Talking Job hunting in "Dubai" (With Pics.....)

Dear Friends

This has been the most amazing trip for me so far. I am in Dubai the most beautiful city (probably) so far......

I landed here on 16th of November, and got to see our own desi bikes probably it was an Eliminator and a Cbz and I was shocked to see them....Very few people ride bikes out here. The least cc bike I have seen over here is 250 cc which is used for delivery and so far a "Black bird".

And the very night I get to feast my eyes on a Lambo Murchelago amazingly low........

Even I spotted a P Ug II and I was to an extent not amazed to see it at all. Well to my suprise Today i even got to see P Ug II in action i guess the pulsars back here have more power than the pulsars back there, at a signal the guy on the pulsar just vroom passed the bus I was in!

And yeah did i fergot to mention they have A/c busses back here and before you board the bus you have to pay the fare...........the busses back here get to reach the speeds of 80 kmph................"Jaaago India Jaago"!

Enough of talking now the pics....

1) 2 beauties

2) 2 beauties II

3) City cab

4) Delivery bike

5) Ferrari 575 M

6) Hidden beauty

7) Honda Accord 06 version

Here are more pics.....



8) Hummer & Audi


Ohh did I forgot to mention these pics have been taken by my friends Nokia 7610.....

Quite cool,
i really like Dubai.
The first day i reached there -
Mercedes S class. hummer, Land cruisers with a bai inside with the a.c. on. I mean, the minute i landed after a trip to Turkey, these cars seemed like maybachs in comparision.
The most common car was the landcruiser.

Nice pics there Armour

Dubai is car heaven and definately the place to live for car lovers. I give credit to Dubai for my love for cars having lived there my entire childhood in the midst of the finest automotive machinery. What would I give to go back there?

Yeah and I can think of a lot of other things you can do in Dubai as well... I'm a poor consultant, not an Oil$$$$ Sheikh.

The Smart used to belong to an Oil$$$ Sheikh of the ruling family, if thats any consolation - you can visualise the rest.

You dont bargain with the Sheikhs...they 'gift' it to one of their chamchas after 3 years on a 'to whomsoever it may concern' royal letterhead.

The price depends on how much money the chamcha is short by at that point in time.

Guys the best past I like about this place is if you happen to sit at one place for more than 5 minutes then you'll be able to spot all the cars that you can remember in the international market.

But too bad there are not many bikes around here, all the bikes are mostly used for delivery purpose.
