This year raya seems to be a little different compared to my previous years. Firstly, I'm getting older. Which means, I don't get green packets anymore. Secondly, due to Hari Raya falls on Monday and most of us are back to school/work the very next day, I didn't get to meet most of my cousins. Thirdly, for the first time my family didn't do our yearly routine of visiting Geylang Bazaar on the eve of Hari Raya. That's because we're so caught up with our family business that we barely even had time to make any preparations for our home. Yeah, none of us actually bought our baju kurungs this year. Well, personally for me too, I felt that I don't really need to buy a new one. Afterall, Hari Raya isn't just about splurging so much, you see.
Back to my younger days, I used to not take the forgiving seriously. Me and my siblings would giggle and tease each other whenever we had to seek forgiveness from our parents. But I guess as we grow older, we're able to understand better the significance of seeking forgiveness, understanding and appreciating what our parents has done for us.
So, here's an entry full of Hari Raya pictures!
Not much photos taken as I didn't get to do much visitings this year. Back to my younger days, we're always excited to jalan raya with our friends, classmates, school friends. Now, everyone's all grown up and busy with own commitments, we hardly have time for a proper meet-up. Sadly :( Nevertheless, I managed to wrap up my Hari Raya with my Inglourious family last Sunday!
Look at how my boyfriend stand! Lol!
Till we meet again at the next post!
