Weekends are a very special day for many citizens in Riyadh, starting in the morning most of them are normally spending leisure time with their family at restaurants. In every Saturday morning of these past few months, taking breakfast and spending family bonding time is now more memorable and worthy because of the newly opened iHop restaurant here in Riyadh.

iHop is a Long-standing chain serving a wide variety of pancakes & other American breakfast & diner fare. about iHop "Since 1958, IHOP® has been the place where people connect over breakfast, enjoy study breaks, grab a bite before or after sporting events, and so much more. And no matter what menu items they order, there’s one ingredient that’s always constant — a smile. We’ve seen millions of smiles over the years in our restaurants, and now shared in photos across our social properties. In fact, smiles are so much a part of our culture that we changed our logo to include one.

This is just one of the many fun and exciting changes you can expect from IHOP®. Because we know the shortest distance between two people is a smile."

So as my food experience at iHop, we can say that having breakfast are proven good from ambiance to service and to the food. Price is affordable and lot's of variety to choose for at menu. Highly suggestible that you must try are Waffles, Omelets, Pan Cakes, and Salad.

Dirab - Hair Road, MTB Trail

Solo riding in mountain biking is kinda tough challenge here in Saudi Arabia because you don't know the place exactly when it comes to security while biking but for me since I don't wanna miss the weekend without a ride again so I have decided to take a solo ride again at the place where my working area is near.

Dirab - Hair road is a moderate level MTB trail which has 21 km distance and a 35-40km away from outside the city of Riyadh. This location is a good place to explore for an explorer enthusiast because of promising views from the top of the mountain and in along the way of the trail.

As my experience on this trail was so challenging because my knee strength was tested here and I really enjoyed a lot not just by biking but appreciating the beauty of Riyadh which was keeping me to get more excitement on my others incoming rides. I feel like an explorer and blessed every time I got the opportunity to amaze with God, for his beautiful creation.
