Last night, two of my friends invited me for a dinner at Pizza Hut.  We had a grand time eating those two large pizza's, all by the three of us, huh.

Eid Mubarak!

Today marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan which is commonly known as Eid Al-Fitr. For 30 days of Ramadan, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset, refraining from food, drink, smoking, and sex.  It is holiday in Saudi Arabia for about 6 days and I'm wishing our Muslim brothers "Eid Mubarak" (a traditional greetings which means a blessed celebration).

Ramadan Kareem

I had been in Saudi Arabia for 23 years. During these years, I was one of the millions of OFW who respect and follow the rules of Saudi Arabia.  I had met and make friends with Saudis  especially to my colleagues and officemates in our company.  Saudis are friendly and kind people. Although we are different in our religion we always respect each others faith. One of the sacred month in Saudi Arabia is Ramadan, where our Muslim brothers and sisters observed the holy month with fasting practiced daily from sunrise to sunset.  Ramadan had started last June 18 and will probably end on July 17.  As a sign of respect to our Muslim brothers we always greet them Ramadan Kareem meaning a blessed Ramadan. In addition, non-Muslims are not allowed to eat, drink, or smoke in public as respect to the sacredness of Ramadan and the feelings of Muslims. During Ramadan, many people flock to hypermarkets, department stores, malls, and shops in the evening. Stores are open from 9PM up to 2AM. There are lots of sale items to offer from these malls, shops, and stores. Families are buying new clothes for their children, foods and groceries, some are buying new furniture, appliances, and personal gadgets. After Ramadan is Eid Al-Fitr, the religious holiday celebrated by the Muslims all over the world that marks the end of Ramadan.

Tommy Hilfiger Cologne Spray

Since Ramadan had just started for the last two weeks, I'm again on a buying spree. Branded shops, hypermarkets, and supermarkets are offering discounts and sales on their products. Even perfume shops offers 50% discount on every cologne spray and perfumes.  I bought recently two 100 ml of one of my favorite cologne spray TOMMY on a 50% discount at Al-Ramaniyah Mall in Al-Khobar.  And everytime I used this cologne, my officemates keeps on asking what cologne I'm using because of its nice and aromatic smell.  Actually its a refreshing cologne as if you had just finished your shower!
