A Friend in Middle East

My best friend Marlou is working and living in Middle East for 10 years now. He is currently working as the head chef of a hotel for about 4 years already. As part of his physical fitness routine, he is also practicing martial arts after work and aimed to reach the highest level of degree as well. Just recently,we were chatting through some social media sites like Facebook because we haven’t seen each other for quite sometime. We used to hang out during our college days and together we practice taekwondo with some of our best friends during our free hours.

As part of conversation, we reminisce all the funny stuffs we all have been with during college years. He also shared some of the places he has been through during his stay in Middle East. Out of our conversation, I couldn’t imagine how really beautiful Dubai is. There are rumors he mentioned to me about the New Hotel Dubai, which will truly add beauty to Dubai. Wow! It is really my dream to see the place personally. I love to see in person what makes the place so special.

My best friend Marlou is planning to go back home soon and have his own business here in our country. He works hard and saves money for his future plan to have his own family and kids. One thing he told me that catches me to think of, “You should work hard to make your future baby has the brighter and better future in which you desire him/her to have”.

He never misses any news to mention every time we had the chance of conversation. Even about his niece who is currently on the 6th grade now and same as with the other kids in our community who is also been addicted to computer games. Sheryl is one of his favorite nieces, who is soon celebrating her birthday. Marlou is planning to buy her a special gift on her upcoming birthday. One of Sheryl’s favorite game is monkey defense. Just like the other computer games she also enjoys playing it. One thing that is nice about Sheryl, she knows how to set her priorities aside from playing games, she also spend time doing her home works from school.
