Friendly Neighbourhood

Doing something different for the sake of being different is not too different than doing something different because its really different. So this is me being different. A picture from the neighbouring emirate Sharjah for the first time on this site. Clicked on a bright Friday morning. Enjoy the view.

The world's largest fountain (as claimed)

Here's another to the list of superlatives which exist in Dubai. The world's largest fountain, as they say is truly spectacular. The show starts in the evening around 6 pm I guess and there's a show every 20 minutes which lasts around 4-5 minutes. But be warned. To enjoy it in totality, don't try catching it on camera, the first time you watch it.

Magic carpet blooms

Just coming back from a weekend and we see a carpet of flowers, white in the centre with purple outline. It was not there a couple of days ago and suddenly like magic there's a carpet of flowers blooming. Getting ready for the grand opening of Burj Dubai. I keep wondering how do they get it right every time? How do those guys know that this plant will give white flowers or purple flowers? Will they bloom again for the opening next month? Lets wait and watch...

Dubai stands tall

Was walking in the parking lot of the world's largest shopping mall and got a glimpse of the world's tallest building. Sun shining bright, dubai is still standing tall, but i got a strain in my neck. In the aftermath of Dubai v/s world media, who will stand tall? Come for the opening of the tallest building on 4th Jan 2010 and see for yourself. Enjoy the lovely weather and the Dubai Shopping Festival.
