#12 Gentle summer breeze

Sitting cross-legged on our black dining room chairs, warm summer breeze wafting in, Sheikh Zayed Road’s traffic overwhelmed by the constant drilling from the adjacent site. I wonder what they’re going to do there? Please built a park!

It’s nice to be home again. Here’re some snapshots from my little work trip to Makati :

The underside of the pedestrian crossing leading Greenbelt to our workplace was covered with beautiful graffiti. What an ingenious way of beautifying an otherwise boring concrete soffit. I can’t imagine that happening in Dubai, though it’ll be nice to see a little more art here and there isn’t it.

That’ the twisted Infinity building below, almost done I think. Looks like they’re working on the raft for Damac Heights 2. I think if you love construction, it’s awesome to live here because it’s just on-going. You don’t need to watch Grand Designs on TV, you just need to look out your window. I guess the only problem is when they’re f-ing drilling at 11pm at night.

And to end a very non-eventful post,here’s a snapshot from my new favourite cafe. Shakespeare and Co. R and I had the loveliest lunch there this afternoon. What a beautiful little cafe, hidden at the corner of the marina mall. Don’t you love pretty pink things πŸ™‚

Wait wait – I forgot the best bit. Got a free upgrade to Business home from Manila. What’s the trick? Get your Silver on Skywards. During check-in, just ask, with, a smile πŸ™‚

Dubai resident. Stays most of the time in the marina as she can't be bothered going anywhere else after work and in the weekends. Originally from the land of the orang utans, spent the latter half of her life in the land down under. Always on the look out for deals, loves organising get-togethers, and occasionally steals some time for a sip of wine or four at ladies nights.
