The Pearl that B had

Good day to all sizzling B-DAZZLERS.

Until now, I cannot help myself but remember the hideous scene in the hotel yesterday evening. Relax, it has nothing to do with murdering somebody. I call that story…”A one of a kind encounter with the Bidet”.

I just came back from my scheduled site visit. As expected, the heat has tortured me like anything. I really can’t remember something which is as bad as this heat. It was no fun at all. If I have to appeal to Mother Nature, I would definitely be very willing to get my hands cut off just to get rid of that freakin’ heat. It was really that bad. It was worst than you can ever envision. All UAE and the rest of GCC expatriates would definitely understand my ancs.

DESTINATION: The Pearl, The Most Glamorous Address in the Middle East.

Just Outstanding

Just Outstanding

Who could visit such glamorous place but the glamorous B herself?

After seeing Dubai Marina, Madinat Jumeirah and Souq Al Bahar…..I thought I have seen enough. I didn’t. Just to give you a brief idea about the Pearl development….here it is…

The Pearl-Qatar in Doha, Qatar is an artificial island spanning nearly four million square meters. When completed it will be the first land in Qatar to be available for freehold ownership by foreign nationals. Once completed The Pearl will create over 32 kilometers of new coastline, for use as a residential estate with an expected 15,000 dwellings by 2010. Developed by United Development Company (UDC) and master planned by architecture and design firm Callison, the island is located 350 meters offshore of Doha’s West Bay Lagoon area.

Residential development on the island is intended to incorporate various national and international themes including aspects of Arabic, Mediterranean and European culture. Commercial and educational facilities are also planned to support the various residential precincts.

Visitors can now get a first look at phase one of The Pearl – Qatar, Porto Arabia. The first five parcels of Porto Arabia, the first three bays developed on The Pearl – Qatar are now complete. The name “The Pearl” was chosen because the island will be built on one of Qatar’s previous major pearl diving sites. Qatar was one of the major pearl traders of Asia before the Japanese introduced cheaper more affordable pearls just before Qatar’s oil boom. The Pearl Qatar will help represent Qatar’s rich past in the pearl industry. Once completed The Pearl will represent a string of pearls.

There will be over 13 islands when finished. The largest of the islands will feature a large range of luxury villas, apartments, three 5 star hotels and over two million square meters of international retail, restaurants, cafes and entertainment. Eight other private islands will be for sale to private owners with the opportunity to build whatever they may desire.

I was accompanied by this cute Tenant Coordinator. His name is Johan Muller. He is a total package, one hell of a gentleman. He is from South Africa. He is a hottie papa. He is a fox, in short. Maybe you all think that I find everyone other men very hot without exception……trust me. Johan is a piece of meal. We call ourselves in first name basis. Cute.  But seriously, that guy is soooooooooo accommodating. He escorted me during my entire site visit. With the heat, I am so glad that I was sharing it with him. 🙂 Of course, my heart melted. When I went back to the car and sat next to him while he was driving….I noticed that the skin below his eyes was turning into blue. It was in a shimmering shade.

Was he blushing because of my presence? Lovely!

Thanks Johan. Till we meet again.

The place in General: My mouth was shut when I saw the place. The development was enormous. I felt like I was a small ant roaming around a big space of wilderness. I never imagined that Qatar would invest such property which is as splendid as “The Pearl”. It was truly a pearl in the making.


I was glad to see that majority of the workers are all Kabayans. Just like me, they were all distressed from the vindictiveness of the sun’s heat. They were all staring at me…..Duh! I told myself. Hello…… I was not the reason why the earth is so hot.  I maybe hoooottt….like I knew it already.

If you remember the color of my hair…you would understand why all of them are gazing at me. But it is ok. I am getting used to it…..I meant the fame that I am grasping right now. For the mere fact that I was a born Celebrity…being noticed by commoners is not a new thing at all. Hahahahahha… 🙂 How I wish those words that are coming out from my mouth were all true. Forgive me…..I am just hallucinating. But seriously….the glitz and the glamour is my cup of tea….Ooooops…Again.



Overall, the place was indeed a paradise. I am well delighted to see it when it is all done which I think is 3 years from now. Spending a day with such one-of-a-kind place would be one of the most tremendous encounters of my life. I certainly feel that Qatar is going to be the next Dubai. I just feel so and I know that we are just talking about a minimal span of years from now.

My trip was all worth it. It was a spectacular experience. I would love to be back soon!


I am excited to be back in Dubai. My flight is at 6:00 in the evening. I will be home soon. Maybe by 11:00 in the night, I will be landing in Dubai with a big smile in my face. I will be back with the normal days. It is going to be a long weekend.

Advance happy weekend everyone. Enjoy the long holidays since it is very infrequent to happen.

My heart is all yours. My Love too.

Keep Shinin’
