Re: Why Do You Guys Like Dubai?

Dubai is "different", so you should prepare yourself for a sort of culture shock. You are right in saying it does not have a cohesive culture; in fact it does not really have a culture....yet. People here are not cold, they are indifferent. They stay in their own little circles, usually de...

Re: Why Do You Guys Like Dubai?

lonelyndubai , I am a Canadian of Pakistani origin! BTW, I dont live or work in Dubai anymore. By the end of my 8 years there, I was getting comfortably numb, and knew I had to get out or fade away in my cocoon.

Am I to assume you have now returned to Canada? Yes. BTW, the only thing I bake is a Salmon! Yummy.

The culture shock that I mentioned earlier, follows you to your workplace. ...

Which is the Road to Dubai?

There was once a fork in the road. Well, it is probably still there. Isn't there always one? Even in Life? Wish there were not that many 'forks in the road'. Sometimes we take the wrong one! Sometimes, that one just turns out to be the one that really mattered. Has that ever happened to you? But I d...

From your recent experience (as described by you above) my advice would be: enjoy the ride while it lasts, but be prepared for the fall.

Empathy: The Human Connection to Patient Care.

Here is something that I found so touching, and want to share with you.
In the rush and bustle of our lives, we tend to forget that there are "other" people with thier own problems in their own individual worlds.
Spare a thought for them.
