Eid ul-Fitr Day at our mosque

Eid Day is always a festive time for Muslim students in Dunedin and this year's Eid was no different despite how busy we all are as some of us complete our final year at varsity. 

I've had this dress for over a year but didn't wear it out to anywhere. I thought it would be a shame to buy new clothes just for the sake of buying new clothes, know what I mean? *wow, did I really just say that? My Mum would be so proud of me!*


Without going into details, someone was unexpectedly hospitalised during Shawwal for almost a week. These bouquets really brightened up the hospital room. 



Alhamdulillah, they were discharged on my birthday so we had a quick birthday lunch at the city's newest cafe, Angus Cafe.

Now that was meant to be a quick post to say I'm still alive!
I hope everyone had a happy Eid and is having a good month of Shawwal. I know mine has been.... hm, eventful.
I'm not really in the mood to do anything else but study so I've decided to become a hermit for the next few weeks. But don't fret. I know I can't stay away from the blogging world for too long.

Sayonara for now.
