We started blogging last year in June after we came back from Umrah and our first posting was about our trip to Mecca and Medina where we were tasked to accompany Tok, our grandmother who was 89 years old then to perform Umrah. Since then, we have posted more than 70 articles on various topics. Thanks to Uncle (Shahir Ali) who prompted us to blog and never fail to post his comments.
This year, Tok sponsored another seven family members of the Gombakclan. She decided not to join the group this year because of the pain she has been suffering around her ankle making it difficult for her to walk. Aunty Connie, Uncle Onn, Chop, Ani, Meer, Ira and Shasha were selected for the trip and Chop took the opportunity to bring along his son, Harith to join the entourage.
Before they left for KLIA last Thursday, 3 June 2010, they gathered at Tok's house to say goodbye to her. The rest of the Gombakclanners, Tok Unggal and Tok Su were there to send them off. They are scheduled to return home on 13 June 2010.
By now, they are already in Mecca and have performed their first umrah. Hope they will remain healthy despite the hot weather condition and the constructions surrounding Masjidil Haram.
