Monte's with the Ms In My Life

Tonight I ate the yummiest dinner I've had in months! Alhamdulillah, for good food and good company. It was the perfect goodbye meal... thank you.

900 gm grilled lobster in garlic butter. I feel spoilt rotten now. 

Some of the freshest oysters I've ever had.

I even tried escargot for the first time. It was baked in cheese. Can't say no to that.

I know I take a lot of things for granted but not this time. These past few months have been a rollercoaster ride but I feel like the luckiest girl in the world because inshaAllah, I will be travelling to a place that is very close to my heart very, very soon. So soon that I'm doing some last minute packing right now.

Alhamdulillah, for everything and I mean everything

Say: "O my Lord! Let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honour, and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honour; and grant me from Thy Presence an authority to aid (me)."
{Surah Al Isra, verse 80}

assalamualaikum,Glad your having a jolly time, lol :) though always remember even the "good things" in life are also a challenge, for example, if someone had wealth, his test - will he splurge and be a slave to his wealth or be humbled by it?
see 1:35 if you have not much time but still wanna watch :p
this video is long, but something about it always keeps me coming back, makes me appreciate so much for being born a muslim.
muah, love your posts! peace be upon you sis, hope Allah guides you to the straight path:)

Anon: As far as I know, the only things that are considered non-Halal, aside from swines, are carnivores and amphibians. Escargots are land snails so they should be fine.

Dear Sha,

I love to eat escargot and was shocked when my friend said that it is haram. I did some research and the view seems to be divided. Sigh.

However, please see this comments from Metro :(
