Memory Aidilfitri

Celine Dion A New Day Has Come


Being away from beloved family during Aidilfitri is really sad. But have been there many times in the past the experience teaches me to make a choice between to:

enjoy every moment of celebration

or

allow myself to be drowning in emotional crisis, melancholic feeling

This year, my promise to myself is to enjoy every moment of it. My last Aidilfitri here, alone and away from the loved one.

We (my family friends and I) really had an enjoyable Aidilfitri. After Solat in the morning, we visited most friends in town. Believe it or not..a total of 10 houses we visited from morning until night. Walking around in group with colourful outfit really attract other's attention on the street. The bonding that we have with each other is so very close because of limited circle of community. This make the celebration more meaningful. That is also the beauty of Aidilfitri celebration away from our own country and beloved family.

Deep in my heart, I am not pretending that my mind is not thinking about what my beloved one (especially my lil man) are doing at every single moment. But everytime that thots came to my mind, I showered my face with smile and wonderful feeling to know that they are close to my heart. I kept the feeling in my heart and mind whenever I called back home. It was a countless number of calls. Those calls also transmit an enjoyable moment of celebration for my beloved one from a distance.

In short, all of us enjoy every moment of celebration, our memorable Aidilfitri this year.

I am sure you have a memorable one also waiting to be shared.

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Anggerek Merah,

I am so glad you managed to have a good raya after all.

Gosh! I can understand you'd be thinking of Lil man every so often. Afterall he's everything to you..it is ok to always think of someone you love.

Don't worry dear, I find time passes so fast. In no time he'll be in your arms again. What really count is that there is true love and affection. Take care.

Oops that was me up there, didn't want comment with my pix..he he.

Missing someone gets easier every day because even though it's one day further from the last time you saw each other, it's one day closer to the next time you will.

I am glad that you enjoyed your hari raya, eventhough you are missing your love ones...

Take care.

Good to hear you had a good raya there.

I had a share of good one as well. When everything was delivered to the loved ones as what they deserved to have, seeing happy faces around me, entertaining my own thoughts on the beautiful things, so then nothing short from a happy raya.
