My Eid Mubarak Wishes to all my Muslim friends and family!!
We had our 1st Shawal celebration yesterday. It marked the end of the fasting month of Ramadhan. Like most Eid Mubarak, we didn’t go back to our hometown for this great day (we however went back there 2 weeks ago, to beat the jam!).
Unlike the last few years, this time around we had a great celebration. Why? Because since 2006, this is the first time we managed to have EVERYONE in the family home!
To celebrate that, we had this family photo:
Well…. Different house, different chair (sofa this time), but the arrangement is still the same as the last (full-membered) family photo taken on the same day (1st Shawal 2006) exactly 6 years ago:
Last year we could have had a similar photo (Ayi came backfrom Canada just before Ramadhan) if it was not due to call for duty for Nuni, who had to work continuously 7-days a week for 3 weeks that included the first 2 weeks of Shawal .
If everything goes as planned, next year will see Nukman and Nafis (the two blokes standing on the right-most and left-most of the picture respectively) spending their Eid in France and USA .
So, we decided to enjoy this gathering to the fullest!!
