Assalamualaikum! Selamat menyambut Hari Raya Aidil Adha! How was your (all of you out there) Aidil Adha? As for me and family, we did the normal things that we do almost every Hari Raya Aidil Adha. The night before I cooked some food meant for the morning breakfast. I got up early to prepare for more food meant for lunch. Then we had small breakfast and quickly dressed up for the Mosque. Then we did the Aidil Adha prayers. I was surprised that todays sermon by the Imam was more 'daring' than ever before(if you understand what I mean). So I nudged the Imam's wife who happened to sit beside me.(He, He, he)
We came back from mosque, we had some Raya food. As her usual practise, my kind neighbour gave a tray and bowls of her special Raya menu. (How lucky we are to have her as our neighbour!) So we ate her delicious nasi beriyani and the accompanying lauk-pauk.
After that my husband and my son went to help people at the surau to cut the korban meat. Later one of the surau committee came to deliver about 1 kilo of the korban meat.
Then my brother and her family came over and we ate more food. My sister in law brought me a beautiful cake (lucky me!)
Later a special guest visited us and we accompanied her to eat the laksa I specilly cooked for her. Then my sister in law (husband's sister) came over and brought more food (people say, murah rezeki, Alhamdulillah!).
To cut long story short, as I am typing this I am so full and bloated. Alhamdulillah, all went well for today's Hari Raya Aidil Adha. Hope yours (all of you out there) went well too. At the same time I remember my 2 daughters far away overseas, Yanna in Cairo and Lia in Jordan. I hope they enjoyed their Aidil Adha too with their friends over there! Eid Mubarak!
