Hope I’m not too late to wish my followers/readers a Blessed Eid Mubarak :)
“Taqabbalallahu Minna wa Minkum”, May Allah accept good deeds from us and from you. In Shaa Allah..
How’s your Eid celebrations so far? Mine is rather stagnant, I’m not sure why.. Though our house have been renovated and completed way before Ramadhan, we decided not to welcome Syawal at our new place simply because we were not ready and we just.. didn’t want to. Haha! Takpe lah, kasi lah kita chance last beraya di rumah mak bapak kita ok?
Let me just share with you the highlights of my Eid celebrations this year.
Started Day 1 at the in-laws’ house..
Next year’s Raya, In Shaa Allah kalau takde halangan eh, akan tambah lah lagi satu member dalam family nie.. Eh bukan, saya belum mengandung lagi. Hahaha tapi saya akan ade besan lah.
Lepak. Habiskan keropok kat rumah mertua hahaha.
After which, we went to Azan’s paternal’s aunts’ place (his grandparents had passed away) at Boon Lay then to his grandma’s place at Bukit Batok. At about 3pm, we left to join my family at my paternal aunt’s place at Bukit Panjang.
One with my grandma. Don’t mind my cousin’s finger at the top of the picture, and don’t mind my hands on my tummy hahaha I have no idea why I did that.
We ended our Day 1 at Tampines, my maternal uncle’s place (my grandparents had passed away too). No picture for that because I was totally shagged and dead.
Day 2 was spent with my maternal family. They insisted on visiting my place though they were aware I have barely anything in my house. Not even kuih raya hahah! Tapi air Raya ade lah. But because we were heading to my cousins ‘s place which is behind my block, they insisted and they didn’t mind at all. Alhamdulillah, berbesar hati that they still wanted to visit my house hehe.
Before heading to my place, I bought durians and we had a feast at my place.
One with my maternal cousins!
And here’s the squad – not in picture is Pak Lang and family & Mak Long and family.
The following weekend, Day 8 was spent with my paternal family pulak.
So happy with my cousins’ Hijrah, Alhamdulillah! (the one in black and nude)
With some of my nieces and nephews. The ones I’m close with.
Few of the many wefies we took that day! Group nie memang kecoh. They are my father’s brother’s children whom I regard them as my own older brothers and sisters. Yup, nie baru 2 families je tapi dah kecoh macam nak roboh rumah orang. Dengan boomerang tak habis-habis lagi..
My uncle’s children are all married already, while I’m the only married one in my family. My siblings, bila nak join married club nie hahaha!
Abah and his nephews (his brother’s children)
Alhamdulillah, this year I didn’t have to handle any annoying questions/comments like “Belum ade lagi??”.. Instead, they were all saying something like “Takpe, settle rumah dulu.. Mesti lepas tu sangkut punya” and “Allah lebih tahu.. Cik/Wak/Nyai doakan semoga Aifa dapat zuriat secepatnya yeee..” Heheh I honestly felt really loved and blessed each time someone said that to me. Alhamdulillah.. Moga Allah kabulkan doa-doa tu semua, Ameen!
Oh ya. 1 question which people kept asking me/Azan this time was – “Eh asal belum pindah lagi? Bila nak pindah?” Hahaha at that point of time, we really didn’t have the answer because we honestly didn’t know when to move in officially.
But now, dah boleh jawab “In Shaa Allah, hujung bulan ni.. Kasi habis Raya sekali lah” Hehehe.
