There's a top office, not apartment ... and it's not for sale.

In general we witnessed it live at the same time. Nothing better than seeing this in person. Hope everybody had a good time.

I was stood just behind Imre (when he took the photo of the big air balloon) to the far left of Burj Residences. I realised after he posted the pic.

Even if I knew where Altin would be I wouldn't recognize him, since in his pic he wears shades, but I know he likes icecream.

I don't like icecream, plus I was 2 - 3 km away.

I was more interested on getting pictures (which can't be done from nearby) then watching the ceremony.

We should of been closer, we were expecting bigger performance, though the show was still great from a distance.

After watching that photo here: http://f.imagehost.org/0843/10_01_14..._level_124.jpg, there is a question to ask:
Like in other big buildings, here in Burj Khalifa, where will be a Taxi and Bus stop for the passengers of BK (those who want to go not only to 124th floor, but also to stay in Armani Hotel, eat at restaurants etc)?

Is it just me or does the spire look alot longer on this pic and the others posted by Imre near the top of this page? When I first saw it I thought they'd decided to jack it up some more

Probably just the angle though.

Just the angle. There's another section behind that's barely visible
