So Jeddah A month Later.

See where should I start...It's been well over a month since I arrived in Jeddah, KSA. I have to say second times around in Saudi, I am adjusting much quicker and better. Of course being able to work here on a valid visa and have got my Iqama(kinda like a PR card) is a huge relief. As far as social life goes, I currently have none. I mean I am not big on compound parties or anything like that. For the most part I stay in my room and play Diablo 3 when I have free time. Cuz, you know those legendary items don't drop on their own. So far I've been able to not only opened a bank account, but also wired my first month pay back home. It feels nice now that I am the bread winner in the family. I think overall, life is good right now except occasionally I get little home sick, but the good thing is, after much contemplation, I've decided to go home during the summer break and enjoy Canada as much as I can, because I do miss it very much, even the snow shoveling. 

The Red Sea Behind me at Night
Since work is pretty busy most of the time, I only have free time on weekends, and sometimes afterwork in late evenings. One thing I've noticed is that I've been losing weight since I got here. It's mainly because I've stopped eating rice( trust it's hard, but they dont have asian rice in this part of the world), and I've also started to work out on a regular basis. Right now I am still doing mainly those cheesy workout DVD you can get from infomercials, but they do work to a certian degree, and it's always nice when you start to see results. I also had the chance to see the Red Sea at night, and it was beautiful, I took a low def picture, it does no justice to how beautiful the Red Sea is.

I feel whenever I'm writing an update my mind is always all over the place, it is always disorganized in a way that shows so well in my writing, not to the point you'd think I'm schizophrenic, but sometimes it feels like I can't concentrate on my train of thoughts. My explaination is there are just too many things on my mind all the time and it is hard to organize all of them and write them down in a orderly way. I'd rather have my writings all over the place, at least to me it is more authentic.

I'd love to meet some ethnic Chinese people, but so far I have no luck, maybe I should pay the Chinese Consulate here a visit, I just want to able to speak Chinese with someone, it is after all my mother tongue. I really miss all the East-Asian-ness from Canada. It is hard to be an East-Asian here in Saudi, mainly because they usually don't have anything related to my culture anywhere.

Cuteness Overload
On a final note, I will leave you with a picture of a pillow that I want to buy, but didn't because it is too expensive. It is this cutest little kitten with tiara and bling-out claws. It costs 150 Saudi Riyals, which is 40 US dollars...ya I aint gonna pay 40 bucks for a pillow, but only if it goes on sale, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I mean just look at it, how cute is it. This pillow screams out "Jessy". One day, if it goes on sale I will have this in my possession, if it is still available then. So here I will bid you good bye, and until next time my dearest readers.
