>Coming Home From Home

>After a gruesome 15 hours airplane ride from Sydney to Abu Dhabi and 1 more hour to Dammam, I finally arrived to my second home – Saudi Arabia – on 12 May 2008. Unlike Sydney, the weather in Saudi Arabia is beginning to get hot. Bigla akong nanibago. May suot kasi akong makapal na wool jacket nang umalis ng Australia, ‘tapos ang init-init naman nang daratnan mo.

I still have jetlag. I am waking up at midnight and feel sleepy at 3 in the afternoon. Nangangapa pa ako sa trabaho. Mahirap din naman agad malaman ang mga nangyari sa loob ng 3 buwan.

The ground floor of our staff accommodation building is already finished but I did not move in. I am in my OLD portable, the one I used when I first came in. Hintayin kong matapos yong first floor at doon ako lilipat. Ang hirap din kasi nang palipat-lipat papalit-palit ng kuwarto. Nahahalungkat mo yong mga gamit mong hindi mo na sinusuot pero hindi mo pa tinatapon o pinamimigay. Tila ba may sentimental value pa rin ang mga iyon. Butas-butas na nga at naninilaw na ay gusto mo pang isuot.
