12 things that nobody in Dubai can agree on

Published

on

1. Whether living on The Palm Jumeirah is #goals or the worst idea ever.
50% of people see it as peak Dubai living, and the rest just can’t tolerate the traffic.

2. If ordering food is actually cheaper than cooking.
This is usually dependant on which supermarket chain is closest to your flat/villa… and how much you love Zaatar w Zeit.

3. Friday brunch.
For some, the idea of going out at 12pm on a Friday is a slow form of torture. For others, it’s a weekly ritual that they never tire of.

4. Air-conditioning levels.
Who is more annoying – that woman in the office who wants the A/C at sub-Arctic levels so that you have to wear ski socks and a blanket at your desk, or the guy who turns it off completely and refuses to put it back on until beads of sweat are rolling down your face?

5. Rock Bottoms.
Never, in the history of bars, has one establishment been so polarising. Some people seem to think it’s a great idea after every single brunch, while others would rather spend their evening stuck in traffic than set foot inside Rocky B’s.

6. Whether going to Dragon Mart is ever a good idea.
For some, it typifies a wasted day looking at stuff they will never find a use for, while for others it’s the best place to find the illuminated toothpick they’ve always wanted.

7. Desert safaris.
There are people who go on a desert safari every single time they have a visitor… There are others who have been here a decade and have refused to go on any group-based activity.

8. The weather.
This is either the reason expats move to Dubai or the reason they leave.

9. Whether calling Dubai by a nickname is endearing or the most annoying thing ever.
Dubs’, ‘Dubbers’, ‘The Sandpit’, ‘Doobz’.

10. Instagramming food.
There are two types of people in Dubai – people who Instagram every single thing they eat, and the people who watch them judging.

11. Whether getting the metro down Sheikh Zayed Road at rush hour is quicker than driving.
This one is a particularly common discussion amongst married couples.

12. Whether you can ever have too many pictures of the Burj Khalifa.
You either take a picture ever time you go past, even though you’ve lived here for 10 years, or you’ve stopped reaching for your phone altogether.
