It is customary for family members to gather during Hari Raya and all my family members gathered after the morning prayer at my dad's house.. everybody except for Dr Ta, Wawa & shazrai were present. Ta, Wawa & shazrai were all in London celebrating only with kebab whilst we all had the best Nasi Dagang, chicken rendang, beef daging, kerang rendang, prawn curry, lamb rendang... etc etc etc.......

Gathering although customary but the spot light for the day was the food.

Of course, Hari Raya is also the time to seek forgiveness for past, present but not for future sins (if only that too is possible)... especially to dad & mum.. maaf zahir & batin.. used to lie alot during younger younger days.

The one & only darling Mom & Dad....

A big hug to the best Dad.. during high school, I regularly forged your signature to sign the report card when the result was not encouring.. Maaf Zahir & batin.

My Darling mother... when I was 15 years old, I broke your favorite vase at the old house and blame it on the maid , my thousand apology.. Maaf Zahir & batin.

....but of course, Hari Raya is also about posing..... Vanity is not just with girls......

but girls.. yaaa.. surely vain especially on the hari lebaran.. some really become lebar.

We had also visited our great grandmother... she should be... 105 years old now?

There are now 5 living generations... (see picture below) My Great Grandmother, her eldest daughter (my grandmother! she passed away but her brother, my grand uncle is still alive), her eldest grand daughter (my Mom), her eldest great grand daughter (my sister- Chempaka) and her eldest 'great great' grand daughter, kasih (Chempaka's daughter)...

I pray she will be around for the next hari raya... but thats what Raya is all about.. gatherings, gatherings and gatherings... visitations after visitations... food and food... and posing and pose and pose................ speaking of which, I had to post 1 last picture.. the photographer that was responsible for all this pictures, my sister EMI... otherwise, my picture may be extinct in all future functions.

There.. the credit goes to EMI for all the pictures posted (the young one in the middle).. She is my only sister that is not married.... anybody interested, can email to me the CV... but she doesnt cook!

Last but not least... there is only a few thousand pictures taken on the 1st day Raya, will post other pictures soon... now, need to bring Aaraf to collect more ang paws.

Stay Tune.......

There is no better birthday gift for a father whom already have everything from love, jeweleries, cars and wealth but a nice short autobiography blog to say that he is always being remembered, we are very proud of him and also for his next many generations to remember him by.

His full name is PAHAMIN ABDUL RAJAB. The 3rd in a sibling of 5; the eldest is a sister Bidah binti Abdul Razak, then Allahyarham Mahadi Abdul Razak (picture on right), Datuk Noordin Abdul Razak, my father and Hashim Abdul Razak.

Looking for a reliable car workshop is not an easy feat in Malaysia. Many car workshops are known for overcharging and providing poor quality parts.
Image via Auto World Remember the last time you were overcharged for a repair? Yeah, me too.
The good news is you don't have to fret anymore! Car Bengkel, a local app set up in collaboration with the Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI), aims to help motorists survive this ultimate road challenge.
