Eid-ul-Fitri 2010

Yes, yes... I know Syawal month came and went. I was just too busy attending all the open houses and weddings and other events. You know how it's like.

So, to sum everything up in a not-so-draggy post, I'll just let you feast your eyes on the photos we took during the month of Syawal.

This Eid, we spent our first day in Tok Mama's hometown in Rembau. On the eve of Eid everyone worked together to prepare some traditional food. They're a must for every Eid and have to be done according to Nek Wan's specification too! - Ketupat and Lemang.


Tok Uda was the one who had to look after the Lemangs since everyone was late (we also arrived later that night, after the Takbir at PJ)


The morning of Eid, Mommy and I got up and got ready as soon as the rest of the family left for Eid prayers.


When everyone came back from prayers, we gathered and took some pictures together in our red outfits (it's our theme colour this year).





Nana Belle gave this to me when we visited her in Scotland in April.

Then, we went and visit a few relatives...




The next day, we went to Aunty Huda's house in Muar.


It is normal to have 'open houses' throughout the month of Syawal and we are encouraged to visit friends, old and new in this month too. So, we went to some relatives and friends' houses, especially ones that we don't get to meet often.

The first house we went in KL was Cu Jeed's house.


Her mom cooked and we tried Cu Jeed's kuih raya.



We also went to Aunty Abby's house in Putra Heights


and Tok Mae's


and Uncle Rosh's


and Aunty Ciah's (she did her daughter's birthday celebration too)


and finally, Uncle Ded's in Tropicana.


On top af all that, we also held our open house at Tok Abah's place in Subang Permai.

Did we have a good Syawal?
Yes, we did. We had a GREAT Syawal!
Hope you all did too!
