Assalamualaikum. Since Hari Raya is coming in 3 weeks time, I would like to play Hari Raya songs on my blog. This is to engender the mood of Hari Raya-ing. I am still thinking of planning a few things like breaking fast session with the ambulance peeps, Raya outing with YPS peeps, Raya outing with NBS peeps and a Raya mega outing with the ambulance peeps as this will be my last Hari Raya as a medic/NSF. Ahhh, Hari Raya Aidilfitri on Syawal 1429 Hijrah. I just cannot wait for it but at the same time, I feel sad that Ramadhan is leaving us soon. In the past, I do not understand the fact that people keep saying that Hari Raya is a day of victory and month of gatherings and forgiveness. I thought the gathering was just at a family level but it isnt. Now, I am a grown-up, I truly believe in it. Apart from the food, and the beautiful traditional clothes, I am also looking forward to all the gatherings. If we sincerely understand the meaning that lies behind Hari Raya Aidilfitri, we will be able to celebrate it in a more appropriate and a memorable way.
