Things Seen in Dubai

The view outside my hotel room's window.

A construction spot just opposite the hotel.

No idea on what kind of car was that .... what a limo! The building at the background is high end condominiums.

Then I saw another limo, this time a Hummer limo??!?!?!?!??!?!?!??!?

Dubai airport has quite a number of self check-in machines to process the queues much faster. That is also provided that passengers are well versed on how to operate it. As for me, never used it before.

2,000 raffle tickets being sold at 500 Dirham each. The grand prize is an Audi R8 4.2 FSI Quattro. Want to buy one of those 2,000 tickets?

The latest 2009 model, made in Germany with good specs.

I wonder which of this lamp has a genie in it. One rub and one of the wishes would be to fly around the world and enjoy life at fantastic tourist places.

I have friends who collect ducks, dogs, cats miniatures for display throughout the house.

I'll start mine with camels then. I think I have two different kinds of camels now.

The camel at the bottom of this picture cost 375 Dirham. The stuff being carried by the camel are made of expensive materials.

It's not cheap but they certainly look colourful and nice. Will start collecting one by one.

This notice board will show you how big is this Dubai airport Terminal 3.

As the airport is big, this notice board will show where you are right now and the probable time you will need to walk to your boarding gates. From one end to the other end - it will take thirty (30) minutes.

You can actually cover it in less than 30 minutes. The 30 minutes timing is for those who wants to walk at ease, still able to look at your favourite items being on sale (no time to queue and buy though), get to see those handsome men and beautiful ladies walking pass you, smell those aroma coming from the cafes or restaurants and to let go your last pint of water in your body system.

I wonder who are they trying to kid around. This L Esprit de Courvoisier whisky is being retailed at 23,500 Dirham or USD6,527.77.

A plane, a plane, it's a plane (fantasy island????)

That's really mine.

Couples who walk down the church aisle after being pronounced as husband and wife may be enjoying that walk. Happiness abundant. Nothing will bother them.

Mine's different ............. why am I on this bridge walking into the plane heading to Sudan?

And the pathetic small toilet for economy passengers.

The toilet for business class is not any bigger also haha.

haha, I am confused....are you in Dubai, Sudan or KL now? I can't quite determine from your posts.

From your Hainan Coffee post, it sounds like you're back in KL, then...poof, you're heading to Sudan from Dubai??

You can be in Two, different places at once?? *scratching head* :D
