longest, widest, richest, fanciest, fastest…everything is ….est of the world.
They have the tallest residential towers in the world, the tallest restaurant in the world, the largest number of South Indians in the world, the highest crane operator in the world.
If it does not grow in Dubai , they’ ll make it artificially – artificial ski slopes, artificial islands, artificial oasis, coconut trees and lawns, artificial beaches, artificial economy.
Indians especially love it here because of the dirham-to-rupee value. Pakistanis adore it.
The Egyptians come here because there is nothing to do in Egypt . No more pyramids to build either.
The Filipinos come here because they have no choice; theres nothing back home, not even dogs – they’ve been eaten up.
The Brits come here coz they have forgotten what it is to enjoy 3 meals a day in UK and nobody employes them there for the crap they give, and its TAX free !
The Lebanese come here to buy cars, dress to kill, wear Peter Pan shoes 10 sizes bigger than their feet, put 1 kg of gel on their heads and give everyone ball talk. They’ll buy a 1980s Merc or BMW for 10k dirhams and drive the car like they’re sitting in the rear passenger seat, stretching their arms all the way to the steering wheel, giving you the piercing bald eagle look.
Russian girls come here for “fun”.
The Bangladeshis come here to serve you when you honk outside a Baklava (shop), but would not even look at you if you park and go inside to pickup yourself.
Now according to the government Dubai is Tax free.
Of course, that is true. You only have to pay for the visa, medical, sponsor, insurance, resident ID, Opening a bank account or even closing an account, Municipality, Sewerage, attestation of papers, translation of papers, driving license papers, lessons, Car license, testing, and …. but the salary is Tax Free.
Only, there is a Pay and Park scheme with 5000 parking lots, and 500,000 cars in the city, so where the hell do you park? And you are fined for wrong parking.
Toll has been introduced on many roads. You can avoid the toll tax by using alternative routes, but you’ll end up in a traffic jam because everyone is trying to avoid the toll tax.
If you have any government related work like medicals for visa or immigration, you have 2 options – Standard and Urgent Procedure. Standard takes 15 days and Urgent takes 2 days. The difference is 30 to 40-odd dirhams. Everyone goes for the urgent option and the Dubai government makes money, urgently.
If you switch jobs you get a work ban and to lift the ban you pay a huge penalty.
In Dubai , without a car you are paralyzed (you dont even get jobs if you dont have a car). But you ‘ll get your license in attempts ranging from 2 to 20. Each time you fail you have paid fees for Driving classes & Driving Tests, which are 1000-odd dirhams. Imagine the money RTA makes.
Most of the expats live alone with families back home. So they spend much on phone calls. And call charges from Dubai are high.
Another odd thing about Dubai – no matter where you go or who you meet, you take down phone numbers. Everybody has everybody’s number in Dubai . And everyone has a Visiting Card, whether you are a bootlegger, a masseuse, a hooker, a car cleaner, a watchman or a pizza delivery boy. Everyone knocks around with lots of cards in his or her wallet and one card in the palm. So whenever you shake hands with anyone in Dubai and let go, you end up with a visiting card in your palm.
If you’re walking on the road and you ask someone the time, he’ll tell you 10:30, give you his card and say, I have new and second-hand watches.
At a restaurant when you are leaving they’ll say Here is my card, call us for home delivery.
If you’re below your building, you’ll meet those Chinese chicks giving you their cards, saying, Call us if you want DVDs.
If you’re standing at a bus stop, an expat will pull over in his 1980 Toyota Corolla, give you his card and say, If you want Pick-up & Drop Service, call me.
Dubai has amusing-looking buildings. Some have holes in them, some have giant balls on them, some look like aeroplanes, some look like sail boats, and, all of them reach into space with your window right in front of the moon.
Everyone in Dubai goes to malls. Not necessarily to shop. To beat the heat, go to a mall; business meeting, go to a mall; getting bored, go to a mall; want to take a leak or dump, go to a mall; want to do lukhagiri (little in your pocket, little in your mind), go to a mall.
If you want to go for a picnic go to a mall.
Some South Indians go home to Kerala, get married, and then come to a Dubai Mall for their honeymoon.
THAT…MY FRIENDS…..IS…….. DOO-BAI
