Eid Ul-Fitr 2009.

20.09.2009

This may not be the best Raya of all, but I did enjoy my Syawal in my own ways. Alhamdulillah, I still got the very best in moderation.

I chose to work on the 3 days public holidays. I guess I could use some extra cash from the triple pay. Alhamdulillah, I worked night shift on these 3 days. So, I could use the day time to celebrate Raya with my family and friends.

I drove to kampung that very morning of Raya itself at 5am. Listening (and singing) to Sudirman's Balik Kampung song joyous my heart. The 1 and 1/2 hours journey wasn't feel that long anymore. I look forward to every each of seconds. I missed everyone. I missed my family. I missed the food. And I missed the smell of Eid. Arrived safely and my first pit-stop before headed home was the cemetery. I went back to KL on that day itself after Maghrib. The road was empty. KL itself was empty.

This Raya also made me experienced lotsa things, including to fit myself in last 5 years of clothing. I can't wear my newly-sewn-oversized baju kurung that I already prepared for the last 3 months. And shrinking to 4 sizes' less this last 2 months, I can't find any tailor that willing to sew me a decent baju kurung to wear on 1st Syawal ad hoc. So, I did wear the old one. And no one noticed! Yeay!

I had a short, blessed, meaningful Raya this year. Alhamdulillah. I hope you did too.

p/s: I'm sorry to know that someone didn't really enjoy his Raya. If I were the reason to it, I'm so sorry. Many people have so much 'stuff' and don't realize it. They have so much and always turn around and say, I wish I had this, I wish I had that and then, its gone. Only then, they finally realize what they have.

As,

My p/s always words to remind myself at that point of time. Glad that it somehow touched you and I hope it was in a good, better way.

I never thought that moderation suits me best. Alhamdulillah.

Thanks. Been thinking to put the 'sweetness' to permanent.

CAHAYA said...

suezensuzanna,

Yeah! Sangat2 empty. Nak merempit pun boleh. Pergi kerja Gombak ke Damansara 10 minit je. Fuyyoo!

Salam Aidilfitri. Enjoy the rest of Syawal.

Salam Syawal, hemy!

CAHAYA said...

Teja,

So far, sekali je ulang alik. Raya kedua duduk je kat umah, sleeping lepas balik keje. Raya ke 3 family dah balik dari kampung, so dah start raya kat orang2 tua di KL plak. Raya ke 4 dan 5 dah cuti, best2.

Now, raya ke 7. Bekerja. Rasanya next cuti 1hb kot. Huhu. Lamanya.

Jom gi rumah DrSam n Kak Maria nak?

Shima Ibrahim said...

I had a short, simple but sweet hari raya too! Raya ke-5 udah kembali bekerja. Tp xpe..raya has lost it's meaning when we get older..huhu

Anyways, selamat hari raya! Nanti jemput dtg rumah beraya..klau kite bt open house nnti kite jemput eh.. ;)

CAHAYA said...

Shima,

Glad that you enjoyed your Raya as much as I did. Nak kembali bekerja tu memang payah. Layu je bila hanya jasad kat ofis tapi otak dan hati di rumah. Hehe.

Meaning tetap ada. Tapi x semeriah dulu. Bahan letupan makin canggih. ;)

Okeh! Nanti mesti dtg punya. Salam Syawal.

DrSam said...

rumah sentiasa terbuka untuk kawan-kawan. Helo-helo dulu sebelum datang ye :)

Miss TeJa said...

CAHAYA said...

DrSam,

InsyaALLAH akan calling2 sebelum datang. Dan insyaALLAH tak sesat dah. Dah pro dah area tu. ;)

--------------------------------------------------

Teja,

Itulah, lagi best time raya ari tu kitorang gi jalan, tetamu yang tunggu kat umah. Haha.

Jom, planning betul2. Awak plan la schedule awak yer. Awak kan bz gitu. Akak ni time keje je bz.

i.am.belle said...

aku pakai bj raya last year. and people at work tot it was my new baju raya. cool xD

not cool > tailor tetap buat silap. cilakak depa :(

CAHAYA said...

i.am.belle,

kewl la tu. setakat ni takde orang tegur part baju raya tu. x sempat nak tegur kot sebab aku beraya kat kampung cuma 1 hari je. skang ni aku tgh pecah kepala nak pakai baju ape plak waktu kawen kezen aku next 2 weeks. nak bertema2 plak tu.

tailor aku pun selalu buat silap. kalau aku bagi deadline, betul plak dia buat. kalau bagi relax2, dia sendiri kaget dan rosakkan ukuran. ada 1 tahun tu lagi bodoh, baju ukuran aku, tangan ukuran akak aku. panjang dan slim! cesss!

yOnnA said...

hurm,ada org x enjoy raya sebab akak? oho,sounds comel hehe..

comelnyaaaaaaaaaaa akak pakai tudung! <3

CATZ said...

hi cahaya,

saya pun kalau boleh nak work on raya..hahaha..

:)

CAHAYA said...

yOnna,

Comel ke dia tak enjoy? Harap dia pun fikir macam tu. ;) lol.

Yonna, Akak mmg comel pun. ;) Hehe. (Sila muntah hijau sekarang.)

CAHAYA said...

CATZ,

Baju raya tahun bila ntah. Nasib takde orang perasan. Sebab diorang sebok hal cousin Cahaya nak kawen. So hal baju2 raya orang ni tak berapa nak perasan kot. Hehe.

Untung u ada baju lama yang masih belum pakai. I punya baju baru untuk raya semua tak boleh pakai. Kena setup satu online butik nak menjual baju2 baru yang belum sempat pakai. Huhu. :(

Catz beraya di perantauan kan? Best ke tak eh? Setengah orang cakap best. Setengah cakap tidak. Cahaya teringin gak sekali sekala beraya kat perantauan. Boleh nyanyi lagu 'Dendang Perantau' kan?

Raya sebulan Catz, ke masih tak sempat lagi? Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri dan Maaf Zahir Batin. ;)
