I Just Walked


Simple walking..I just did..No one to bother..no one to scare..freedom..just staring at nothing..thinking..on a cold windy afternoon..I passed by the iconic Dammam Palace hotel ( my home for about 15 days!) and just roamed around..walking..till I saw this park..an ordinary park..women, children, family, friends, everything were just happy..were they? just like me? walking around..passing the time in a lazy day..where is the direction? I was lost in this city..no sense of north or east or west..just keep on walking..and I sat..to my surprise it was my needs..to just sit..and relax..and see those kids playing around..some are busy running and running and just keep on circling the small plaza..some boys were busy kicking those ball and mimicking a great football player..busy doing their stuff..and me..just sitting..and I was tired..no sense of time..no sense of direction..I guess not..I just sit..and watched as time went by..minutes..minutes and I stood..and walked without knowing where to go..and I found myself outside the park..bustling metropolis..silence..kept on screaming on my ear..the bustling nonsense..it did not make sense..I was here..

and I got a taxi..to Shatea mall please..and that was all I wanted..to have a cup of coffee there..temporary madness..temporary losing my mind..and I found bliss..peace..

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!
