selamat hari raya

for some reason
i could never use the word "eid"


i don't think of hari raya much of a religious event
nor do i think of it as much of a celebration

but i love the idea that it promotes
of family and of societal solidarity

and i like that it's called raya

I only started using the word Eid here, but only to non-Malaysians. :)

I like that it promotes family and societal solidarity as well.

Selamat hari raya Faiz, and maaf zahir batin. :)

i think the celebration in malaysia is very special
