Engagement 7th May 2016 (Majlis Pertunangan di rumah)

Saturday, 7th of May 2016

We had a small gathering of family and friends for my engagement recently.

My dad worked really hard to built this simple yet beautiful pelamin. 
He did everything from scratch. 
He first built the big white wooden frame for the white background drapes. 
He then built the hipster bench from pine wood, later on he made the 2 side tables with hidden lamps and he worked on the overall lighting for the whole pelamin.

And the DIY did not stop there. 

I DIY my hantaran decorations myself. 
Seven trays with off-white roses and baby breath.

And the DIY continues..
I started sewing my engagement dress the night before the engagement itself.
The sewing part was fast and smooth
but 
when it comes to placing the beads, it was a trial-n-error.

And on the engagement day, early in the morning, I applied the make-up myself. 
That was abreeze. 


So with a DIY pelamin by my dad,
7 DIY hantaran tray decorations, a DIY dress and a DIY makeup by yours truly,
and our house 'as is',
my engagement took place.

















Thanks to my
DAD, MOM, BROTHERS, AUNTIES, UNCLES, COUSINS and FRIENDS
for being there for me and most importantly,
 for making this day 
as beautiful and cheerful as it could be.

And  thank you to my fiancee and his family too. 



Thanks to my dad ( in dark brown baju melayu) 
for the rustic yet modern pelamin.
PRICELESS!!

Our last day for our 12 day Umrah journey and our final day in Mekah.
Before performing our Tawaf Wida or Tawaf Selamat Tinggal, we took one long last look at the magnificient Ka'bah once again.



I will really miss this place. 
So crowded and yet so calming and peaceful.
A rare combination!

Our view today!




umrah dan ziarah yang bermakna



Though packed most of the time, 
there is always room for everyone.



Good Bye. 
May Allah grant us with a Mabrur Umrah and
the opportunity to visit this amazing place again..soon.


We performed our Tawaf Wida (Tawaf Selamat Tinggal) after which no photos and other activities are allowed, we need to leave as soon as possible.
So we check-out of the hotel and boarded the bus to Jeddah.

While we were in Jeddah airport, I received a call from my boss asking me if I could start working tomorrow morning since everything had piled-up at the office and I obediently said YES!

We arrived home at 5 o'clock in the morning the following day and a few hours later, I was already at work, staring at the computer at the office!
The usual life continues...but Ka'abah, Madinah and Mekah shall never be forgotten.
Our Umrah journey will always linger.


P/s I can still see the twirling motion of people at the Ka'abah, I can still hear the people calling us 'Hajjah' and 'Haji' while we were there,
the clapping sound and the shouting of "ibu! ibu!" of the women guards in Madinah,
 the tudung terbang in Madinah and all.

And the doves, lovely doves..everywhere..will surely miss all of these!





They called me "Hajjah Fatin" in Madinah and Mekah :P
I am the eldest child and the only daughter of The Hilmis



They called him "Haji Aiman" in Madinah and Mekah :P
The second child and the eldest son of The Hilmis.


They called him "Haji Imran" in Madinah and Mekah :P
The third child of The Hilmis.

They called him "Haji Amir" in Madinah and Mekah :P

Hopefully,
Insyaa Allah,
with all these doas,
we will be invited to perform our HAJI soon.

Our forth and last Umrah today. 
Our Miqat is at Hudaibiyyah.

After subuh prayers at Masjidil Haram and breakfast, as usual we boarded the bus.
Our first destination for ziarah was the Museum of Two Holy Mosques.

The original Zam Zam well.



Later on, we headed to Hudaibiyyah for our Miqat. 
We snapped a few photos in front of what was left of Hudaibiyyah mosque before getting into ihram attire.



The ruins of Hudaibiyyah Mosque.


We had our prayers at a small mosque structure situated next to the ruins and once we recite our niat for Umrah, our Ihram started.

We were back in Masjidil Haram again and completed our fourth  and final Umrah.


umrah 2016

Never get tired of this place.
There was always an amazing feeling when I was there.


 Today was a long day.
We had ziarah in the morning, performed Umrah during noon.

And after Isyak at Masjidil Haram, we joined the group to climb Jabal thur. This is where Gua Hirak is located. The place where our Prophet (s.a.w) received his first revelation. 

After alighting from the bus, we had to take a van towards the foot of Jabal Thur. It was a roller coaster ride, very bumpy and quite a scare. The trails heading to the top of Jabal Thur were extremely steep. Some people had to give-up halfway. I was lucky to have my strong brothers with me. Aiman carried my bag and both of them made sure I reached the top safely.

It was amazing how my dad made it since he is already 51 years old.
I guess his determination to witness Gua Hirak himself kept him going all the way.

My mom could not join us since she had a bad ankle.
And my little brother accompanied her at the hotel. 


It was an emotional journey for some of the climbers.
 I heard the sound of ladies weeping as they climbed. One Arab lady even screamed because she was too tired.  Just imagine how determined Siti Khadijah was, 
the wife of our Prophet (s.a.w), 
who climbed Jabal Thur everyday to send him food.

Our view of Mekah from Jabal Thur. 
We can see the clock tower and the whole city from up here.
Amazing view. 
Undescribeable.

After subuh at Masjidil Haram, we decided to explore Mekah a little bit. 
After all, we only have today and tomorrow to spend in Mekah

We arrived back at the hotel and prepared ourselves to head to Masjidil Haram for Zohor.

And when we got back at the hotel again, our uncle who is working in Mekah stopped by to visit us and much to our surprise, he brought along the famous Al-Baik Fried Chicken and burger.

This fried chicken is definitely delicious. It even taste better than KFC!
Finger Licking Good.


It was time for Magrib and we made our way to Masjidil Haram again.

Time flies very fast here since we headed to the mosque 2 hours before every azan, went back to the hotel for our meal and by the time we finished our meal, it was the time to walk back to the mosque.

And magically, you'll never feel tired but rather, always excited to head back to the mosque again and again and again.

My mom and dad , watching the Ka'abah and the surrounding from this Mataf Bridge after completing Tawaf Sunat. 

This is our favorite spot. Tengok ka'abah pun dapat pahala.

The young couple sitting next to my mum were helping each other in memorising/reciting the quran while looking at the Ka'abah.



As midnight approached, the area around the ka'abah was less crowded.
