I must be the first mum ever to go gallivanting across the ocean just a week before her only daughter is about to get married...LOL. But hey, it was Christmas sale in Melbourne and the hubby needed help with his Corelle shopping spree... So there we were in Melbourne on the 26th to the 30th of December 2013 leaving the daughter to manage on her own with the wedding preparation (the solemnization ceremony which was on New Year's day). But I must hand it to her, she had everything planned the way she wanted (with some help from Daddy, financial-wise of course...hmm) and Alhamdulillah everything went smoothly on the day...(I told her she'd make a great Wedding Planner if she decides to quit her job...AND she isn't likely to turn into a Bridezilla if it's someone else's wedding...hehe)
Anyway, the Corelle-shopping and packing for shipping took about 2 days and the rest of the days we were there were spent sight-seeing and fruit-picking...so here are the pictures of the trip:
Soon it was time to go home..we hoped to go on the midnight flight on the 29th but it was already full so we had to spend the night at the airport and catch the next morning's flight...it's OK, we're used to sleeping in airports..LOL
|They didn't forget the Qibla direction...however the prayer room is for all faiths and both genders but Alhamdulillah...Allah makes things easy for us|
Alhamdulillah, we had a great time.. By the way, the hubby had just been again to Melbourne a couple of days ago for another Corelle-shopping trip. I didn't go because I had to attend a Mukhayyam. Maybe I'll write about it next..
