So Far (yet) So Near


The wonders of technology..via facebook..via skype..via facetime..via kakao talk.via email..via my blogs..I can connect, reconnect, get news, have some meaningful conversations with my loved ones anywhere in the world even if I am here in the Middle East! Thank you technology! thank you very much that it ease the burden and the loneliness that sometimes (most of the time??) creeping in my head.

Every Friday or Saturday ( weekends here) I have the chance to talk (via video thru skype) to my mother and nephews and sister. And just this day I have installed Kakao Talk so that I could talk free of charge to my nephews. I had wonderful kumustahan to my niece Tintin who at this time (almost midnight earlier) was still wide awake!

Living abroad is not that hard now unlike before. In our fingertips and palms we could talk and reconnect with our family anywhere as long as you are "connected" via wifi or internet router or data plan. Indeed life is much easier with this convenient gadgets.

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!
