Company ISO:9001-2008 internal Audit was scheduled for Abu Dhabi Office on 19th July 2011.
Salah (PRO) was keen to ensure he attends this one.
Accordingly messages were circulated and We started from Sharjah at about 6:50AM.
We (myself and sujith) took the Dubai Outer Bypass Road which lead until Shikh Zayed Road.
Even though it was early in the morning, we noticed a severe accident just before Jebel Ali area.
We stopped at a petrol station on the Sheikh Zayed Road for snacks / breakfast. Sujith picked up fruit salad (BARAKAT fruits n vegetables) and fruit juices. By that time we could notice the crowd towards Abu Dhabi on the road!!..
Before entering to Abu Dhabi city, at the biggest mosque area we contacted our colleagues for route to the office.
As per guidance we followed and reached a signal where we should take LEFT turn. As the signal was common for U-turn and Left turn, there was a big line of cars. Also a police vehicle was trying to enter in the line. Due to the big que up, we tried changing the line and to join in the line closer to the signal, but behind was the police and we did not take the risk!..
Instead of taking left, we had to move forward and ended up in the next U-turn to come back to the same signal. Later we found the landmarks near the Abu Dhabi offices and luckily we got a parking close to the office building.
PRO was in the office, but he left just before we enter in the office. We started our scheduled activities. Small meeting with the team mates and collecting evidences, finding out mismatches continued till 1:00pm.
Later finalized the Audit and gathered the documents in electronic format. Called Salah and started for Dubai.
It was lunch time, but we did not try having lunch at the city, as we head towards Shahama, we found another petrol station where we had PIZZA for lunch!
After coming out of the lunch while getting into the lines in Shikh Zayed Road, there was a 4WD vehicle rushing to change the line just behind our vehcle. Sooner it was noticed in the rear view mirror, we changed line to the right and an accident was avoided!!! It was a crazy local driver in an FJ Cruiser!!!
Long drive took another one hour to reach Emirates Road where we saw another accident for a micro Van slipped aside the ROAD and hit to a Date tree!...
By that time there was a call from Emax door delivery guys for installation of TV at home and we dropped the plan of going to Dubai office and headed towards Sharjah.
Sujith got down at Emax for a taxi and I parked at Sharjah Co operative Centre and rushed to catch the Emax team.
