Laid-Off Foreigners Flee as Dubai Spirals Down Published: February 11, 2009 DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Sofia, a 34-year-old Frenchwoman, moved here a year ago to take a job in advertising, so confident about Dubais fast-growing economy that she bought an apartment for almost $300,000 with a 15-year mortgage. Now, like many of the foreign workers who make up 90 percent of the population here, she has been laid off and faces the prospect of being forced to leave this Persian Gulf city — or worse. Im really scared of what could happen, because I bought property here, said Sofia, who asked that her last name be withheld because she is still hunting for a new job. If I cant pay it off, I was told I could end up in debtors prison. With Dubais economy in free fall, newspapers have reported that more than 3,000 cars sit abandoned in the parking lot at the Dubai Airport, left by fleeing, debt-ridden foreigners (who could in fact be imprisoned if they failed to pay their bills). Some are said to have maxed-out credit cards inside and notes of apology taped to the windshield. The government says the real number is much lower. But the stories contain at least a grain of truth: jobless people here lose their work visas and then must leave the country within a month. That in turn reduces spending, creates housing vacancies and lowers real estate prices, in a downward spiral that has left parts of Dubai — once hailed as the economic superpower of the Middle East — looking like a ghost town. No one knows how bad things have become, though it is clear that tens of thousands have left, real estate prices have crashed and scores of Dubais major construction projects have been suspended or canceled. But with the government unwilling to provide data, rumors are bound to flourish, damaging confidence and further undermining the economy. Instead of moving toward greater transparency, the emirates seem to be moving in the other direction. A new draft media law would make it a crime to damage the countrys reputation or economy, punishable by fines of up to 1 million dirhams (about $272,000). Some say it is already having a chilling effect on reporting about the crisis. Last month, local newspapers reported that Dubai was canceling 1,500 work visas every day, citing unnamed government officials. Asked about the number, Humaid bin Dimas, a spokesman for Dubais Labor Ministry, said he would not confirm or deny it and refused to comment further. Some say the true figure is much higher. At the moment there is a readiness to believe the worst, said Simon Williams, HSBC banks chief economist in Dubai. And the limits on data make it difficult to counter the rumors. Some things are clear: real estate prices, which rose dramatically during Dubais six-year boom, have dropped 30 percent or more over the past two or three months in some parts of the city. Last week, Moodys Investors Service announced that it might downgrade its ratings on six of Dubais most prominent state-owned companies, citing a deterioration in the economic outlook. So many used luxury cars are for sale , they are sometimes sold for 40 percent less than the asking price two months ago, car dealers say. Dubais roads, usually thick with traffic at this time of year, are now mostly clear. Some analysts say the crisis is likely to have long-lasting effects on the seven-member emirates federation, where Dubai has long played rebellious younger brother to oil-rich and more conservative Abu Dhabi. Dubai officials, swallowing their pride, have made clear that they would be open to a bailout, but so far Abu Dhabi has offered assistance only to its own banks. Why is Abu Dhabi allowing its neighbor to have its international reputation trashed, when it could bail out Dubais banks and restore confidence? said Christopher M. Davidson, who predicted the current crisis in Dubai: The Vulnerability of Success, a book published last year. Perhaps the plan is to centralize the U.A.E. under Abu Dhabis control, he mused, in a move that would sharply curtail Dubais independence and perhaps change its signature freewheeling style.

Dubai, UAE—More than 20,000 people, mostly overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) from the Middle East and as far as the United States flocked to Dubai to watch Wowowee, a noontime and variety game show, hosted by Willie Revillame. Some of the fans arrived at the venue on the eve of the show to have a guaranteed front-row seat at the Dubai Festival City. The gates were supposed to open by noontime, but organizers said they had to move it an hour earlier to give space to the massive crowd. "Wowowee in Dubai" is the first leg of the show's world tour sponsored by The Filipino Channel (TFC). Liezel Garcia, a former Dubai-based scholar of Pinoy Dream Academy 2, was the first to perform with her own rendition of Disturbia, Take a Bow, and Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw. Dancers Luningning, Milagring, Mariposa and Saicy and alluring co-hosts Mariel Rodriguez, Valerie Concepcion and Pokwang spiced up the show. The crowd went wild as Revillame emerged from the stage. He sang a medley of his hit singles Wowowee, Buksan Mo Papasukin Ako, Umaalog-alog, Sayaw Darling, Rock n Rollin, and Igiling-giling. Charice, dubbed as the most talented girl in the world, left the whole Dubai Festival City concert arena in awe after her powerful rendition of Celine Dion's Alone and Because You Loved Me. Games A Palestinian married to a Filipina was chosen as among the 20 Bigat-10s who played in the Hep, Hep, Hooray challenge. But it was a salon-worker who took home P100,000 in cash prize. Winning the Big Time Pera O Bayong jackpot prize of house and lot and P100,000 cash, meantime, was a certain Aling Flor, who is a former household worker living in UAE for 22 years now. The most poignant game segment of the program was the Willie of Fortune where some struggling OFWs shared their slice of life to the crowd. Another contestant, Aling Pacita, won in the final elimination round of Tanong ko, Sagutin Mo. She won a total of P65,000 and a brand new car. Capping the four-hour fun, music and prizes was Revillames rendition of Munting Hiling as he paid tribute to thousands of OFWs around the globe. "Its really a reunion. Alam mo sa dami ng taong yan, kahit anong pagod mo, pag nakita mo ang mga yan na nakangiti, nakakahiyang mapagod," Revillame said. "Wowowee" is celebrating its fourth anniversary while TFC is commemorating its 15th year. Raffy Lopez, ABS-CBN Globals chief operating officer, said Revillame and his popular show will also go to Italy, Florida and Las Vegas in the US this year. We're going to bring Willie all over the world because of the happiness he brings to all our kababayans," Lopez said. ABS-CBN president Charo Santos, meanwhile, said: Nakakataba ng puso, nakakatuwa na sa pamamagitan ng The Filipino Channel, nakakadala kami ng kahit sandaling katuwaan at saya sa kanilang mga puso." -- With a report from Dindo Amparo, ABS-CBN Middle East News Bureau Originally uploaded by RABERNZ

Dubai - Four Points by Sheraton Hotel. Executive suite.

Middle of places, McDonald, Wagamama, TGI Fridays and super market near by (10min walk), Taxi close by 24/7. I don't recommend going to Dubai until January 2010. Most of the Buildings were still getting made such as Tallest building. Dubai Mall (largest in the world) was open but about 40% of the shops were still not opened. IMPOSSIBLE to travel around by walking or cycling. You have to take a car or Taxi since you can not cross the road. Monorail was still getting made.
