One of the best, if not the BEST, blogs here in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It deals with what women want to do here and makes us guys understand what women really want.

It is always a joy to read Pink Tarha's blogs.I am really amazed how TPTL describes and sees the beauty and positive aspects of the country (KSA) which is my current and second home - from restaurant reviews and best vacation getaways, to community service (how to's)and some simple everyday things that made you smile. And of course, anyone loves TPTL's Sale Alerts! Note: This comment is done during work/office hours. ^_^

I've come across the The Pink Tarha blog only a year ago when I was google-searching about ways of paying Philhealth, Pag-ibig, and SSS here in Riyadh. They really do write informative articles that are such a great help to all Filipinos living and working in Saudi Arabia. Their insightful observations about Riyadh opened my eyes to its beauty and they never cease to amaze me. They made people see that Riyadh, just like some cities in the other side of the world, can be a hell of a lot of fun! Since then, whenever I need to search the net for something about KSA, I would go to their site right away, certain, there would be an answer. Kudos to these girls! I'm such a fan, I've even told my friends to visit their site, like their page in facebook and follow them in instagram. Well, i hope you do, too.

Being new in Riyadh, i wandered so many websites for tips but none really sufficed my clueless mind, not until i specifically typed in the search bar: "tips for pinay housewife going to Riyadh", and The Pink Tarha blogsite was one of the many search results. I was hooked right there and there not knowing (or you might say, panicking) on what to read first. I may say these bloggers helped me so much in so many things that my husband's left eyebrowse raise into, can i say envy?, with so much infos i'm feeding him! He whos has been working here haven't heard of this and that when suddenly, me, left in the house, knew so much..hahaha.I'm not being biased when I say The Pink Tarha bloggers should definitely win this award because they truly most deserving. They blog for the fun and passion of it without asking for any in return...just friendship. Viva Pink Tarha!

Living in Saudi Arabia was once such a dreadful thought, until The Pink Tarha ladies decided to share the good things about it. The blog has such great impact, that our fellow Filipinos who usually have second thoughts on working in this country now become very excited just from the thought of it. Kudos and more power to these amazing women!

"Yes, I really grew up in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia," is what I would say, almost to reassure truth to an earlier statement, whenever I would introduce myself to new people. Then I would recommend the Pink Tarha Blog, it's the best way to allude many of their misconceptions about the place. Getting to see updates on the place I used to call home is definitely another perk. I even get excited to see announcements on mall sales, even when the demographics are clearly an impossibility! Keep up the great job, girls!

Of course the Award belongs to Pink Tarha! These innovative ladies knew exactly what was missing in KSA and just did it with fun, creativity and hope for other women (I am one of them). They also started coffee morning series which I can find very useful, informative and wonderful opportunity for other ladies to learn and network. Thank you Pink Tarha, hopefully the award is yours :)

Totally amazed to know there are 4 smart and brave ladies behind this informative blog. Riyadh seems scary for others but hey, it's not what you think it is... Expats also have many things to enjoy there! - enjoying life cheaper than other countries especially when it comes to shopping! ;) Ladies love that! ;)

Having lived in Riyadh as a kid (during the Gulf War!) I have the same view of how everything's like. But thanks to Pink Tarha blog, I can see how modernized and how some places have improved compared to the 90s! Sometimes, I even consider visiting KSA again because of how well these girls have shown the side of KSA I probably never got to see before :)

We are in a region where lifestyle is a mandate. TPT, on the other hand provides "Riyadhzens" alternatives to this seemingly closed culture we dwell in. Their blog is like a palette endowing colors to a black canvass and hightlights the spectacular. They share-in more and more reasons that there's definitely something worth staying in Riyadh.

Michelle
14:27 PM December 04, 2012

I am very thankful that we have TPT Ladies here in Riyadh. They make the lives of expat here in Riyadh so easy...their blogs help us in understanding the culture and way of life here in Saudi Arabia...So ladies keep up the good work!!!

Having heard of personal stories, impressions from the news/reports and my small knowledge of Riyadh, I dreaded the day I had to follow my husband here aside from having to leave my family, career and home in the Philippines. The hardest to deal with was the feeling of being stripped off of my freedom -- to "roam", drive and be an independent woman as I have been used to. The Pink Tarha gave me hope that despite the different culture, strict laws and restrictions, I can live a normal (enough) life and enjoy what Riyadh has to offer. No, I cannot drive here still but I can "roam" (through the TPT site if not being able to physically do) and be independent the most I can be. Thank you TPTL! Thanks for being my lifeline! =D
