Eidul fitri 2015

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته and good day!

Alhamdulillah, infinite praises be to Allah swt for giving all His blessing, for being alive, for making me able to update this blog. Last Friday was the eid celebration for muslim all over the world (some parts celebrate on Saturday), marking the end of Ramadhan. 

SubahanAllah! 29 days went by so fast. Fasting for 19 hours seem so easy now. This year, will be my second year celebrating eid away from home and my family. However, the festivity is just as grand here as it would be back home. 

1st Day of Raya

We went for prayer at the East London Mosque this year because we were late to catch the prayer at the Malaysian High Commission. However, we still go there to take some pictures...again. huhu..

I love seeing a lot of Malaysians gather together here for one day. You can see the massive amount of Malaysians here in London on this day.

After that, we went to the Royal Albert Hall for some photo shoots. hehe...


This will be perfect to be sent for 'salam perantau' next year. LOL

After that we walked to Queen's Gate Terrace to go the one of Mara's officer, En. Shahril's open house.

We were lucky because we arrived just after a big group left.

So it was just us and Mara's director, Tn. Hj. Wahab's family. This pic is with Kak Wan (En. Shahril's wife) and Aunty Nor (Tn. Hj. Wahab's wife).

After that, we went to Chinatown.

As last year, we visited my Mak Lang at her store, Kuala Lumpur Cafe.

The main purpose is for these...Lontong @ London and Chatime..Weehuu!!

The best thing about eid in London is that, you can go for a visit with public transport. It brings back memories when I was at school.

Our last stop for that day is to the Brunei's TYT open house. On our way, we passed the Kensington Olympia where they held comic-con and met these two awesome guys with their costumes and decided to take a picture with them. haha..

We met a lot of great people at the TYT's open house including the Brunei Hall's chef. The TYT and the Datin were super nice and kind. Superb host, great food!!

2nd Day of RAYA

On the second day, we invited friends to come over for Raya Breakfast (It's gonna be a thing after this..hehe).

After that, with our guests, we moved to Rumah Malaysia's open house which was hosted by the embassador and Education Malaysia. 

This year, the makan2 was held the next day because Eid was on Friday and will make it difficult for men to perform Friday Prayer.

There were a lot of people showed up for the open house, from various backgrounds. They opened a tent outside to accommodate the people because the house was under renovation.

This is the inside of the house.

We only get to meet the embassador before we went back.

Thank you for having us!

3rd Day of Raya

During our visit to En. Shahril's house, Tn. Hj. Wahab and Aunty Nor invited us to come over to their house on Sunday, which is today. Their house is actually in the same flat. 

There were soooo many people that came. The food was awesome. Aunty Nor cooked Nasi Kerabu and Laksam (a traditional Kelantanese dish).

Photo shoot before leaving...=D

After that, we went to visit another officer's house which was actually located near my house.

Their house was super gorgeous!

Thank you ustazah for having us!

Last but not least, we went to Brunei Hall's open house. huhu...continuous eating.

Thanks to Kak As who worked there, we get a chance to eat here..=D

Photo shoot with Paddington Bear. 

Earlier in the day, my bestie have been wanting to go to the Magnum Pleasure Store to try it out

Eventhough we were super tired and full, we went there anyway because this store is only open until August and we weren't sure when we can come here after this.

There were lines out the door, but we didn't mind. The store is located beside the Royal Opera House.

You get to choose either vanilla or raspberry ice cream and choose your topping. Nyum3

This is how they do it.

At least my bestie enjoyed it. ok...so did I..=3

Just so you know, this is how the Londoners celebrate eid. huhu...

I'm not kidding. This funfair is for eid celebration. 

Until next time...
