Eric Macatangay posted this interesting video on his YouTube channel. Entitled “Buhay Jeddah”, the short film is a first-hand account of a Pinoy who is setting foot in Saudi Arabia for the first time.
Jeddah is Saudi’s second largest city next to Riyadh, the capital.
It is not often that we get to see footage of that country – or the Middle East, for that matter – which for years has been hosting millions of Filipino workers, including Eric who is currently working at the Jeddah airport.
Tidbit: Aside from Eric, the following peps have worked in the Middle East: Eddie Roberto (still in Qatar), Keith dela Cruz, Larry Ramos, Ronnie Gorgonio, Buddy Ignacio, Roger del Prado and Didi Espiritu.
Consider this video as Eric’s contribution to our section Travelogue. We will supply the name of the filmmaker as soon as we get it from Eric.
