LabbaikAllah!

It's the time of the year again.. when I hear and watch with 'envy' about people going off to Makkah to perform their pilgrimage.. It's not that I haven't been there but it's normal to yearn to go there again and again and again.., maybe not for Hajj but for umrah. Up till now, the chance hasn't presented itself, yet. Nevertheless, Alhamdulillah, we had been given the opportunity to perform the 5th pillar of Islam about 6 years ago. Adik was just 8 then and we left him with our good neighbour, Kak Nab who took care of him for about 40 days... Kaklang was in form 3 and she was staying with a friend, Noraini in Bangi as she went to a school there. Bangah was in form 5 and staying in the hostel at Hira' while Banglong was at UiTM. I'll have to continue some other time but here are some pics from 6 years ago:

The hubby, looking not unlike a Yemeni.. the local shopkeepers used to ask him whether he came from Yemen, haha
