The First Day Of Raya

We started our celebration of Hari Raya (Eid) from our home in Balakong and made our first stop to my father-in-law's house before heading off to my hometown in Raub. I was pretty relaxed this year because we opted not to cook and invite Zaini's siblings to our house like we did all these year and I get to spend the first Raya in Raub! Otherwise I'll be spending the whole night before the morning of Raya in the kitchen cooking and preparing the raya feast.
Raimie with his grandad. He is pretty pampered by his grandad and can even get away being naughty most of the time.
Arriving my parents home, it was time to greet everyone and have a family photo session. We weren't in the family photo last year, and this year it was my 3rd sis and her family that weren't in. She spent the Raya with her in-laws in Sarawak.
Raimie had the honour cutting the "Raya" cake. After enjoying the raya goodies, we made our way to my mom's kampung in Semantan.
Our first stop in Semantan was our Wan's (grandmother) grave.
Then, stopping at a few relatives house and enjoying the good food - lemang, rendang, nasi impit, laksa. Yummy! This is the time to meet relatives we won't be meeting at other times too. 
 Then, later that night, our house was filled with visiting relatives. It was havoc, it was noisy and it was fun!
For Raimie, it was fun for him to get the duit raya! Rather good collection this year too! *^-^*
