The past week was spent running errands and travelling all over the country settling administrative matters for my upcoming semester. In two days, I fly to the Netherlands to study for half a year under an exchange programme with my university. I am beyond thrilled – spending 5 months abroad will probably be the biggest adventure for me yet, and as much as I am anxious about the thought of surviving in a foreign environment on my own, I am excited about the experiences that await me across these waters.
Yesterday was a very happy day for my family as my uncle finally tied the knot with his one true love. Much of the day was spent dancing, laughing, and running away from all “when is your turn?” questions. The dress code for family members was purple attire (no complaints – it’s my favourite colour!) I chose a white, gold-embroidered abaya over a lilac inner piece. This white abaya is one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe. I adore gold embroidered-anything.
