Hari Raya story

Di Ipoh bersama sepupu
Casuarina Hotel ipoh
Vistana Hotel penang

my niece

hari raya dinner

hari raya breakfast at my inlaw house

Bila dah lama cuti rasa macam berkarat pulak otak.Dah sembilan hari aku tak berkomunikasi dalam bahasa inggeris dah rasa lidah makin keras , bila hari pertama bekerja kena masuk meeting nak present paper tetiba plak rasa macam dah tak boleh berkomunikasi dalam bahasa inggeris.Mungkin sebab dah terkena penangan ketupat sebab tu dah keras lidah nak berbahasa inggeris.

Actually my parent and my inlaws had moved to KL permanently , therefore technically speaking i don't have a kampung . For the first time in my life I celebrate hari raya in KL. It was horrible man!! , therefore on the second day of hari raya i had started my journey to my relative house in TAPAH , BRUAS , BOTA , PENANG , KEDAH and IPOH.For the first time also i had spend most of my hari raya time in hotel in PENANG(VISTANA HOTEL,by the way vistana hotel is just superb at RM230 per night and i highly recommend this hotel) and IPOH(casuarina hotel).Normally i spend most of my hari raya time watching TV at home but this time i feel it was more fulfilling as i had shared the spirit of Hari Raya with my relative,the hospitality that was shown by my relative during hari raya was just superb although i only met some of them once or twice in a year .All of them insist that i spend the night at their house rather than at the hotel but i had to politely decline as i really need the comfort and the serenity of a good hotel room to de-stress myself . Visiting them almost made me feel that i still have a kampung and that i will always welcome at their house.I will definitely do this again next year.

  3. So you dah menjelma fully ke kat dalam gambar kat your blog ni?

    It's true that Raya in KL, try as you may, it is just not the same as in the kampungs (which are not so kampung anymore, anyway). But I saw the children were so happy playing bunga apis, now children's joy is Raya.
