Coretan Aildilfitri-Kedah

Dua budak perasan cute dengan spek hitam..Hadif bergaya dgn Kakak punya, Sufiya pulak dgn spek abah...just before we left for Aloq Staq...during my time, there was no car, no long journey trip for raya..but riding bas Mara from Aloq Staq to Kuala Sala tengah panaih lit-lit was not an easy ride...spek hitam jangan mimpi la masa tu...

Clear blue sky with pure white fluffy cloud complete the photo..its feels good going back to a kampung..anytime.....




I miss going to our old madrasah for solat Aidilfitri..back then it was so serene on that glorious morning with many familiar and unfamiliar faces, I love going down the spiral concrete staircase and catching up with people that we only met twice a year...and sometime it rain on that Syawal morning and the air was fresh and it was a different kind of feeling seeing drops of water on hibiscus leaves from the garden...





Excited big sister on the first day of Syawal...when I was a kid, the best part of raya was always 'pi kutip duit raya' session, back then it was only dua kupang but there was one generous Arab family who lived nearby who gave us one ringgit..it was really big for us, their house was full of rich colour with lights everywhere, lights that was actually a chandelier...it was a strange sight for us who only knew 'lampu kalimantang' and 'mentol'...that was it, other than that was a strange thing :-P




We had a hard time with Hadif who just want to be with us..taknak berenggang, I just tried my skill in preparing / balut ketupat..baru satu, he started crying and I had to abandoned that first attempt with ketupat palas...looks like the skill could only be sharpened in next few years..makan nasi impit je la...

Hi Sue, love the first pic. Your kids look real kool.
Wait till they grow older, nak pakai designer ones, ha ha.
Enjoyed looking at your Raya pics, very nice.
And nothing like being back to the kampong...clean air, good home cooking, add some mosquitos, mandi ke perigi at 6am, ha ha.
Have fun and keep well, Sue, Lee.
