11th year, 12th rayears~the 1st in Shah Alam.

Rayear has never been the reason for my living. i'll celebrate it when the time comes & of course it's a nice way to end the month of Ramadhan but to me that's about all to it. hence when i was studying in UK, for 4 rayas i didn't suffer any raya blues whatsoever... no doubt i cooked some ketupat bantal, kuah kacang & rendang  & even sate from scratch for the day but that's just to introduce rayear culture & food to my local friends / housemates then.

when i got married, unlike the majority of married couples who would suddenly forgot about how much they love each other for the last 10 or 11 months of the last hundred of years that they've been together just because they cannot agree whose kampung they should be celebrating it at that year, that,to me( as in in whose turn of kampung this year or next) has never been the subject to argue about. since i'm kinda have an oldschool kinda thinking...to me once married, as a wife i should spend the 1st day with the in laws. it sounded unfair but i don't mind that  (not that i don't care, of cos i do) i only visit me parents the day before raya or in the afternoon of 1st day raya or even the 2nd day for that matter. cos to me, as long as i get to see them regularly is Alhamdulillah.& my parents understood...for that i count my blessing.

this year however, due to some changes in circumstances, mehubby suggested that we should celebrate it at my parents in shah alam.... wow syahdunye!!! beraya in bandaraya shah alam for the very first time!!!  come to think of it, truth be told~we don't know how much longer we have time left with my parents. they've been unceremoniously frail for the last couple of years, to celebrate this rayear with them would mean a lot to them.

so here's the pics to share...
