Trivia picked up from one of the company's round table meetings.

The famous Burj Khalifa in Dubai used to be called Burj Dubai but Dubai had shortage in construction budget thus they had to borrow money from their money-master neighbor, the oilngas capital (yes, oilngas, oil and gas - such a word exists, I picked it up from Eric Weiner's Geography of Bliss - a wonderful book for one's inner wanderlust), Qatar. Thus Burj Dubai became Burj Khalifa. I did not verify this trivia anymore (haha!)  but regardless of its accuracy, I feel excited that in a little over 24 hours, I'll be seeing the royal Burj-ness, face to face, in real life. Albeit, from across the street kasi picture lang daw niya, may bayad na.=) Time to pack!!
