30 August 2011. The eve of Hari Raya was complete with an orchestra of Takbir Raya, fire cracker bangs and boms and the 10 nieces and nephews laughter and giggles as the background music. The sense of contentment and happiness was magical. We've completed a whole month of fasting and tomorrow, I shall wake up with the aromatic smell of golden roasted coffee!!! Yes.. Coffee.. oh coffee... Nothing beats the morning blues than a cup of hot nescafe. Only God knows how I survived every morning during fasting month without coffee.

Aaraf Armin, Kasih Iris Leona and Shazrai were so excited to play with fire cracker!!

They and 7 others were all under the supervision of Uncle Long Azhar Sulaiman. On second thought, I think all 9 of them were supervising Azhar Sulaiman whom was more excited to play fire cracker than the children.

Some of the children was at the Guard post supervising Azhar Sulaiman,

My sisters... they were hiding far away from the fire crackers

We all went to performed the sunnah Aidilfitri prayer at Masjid Alhidayah, the new mosque at Sungai Penchala. During the sermon, the Ustaz reminded us all to only eat 1/3 of the stomach. Aiseyman...
