Dear Daddy Ed, Mommy Luds, Jun, Ivan, Erick & Jayvee, Kuya Pope, Randy & Lani, Yoi & Ole,
I hope you all had an easy ride home.
Now that I’m back here in Riyadh, I can only indulge myself in recalling my very enjoyable and unforgettable stay in Simara. Short as it was, you’ve made my vacation distinctly fulfilling. I can still smell the fresh sea breeze, recall the warmth welcoming smiles of the many folks whom I had the honor of being introduced to, and taste the sumptuous food and delicacies of the island. I’m sure these happy memories will linger for a longer while as I really had a great time. For this, I’m most grateful to all of you – please accept my humble thanks, hoping that I’ll be able to reciprocate all your kindness in some ways.
