Aidilfitri 2012 in Shah Alam

Dear Diary,

Phew, it’s already nearing end of Syawal. Time sure flies when you’re having fun. Eid this year was spent hectically, packed with activities and events up to the point that all the small children were cranky due to tiredness and lack of rest.

This year is our turn to celebrate Aidilfitri with Hubby’s family. Basically, our raya plans would follow whatever Abah’s plans are. From beginning of Ramadhan, we were told that we’d be spending raya here in Klang Valley. It was quite disappointing news because we were so looking forward to going back to Kelantan and celebrate raya there.

During the last week of Ramadhan, Abah surprised everyone when he changed his plan and decided to go back to Kelantan after all. Yeah, Kota Bharu here we come! Eve of raya, we went to Abah’s house, all packed up and readied to balik kampung.

As in tradition on the morning of Aidilfitri, we beraya with Mama and Abah and also among ourselves after solat raya. Green packets were given out to the kids much to their delight. Then we hit the dining table for brunch. Menu for the day were lemang, ketupat, rendang, nasi impit, kuah kacang, kuah lodeh, sambal ikan bilis (Mama’s sambal ikan bilis is the best. You just can’t stop eating it!) and raya biscuits. We didn’t have the chance to go anywhere because relatives and friends kept coming to Abah’s house.
