Any fairness to the narration of my Hari Raya weekend would be a caption story for its colour would only fade in elaborate words. Let the photos relay the human experience in the most unpretentious setting.
2. Congregational prayers with the extended family is a rare occasion. The gift of Hari Raya is in bringing everyone under one roof. There was even a ‘tazkirah’ by ‘pakcik’ and we shared our disgust over a recent dubious fiasco involving a DAP politician reported to deliver one in a surau which missed the important fact that ONLY a Muslim can do so. It was followed by ‘takbir raya’ and since it was the eve of Aidilfitri there was no ‘tarawih’.
7. ‘Circumcision brothers’- we went through the passage together and ‘foreskin’ buried years later, the experience is a bond that lives on in us forever.
8. First raya open house for this year and for my katherine. It was a crazy bunch according to her as we played taboo and teased each other murderously =p but i assured her, we all love each other. I mean look at our portrait we are soo innocent…
