CovEid Mubarak!

Hi there.

In this post, I want to tell you about my Eid this year. So, as you all know, during the lockdown, we couldn't go out because of the virus so we celebrated Eid differently. I'm sure all of you did the same. Anyway, we were so excited the night before. That Friday, we did some spring cleaning to get ready for Eid on Sunday. We actually planned to do the spring cleaning on Thursday but a package from Malaysia did not arrived that day or the day before. Oh, you guys must be wondering why do we need to wait for that package. Well, it was because the package had our Raya groceries and decorations so we had to wait for the package to arrive first so that we can get ready. Anyway, that night we had everything ready. Just after Isya' prayers, we did a Zoom call with the KMG (Komuniti Malysia Glasgow) to perform our Takbir together. It was so fun. After that, we drifted off to bed so we can get up early for the first day of Raya!!!

Package arrived from Malaysia!

The next morning, after our Eid prayers, we had some breakfast before we took some pictures. Our theme colour for this year is black and grey. After we had taken pictures, we did a Zoom call with the #bibanicrew and also the FAFamily. Here are some pictures for day 1.

Day 2.

For day 2, we had a picnic in our backyard since it was so sunny on the 2nd day of Eid. We also had more Satay! Even though we didn't get to go out for our Raya visits, it was still a fun experience. Here are some pictures to end the blog.

Dadda grilling more Satays.

We had more Raya food!

We also had time to fool around a bit.

That is all for now folks! Before I go, let me wish Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir dan Batin and Happy Eid Mubarak to all of my family, friends and loved ones! Hope you had a good one! Until then, stay tuned for more stories.🎉😉

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!

Make sure you read this too!
