Dubai developments - Civilisation in the making

below are some of Dubai developments as in jan 08'

the water front view

Dubai Towers represent the centrepiece of 'The Lagoons' development. The towers and the master planned development were designed by TVS. The four towers, ranging from 54 to 97 floors, are clustered to form a choreographed sculpture, representing the movement of candlelight.

Zaha Hadid has designed the Performing Arts Centre, which will present the finest in music, theatre and dance, on onSaadiyatIsland, which Abu Dhabi's ruler, Sheikh KhalifaBin ZayedAl Nahyan, has decided to make one of the world's top cultural destinations and a "beacon for cultural experience and exchange."

Infinity Tower, designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill (SOM), will stand 80 stories high at 330 meters and will be the world’s tallest tower to feature a 90 degree twist. Infinity Tower will house luxury residential apartments, pools, a state of the art gymnasium, a nursery, conference room facilities, tennis courts and a luxury spa. The innovative design affords apartments on all sides staggering views. Open-space design has been implemented to ensure a minimum of pillars and floor to ceiling windows providing a sense of space and light. A reinforced concrete column will rotate with the twisting shape to create a helix. In addition each floor will accommodate a 1.2 degree twist to achieve the full unique 90 degree spiral.

Arabian Blade. A mixed use tower by architect, Claudio Catalano who says "The structure is devised as a vertical summation of several different buildings like a plant"furbished and intermingled with public and landscaped spaces. The facility will include a hotel, residential housing, commercial and "play spaces".

Hydropolisis the world’s first underwater luxury resort. It will sit 66 feet below the surface of the Persian Gulf and feature 220 guest suites. The Hydropolis, scheduled for completion this year, has faced major delays due to cost issues and concerns over the project's impact on marine life.

Paul's Hardships

2 Corinthians 6:3-13

3We put no stumbling block in anyone's path, so that our ministry will not be discredited.
4Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses;
5in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger;
6in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love;
7in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left;
8through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors;
9known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed;
10sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.

11We have spoken freely to you, Corinthians, and opened wide our hearts to you.
12We are not withholding our affection from you, but you are withholding yours from us.
13As a fair exchange—I speak as to my children—open wide your hearts also.

Lord Lord, i'm sorry for what i've done.

A Father's Love‏

A son asked his father, 'Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?' The father who, despite having a heart condition, says 'Yes'. They went on to complete the marathon together. Father and son went on to join other marathons, the father always saying 'Yes' to his son's request of going through the race together. One day, the son asked his father, 'Dad, let's join the Ironman together.' To which, his father said 'Yes' to. For those who didn't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island. Father and son went on to complete the race together.

empty entry

having a good rest for myself the past weeks. it's been awhile since i last rested. i no longer remember to take breaks ever since i start my design life in temasek polytechnic. eventually my health went deep down. climbing a flight of stair since so far. currently i'm blogging, but i don't feel like blogging now. suddenly there was a rush of uncertainty. loads of things wandering in my mind. for a moment everything stood still and silent flooded my room. a voice lingers in my mind, "hello, are you there?" who is this man? i don't know.

Sheriff: Woman Sat on Toilet for 2 Years

before you watch the video below, please off my music from my blog.

March 12th, 2008 WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities are considering charges in the bizarre case of a woman who sat on her boyfriend's toilet for two years _ so long that her body was stuck to the seat by the time the boyfriend finally called police.

Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple said it appeared the 35-year-old Ness City woman's skin had grown around the seat. She initially refused emergency medical services but was finally convinced by responders and her boyfriend that she needed to be checked out at a hospital.

"We pried the toilet seat off with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital," Whipple said. "The hospital removed it.

"Whipple said investigators planned to present their report Wednesday to the county attorney, who will determine whether any charges should be filed against the woman's 36-year-old boyfriend.

"She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her body," Whipple said. "It is hard to imagine. ... I still have a hard time imagining it myself.

"He told investigators he brought his girlfriend food and water, and asked her every day to come out of the bathroom.

"And her reply would be, `Maybe tomorrow,'" Whipple said. "According to him, she did not want to leave the bathroom.

"The boyfriend called police on Feb. 27 to report that "there was something wrong with his girlfriend," Whipple said, adding that he never explained why it took him two years to call.

Police found the clothed woman sitting on the toilet, her sweat pants down to her mid-thigh. She was "somewhat disoriented," and her legs looked like they had atrophied, Whipple said.

"She said that she didn't need any help, that she was OK and did not want to leave," he said.

She was reported in fair condition at a hospital in Wichita, about 150 miles southeast of Ness City. Whipple said she has refused to cooperate with medical providers or law enforcement investigators.

Authorities said they did not know if she was mentally or physically disabled.

Police have declined to release the couple's names, but the house where authorities say the incident happened is listed in public records as the residence of Kory McFarren. No one answered his home phone number.

The case has been the buzz of Ness City, said James Ellis, a neighbor.

"I don't think anybody can make any sense out of it," he said.

Ellis said he had known the woman since she was a child but that he had not seen her for at least six years.

He said she had a tough childhood after her mother died at a young age and apparently was usually kept inside the house as she grew up. At one time the woman worked for a long-term care facility, he said, but he did not know what kind of work she did there.

"It really doesn't surprise me," Ellis said. "What surprises me is somebody wasn't called in a bit earlier."

a place to dream

is a journey that everyone is concerned without knowing it
we just move on and on
trying to achieve our purpose in life
or to some
trying to find what's our purpose in life
that's a question that we unknowingly ask ourselves

through the busyness of our life
we always 'forget' to dream
as a child, i always been dreaming
as i grow up, somehow i 'forget' to dream
or i can say, i'm too busy to dream
"there's no time" "for what?" that's the common reply.
of cause i'm not talking about the dreams you had when you are sleeping
we always need to come back to a place where we can dream
dream dreams!
have a vision in life
you are the driver of your life
not the passenger
everyone is a leader

set aside a moment everyday to dream
and move towards the dream
realise the dream

... ...Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams. Acts 2:17 (NKJV)

where dreams turn into reality

Architecture / Teddy Cruz’s urban acupuncture

came across this picture in BLDGBLOG recently
and thought it had an aesthetic visual composition

a blend of research photography and photo collages that looked somewhat like maps but also somewhat like actual photos of urban density.

recently i'm quite into urban design, building civilisation? haha

urban = city + architecture + landscape + infrastructure + people + society + community + religion + transportation + ecological networks + polities + economic + cultural idiosyncrasies + lifestyle + sound etc blah blah

love this composition!
