Have a look at a terrific set of black & white portraits from the streets of Amman, Jordan, taken by a Malaysian photographer.

In other news, this past Friday was the 10th anniversary of my marriage, walhamdulillah. I wouldn’t change a thing, but 5 (and a half) kids, 4.5 circumnavigations of the planet and 8 changes of address in ten years – whew! I hope the next ten are slightly less hectic.

  1. Salaam ‘alaikum. Congrats on your anniversary. Milady and I recently celebrated our fourth. I’m hoping to complete one circumnavigation (I’ve gotten about 2/3 around so far) and, of course, we’d like some kids of our own.

  2. Thank you for the blessings. Insha’allah. I talked to Milady, and she’s willing to take one of the kain batiks. You have my e-mail address?
