I am married to my loving husband for more than 38 years now. I am a mother to 3 beautiful children, until 11 years ago when I lost my youngest son. Since then my life is forever altered but yet unbroken....

My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

2015 Our 12th Umrah Trip...

"Dear Allah... thanks for this beautiful life and forgive me if sometimes it seems as if I don't love it enough..."

(Our luggage for the 12-day trip)

Date: 15 - 27 April 2015
Travel Agent: Poto Travels

It is less than two weeks since our Kembara Borneo Biking trip. We have rested well and it's time for our spiritual journey to the holy lands.

We had initially book our Umrah/Oman trip with Andalusia Travels but to our disappointment the trip was cancelled last minute. We made a few calls to other travel agents and at last decided to join Poto Travels as they have a direct Umrah trip on the same scheduled dates.

We joined a group of 25 jemaah and performed our Umrah and ziarah rituals in the holy lands. The weather was hot and dry. At times it was unbearably hot combined with haze and sand storm. Both of us were down with flue and coughs throughout our stay but we managed to performed our Umrah almost daily and never missed to have our prayers in the mosque.
