Dua Syawal @ Ipoh

i was born and bred in ipoh. i go to school from standard 1 to 5 in ipoh. my first job was in ipoh. and my abah is still staying in ipoh. so to ipoh we go on the second day of syawal.



my younger sisters syida and azi were already there. they balik kampung using the new ETS (electric train services) from kl sentral to ipoh in 2 hours, exactly – without the hustle and worries of traffic jam during the festive season.

yong’s house is just 15 minutes away, so she just dropped by when i came. like me, syima also spend her first raya with the in-laws, and we were just waiting for her to come back to complete the picture.

here, khaleef and kahfi hung out with cousins abang haiqal and abang haqeem, as well as the girls sufya and nuna. yes – my abah has nine cucu and this raya – they too had a little reunion!



the picture below is undoubtly one of the cutest pictures for this 2010 raya! though kahfi was still the wriggling worm, khaleef was just eager to be part of the picture. will miss my nephews and nieces when i’m back in dubai…

as usual, the pulau tiga clan will also make abah’s home one of their must-beraya destination. it’s abah’s siblings – all 6 of them (7, if you include abah) were there. i was quite happy as i haven’t seen some of them for so long!

i didn’t even recognize some of my cousins! because the last time i saw them, they were khaleef’s age – and now that they’re all grown up workin and college-goin – i hardly recognize anyone!

should seriously considering a proper chart of family tree – with latest pictures, full names and whereabouts!



abah’s siblings standing from left : makchu, makcho, makyang, maknyah, abah, pak huri and pakcik kudus. my abah is pakcik podin.



how’s your raya so far? reunited with any relatives you haven’t seen in awhile?
