Today is the last Friday before Eidil Fitri of which it was supposed to fall on either the coming Sunday or Monday.
Malaysia, unlike some other Muslim countries, relies on calculation (hisab) and sighting of the moon (rukyah) to determine the day of Eidil Fitri. So, if the calculation is right, then this year’s Eidil Fitri will fall on this coming Sunday.
The Teenager and I had decided to look for some festive cookies at AMCorp Mall by afternoon and we were delighted to get our favourites. These traditional cookies such as kuih bangkit, biskut suji are mostly sold during festive seasons like this. I simply look forward to eating the lemang and ketupat with my favourite rendang daging.
Old Hari Raya songs somehow sounded so much better than the new ones that play on the radio, at least to my ears.
Unfortunately, George will be away for this year’s Eidil Fitri although we have made some plans later to make up for this.
This year, George and I had gotten The Teenager a lovely pair of blue kebaya for her Eidil Fitri attire. She was commenting that for next year the theme colour of the family attire would be black. Both husband and daughter love black so I guess I am outnumbered.
