I've always wondered what the Arabic equivalent of names like "Woodfield Village" was.

The malls really are a major tourist attraction in Dubai. "This one has an indoor ski slope!" "Oh, well this new one has an hockey arena, and an aquarium, and a few thousand paper butterflies!"

So many malls. Perhaps... too many malls?

Dubai is exactly like Vegas, except the gambling has been replaced with shopping.

Dubai is exactly like Vegas, except that it is illegal to be Jewish.

Seriously. Why does anyone do any business with Dubai. They are so writing cheques they can't cash.

Because the checks have cashed so far, so you just need to be ok with the last one bouncing.

Forwarded to my colleague in the UAE who insisted on dragging me to malls.

All of them ... to work on the cleaning crews.

... see what's coming up for Dubai

I don't know. Dubai is more than just oil money - it's a destination for people all over the Middle East, it has a huge expat community working at tech firms, etc.
