"If you wait for perfect condition to sieze an opportunity, you will be waiting till the day you die" - Mark Batterson

Throwback Story Time 21 (2011):
Saudi Arabia, my 2nd OFW experience that lasted only for 40 days. The reason was my work visa was approved on other country when I was still in KSA (but it started to process before I arrived). Also, the job offer was an engineering position.
