SIDE OF MABONENEG PRECINCT.
Towards the end of the east of the Johannesburg CBD there is a beautiful city development called the MABONENG Precinct. I’ve been twice and I liked it but there were a couple of things that I did not understand that I honestly didn’t like.
I went today to meet with a representative from Propertuity which is the development company behind the MABONENG Precinct. I went there to learn a bit about the differences between the Chinese retail and how to do business when compared to other retail spaces. Someone who deals with sales who was more than willing to help me and ended up showing me around the residential property that is currently for sale in the precinct.
I don’t want to go into the differences much as I do not know at this point what I will include in my final feature and I mean I must create suspense otherwise what’s the point right?
Someone told me that the precinct currently has 12 finished buildings but they currently own 40 buildings in the area which they plan to have completed in the next five years. This brings me to what I did not like about MABONENG initially.
I thought: “What on earth is the point of having this small are of beauty when the rest of the surrounding areas are pretty much run down?” Well I guess my question was answered today.
MABONENG is still a developing project and the main objective is to have a space where people can live, work and invest. I asked one of the tourist said at the end of the day the aim is to become a lot like New York City where people actually prefer to live in the city rather than in suburbia.
Oh how I would LOVE that. I believe the city is gorgeous and as we walked around today I noticed more and more just how stunning our city is. (Oh My Gosh I just referred to Johannesburg as my city. MIDRAND please do not kill me. I still love you.)
After walking around the residential property I grabbed some lunch on my lonesome then went on the free public art tour in the area. Now understand that I hate being alone. Not all the time but most of the time. I’m one of those people who would never dine alone or go to the movies alone, it just freaks me out.
I realised at the beginning of this project however that I would have to learn how to get out of my comfort zone and learn how to immerse myself in something alone and learn some valuable lessons. The street art tour was amazing and I will be posting some of the pictures later there are just so many.

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.
Maciej Rybczynski: I got into this book yesterday and could not stop reading. Good to have it finished as there is plenty other pressing matters. :) The flow of action is excellent. The author managed to keep all the boring parts outside of this book. Really enjoyed reading it.
harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.
Kalyan Shobhana: There is not a moment in this book where you think...let me stop now. this book cast a spell that compels you to finish it. in the end...you just hope and pray that may it turn out to be a series and the author keeps writing more and more. Let's just say this books makes me want to be selfish ,so...
warehalleyr: I usually have a difficult time staying interested in books long enough to actually finish them. This story however, had me so caught up that I'd only stop to sleep at 3am when my body would no longer allow me to keep my eyes open. What I loved about this was that I could actually imagine the rea...

The contrast between rich and poor is very evident too.The storyline actually sheds a compelling light on why women in certain countries sell themselves just to help their families or even to survive themselves.

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...
Someone: This was a fun, entertaining read. Although the novel wasn’t stylistically polished, and although the first couple of chapters struggled to hold my attention, the rest of the novel was engaging and beautifully done. You had me fooled until the end. The rest of this review will contain spoilers fo...
