Christmas day in Jeddah is just like an ordinary working day. As an expatriates we tried to make the best we can to celebrate the occasion. My friends and I decided to have some get together last night. Each one of us brought a gift and a dish to share with everyone.
My first attempt to make a cheese cake was a success! (I believed so 🙂 ).
Our little angels sang a carol for us and even did some fun dress up and posed with our very own sir chief! 🙂 My friend looks like Chinese and so the night was full of fun with our very own Santa (made in China).
And so there goes another Christmas in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. God blessed.
I also wish everyone to have a Prosperous New Year!!!
Hi mom! I have written a lot about you… today it would be different, I would like to share to you what my first son had written about me. Yes about his mom! (that’s me, with a capital M and a broad smile). For without you, I would not be receiving this kind words from him. You have made me what I am today. Thank you so much!
“After 7 years in college. After countless mistakes. Learning the hard way. After all that, all you had to say was “the past is gone and done with. You learned from it and it made you stronger. Now, go and chase your dreams”. Okay, maybe those weren’t your words but I think I got the gist of it. This was the day you took me to Hawaii. You helped me cross off the first of many places I want to go to before I die. And the same way you introduced me to drawing when I was a kid, this was also the same day you bought me my first camera. Thank you mom, for letting me learn the hard way and sticking with me through those days. Thank you for pushing me to keep chasing my dreams. I love you so much.”
Isn’t it wonderful mom? I owe you a lot of things, a lot of wisdom, a lot of beauty (in and out) but most of all, I owe you an infinite love that only mothers can give and this is pay back time… HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!
