Cough it up, Dubai

I recently read that you cannot expect to make money without owing money. Sure; I can understand. But heavy debt burdens do nothing other than cause anxiety to bank managers and stomach ulcers to those with the obligation to cough up.

My beloved Dubai, with its related entities, carries a woeful debt burden – estimated at $101.5 billion (!) by Moodies rating agency. The three government-related companies that have debt repayments worth $3.8 billion due this year might face refinancing risks.

But its not risky business for me:  for my bank balance holds not so many zeros and I still carry on clicking away at the inspired architecture of our city’s business centre. Here you see the Dubai International Financial Centre. In the reflection is the Tower I reside in. And for the record, my rent is paid up. I am here for the long-haul!

About Alice

I run, I jump, I sing, I dance. Whether climbing trees, walls or stairs I do it at a clip. When out, my date is always Trusty Nikon (who never lets me down in the attire stakes; so smart in his black, with a pop of red!). Where does it lead, this love affair of mine? Well, its lead me to Dubai, via the matrimonial aisle, thanks to a gorgeous husband who whisked me from Coogee beach, Sydney into the Arabian Peninsula - to my new home, Dubai. I am a freelance writer and photographer and my wish is to snap away, to scribe and to share it all with you. Enjoy.
