Halcyon islands in Masbate to fire your summer!

Riyadh’s Ten Best Places To Watch The Sunset

When I was still working in the Philippines, sunset is no big deal to me. I didn’t feel that strong inclination to chase it up to make my day complete. But when I braved the corporate world in Riyadh five years ago, things changed. I struggled at coping with the kind of life expats have here…
