    The ancient civilizations in the Middle East and Asia have always come out with the greatest architectural achievements in history: the Pyramids, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Taj Mahal to name a few...

    Now that they're sitting on "black gold", there's no reason for them not to outdo their ancestors. ;)

    The wonderful side effect of their cash splurge: employment for a lot of Filipinos in their hotels and resorts! :thumbsup:

    So most construction workers are Filipinos like the boom of the 70s and 80s in the ME? Parang Hongkong narin itong Dubai when all is said and done. They will turn desert into a green oasis. And that means they have to haul so much loam top soil to make it happen. Continent of Africa ang galing nayan as its the closest.
