Guitar Accessories

As I've mentioned earlier, my brother is a good guitarist. He has an addiction to it. So when he had the money, he bought 2 electric guitars and put a gear on them. He treats his guitars like his babies and we couldn't do anything about that. Oh, well at least it has something to do with his talent. And sometimes, we get the chance to listen to his guitar playing skills - for free. LOL!

Please Cover Your Hair!

Me, wearing a tarha

For non-Muslims, I think it's not necessarily needed to cover the hair all the time. It depends on the place and on the people you will meet. Because I see Filipinos in the mall or grocery store who don't cover their. I had this memorable experience when I had to report to our office. I approached this guy wearing tobe with headdress and asked something. He suddenly gave me a frown and told me, "Please cover your hair." LOL I didn't know that if we're going to our office, we had to cover our hair. So I immediately covered my hair with my tarha. I had really no idea about the Muslim or Saudi culture. But as time goes by, I'm learning to adapt and adjust with the help of my Filipino co-workers.

On Playing a Guitar

It was my childhood dream to learn how to play guitar because I am really a music lover and my two siblings especially my brother are good in playing the guitar. I tried to learn but I guess it's not my thing. More people are good guitar players nowadays. They even made stardom just by uploading their videos on popular social network sites. So I guess I would just be contented to listen to acoustic bars and sip my favorite margarita. LOL!

New World

What made me MIA for the past couple of months? Well, it was a big adjustment for me to have no internet connection for a couple of months. It feels like I haven't been online for a long year. But now, all is well (hopefully). Anyways, it's not that easy to get an internet connection especially that I was just new in this place. I'm in a foreign land... new place, new people, new workplace - everything is new for me in here. Though I didn't have a hard time adjusting before there are many Filipinos here. All of my flatmates are Filipinos, most of my workmates are Filipinos and whenever we go to the grocery near our place we still see a Filipino. It's just the place and culture that has changed. I arrived at Riyadh, KSA at night so I didn't really see how beautiful this place was. But all I can say is that it was hotter than the Philippines. It was already 10 in the evening when I arrived at our accommodation and I could feel how hot it was. It was holiday that time so I had to wait for 4 days before reporting in the office that means 4 days of being a bum in our accommodation. So I took the opportunity to sleep, eat and rest a lot because I knew after that it would be all work for me. 

This was the view I saw when I was first went out of our flat. I was on my way to the hospital where I will work.

It was really a new environment for me and I could feel the hot weather. I was really nervous that time because I was interviewed by our Medical Director. Good thing, the interview went well and I was assigned to the area where I was comfortable working at.
