Aidilfitri in Perth

This year, 1432H marked our first year celebrating Eidul-Fitri in Perth, Alhamdulillah. Not much preparation though, since the Raya mood were not there until the first day of Eid Fitr! In Perth, although we stay quite close and in the same area, some of us were celebrating their 1st Syawal on Wednesday, depending on which mosque/method that they use. Weird? Yup. But, this is quite common especially if you were outside Malaysia/Saudi where the 1st Syawal has been set and agreed for the whole country.

For us, the 1st Syawal was just another day. Sounds sad, isn't it. Hehe..We've spent the morning itself at the Licensing Centre as hubby's having his driving test. Alhamdulillah, rezeki Syawal- he also passed! Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. Then, we went back home and out again to send hubby to the train station. Yup, he's working! He took half day off just for the test. Then, barulah mood Raya coming. Went for grocerres shopping- beef, etc. Kelakar sungguh! Alhamdulillah, the Halal shop still opens. Kalau kat Malaysia, sah2 lah kedai banyak tutup and last minute shopping sure takdapat apa.

As soon as we're back home, mulalah 'berperang' kat dapur while Maryam and I 'skype'ing with family in Malaysia. They, as usual pun beraya kat rumah sahaja. Itulah nasib beraya tanpa kampung halaman. Since my closest Malaysian neighbour is still fasting on Tues, so we decided to give some of our Raya dishes yang tak seberapa for their iftar. Alhamdulillah =) We made the usual Raya dishes; nasi minyak, nasi impit, kuah kacang and beef rendang.
