PhotoHunt - Funny signs - Dubai



The malls in Dubai are so large that it hard to get around them. At the Ibn Battuta Mall, you can catch the indoor shuttle bus to get from one department... clear over to the next. It is 5.4 million square feet inside.

Look how big this indoor display is - and it was one of many. Alessandro and I loved seeing Dubai and are looking forward to going back there soon.





This is my entry for funny signs.

Ok, I can't resist - here is a sign I made recently:



P.S. Go and look at this post by TorAa - I just love it!

OMW that sounds incredible, my kind of mall!! What a stunning display!

Lynn said...

The largest mall in the Philippines (Mall of Asia) provide carts mostly for the senior citizens to take from point A to point B inside the mall. They're like golf carts with two to three row seats. But I was amazed to read of a shuttle bus inside a mall. That big huh. :)

Hootin' Anni said...

I wanna go there.

Mine's posted...stop by and see if you can figure it all out!!

JesieBlogJourney said...

When I was in Dubai, the mall was not built yet. Glad to learn from you. Wow! it's really huge.

I love the Siamese cat sign. My friend has the same kind of cat which watches TV with us and fought with me to use the threadmill.

glynis said...

Great take on this theme.

I absolutely love seeing what Pyewacket is up to. He’s such a talented kitty! Love that picture of him, all stretched out. It makes me want to measure his 'diving' length.

Daisy said...

I never knew there were malls so big! That's pretty neat.

5.4 million square feet inside? Wow that is huge! You stumped me for a moment when you posted this 2 days before it was Saturday here :)
I thought for a moment I had the wrong day.

MoMo said...

I love the flying siamese sign - isn't fun to be raining siamese?

SS is getting whackier by the day. Is time for her to finish that thesis.

tigerfish said...

Time to visit Dubai. It sounds fun interesting and looks colorful and vibrant!

Dragonstar said...

Dubai sounds wonderful, and those signs are great.
But the sky-diving Siamese is a wonderful sign!
