You're right in guessing even when you're not trying! You know black magic, don't you?

It is actually two or three pictures crammed into one! I see MGM Grand, Some tower from london, I see row houses!, I see a bridge and I see a commie style super-structure in the back.

Apparently the paindoo who made this picture has completely lost his/her mind.

The Holiday Inn Hotel will be completed much before that.

Why do they keep going on about 5 star hotels? Even a 2 or 3 star hotel is usually very good if it is based on the international star rating system.

A proper 3 star hotel will be quite adequate.

You answered it yourself. It's coz a Pakistani 5-star would be a decent 3-4 star on the int'l rating system.

That tower is probably the famous clock tower of the city, with that union jack design. Everything esle is just cut & paste. Or as they'd say in Pakistan, Subz Baagh.

I was talking about the one in the UK, that is what Pakia was reffering to right? Or was he referring to the one in Faisalabad?
