Jalan-Jalan Raya Lagi


3rd day of Syawal


We decided to take the children beraya at the Outlet Mall, just did window shopping and took them to the Chuke E Cheese, a family entertainment arcade. Pity the elder girls as during Ramadhan terperuk kat rumah. Besides babah wanted to buy souvenir for Uncle Ajim who is leaving Dubai for Finland for a better future. Babah bought some sweat shirt and a working shirt at the Masimmo Dutti.

Malam we had BBQ at AR to bid farewell to Ajim. Agenda; bakar-bakar, makan-makan, brok-brek, brok-brek, and plan for the following Jalan-Jalan Raya lagi.



4th day of Syawal




waiting session at the Dubai Outlet Mall

mommies waiting too



The plan was to wait at the Outlet Mall and then we would altogether convoy to the destination. This is our first time joining the seniors and friends in Dubai to Syawal Annual trip to Al Ain. Finally by 9.15am, 11 vehicles with about 45 adults plus children convoyed bumper to bumper, to the first destination, to our Singaporean friend's villa ; Dr. Ahmad Jaafar and wife Kak Fazidah. We were pleasantly welcomed though we came early before expectation. Patutnya lepas Friday prayer, ni pukul 10.30 dah sampai. Chaotic jugaklah guests arrived earlier in a big group. hehehe.


The mansions


After Friday prayer we were invited to join some Malaysians Muslims (ex-airforces) for small Raya gathering who work for the UAE Airforce. They lived in a huge mansion in Al Surooj Al Ain. The house has 10 BIG rooms, 2 BIG halls on the floor level (very big I mean), and a very BIG Family Hall on the first floor, big bathrooms, everything is BIG. Quite funny coz everyone is stunned with the size and price (rental ); maybe because we are now so used to cozy, mediocre affordable size of houses/apartments in Dubai.

Bersama-sama Abang2 Ex-Airforcers beraya di Perantauan


Look at that yellow and blue flag!! Aha! bendera Peglieh (Perlis), Babah really felt at home meeting some of orang kampung. Many were orang utagha and to be specific org Perlis. Many missed anak cucu actually and they felt happy cum excited having us there - terubat rindu. The children dapat duit raya lagi!


Nak jadik cerita masa nak balik 3 children missing in actions, 2 Anak Nor Fadzil dan sorang anak Imran. Ahaks. Everyone helped us to find them (terjerit-jerit carik diorang), ghupe-ghupenyer kat gym tingkat atas naik gerek (beskal) and threadmills. Punyelah besar rumah, budak-budak boleh hilang!!!


quote unquote an email from Abg Rasid :

Habis di Al Surooj, ingat balik terus but we went to another house, ruman Wan Nasrun, pekena laksa dan badan dah penat sebenarnye. Later we ols singgah solat Maghrib at the rest area and then proceed to Haza n Ziela's open house in Escala Al-Attar, Gold Souq. Memang ramai but again space is not the constraints. We had soto ayam, nasi impit, etc etc. The day end at 10.30 gak, rasa penat sangat... the children apa lagi but they were so energetic, mana depa dapat energy pun tak taulah. That nite wehad a deep slumber.

kita makan lagi

brok-brek, brok-brek


To all tuanpuan rumah, Thank u for having us and thank u for the food. Semoga murah rezeki, Ameen.

Nor,
Bukan anak-anak kita ke Nor??hehehe, cancel nak sewa umah besar lepas nih, takut Ilham ngan Syahmi asyik hilang jer. Besar gilerrr.

Wiz,
Memang blh jadik baliraya, Infact if buat kenduri kawin tak payah sewa tent, It could accomodate all the guests. True Wiz, we do felt that warmth relationship. It bonds us together.

PP,
Takdak rezeki ... n badan tak sihat pun. Next Eidul Adha kita buat kenduri korban kat sana yek. So my UAE pro kena masukkan dlm agendalah! hehehe

AGRB
Ooo, tu Riri bakal Besan I (gurau jer, he has 4 terunas n I anak daras). Not biologically related, but SeIslam n bukan seNegara.

Happy in calmness??? hehe actually kitorang yg paling kepochee.


Orang Al Attar Escala,
Space is never a constraint, we always welcome people with our BIG heart not BIG house kan ? ... Alhamdulillah
