There were only thrice in my 36 years that the Hari Raya was celebrated without the parent. Twice during the undergraduate years and today. This year Hari Raya was different when father had to be in California, United State of America and mother in London with Dr Teratai Edithy Pahamin, Shazrul Azwa Asaari & Rose Emini Pahamin.

In their absent, Chempaka Emalin Pahamin & Azhar Sulaiman played host on Hari Raya morning to the leftover of the Pahamins at Bustanu. Mum would be proud to know that Chempaka Emalin Pahamin did a good job. After the Hari Raya prayer, we all gathered at Chempaka's house for FOOD!! and there were varieties for everybody...

Food were readily served even before the host was ready to eat....

There were 2 paparazzis.. both with CANON G11!!!

Mohamed Rhiza Ghazi with G11...

    Anyway, awesome raya with da gang. I missed it! (Kelik kkapung sokmo).

  2. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
