Burj Dubai , 2 entrance ( one is unfinished) , Burj Park opened but I think only VIPs coming now, maybe later will be open for anyone.

The screen in Imres pic located in the park will display the actual height during the cermony.

Imre, make sure camera is focused OK as we will need to make out the contents of the lit 888

I guess this will be the best Opening Theme Song for the Opening of Burj Dubai. (I don't know if this one was already posted but It's just 'Remarkable').

The traffic is immense, plus there are hackers trying to get down my website, and I guess the official site as well.

I guess it should start from 20:00, but not clear to me either. Emaar didn't do a good job providing information...
