Alhamdulillah, the holy month of Ramadhan is coming nearer and nearer to us. May we live to see it and be able to immerse ourselves in it as well. Insya’Allah!
The family chat channel has been buzz’in more actively recently … from the beginning of May till now … so many things to talk and discuss hahaha….
Plans such as where and which date to choose for the family iftar and family outing right after the Eid are in the making.
For the iftar, this year we decided to have it outside …. thinking of going for a buffet spread instead of the usual home cook meals. We are trying out for a different ambiance.
This year, insya’Allah our eldest sister and BIL from Brunei will be joining us for the Eid celebration and the family outing. In fact, the family outing is being plan during that period due to them cos we want them to be able to join us. A bit rush and constraint cos it clash with the Eid celebration but we are going ahead with it cos its rare for us to have our eldest sister joining us in such matters.
I know my Eid will not be hectic or busy since this year the N level oral examination will start on the 2nd day of Eid … what timing! kesian bebudak, nak beraya pun tak semangat huhu
So looks like first day of Eid, our family will most probably get together meeting up with my eldest sister, gathering together because to us, our eldest sister has always been regarded as a replacement for our late parents. So it is natural and automatic that we will all gather where she will be.
As for the family raya outing to visit our relatives will most likely be on the first Saturday of Syawal instead. Like the previous 2 years, we will be hiring a mini bus to accommodate our whole extended families. It’s convenient, cheaper and more fun to ride together. 🙂
Oohh and yes … Happy Mothers’ Day!
My eldest daughter surprised me with a gift … A new wallet and coin purse 😄
Very timely too cos the present wallet is in bad condition (pix below). The wallet below was a gift from her to me too and after noticing how bad it looks, she had taken the initiative to replace a new one 😉
The other two younger gals treated me to bite of chocolates and over the top kindness … which is rare believe me! hahahaa….
Tomorrow is Monday and so begins a new week and the last of the exam week for the secondary school girls and the beginning of vacation period for us at work 🙂
