My 2nd Eid

We just celebrated Eid on the 20th of September, 2009. It was my 2nd Eid-ul-Fitri. This year, we celebrated Eid with Dadda's family in PJ first. We went to Papa and Mama's house in PJ on Friday, 2 days before Eid. At night, on the eve of Eid, we played fireworks with everyone. It was quite exciting, although I was a little afraid of the fire coming out of the 'stick'.


Mommy, I'm scared!! MOM!

On the morning of Eid, Dadda woke up early to go to the mosque for Eid prayers while Mommy and I woke up later and got ready. After prayers we had breakfast together. Mama (Dadda's mommy) made a special dish called Nasi Dagang. After breakfast, we gathered to take photos and exchanged money packets! Yes, us kids get lots and lots of money packets given by adult relatives and friends, he... he... something I look forward to everytime we go visit someone during Eid month.

Jumping with JOY!

We then went back to Tok Mama's kampung in Rembau, Negeri Sembilan later in the afternoon on the 1st day. There we met with more relatives and I received more money packets! We drove to Muar, Johore on the 2nd day of Eid to visit Aunty Huda and her family and then headed back to Subang Jaya that night. On the 3rd day, Papa and Mama came to Subang along with the rest of the PJ clan.

On the 4th day, we had to drive all the way to Kelantan (I'm not sure where it is but we took ages to get there and come back!). We were there for a wedding of Dadda's cousin. On the way back from Kelantan, we stopped over at Tia's house in Kuantan. Dadda, Mommy and I fell sick after our hectic schedules so we spent our last few days of the week resting at home.

I had a week of Eid holiday and I was back to school the week after. Recently, we had Eid celebration at school and everyone had to turn up in our traditional clothings. Naturally, I turned up in Baju Kurung. We had fun and ate lots of food. Mommy and Dadda came late so they didn't get to see all of us in our special clothes.

I can't tell you about every single thing that had happened during the Eid month because if I do, this post will go on and on and it will never stop. So, I'll just post pictures for you to see, ok? To sum it all up, I was soooo busy in the whole month of Syawal.

Looking forward to more hectic Syawals in the years to come...
