  • The Friday Round Up (2 Nov): halal cosmetics, Turkish beaches, Indonesian fashion and Chinese food favourites

    It’s Friday once again, and this time we come to you following the celebration of Eid ul Adha, the Festival of Sacrifice. This is one of the two major celebrations of the Islamic calendar, the other one being Eid ul Fitr which follows Ramadan.
