The Feelings of Ramadhan and "Aidil Fitri" To Come
All the muslims around the globe are getting into the final one third stage of the holy fasting month of Ramadhan. In about ten more days, they will celebrate Eidul Fitri or Hari Raya Puasa. Shopping for new cloth and wears is very common especially in Malaysia to celebrate the first Syawal.
GiLoCatur was among the shoppers in a very popular clothing store in Sungai Besar as per in the above picture. They were choosing and picking their favourite cloth and attire to be worn during the coming Eidul Fitri. GiLoCatur and family had completed our Hari Raya shopping last weekend in our hometown. Have you completed your "Raya Shopping" yet?
While being in a shopping mall in Seksyen 9 Shah Alam recently, GiLoCatur noticed the above Raya decoration. GiLoCatur believes all the shopping malls in the country are decorated to the Hari Raya theme to attract the customers.
What's your favourite "kuih" during the fasting month? The above kuih lidah buaya is one of GiLoCatur's favourites. It is hard to find. It can't be found in most Ramadhan bazaars in Malaysia. It is a tradition for GiLoCatur to buy the kuih when going back hometown. It is very unfortunate that the kids nowadays including GiLoCatur's do not like the traditional food, dish or delicacy (kuih).
GILOCATUR WOULD LIKE TO WISH ALL THE MUSLIMS AROUND THE WORLD, HAPPY EIDUL FITRI. HOPE THE MIGHTY ALLAH BLESS US ALL.
For all the Malaysian chess players especially, have fun and enjoy the on going Malaysian chess festival. And for all the Malaysian juniors that will represent the country in the World Youth Chess Championship in Halkidiki, Greece in three weeks time, keep practising to make our country proud. Show the world that Malaysia can stand tall too in the world chess map.
