Tubing

Yesterday, all thanks to Allah (swt), we went tubing at a lake about 45 minutes away from our house. It was really exciting escpecially for me, since I have never ridden a rollercoaster in my life; forget about tubing and riding a boat at 56 mph! After that, we went swimming. Lately, I've decided that all those halalified swimsuits are not so halal anymore. They get tight in the water and--you know the rest.
SO i tried something new in the lake this time! (and i am bound not to try it again). I SWAM WITH MY ABAYA! yes I know, it was so fun. But I hadn't planned out that my Abaya would get all skin-tight and not serve it's purpose anymore! And I suffered from hypethermia (exaggerated) because I didn't have extra clothes planned out!

Yes, so I learned my lesson!

Wow how exciting!!
But did the abaya feel heavy after a while?! There are some (read:very few) modest swimsuits out there and once you get in the water you can't see anything!
Anyway, masha'Allah, I'm glad you had fun!

OMG!! V.K., you really exaggerate. First of all, it was NOT 56 mph. It was around 40 (which is still a lot but you know) and you did not even get-ugh!! I am going to continue on my blog!

Slave of God: 7abibty, go ahead. I don't think anyone minds reading YOUR point of view about our trip. :)

Modest Justice: Yes the Abayah felt pretty heavy! But I swam close to shore, so I wasn't really worried about drowning. I do have one of those modest swim suits that I got from Egypt. Except it gets a little too tight when it gets drenched. All in all, I still haven't found a way to be able to swim confidently in front of men.

Nailz-in-Aus: Yes, it is pretty annoying having to get out of the water, and make sure no one is there to watch this embarrassing part of the swim! lol

May Allah make it easy for us all!!
