Eid Mubarak

In His name, most Gracious, most Merciful.

Alhamdulilah, all blessing is due to Him, syawal 1431H was celebrated in my motherland.
The atmosphere was a total culture shock after ten years of celebrating eid in a stranger's land (as the malay say it, raya diperantauan).

There's no doubt that tears flowed at the sound of praising the Almighty at each corner of the House. Heart trembles at His mercy, tears flows with thanks.

One thing I can say is that raya this year definitely did not belong to me or my siblings. The ten years tradition of making kuih, vacuuming the house, waking up early, taking family pictures, greeting people all day, cutting nasi impit, and washing dishes was all different this year.

Instead, syawal 1431H belonged to my parents, syukur alhamdulilah. To see them with their parents, laughing and joking around with their siblings, and catching up with long lost relatives, not a single picture could capture such moments.

And to all my readers, I would like to wish you a very happy Eid/Raya Aidilfitri :) Sorry, not a lot of pictures this year were taken... too busy catching up with the delicious pastries and food.
