EID MUBARAK / SELAMAT HARI RAYA my lovelies! Please forgive me if I've hurt or offended you in this blog. Yes, I'm human and I make mistakes. Lots of them. I hope you are all enjoying your time with your loved ones. Truthfully, I'm sad Ramadhan is over. I feel like it came and went too soon but alhamdulillah, isn't it great that we were able to experience another Ramadhan? May Allah swt accept our good deeds and allow us to embody the spirit of Ramadhan for the months and years to come inshaa Allah.
Preparing for Eid ul Fitri (Hari Raya Aidilfitri) is a lot of work in Malaysia and I forgot that as the last time I celebrated Eid here was in 2007. What do I mean by a lot of work? If you didn't know, Eid is celebrated for an entire month in Malaysia and we invite people to our home for a month. Yes, Eid ul Fitr is a very big deal here! And Eid (Hari Raya) clothes are a big part of this annual celebration. It is tradition for Eid clothes to be custom-made but it is common for people to buy ready-made Eid outfits these days. I personally wanted to be simple this year and the lovely Chloe Idris suggested that I should post some pictures for you guys... et voilà!
Day One: Abaya-like dress by Rimba in eggshell
Day Two: Traditional Malay kebaya in rust and SugarScarf's hijab (love their hijabs!)
One of my Eid shoes this year and I totally adore 'em! This one is from Charles & Keith.
To Malaysians, I hope you'll enjoy the rest of Hari Raya. Just don't overdose on rendang and yummy cookies okay? ;) To everyone, hope your Eid was amazing and I pray we will live to receive the blessings and mercy of another Ramadhan, inshaa Allah.
