Random Report From Dubai

Hello everyone, how's Malaysia now days? Got raining? Here no rain since summer and the weather still very hot (44-45 degree c) at day time and very humid during night time. I'm here for working and not for vacation. I have to work 7 days a week and will stay at here for at least 1 month long.

I'm now staying in Dubai after 2 nights staying in Abu Dhabi. Both places got it's unique lifestyles. Abu Dhabi is the capitol in UAE (United Arab Emirates) and Dubai is the most develop state in UAE.

The time different in UAE is +4 GMT compare to Malaysia is +8 GMT. I still adjusting my body time here such as sleeping and eating. When evening I can feel very tired because Malaysia time is already late night. The expenses here are very expensive, I really not afford to buy anything here.

Now let me share with you all some pictures I taken during this few days in this desert world...

This is inside Abu Dhabi's Airport, on my way to immigration counter to check my passport and collect my luggage. The arch looks so nice.

The largest mosque in the world located in Abu Dhabi.

My office's window view, can see the 7 stars hotel in Dubai. This office just for temporary use until the site project office is complete then we'll move to site office.

In the highway, their road construction really world class standard, I don't feel bumpy at all from Abu Dhabi to Dubai (more than 100km). Anyway, the accident rates here is very high too, I can see car accidents everyday.

Mall of Emirates, this is the one mall with the indoor ski, I still no time to discover inside.

Massive development

Right now I'm staying at Al Murooj Rotana Hotel & Suites in Dubai, I wonder why my bosses don't want to stay there, they asked me and another 2 colleagues to stay there. I tell you, it's a 5 stars standard suites, once we entered the suite, we all were so amazed. Anyway, it's under company, I will never afford to stay in this kind of place. Coming here is like live like a king but work like a slave... haha!

Imagine, the internet connection in this Hotel & Suites is not free! The charges is UAD25 that mean about RM25 per hour! So now I just can online during working hour.

The living hall

Dining and study corner

My room

Front view with massive construction

Swimming pool just right infront, but we don't see anyone swim there

Burj Dubai, the tallest building in the world still under construction, it just opposite of the suites I stay now.

I Miss Malaysia!!!

40++ degree i wanna pengsan! 7 days a week! double pengsan!

clement said...

may said...

Dubai looks cool. reminds me a little of Beijing with all the construction going on, though. Internet access is not free in Singapore hotels either, not sure about KL ones.

send me a postcard please... ;-)

narrowband said...

WOW you're staying at some future 'prime' location (maybe it is already, now?). The tallest building in the world is truly a superb engineering feat.

Oh you have to work 7 days, that sucks but then it's the norm I guess, alot of my seniors work 7 days too when they're overseas! It's all about the deadline, nothing else~!

PurpLe~MuShRooM said...

Woahh... Dubai is really something, eh. The Burj Dubai is really awesome. I heard that no other building is ever gonna beat that. Guess it will be holding the record for a very, very long time.

I like the saying: Live like a king, but work like a slave. Good one. Haha!

Take care dude!

Chen said...

Kenny Ng said...

FL Sam said...

Wow. Really nice suite and the development in Dubai is crazy. Malaysia cannot compared to them.

So big suite, I come an visit and stay there. Otherwise I cannot afford. :) said...

Can ask company to delay your flight back, so you can walk around for 2 days?

erinalaw said...

see.......... another good place for you to stay. Not that bad mah. But food and weather ...... i can understand how u are going to feel lor. My hubby read ur blog and found out you are in Dubai and he ask me to tell you 'chok nei hoh wan' - coz he had been there so many time and everytime got to stay there few weeks.

a^ben said...

great that we actually can see some pictures of other places overseas` how's the lifestyle? more busy than kl?

Kenny Ng said...

Is like that lor, give u nice place to stay and expect u to work 10x harder.

[fl sam]
Come come... but I dun have transport wor... how?

They won't, they expect u once landing to Malaysia u must get to work!

Thanks to ur hubby's advice. Anyway, I'm not alone here, dun worry.

Of course more hectic than KL. Office hour work, back to hotel also work, sleep also think of work. U say leh?
