Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri!

It's the end of the holy month of Ramadhan and tomorrow muslims will celebrate the Hari Raya Aidilfitri after fasting for a month. It has always been a joyous day for me and may I recall, when I was a little girl, the day I really enjoyed most...... dressed up my best, wearing new baju, with new hairstyle, new shoes.....everything new and spending my time with my little brothers and sisters....eating all the goodies of aidilfitri....and visiting almost every house in the kampung....getting some raya money....and in the evening would play that sparkling 'bunga api' ,the one which we could hold...just lit it and moved it around and around like a magic wand! Gone are the days cos now I'm a grown-up! Well, childhood memories will always be cherished for it comes only once in my life.

This time around, everyone in my family and in others, too, is busy with our raya chores such as  decorating the house right up to preparing all sorts of dishes for tomorrow. Needless to say, there's so much to be done but everyone is in such a very merry mood that there isn't any complaint of getting tired whatsoever! It's going to be a big family gathering for me this year cos all my siblings, from far and near, are coming back except for one of my sisters who will only be celebrating  raya until the fourth day here. On the fifth day, she'll be flying over to Manchester, England and spend another part of her raya with her family there. According to her, there's no better place than spending raya in Malaysia cos the celebration here is much more merrier than elsewhere and it's rather very 'quiet' for her in Manchester. It's a big city with many people but the raya 'mood' doesn't exist like what we have here. I couldn't agree more....

Aidilfitri is also the time when we seek forgiveness from family members and friends for any wrong doing. With this opportunity, I'd like to wish all my family members, friends and readers of this blog, Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir Batin!


  1. I hope it is not too late to wish you and your family a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri :)

  2. Thank you, Abet! It's never too late...but even when it's late, it's always better late than never, right?

    Once again, thanks a lot!
