Daniel Hayton suggests that new arrivals to Dubai should try “one of our legendary brunches”

DUBAI: Despite having landed in the United Arab Emirates less than two months ago, Daniel Hayton has been speaking to new arrivals in Dubai with the all-knowing air of someone who has been living in the city for decades.

“Oh, you’ve just got here,” the Irish 31-year-old marketing manager was seen telling a group of new recruits in his office kitchen yesterday, raising his eyebrows in a manner that suggested he was privy to the sort of information only learned long-time residents of the city could comprehend. “Wow, then this must be a whole new experience for you.”

Sources later confirmed that the enlightened local authority used his rich understanding of Dubai to carefully draw up a series of specialist suggestions for the newcomers.

“Well, I guess you should try out one of our legendary brunches, they’re very popular with first-timers like yourselves. We’ve also got the world’s tallest tower – the Burj Khalifa – and you can go right to the very top. They’re building another, you know. There are beaches here, too, over a hundred. But, of course, the best ones aren’t easy to find. Do you like shopping?”

Having imparted enough wisdom to set the group on their way, Hayton was later seen handing over his phone number should his oracle-esque counsel be required later in the day, before enquiring as to if he might be able to join them himself.
