USMANS LIFE AND PLANS

Im Usman from Pakistan. Im 26 years old and I work as a chef in Dubai, a


wonderful city; one of the best cities in the globe. It has one the tallest
skyscrapers in the world, its technology is the best. Dubai is better than
Pakistan due to its economy. I love working in Dubai.

I will make a lot of money to travel around the world and meet friends who I
forgot about, because I dont have too much time to chat or email them. Im
planning on going to Cairo next holidays to visit my best friend, he is a
serious person, more serious than me. We were the most intelligent
students when we attended university. He is going to buy his plane tickets in
May, and Im going to buy my tickets the same month on the 17th Im going
to see my cousins and once we meet, well go to the desert to ride some
great racing cars Dune buggy and were going to the highest dunes in
Cairo as well. I will ride those racing cars that are faster and greater than
the ones I rode when I was in Pakistan. I love my country but I strongly think
that when it comes to war and insecurity my country is the worst.

I used to live there but I wanted to have a better life so I came to Dubai and I
have a good life here, better than the one I had when I used to live in
Pakistan. In Pakistan the weather is hot, it is just worse here in Dubai
because its located in the desert. There are no plants here, just tall
buildings, fancy cars and very rich people whose business is petroleum. It is
a touristic place, there is a wonderful hotel here named Burj Al Arab, which
has the fanciest cars in the world; rich people come here to stay in this
hotel, and the rooms are very expensive. Food here in Dubai is delicious,
more delicious than in Cairo, but the most delicious food Ive ever tried is
from Pakistan.

I am very happy working here and I want to work and study simultaneously.
When I travel to the USA I will improve my career as a chef and get more
experience to be the best chef in the world. I want to study different styles
of cuisines to learn more and more because I want to save money and Im
going to apply for a scholarship this month. I dont want to miss this chance
which I think is amazing, the most amazing opportunity Ive ever had in my
whole life.

My friend Mohammad from Cairo is a chef as well, and he is a good one, but
I think I am better than him because I worked on international cuisine in
Dubai and that makes me a more experienced chef than him.

On the other hand Arab food is spicier than American or Pakistani but the
spiciest is the Hindi food which has garlic and onion in every dish.

Im very excited because there will be a gastronomic contest next month at


the hotel I am working at, and I will be the winner because I am studying a
lot, Im cooking Hindi style.

I think if you want to be the best, you have to study and work hard to master
what you do and get the best outcome.
