This blog, started way back in 2007 in a small way, has today grown into the most referred one by expatriates working or planning to work in Saudi Arabia. I just noticed that it has crossed 1.3 million visitors, with an average of 2 hits per minute round the clock from all over the world. From the bottom of my heart, dear readers, a very big Thank You.
