AUSTRALIA DAY 2009

WENT TO SEE THE AUSSIE DAY FIREWORKS WITH HUBBY -TO INITIATE HIM AND MAKE HIM FINALLY FEEL LIKE HE’S IN AUSTRALIA. I’M SURE HE FEELS OTHERWISE.

WE’RE STILL HOUSEHUNTING .HE STILL RANTS AND RAVES ON HOW RIDICULOUSLY HARD IT IS JUST TO RENT A PLACE AS WELL AS HOW COLD PEOPLE ARE HERE AS COMPARED TO HOME AND JUST HOW PEOPLE COULD SURVIVE IF THEY WERE MIGRATING ON THEIR OWN AND HAD NO FAMILY BECAUSE MONEY JUST GETS EMPTIED SO QUICKLY FROM OUR POCKETS.

HE STILL HAS PLANS TO HAVE US MOVE BACK TO EGYPT AFTER WE PAY OFF THE DEBT, AND I ASKED HIM WHY? -WHEN OF ALL THE PLACES HE’S BEEN TO AND LIVED IN, AUSTRALIA’S THE BEST PLACE WHERE HIS ISLAM HAS GROWN AND BECOME ONLY BETTER AND THAT FINALLY NOT ONLY DOES HE HAVE TIME FOR HIS FAMILY, BUT ALSO TIME FOR ALLAH. THIS SHOULD BE A GOOD ENOUGH MANDATE TO STAY.

LUCKY WE DIDN’T CATCH THE TRAIN BECAUSE IT WAS SO PACKED WHEN IT ALL ENDED. GLAD I WENT ALONG WITH HIS IDEA IN PARKING AT THE PERTH TRAIN STATION.

HUBBY WAS BEWILDERED WITH ALL THE DRUNK AND LOUD PEOPLE SCREACHING “AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE OI OI OI!” IN AMONGST THE SEA OF GOLD, GREEN AND BLUE.

ALWAYS ON AUSTRALIA DAY OUR BELOVED THE WEST AUSTRALIAN PAPER FEATURES HOW UNAUSTRALIAN MUSLIMS HERE ARE OR WEEKS LEADING UP TO IT, HOW WE SHOULDN’T CHANGE THEIR WAY OF LIFE.

I’M LIKE WHO’S WAY OF LIFE? WHY ARE PEOPLE CELEBRATING AUSTRALIA DAY WHEN FOR THE ABORIGINALS, IT WAS INVASION DAY, ETHNIC CLEANSING DAY. HOW COULD WE CELEBRATE ONE WAY OF LIFE WHEN LITERALLY EVERYONE WHO CAME TO AUSTRALIA WAS AN IMMIGRANT, EVEN ABORIGINALS THEMSELVES. SINCE WHEN WAS THE AUSTRALIAN CULTURE A MONOCULTURE WHEN THERE’S SO MANY PEOPLE FROM ALL CORNERS OF THE WORLD? THE TYPICAL AUSSIE MEATPIES DON’T JUST HAVE WORCHESIRE SAUCE BUT SATAY, CHILLI, QUACOMOLE ETC ETC TOO.

SINCE THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT FINALLY SAID SORRY LAST YEAR FOR THEIR PAST ILL-TREATMENT TOWARDS THE ABORIGINALS, PEOPLE ARE CONSIDERING ABOUT CHANGING THE DAY WHICH I THINK IS A GREAT IDEA BECAUSE IT FINALLY SHOWS HOW FAR WE’VE MATURED AS A NATION IN ACCEPTING THE REAL FOUNDERS OF THIS COUNTRY AND ITS CULTURE AND WAY OF LIFE.

ALSO MANY THINK JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE MUSLIM, YOU CAN’T BE AUSTRALIAN AS WELL.

WELL, IF YOU’RE EXPECTED TO SERVE HUMANITY IN ORDER TO SERVE ALLAH, HOW THEN CAN THIS NOT BE APPLIED TO MUSLIMS BE GOOD AUSTRALIAN CITIZENS AS WELL?

DID I ALSO MENTION WE HAD A PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE TOO?

PRETTY FULL ON DAY
