I read that the temperature in Saudi is now 51-52 deg. I have sensitive skin and the temperature can lead to potential peeling and other reactions. So I decided to get myself a niqab ie the face cover predominantly used in the Arab culture. But I am no Arab wannabe. They are all in black and that’s boring. I got myself a pink niqab. I tried it and felt like a Hello Kitty ninja.
I am all packed and ready. For my non ihram attire, I have pink and purple telekung. For my ziarah, I have the long jilbab in green and white polka dot. And bright orange shoes, the colour of the Dutch jersey. I am 34 years old. I don’t wish to be an Umrah granny. Nak ibadah pun kena ada style beb. My style. Which is not to conform. 😀
