About Me

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…

Day 02:

We arrived in Madinah International Airport in time for Fajar prayers before we boarded a bus to Elaf Taiba Hotel in Madinah. Our guide and muttawif in Madinah and Makkah was Ustaz Hassan.

Breakfast was served at M floor and our hotel room was at 12 floor overlooking the Masjid Nabawi. The morning was spent resting in the room. We performed our prayers in the mosque.

Tonight after dinner we went to visit maqam Rasulullah, Saidina Abu Bakar and Saidina Omar to recite the salam. We prayed and recited the doa at the Raudhah led by a young Indonesian ustazah. The visit was brief and there were quite a large crowd at the Raudhah. We completed our ziarah before midnight.
