Raya started well enough with me giving my MIL 3 kg of beef to make rendang the day before the Raya. So that i could concentrate on baking the cakes. Ms. hart, no cuti from the kitchen for me this time too. After delivering the cakes below, i went to Kuala Pilah to collect some lemangs from my sister. I had to thank my dear hubby and the boys for cleaning the house. ( i nih mmg tak reti mengemas actually he he). In the morning, the guys went to Eid prayer at Masjid Negeri in Seremban town. Then we gathered at my in laws house across the road for Raya morning feasting. Lemang, ketupat, nasi impit, etc etc.........on the table. Then as yearly routine since i got married 16 years ago, we drove up to KL. I just felt disgusted of the wastage i saw along the many road in Seremban town and the one on the way to the highway. Each lamp post had the MB face for Raya wishes. Isnt that a waste of the RM??
The highway was clear for us going to KL but look at the opposite direction. Thats the normal sight every year when we drove up to KL. My siblings and i had agreed to meet at my dad's resting place this time. The sight of my dad's serene white house, i just couldnt hold my tears. The heart felt so heavy and the tears were just pouring and pouring as though i just lost him that morning. Went to my mum resting place too. Abah, mak......I miss both of you very much..........al Fatihah...An hour later we lepak at my sister's place (the house where my dad stayed when he was around)....with my dad not around and the youngest brother not able to Raya with us , i felt a tinge of sadness this time. Whatever it is, feasting is a must.....we ate and ate and ate.....at about 6.00 pm, we left for Seremban and that was the first day of Raya for us this year.
