Twenty Seventh Day of Ramadan. Preparing For The Eid

O Allah, on this day, bestow on me the blessings of Laylatul Qadr, change my affairs from (being) difficult to (being) easy, accept my apologies, and decrease for me [my] sins and burdens, O the Compassionate with his righteous servants.

We've been fasting for twenty seven days! Raya (Eid) is beckoning!

You all prepared for the Eid? Done your shopping? Baked/bought your Raya cookies? Clean the house? 

It'll be a very low key Raya celebration for us. Like always.

Even the house cleaning was low key.
 No new curtains. Just washing up old curtains and hang them up again. ^^
Raimie's been a help. I learnt from experience not to be too fussy and over-bearing when asking my son to do chores. I used to hate it. A LOT!

I let him do his chores, check a bit and encouraged him but what I feel he was unable to do properly, I finish up later... No, I do not like to nag. I used to be nagged and scolded a lot and I swore to myself I won't ever do it to my kids. Nothing good comes from berating a kid when one wants to teach them life values and responsibilities. Not for chores, anyway. For studies... YES! ;p

Son's school already closes for the Raya holiday.

Mommy will be working up to the day before Raya. We'll probably head back to Mommy's hometown after work (Mommy only needs to work half-day on Raya eve) or the Raya morning itself, after spending the morning with Zaini's family. We'll see how it goes.

Aidilfitri hari kemaafan,
Menghapus kesalahan sesama insan,
Memupuk perpaduan sesama ehsan,
Mengikat tali keakraban.

  2. I always do that too. No new curtains but reuse it. Your boy has been a good help.

    Times flies and it's almost Raya. Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri!

    1. Aik? Sakit gigi ke? Takkan buat scaling je, sakit gigi? Anyways, hope nothing serious with your gigi! Jangan rongak! Bwahaha!!!

      Raimie is used to me not nagging. I don't nag but if he doesn't do what I asked him to, I will tell him how disappointed I am that he can't at least listen to his Mom. Lagi power. Hihihi

    2. Normally bila saya buat scaling, the toothache will go away, pagi esok je bole walk in coz arinih by appointment only siang - malam... Too many plagues I bet! @_@

    1. I may not nag but I can scold if I am annoyed. I don't take disrespectful behaviour lightly.

      But yeah, son is more worried if I merajuk than kena scold! :-P
