Weekends here in Saudi Arabia is thursday and friday unlike in the Philippines its saturday and sunday.February 26 it was thursday a very beautiful and lucky day for me.You know what?because it was my day-off, no work for me until friday at four in the afternoon.
I got a great quantity and quality of sleep, almost ten hours.The weather was so fine not that hot not that cold and no sandstorm.What i did on thursday?clean my room, washed my clothes,cook,eat take a bath and prepare my self and went to Rashid mall in Khobar.It was the first prayer time in the evening when I arrived at the mall so all the stores and showrooms were closed and it will be open after 30 minutes.It was thursday so it was a family day and it means no bachelors are allowed to enter except expat like me?The security guard asked me
Secu:Inta kori?(are you korean?)
secu:Inta sini(are you chinese?)
Secu:Inta min(and you are?)
secu:wallah!!!mafi sem sem inta filibini.(really ,you look like not a Pilipino)
me:fih muskila sadiq?(any problem my friend)
secu:mafih muskila,yallah ro,filibini miya-miya.(no problem,come go inside,pilipino the best)
while walking going inside the mall at the back of my mind i was asking myself ano ba ang itsura ko anong lahi?,ay basta pinoy ako tapos lol.After 30 minutes the stores were open.The first store taht i visited is the sony to check if the bag and case for the sony dslr that i bought before is available sad to say again it was out of stock.Almost all of the stores were on sale.After an hour while i was fitting for a rubber shoes in reebok that was on 70% off that i bought i heard again the sound,the signal for prayer time for our muslim friends,the last one for that night so it mean to say all the stores again will be closed for another 30 minutes.Hay sarado na naman magaantay na naman bumukas.open sesame ayan bukas na.
Went to Jarir bookstore and purchased books i spend a lot of my time at the booksore.After that searched for the best buy for the other stores.I dont have the intention to buy a watch but i fell in love to the design at a very resonable price so i got one.Tired and hungry thats why i checked the newly open branch of Johnny Rockets in the kingdom i ordered one for take out beacause its now getting late and i dont want to eat it alone on that restaurant.Yes i did it all alone because all of my friends were all busy then.Home sweet home and shared the food with my roomate.Untill next day off lol.
