The Life in Dubai

Over a thousand Filipinos arrive in Dubai every month. And why not?
Literally, the sun shines here all year round; prosperity is in the air; and it's a place where people have reasons to dream of waking up in the morning as millionaires or with kilos of gold on their lap!
Yun nga lang, habang hindi pa nangyayari yun, iba ang nakikita ng maraming Pinoy pagdilat nila sa umaga --- kurtina!
Betcha by golly wow! Paano ko ie-explain to fascinated Pinoys back home our living condition here!
Noong una akala ko isolated cases. But with the skyrocketing apartment rents in this City of Gold, such conditions are becoming the norm.

Sideways...sidesteps

Hindi yan dance step. That's the latest move ngayon sa mga sharing flats. Sa sobrang liit ng space, patagilid ang galaw. Kaya minsan, mga ka-flatmates, hindi na magkakitaan. "Hoy, where have you been, ba? Hindi ka na umuuwi sa flat!" Kasi nga lagi silang naka-sideview!
Warning: Smoking is dangerous to your room.
Hindi health reasons ang dahilan bakit bawal magyosi, no! Ang styrofoam kuya!
Yes, naunahan ng Pinoy ang IKEA sa innovation na yan --- Yes, styrofoam walls, styrofoam doors, styrofoam room. Di ba nga naman, styrofoam keeps you fresh! Para kang gulay, o kaya ice candy. Pero siguro mas feel mo minsan na 'tuna' ka, o di kaya 'sirena' kung feel mong si Claudine ka.
"Ate, di ba fire hazard yan?" "Anong fire ka dyan? Rent ang mas nakakamatay dito!"
"Illegal ang partions sa Dubai. At least ang styrofoam, pag nagkahulihan, mabilis sa baklasan. Gets mo?!!!" "Yes, Ate."
Therefore, 'no smoking': ang sirena baka maging daing!

Burj Al 'Cupboards'

Hindi lang Emaar Properties ang may 'K' na magtayo ng skyscrapers? Haven't we heard, the Philippines is a major supplier of architects in Dubai ? In other words, nasa dugo natin yan! Kaya ba ng Arabong gumawa ng rooms out of cupboards, luggages and shoe boxes?
Dati sa airport lang bida ang mga luggages, ngayon multi-purpose na: dividers na rin sila --- para ang isang kwarto maging lima!
Pataasan sila sa mga cupboards kasama ng mga shoe boxes na pinaka-antenna.
Siyempre, the taller the better --- you keep your neighbor's eyes away.

Now Showing

Pagpasok ko ng flat, akala ko sinehan, ang daming kurtina. Mga kuarto pala. Pero ang cute, cinematic!!! Parang barangay, complete with eskinitas. Kada bukas ng telon, parang movie --- sari-saring life. May natutulog, may nag-eemote, may naka-curlers, may nakasimangot. Sa panlimang kurtina, may nag-totong-its, sa pang-anim, may naggugupit.
Ang gandang movie, di ba? "Ang Pinoy sa Likod ng Kurtina!"




Quote

Paraisong Kurtina

Ayyy! Our Paraisong Kurtina. It can make you laugh, it can make you cry.
Be proud of our Paraisong Kurtina. It exists because we'd rather send our money home than spend more for our comfort. Within its walls, lies our desire for a little privacy, our groans, our tears, our dreams, our struggle for some little savings. My curtain says a lot. It says, "I have saved again, inay; I'll be able to send money next month."





Dream nyo pa bang magpunta o mag stay ng Dubai ???
 
Mag isip-isip...  :hihi: :hihi:

Gusto ko lang mag-tour doon, tingnan yung 'The Palms" and The Globe, and to see the7 star hotel nila. I forgot the name, AL Burj??

It is unfortunate that the Filipino workers live like above. What's important, I guess, is that it is only temporary - sacrifice lang for livelihood and income.
Hopefully, the living condition is more acceptable that i imagined.

Despite of the above mentioned negativities, yes, I would still want to stay here in Dubai.

But all of those mentioned above are very true, pero, since may goal tayo kaya tayo nangingibang bansa, we have to sacrifice now to save enough so we can buy our future.  Totoo, mahal ang lahat dito sa Dubai specially ang bahay, that's why we resort to partitition and bed space lang, but who cares, as long as may naiipon, yun lang ang bottom line, depende pa rin sa OFW yan kung paano niya hahawakan ang pera at palalaguin, sa akin kasi, hindi habang buhay nandito sa abroad, kailangan kung ano yung goal mo bago pumunta ng abroad, doon ka lang naka focus, hindi dapat ma tempt sa mga luho na nasa paligid, who doesnt want to indulge their cravings? but then again, we always go back to our goal...our future, our retirement, we have to save enough to afford it.

I once visited Dubai two years back for a business assignment from here in Saudi, i could only hear horror stories...at mababasa mo din sa mga diaryo ang exploitation ng mga workers, hindi lang pinoy, kundi maging ibang mga asean countries...

What pains me more, eh yong paghihirap ng ating mga kababayan na gawa din ng isa pa nating kababayan...:fight1:

recently lang nabasa ko na ipagbabawal na daw sharing set-up sa mga flats or rooms, I just don't know how true???, if true, naku kawawa naman mga kababayan natin...

Doble ingat lang po mga kababayan ko... :hello:

cheers... :cool2:

Ako, hindi na muna siguro, maliban na lang kung napaka-lucrative ng offer. Marami rin naman opportunity dito sa Pinas kung marunong ka lang maghanap. At saka, balita ko mataas daw ang inflation rate dyan sa Dubai. Syempre, kapag mataas ang inflation rate, mahal din bilihin. Baka more than half ng kikitain ay mapupunta lang sa expenses, tapos kapag kino-compute mo na yun net income mo...lalabas na halos parehas lang dito sa Pinas. Naku!!! Di pa naman yan katulad ng pumunta ng probinsya na kung ayaw mo na, mag-iimpake ka na lang at sasakay ng Bus, Barko or Eroplano para umuwi.

dubai is really beautiful, lalo na sa gabi pag nasa plane ka pa lang habang papalapag ito, napakaraming ilaw makikita mo...at napakaganda, sa umaga you will be amazed of thier tall and beautiful buildings and also those ongoing building constructions, sa totoo lng kahit san ka lumingon ay may roong ginagawang buildings. wow! imagine 70% of tower cranes in the world is in dubai..grabe no! ang problema ay pag nag wo work ka na, although i worked with one of the big company based in dubai, kaya di ko masyado problema salary and tirahan ko nun. ang naaawa ako ay dun sa karamihan ng na meet ko na mga pinoys na 1200 dirhams ang sinasahod, kaya naman ang kanilang mga bahay ay tulad ng mababasa mo sa umpisa, nakadalaw din ako sa mga kabayan natin na ganito ang living conditions...
at lalo na po pag traffic, kapag ikaw ay ordinaryong employee na nag bu-bus, kawawa ka. kasi siksikan at agawan sa bus, pag suwerte mo na nakauna ka ay para naman kayong sardinas sa loob ng bus, and guess what sino naka paligid sa iyo...mga indiano! mga galing sa construction works, kaya ang amoy...pero wag kang mag alala..masasanay ka din dun. mag ta-taxi ka? hehe agawan din po...
pero bilib pa rin ako sa mga kabayan natin, cge lang basta marating ang pangarap...tulad ba ng movie na dubai na ang bida ay si aga..(sabi nila malayo daw ito sa katotohanan)

pinoy..bayani ka talaga..lalo na sa iyong mga pamilya.. :applause:

Awa ng Diyos, ng panahong nasa Middle East ako ay pabahay at pa kotse ako ng kumpanya. Pero syempre, wala pa internet panahong yun kaya ang palipas oras ko ay makipag socialan sa mga kabayan kahit sinuman at saan man sila.

Sa Saudi ang di ko malimutan eh yung isang kababayan natin na nag-iisang pinoy sa villa nila na puro mga Indian at Pakistano. So, pag oras na ng lutuan ay na susuffocate siya sa tindi ng amoy ng niluluto nila. Kaya basta oras ng lutuan ay tumutuloy siya sa bahay ko para maka-iwas sa amoy ng mga curry nila. Isang araw ay me dumating siyang kabigan at me pasalubong siyang tuyo at mga daing. Sa kasabikan niya ay nakisabay siya magprito ng tuyo sa kanilang kitchen. Aba, kung anu-ano raw ang pinagsasabi ng mga kasamahan niya kesyo amoy bulok daw ang baho kaya mula noon basta me tuyo, sunod sunod niya niluluto para daw maka ganti siya.

Nung ma-assign ako sa Dubai kokonti pa lang ang matataas na building sa Deira at ang pinakamalaking shopping mall noon ay yung Al-Ghurair.
Malaki na raw ipinagbago ng Dubai and I'm looking forward for a short visit someday soon. At kung kaya ko pa at me kukuha sa akin para magtrabaho eh available ako para madagdagan pa ang savings for investment. Meantime dito muna ako sa aking pinakamagandang kaparalan kahit TNT.

Mabuti na me siguradong kita sa Dubai kesa nakatambay sa pinas di ba mga kakosa ? Yun nga lang, tayo mga OFW ang workhorse ng mga nasa Pilipinas. Tapos tax dito tax doon para maipon ang taxpayer's money para kurakutin ng mga magagaling. Ang pakunswelo tatawagin tayong mga gagong bayani  :oops: typograhical error po BAGONG BAYANI pala.
