Sandstorm Cut Burj Khalifa into Half!

it's one of those days where i can draw smiley faces on the window sill using just my finger, and discovered that sand has invaded my kitchen.

a sandstorm hits dubai yet again! click here for my first experience with dubai's sandstorm!

can you see the tallest building in the world in this picture?

a mild one, but still it lasted more than a day. we went to safa park yesterday morning, hoping to go in and snap some photos with burj khalifa in the background.

but where was the burj? where is this tallest building in the world?


the sandy wind has actually enveloped the burj khalifa mid-air, giving the illusion of the burj being cut in half! at one point it actually got lost into the 'cloud of sand' above, looking like the beanstalk that jack climb up to!

the burj khalifa covered in sandy mist

here's hoping that the sky clears up by tomorrow. my boys need a day out in the sun!

eiii SCARY gilaaa!

never experience that in cairo. tp kat sini kalau mlm2 tu dgr angin bunyi kuat gilaa. tambah waktu duduk kat tingkat 8 kat umah sewa dulu. kadang tu bunyi mcm tingkap nak pecah, gedegung gedegang, punya kuatnya angin. mlm2 bunyi mcm hantu pun ade..

memang creepy gila!

kalau ada sandstorm, susah ke nak keluar rumah? is it like Haze? tak pernah experience benda ni.

>> teh, xlama la tu sure kat cairo pun ade sandstorm... bestnye angin bunyi camtu! perfect setting for reading ghost stories.... ;)

>> nadiah, xla slalu berlaku.. selama setahun lebih kat sini pun br 2 kali jadi.. tp mmg mcm jerebu teruk & bwk keta mmg bahaya psl xnmpak

kak nur, yup - lebih kurng mcm haze. but worse sbb mmg berpasir lantai kalo biar tingkap bukak! ari tu nk bwk budak2 ni jln2 gi makan icecream tp kensel psl bahaya kalo klua...nk drive pun vision xclear sgt.
