Happy Eid L Fitr

Yesterday was the start of EID L FITR, the end of Ramadhan, the holy month of Islamic world. Usually, companies in Saudi Arabia are closed for a week in observance of the feast.

However, due to the urgency of work and company commitments with our clients, we have only one day, the 23rd of October declared a non-working day. We can’t refuse to come to work because it will be paid, normal working day, plus a day overtime and a day paid bonus – Not so bad at all.

I spent my half day (23 October) in the hospital morgue where my late co-employee laid to rest (died due to stroke) temporarily waiting completion of his documents going back home.

But my one day vacation was not really a good one. I regret visited the city proper just to experience a horrible scene like in the movie, a disturb lady jump into the hood of my friend car pretending like Lito Lapid in his action stunt flick movies. Though the car was idle she was not hurt, I trembled because the law in Saudi Arabia in this kind of situation is in contrast at home. Our friend at the back seat of the car giggled and said “Pare nakarating si Darna sa Saudi ang layo ng lipad“.

Oh What a Day! Anyway, “HAPPY EID L FITR” to everyone!
