[one year on]

Today marks 1 year of having survived here. I know that doesn't very positive, I should perhaps have said 1 year of living with my hubby-bi [mashup of hubby+habibi (darling in arabic) hehe].

Time flies even when you're not busy with things to do. I can vouch for that because in between figuring out how to fill my time and becoming an expert at fb games, time seemed to slip away and suddenly it's been one whole year since I came. Quite an achievement I must say, I did not expect to last so long here, seriously.

I have accomplished my main goal in coming here - to do my Haj. Alhamdulillah, with my capable husband and His Guidance, we managed to complete the fifth pillar of Islam at such a young age. Our time has not come yet to move out of here, though I still hope and pray it will come soon. Yes I've made friends, have a pretty easy and simple life here, but as the old adage goes, there is indeed no place like home.

I guess things will get easier as more time goes by. Perhaps I've given up fighting, or perhaps He is helping me cope. Whatever it is, I've had a wonderful year with my darling and am looking forward to more us time here :)
