I have been talking about my parents and sister’s move back to the Philippines since last year. Being in Saudi Arabia for so long made us more comfortable here than in our very own country, but the time has come and they’ve got to retire. I have actually seen their repatriation ticket, so that’s final and come January 2, we’re left here — me and Joy, with our very own families of course… but we’d surely miss mom, pops, and Fae. Ugggh… I feel so sad.
We’re currently making days count by going out more often, dining out all together and we actually have a tourist friend here next week and it will certainly make their last month and a half stay here more interesting because we shall be finding all the touristy places in Saudi Arabia. Who would have known that the Kingdom will be a tourist destination? No one, right?! But this is progress and definitely a good thing.
I really wish my parents and sis get to stay longer, but folks are getting older and they want to enjoy life traveling and fully retired. This is going to be a very depressing holiday.
