  • Fighting Nostalgia

    It’s been more than a week now since the last time I blogged. I was interrupted by some social events in the workplace and by some activities at home. I also noticed that I easily get tired lately that I felt the need breath out and rest so I was asleep most of the time. And during my spare time, I can’t help but to watch television these past few days, and it seems to be that it is becoming a part of my routine before I get to bed or after coming from work. That could be a sign of homesickness, a separation anxiety that anyone who’s away from home has to deal with.Image Source: http://thepleat.com/

  • Overwhelming Response to BlogCritics

    From Technorati, only then I came across with Blogcritics which from my research, is an online magazine which offers writing reviews in all aspects covering all the contemporary culture and society with more than 3600 registered writers. Image Source: http://www.ryjennings.com

  • Friendster Demolition or Reinvention?

    The first time Friendster was introduced was the actual hallmark or the beginning of the interactive social media connection and "Friendster" being the pioneer was considered as the original and even the "father" of all social networks. Image Source: http://atothepandm.files.wordpress.com

  • Technorati: verifying the Claim Token

    In order to optimize my blog, I need Technorati to have my blog become more visible in search engine. Unlike here in Blogger.com, in Wordpress.com, blogs can be automatically visible from search engines by adjusting the setting without making too much effort to increase traffic, but since I migrated here, I had to register and claim authorization on my blog.

  • World Press Freedom Day

    What could have been with a world without freedom to express? It could have been a diversity of prisoners in detentions with no chance to claim the rights to be heard. It could have been a place where there is no room to break the silence and the use of mouth to speak is not possible in which the chain and the mode of communication seems to be weak and built without advocacy.

When "DAY OF RAGE" Failed to Stage!

Posted by Ma. Theresa Macabuag On 4:12 AM No comments


Photo was taken in front of Coral Hotel near the Mosque and Al-Rajhi Bank opposite of Al-Jazeera Mall in Sulaimanya, Riyadh City



No doubt that this Day of Rage won’t go on stage here in Riyadh City, while others were marching on protests from the other sides of the Middle East. The main city of Saudi Arabia seemed to back off and loosened up when security forces went on tight clogging some highways causing severe traffic on their strict check points. 

When I tried to google on what’s new about the planned “Day of Rage,” I have read that the King have released 10, 000 armed forces in defense against those who are planning for revolt in any form. The rules and orders declared by King  Abdullah seemed to be working out and were strictly being followed and implemented in the kingdom and Saudi nationals wholly feared the officers guarding the community when the king has declared to stop any form of movements against the government at any cause.

Meanwhile, while the planned revolt seemed to fail in Riyadh, hundreds of people bravely pushed through in some province like Al-Qatif consisting mostly of Shi'ites to outcry their yearning for a change in the government system. Shi'ites, I learned from a friend that they are another sect of Muslims perceiving Quran’s teaching in another way experiencing mostly of discrimination against Sunni comprising the majority of Muslims. On the other hand, Arabs have witnessed more protests across the Middle East like Kuwait, Yemen, Libya, Iraq and in some parts of Bahrain.  (Check this out at Aljazeera.net)

Then later from the news, the king has declared salary increased for the Saudi Nationals to prevent them further from going rage and the Absolute Monarchy government seemed to have a great advantage when country's peace and orderliness is being maintained, though, lots of disadvantages can as well be enumerated.

Here are the photos of some streets in Sulaimanya near Olaya in Riyadh City which I have taken from the time of scheduled revolution after Salah on March 11.
