It's going to cost DH4768bn but will be completed by July 2005. You'll be able to buy apartments in my nipples with a view of the palm.

Emaar are going to build the worlds largest housing estate in the shape of my gay goatee beard. It will be the size of Wales, with a lake the size of Bournemouth in the middle and 45 golf courses. You'll be able to choose from any one of three designs if you want to buy one of the 120,000 houses.



Point taken on the social life - but I'd be bankrupt if I went out five times a week in London


PMSL
You magnificent bast*rd,you finally convinced them to do it.......

DUBAI HAS SAVED MY LIFE AND I WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL FOR HAVING BEEN GIVEN THE CHANCE TO LIVE HERE NO MATTER UNDER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES AND FOR HOW LONG. The sun is shining on me almost every morning and it makes it so easy to smile back and enjoy everything and everyone that comes my way.

congrads. I'm glad it works out for you. . I like the sun shining every day too.

Now you just know that ain't gonna happen here in Dubai...........

Anti-social behaviour only comes in three forms in Dubai:

1, Drunk adults
2, local kids
3, Drivers

Common, isn't that the fun and adrenalin that keeps us going every day? How boring if we couldn't let out some gestures and frustrations at others. I love all three points even though I don't drink myself, I don't have a problem with those who do. They make an intresting breed. Local kids? Wonderful, make mine look like angels. If I couldn't compare it would be mine who would be labeled brats. Drivers? Fantastic, you can't beat them? Join them!
