Oo.. AIDILFITRI

Looking at people busy preparing for the coming Hari Raya reminds me of the things I used to do as a child. Celebrating Hari Raya was really exciting and fun. We (my siblings & me) would be waiting for mum to finish sewing our Baju Raya. After that we would have a mini fashion show displaying our new baju raya and shoes in front of mum & dad. Sometimes we would sleep with our new shoes as we can’t bear the thought of being separated from them. Mum would be busy baking Kuih Raya or cakes. We would sit next to her thinking of breaking our fast and hoping to have a taste of the kuih. But, we were scolded by her as we were all fasting.

At night we would light up the kerosene lamps around the house and play fireworks. Raya eve was the best time as mum would be very busy cooking and preparing the Raya dish. We can smell the aroma of her Chicken Rendang and beef curry, which made our mouth water… Her ketupat will be left on the stove for a few hours until they are nicely cooked. Then we would hang them on a piece of stick to dry off some of the extra moisture. At night we would help mum clean the house, hang the new curtains and others. We could hardly sleep as we were eager for the Raya morning to come.

In the morning we would dorn ourself with new set of Raya attire and have all the delicious dish prepared by mum. Afterwards we would go around the village from one house to another with the intention of visiting the people. But, they know that our main motive was to collect as many Duit Raya as we can. Once we were home, we would start counting our Duit Raya and thinking of what to buy with them😀

Hmm… those were the days where we were able to collect duit raya instead of giving it. However, now… I’m the one who have to part with some of my bonus and hand them to the children… Well… that’s what u call payback hehehe…. *sigh*


SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDILFITRI TO ALL, ESPECIALLY TO MY FRIENDS WHO HAPPEN TO READ THIS BLOG. MAAF ZAHIR BATIN ^_^
