Selamat Hari Raya to all my Muslim friends!


Here I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my Muslim friends, Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri! May this Raya comes with full of love, peace and prosperity…

Balik kampung…oh,oh,oh…balik kampung…it’s a very famous tradition for majority of the Malays here in Malaysia to return to their hometown to celebrate this very big occasion together with their older family members back in village. It’s a good tradition. I believe it must be quite a good atmosphere having to celebrate Raya in ‘kampung’ (stands for village) environment which is much more friendly, happening and harmonious. But the journey back to hometown must be quite troublesome due to inevitable traffic congestion on highways caused as many people would be driving back also around the same time. May you have a pleasant and safe drive home.

Well, it’s also a good time to take a break from works and the busy city life, and to get ample of rest while enjoying the precious time with family, relatives and friends. For the other Malaysians not celebrating (like me, a Chinese), we would take this opportunity to send warmest greeting to our Muslim friends, visiting Raya bazaar or to attend open house if invited. If not, then we would still fill up this break with leisure activities, or even going for travel. Forget about work at this moment. Let’s give ourselves a rest! Even I can also feel the festive mood of this Raya celebration now as I heard multiple fireworks explosion everywhere from my home.

Muslims finally ended their fasting month and there arrived the first day of Hari Raya celebration for them today. May you enjoy this Raya festival to the max! Many would be taking a break this whole week long eventhough the public holidays only fall on Monday and Tuesday. Who doesn’t want to take this opportunity to take longer break right? But for me, I would be getting back to work this Wednesday. Hope that these few days wouldn’t pass quick. I believe most would think like mine too. Happy Holiday to everyone!

Last but not least, I wish to send my greeting once again to all Muslims around the world, particularly Malaysians; Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri for the year 2012! Maaf Zahir Batin…
