Alfresco Dining on The Hill in Ushaiger

Before perambulating the historical village of Ushaiger on that day, we actually laid back at another favorite spot in the place which is simply known as The Hill. It is a picnic spot surrounded by a quickset hedge of two to three meters high. You can also see outhouses, a jungle gym, and a few…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward

‎”You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond

I once heard from a movie that ruins are gifts as they pave the way to transformation not to mention to fascinating glimpse of the past. This is what I realized when I visited the Ushaiger Heritage Site in the small blond town of Shagra (about 200 km northwest of Riyadh) the other day. What I captured…

The Flowers, The Greens, and The Bees

A few meters away from our office in the capital city’s Exit 7, there’s this nursery called “Distinct Agricultural Ways Establishment” where passersby will surely throw a second look at the vibrant colors of various blossoms and plants displayed for sale.

Creating Something Beautiful Out Of The Mundane

My friends and I visited one of Almarai Company’s depots down south Riyadh last 16 August 2012 for the sake of plain wandering; to have a different kind of weekend. We were privileged to be given a gate pass embedded with free board and lodging a week before the trip so giving in to the…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far

Now that I’m miles away from my family, looking at the sun as it sets, like in this picture, is like seeing them via Skype. They seem so visible and reachable; so near, yet so far. So bright, yet so dark… This scenery used to rock me to the cradle of peace. What I know…

Snapshots Through The Window

One of the things that I recently love doing whenever I go places here in Riyadh is to take snapshots through the window. Capturing the beautiful parts of the city makes me love the place all the more. That is, by taking snapshots, which is the right thing to do so to say as taking…

The Wandering Feet (& Mind) To The Center Of The East

He never dreamt of setting footprints overseas. Neither did he long for a job outside the walls of his dear country. BUT, a month ago, the story turned out close to those statements; he had no power to stop fate when it asked the universe to conspire and bring his wandering feet (& mind) to…
