What is there to say about this raya?
We went to visit our late mom's grave on Friday, 2 days earlier cause it's impossible to go to Samariang area during the first day of syawal what with the massive traffic jam there during that time. Then I got red eye (my left eye) apparently due to a bacterial infection aka conjunctivitis. Went to Normah Medical Specialist Centre. Poor thing, that's what the nurses told me, how then am I going to take my raya photos ;) Luckily it subsided with eye drops and ointment. Of course then there was Erwin's high fever on the second day of raya. Alhamdulillah he recovered the very next day.
As they say, mcm mcm ada ;P
One the 1st day of Syawal, we had our favourite popia for breakfast with hot tea and ate tremendous amount of soto throughout the day (which is my sister's specialty).
Noon time I went to my in law's place, gave raya angpow to Emir's cousins and Salam raya with erwin's parents and brothers and my sister in law (with compulsory raya tears of course). This time around raya is even livelier cause Emir who's almost 1 year and 7 months can join in the festivity and play with his 2yr10 month old cousin, Shaerman and his 1yr9 month old sister, Suszainne.
In the afternoon went to my friend, Ellyn's open house at her new house and saw little baby Qaisara Khadijah who is now 7 months old and cuteness cuteness!!!
Later that night we went to visit Erwin's grandmother (on his mom's side). She took care of me during my confinement and took care of Emir when I didn't have any clue how to take care of my new born baby.
We came home roughly around 1130-ish after we visited 2 more houses (Mother in law's sister's place and Father in law's brother's place).
Could hardly lift a finger after that! And it is only the first day of raya!
