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.

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...
Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.
Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...
lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love
BFIrving: A first rate story and well crafted, the blend of horror and action worked very well indeed and had me turning page after page. When not actually reading it, I found myself thinking about it which is always a good sign.There are quite a few grammatical and spell-checker errors but nothing anothe...
Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm. I laughed out loud when reading this novel so many times it made the London commuters I shared space with look at me with curious disdain - and I did not care.The protagoni...
matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...
