pengalaman mengerjakan umrah (sneak peek)

>> April 17, 2009

26/3 - 7/4 yg lepas, alhamdulillah aku berkesempatan mengerjakan umrah bersama mak dgn makcikku under andalusia travel. truly a very fine experience, despite minor hiccups here and there. here's a few interesting pics, and if i have the time i'll continue about the journey and whatnot.

flight attendants of gulf air, bahrain's airlines. tutup atas, bukak bawah, heheh. itu pun bila dlm kapal terbang yg atas pun dah x tertutup dah. reminds me of a certain makcik yg adik aku n aku nampak kat manetah, pakai tudung tapi pakai spaghetti strap. the world is coming to an end...

in front of masjid an-nabawi, madinah. seriously besar masjid ni. being the ignorant me, i had no idea how the masjid looked as a whole. not until we went to muzium 2 masjid at mekah, where they have the miniature scale of the masjid.

notice the price of fuel per litre. diesel la tapi, tapi selalunya x byk beza kan dgn petrol. no wonder there's no bus in mekah and madinah (other than tourist bus). i read somewhere that an ordinary IT exec could own a hummer.

bitza. 5 riyal = RM5. i didn't feel out-of-place compared to when i was in japan, partly because most of the sellers there know how to speak bahasa melayu. well, that's probably because they aren't arabs. kebykan dr pakistan, bangladesh, n even myanmar. and of course, partly because we don't look so much different, heh. sume tutup je. terpikir jugak, yg tutup sampai nampak mata je ni tutup sbb itu yg dituntut ke, sbb habuk?

the majestic masjidilharam at night. words cannot express how i felt everytime i was there. despite all the habuk from nearby constructions (even masjidilharam tu pun ada certain parts are under renovation) and the amount of ppl there, you won't feel like you're choking or restless or burdened or any -ve feeling that have been surrounding you all this time. heh, i dont even know if i should describe it as that. just be there yourself.

nazreen pakai baju arab. ee cumil rasa nak tampo2. kitorg belikan jugak kain serban a la yasser arafat, tapi x sempat nak kasi pakai elok2 dah tarik dah. rimas kot.

ok chiow.
