Raya Activities

Disclaimer : I cheated with the photos. Totally forgot to bring my camera during our Raya rounds (over at FIL's house & my hometown) so I've got no current photos. Those were previous year's photos.

Anyhow, this is how we usually celebrate our Raya. Usually.

Didn't do much this year so this year's Raya is a bit quiet for us.
 A visit to loved ones graves
Visiting relatives' and neighbours' homes and enjoying lots and I means lots of Raya goodies. I have yet check my weight after three days' of Raya but last year I managed to gain 3kg after Raya, replacing the 2kg I lost for the whole month of Ramadhan! @.@
 Raimie got to play with "bunga api".
and my parents' house will be filled to the brim with our relatives coming to visit too!

My younger brother's dodol; which he & his friends toiled over for 12 hours, was a hit. Pity I didn't took any back to KL. Huuu...

How was your Raya?

    PS: That last photo reminds me of Christmas in SA and New Year in Japan, when we have big family gatherings.

    1. For us, Raya means not only gatherings of family members. For us kampung people, it includes neighbours too!

      Full house all the time for the 1st week of Raya.

      For city folks, we do "open house" instead. We fixed a date when we invite family, friends and colleagues to come and eat Raya goodies.
