Selamat Hari Raya 6

Yesterday Wifey and I completed our 6th day of fasting during the month of Syawal. It's the first year we manage to complete it since we got married. I felt like doing it because I realized some old folks in the family are now unable to perform their fasting anymore due to their health condition. If we don't do it now, we might not know if we are able to do it next year around.

In a way this is our reason for not attending to your open houses, kenduri aqiqah, Deepavali celebrations and et cetera. Another good reason would be my parents organized a majlis tahlil arwah at their place yesterday plus a doa selamat for them if they are selected to go for Haj this year. They are now in the waiting list for some additional quota the Saudis are giving throughout the world.

Today is the last of Syawal. Hence there won't be any open houses anymore this coming weekend. I'm sure some of us have finished their stock of raya cookies. For those who just can't have enough of the Mocha Royale and Almond Delight, you may still inquire Wifey about this. Haha... promote untuk raya haji pulak!
