24 March: Educational Visit to Islamic Art Museum

Assalamualaikum....
Its been quite a long time I didn't update anything
though so many things happened recently.

Done with our third program (Mural Project), then
we proceed to the next program, Educational Visit to
Islamic Art Museum, Kuala Lumpur.

The program was on last Saturday, where I became the
Program Manager replacing Iqin because she can't join us

me gave a briefing before depart


















We departed from our college on 9.30 am using UIA bus

all of the participants














Madam Suzila also joined us


















yeah! everyone was excited at that moment :)














We arrived on 10 am and the bus drop us in front of the
Al Hijrah TV station, opposite to the National Mosque

Finished taking pictures around the TV station, we proceed
climbing up to the museum a few hundred meters from the 
TV station. The bus don't want to send us up there so we
have to walk and climb the hill. -.- 
tiring but that's okay. An exercise for us.

That's all from the 12 galleries. There's actually a lot more
interesting item exhibited and you can go there by yourself 
and see it with your own eyes! :P

After two hours wandering in the museum, then we decided 
to go to the national mosque for lunch and Zohor prayer

Take photo before going to the mosque! CHEERS :)

















The National Mosque


Lunch! :) 


The National Mosque has become one of the tourist attraction
in Kuala Lumpur. 


So any tourist that do not wear hijab
or cover their body properly still can enter the mosque
but they must wear a cloak to cover their body regardless
male or female.



YEAH!


Scenery around the mosque,




















After performing the Zohor prayer, we went back to our
college and arrived around 2.45 pm safely.
Alhamdulillah... 

Lots of experience I gained from visiting the museum.
Pondering the uniqueness of Islamic art. They are
so creative! without degree in art nor modern equipments,
they can produce a very fascinating artworks.
I can't disagree more. Artworks from ancient people
far more creative and beautiful than today 
computerized artwork.

Thanks for the cooperation from all my hisbah members,
participants and off course madam suzilah. I hope we would
conduct a better program in the future together :)

Thanks to Iqin too for proposing such a cool idea 
to have a visit here. We wish you are here though.

No more else. I hope you enjoy reading!

Bye!

P.S : two more programs to gooooo -.-
