This was my first time celebrating Eid abroad (Madinah/ Saudi Arabia), and it was strange...really great to see the entire city celebrate, have fun, families going out until early in the morning (until 3am) and so much love in the air. Yet it felt a little bit lonely, since it was all new and we barely knew anyone there.
Normally we spent the 1st day of Eid having a huge lunch with the entire family and relatives. All coming over to our place. This time, it was just my parents, sister, brother and I, in a new place, knowing no one.
We still managed to have fun at the end by going out and seeing wonderful places and having a lovely dinner and delicious ice cream (Mövenpick Swiss Premium! Yuuuuummmm!)
I've gone through quite few job titles...including 'blogger' which I no longer am. Being raised and having lived in five different countries/cities (12 years in London, 9 years in Zürich/Switzerland, 5 years in Al Hudaydah/Yemen, 1 year in Nairobi/ Kenya and 2 years in Mogadishu/ Somalia) has allowed me to naturally intertwine respectively unique cultures to form my own distinctive creative identity. My strengths include excellent creativity and analytical skills, specializing in luxury fashion, PR, content creation, marketing communications and publishing.
