Some fans send flowers and some letters, but the gift sent by the Sultan of Brunei's son to songbird Mariah Carey is sure to top her list of fans for a very long time to come, for he sent her ₤3 million worth of diamonds.

24-year old Prince Azim, who is third in line to the Sultanate, showed just what a huge fan of the singer he really is when he gifted her an eight-carat flawless diamond and platinum necklace and matching ring, reports the Mirror.

And, the gift was delivered by private jet to the 'Emancipation of Mimi' singer just before she performed live in front of 20,000 fans at New York's Madison Square Garden recently.

"We were sent by private jet to deliver this gift," a representative said.

The gift certainly seemed to have the desired effect, for fans and guest performers both left the concert raving about the singer and her voice.

World's Greatest Driving Road

Just have a look What they have created in a desert...
The Jebel Hafeet Mountain Road in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is the greatest driving road in the world. Stretching for 7.3 miles and climbing nearly 4,000 feet, it boasts 60 corners and a surface so smooth that it would flatter a racetrack. It could easily be described as the eighth wonder of the world, but almost nothing is known about its creation.

The road is cut into the Jebel Hafeet mountain, the highest peak in the United Arab Emirates , the oil-rich Persian Gulf state. The mountain spans the border with Oman and lies about 90 minutes' drive southeast of the thriving city of Dubai . It looks down upon a dusty, desert landscape that belies a nation of astonishing wealth.
