Eid Mubarak to everyone. We here in Oman celebrate Eid on 31st August which is a day later from some of the country in the world including Malaysia. If you ask me, any preparation? Well.. nothing much actually. Just a simple celebration.
We woke up in the morning excitedly as today is Raya. Made a few phone calls back to Malaysia. We put on our nice best clothes, gathered around to salam raya. Taking photos and talking about what are we going to do after this? Hehehhehe..
The kids especially are excited most because of duit raya. So bersemangat to salam raya..
I've started cooking from the night time. Rebus ketupat, rendang daging, acar buah and making sambal kacang. In the morning of Eid, I woke up early made nasi briyani ayam. I also made kek lapis and couple of biscuits.
We had our first guest after solat raya. A couple of bachelor guys who happened didn't go back for Raya. Meriah ah sikit rumah.. So good to see them here to share the joy with us.
Later on one Malaysian family came for Raya too. In the evening we went to the Malaysian Embassy for the Raya gathering. There were many actually who didn't go back for Raya especially non-muslim who work here. It's good to see and be with the crowd.
Well.. that's it our Eid. Though we don't do like we normally do back in Malaysia, but we still enjoy our Raya.
Selamat Hari Raya and Maaf Dzahir Batin to everyone.
