stopped at a speeding check point,
rolled down my window,
the officer ” you were speeding, your Iqama please and cars paper?”
with a smile I hand him my Saudi ID,
the officer blushing and feeling akward ” I’m sorry about that, I thought….”
“don’t worry, no harm was done” I said
The officer after reading my Family name ” your Shammari?”
I said “yes, I am”
The officer pointing at his own name tag ” wa alna’am, I’m Shammari too”
I said” good for you, I guess!”
he hand me my ID back and told me to go on my way, and I did.
then I thought what was that about me being speeding 😉
happens to me a lot, lucky me I guess ^.^
I’m considered 100% Saudi, really???
My Father is Saudi, his father is a Saudi, his fathers’ father was Saudi, man our tribe was here before there was a Saudi Arabia ^.^
That been said, I’m not really a Saudi in the eyes of my peers.
I don’t look like one ^.^ I sure don’t act like one,
makes me wonder what a Saudi look like O.o
Why I don’t look like a Saudi????
read on you might get a hint.
My Mother is Saudi, she was born a Saudi,
but her Father’s Father came from Iran when he was 9 years old,
and her Mother is from Eastern Turkmanstan, thats used to be a country south/west of china I think.
my mother side of the family look very much Asians ^.^ I got some of it in my blood ^.^
but as my mother side of the family still attached to the heritage they brought.
and MAN, do I love the food :p
My Mother is divorced and I live with her, and my two young brothers, Tariq Married, and Saad.
And YES my younger brother is married and I’m not. and please don’t go there “A blog on the way, WHY!” ^.^
My Mothers two sisters one older and one youngest are married to Egyptian,
her brother younger then my mom is Married to an American,
My mom Married a Saudi “DUH”,
so to sum it all we are one wild Family ^.^
as it all interesting mix I’m grateful ^.^
being IN THE MIX is good ^.^ it’s not all bad 😉
at least I didn’t get a speeding ticket 🙂
ahhhh, that been said!
