#mydubai is for everyone and hopefully more than just a statement

By: Hossein Jalali • April 30, 2015

In the past few days I have heard from multiple friends that they were called by EmiratesNBD letting them know that their accounts will be closed shortly, no reason was given but also not necessary as we have all faced such calls in the recent years, it is not based on my activity, personality, background or any of these features that define me as a human, NO! It is becasue of my nationality!

The Iranian new year is just around the corner and my life will be changing forever soon ...

By: Hossein Jalali • March 19, 2015

It's been a few months since I last wrote and while there is so much to write about I just could not wrap my mind around everything that is happening. Today I decided to review the year that passed, review all the good and bad.

In just 6 days I will become a fatherو this alone has been hard to grasp. It's just surreal in a way where my brain is unable to analyse the depth of it. Everyone says your perspective on life will change your goals, your values and I am sitting there and trying to understand how? Every time I think about Wednesday 25th of March, 9 am my heart sinks, the doctor said the whole process takes only 4-7 minutes until the baby will reveal itself! *shivers* ... I am blessed to have this opportunity, to become a father to another living creature (Leo aside of course LOL), and even more blessed to do it with the woman I love and grew up with, not everyone gets such a chance and those who do I assume take it lightly.

Today I tried another phrase "Hawanese Dog" and yes I know it is spelt Havanese but I just needed to see.

Results came in ...
