Excuse me for the late posting. Nevertheless there is an advance announcement too. For more details please refer to the Press Release 18 November 2010 from the Philippines Embassy in Riyadh..
PRESS RELEASE NO. -58-2010
18 November 2010
New Schedule of “Embassy on Wheels” in the Eastern Province
There will be two more “Embassy on Wheels” or EOW services in Al-Khobar and one in Jubail before the end of the year.
The EOW will be held at the International Philippine School in Al-KhobaronNovember 25-26andDecember 16-17 with the usual cooperation and support of Filipino community leaders and volunteers from various organizations.
The venue for the EOW in JubailonDecember 9-10 will be announced as soon as it is confirmed with the help of the Filipino community in Jubail.
In continuation of the new ePassport services started last month,
the following arrangement will be observed at the EOW in Al-Khobar:
No. of ePassports
Nov. 25 THU
8:00AM – 5:00PM
Nov. 26 FRI
8:00AM – 12:00PM
About one hundred (100) pending ePassport applications from the
previous EOW will be prioritized and added to the number to be encoded
on Thursday, Nov. 25.
As previously announced, all ePassport applicants are required to appear before the consular staff
to have their photos, signatures and finger prints taken, which means
there is no need to bring any photos anymore. SR240.00 will be charged
as ePassport fee.
To claim their new passports, applicants are once again reminded to
bring their old passports and receipts. Representatives must present an
authorization letter signed by the concerned applicant.
Because of present limitations in the number of ePassport applicants
that can be fully served during the EOW, the Embassy advises those who
do not need to renew their passports yet to consider postponing their
application, and for those already scheduled to travel within one or
two months to apply instead for the extension of the validity of their
The Embassy is once more trying to expand the coverage of the EOW to
places with large concentration of Filipinos and studying possible
ways of making reservations or appointments for the EOWs in order to
address the problem of long queues that usually form around the EOW
venue hours before the opening of the service. END
It was really very busy week long Hajj Holiday. After accompanied my first batch of friend and followed the fishing with my flatmate. Last Wednesday, my best friend Alvin and his family came from Riyadh. I met them at 1:00 pm in Mc Donald Al Khobar Corniche. We went to Jollibee to order some lunch. It so happened that it prayer time. We finally got a bucket of Chicken Joy after an hour.
Lunch at the park
Assembled a tent for the kids
Last time we were here alone. But this time the beach coast were occupied not only by Filipinos but also some young Saudi and other nationalities as well. I have mentioned before that we called this place Filipino beach because most of the Filipino camped here.
Unfortunately this place have no trash bin so we can't blame the people who littered around. That including us! I hope someday they will make this place beautiful.
This is Alvin and his daughter Jasmin.
Old boats displayed along the bay park.

Spent the night at the park. Jasmin enjoyed this giant balloon slides.
Habang nakikinig ako sa balita noong isang araw tungkol sa bagong slogan ng Department of Tourism (DOT) ay unang nasa isip ko ang isang palabas sa ABS-CBN tuwing umaga at isang noon time show. Ang bagong campaign slogan ay "Pilipinas Kay Ganda". Yung palabas sa umaga ay " Umagang Kay Ganda" at sa tanghali naman ay "Plipinas Win na Win".
Today ay binasako ang balita tungkol Pilipinas Kay Ganda slogan. At totoong medyo may mga against dito. Isa na ay may pagkasimilarity daw sa design tourism campaign ng Poland which is Polska. Pangalawa ay dapat ay nasa wikang Ingles para masmaintindihan ng mga foreigners. Ikatlo dapat gamitin ang dating slogan na "WOW Philippines" dahil mas epektibo ito. At meron din nagbiro na may pagka Kapamilya. Paano na daw ang Kapuso at Kapatid?
Kung ako ang tatanungin ay dapat nga sa Ingles kaysa sa tagalog. At dapat maging maingat ang nag design ng logo nito. Para hindi tayo masabihan ng copy cat. Catching din talaga ang WOW Philippines. Samantalang ang Pilipinas Kay Ganda ay too common. By the way the new slogan is still in planning stage, not yet official. Mas effective kung magkaroon sila ng slogan contest.
Kahapon sinama ako ng aking flatmate, si Richard, para mamingwit sa dagat. Alas dos e mediya ng hapon ay umalis na kami ng bahay. Dumaan muna kami sa fish market para bumili ng hipon na pang paing. At nagpunta kami sa katabing tindahan para bumili ng Sabiki.
Ang sabiki ay 6 na mga sima na may konting makikintab feathers at plastic. Maganda daw itong gamitin para sa panghuli ng lapis na isda. Yan may nadagdagan na naman ako sa kaalaman pagdating sa paghuli ng isda.
Marami ang namimingwit along the Khobar Corniche. Ito ang hobby ni Richard kaya minsan ay sumasama ako sa kanya. Hindi pa ako marunong mag fishing. Ako ang nagbabalat ng hipon at taga tanggal ng isda sa sima.
Sa loob ng apat na oras ay halos isang kilo lang na iba't - ibang klase ng isda ang nahuli namin. Pag-uwi namin ay nagpunta sa tindahan si Richard para bumili ng pangsahog, spinach. Samantala ako naman ay nauna na sa bahay para linisin ang isda at hiwain ang mga luya, sibuyas at kamatis.
Ang sarap talaga ng mga sariwang sinabawang isda.
Words of Wisdom
"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."Matthew 4:19
Dumating ang kaibigan ko si Pareng Tonio and his family noong Saturday morning. Sinundo nila ako doon sa overpass sa may Al Khobar Telemoney. Dumaretso na kami sa may Corniche(Bay Walk) Para mag breakfast.
Breakfast sa Corniche
Pagkatapos ng almusal ay tumulak na kami sa Halfmoon Beach. Ang kagandahan lang doon sa halfmoon beach ay merong mga free cottages, tabing kalsada at mga comfort room. And the disadvantages ay maraming dumadaan na ibang lahi; ang iba ay may pag ka konserbatib at maring makulit din na mga kabataan. Nagpalipas lang kami doon ng init ng araw. Ok ka mag overnight dito kung marami kayo at saaskupin ninyo ang magkakasunod na cottages.
Clean Comfort room
Pagkagat ng hapon ay nagtungo na kami sa K.F.P.U, Dolphin or Filipino beach. Medyo liblib ng konti at may karumihan na rin. Dahil maraming nagpupuntang Pinoy dito during Ramadan or Haj holidays. Hindi lang napapansin ang lokal na pamahalaan ang pagpapaganda dito. Feeling safe ka dito kasi puro Pilipino ang nag kakamping at madalas na umiikot ang mga Coast Guard.
Bago pa kumagat ang dilim ay nagtayo na kami ng amig mga tents at inayos na rin ang aming mga lutuan.
Noong gabing iyon ay kami lang ang nagtayo ng mga tent at nag overnight. Karamihan kasi ay may mga pasok pa, hanggang sunday. Masarap talaga mag kamping lalo na kung kumpleto ang mga kagamitan. Sina pareng Tonio ay parang mga Boys Scout na laging handa. Parang buong bahay ay dala na nila. Meron silang dalang kalan at uling para sa mga ihawin. Bitbit din ni pare ang kanyang portable generator at spotlight.
Namili kami ng isda para sa pangsigang. Bumili na rin kami ng Tilapia,
marinated chicken at hotdog naman para sa aming iihawin.
Kinabukasan ay nag almusal muna kami bago mag ligpit ng mga tent. Nakarga na namin lahat ng mga gamit sa aming sasakyan. Tsaka kami nag swimming muna. Pagkaraan ng 30 minutes ay nagsiahon na rin kami nagpunta uli sa Corniche para magbanlaw.
Syempre hindi makukumpleto ang pagpunta ng mga bakasyonista dito sa Al Khobar kung hindi dadaan sa Jollibee. Para kilatisin ang lasa at langhap sarap ng Jollibee. Bukod sa masarap na pagkain ng Chicken Joy at Jolli Hotdog ay meron paring mga bitbit na pampasalubong.
