This is a continuation from my previous blog: Flashback: Time to leave home ….
My flight from Dubai – Jeddah was delayed by more than 2 hours (if I’m not mistaken) due to some technical issues. I was too tired to roam around Dubai Airport. On hindsight, I should have done that, given the variety of stores and food restaurants that are available. All I did was to find a nice spot to land my butt and catch some sleep.
(One of them is NOT me)
The flight took off from Dubai late in the evening, around 6pm or so. Reached Jeddah airport some 3 hours later (sometime past 9pm). Went past immigration and baggage check. Met up with the Uni Meet and Greet Team. The rep gave me a temp ID and they brought me over to my Jeddah ‘residence’ – Crowne Plaza. This was my place of stay for a few weeks before I moved into my permanent home in the University Town.
Loved the food in Crowne Plaza. They really served excellent dishes and were generous in their servings. Too generous even; I had to request for them to reduce the servings so as not to waste the food. Like to thank the University for providing me a great accommodation even though it was a temporary one.
This was the start of my adventure in the Kingdom. Stay tune for more updates 🙂
