Raya is just 2 days away but somehow i did not feel the excitement. I did not go for raya shopping nor did i bake cookies for myself. I did not even apply for eid leave. The festivy mood haven't kick in yet...until now. My brother and my sister are celebrating eid with their in-laws. That leaves me and my younger brother celebrating eid together. I had plan to celebrate eid in PJ but my youngest brother was not agreeable to it. He wanted to celebrate raya at Malacca still. Not having parents to celebrate raya with really make a big difference in my live. Since my parents passed away, my siblings and i have been spending our raya with my aunties at my late grandfather's house which now is being inherited by Mak Busu. Yes, i am lucky that i have a close knit with my aunties but still it is not the same without my parents around. I envy my cousins at this time of the year.
I hope the i will feel the excitement of raya soon.
Selamat Hari Raya to all. Maaf Zahir Batin. Drive safe ya
