Leaving On A Jet Plane

Salam all,

Alhamdulillah, I have safely arrived here in Oslo, Norway at 8am local time and 2pm Malaysia time after almost 14 hours of flight. It was raining heavily when the plane touched down the Oslo airport and the temperature was 12 celc. It was cold but I kinda enjoyed it when the smoke came out every time we talked...hihi :)

I'm here to visit my beloved hubby and celebrate first Ramadhan with him before going back to my beloved son. Fadzil will return back to Malaysia few days after that. Oh yes, Muhammad Faaz Naqi is not with me right now. He is staying with his Nana & Nani and alhamdulillah, according to Mama he is doing well, enjoying being pampered by his grandparents. Nevertheless, it's the first time we both are apart from the first day I conceived him. Only Allah knows how much I missed him right now! Just wished that I can bring him along although deep down inside my heart, I'm glad I didn't. Will tell you why later...


Alhamdulillah, traveling to Europe is one of my dreams that finally fulfilled; way above my target of 35 years old. Meanwhile, traveling to European countries all by myself, is like my wildest dream and being someone who afraid to travel abroad ALONE, I've made it!! Thank you so much to my hubby, both families and close friends for believing in this budak penakut :P Fiza laling, Nuurill Mea, Izu & Diyana, I heart you guys as well.. mmmuahs!! :)


I guess I'll stop here first. It's 11pm and I'm sleepy after a looooong day. Hope to enjoy as much as I can here; away from hectic work (if you still remember this post), holidaying and honeymooning with Fadzil :P Happy Friday to all of you. Hope to update this blog and to do bloghopping as usual really soon.


To Muhammad Faaz Naqi my beloved son,

Know that not even a minute that I forgot about you. I'm glad you didn't see me crying for you at the airport. I kept on holding my heart pendant and kept on viewing your photo inside it the whole journey from KL - Amsterdam -Oslo. I am still doing this...it makes me strong. Looking forward for our next skype video calling session darling. Daddy & Mommy missing you like crazy! (Today itself we went to 3 toy shops (similar to Toys R Us) just because we miss you :)

InsyaAllah, when ur slightly bigger, ada rezeki...we go to Europe as a family pulak. Amin. Be good to everyone ok? remember son, absence makes heart grows fonder! *hugs*


Till the fingers meet the keypad again...Happy Coming Ramadhan al-Mubarak, everyone! :)

From Oslo with Love,

Have a great time with your husband.. while u're there.. :)

Nadine said...

Mea,

Thanks sgt2 babe for the advice n tips. You inspire me to be brave :) So far I belum sesat lagi. Each time tgk signboard mmg I baca 10x la nak confirmkan gate n direction. hihihi..

You, Amsterdam airport tu besar giler kan?! I punye transit masa pegi 1hr je. Sampai early 10mins from scheduled tp queue kat imigresen panjang giler! it took me almost 25mins just to get through. Jadi pastu mmg berlari2 anak la I nak pegi the next gate yg sungguh jauuuuh di hujung sana. Nasib sempat. Phewww. Tp balik nnti I transit 6hrs. smpt tak jalan2 eh? anyway, I plan to do some shopping kat sana :)

itula, alhamdulillah dia ok sbb friday, saturday n sunday rumah ramai org, ade engagement my SIL. Ramai org melayan dia. Mlm je la bila nak tido dia duk cari I. tp skang everyday twice berwebcamming via skype, pagi n night b4 tido...terubat sket rindu :)
I je yg at first ber"hujan lebat".Faaz rileks je. Malu I :P

Hihi, mmg you. I mmg tak on hp, kecuali waktu2 tertentu. Lappie office pun I tinggalkan. Bawak notebook simple jer, cukup utk surf n webcamming. Mmg takmo pk pasal kije :D Ok dear, nnti will update about this trip and bloghopping jugak. entry terbaru you pun i belum sempat baca lagi. will do it soon!! ;)

take care n salam ramadhan :)

Nadine said...

Izu,

Thanks to you too :) Feel so lucky Im being surrounding by caring friends just like you. Sampai kat departure hall pun sempat sms bg semangat. I really appreciate it. So sweet of you dear :)

Hari first tu mmg sejuk sgt. cuz it rains almost the whole day (nasib bawak payung. Hihi). Tp from Saturday onwards bright n sunny with cold air. Best! Mcm siang di M'sia tp dlm aircond. Oh well, you know this very well aren't you? :)

Ok Izu, InsyaAllah. Cuma tula, kitaorg dua2 suka ambil gambar dr bergambar, jd scenary photos yg lebey. Hahaha.

Take care Izu, Slamat Menyambut Ramadhan Al-Mubarak to you and ur family.

p.s: Fadzil kirim salam balik pd Izu & Isham :)

Nadine said...

Mas,

yeah bebeh. I'm at the other side of the world :)

rindu? SANGAT!! Esp. the first day tu, Im on 14hours flight. Manalah dpt sms ke, call ke, webcamming ke. Dlm flight mmg duk tenung photo dia yg dlm loket rantai aku jer *sob*

Tp skang ok sket sbb hari2 twice berwebcam dgn Faaz. Since dia dh pandai ckp, seronokla bual2 sambil tgk aksi comel dia tu! tp tula..tak dpt hug n kiss..huhu.

thanks Mas :)

Nadine said...

Didie,

Thanks :) A'ah..ini honeymoon ganti our swiss honeymoon pas kawin yg tak jadi sbb akak dh preggy kan Faaz. Hihihi..

A'ah, every year dulu kalau abg Fadzil pegi Oslo mmg berwebcam la kitaorg melepaskan rindu. Sini internet very2 fast and wifi everywhere so mmg no problemo. You know, before bertolak mmg kitaorg dh bagi crash course kat PIL akak utk guna skype. Hahaha!


Yes dear, I'm so lucky Mama ade jaga Faaz. In fact, PIL la yg beria2 push akak suh akak pegi visit abg Fadzil kat Oslo nie. Mama siap belikan akak very nice jacket from Zara utk ceriakan mood akak yg sedih nak tinggalkan anak :)

Hehe, sini nak shopping kena pk 2-3kali gak Didie. The price are so expensive. Kalau tak pk, mau pengsan balik Mesia nanti. :D

Nadine said...

Nadia,

Helloo there :) Bg org yg tak pernah pegi Europe lagi, oh YES, sgt best this experience. Rasa mcm tak percaya pun ade gak. Hihi..alhamdulillah :) Insyaallah, nnti turn you pulak. Kalau bleh bawak the whole family lagi best kan? :)

You, takla. I save duit for this trip je. Tickets,blanja n all. bkn mainly for shopping. I pegi pun kira cam adhoc sbb x plan langsung. Last minute br I decided nak pegi lepas my in-laws beria2 suruh.

Duit diaorg lg murah dr kita tp harga barang kat sini very2 expensive you. Bayangkan air mineral sebotol cost u rm15, and a large vegetarian pizza cost you rm300! Tp skang tgh summer sale, time sale some things mmg murah2. Hotel I duduk plak in the middle of the road yg bnyk shopping outlet. Mmg rambang mata! Tp I plan shopping sket2 utk Faaz je kot..tgkla budget mcm mana. Hihi :)

Ok dear, I will :)

Nadine said...

Lady D,

:) thanks dear. haha, yes, boleh *blush*. I've made it. Wooot! woot! the next test is masa balik nanti. Doakan tak sesat jugak plisss :D

u are right my dear. I will cherish this trip and make full use out of it. Nak dpt pegi trip mcm ni lagi, tak tau bila kan? Harini pun dh dpt "Me" time since Fadzil dh start bekerja. Plan nak pegi jalan sorang2. Tgh baca peta lagi nie. Nanti dh confident br berani nak kuar jalan :))

MOMMAHOLICSURI said...

Nadine, mmg besar Airport kat situ!! If i'm not mistaken, if u transit more than 2 hours there, u can visit the central, dear. You can leave the airport easiest way is to use the train which takes about 10-15 minutes and takes you straight into Amsterdam central station cost 3-4 euros.
The Trains run regularly approx every 15 min so this will give a god time to explore the City.

Tapi.. jangan lupa balik Airport untuk catch your connection flight at least 2 hours before tau!!! kang x pepasal u kene tido Amsterdam :)

I used to collect Hard Rock T-shirt everytime i'm abroad.. so, kalau u nak jgk HardRock, senang je, dari central, check the map..naik Tramp..dekat je.. xsilap i..u can buy all round ticket for EURO 14..and u boleh naik tramp kemana-mana di Amsterdam..

Kat sana pun banyak kedai souvenir. Wajiblah u beli fridge magnet bunga tulip or windmill kan!! :)

Nadine said...

Zura,

Sila jangan kagum plis. Zura tak tau dlm hati Nadia mcm mana along the journey. Dup dap, dup dap. Layan emo sorang2 tu jgn ckpla. Iyela suami disana..anak disitu. Kita plak sorang2 dlm plane. Tp alhamdulillah. Faaz surprisingly is behaving well. Dia tak nangis2 cari Nadia. Cume rengek2 manja je. Bila buat webcall dia ceria n tak melalak nangis rasa relief sgt. Hilang sket rindu. Bg kekuatan.

Bila jalan2 tu jumpa anak mat salleh teringat Faaz. Pegi kedai toys teringat Faaz. Mmg kitaorg all the way pun borak pasal dia je la. Notebook pun merata kitaorg hangkut in case dia nak webcall kitaorg dh ready :)

InsyaAllah, someday Zura pun boleh punye. Sblum tu I suggest jumpa our consultant, Nuurill. She's a pro and she helps a lot. Im sure pastu mesti bleh punyer :)

ok dear, insyaAllah ade rezeki tu, Nadia doakan. thanks. :)

Nadine said...

Diana,

Thanks babe :) You pun dh ade pengalaman kan. Mesti u lagi kuat dr I.Long distance relationship with ur hubby some more. I salute u..

Itula berjauhan mengajar erti rindu :)

**************

Anne,

Thanks!! :)

Yep, first time mmg susah. Lagi2 org yg tak pernah pegi jauh2 sorang diri mcm I (esp penakut cam I ni kan :P). Tp alhamdulillah so far semua ok. :) Tp hopefully kalau ade rezeki, the next time ade trip I'll be able to bring Faaz as well. :)

Nadine said...

Mea,

Oh ic. Thanks so much for the info babe. I'll inform Fadzil about it. Kalau dpt green lite, and kalau I confident (ngee) bleh la I pegi jalan skejap kan. Mcm sama kat Oslo tau. Dr airport ade train trus ke Oslo central station. mmg skejap n direct so tak sesat :)

irradhil said...

wah...besnyer nadine dh sampai europe.

mmg mula2 renduuu giler kt anak kan?siap nangis2 lg kat airport.tp once dh sampai sana...dh leka ngn posing n shopping...dh kurang dh rs sedih tu.rs best lak duk berhoneymoon ngn beloved hubby kan.tp itulah....kalu ader ank kan lg best.insyaallah ader rezeki nadine leh bwk Faaz sama.

psst:posing byk2 tau...xsbr nk tgk gambar.

kella said...

ouwwwhh.. nadine so sweet la speech u to ur son..

u know what? setiap kali u menulis, i akan terus terusan membaca hingga ke titisan terakhir..setiap tulisan u sangat layan untuk dibaca! :)

selamat menyambut ramadhan.. :)
takecare!

Thara said...

this entry makes my eyes watery! sebak pulak tak masal baca the part where u had to depart with faaz. i cannot, CANNOT, imagine myself in that position! :(

eh babe kejap. potong stim jap. hahaha. why are u there in Oslo la? second, third honeymoon ke ni? eh wait. since i dah terlambat baca ur entry, i'd better read your latest entry. talk soon!

Nadine said...

Kella,


Awwwwwwh, Kella slalu bagi comment sweet2 tau. Terharu I. I kalau tuliskan, ikut suka hati..kdg2 ikut perasaan dan syok sendiri. Mcm tulis diary la kunun2. Hihi..


Tp I lagi kagum dgn ur style of writing. Ade satu je gamba yg cun, topik pendek tp mendalam. Bnyk bagi inspiration kat I. Keep on blogging ok? :)

Thanks Kella, slamat berbuka puasa in few more hours ;)

Nadine said...

Thara,

Mmg sgt sedih ok. Lagi2 sejak mengandung tak pernah berpisah kan. A week before going tu I hari2 duk pk boleh ke tak nie. Rasa mcm nak refund balik je ticket tu pun ade jugak..rasa menyesal pun ade jugak.

Tp bila pk dalam2 balik...bukan senang I nak dpt this chance. For 3 years I pujuk Fadzil nak ikut dia pegi Oslo tapi xdpt2, and when he finally said YES takkan I nk tolak kan? If I were to wait next year perhaps, I takut time tu I tgh sarat mengandung ke mcm the last time masa Fadzil went. Dahla I desperately needed a vacation. :)

Ok, reason I pegi sini roughly are:
1- to tag along Fadzil yg pegi outsation
2- dpt jimat belanja almost rm20K all in while having a nice holiday in Europe with my hubby
3- tgk2kan makan/minum Fadzil and sambut 1st puasa ngan dia
4- berehat, menenangkan fikiran n blaja berdikari utk travel sorang2 :)
