Raya Oh Raya

We've entered the 14th day of Syawal. It has been two weeks we celebrating Aidilfitri. Normally the excitement has lessen towards the end. However, there is one thing we look forward to - open houses. Foods and more foods. Malaysians love to eat! Hehe.. That is why we always heard, some people gain 5KG after one week of Raya. Too much rendang, lemang, ketupat and other variety of foods.

It's not too late for me to update about my raya celebration this year. Although some had finished updating their 10th day of raya event, I slowly move like snail to update it. Work has not been kind to me last week.

First day of raya I was at MIL house. The whole day we went to MFIL side, until late evening. Tiring, yet exciting visiting new additional family members. And the most excited of all was of course kiddo. He's been given much 'angpow' this year.

The second day of raya, we started our journey at 10am back to Perak. This year my father celebrated raya with his family side. And this was the first time, Mr. Fruitheart stepped to Karai, Kuala Kangsar, Perak. :D Almaklumlah, orang bandar. Kampung tak ade.

Traffic was not so bad, but there were long queue at certain spots. We reached Mak Long's house around 4pm. Sampai terus makan BBQ. We were so hungry, had not eaten lunch yet. It was really fun having everyone. We slept in the middle of the hall like we used to during our childhood time, when both my Atok and Opah were still alive. Late night chit chat with my cousins. Some of their kids were already 20 years old. Oh Emm G! Soon, if they are married I'm going to be a grandma! Noooooooooooooooo! I'm way too young for that.

No traditional clothes on the third day of Raya
The next day, we drove off to Penang. My childhood friends aka my BFF got married. Finally! Her reception was at night. We were there until Saturday where we had another wedding invitation. My sister in law sister. Lots of wedding invitations during this raya holiday.

The beautiful bride
We have not been to any of our friends house yet (eh do we have any invitation?). I tried to call my other BFF, but she seems to be busy not picking up my calls. Hmm.. Oh well, maybe we just go to my relatives house then. Or just stay at home, watching ASTRO raya movies or watch a movie.

P/S: We watched Cars 2 on the fourth of raya.
