So my first Eid overseas. Hooray? Hooray.
Raya and food are synonymous. Fo shizzle.
So food was a non-issue.
We got to eat good food.
We got to eat Malaysian food.
We got to eat not-so-Malaysian food too. Yum-yum. Alhamdulillah.
Raya is also about the people you spend it with. At least it is for me.
I spent it with plenty of good company.
Some Malaysian families were kind enough to invite us to their houses for Raya.
The atmosphere was great. Everyone knew (almost) everyone else.
Hanging out while enjoying good food.
Here's one at the Sydney Malaysian Hall with cohort-mates.
With the Patricianz (house-mates) after Eid prayers.
And going to class straight after.
A very late Selamat Hari Raya to everyone. Maaf zahir dan batin. May all of your Rayas be blessed and filled with happiness. Remember all the lessons learned from Ramadhan and may the good habits fostered during the previous month carry on to the rest of your days.
May peace be upon all of you.
