Raya 'Camel Trophy' at Ajman...and Oud Metha

Just like in Malaysia, Malaysians in Dubai seem to be celebrating Eid for a month. We received another open house invitation on Friday Sept 10th and this time it was at Ajman. What's unique about this open house is it is a combination of three hosts: Afandi/Suraya, Kak Sharifah/Abg Mustafa and Kak Faridah/Abg Musa and there were 2 sessions : from 1-4pm and from 4-7pm. So, just imagine the exodus of people coming. It was our first time going to Ajman. So, berkonvoilah 7, 8 kereta sekali. We ols ikut je.

The way to Mr Afandi and Suraya's house was really an interesting adventure in a desert. We could see camels along the way just like we saw buffaloes on our way back to Rembau. Along, Ain and Apit were very excited to see many camels around. Unfortunately, hubby's H50 was not ready to capture any pics as he himself didn't expect to see many many camels along the way. Upon reaching Afandi/Suraya's house, we saw a friend's sedan car stucked in the sand nearby. Some of the men got off the car and gave their helping hands. That's why I said it was like a 'camel trophy' adventure. I whispered to hubby...see we have a GOOD reason to consider getting a SUV or a four wheel drive, no more sedan because we are living in a desert...Alhamdulillah, semuanya selamat juga sampai ke destinasi.

Tengoklah rumah Mr Afandi and Suraya ni memang tengah padang pasir...

Alhamdulillah...kenyang macam-macam makanan dapat makan. Yang paling best, dapat makan mee udang yang mee nya Kak Sharifah buat sendiri...(kalau tak silap la). Maklumla bukan senang nak dapat mee kat sini.

On Saturday, we got another invitation to Moi's house at Oud Metha. Even though not as many people coming as the open house in Ajman, it was more merrier because we had longer quality time to chit-chat. The best thing is we ols ni sekepala, kira boleh sekapal la...especially the five of us as in the last pic on the right tu. Walaupun berlima tapi gempaknya mengalahkan penuh serumah, riuh...bapak-bapaknya pun boleh tahan gak. Anak-anak toksah citer la. These pics can tell...

The kids were also having a great time just like their fathers and mothers...port biasa diorang, dalam bilik.

Thank you to those friends for the invitation, the delicious food served and your hospitality. Terima kasih daun keladi, tahun depan jemput lagi ya. :))

Camel2 tu ziela, are they owned by anybody? or are they wild?

Kat sini lombu2 and kobau2 tu sumer orang punya. Just curious.

Along the road tu memang macam tempat peliharaan camels tapi yang my daughters nampak kat umah our friends tu macam bersepah je. Tak nampak lak tempat peliharaan. You know what...my kids seronok lak tengok the camels' shit everywhere kat pasir tu...hi hi hi
