back to bengladesh

Today, as i was cleaning my computer and found some of the pictures i took from dakka bengladesh. I thought i'd share them with you all :)

Dakka airport, bengladesh

An old lady, knocking at the window for food/money (Dakka)

A mother, asking us to take her son...

A young boy barefoot, running behind our shuttle

Local taxi

Kids working on shoes

This man was showering in the street and washing his clothes

This kid told me he was asked by his dada to go get food for his family...

Sleeping woman...i remember wondering if she was still alive

So many people were sleeping in the street...and some of same naked.

I was surprise to see people living in this building although it looks like it was going to fall apart in any minute

This experience made me realize how thanful i should be to ALLAH سبحانه وتعالى for everything He has giving me and keep giving me everyday

I dont know if im mad or sad. $11 millions for an artificial christmas tree decorated with jewelery!

Extravagance at its worst


GIIIIIRLS!!!! i know that lately in my post ive been saying that i miss my old job etc BUT theres 1 thing that i dont miss at all and thats PACKING!!! i hate it sooooo much!!!
As ive told you before, im moving to Abu dhabi to finaly be with my husband =) but i feel like taking my whole house! i know they have everything there...but i'll have to buy again. I feel its stupid to leave my things behind to buy them again! But im only allowed to 90kg :(
I decided to make 4 suitcases of 22kg each.
1 with shoes. My shoes collection itself takes too many kilos.
1 with my everyday clothes (1 suitcase is surely not enough)
1 with my 7 wedding dresses, the white wedding dress with be on of my too many carry on luggages ( i can already see the flight attendant rolling her eyes at me, and avoiding eye contact so i dont ask for help! eheh yes thats what i did sometimes).
1 with my beauty products.
 I feel so annoyed with the whole thing that ive just stopped packing!


I loooove red lips and red nails!! When i was flying, grooming was so important, and back then it use to pain such an annoying thing to do your nails almost every day. Opening cans etc was always messing up the polish. If you didnt have your nails done you could get a warning letter. Now i miss it. You know what they say "you dont miss your water until the well runs dry" :p  As for the lips, whats great about the red is that you dont have to keep putting more because it doesnt face away as fast as other colors.
...i think it brights up face and hands/feet! look

 Its so neat :)

Make up


A Muslim businesswoman has launched Britain’s first range of halal make-up, free from alcohol and animal products.

Samina Akhter set up Samina Pure Make-up from her home in Birmingham after questioning the ingredients of many High Street make-up products.


Under Islamic law, alcohol and certain meats are forbidden. Pork especially, so Akhter was shocked to learn that some of the products she used contained fatty acids and gelatin from pigs.

“As a Muslim, I was questioning what I was putting on my skin,” Akhter said. “I wanted to know whether it was permissible in Islam.”

Akhter’s lipsticks and eyeliners are made from plant extracts, minerals, essential oils and vitamins.

“Many Muslim women like me have been frustrated by wanting to look good and follow their faith,” Akhter said.

Interest in the range has been shown as far as Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore.

Niqabi crew

I sometimes miss flying, mainly the adrenaline i had each time my purser would say "cabin crew sit for take off" and " cabin crew prepare for landing". The feeling i had when the aircraft was climbing higher and higher in the sky...A lot of friends or family members couldnt believe that i actually loved that feeling.

Lots of flight attendants miss the sky when they quit...and many of them go back to it!
As i was forcing myself to sleep last night, i thought what if we had an "islamic airline"! Imagine, flights attendant wearing abayas and niqabs, hallal food, a men/women cabin!! A proper place to pray, instead of praying in the galley, next to the restrooms or even on your seat. Wouldnt that be great? Flights to Jedda were always so delayed due passengers not wanting to seat next to this man or this woman, that would make it so much easier for everyone....
As much as i can try to make this job right, it will never be because women cant travel alone (thanks to hubby for reminding me every day grrr)
