Warning: This is going to be a picture heavy post documenting our Hari Raya celebration :)
This year Aidilfitri is celebrated with a bit of a twist, due to some changes in traveling plans, for the first time in my entire life, I did not celebrate Raya morning with my parents *sobsob* though it was my idea (nominate me for sainthood, now) it still made me a bit moody for a bit :p It was also the first time where Ryan, Iman and Ranya spend the night in Atuk Malek's and Nenek J's house, obviously they were excited.
The benefits of spending the night at Jalan Kebun is being able to experience the "kampung style" celebration again - rebus ketupat outdoors, gotong royong, takbir raya and baraan. So it was a good exposure for the little kiddies.
The last night of Ramadan (27 July 2014)
Ryan followed his atuk around kampung for takbir, he was excited as he's able to collect duit raya -__- The highlight of the event is listening him learn takbir raya within hours and later leading the "doa makan" when the group came over my in laws house. It was so funny when after a confident recital of the doa in Arabic, he forgotten the translation and asked the "packik" in front of him "apa ah? Ryan lupa" *facepalm* At least I know he had fun :)
1 Syawal 1435 (28 July 2014)
Part 1: Jalan Kebun
My darlings in their blue/silver themed bajus
Princess Iman who's proving to be the most challenging of the three
Photo session with the twins while waiting for everyone to come back from Raya prayers
The many many failed attempt of taking a good and proper family portrait :p
Tengok tu Ryan boleh pulak nak stuck his tongue out *grrrrr*
Part 2: Jalan Tepi Sungai
We reached my parents house at 11am (hahaha) but the twins was already asleep, so we postponed the salam-salam session in the evening before we left for Perak
Seperti biasa the award for the most sincere raya apology goes to my husband which teared up my parents. Ranya even started wailing after a bit when she saw he grandma crying *apalaaaa*
This budak naughty was also trained to properly minta maaf by his dad. His speech goes something like this "Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir dan batin, halalkan makan minum Ryan"
|Hahah so cute Iman and Ryan bermaafan together :p|
Group pic *yeah*
Whateverlahhh semua dah moody and malas nak layan as we were already late to start our journey back to Tanjung Malim. Photos of our Raya in Perak and Melacca coming soon *inshaAllah*
In the meantime, Have a good week back at the office everyone (I'm suffering major Monday blues)
