San Myshuno reviewsEdit

  • I come to the Skye Fitness to shoot hoops alone, reflect, and prepare to unleash my animal fury on the courts in the Spice District. Here in the Skye, I hone my craft. - SalimtheDream (on Skye Fitness)
  • Uptown is where I come to set my sights, clear my mind, and stare at the human statues. How lame, amiright? Joking, of course. Love it here. - SalimtheDream (on Uptown Civic Plaza)
  • Cannot decide if I want to live here, or not in protest for those who live here and lack vision and spine for a better world. - SalimtheDream (on Landgraab Apartments)
  • I come here for the dango, but boy oh boy does the nigiri tempt me from time to time. - SalimtheDream (on Uptown Food Carts)
  • I prefer the vegetarian options, as the other items give me indigestion. Of the soul. - SalimtheDream (on Spice Market Food Carts)
  • Best Mexican Food in town - SalimtheDream (on Spice Market Food Carts)
  • I always find inspiration in the spice district. Everyone is expressing themselves. The statue. The buskers. The murals. I breathe it in. - SalimtheDream (on Basketball Courts)
  • When I have time, I setup my stall in the Flea Market to sell my latest paintings. I earn a few Simoleons and share my visions with the community. - SalimtheDream (on Flea Market Festival)
  • Ignore the haters on this review. Culpepper is a home basked in love and with a killer view of the spice district. Best neighborhood in San Myshuno. - SalimtheDream (on Culpepper Apartments)
  • I prefer singing among friends in the spice district. More chill vibe, more forgiving crowds. -SalimtheDream (on Waterside Warble)
  • I want to move into the Salt House. It's beautiful, and I could use it to create my art. Or enjoy the bubbles with that sick view of the ocean. - SalimtheDream (on The Old Salt House)
  • Flashing lights. Smiling faces. I find myself surrounded by these when I attend GeekCon, a veritable whose who of the geek community. While I didn't take part in the Hackathon or gaming competitions, the joy it saw in others was enjoyment enough. - SalimtheDream (on GeekCon)
  • What is more beautiful than love? Rose petals fluttering in sync with the hearts all around them…It brings me peace. - SalimtheDream (on Romance Festival)
  • I once dated a girl in ZenView. Though things didn't work out, the view from her apartment was stunning. I should call her. - SalimtheDream (on ZenView Heights)
  • Placing a negative review here to counter out the ill vibes of the unduly wealthy. #protest - SalimtheDream (on Torendi Tower)
  • Music is the perfect expression of the soul! The denizens of San Myshuno put a premium on their singing skills, which I appreciate. - SalimtheDream (on Planet Honey Pop!)
  • Chic Street is a good apartment at a good price. Not to metion it's connected to one of my favorite creative centers in San Myshuno. - SalimtheDream (on 21 Chic Street)
  • The Casbah is a jewel for the city. I come to view the paintings for inspiration, then paint on the provided easels to express myself. - SalimtheDream (on Casbah Gallery)
  • I love that the art district encourages communal art. I bring a crew of likeminded friends and we all paint together. - SalimtheDream (on Outdoor Plaza)
  • It may take a while to save up, but living in Hakim in the art district is simply sublime! - SalimtheDream (on Hakim House)
  • A little posh for my tastes, but then again, I don't lack for apartments more to my liking in the art district. Just a preference thing. - SalimtheDream (on FountainView Penthouse)
  • Love the old style biergarten vibe! Should really get some friends together for a gathering. - SalimtheDream (on Myshuno Meadows)
