After working for more than a year, I am finally eligible for my annual leave! Most companies in Dubai give expatriates 30 days of paid vacation every 12 months of service plus an economy class ticket to their home country. On July this year, I have worked for 18 months and eligible for 45 days paid vacation!!
My Indian colleagues spend their hard earned money relaxing in India where they could live for at least 3 months with their one month salary (the one they will be getting before going on vacation). I could not do the same since Japan is so expensive!
Anyhow, as someone who packs the luggages a month before departure
in turn run out of clothes to use I am excited and dreaming of alarm-clock-less longer sleeps in the morning and not doing anything but see the sun go up and down. 😎
