Selamat Hari Raya!

It has been a very busy yet good day for me. It's Hari Raya Aidilfitri, the most important day for Muslims all over the world. In Malaysia, it's celebrated by having open houses for the hosts and going to different open houses for the visitors. They also have "duit raya" or "raya money" to give away, but that only comes from married persons. I miss Selena especially on this day because she was here last year during Hari Raya.

Woke up at 12:30PM today to prepare. At 1PM, we left the hotel. I followed my friend Jeffrey on his car with some of the staff of the lobby lounge, while Marlou followed Nanay Susana. We went to the open house of our "Papa" Jamal and family in Subang. Ate a lot of Malay food, all spicy! Went back to the hotel at 5PM with our friend Edlyn. We rested for a while before I prepared for work. Edlyn went back before we started our first set.

Our Thursday night was good, guess because it was the Hari Raya evening. Guests enjoyed in their seats until 12:45AM.

After work, our friends from Concorde dropped by in the room and we chatted until 7AM. We shared funny stories while we ate pizza & some Raya food we took home from Papa Jamal's open house.

It's Friday afternoon now... hope tonight will be good...
