Eid Mubarak

Eid Mubarak!!!. How was your Raya? This year I can safely say that we quite well prepared for the big day. The night before, the house was properly cleaned, the floor was vacuumed and mopped by my beloved husband. All the kuih (more kerepek really as I didn't have enough time to bake cookies for ourselves) were in their special Raya containers.

It was quite a refreshing change from our previous Raya preparations where not much was done until the very last couple of hours before Hari Raya itself. In on other words, this time around, we successfully avoided all the kelam kabut of previous Raya mornings.



In the morning itself, I think this was the first time in over 10 years where we had a proper breakfast together before my hubby went to the mosque for Eid prayers. Overall, for many different reasons this Raya actually felt like real Raya. We headed to our friends' houses after prayers and a few of them came over to our house in return. I didn't cook a lot because as usual, we would go to a few other houses to stuff ourselves. By midnight, we were filled with an enormous amount of all the Raya food.



We had planned to go visting some more friends to continue the Raya celebrations the day after. Unfortunately, we were feeling down and got sick. I think it was all related to allergic reactions as too much food had udang kering in them. Not surprisingly, we all had problems with our sinuses. What a terrible day that turned out to be.



Ah well, Raya here feels the same like when we're in Malaysia and it does last for the whole month of Syawal. So, hopefully we still have plenty of time to bermaaf-maafan with friends and continue stuffing ourselves with Raya food.

Anyway how was your Raya, you guys? Had fun? Whatever it is, just take extra care of yourselves and eat wisely. Tomorrow will be normal day again for us here. Ameera starts her first day of school tomorrow morning. Yikes...
