Ok, sila paham yang saya tengah bosan kat office. Since day-1 masuk office kejenya asyik membege2 laptop and spring cleaning apa2 yang patut.
I sooo need a 1-tera external harddrive *wishful thinking*
Raya was fun! As always laa.. Got back to Rembau on the afternoon before, tolong2 apa yang patut. Pagi Raya kat Rembau. Pergi solat sunat Aidilifitri dengan Wan and then balik untuk salam2. As usual my family je yang tak geti nak dramatik2 ni. Nampak sangat masing2 takde dosa ngan masing2 tu yang tak geti nak nangis. I cried seeing people cry adalah..hehe
Trust me, we didn’t get the ‘this-year-sila-pakai-baju-kaler-hijau-for-Raya’ memo🙂
Foods… (I hoarded vast amount of saliva in my mouth just by typing this) were heavenly. Well, of course.
Wan’s lemang, rendang daging kerbau (I dah makan 2-3 round baru tau it was KERBAU!-tak kisahla tapi macam seriau je eating that big ugly thing), Mak’s lodeh (originated from Muar), Induk’s kuah kacang ayam (originated from Kuala Selangor-her inlaw), Mak Teh’s rendang ayam, nasi impit and feel free to continue the list coz basically everything that’s on Raya menu were on my kampung table the other day🙂
There were two times I took the laxatives, due to the constipation. Like, literally took ok.
the cucus. my sibling are in blue. two of them are my big brothers and another one is younger brother, who is big by the way ;)
Then beraya rumah jiran2 Wan (whom I have no idea who there were tapi ikut jela coz dreaded nak dok umah sorang2) and later petang gerak pergi Muar. Before, singgah Atuk and my bornstill sister’s grave (had it she lived, she’d be 25 this year and I would HAVE a sister!). Sampai2 je Muar pergi Atuk perempuan’s grave. Tak lupa sedekahkan Yasin for them all. Al-Fatihah~~
Balik Muar, salam my grandfather (who turns 91 this year) who hardly recognized me, but that’s okay sebab basically semua orang pun dia tak kenal! Was so surprised to see my cousin Sarah yang balik cuti dari Jordan, rasa dah banyak tahun tak jumpa dia (I have this wicked thought at the back of my mind that my cousin Sarah has turned into super-alim girl there, and I have to watch my mouth when I’m around her, but turned out that she’s half crazy as all of us!). The only missing in the clan is my cousin Azy who’s a doctor now in Dublin. Rindu sangat old times with them..Masa we all kecik2 dulu, and while Atuk perempuan is still alive.. I missed her asam pedas the most..
Then beraya rumah Mak Ngah dekat situ2 jugak..Me, Sarah and Safura (working in JKR Putrajaya now) dok borak2 je tak habis like nobody’s business (yela, whole year of story to catch-up!). We were planning to hit Genting soon before Sarah going back to Jordan, she’s doing her practical here in Hospital Kajang for two months..
After that moved on to Rembau balik. Haha, what a hectic Raya day.
Second day Raya, petang, I’m already on my bed at home updating Raya pics in FB.
Third day, jalan2 Alamanda with mum and brother.
Fourth day, enough said. Office calling. (Yes, I’m not a hardcore Raya-er like you guys!)
Btw, who wants to taste some homemade choc chip cookies (Famous Amos kalah, ok!), kek lapis cadbury, cheesecake ke, cupcakes or brownies, feel free to come to my house and do text before that so I can make some preparation!
