Breaking the Silence

Sorry, I have been quiet the past few days.  Things have gotten very busy in the office again.  You know I think I should make a formal complaint to  my employer since my real work is starting to get in the way of my blogging – yikes, tama ba yon?  Also, since joining Litratong Pinoy, I have become more active in going around (lurking) the blogosphere and this has partly contributed to my long silence.

Anyway, things have been quite the same in our house.  Luigi, Rafael and Marga are now down with colds and fever ever since we came back from The Lost Paradise of Dilmum in Bahrain two weekends ago.  As you all know by now, things like this can instantly turn our world upside down.  Although minor illnesses seem to be a regular part of our life here in the KSA, Pinky and I still have not yet gotten used to it… and I do not think we will ever be.  Oh, when will this end!

Looking on the brighter side of things, it is officially a month from today before Pinky and the children fly back to Manila for a much deserved R&R.  Their tickets and exit/re-entry visas have already been issued so there is really nothing that will or can stop them now… unless of course I refuse to drive them to the airport… hehehe!

We are also currently planning a weekend getaway in Dubai on the third week of this month.  This trip was totally unplanned.  We just saw that there were some good deals in the Internet and we decided that it may be a good time to see the place.  Anyway, it would be the perfect way to celebrate Marga’s 2nd birthday on June 3 and my 30+ birthday on May24. 

Our travel agent has not yet reverted back to us regarding the travel package so things are really still up in the air at the moment.  We are hoping, though, that everything pushes through as planned.  By the way, I would like to thank our blogging friend, Grey, for helping us with some inquiries.  She has been a resident of Dubai for sometime now and her inputs have helped us a lot in trying to look for a place where we can stay.  For all those who are not aware, hotel cost in Dubai is known for its unreasonably high prices so looking for a decent but reasonably priced hotel is a challange for budget conscious travellers like us.  Anyway, we really appreciate all your help, Grey.

Okay, that is all for now.  I have to go back to work.  Until next time.
