Got this from Dubai Mall. But wow, we actually have model shops in Dubai.
EDIT: South view
Very cool.Was it a model kit or a pre-built model?
Pre-built.It was not really a model shop in the vein of the ones you seem to typically find in Singapore, as it was selling only Hollywood film action/fantasy/scifi models and figurines.
shoot it down.
Just wondering if the red lights are on... :)Nice view btw !
They can be turned on, but this is in daylight, so there's no point.
Thanks. It's not bad on this side (landscaping and paving between buildings still lacking), but it's better on the other side.
OMG, the sky is so deep blue ! Thanks for the south view, my view is soooo different from yours, have you already seen it in some of my (old) pics ? If not, I might post it soon ;)
Well, it's not always this clear. And for the greater part of the year, it's too hot to enjoy the clarity.I've always wanted a nice urban view, and the south view also kind of reminds me of Singapore, with the tall towers popping out of the foliage (not natural foliage, it's actually a golf course and a landscaped housing colony).
Is there pollution in the air above Dubai sometimes ?
A bit. But more often, there is dust. This is the coast of a desert, after all. Also, there can be quite a bit of mist in the winter mornings.
