Christmas at Westin Jeddah hotel.

Pagkahaba-haba man daw ng prusisyun sa Blogspot din ang tuloy...Hello bloggers ,hello world.It took a year to make this post here.Anong petsa na 2010 na lol.Well sorry for the long time of not making some updates of my whereabouts here in the desert.

In a land so far away from my birth place and family and where christmas celebration is forbidden,I exist. But how do i survived from that occasion,well me and my friends decided to celebrate it in Westin Jeddah hotel for a night.This hotel is located along Jeddah Corniche fronting the Red sea.But some circumstances happened that is beyond my control,a call of duty in work on christmas day.Of all the day and my first time to celebrate it in Jeddah that very same day is the un avoidable year end inventory,Sigh!!!!The inventory team changed their schedule from the date that was agreed upon ahead of the given time.Kung sabagay trabaho nga naman ang pinunta ko dito sa disyerto.

Okay heres the view of Westin Jeddah

The swimming pool. I dont like the location of the pool it is located in front of the lobby of the hotel.Westin composed of two buildings,the main building where most of the rooms for the guest are located and this one in the photo is the other one where the gym and the banquet hall can be found.

Green Anthurium flower that adds beauty to the hotel.

The red,green and white wave design carpet of the hotel that makes me dizzy if you stare that long on the floor.Thanks for this carnation flower adorned the coffee tables where i shifted my eyes that for a little of time healed my dizziness.

The decoration of the wall gives you an atmosphere that you can feel the spirit that you are in Saudi Arabia because of this arbic art masterpiece.

The moroccan inspired bathroom

The Galleon wood decor that was used during the sea food night buffet party of westin.Unluckily i havent tried because im late due to traffic coz i have work until 10 pm and it so happened it is thurday and it is weekend in Saudi Arabia so most of the families were headed to corniche for picnic taking advantage of the perfect weather. The seafood buffet closed at midnight and all of the seats were occupied.So i have no choice but to look for food.I found myself on that noche buena you know what where?in Burger King.I have to sleep early coz the following day I still have to work due to the Year End inventory.

From the moment i open my eyes to salute a brand new day, This is the one of a kind of view that will greet to you.Beautiful scennery from my room in Westin overlooking the Red Sea.

I thought for the first time i saw this,that its is a towel.I was wrong coz this is prayer mat, a customized one offered to our muslim fellows and only can be found in WestIn. Thats all folks, my memories of Christmas day in the desert.

Dacz, ang hirap mag celebrate ng pasko dito sa ating kaharian no? Kahit kami dito sa Eastern Region eh ganyan din.

Mukhang maganda yung Westin Hotel. I've been to Jeddah a few times already and I was fortunate to stay in the Hilton and Red Sea Palace (company sponsored kasi). The Hilton is beautiful. You might want to consider staying there next Christmas.

By the way, thanks for dropping by my site too. Hope to read more from you soon.

Tama ka dacz. Ang sagwa nga tingnan na yung swimming pool nasa harap ng hotel.

It should be located somewhere hidden and not in full view of arriving guests. Nakaka-asiwa tingnan for both clothes and half-naked clients, di ba?
