change

When maam is going for vacation Lilibeth is showing me how to read the news on internet. When I am getting little time now I am reading this. It is little bit change for me but I like it. Because it is like reading newspaper but I get news from some other country also. 

Anyway I am reading that in Saudi there is a new rule. That if any man is change hair style to any funny hair style then he can be arrested. Really. I am thinking that if these boys want to do funny hair then they already have punishment. That they are looking funny and everyone will laugh. That is the punishment. No need for more punishment.

I am laughing little bit at this news because it is so silly. but I also feel sad he is not allow to change hair style how he is wanting. Then I am thinking that at least he is allow to show his hair. If he was woman he would have to cover his hair. Even in Dubai the local girl have to do hijab and cover hair but it is not so strict like in Saudi. In Saudi everyone even if you are not local is having to cover hair and full body.

Like that Saudi girl in the olympics. She is doing judo. She is having to wear a swim cap to cover her hair because it is not allow to show hair. And it is not allow in judo in olympic to wear hijab. It is first time she is doing judo in big competition like this. Other wise she is only fighting with her brother. And brother is always winning. This girl is so important because she is first Saudi girl to go in olympics.

She is staying only one minute or something in the fight. She is losing fight just like she is losing fight with her brother at home. She is not winning any medal but everyone is clapping when she is losing. Why? Because she is winning the biggest fight of all. The fight for change. I hope many more girl from Saudi is able to take part in olympics next time.

is this a joke?

To the person commenting above me. Is what a joke? You find this funny? This situation of house maids and their madams exists in Dubai and all over the Middle East (and south east Asia). Why would you say it is a joke?

Yes the author is presenting it in a funny way (I think to make it interesting to the reader) but in no way is the situation funny.

Who cares if this is real or not, it's lovely and shows the situation of many housemaids in the Middle East.
