Even with the hundreds of different cultures, nationalities and personalities living in Dubai… We all have one thing in common.
And that’s a sense of humour. Especially when it comes to totally relatable, hilarious circumstances we may find ourselves in, which are then perfectly captured as a meme.
Experiences of facing Dubai Mall on a weekend, heading to the beach and hoping for a cool breeze and even the mystery of ‘cloud-seeding’ – these are all cleverly portrayed in a series of Dubai memes, created by talented illustrators based here.
Founded by Sam Ingeborg Saliba(@samirasaliba) and illustrated by Melvin SM (@melvin.sm) and Max Laurence (@max.laurence.illustration), these hilarious Dubai moments can all be found on their Instagram page, @dubaiperson.
Since its creation in July 2018, the account has accumulated almost 1000 followers so far, and we’re sure that number will steadily increase as more and more expatriates discover the funny little Dubai memes.
Here’s some of our most favourite @dubaiperson illustrations that made us truly LOL…
