For me, its the place to live


http://www.dubai-pg.com/Dubai_Immobi...ater-Homes.htm

Some great places.

Anyhow, artificial skiingslopes is only the tip of the iceberg. At least 400+ skyscrapers will be built the oncoming years. A lot of beautification, entertainment and business oppurtunities.

It's according to me becoming the mest stylitsthicly pure and modern anywhere.

I love colorful nightlightings and hope to see a colourful skyline by night in Dubai, the nightlighting of Burj Al arab and Grosvenor house west marina... is great. Maybe it can be a little like Hong Kong. But more stylistichly pure.

Just hope the metro succeeds.

Best building by night according to me is maybe Central Plaza, one of my favorite buildings: http://www.12hk.com/gallery/hk_wnchi1.jpg


Back to Dubai:

http://www.dubai2003images.com/imgli...tegoryid=CAT08

some great pics, like the emirates hills .

And just becouse i love science:

The great coastline in Dubai, the well planned construction alongside it... its something amazing i think. I will move there .

Don't know why.

Oh, and i am entitled to my own opinion.

And also, height doesnt make something the best. The towers are nice but after a while they are all begining to look very similair. Hong Kong is current best, and i think that it deserves to stay the best at least as long as New York did. At this time i am much more impressed with it than i am Dubai. Dubai just doesnt inspire me. Height isnt everything, the architects need to learn that.

I think some projects are pretty awesome, but also there are some that they could do without.

And that is BulldozerGirl? I thought she was always pro-dubai. What happened?

This list REALLY shows how much is going on at once over there!!

This is like playing Simcity 4, with a money trainer (cheats) and all the newest goodies to start placing where you desire... its almost like a dream which is why I have to visit there someday when the Burj opens.. not to sound pessimistic, but I really hope that the security will be beefed up enough to handle all these tourists which are going to be flocking there for vacations at one point or another, and also to guard these massive structures as well..

The last I heard from her, she was sharing an apartment with two guys and was going steady with one for 3 months. I believe she also said that she has been to a bar but didn't drink or something like that.

Anyway, I don't think anyone should be pro-anything just because everyone else is. There's nothing wrong with different opinions.

You can have all the toughest sentences you want and all the military, it wont end anything. You have to go to the root of the problem. Its like handling burgerly, if you are commited to give everyone education, to solve society problems. You will actually have less criminal problems. If you just build up your military you are not putting money and effort where they are needed.
