Hari Raya Aidilfitri – Morning
Life begin with sunat Aidilfitri bath.Then prepared for Aidilfitri prayer about 7.50 – 8.30 am in the morning. After that we’re went home to have our hari raya treat like lontong with kuah lodeh, lemang with rendang and ketupat. Usually we will have our blessing and ask for forgiveness from each other from the family. At the evening, we’ve went to our eldery like my father and mother to have a visit. The kids usually presented by ‘duit raya’ by their eldery. We’ve go to our belated graves in the afternoon. During Aidilfitri many people there to pray to their beloved one.
One of my problem is my stomach always full. Every houses visited will invited me to eat. It can cause for health problem. So for u out there, watch what you eat. Those with illness, control your diet. Happy Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
