i'm crazy over meraas..

Last weekend, for the third time in this month, I received an email from my friend Asrul Azad Anwar (Kuala Lumpur). Again and again, he asked me of the job opportunity in Dubai, as he is very interested to work here. Looking at how eager he is, I can’t say no anymore, so I did a survey on few developers and firms in Dubai that worth it to join.

I forwarded to him several names including Nakheel, Sama-Dubai, Aldar, Emaar, al-Qudra, Trident, and few architectural firms such as Atkins (my favourite) and AEDAS. Of all developer, I recommended him to send his resume to Meraas Development (a member of Meraas Holding). Personally, I’m attracted to the proposal by Meraas Holding especially the Jumeirah Garden City, Dubai. Tengok preview of the project masa Cityscape Dubai, and I just fall in love with the proposal. It’s a crazy proposal. Very futuristic. Very eye catchy.

Here is a sneak preview for you guys…


Jumeirah Garden is the first masterplanned community from Meraas Development. Conceived as an integrated city within city, with district neighborhoods linked by a diverse network of transportational options, Jumeirah Garden will comprise low, medium, and high-density areas with business, residential, retail, leisure and recreational components.

They include:

One Dubai

This will be one of the tallest and largest buildings in the world, a mega-structure consisting of three linked tower of staggered heights, with mosaic-like glass and aluminium-mesh cladding.




One Park Avenue

This 600 000 square meter tower, whose undulating form is a tribute to Dubai’s historic relationship with the Arabian Gulf, will be a marvel of 21st century technology and sustainable design.




Park Gate

The project comprises six paired towers, each 30 to 40 high, with the three pairs of towers forming a grand entrance leading into Dubai Park.









I love the design, really!

about a gal name latifah

This post is dedicated to my beloved younger sister, Latifah

Last week, I’m a bit tense with the office’s workload throughout the weekdays, so I decided to take a break, go back a lil bit early on Friday nite, asked bro Yani and Siti to accompany me to watch ‘Eagle Eye’ – a new film by Steven Spielberg and of course, shopping time!!

My sister will tie the knot this coming November, so I decided to buy a present for her, a good one. Lagipun, she is my only younger sister, so takpa lah kalau habis duit sikit for her. Before this, I’m thinking to buy her a posh handbag. It must be either LV or Guess handbag. Tapi lepas pikir punya pikir punya pikir, I don’t think she gonna use it anyway. Sebab…. She is different (in a good way of course). Tak suka pakai menunjuk nunjuk. X suka membazir. Tak suka menda menda yang menonjolkan diri etc. She is a very shy gal. So, I can imagine, nanti the handbag akan ditinggalkan dalam rak saja. Huhuhu.

Hmm… terpengaruh dengan my new hobby (buy watches for collection), I decided to buy her a watch. Drop-by in Rivoli Outlet in Mall of Emirates, and start ‘hunting’. Well takda la ambik masa lama sangat sebab before that, dah siap buat survey kat internet, cari watches yang xnampak menunjuk2 tapi at the same time still sleek and catchy. Huh, payah jugak tu.

Here are the nominees (CK watches for ladies)…




really like this design. a combination of bracelet and watch. cuma yg kureng ialah, dia punya saiz takde. dan kita takleh potong macam tali jam biasa tu, coz dia ni one piece. hmm...

oh, yang ni memang funky giler lah.. tapi, adakah sesuai pakai jam yang macam ni di sekolah di sebuah kampung dia kawasan terpencil di johor? tak mungkin....





arrgghhh... pun takda saiz...


And the winner is….
pilih yang ni, sebab design dia tak la melampau lampau sangat... just nice. betol tak?


Hmm…. Koyak rabak jugak lah my pocket. So lepas ni, kalau my sister x pakai, and just let the watch being lonely and abandoned in the wardrobe, I’m gonna kill her.

I’ll be back to Malaysia for my sis’s wedding. Yay!!! Just for 12 days. The leave application been approved by my boss, hopefully boleh balik dengan tenang lah. Takut jugak kalau kalau cuti ditarik balik (one of my colleague here need to change the air ticket just because her leave application been freezed, last minute). Kita tunggu dan lihat lah…
