Here’s when the Makkah journey began. We arrived around 1am in the morning and put our stuffs into the room (we stayed in Al-Safwah Royale Orchid Hotel) and straight to Masjidil Haram to do the Umrah. The mosque is always packed with people doing Umrah even in the midnight. Subhanallah.
After doing Umrah, we also had a tour around places when Muslim do the Hajj (Muzdalifah, Arafah, etc.). Jabal Noor, Jabal Rahmah, are some hills we visited. I went with the groups from ADzikra by bus, while my parents and brother went to other Thaif by car.
Surprisingly, there was this Arabian teh kotak 😀 The next few days, I found out Indofood’s Sambal & Mie around Jeddah. Well, local brands were there too.
After the tour, we went to Jironah mosque to do the next umrah.. Yeah, it is outside the Haram boundary, the nearest one.
This is my favourite one from Arab! Al-Tazaj chicken is a must eat when you go to Makkah (or other places in Arab).
And, a picture with my family after dinner with the group in Muzdalifah 🙂
I wore Moroccan dress from my dad, a super cheap scarf I bought in Madinah, and Accesorize headband 🙂
This is just a random travel photo story, hope to inspire you in some ways.
Next destination after Makkah is Jeddah!
