Places I Want To Visit In Life

I'm not a travel freak and I travel less, but somehow I like to visit great places with my family. Just visiting the greenery in our neighborhood is fine for me. In special occasions we travel to tourism objects to let our sons know the world. We traveled to Pasir Putih Beach in Trenggalek last January that's about 4 hours from home.

There are some places I want to visit in life. Some special places. I really hope I will be able to travel there. Well, let's see where I wish to go.

MAKKAH AND MADINAH
For sure, these are the first special places I want to visit. Not only because Makkah is a place where every muslim who is physically and financially ready must visit for a hajj pilgrimage, but it's more than that. There's a certain feeling that drives me to go there one day. Yes, one day insha Allah.

As Madinah is the place where Islam grew for the first time and spread out to the world. Madinah is a very historical city, from religious to political matters. It's also the place where Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him lived and being buried.

ARCTIC CIRCLE
Arctic Circle is a wide area lies on some 66° 34' North. It's the southern part of North Pole. Svalbard in Norway could be the place I want to visit in life.

What's so interesting about this place? I want to witness the midnight sun during summer especially from May to July when the sun never sets! 24 hours of sunny sky! I really want to know how it feels to have a bright sky night and watch the 00:00 a.m. with the sun still in the sky.

SPACE
What? Space? Yes, outer space. I dreamt of being an astronaut when I was little.

I know it's dark, silence, cold and weightless. I know it's almost impossible for me to be up there. But there's nothing to lose to dream, right?

Well, those are places I want to visit in life from the most possible ones to the most impossible ones.
What about you? Where are your dream places you want to visit in your life?

Teaching Kids About Hajj, Not Only Fun But Also Surprising!

Early in this September, my sons, Mr. Inventor and The Professor went on a hajj teaching ritual class. It is an annual class conducted by the regional teaching department. There were more than one thousand students from15 different elementary schools. It took place at the local square.

This year is special for us because male students had to wear ihram, a clothing of male hajj pilgrims. I was imagining it would be great as kids would learn almost the real hajj would like. The last year class didn't obligate male students to wear ihram, just white clothing.

Surprisingly, Mr. Inventor refused to attend the class.

"I will not go," he said.

"Why not?" I asked.

"I just don't want to."

Okay...it became a problem for me. I needed to find out what caused him not to. Mr. Inventor is 9-year-old now, so I think it is common for such a boy to feel uncomfortable about something new. Perhaps he wanted to look good with the ihram.

I persuaded him to go. I told …

My Siblings And I

It's the three of us. Yes, we are siblings. I'm the middle child. I have an elder sister and a younger brother. Both of them live close to our mom in Jogja. My Sister
It's so funny to remember our childhood. We were, actually, not good siblings. I seemed to always had arguments and fights with my sister. I didn't like her and I think that she didn't like me either. It's understandable as she's only 2 years older than me. My sister and I shared the same room for years. We had a big table in our room for us to study. It was the only thing, I guess, that we agreed to share. The rest were things that we called 'mine' and 'yours'. The next funny thing is I missed my sister once after she left home for college. She had to stay in Solo for her bachelor degree. She returned home once a month or so and that made me felt lonely. Then I started to miss her. And the feeling got bigger when she got married. My sister is a tough person. She lives with…

Beautiful Hijabs From Hidden Pearls [A Review]

Last December I went home to Jogja for a holiday with my family. It was an end-of-semester holiday actually and I spent most of the days with my kids while my husband came later. We stayed at my mom's house which used to be the place I live through my younger years. Coming home and enjoy the atmosphere of romanticism of the past is always wonderful. I took my sons to places I'd like them to see so that they can learn something new. And they would be able to get to know their mom better. I showed them my high school, the local library I used to go, even my elementary school reports.
