With both ears feeling plugged due to the altitude changes and no amount of swallowing or sucking medicinal tablets for sore throat to ease the plugged feeling, there's also my spouse raging with a high temperature besides me and heavy coughing enveloping both of us throughout the 9 hour journey, the plane carrying the Haji and the Hajjahs from KT 01 from Jeddah landed safely in KLIA around 9.30 pm (local time) on the 1st of November 2012.... not exactly the picture I had in mind on how our state of health would be when we first flew into Madinah on the 17 of September 2012! I feel like kicking the man who was seated in the opposite aisle for looking so healthy and in a jovial mood and I noticed too he had the time to change his casual attire into a crisp white jubah with spanking black polished shoes just an hour before landing!
We were the last few to leave the plane due to hubby's high temp but somehow he was left behind when I managed to pass a few others on the way out. I kept glancing back when he was nowhere in sight when I heard my name announced to please return to where a group of Tabung Haji's personnels were on hand to greet the pilgrims when we left the plane.
Rupa-rupanya suami ditahan oleh petugas TH untuk diperiksa kesihatan yang sudah tampak jelas uzur untuk diperiksa oleh seorang doktor yang sememangnya ditempatkan disitu sekiranya ada jemaah haji yang nampak lemah dan tidak bermaya. Selepas dibuat pemeriksaan, ubat segera diberi. Malam tu kami bermalam di KLIA bahagian domestik untuk penerbangan esok pagi-pagi balik ke KB. Terima kasih kepada petugas TH yang sedia melayan kami semasa di KLIA sehingga ke check-in counter untuk penerbangan ke KB.
But there's a bright spot waiting for us in KB albeit our discomfort on our return from the Haj....
Our first cucu... Wan Ahmad Daiyan. After six years our eldest daughter gave birth to him when we were in Makkah on the 2nd of October 2012.
Berteka teki macam mana rupa cucu bila di sana handphone tidak dapat menerima gambarnya. Alhamdulillah bila seorang anak sepupu juga ke Makkah untuk tunaikan haji bawa bersamanya gambar yang dinanti-nanti pada 16 Okt...
Will blog a bit more about our pilgrimage later and this piece is written on the insistence of my sister and daughter....dia orang kata lama-lama tak blogging you won't get any readers to read your blog..yelah tu.... blog ni pun bukannya ada ramai viewers. Mula-mula balik dulu memang tidak ada keinginan langsung nak tulis apa-apa...berjalan pun macam atas angin tidak berpijak ke bumi yang nyata...but for the families' sake...here I am back again :)
