Hello, 2019.

Bismillah, I have a habit of doing a yearly review on the last day of the year but somehow I missed it last year – perhaps due to the anxiety and unknowns of moving to a new country. Alhamdulillah, it’s getting better this year. It’s time for me to sit and jot down the reviews….

{Windy Hamburg} Day 1 – ICE Train

Bismillah, Our holiday started on Dec 21! Our train was scheduled at around 12.30 PM leaving Berlin Hbf. Initially, we planned to leave the house at 11 AM because the bus that is going to the Hbf only comes every 20 mins and we don’t want to risk getting late. But – of course, that…

It Has Been A Year

Today, a year ago, I left Singapore and the life that I had built there for 12 years. I said goodbye to our helper who is so dear to us and our kids. Hoping that the new family she’s working after us is going to treat her kindly. She deserves that. I said goodbye to…
