Do The Math

Sometimes when you have nothing to do here in Saudi in a nice weekends I just run my thoughts on some figures. Some figures that matters to me. And most of them are so close to my heart;

- my income for a year - sometimes I calculated it minus the expenses - and I am glad I have made this decision - forget about the TAX hahahaha!

- my days before coming again to the Philippines - and tomorrow will be my first month..I don't want to do the countdown! just be it and enjoy the stay!

- converting the value of every purchase I am making here - an Iphone is about 2400 SR (multiply by 11 pesos) and other simple items - I should be get over it..just remember that most of the items here is much cheaper than the Philippines' price.

- just thinking the extreme coldness - about 7 degree and the other side - extreme hotness 55 degrees in August!

- 3G, 4G? all I know the internet connection here is much better!

- sometimes I am wondering how many kilometers Dammam is from Manila? Google it!

- population of Saudi as compared to its big area of land..density I guess?

- lastly how many oil and gas Saudi still has? - the very reasons why we are here to work!

* is this my way of coping with "homesickness" I guess so hahahaha!


  1. try to avoid math when you purchase esp filipino food...we will lose our appetite..haha

Fishing - It's More Fun In Dammam!

QIPP Pinoy Team did it again! last Thursday night and we had so much fun in Dammam Cornich catching fish and actually grilling it..then had some picnic with rice and vegetables - all Pinoy style food in the land of the king and oil!..

And I think this is our life in the face of unknown fears and distant family - creating friendships and lasting memories that once we are having fun in this country that is often mistakenly as boring and no fun will be generated..well we are wrong and thanks God for that!
