It has come to yet another end of the fasting month. If you realise that recently, I’ve posted a picture of me in a Hari Raya costume with Christmas antlers, well that picture was last year. 🙂
This year, my family decided to go for purple for the first day and green on the second. It feels more chill towards last year. I was able to curb my appetite and not suddenly just jump and gobble up the food at everyone’s house. Hurray!
It feels good to be able to celebrate Raya again, and though I come from a small family on my mum’s side, we’re really close. Usually, first day would be to go to dad’s side followed by mum’s side the next day but not for us.
It was celebrated with a visit to my aunt’s house on mum’s side and we all gathered there.
The difference that happened last year compared to this year would be me driving the car. Yes, my family has finally decided to appoint me as role :The Driver 😛
We went on a trip to the relatives on my dad’s side after going home, a few houses to stop by, but we didn’t take photos though , maybe next year i will hopefully.
Second day was then a visit along with my mum’s side, visiting some of my aunts, uncles, and some people that the parents knew. Managed to get more shots this time round.
Some of other good times we shared together
The day I can say was spent with more compassion this time. We didn’t go to a lot of houses compared to last year, but we did manage to spend more time with closed ones. I feel more calm because I managed to go through the memories of fasting month and I felt better because i stayed on more , and feel so appreciated of what I’ve gone through, so I decided to spend time with them more.
This year Raya felt more deep than last year’s and I hope that bonds us even more. I didn’t get more duit raya from people, but that’s to be expected since I’m already more independent now.
That’s about it 😀 till the next post !
