    Oh I just love the road driving through Dubai! I think it's my favorite here. And the fish, wow! I am so glad you got to make it to hajj. You sound at peace and much better off now than a few months ago sweetie.

    Thanks for the comments.
    Nevin: thanks fr dropping by my blog n I'm sure that Inshallah, you can make ur blog even better than mine!

    Habayeb: Its true that some ppl don't like pictures being taken in the haram, but its not an enforced rule and most of the ppl take pictures in the open. I took pictures in the open myself. Inshallah u'll get to go fr hajj/umrah very soon. :)

    Ammena: LOL ya, i was gonna leave em but then i remembered all those weirdo stalker fetish ppl n i decided against it.

    Lisa: Appreciate the comment Sis, Alhamdulillah i'm really happy i managed to make it, altho it wasn't the big hajj, it was a smaller hajj, also called Umrah. Inshallah i'll be going down fr the main hajj this year! I do feel like I've been cleansed internally... I was havin a lot of issues b4 that've been sorted out now, alhamdulillah, so ya, I am at peace :D
