Journey to Middle East (Amman Jordan)

It has been awhile I don't write anything here. I am so caught up with so many things. And the reason I am here now since I just recently came back from Amman Jordan for some Partner Conference, sent by my current Employer. So this thread is more about my journey to Jordan.

I think this year considered as my Middle East Travel year, since at first I was travelled to Makkah/Madinah and then now to Amman, Jordan. Oh! can count Dubai as well, since we have spent 6 hours for shopping at Dubai Airport. (he he).



My flight this time with new Emirates #A380, and you know how jakun am I to see the new flight and spacious seats. And the best part when I saw all the new list of movie. (Memang tak tidor malam lah)
Yup..got the Revenant okay..



Some people asked, why not so many people on board? but actually the flight was full.
 It just that we are the first to  go in. he he..

Captured by this nice steward, who asked me to do some silly face.

Always feel pampered with Emirates


I am always amazed with this view...


My partner in crime is Yati, She has planned to get the guide for our visit in Jordan. And when we reached there, there was this guy already waited for us at the airport to bring us around. His name is Hakimi, and the first visit in his Itenary is to the Dead Sea. I just follow along and had this incident when we reached there. There was a police blocking, and while I took the scenery pic along the dead sea, I took these police pic with Peace sign and saying Cak! to them. Then, our tour guide told us the police followed us and can see from the rear window asking us to stop.Then asked "Someone take pic, I want to see" Oh s**t.. is it a crime now, taking police pic? Then he took my phone..scroll few times.. and delete the pic. He is friendly, which makes me feel better, and asked when I reached and asked about the pic I took. and then told us to enjoy our stay here. Adoih. macam-macam. Myself ni ada je kejadian.. he he


Dead Sea

Can see the Israel border from here.

After dead sea, we went to Ashabul Kahfi Caves (Caves of the 7 sleepers) , and it is almost Zuhr. We take the chance to perform the prayer while waiting for the Caves entrance to be opened. It was amazing, to be there and to learn about the history that is mentioned in Al-Quran. It such a blessing to have the chance to view all this.

Our place for next few days.


Then our conference started. I have noticed a lot of things here about the culture and the people here. 1.They are such a beautiful people man,woman both. And the women wear make up all the time, like even their cleaner looks pretty and wear make up,
2. They are modenized, similarly like Malaysia
3. Their food is too salty. Every. single. thing. I just had enough with salt.
4. They are friendly.
5. The living cost is extremely high here. 1 jordanian dinar - almost RM 6!
