Eid (Hari Raya) is approaching fast. In 4 or 5 days time Muslims the world over will celebrate Eid, marking their successful Ramadhan fasting.
This is the time of joy. Everybody is busy preparing for that day. Shopping is the name of the game for my wife and children, daughters in particular. My wife and Amalia did it with style. They shopped for new dresses at Alamanda, Putrajaya.
Being the youngest in the family, Amalia is very lucky. She bought dresses and shoes worth almost six hundreds! "Raya sakan Iya tahun ini," she told her brothers. Yes, indeed this year is her best year in term of Hari Raya shopping. It is understandable as Diyana is doing her own shopping for the first time...she is now a lawyer.
Amalia is fast becoming brand conscious...just like her sister. Nicole, Esprit and Bum, just to name a few, are her favourites. We enjoy secretly watching her trying her new baju kurung and shirt.
Syazwan in Ipoh was also busy shopping for his shirts...boys being boys, he just chose t-shirts and jeans.
Syafiq on the other hand, complained that he has not bought anything so far.
My wife has no qualms...she has bought a few pairs of baju kurung already.
As for our house, soon it will get its new bathroom door. The old wooden door is going to be replaced by a new modern looking fibre door.
The old rusty green gate has already been painted with fresh antique ICI paint. The three of us, that is my wife, Amalia and I were responsible for rejuvenating our old gate.
Two goats, a few organic chickens and jelawat fish are coming soon. They are for our Eid feast. We are planning to have chevon beriyani for Hari Raya.
Diayan and Syazwan are coming home tomorrow in Diyana's new Toyota Vios.
Syafiq is coming back only on the second Hari Raya.
Soon, our house will be full of lives again!
We are looking forward for this year's Hari Raya.
