    Kung me kakilala kayo na magpupunta ng Saudi bilang Domestic Helper at Family driver, paki-discourage sila na wag na tumuloy at sa HK o Singapore na lang...

    Di sila sakop ng Saudi Labor law...kawawa lang sila....

    Yung Ate ng mom ko nakapangasawa ng Arab na napaka-bait. AS IN. tapos may anak sila dalawa. Taga-Riyadh sila. Hindi sila yung kagaya ng tumatak sa isip ng iba na masungit, bastos, at siyempre mabaho. Kabaligtaran sila. Yung tatay mabait kahit in-laws niya lang kami parang anak niya na kami kung ituring pag nandito sila. At daig pa kami sa pasikot-sikot sa Manila. Syempre magaling din mag-tagalog. Tapos yung mga pinsan ko, mababait din. Every year sila umuuwi dito.

    Pansin ko lang halos lahat ng teens sa Saudi eh yung tipong walang ibang hilig kundi Hard Metal na songs, Tapout and Affliction shirts at siyempre, Mayaman. Yung pinsan ko nga eh, naka Subaru Legacy (pang mayaman na ito sa atin), pero yung mga kaibigan niya naka Land Cruiser, LX570, Porsche 911, Porsche Cayenne, etc.

    Nakwento ng pinsan ko na sa Saudi pag lumaki na na ang mga pinsan mong babae, hindi mo na sila pwedeng maka-salamuha at makita ng basta basta.

    At ang oras daw nila ganito, pag umaga tulog sila tapos pag gabi na, dun sila lalabas at mamasyal.

    Hindi lahat ng Arabo eh mabaho, bastos at masungit. Kaya umusok ako sa inis nung nag-discuss yung Values teacher namin tungkol sa "buhay Saudi", eh saksakan naman ng racial comments yung pinagsasabi niya, naturingan pa namang Values teacher.

    Ang Arabo, kapag naging kaibigan mo sila, parang kapatid na ang turing nila sa iyo.......siguro kahit naman anong lahi, meron o marami namang ganyan....me mabuti at me masama...

    Ang mahirap pakisamahan e yung mga di maayos ang pinag-aralan o di nakapag-aral....akala mo laging galit kung magsalita....pero natural na pala nila yun....
    Capital Riyadh, jan maraming bigtime na arabo....kaya maski bata pa makikita mo nakaCayenne na...

    pagkaka-alam ko kapag tumuntong na ng 9years old ang anak na babae, dapat inihihiwalay na ito ng tulugan sa magulang o kapatid na lalaki...

    Kapag niregla na, dapat me takip na ang mukha....at tama ka, di na pwede makisalamuha sa lalaki na di kapatid at tatay...bawal na....

    Yun naman e kapag Ramadan, fasting sila the whole day kaya gising sa gabi hanggang madaling araw....pero kapag ordinary days, normal din lang...

    Bob Marley ang paborito ng mga kabataang lalaki dito...

    Sa mga babae, No idea, siguro mix na din me english at arabic....

    Filipinos in Saudi Arabia

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Jump to: navigation, search
    Filipinos in Saudi ArabiaTotal population1,020,000–1,500,000, possibly 1,800,000[1][2][3]LanguagesTagalog, other languages of the Philippines, English and Arabic
    ReligionPredominantly Roman Catholic, Protestant and Islamic minorities
    Related ethnic groupsFilipino people, Overseas Filipinos
    Filipinos in Saudi Arabia are either migrants or descendants of the Philippines living in Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is currently the largest hirer of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs),[4] and has the largest Filipino population in the Middle East.[5] Filipinos make up the fourth-largest group of foreigners in Saudi Arabia,[1] and are the second-largest source of remittances to the Philippines.[6]
    Contents


    Migration history

    Filipinos first arrived in Saudi Arabia in 1973, when a group of Filipino engineers migrated to the country.[7] Today, staff at the Saudi Arabian embassy in the Philippines process between 800 and 900 jobs for Filipinos daily.[2] In 2008, Saudi Arabia had 300,000 job orders for Filipinos.[3] Later, in the first time hiring Filipino medical professionals, Saudi Arabia announced intentions to hire 6,000 Filipinos as doctors and nurses between 2009 and 2011.[2] In addition to medical professionals, Filipinos work as automotive workers,[8] construction workers,[9] and engineers,[7] as well as in the fields of desalination,[9] petroleum production and processing,[9] telecommunications,[9] and transportation.[9]
    There are 24 Filipino international schools in Saudi Arabia, 18 of which are found near Riyadh or Jeddah.[10]
    Labour issues

    Every year, an unknown number of Filipinos in Saudi Arabia are "victims of ***ual abuses, maltreatment, unpaid salaries, and other labor malpractices," according to John Leonard Monterona, the Middle East coordinator of Migrante, a Manila-based OFW organisation.[11] Some Filipinos are attracted and transported to Saudi Arabia illegally, where they are left stranded without work.[12] Between January and August 2008, approximately 800 throughout the country sought help at Migrante chapters,[12] and 922 others were deported to the Philippines in the first three months of 2008 after overstaying their visa requirements.[13] At one point in early 2008, 103 Filipinos stranded in Jeddah lived in a tent camp under a bridge before being able to be processed for deportation.[

    Ex-Saudi OFW po ako :D Kakauwi ko lang sa Pinas early this year.

    My experience working/living there is a mixture of happy and not-so-happy memories, but mostly happy memories Here goes my rant...

    Not-so-happy:
    1. Mahirap mahiwalay sa pamilya. Na-miss ko ang birth ng first born son ko.
    2. Experience racial/religious prejudice at work. In my company, apparently, "race/religion" is more important than actual work performance.
    3. Ang kabataan doon ay napaka-KSP at minsan nakaka-disturb ng katahimikan ng ordinaryong expats doon. May co-worker ako na naglalakad to work at nakasalubong ng mga kabataan, bigla ba naman syang pinagbabato ng walang dahilan. Malalaking bato pa ha. Buti di nadale.
    4. Car accidents? Expats ang automatic may kasalanan kapag locals ang ka-enkwentro. May friend ako, sya ang nabangga, sya pa ang nakulong.
    5. Limited movement for my family


    Happy:
    1. No taxes, good salary hehe
    2. A liter of gasoline more cheaper than a liter of mineral water. 60 halalas lang haha.
    3. Shawarama, brosted chicken, hummus, etc.
    4. Developed real friendship with colleagues and co-workers
    5. Got to buy 2 cars there (not at same time though), couldn't buy one while in Pinas hehe.

    That's all I can think think of for now
