The Crazy Buildings of Dubai

Dubai is a city in the United Arab Emirates that once had a reputation for oil and sand and now is known for its crazy skyscrapers and other developments. We're taking a look at a few of our favorite record-breaking buildings from Dubai!

Burj Dubai

Burj Dubai When it opens in 2009, this will be the world's tallest building. The building will have a swirling flower shape that will make it both beautiful and sturdier. When it opens, it will house shops, offices, residences, and entertainment venues.





Hydropolis

Hydropolis The Hydropolis is the world's first underwater resort and is located 66 feet below the surface of the Persian Gulf. The Plexiglas walls and bubble-shaped dome ceilings give guests amazing views of underwater life.




 

The Palm Islands

The Palm Islands The Palm Islands are the world's biggest man-made islands and form the shape of a palm tree when seen from the sky. The complex houses a variety of tourist attractions like spas and theaters, as well as residential homes.





Dubai Mall

Dubai Mall Attention mall rats! There are plenty of places to scope out hotties at this five million square foot mall, since it's the biggest mall in the world! This ultimate mall will house 15 smaller malls within it, as well as a skating rink, an aquarium, and the planet's biggest gold market.





The Dynamic Tower

The Dynamic Tower This amazing building is straight out of a science fiction movie and is due to be up and running by 2010. The Dynamic Tower will be the world's first moving building! The 80-story tower with revolving floors give the building a shifting shape, and will house 80 different suites and will never look the same twice, according to developers.

Section Eight (the final installment. Thank you guys for your constant support! I know this didn't take long to write, but only because I've had such fun with it!) A week passed. Kishinuma was still mourning over the loss of Ayumi... He spent most of his time alone. He wasn't going to school or work, and he wasn't allowing visitors... Not even his dear younger sister. Late at night, he would cry and scream. "S-Shinozaki... I... I should've told you..." And then he would pause. "...How much you meant to me..." It was going to take a while for him to get himself back together. However, if there was anything Satoshi Mochida knew, it was that his best friend WOULD get back to it. Mayu confronted him one day, and he just offered a small smile. "No need to worry about Yoshiki. He's a strong guy. It'll take time, but I know he'll be just fine." As for what they did with the body... Morishige got a hold of her family and asked what he should do. "Oh... Cremation? I suppose I can handle that..." He did as he was told and burned the corpse. It oddly didn't faze him. "How strange... Seeing the corpse of someone I knew... And I'm not bothered at all." He decided to shrug it off. He had something else to do now. Morishige made his way to a regular park bench. This is where he had been told to wait. "Mayu... She's running late. That's unlike her..." Regardless, he remained calm and waited patiently for Mayu to arrive. She did within half an hour. "Sorry I'm late, Shig! I had some issues with traffic! There are more people around here than normal." He couldn't help but smile. "It's alright. You made it, and that's all that matters." She returned the smile and clinged onto his arm. She couldn't help it... It was a habit. "So... Shig... What did you want to talk about?" His gaze was at the sky when he began speaking. "...I just wanted to thank you." "Huh? What for?" "Last week... You literally saved me life. If you hadn't followed me, I would've died for sure. And... That means a lot to me... And it means even more that it was you..." "...What do you mean by that?" "...I wasn't frightened or anything... Just lonely. Uh..." "Oooo, whaaaaat?" He felt his face get red again. "...I was just... Uhhh... Ahhh..." "Hehe, it's okay, Shig! I know what you're thinking... Don't worry, though. I know how you feel!" "...Y-you do?" "Yeah... Because the reason I came after you is the exact same thing! I was thinking about you the entire time... And I wanted to save you for a change... I had this feeling in my gut... That you were in danger... So I trusted it." "...O-oh... W-well... I'm really glad you did, Mayu. Thanks..." "You're we--" Before she could finish, she was interrupted by a tingling sensation. What was happening...? Her eyes focused again and she noticed Morishige, and how he was a lot closer than normal... Oh. She figured it out quickly. His lips were against hers, and her face got warm. She then returned it, and it only lasted a few more seconds. But she enjoyed it. He pulled away, and his face was redder than ever before. She couldn't help but laugh. "Shig, your face is really red!" "...Gah...! I'm sorry...!" "What's there to be sorry about? Are you assuming I hated it?" "Um... Y-yes..." "Hehe, well... You're wrong this time!" "...Heh." After that, they didn't really say anything. They just sat on the bench for a long while... and this time, he grabbed a hold of her arm, too. Meanwhile, Kizami bled so badly from Mayu's punches that he died. Satoshi continued to try to cheer Yoshiki up, until it eventually worked. Ms. Yui continued doing her job as normal, but she felt like there was a hole in her heart without a student... Seiko silently grieved. But she had Naomi to keep her company, and that's all she could really ask for. The end. (I guess this turned out being a mix of Mayushige and Ayushiki fanfiction. Let's just say my plans totally changed since I started, but I don't regret it! Once again, thank you and I hope you liked it!)
