    Congrats Suhair, me and my wife where so happy when she won, we had tears in our eyes. So nice to have one who realy needs it win. Also I recomend that anyone who can afford a villa in Durra to buy, beautiful blue sea, clean air, and very well designed islands and villas. Bet when the first fase is finished in late 2007 you will not be able to get any.

    My heartly congrats to Suhair. My advice to her is to sell the car and boat because it will be no use to her and her family in the initial stage. Cuz, according to her current family’s financial situation they cannot afford the expences for maintenance of car and boat, also the value will depriciate gradually. So, sell both car and boat and invest the money that you will get from both car and boat into something which will generate good return (i.e buy flat/house and give it for rent, business etc.). Once the financial situation is better then someone can think of buying the side luxuries. Of course, the house at Durrat Al Bahrain is the bigget asset for Suhair and her family. Use it wisely.
