I think the population just decreased from 1.6 million to like 1/1.1 million.

@Dubai forumers and updaters: Great stuff, nice pics of this awesome looking landmark.

There are Christmass decorations inside hotels, shopping centers or shops, even huge trees ... but those you see on that pic are not.

job losses came to a total of an estimated 100,000 over the last year, I know at least 20 people who lost their job. 8 people I know either left and 11 found a new job. 1 is still looking for work. People that left want to come back as the job market is better here.....

The Retail Christmas is of course done here, most of the stuff we assosiate with Christmas is designed up in some marketing persons boardroom to make a profit.
