Raya 4 days away

Every year when Ramadhan starts hubby declares "I don't want to go back Taiping - every year it's the same, so boring". This year was no different. He wanted to go to Bandung, Kota Kinabalu, Singapore - naming all the places but his kampung. Then 2 days ago he said, "Ok, well go back lah, kesian Opah..." So I pick up the phone and dial the hotels wih fingers crossed. Thankfully, there are rooms for the eve and for the first few days of raya. He wants to leave on the eve along with ten thousand other Klang Valley folks. I pray the roads will be clear.

The routine is the same every year. We go to his Opah's house and eat breakfast then the men go for raya prayers. When they come back, we eat again and then go visiting. First is Tok Chik's house for ketupat palas and rendang. Next, Makcik Ida's house followed by a few more houses. By 4pm we will assemble at Opah's house for a bit then head back to our hotel room to change. After Maghrib back to Opah's for dinner and after that supervise the kids as they play with sparklers. So folks that is the drill. Let's go!
