Selamat Hari Raya

Hubby and the kids are still at my in-laws. I came back early because I had classes yesterday. Ngengngengngeng....

Raya was tiring but fun. Here's us on the first day of Raya at my in-laws. Here are the girls in the baju kurungs my MIL made for them. How cute is Daria?!We had arrived at my in laws a day before raya. I had time to buy new shoes..hehehehe. My MIL cooked up a storm; both chicken and beef rendang, plus 60 ketupats. On the 1st day, we all headed to my MIL's sister's house where everyone was there. The girls had great fun playing with their cousins. And got lots of duit raya.

After Friday prayers, we headed back to Muar to visit my FIL's brother. We stayed for dinner (where I stuffed myself with more rendang). We then went to my MIL's older brother's house and stayed until midnight. Surprisingly Daria was still energetic and she didn't fuss eventhough it was waaaayyyy past her bedtime.

On the 2nd day, we went to my MIL's sister's house in Ayer Keroh. We had lunch (more rendang!!) then headed back to my parent's house. Only my dad and my brothers (minus my married brother) were there. My mom had gone out shopping with her sister. Cet! We stayed until after Maghrib then headed back home. I had tons of laundry to do!!

The next day, we went to Keramat to visit my grandparents. My cousins from Melaka were there so the girls had fun. My mom and brothers came down also. There was so much food, I couldn't stop stuffing myself. We stayed until 8pm then headed back home.

On the 4th day of raya, we headed back to my dad's hometown. We 1st went to Batu Pahat (Hi Jojet!) to pick up my aunt and uncle, then to Yong Peng and then Segamat. By the time we arrived at Cha'ah (our sleeping port for 2 nights), we were all lemau!! Hehehe..

The next day, we went back to Kratong to visit my uncle. I love going there because my aunt would always cook exotic animals for us like ayam hutan (exotic kah?), porcupine or deer. This year was kind of a let down (only chicken....and more beef)...but they also had nice!! Dania loves lala so she ate plenty.

Yesterday was time for us to head back to KL before the traffic jam starts. We stopped by at my in-laws for lunch then I hitched a ride with my brothers back home. Hubby and the kids are staying there until tomorrow.

Like I said, raya was fun but tiring.

I'm so tired....but happy. Happy Raya everyone!!
