One For The Album

Family photo taken on Eid ul Fitr (Eid), a very joyous day; a true Thanksgiving Day for Muslims and to show their real joy for the health, strength and the opportunities of life, which Allah has given to them to fulfill their obligation of fasting and other good deeds during the blessed month of Ramadan.This year, it was on Thursday, Aug 9 for Muslims in Malaysia. Some countries celebrates it on Aug 10 (Friday).

We had a long weekend, as it's public holiday for us from Thursday till Sunday! Schools are closed for two weeks too. 

We had a massive spring cleaning done for the big day. I usually do it once before the start of the fasting month (Ramadan) and then before Eid.

Look what we found still kept pretty much intact by Raimie!
A collection of origami that Raimie learnt when we visited the kind Minoru-san and his lovely wife, two years ago. ^^
He still occasionally do them but I guess he loves his computer games more...
Haven't seen these in ages as they were stored away. He found them after our Eid spring cleaning and decided to play "shop" that night after we've done with our chores.

    2. Of course, yes. We'll visit Hokkaido next week. :D Can't wait to visit.

      My father's grave is near to my house. So it's easy to visit the grave.
