How moving into a new apartment in Dubai can make your life miserable

How moving into a new apartment in Dubai can make your life miserable   The final day of you staying in a shared bedroom is approaching. The salary is better, appetite is higher. From the 1st of the next month, you will be starting a new amazing life in your own apartment with a nice pool and gym. There is only one little problem - how to create a budget for it? I can see that your cursor is already hovering Search button on Dubizzle website. 1 bedroom, jlt, parking yes, 4 cheques etc. Numbers seem fine so far, maybe because there is a silent depreciation of apartments in UAE.

Things you need to do when visiting Serbia

Things you need to do when visiting Serbia

Things you need to do when visiting Serbia A few days ago I had the opportunity to talk with one Spanish lady who is apparently a big fan of Belgrade and generally our culture. After few routinely generated questions like where have you been, which place you visited and rest, I noticed that most of her answers are focused on things, not on places. Finishing my 3rd glass of wine I start wondering what will be the things which make the best impressions on foreigners. Let's face it, our cities are beautiful but you cannot really compare them with the biggest European capitals. So, it can't be the landscape which drives them spending their yearly vacations in our place. It is something else. She mentioned that only reason for visiting Belgrade was because her friend invited her, otherwise she will never come. From here I realize the main thing - they come because of PEOPLE. I know that folks in homeland have different...

3 Reasons Why You Should Visit Nikola Tesla Museum

3 Reasons Why You Should Visit Nikola Tesla Museum

Nikola Tesla was born in 1856 in a small village named Smiljan. Since his childhood, he expressed great interest in science and, despite some opposition by his parents, he enrolled studies in Graz, where he studied all day long (except only 4 hours he used to spend sleeping). He traveled through Europe, he also studied in Prague, he worked in Maribor, Budapest, Paris, and Strasbourg, and in 1884 he went overseas, to the United States, where he, with short breaks, remained his entire life and accomplished things so revolutionary and futuristic that, even today, we can't understand the complete range of his greatness. Writing about his inventions here would be totally inappropriate, not just because we would need like a year for that, but also because there is this beautiful and a humoristic comic story about Tesla which made a lot of people explore Tesla's work and life: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/tesla. We'll just stick to that that Tesla is probably the greatest...

Words you need to know in Dubai!!!

Words you need to know in Dubai!!!

My father used to say: "Speak Serbian so everyone can understand you". Although it might work "u Bec" or Mönchengladbach, in UAE it's a different case. Dubai is a home of 100+ various nationalities. Most of them eat biryani so knowing Arabic will not make much difference. English is the first language, but knowing English will not make you better than others. (Having their passport will do). So in order to adapt quickly, this is a set of words you need to know before coming in Dubai. Top 10 Words you need to know before you come in Dubai!!! Yalla (Arabic) - or "come on". Sometimes goes in couple with Habibi. Commonly used when you are in hurry or parked in a wrong zone and waiting for your friend to buy shawarma. Inshallah (Arabic) - Be careful with this word. Even after 2 years still not sure should i believe people who use this one. Should stand for "If God allows" but in reality is more like "Sredicemo nesto" or "We...
