Masjid Selat Melaka, Malaysia

Ever since I was a child, my mom always stressed about the importance of mosque in our life as a muslim. No wonder it becomes my highlight when I had my mini-Indochina trip to Malaysia-Vietnam-Cambodia last April-May.

This is the first mosque that I visited, and it is in Malacca, Malaysia. Masjid Selat Melaka (the Malay name) is a very pretty mosque, in an area called Malacca Marina. I didn’t pray there as I got my period (so sad), but as I heard from my aunt, it is one of the main tourism destination in Malacca.

When you enter the parking lot, you will find the separated tower and toilets. You have to wear long and loose outfits, and it’s better if you wear hijab. My aunt wore pashmina and the security was okay – I think it was because she is Malay. If you don’t have any, you can borrow it from the female toilet.



From the south balcony, you can see an island far away, and it is Batam, Indonesia. My aunt joked that if I would, I could just swim. No, thank you, aunty, I can afford the ship ticket, LOL.



I went there after I had my lunch, and I can see there are some standing fans. But as the sea wind blowing, I could hardly feel the heat inside the mosque – very different with what I felt when I took picture near the tower. I thought I got heat struck :))

So, if you happen to visit Melacca, don’t forget to pray tahiyatul masjid here. And of course, taking loads of pictures! ;)

Yesterday I climbed the 99 m high minaret of Masjid Al-Akbar (Masjid Agung) Surabaya. It represents 99 names of Allah, Asmaul Husna.

To me 99 names of Allah are a reminder of best qualities that lies in ourselves, that if we can use it properly, it will elevate us to see life in a different perspective. And it’s beautiful up there.

Spent the first day of Ramadan fasting in Moscow for 19 hours. What an experience! It was tough but the cold breeze helps a lot :D

Lucky for me to be able to join iftar and pray at a Mushalla in Indonesian Embassy in Moscow.

Tatarstan Mosque in Moscow, Russia. I prayed Dhuha at the women section and because nobody’s there, we tiptoed to take picture of the main prayer room. When we about to go out, we can’t. Because apparently we’re locked from the outside. After calling out people from the Masjid’s window, finally the Imam open the Masjid’s door. Never a dull moment in PinkMosques agent’s life!

Beautiful Nur Mubarak Mosque in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Unfortunately we had to pray at Imam’s office, because women section is renovated and I certainly can’t say to my local Almaty Muslimah friends to pray behind men at the main hall.

For the first time ever, the Pink Mosques team: Ollie, Nana, Emie and Lisa, travel together and visit a Mosque. This time we choose Masjid Sultan, Singapore. Near the Masjid, we happily found our sanctuary, an Islamic bookstore called ‘Wardah Books’ :D
