12 things that make no sense to people who are new to the UAE
If you've lived in Dubai for a long time, you'll know all about these things. But if you've only lived here for a year, you're gonna have no idea what we're talking about! (Inside joke lols)
1: Mistakenly calling Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, Emirates Road.
If you're new, you might not know that they changed the name of the road in 2013
2: If you're still doing that, you're still doing this too!
You're still calling Emirates Road, The Bypass Road... It's all very confusing!
3: Constantly thinking about THIS Hard Rock Cafe
We know it closed in 2009, but it sat there until 2013 before it got demolished!
4: You're always amazed at how far JBR has come
Yeah, that walk you all know and love? Never existed until 2013!
5: When someone says "The Burj" you think of the Burj Al Arab, not the Burj Khalifa!
"There are 2 Burj's.. please specify which one you mean!"
6: You still call Novo Cinemas, Grand Cinemas!
It's was a change we're still trying to get used to
7: And VOX cinemas!
"I think you mean, Cinestar Cinemas...?!"
8: You're always annoyed at the Tram
Before this arrived, traffic was way better!
9: You still walk to the old cinemas at Mall of the Emirates
"Oh... Right. I forgot they moved it.. "
10: You still get super excited that penguins live in Ski Dubai
These guys were never here before! You would come here to ski and that was it!"
11: When you talk about the Dubai Country Club...
No one has a CLUE what you're talking about. And it's really upsetting, because you miss it so badly!
12: Wonderland theme park was actually open
And you may have actually visited it before!
