I have a house in Dubai now. i don't own it. I'm renting it. although my company stated in the contract that i should get 2 bedroom furnished apartment but they set the max limit i could go for. With that limit I couldn't get at my preferred location. I found one which we are staying now. we love the place but it was not fully furnished. We decided to go for it and use some settling allowance to furnish it :P Yes I have to say my company is a cheapskate :P Have to argue for the things that you deserve. anyway the new deal quite OK. still within my target for the next 2 years.
Ameerah is happy too. the moment she stepped into the house she was singing and murmuring. We had one bed on the first day and the rest was empty. that was enough to sleep well ;-) quite lucky because the owner provided the curtain and blind so we safe some money there. we spent almost 3 weeks to furnish the house. we have good amenities too. the landlord paid 26k a year for the maintenance. I don't bother to know the price when he made it loud. I appreciate it however the rent price has been dropping more than 50% anyway. The fact is a lot more of empty flats and a lot more on construction. for some reason they cant bring the price down to sustain an elite surroundings. Hopefully they will maintain the same price next year so I don't have to bother to make a move until my contract ends.
I guess i should be back for good after 6 years which means by end of 2012, Ameerah should be living in Sutera Kajang. I know it's kinda hard to be back after spending so many years abroad. I have this kind of feeling inside me. I wish none of my close family especially my father will leave me when I'm away. I don't want that to happen. I keep checking on him. asking for blessing to continue my work here. I'm happy to hear that he's happy. we had a good chat this morning anyway. I plan on January 2013, I'll be back for good and spend my time in Malaysia. I can make a frequent visit to kampung. Ameerah and wish she'd be having a brother/sister by then ;-) could spend more time with their tokwan, opah, atok and nenek. not to forget all our close families in Grik. Of course I have to make sure I don't have much liability to sustain. That's reality.
Let's pray for the better day! Ramadan Kareem....
