Celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri 2013

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. šŸ™‚

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, Ā first day would be to go to dad’s side followed by mum’s side the next day but not for us.

First Day

It was celebrated with a visit to my aunt’s house on mum’s side and we all gathered there.

The difference that Ā 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 šŸ˜›

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

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.

In conclusion,

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 Ā šŸ˜€ till the next post !

There’s much to be learnt from the 1 month of fast I’ve experienced lately. I was not only fasting but at the same time learning how to curb my emotions and controlling the bad desires. I learnt how not to be angry and let it go when someone decides to pull my strings. I tend to give in to other people’s complains. I learn to not gossip and badmouth, prevent myself from saying all those vulgarities people keep on saying.

I learn to acceptĀ the hard truth and forgive myself for the mistakes I’ve done. I learn how to love myself and despite not having to have everything, I’m contented with having to have nothing and make something out of it.

The 1 month has allowed me to open up to approach others and ask them for forgiveness for the things I’ve done. I’ve learned to willingly accept that mistakes is a part of a human being’s life, and feel the better about it.

I was able to read books during spare time, to read up books on life, Ā ‘The Meta Secret’, its humble teachers and its knowledge.

I’ve learnt to appreciate the people around me for having to break fast with me during the occasion, and bond more.

After all that, it has finally come to the end of fast. Its time to celebrate Hari Raya. I take my life lessons with me and bring it with me in my pocket so that I can remind myself of the better man.

Selamat Hari Raya to my Muslim friends Happy National Day for you Singaporeans!

Thanks for the support and i hope you can also pick up some of the life lessons of this post and apply them in your daily life !

 

and yes that was a reindeer’s hoof IĀ wore.
