Selamat Hari Raya Eidil-fitri...

“Be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can only be forgiven, not forgotten…”

(Hari Raya card from Hana to her mom and dad)

For the past three years, hubby and I have been celebrating Eid-fitri with my ailing parents in Melaka.

Being the first girl in the family I took the responsibility to be the host in my parent’s house. Our children and grandchildren came to be with us and stayed in a nearby chalet. With the assistance from my two sisters, Amah and Zai, we prepared ketupat, rendang, kuah kacang and kuah lodeh. Biscuts and cakes came from nephews and nieces who chipped in to make the raya festivity a merry and joyful occasion.

On the first and second day of raya we entertained friends and relatives from as far as KL and Johor who came to visit. On the third day hubby and I drove to Pontian to visit my besan and spent the weekend in Sara’s house in JB.

Ramadhan Charity Ride to Telok Rimba

"Your beliefs don't make you a better person, your behavior does..."

We joined the VOG gang for a charity ride to Telok Rimba, Johor.

There were more than 50 bikes joining the convoy. The convoy started from Masjid Nilai and later we met with other bikers from Melaka and Johor at Tangkak Tol Plaza. From there we rode towards Bukit Kangkar and gathered at Masjid Telok Rimba for iftar and solat jemaah with the villagers and children from the orphanage. They were presented with duit raya and goody bags.

After dinner, the bikers gang split ways and some of us rode to Melaka to have asam pedas supper before leaving for home.
