Of harmony and the open house...

Image above show a scene at the Raya Open House at our home on the first day of the Hari Raya [Eid Fitri]. Malaysian of all faiths were there enjoying the Eid festival. It is normal in this country for people of different faiths celebrating each other festivals, like Diwali, the Chinese New Year, Christmas, Gawai Dayak and the like. There are even a National Open house for each festival hosted by the Government with the Yang dipertuan Agong and his consort [King and Queen] in attendance. That's my friends is the Malaysian way of life. Have a nice day.

Selamat Hari Raya Pak Idrus!

Berpuasa sebulan, beraya pun sebulan juga :)

Semoga hari raya ini akan mengeratkan lagi silatulrahim sesama kita dan juga bangsa-bangsa yang lain di Malaysia. Let there be more understanding of each other's culture and creed.
