I hear a lot of people moaning about not being able to eat in the morning but breakfast is not called that for nothing. Break-fast literally, the last time that you had eaten is probably around 8 o’clock the previous evening and now you awaken to the snoozed alarm, get up and run to the French press or percolator.

The Middle East’s expatriates are here to work, this is the primary goal of most that live in the UAE. Of course the expats usurp the many benefits that the UAE has to offer, but they have to work hard at it.
