‘In the most im­por­tant things, we all are the same’

“We met at Claw BBQ, Souq Al Ba­har. There are a lot of mixed cou­ples in Dubai. I be­lieve that here more than any other ma­jor in­ter­na­tional city we are all en­cour­aged to bring and share our dif­fer­ent cul­tures/tra­di­tions. By be­ing em­pow­ered to share our dif­fer­ent cul­tures we ac­tu­ally high­light how in the most im­por­tant things (love, fam­ily, as­pi­ra­tions) we all are the same. For me the Filipino and Ir­ish cul­tures are so sim­i­lar I feel just as much at home with my wife’s fam­ily as I do with my own.

A place that has sen­ti­men­tal value for us is the creek area since we got mar­ried in Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club. Our plan for Valen­tine’s Day is to have a ro­man­tic din­ner at the place we first met… Claw!”
