Destination-JEDDAH KSA

From Eastern region to Central region and finally where i am?Finally i arrived to my final destination the western part of Saudi Arabia I'm here now in JEDDAH.

My team leader in Riyadh told me that the western team of my company is in need of pharmacist without any hesitation i volunteered myself to be part of that team.A big yes from my boss and i am the chosen one. They give me a week to pack all my stuff. They booked my flight via Saudia Air on August 21 a day before the ramadan.Today is my second day here in Jeddah.There is something about Jeddah that makes me excited and its up for me to discover as what all my Saudi friends told me Jeddah is the kingdom's haven of gentle and friendly people.

O BELOVED JEDDAH!
YOU HAVE A SPECIAL STATUS IN THE HEART.
YOUR LOVE IS SACRED LIKE A MAGICAL BOX FULL OF SECRETS
YOU ARE AN ARID PORT AND TOWN,
BUT FROM THE ENDURING COMPASSION!

The map of Jeddah.The head of the region is Prince Khalid Al Faisal. The location of Jeddah is in west coast of Saudi Arabia on the Red Sea. With a population of 3.4 million and the second largest city in Saudi arabia.

This is the King Khaled Int's Airport in Riyadh. Almost all of the passengers bound to Jeddah are male pilgrims i made this conclusion because of their attire not a thobe but a plain big white towel wrapped around to their bodies.


I'm too early at the airport but sad to say the flight is delayed by almost half an hour prior to that i had my meal at the airport the saudi kabsa-a roasted chicken and a yellow rice.After an hour and forty five minutes in the air finally i arrived at Jeddah safe and happy.What a beautiful sweet escape experience for me....lol

Been to Jeddah once but only for a few hours. Siguro nga you have to stay a bit longer to appreciate it. Just the other day a friend had a visitor from Jeddah. Pinoy din. He said (to my surprise), mahigpit din pala ang Jeddah. Mas medyo unrestricted pa rin daw ang Alkhobar.

Now we'll see if it's true. Ingat po jan. Ramadan Kareem sa u. (I didn't know that you're a pharmacist).
