When it rains, it spreads happiness for some Dubai residents, especially those who find a ray of hope on an otherwise gloomy day.

Videos of residents turning flooded side streets and patches of sand into ponds for paddling and kayaking were shared and went viral on Friday.

A video was taken and posted by Dr. Dalia Hisham Kokash. She was on her way to work when she noticed a resident of Arabian Ranches 2 happily kayaking while the entire stretch of Al Deem Street was flooded and cars submerged in water.

“It was fun; that guy really made my day,” Dr. Dalia, a dentist with more than 15,000 followers on Instagram, told Khaleej Times.

“As I am a doctor, there is nothing that can stop me from going to work, not even rain or flood. And that guy, my neighbor, made the true definition of “don’t let anything stop you from pursuing your happiness.”
