Wait for me, Kolumpo!

I can finally take a little breather at work since it’s the exams period and I just need to get through the markings for now. Phewwww. As of now, I just can’t wait for the Vesak Day weekend because I’ll be heading to my favourite Malaysian city, KL ya’ll! It was decision that my friend, D, and I made, one night, in the spur of the moment. We booked our flights to and fro and the hotel that night itself! Hehe. I figured that I most probably won’t be traveling far out of Singapore (and to new countries) until our honeymoon and the short Hong Kong trip this coming November (for work purposes but it doesn’t count since I’ve been to HK). So short trips to Kolumpo will make up for it. Hehehe. I really can’t wait to……sleep in the hotel hahahaha. But here’s the reason why:

PULLMAN KLCC guyssss. Hehe I love Pullman hotels (with my favourite so far being the one we stayed in Makkah). And since the Pullman KLCC opened in mid-2015, they are relatively new. I really hope it’ll live up to it’s name and standard!

Other than that, I’m looking forward to eating at cafes, being the pretentious hipsters that most of us claim not to be. Hehehe.

Wait for me, Kolumpo!

The Haramain: A Spiritual Journey in the Two Holy Lands

Assalamualaikum wrt wb! I hope everyone is doing well. I’m getting excited reading all the 2016 BTBs posting their excitement. It’s your year, girls! All the best! Hehe. Next year will be the 2017 BTBs’ turn, inshaAllah!

Also, do pardon me for my pretty long absence – I’ve been away for a spiritual journey with my family to Madinah and Makkah in December. It’s been a really eye-opening trip and it has been nothing but full of blessings and magic. Now, of course I don’t mean magic in the haram kind of way but in the mysterious, this-feels-so-surreal kind of way. It’s true what they say that you should be careful what you pray for, or what you say for that matter, when you’re at either of the Holy Lands. I have so many stories to share from my trip but time does not permit at the moment. I fell ill towards the end of the trip and have yet to recover but inshaAllah the air zamzam that I’ve been spamming will help!

Let me just share some photos with you girls for now ya?
