Drinking coffee with SerbinDubai

Drinking coffee with SerbinDubai

Having a coffee with  Serb in Dubai. After the first interview which you already saw here[ Interview with SerbInDubai ], guys from NasBiro and goForTV decided to make another since in the first one I was not enough representative. Apparently, viewers complained about my #salanastranu hairstyle so they took me to the hairdresser. Visiting this kind of institution is not always pleasant especially if you get a non-wanted massage [head massage -just for the record] - check the video. The questions I answered are related to things I miss the most. Don't worry I mentioned all of you but they cut it in video editing. To skip writing more check the video (the video is in the Serbian language): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWqF74yHIOw Also, check some of the newest blog posts from SerbinDubai: THINGS YOU NEED TO DO WHEN VISITING SERBIA INCREDIBLE INDIA 5 WAYS TO SPEND YOUR FIRST SALARY IN DUBAI!!!

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...

Gifts you need to bring from Serbia

Tuuuuuuuuuuu, tuuuuuuuuuuuu, tuuuuuuuuuuuuu SiD: Hello. Mom: Hi SiD, mama here, I don't know whats you plan for April but put it on hold I am bringing sarma. SiD: But mom I have to do work and have some plans and ...... Mom: I don't care. Clean your house I am coming. How many of you had a similar situation? How many of you are forced to inflate airbed without any question? I got you, bro. Been there done that. Guests, the most favorite kind of people in the world, like to "from time to time" destroy your daily routine. There are no many way outs, especially if they are your family. In Serbia, we say "for every guest 3 days is enough". In Dubai that doesn't work. Let's be honest, we love our friends and family but going on Desert Safari for a 5th time becoming a bit annoying. HOW TO TAKE A TOUR AROUND DUBAI WITH YOUR VISITING GUESTS WHICH WILL BLOW THEIR MIND BUT NOT YOUR POCKET? But there...

Enjoy your Friday at the Balkan brunch

Enjoy your Friday at the Balkan brunch

Balkan brunch Most people in Dubai are using "Friday to Friday" living system. Basically, means - can't wait for a weekend so I don't watch clients, bosses and other annoying humans anymore. Friday is a day for fun. [If you do not work in hospitality - carry on] There is a dozen of stuff to do but only a few of them will gather you and your friends on one spot. In Serbia, we call them Posela, in Dubai it's called Brunch. You probably saw a bunch of videos with drunk Westerns falling in fountains and behaving like they are on Zakinthos. The event where you pay to test your liver and where ladies move like Captain Jack Sparrow. Yes, that is brunch. For a long time, we were forced to visit this non-pleasant-for-the-eye places. Until now. Pedja and his friends decided to say NO Pasaran!!! After few attempts, they successfully managed to create first and only Balkan brunch. Thank you, guys. You found one more...

Is it safe to travel to Serbia?

Is it safe to travel to Serbia?

Is it safe to travel to Serbia? We feel that most of the people who visit Serbia build a very positive opinion of our country. They like many different things, from architecture and monuments to people and food. However, the number of foreign visitors of Serbia, although increasing significantly every year, is still not on a level which people who have a nice opinion of Serbia would expect. Why is that so? We believe one of the main reasons could be - safety. Writing these lines, we are referring to all of our non-Serbian readers, and we would really appreciate to be corrected if we are wrong, but - to us it looks like the most of the world is still of the opinion that here either the war is still ongoing or that it has just ended and there are suspicious people who could rob, kidnap or otherwise harm somebody who comes from abroad, especially from the west. All we can say...

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...
