Suzy's wedding

One of our nieces, Dk. Suzy's wedding to Ak. Saifullah on the 9th Nov was the highlights for our family this year. I was also an "unofficial" photographer during the wedding...... my apologies to the newly weds though because I've not had the time yet to sort out the photos...... May Allah blessed the two of you and that the marriage will last forever in full harmony....

The not so attractive side of BSB.......

It has been quite a while since I last updated this blog. A lot had been happening family wise but not much to blog about.......

The water village where I was born and grew up in (and a lot of other areas in the water villages in BSB) had turned into something like a slump area lately with the arrival of "outsiders" into the villages, taking over houses from the original occupants who had mostly moved on to land. These pictures below were taken last Monday, 8th Dec, the morning of Eid ul-Adha. This was just less than 1 kilometer west side of the SOAS Mosque......... Not something that we would be proud of to show to arriving tourists........ I hope the Authority will do something about this situation.....
