Another bed time story...
It's 2.30 am now, so I guess I will just update on what's going on in the last 8 days then go to sleep. One of the highlights would probably be exactly a week ago, I lost one of my close relatives. She just called me a few days before it happened, and suddenly I heard the news the first thing when I woke up on Friday morning. It took me 2 days to finally realized it for real coz it was so sudden and shocking for me. God bless her soul. We all came from God and we will all return to God.
Then I experienced my first christmas ever!
Even though I had nothing to compare with, I really enjoyed it. We were invited for a dinner with Thordis's family on Sunday night, and then to Kristin's family on Monday night.
In Kristin's house, I finally for the first time in my life I ate lobster. So now I can officially say that I LIKE LOBSTER :)
Not enough with 2 dinner invitations, the next night I was invited for dinner by an Indonesian guy, Fikri, who has been living in Iceland for 10 years. He's married and has 2 very cute children. There were so many food there coz he was also inviting his friends, and I got home with some extra food from him ( a little bit embarrassed at the beginning, but well...don't waste good food :p).
Today I heard about the big earthquake in Taiwan. It's very sad to hear about this, I hope there will be no more victims there. The earthquake also has a very big impact to the internet connections in most of the asian countries, even to India, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. It really makes me feel bad everytime I heard any natural disasters, like the big flood from the mountain in Aceh about a week ago that already had 200,000 people evacuated. But I still want to close this with a smile. As bad as it migt be, all this made me feel nothing but being even more grateful, yet also think on what can I do.
Right now, more than 3 millions people are in Mecca doing the Hajj, a pilgrimage to Mecca that every moslem must do at least once in their life if he/she has the capability (physically and financially). And by Sunday, we're going to celebrate Eid ul-Adha, one of the 2 main Islamic holy days.
Really looking forward to it! :)
