Dubizzle is one weird establishment.
According to their website "Dubizzle (pronounced doo-biz-zull) stems from an ancient Greek word, dubizelius, meaning: really-awesome-and-easy-to-use-community -portal-for-Dubai- that-will-be-displayed-and-accessed- through-a-futuristic-device-called-a-computer- that-won't-be-invented-for-another-2-3-thousand-years (rough translation). "
Despite their attempts at bad humour, I searched for 'dubizelius' on Websters and they suggested 'dubiously' which was fine by me, considering the brain behind their corporate logo. I wonder which agency burnt their heads on coming up with such a masterpiece.

But the Oh My Dubai Photos made up for all the wizardry. Somewhat.

Why is everything burning there? Is it something to do with the Oasis centre? Or a revival of suttee?

Or is Dubizzle advocating self-immolation in face of the horror of 21st century Dubai?

Dubizzle is the shizzle?
Hurrah for outdated 90's rap-speak!

On one of the Exhibitons in DWTC as I was coming down the escalator, two guys behind me were discussing what the new Gas company had to do with Better homes (their office below and dubizzle branding outside)
....well on first glance Dubizzle does look like a gas company logo.
