Burj Dubai = Burj Khalifa

Dubai has just finished unveiling the height of the Burj Dubai which is now known as Burj Khalifa (why the sudden change of name - we still do not know). The tallest skyscraper stands at 828m.

The unveiling of this building was coincided with the commemoration of Sheikh Mohammed's ascension as Vice-President of Dubai.

I have watched the whole telecast and my oh my! Even on the television screen, the fireworks were spectacular! Another 'add-on' to the opening of Burj Khalifa was the dancing fountain.

According to the report made by Dubai One's reporter, it is a first for the fountain industry to incorporate coloured lights.

I can conclude that there are a lot of 'firsts' for this building.

I hope that with Burj Khalifa fully operational, Dubai will also be able to bring back the emirate's glory.
