One day in the Dubai Desert

Recently, an European family wanted to spend some time in the Dubai desert on a cool afternoon.

Since they did not own a 4x4 they decided to park their car on the side of the road and camp close by.

A local man driving by with his 4x4 noticed the car on the side of the road and foot prints leading into the desert. Out of concern he ventured in with his 4x4 and followed the trail to make sure everything was ok.
Not too far away he came by the family happily camping and taking pictures.
He greeted them and welcomed them to Dubai with some traditional local coffee he kept in his car.

Who could this kind and generous local man be?

The photos were taken by a member of the family...

His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Al Maktoum,

Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai!

Pernah dengar cerita orang nak melawat MB Kelantan....jumpa org tua tgh cuci kolah masjid/surau...Dia tunjukkan arah rumah MB. Bila sampai kat sana, MB takde rumah.... Kejap lepas tu, dia nampak orang tua tadi berjalan masuk ke kawasan rumah.... hehehe...rupanya MB yang tengah cuci kolah tadi....
Betul ke tidak.... Wallahu a'lam...
