The Pink Tarha is the product of the jubilant exclamation points (and tears of joy) of girls high from a shopping spree. Seriously. So what's so extraordinary in stories told by girls who go gaga over fashion and sale seasons? The place where it all happens!
The Pink Tarha is a blog of four Filipinas living and working in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia... arguably one of the most conservative countries in the world. We are making the best of our stay here and we're sharing the nitty gritty details in a fun, funny way. We talk about anything under the sun and when we do, we use copious amount of sun block (the best advice ever!) and face cream because we talk a lot and for a long time. See? It's been over two years of talking now.
What began in January 2009 as this:
|The Beginning, 2009|
|The Quarter-Life Crisis, 2010|
|The Life Begins at 20-Something Something, 2011|
And for 2012, say hello to a new blog design (again):
The blog layout is a little bit on the mature side now: clean, sleek, and less cluttered. We also made the photos huge so we can entice you more, especially with our food and travel photos. Haha. We incorporated the Kingdom Tower and the Faisaliah Tower in our header. Of course, what better way to symbolize Riyadh, right? :)
So okay, we know how you view Saudi Arabia. It's probably the least country you'll ever want to be in (except Iraq maybe because it's illegal for Filipinos to be there) because of the major differences in culture, tradition, and religion. We leave you with your opinions. But give it - and us - the benefit of the doubt. At least read our perspective. We'll make you laugh, promise! It's not all that bad. See the silver lining (even if clouds rarely appear on the desert sky).
If you decide to journey with us, then we want you to remember the following: For those who are already in Saudi Arabia, "If you don't like how things are going, then change them. If you can't change them, change the way you think about them." For those who are going to Saudi Arabia, "One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things." For everyone, "Do something NEW or something that scares you every day!"
So whaddya say, join us in this journey! We'll bring the sodas, the chips, and the sense of humor. :)
