De­ci­sion to re­brand Te­com and Bar­sha Heights sparks re­ac­tion on­line

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS -

“Bar­sha Heights? Like 20 feet above sea level? Hmmm, I see in my crys­tal ball that there is a pos­si­bil­ity for Rent Hikes for a nice name like Heights.” “Te­com needs plant­ing and clean­ing, not a posh name.”

STEPHEN CHUA

“The name ‘heights’ makes it sound like a posh sub­urb. Maybe Mas­sage Val­ley would be more like it?”

ANDREAS DÜRKOOP

“Lol. I’m sure the new name won’t make all the busi­ness cards dis­ap­pear.”

HANELEEN EHMKE

“In­stead of wast­ing time re­nam­ing lo­cal­i­ties, they should find ways to make the city more af­ford­able. I’m sure they had a com­mit­tee of ten men paid to come up with this.”
