Just as previous years, pagi raya will be struggling to get all 3 kids ready while others go to the mosque…besides getting the kids ready, nk get the table set coz surely trus nk makan once the others smpai rumah from the mosque.
As some of you might know, hArith has the habit of picking his clothes by himself after every shower. Dont bother tell him wat to wear, coz he will ended up choosing on his own. Even the underwear he wants to choose which underwear goes with which clothes.
So after the shower, as usual he opened the drawer and wanted to pick his baju, i thought i had “brainwash” him about baju raya. He knows well which one is his baju raya and all. But that morning her refused to wear it. Fuh lukcy thing syauQi asked me to get the exact same outfit for uZAir so we can say “see, same like uzair”. At first i thought of getting a slightly different shade of burnt orange so we wont look cam beli kain satu kodi. He refused to wear his baju myu untill my father came down, coincidently wearing almost the same colour, thus i pointed out to him. He then agreed to wear the baju, when i wanted to put on his pants, he refused to wear. Die tak suke suar kain lembut2, nk kena khakis or jeans saje. I ended up switching on the tv, tunjuk org tgh takbir raya to show everyone was wearing baju myu. And finally he agreed. That was more than 3omins trying to convince him to wear his baju myu!
Bought their baju myu last minute, lucky thing found the right colour and size
One done, another 2 to handle. It took me sometime to get all 3 ready coz they hardly wear raya attire, thus refusing it. athirAh also refused to wear her kurung. Had to struggle with her too. And not to mention the struggle we had to comb her hair.
couldnt take a pic of athirAh coz she was running away from me. She could sense that we wanted to tie her hair.
Once sume dh balik frm mosque, we had a quick breakfast of ketupat, lemang and rendang before heading to my aunts hse in seksyen 14 PJ. We were there just for awhile coz the men nk rush for friday prayers and i need to go to my inlaws.
Oh we have a new saudara from America, a mualaf who just revert to Islam 2 months ago. He came to Malaysia to learn more on Islam. It was nice to hear what makes him accept Islam, he read a few phrase of the Quran translation and he said it was just impossible for any human being to write such words. He then started to learn more about Allah and accepted Islam. Alhamdulillah. We were more than happy to have him around for his very first Eid. He followed us around for visitings. He surely was amazed to see how we eat nonstop on hari raya…hihihi
By 12noon we were at syauqi’s parents. Am i not lucky our parents are nearby, mine in tmn tun and his in kota damansara 🙂
It was just impossible to take group photo. I finally gave up and put a new condition for a family photos; as long all are in the picture is good enuff, doesnt matter if they were looking at the camera or not…hihi
athirAh kept on running away. By the time i managed to get the other 2 boys with us, athirAh gone…ran away to watch tv…aiyoo
so ended up, just us…parents smile for the camera
(jgn tanye knp syauQi senyum camtu…die mmg instead of senyum die sengih…senyuman jadi senget)
Hope it is not too late to wish all of you Selamat Hari Raya, maaf zahir batin 😀
