6 Things to Remember for Next Year’s Eid Celebrations
#1. Ensure that at least one Baju Melayu consists of its complete set. (1) Songkok, (2) Sampin, (3) Baju & (4) Seluar. This is to prevent one from realizing some of the attire to be missing at the last minute and subsequently having to utlilize a combination of the Baju Melayu shirt, 8 year old jeans and skullcap. This is also to prevent one’s mother being pissed.
#2. Sleep early. Banging away on the PS2 with one’s brother until the wee hours of the morning is a deterrent to one’s ability to wake up early.
Note to self: There is no way one can beat a 17 year old who grew up whilst having the game pad permanently attached to their hand.
#3. Wake-the-bloody-up at least before 9am so one will be able to perform the Eid prayers. To do so, see #2.
#4. Pace one-self whilst stuffing one’s face. Stomach need to adjust after one month of fasting. Especially when one shoves in the lethal combo of laksa johor, ketupat, rendang , nasi himpit, and taken at one sitting. Failure to do so will result in the frequent visit to loo of every house-owner.
#5. Try to watch more Malay movies. Government, Private as well Sattelite TV stations have paid a shite-load of money in purchasing the rights to show them. The least one can do is to brave through 2 hours of mind-numbing, shite acting and illogical plot lines.
#6. There are abso-bloody-loutely no cars on the road of KL during 1st Syawal. Bliss. Altough one must remember that them foreigners who have taken the opportunity to go sightseeing, are not potential road kills and must not be mowed down indiscriminately.
How was your Raya celebrations?
