So far, there are some interesting and relevant things that I have learned while working and living here in Abu Dhabi:

  1. 1 United Arab Emirates dirham = 11.6257739 Philippine pesos
  2. Regardless of how grotesque and smelly other nationalities are, disgustingly they are all your “FRIEND”.
  3. You will bleed to death just to communicate with other people.
  4. “AIWA” is not a brand name of an entertainment appliance.
  5. Pana and Patans… I always wonder what they call us, but certainly it’s not “KABAYAN”!
  6. There are no Traffic Lights… Only “SIGNALS”!
  7. That most of my fellow Filipinos and Filipinas are LAW ABIDING EXPATS.
  8. As always, like any other countries in the world, the Indians and the Filipinos populate this country.
  9. It’s ALO! And not Hello…
  10. Distance makes a person “MARUPOK”.
  11. Large open spaces are not used as a Basketball Court… it is used for boring games like “Cricket and FootBall”.
  12. Though it’s fun here… It’s always “MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES”.
