It’s also only 3 towers + 2 pools + 2 gyms, whereas my current place is 6 towers + 2 pools + 2 gyms. You do the math – it’s impossible to get a sunlounger at mine any later than 9 am at the weekends – there’s just too many people for the pools. Get me, sounding all Dubai!
It’s amazing how you get used to apartments being of a certain standard here. Live without two bathrooms? Live without an en-suite? Live without a pool that gets the sun all day? Live without a gym downstairs? Live without a large balcony? Are you joking?!
I know that at some point I will have to leave Dubai and deal with more modest accommodation. But until then, I’m going to enjoy my extremely blessed living arrangements. God knows I work hard enough to deserve some home comforts - however glamorous they may seem to outsiders!
I will, of course, keep you posted.
