Believe it or not, despite all those rumors about exploitation they were having a really good time. Mr. Teddy was treated like a pop star

It was white but I didnt get the model, a biggy and could have been a Q7

Got the plate though C 818.

Can someone please point me a hi def pic of Burj Dubai and Dubai Mall ?
I want to present the mall to one of my best friends that will work there.
I'm asking this here since I know that Dubai Mall is kind of a part of Burj Dubai complex.
Thanks !

Burj Dubai, the tallest building in the world, will not open until January 4 next year, it was announced on Wednesday.

The opening will coincide with the four-year anniversary of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum becoming the ruler of Dubai, official news agency WAM reported.

"We decided to inaugurate the world's highest tower during an anniversary that is dear to the hearts of everyone," Emaar chairman Mohammed Alabbar said in a statement.

"The Burj Dubai reflects the ambitious vision set by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid."

Sheikh Mohammed had been "the first supporter of the company and all of its projects since its inception", he added.

Developer Emaar had planned to open the the iconic tower on December 2, Alabbar told CNN last month.

December 2 is the National Day of the UAE.

In the CNN interview, Alabbar said that he was "shooting for UAE National Day", adding that "12,000 staff were working inside trying to get the building ready".
