First Day of Syawal. It's Eid! It's Raya!

O Allah! Bless us in the day of our Eid and our fast breaking and let it be the best day that has passed over us.
Here's a directly translated from Malay to English pantun  :

Has been a year
It comes again
Selamat Hari Raya
Maaf zahir batin

Mount Daik branches got three
Pandan Island is far in the middle
With friends, relatives and family
Hari Raya is the time to mingle

If your garden has a hot spring
May I take a dip, please?
Balik kampung take care no speeding
Unless you want to give bonus to the police

Push wood, pull wood
Keranji fruit inside a boat
Hari Raya got lots of food
But don't eat too much like a goat

Two three cats run run
Where got the same as the striped one
That's all from me, I gotta run
Duit raya? Where got one???!!!

Maaf zahir batin.

and thanks to Azril from GC for sharing the awesome pantuns. :-)

    Dua tiga kucing berlari
    Mana nak sama Bunny berjogging
    Sepanjang satu minggu Aidilfitri
    Adakah diri ini rajin berblogging

    Anak kambing tercekik ketupat
    Tercekik ketupat ketika beraya
    Sebulan Raya terasa cepat
    Jemput2la kita andai ada rumah terbuka ya ;p
