10 phrases you often get to hear in Dubai.

1. Could I get your good name ?
Probably a translation of hindi “Shubh Naam”. I have heard it so many times now that asking someones name without this epithet sounds almost rude.

2. She is not at her seat .
Instead of Desk, everyone uses seat.

3. Taal, Taal Habib
Now this is very catchy. In Hindi “Jaldi Jaldi” or English “Hurry Up” just doesn’t have it.

4. Same same yaani
Also same same but different.

5. What you will do ? or What you are saying ?

6. Parcel Kar do.
Instead of “take out”, you ask for a Parcel.

7. You only said it, or I only did it.

Now, I know I said *10* but could only come up with 7. Why don’t you help me and fill the other 3 in comments.
