Just Another Day In Saudi


They say time flies if your having fun, i say no, cuz time also flies if your on a routine. Yes the word is routine here in saudi. Back home (Philippine) i complain about the traffic and hassle of going to work, now i think i'm actually missing it, 'cuz the hassle adds a little twist to my daily file.

The routine of home-work-home is such a tedious way of living to most Pinoy, for me it's a privilege. I feel like in total composure. Why? Because here i don't feel the everyday hassle of going to work, i just walk a little less than 10 mins to my office. Even if the summer is extreme hot here i don't bother but actually enjoy it (come winter it's also extremely cold here but no snow). I have a mindset to enjoy what i have, i was brought up like that and that's what life is all about. Like in Pinoy saying: weather weather lang iyan.

Another peaceful feeling is the load of work, Philippine employer want multi-tasking staff. Employer give a person 3 job description (higher if possible) but they gets upset if 1 out of 100 task they ask failed. I recall my former boss said to me, though i made 99 good thing but fall short of 1 task, i'm still a failure (what are u god to tell employees like that). But here my job description is what i do everyday. (This make me do blogging from my free time - productive don't you think?). Life, if i have known how easy work here i should have decided to come here much earlier in my life. But i can't bring the past back, i'm lucky to made the decision to try my luck abroad. (tgi good)
