Syawal 1437


This post is long overdue, but this blog still serves as an open diary to me anyway so you can scroll past this if you're sick of looking at Raya photos already ! Hahaha. Anyway, my raya this year was a lot more relaxed than my previous Raya(s). I didn't go back to Melaka this year, and basically just raya in KL / Selangor. 


DAY 1

My pagi raya on the first day is always at Aunty Nora's house. We'd go to the masjid for solat sunat raya, and then go back to Aunty Nora's, eat and salam-salam + take pics. After Aunty Nora's place, we'd then go to my step dad's grandmother's house in PJ, followed by his parents' house in Bangsar. My step dad's family is huuuuge, because his family is super close, even with his aunties / uncles / cousins. I love the atmosphere at my stepdad's grandma's house. 







My boys ! 














I didn't match with the family that's why it's B&W hahaha



DAY 2


We had family from my step dad's side come over to our place on the second day, and that petang we went to his relative's house in Sungai Buloh for a barbecue haha. 
It was such a nice day out ! 





The number one person in my life is my mama. 



Kyra has the hugest crush on my brother, its the cutest thing how she gets so nervous hahaha 





DAY 3 



I didn't get to raya with papa's side of the family yet, so I invited all of my cousins to come over. Mama cooked lontong, and we all ate + munched on kuih raya, watched a bit of tv, played with Inaayah our baby niece, and took many pictures together with Kak Lyn & Kak Yan's Canon 5D Mark II + 50mm lens so that's why all of our pictures that day was so so cantik. I only edited like 1 picture (the one I uploaded on Instagram) down there, the rest are all the camera + lens' work ! I desperately need a 45mm / 50mm lens in my life. 
But anyway, it was a day filled with 90% laughter (you can probably tell after scrolling through these pics. Most of it are laughing ones hahah).


Blurry but my fav

"omg omg what is she doing" hahaha

Only Kak Long is married and has a baby amongst us cousins, so obviously Inaayah is always centre of attention !





Kudos to Zicky for capturing this, man. Such a nice candid !!!













































Okay, I gotta go get ready for Farah's open house now. 
Raya still hasn't ended for me ! x

    1. Hili ! Thank you ! Most of them were last minute outfits / Zalora purchases haha. And noooo I'm not that tall, it's the power of the wedges I was wearing ! And also because my kain panjang sangat, so they cover my shoes and make me appear taller.. hehe. Selamat hari raya to you too, love !

    1. Hi Nafisah ! So sweet of you to say that, thank you for the compliment and I'm glad you've been enjoying my Raya posts haha. I get my shawls from everywhere, really. Like in this post, my Day 1 shawl was literally from a random Carouseller who sold chiffon tudungs for like 7 or 8 ringgit. I was desperate for a white one so I just bought it and it turned out kinda nice. Day 2 (the mint coloured one) is from Irfan, my boyfriend. It was one of my birthday gifts last year haha. And my Day 3 is from @crease.co on Instagram. I swear by the sikka shawls from Crease. They're so so nice to wear. I also have a few shawls from @jetaimeshawls on Instagram that I love. InsyaAllah, I'll do a shawl tutorial post soon :) xx

    1. Hii ! Thank you ! Oh it's actually a teal green pario, and I got it in Bali back in 2012.. try looking for them on Instagram ! I'm sure there's plenty of insta shops that sell pario(s) like that online :)
