Of Hari Raya Open house...

From time to time we would open our house to friends and strangers on the Hari Raya or Eid Fitri. This year we play host to a numbers of friends, a few I had known only in cyberspace like Facebook and Blog.

The Open House is a Malaysian concept of celebrating one another festivals in a more organized way. Visiting friends and relatives on this auspicious festival is on a basis of no invitations; folks could come anytime to visit and all are welcome. In an Open House the happening is made simple since folks are told of the time of the Open House. And as a host one get to meet many visitors in one go. It would be hectic but to me it is an enjoyable event that happens once in while. And we love playing host.

As for this year let these images speak for itself the charm and warmth of friends at our home on the first day of Hari Raya. The event started at 12:30PM and ended at past 10PM in the evening when the last guest leave.

Thanks folks for coming over. Both Asmah and I are happy that you all could come over and share the joy and happiness with us on this blessed day.

One of the guest, a blogger wrote about her visit to our home. Here is her take....

Have a nice day.
