For Filipinos like me, finding good food here in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia is really a challenge. Middle Eastern people have a penchant for chicken and all I ever eat here mostly are chicken cuisine. There is occasional beef and seafood though, but it's very rare. Usually there's the Shawaya, Faham and KFC and all of them serve chicken. Nothing but chicken. You have the usual fastfood such as burgers and fries but I have an aversion towards fastfood.

I was tasked to read this book called "A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, 3rd Edition." Project Management is certainly a new field for a communication/media person like me. I was trying to look at PM the way I look at Communication Management. Both are complex and tedious. Both requires patience and dedication. This will be a long journey but I never turn my back on challenges.

When I was younger, I always told myself that I won't have to drive a car since I can just commute or ask somebody to drive for me. I should have known better.
Fast forward to the present. I am now getting the fruits of my foolish thinking of not learning how to drive when I was younger. Now I have to struggle in getting a driver's license here in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The problem I have now, well it's not easy to get a license for me because I am such a beginner at driving and I would have to get into a driving school that I know of. But if it will take me like forever (e.g. 2 months) to study driving and everything about it then it's gonna be a waste of time for me.
I went here in Riyadh not to drive but to excel in the office. I am an office personnel so I didn't really see much need for driving. But now... I just have to make or break that driving test.
Tomorrow I'll be back in that driving school to get the driver's license.

I've decided just now that I will start chronicling my Riyadh life. There are so many things happening here but I'm just letting all those things pass without documenting them. I'll talk about the places, food, people, etc. here in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

It's almost 3am here in Saudi Arabia but although my body is already tired, my mind just keeps itself awake; bothered by so many things running inside it.
One of the things that really keeps me thinking is about this blog. As of this writing, I've got 57,000 views already and counting. But I know that it is bot enough.
There are so many stories that I can input here but I don't know it just keeps escaping me. Everytime I try to write something it is as if my brain starts to shutdown, disinterested with anything related to writing.
Am I having an aversion to writing?
Writing is one of strengths. Before.
Now all I can write is this random thoughts in my mind which I am sure won't really go far. Pointless in short.
This blog has been running on a non-directional path. It has no focus and it has no aim whatsoever. All I wanted in the beginning is to become like Jessica Zafra who keeps on publishing books according to her daily life.
My life is full of twists and turns and I know that I can make this more interesting.
