Oprah arrives for Dubai biggest party ever!

More depressing news in the papers today. More people lost their jobs. Few Malaysian expats here also are already unemployed.

A South African lady friend (but not Charlize Theron look-alike) who was my comrade during Palm Jumeirah project and now working as IT big boss at the latest 5-star hotel on the Palm, sent a SMS, haven't received your invite to the opening of Atlantis?

Oprah Winfrey, Robert De Niro, Charlize Theron and Denzel Washington will grace the red carpet as they arrive in town for arguably the biggest party Dubai has ever seen.

Yes, ever! Said A-listers will be joined by, among others, Lindsay Lohan and her friend Samantha Ronson, Lily Allen, Mary Kate Olson, Misha Barton, Priyanka Chopra, Janet Jackson and beau Jermaine Dupri, Jessica Simpson's ex-husband Nick Lachey and his current girl Vanessa Minillo, former basketball superstar Michael Jordon, the model Petra Nemcova, and Theron's husband Stuart Townsend.

The one-night celebration is due to bring the world's first man-made palm island to a complete standstill as the VIP guests are chauffeur-driven to the venue. Palm residents have even been urged to return to villas and apartments by 2pm to avoid being denied entry to their homes. At a cost of $20million (Dh73 million) the lavish party will play host to around 2,500 celebrity and royal guests and a number of VIPs from the UAE.

I will not be there for sure, enough of entertainment extravaganza. Even when I was in TV3, I hardly joined those Pesta Lagu finals, except when M. Nasir was running for juara. The biggest shows I have seen were ones at Kodak theatre in LA and MGM hotel in Las Vegas.
But if I were there at the party bash, I would like to meet Robert De Niro, Denzel Wahington and of course Oprah, if not Michael Jordan.
These are the real big names in my favourite list.
The rest can queue to meet me, he he he!
(Note : Paris Hilton did not come as this is not a Hilton hotel....)

Pak Man tak faham sebenarnya ke mana arah tuju pembangunan Dubai ini,Pak Man rasa akhirnya jadi macam 'menang sorak kampung tergadai'.
