The new happiest (and rather large) place on earth

Dubailand is the latest of many huge developments in the mix in Dubai at the moment.

At over 3 billion square foot in size, it’s possibly a little big to get around on a day pass.  There’s a shopping mall, a golf course, a snow arena, an equestrian club, a theme park, apartments with gardens inhabited by actual size dinosaurs, resorts, museums, restaurants and a theme park.

What a teensy iddy bitty 4 arena sports centre.  How embarrassing for Dubai.

Best wet job in the world

Fancy living on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef?  Wanna spend your days snorkeling, feeding the fish and blogging to the world about your experience? 

No? Sounds bloody awful, doesn’t it?  Ahem.  I have cubicle brain.  I mean, it sounds bloody incredible, eh?  I wonder if it matters that I can’t swim.

Living above the Great Barrier Reef is a pretty unique benefit, but the successful candidate will also be paid a salary package of AUD $150,000 for the six-month contract. You’ll receive return airfares from your nearest capital city (in your home country), accommodation and transport on Hamilton Island, travel insurance for the contract period, computer, internet, digital video and stills cameras access, plus travel to a number of the other Islands of the Great Barrier Reef. The six-month contract commences 1st July 2009.

On the edge of my seat

This is where my nerves are right now …
