Hye! I'm back from my spiritual journey to Eqypt and Saudi Arabia. It was a wonderful, wonderful experience, my first Umrah. Despite the worry of leaving my girls for 2 weeks, I still love the enriching experience, the spiritual revival and the chance to get a closer look at historic places that growing up I could only listen to the stories. The most rewarding journey ever, no wonder our religion highly encourage us to travel, Subhanallah...
So I share here a few pics from my journey before we go back to my sewing posts. Honestly I'm still revving up my engine sewing wise lol...
We were in Cairo, Egypt for 4 days, with a day trip to coastal city Alexandria. The lifestyle in Egypt is somehow similar to Malaysia. I could totally live in Alexandria, what a beautiful city by the Mediterranean Sea! It was awesome of course visiting the Pyramids but the weather was scorching hot and we had to wear masks to block the dusty desert wind. Then we move to Saudi Arabia for the rest of the journey. I don't have many photos at Madinah and Makkah mainly because camera is prohibited in Masjidil Haram. I have some in my mobile phone though :)
I leave you with the pics till next post. Enjoy! :)
Mom, dad and grandma.
On the River Nile
The street market by the Mediterranean Sea and a citadel.
Sayyidina Hussein Mosque
The Prophet's Mosque, Masjidil Nabawi, I cried buckets here thinking of the struggle of our beloved Prophet peace be upon him.
My dad in profile, at the Red Sea. He looks so happy :)
I love my dad...Isn't he handsome? :D
And this is ME! Hahaha...I caught you by surprise right?
I decided to post a picture of me here so that if by chance you meet me on the street you'd recognize me. Will that ever happen? Well who knows! Fyi, this is the only decent picture of me the whole trip, I am never photogenic LOL
Thanks for reading friends, have a wonderful, happy weekend!
