How long have you been living in Puteri Harbour? Could you share with us the experience?
I have been living in Puteri Harbour for the past 2 and a half years. I find living in Puteri Harbour relaxing and cooling as it is surrounded by the sea. It is a suitable environment for me to work and live in.
What are your favourite places to shop and dine?
I like to visit Jaya Grocer, a grocery store located in Sunway Citrine Hub, Iskandar Puteri, for my daily necessities. I find Jaya Grocer a very convenient place to shop as it is only about 10 minutes’ drive away from my workplace. I am a food hunter too Therefore, I enjoy exploring food around the area and love trying new ones. I usually visit Eco Botanic for my daily meals. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from, ranging from Chinese restaurants, western cafes, and coffee shops.
Where are your favourite hangout places?
I love the serenity while fishing. I usually walk to Marina Walk, Puteri Harbour, for this activity a few times a year. I feel calm, looking at the yachts and beautiful scenery. It allows me to unplug from work and have a rechargeable break. The activity helps me to improve his concentration as well.
How do you de-stress?
Speaking of de-stress, I exercise to achieve that. I am a frequent badminton player, about once to twice a week with the team from my workplace and the resort next door, Pinetree Marina Resort. The badminton facility is about 7 to 10 minutes’ drive away, in SILC Industrial Area. On other days of the week, I will hit the gymnasium within the service residence to be physically active and mentally healthy. When I feel like jogging outdoor, I will use the jogging tracks in Puteri Harbour.
Do you think Iskandar Puteri is an ideal place to live and work?
I think Iskandar Puteri is a great place to live and work because it is spacious and less busy compared to other cities. I can focus on work and there are many places I can have short breaks too. In short, I can achieve a work-life balance here. I encourage young couples and families to live in Iskandar Puteri.
