Expat Life in Dubai

The golden shrimps.

December 16, 2012


Can you honestly believe that that grocery right there costs AED445.00 (approx USD120)? Not sure about you but that actually gave me a little heart attack at the check-out counter. As you can see, I didn’t buy much – mostly vegetables and 3 kinds of meat (chicken, beef and pork). Upon checking the receipt, that 1kg bag of shrimp costs about AED130.00. I’m not sure which golden waters it was caught from but I swear I saw it on the shelf with a price of AED30.

Don't look back at me like I'm some kind of an idiot for buying you, I'll eat you!

Next time, I should actually ask for the price and not rely on the ones written on the shelf.
