The Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi has put up the most expensive Christmas tree this year worth US $11 Million decorated with bracelets, necklaces and watches!
“It holds a total of 181 diamonds, pearls, emeralds, sapphires and other precious stones according to Khalifa Khouri, owner of Style Gallery which provided the jewellery.”
Apparently the Hotel’s clever marketing team came up with this idea and now they got the whole world talking about it. They are even trying to get a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records. First they had the gold vending machine and now this, I wonder whats next!

I came across this funny bit of news on Arab Times today.
“Police have arrested a Syrian man for impersonating police, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily. The arrest came when the Syrian went to the Rumaithiya Police Station, introduced himself as 1st lieutenant and sought the release of a person who was in police custody. The officer on duty who knew all his colleagues who graduated in the same batch from the Police Academy suspected the behavior of the Syrian and asked him some questions related to police affairs. The Syrian turned out to be a roadside watermelon seller.”
All I can say is this dude’s got balls the size of watermelons!

Just found out that the Hooters Girls are heading out (or probably already here) to visit thousands of troops stationed in Iraq & Kuwait. Their Facebook page had this news posted on 6th December and here is what they wrote:
“4 Hooters Girls from around the country are heading out today to visit thousands of troops stationed in Iraq & Kuwait next week. Hooters partnered with Pro Sports MVP to coordinate the tour alongside country music band BrokeDown Cadillac who will be performing during a 10-day morale, welfare and recreation tour.”
Are you serious?!

Just came across this funny game where you get to play as Julian Assange and you are required to download 300,000 secret files by plugging your USB in President’s laptop as soon as he falls asleep in the Oval office.

Check out the new video for Daft Punk’s first single ‘Derezzed’ off the TRON: Legacy soundtrack. The song is badass and so is the video.
Update: Just found out that Monster Cable teamed up with Disney to produce TRON inspired headphones, I was checking out the gallery and they look very sleek. [Link]
They even have Daft Punk edition of these headphones! [Link]

So lastnite I watched Step Up 3D and to my expectation the movie was as good (dance wise) as I predicted. If you dig for great storyline then I would say this movie has very less to offer. They used the term BFAB (Born from a boombox) that referred to the natural born dancers and that was freakin cheesy and unnecessary.
One of the scene that really cracked me up was Camille dressed up as one of the Olsen Twins for Halloween Costume party and she had an empty Starbucks coffee cup as part of the costume, that was priceless.
Overall it was an OK movie to kill time with satisfying dance scenes.
