Home Away from Home

Before I retire and call it a day - I cleaned, washed, cooked and watched TV - tough day huh. I decided to put up some photos of my Dubai pad. The company generously provides accommodation for all its crew, all of which looks slightly different from another (ehem, both the apartments and the crew), located in several areas in Dubai.



This is my second home in Dubai. First one was hardly home, it was just a huge room. Friends and family who heard about my grunts on the previous one, knew why I moved (I am still hesitating putting up the nasty photos) but the filthiness of the previous apartment was a blessing in disguise... I wouldn't have moved, it was great location - but glad I did cos I live with really nice people around me now. When I first moved in it was brand new. Having occupied the first room I made a request at the respective department to allocate my Singaporean friend to the other room - haha whether she liked it or not, now I hope she does!

Enjoy the photos. Any suggestions on home decor - not about tidying the room please - will be happily considered!

Hi... I just happened by your blog when trying to find a jazz place in Dubai - blue bar. Been going through your blog periodically, i concurred the sentiments you mentioned when starting the blog; being new to Dubai myself and hitting that new bend in life... i love your verve and vocabulary; and it looks like you're having fun with your life and work, commendable.

Never made it to blue bar though! :) The inherent annonymity of this platform probably makes things easier for the writer so what i ask ahead of this may categorize me in the stalker area, but if you feel up to it maybe you could email me sometime... adnankkhan@hotmail.com

SORRY, didn't mean to step on toes or offend; though i was hoping he was like a brother!! :) I wasn't asking you out either... Just wanted to keep in touch, it's hard to meet smart people in Dubai. Even though there are so many cultures here i've never felt segregation so much, or ever actually... i moved here from California, we get along with everybody there :)... and, it couldn't have hurt to know someone on a flight crew... i have to go to china often these days, selfish i know.

Good to see there's no reluctance nor recluse here - your comments are all welcomed!

Thank you for reading my blog and I hope you find something to like about Dubai, Adnan. Go to Blue Bar on Thursday and Friday evenings when the live band plays, it's nice. As for China, doubt I'll be visiting very often everything depends on roster here. And if you're ever in Singapore look up the people posting here they are the best friends anyone can have! ;)

Reluctant and Recluse said...

would i win any points with 'fancy feast' or do you prefer 'meow mix'?? you know cats ask for it by name!

Zul said...

oh....i want chicken i want liver.. meow mix meow mix i want it delivered....I trust Dr Evil taste... Bring the fancy feast only for SAFFI and not ELLIOT .. ok mayb OSCAR..but def not ELLIOT. hence i`m showing how bias we are towards the cats. heh

I also think Anonymous is Jason cos he mentioned Sugar Roll. My first guess was Dave though.

By the way, if you're new here and you don't understand half the things the folks here are saying, go to: http://fastandfurry.blogspot.com
