This is a shame what u did with that “bra”. It’s not acceptable in Saudi Arabia. Maybe People, who arranged this, didn’t tell you about the rules in Saudi. When u are in different country than yours u have to respect the culture of that country. Shameful.— construction manager (@Abo_fahad1110) November 17, 2019
