Close at hand

Bodyguard & constant companion.

Life in the AA family wouldnt be the same without him <3

Imam's bodyguard

Sleeping partner

I appreciate beauty & fashion as much as  the next person but i so hate shopping. in any kind of weather or any type of condition. and especially when it involves large crowds.

But its raya and the kids look forward to having new clothes come syawal, so brave the elements we did.

The massive jams, the full car parks, the long queues, the crowd of impatient people just waiting to pop a vein. heck, enough to test even the most patient of saints!! but we did it anyway. saturday saw us combing the bazaars of sacc & pkns complex for traditional malay garments and sunday was spent at sunway pyramid for the rest. yup we did it. not for me or golfman bcos neither of us really care about what we'd be putting on our backs but for the kids. its the festive season and we have after all been trying our best to conquer our nafs. surely, there is a need for celebration.

At least that part has been taken care of. i can breathe easy now thank god. bcos i really dont think i'll be doing much in the way of sprucing up the place. we're not the type to get new things for raya. i'm just going to give the place a brief once over bcos i'll be needing my energy for the almost non-stop cooking during eid. we love having family & friends over lol.. and we dont believe in open houses. it might be a convenient way of celebrating eid but it doesnt really leave much room for personal interaction.

So..... are you taking a long raya break peeps?
